   General installation and wiring instructions

All ToneStylers have 1/2" MID-length 3/8"-32 dia USA bushings and 24-fine-spline USA tips. These hybrid tips are solid, not split-shaft. As such, they cannot be "adjusted" with a screwdriver & pliers to fit undersized, oversized, new, used, shrunken, stripped or stretched-out acrylic push-on knobs. Before installing your new control, test-fit your tone knob. Never force any knob on any control - you may break it! If tight, push the knob on part-way, then remove... repeat several times, until it pushes all the way into final position without using great pressure. If loose, stick a very small strip of thin plastic or paper tape over the control tip, and test-fit the knob - add more tape strips until a snug fit is created.

If you are using set-screw knobs, add the supplied 1/4" brass sleeve for a perfect fit with 1/4" hole USA knobs. If you are using the smaller 6mm hole set-screw knobs, skip the brass sleeve - the splined-solid tip is already the correct size for metric knobs.




ToneStyler GUITAR and BASS TEN:

Each ToneStyler G-10 & B-10 cable contains one RED signal wire. Connect the RED wire directly to the pickup's hot wire, where it's presently soldered in your bass or guitar.

Alternately, solder the RED wire to the hot output of a pickup selector switch or blend pot... but only when located before the pickup signals have passed through any volume pots. Never connect a RED ToneStyler wire to the output of any volume pot... and never connect it to the output jack of your instrument! This doesn't work.

Each ToneStyler G-10 & B-10 cable also contains one CLEAR "floating ground" wire. This important wire completes the ToneStyler's internal tone circuit; it doesn't provide any hum or noise prevention.  The CLEAR floating ground wire allows for additional installation flexibility, such as required in instruments featuring series/parallel pickup switching.  Each floating ground wire must be soldered to the same connection point where the pickup coil's neutral wire is soldered, or the ToneStyler will not function.

Each ToneStyler G-10 & B-10 cable contains one stranded copper shield wire, which is electrically-common to the metal casing and mounting bushing... and after installation, connects to the guitar's conductive mounting surface. For hum and noise prevention, solder the stranded copper shield wire to the pickup cable's ground wire, which is typically found soldered to a metal volume pot case.

For typical installations, separate connection points for the CLEAR and stranded copper shield wires are unnecessary; only one combined ground point is required. Simply twist & solder the ToneStyler's CLEAR and stranded copper shield ground wires together, and solder both wires to the pickup wire's ground point... exactly where it's presently soldered in your bass or guitar.
