I chose the tone drop because I wanted to maintain a passive tone without spending a great deal of cash. This option has struck the sweet spot between a tonestyler and an active preamp. All of the marketing rhetoric aside, this is a tone pot that allows you to select (via push/pull technology) which frequency you want to play with; .1uf or .047uf. The results for me were very noticeable and appreciated. I added the pot to my fretless jazz bass and the tone is much sweeter than with the stock pots in place. I think it would make an even larger splash if installed in a fretted bass, which I may try for a friend's bass in the near future. I would recommend giving this a go if you're curious about what lies between stock pots and a battery powered rig.
Also of note, I ordered the tone drop along with the prewired set of pots/jack offered by Fat Bass Tone, and requested it to replace the standard pot included. I was very impressed with the quality work, and timely shipping. This was the best way I could have added the tone drop to my arsenal. Thanks and shout out to Max for the excellent work!
