Tone Capsule

The Tone Capsule is a new, unusual take on onboard preamplifiers. It's designed to respect your instrument's natural character while expanding exponentially the tonal possibilities.

The Tone Capsule is unique in the way that it doesn't have a Treble control. The idea was Sheldon Dingwall's: he thought that making a Bass-Mid-Treble was too normal for his liking because everyone does it that way, so he suggested including a second mid control instead.

We loved the idea! Specially because the second control could be configured to operate at the higher end of the spectrum, offering all the benefits a standard Treble control (increased clarity and definition when boosting) but with a more natural, less-harsh and noiseless operation.

Take the pill and discover a whole new universe of sonic possibilities.


  • 9 - 18V Operation: The Tone Capsule can function with either one battery (9v), or two batteries in series (18v). Battery clips are not included.
  • Bass:+-12dB @70Hz (Potentiometer included)
  • Mids:+-12dB @500Hz (Potentiometer included)
  • Hi Mids:+-12dB 2.8kHz (Potentiometer included)

Please Note:

Volume & blend potentiometers as well as battery clip and output jack are not supplied. If you require potentiometers to complete your installation including any possible stacked controls for the EQ potentiometers please visit our potentionmeters page.
