For 2013, Stellartone introduces eight brand-new ToneStylers; four versions for bass, and four versions for guitar.

These new BASS and STANDARD ToneStylers are offered with either six or ten EQ positions, and either our original single circuit design, or our new & unique dual pickup circuit with dual shielded cables and dual EQ ranges, individually optimized for neck & bridge pickup harmonics.

The Duo models are intended for applications with control configurations of two volumes and a single master tone.

The Standard models are intended for applications with control configurations with single master volume and tone.

The ToneStyler Bass 11 model has an additional setting called 'Flat Bypass'. Additionally the B11 has a longer bushing much more easily suitable for mounting in basses with thicker wood tops.

*** Not compatible with low-impedance or active (battery-powered) pickups ***


The all new ToneStyler features:

  • *Heavy-duty mil-spec rotary switches with gold contacts and terminals,made in the U.S.A. by Grayhill, Inc.

  • *1/4" solid "D" shaft (with a flat for ease in indexing set-screw knobs)

  • *U.S. Standard 3/8"-32 diameter x 5/16" Mid-Length bushings, for mounting through instrument surfaces no thicker than 3/16"

  • *The traditional and popular "notched rotation" mechanical design

  • *New compact cylindrical shape has the same 15/16" diameter as a standard full-sized CTS potentiometer

  • *Low-profile solid-cast metalized epoxy module requires only 7/8" depth in the control compartment

  • *Molded-in low capacitance shielded cable by Mogami

  • *High-impedance passive analog tone circuitry with zero noise, distortion, compression or clipping

  • *Complete with mounting hardware and instructions

  • *100% hand-wired and manufactured in the U.S.A. by Stellartone

About the ToneSyler Control

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 or sixteen selectable capacitors and roll-off points, including "true bypass". 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!
