2-Pickup 3-Band System
The NOLL TCM 3 is a compact equalizer that provides easy and space-saving installation. Bass, midrange and treble controls are center-detented and allow 15dB of boost and cut with a gentle slope of 6dB per octave which results in a natural and true sound.
The TCM3 includes the Volume (Push-Pull Active/Passive), Blend control, jack, and battery clip. The Treble, Midrange, and Bass controls are prewired with high flexible cables.
Some soldering for Volume and blend are required. Knobs are not included.
This equalizer can be powered with a minimum 9-volt battery, or 18v to ensure more headroom and longer battery life.
The NOLL TMC 3 can be combined with either active or passive pickups.
Potentiometers have a 6mm solid shaft, while any stacked control has 4mm upper, and 6mm lower solid shafts.
This preamp is recommended for a 5-knob control layouts.
The low impedance output of the TCM 3 provides other great features. You can run a cable for up to 100 feet (30 m) without losing high frequency response.

The previous reviewer - OldBassist - said it right. Just buy it. You won't be disappointed.
NOLL TCM3, a great, affordable preamp

Tone controls at 40Hz, 400Hz, and 4kHz, my favorite turnover frequencies.
Very transparent: It sounds virtually the same in Active mode (with all controls centered) as it does in Passive mode.
Just buy it! It does everything right and does nothing wrong.
My new "go to" onboard preamp. I will buy this again. And again.
