DESCRIPTION

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. Darkglass 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.

The Tone Capsule is available in the standard configuration sold by Darkglass as well as custom configurations that we have assembled for customer ease.

Our custom configurations can also be ordered as a prewired harness for easier installation.

Standard kit includes:

  • Tone Capsule Module
  • 3 EQ Pots and associated connector cables

Custom kits include:

  • Tone Capsule Module
  • Potentiometers and switches (if applicable)
  • Stereo Jack
  • 2 Battery Clips

Standard/Custom kits do not include:

  • Pickups
  • Knobs

We use black round bat switches in configurations where a switch is included

When pre-wired, the harness is wired for 9V operation

**Sorry international bassists, but US Dealers are not authorized to ship Darkglass preamps outside of the US.
