Bartolini TCT 3 Band Preamps

Notify me when this product is available:

• TCT is the original Bartolini on-board pre-amp. 

  • Widely known as preamp used by Marcus Miller, the TCT is legendary. It has vintage FMV (Fender/Marshall/Vox) frequency controls so each band affects the others and if all bands are set to minimum, the output is muted. The TCT is a vintage, complex product for professional use only.

    Currently only available in the TCT-5.4AP configuration, with a push-pull switch on the volume pot so you can quickly pull to bypass the preamp completely.

  • TCT-5.4AP - 2 Pickup - 5 Knob & 1 Switch (Vpp-Bl-T-M-B-MSW)
    Volume w/Active-Passive Push-Pull -- Blend -- Treble -- Mid -- Bass -- Mid Frequency Selection Switch
