Richter JB-VBT Preamp - JB plate replacement for Jazz bass

The RICHTER JB PASSIVE control plate is an easy mounting component for passive bass guitars like the Jazz Bass TM. It provides a volume pot, a balance pot and one tone control pot. A shielded PCB replace the wiring - therefore no shielding inside the instrument is required.

Two screw terminals for easy and solder free connection of two pickups and three additional screws to fix the control plate are a guarantee for quick mounting on your instrument - ideal for luthiers and replacement. This unit can be mounted up to ten times faster than a hand wiring is done.

With the high quality dustproof pots you won't have any problems with cracking noise during lifetime while turning the knob. The passive tone control is equipped with a film capacitor / COG capacitor which achieves the best sound quality because of low losses and high linearity.
