About the ToneStyler
The ToneStyler® is an advanced drop-in replacement for the standard tone pot in the electric guitar. Easily installed in minutes without any modifications to the instrument, the ToneStyler dramatically improves the tone and versatility of any guitar with passive pickups. Since the ToneStyler fits your guitar's original tone knob, your tone upgrade is invisible.
Your old tone pot has only one capacitor, which offers only one roll‑off point, chosen just above the bass frequencies. The tone pot functions as a volume control to reduce the loudness of all frequencies above the bass tones. To make matters worse, that large value capacitor loads the pickup at all tone knob settings, which reduces mid-range clarity and signal level.
In sharp contrast, the revolutionary ToneStyler has not one, but an array of six, ten, eleven or sixteen selectable capacitors and roll-off points, including "true bypass" on some models. For the first time, players can adjust the frequency of the roll-off point... not simply the overall loudness of mids & highs. You choose exactly how much treble & midrange to retain, and where to cut it off. Plus, the small value capacitors greatly reduce pickup loading; this noticeably boosts your guitar's clarity and output level.
Powerful and precise control of treble & mid frequencies is provided at last... and that weak, muddy sound is completely eliminated!
