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.
**Due to the TCT preamp being out of Bartolini's normal production, we are offering them professionally wired in the Fat Bass Tone shop. These preamps are wired to Bartolini's specifications using Bartolini's quality components. Since they are wired in our shop, they do not come in Bartolini's retail packaging.
