Control Configuration

  1. Volume
  2. Blend
  3. Treble/Bass Stack

As a complete control system for 2 pickup basses the BTC includes an Active Bass control, a BTC control, and a Master Volume control.

The Active Balance control is designed specifically for EMG Active Pickups and allows for a loss-free balance between two pickups. The control comes with convenient center detents for quickly finding middle position.

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.

I bought this item when I was doing an overhaul on this old Samick 5 string a got from a friend of mine I play in a band with. It had 2 volume knobs and a a tone control. I wanted it to have a single volume and pickup blend control. I am Truly Impressed with this product. It totally made a difference with the stacked bass/treble control as well. The possibilities in tone are virtually endless. Hooking it all up was real simple. No soldering at all. Just plug in the wires and yer done!!

EMG BIT preamp

What a fine machine. I put this in my 20 year old Guild Pilot Bass with active EMG PJ pickups. Previously it just had 2 volumes and a tone, the sound was good but now it is spectacular. The install went well I called EMG to ask for some additional connectors,[ because my bass is old it wasn't just a straight drop in]and they mailed them right away no charge no problems. Get it!
I should also add that bestbassgear had the best price and fast delivery.
