Control Configuration

  1. Treble/Bass Stack

Why not equip your bass with the most widely used EQ System in the world? With the BTC you’ll get a bass and treble equalizer on a concentric (stacked) pot that will work with any pickup, active or passive, and takes up almost no space.

Often preferred for their less selective, easier on the ear, and musical sound, the BTC features single-pole filters for broadband equalization. And with the two-position dip-switch you'll be able to choose one of the four combinations to find a high-frequency response to your liking.

All controls are conveniently center detented for an easy return to normal tone and use the latest in surface mount technology.

One of the features of the BTC Control is a 2-position dip switch that controls the slope of the high frequency response
