Stellartone... the World's Best Tone Controls.


"Addictive... a great drop-in replacement for your old tone knob... a practical tool that enhanced the guitar's flexibility and sonic quality... the ToneStyler is the way to go. Gold award for overall value." - Guitar World Magazine

"The ToneStyler BASS will astound you with its purely analog, battery-free expanded tonal capabilities... the darker settings retained the note definition and punch that was lost with the original passive tone control."- JazzTimes Magazine

"I was knocked out by how natural sounding all the settings were... like turning one guitar into a variety of different brands, types, and models... a valuable tool for carving out sonic space in a live or recorded mix." - Premier Guitar Magazine

"The ToneStyler profoundly broadens the range of possible tones from a passive instrument... a noticeably more aggressive midrange punch... rich low tones ring more clearly... earning it a BASS PLAYER Editor Award." - Bass Player Magazine


About the ToneStyler... and why you need one!


The ToneStyler® is an advanced drop-in replacement for the standard tone pots in electric guitars and basses. Easily installed in minutes without any modifications to the instrument, the ToneStyler dramatically improves the tone and versatility of any guitar or bass with passive pickups. Plus, the ToneStyler fits your instrument's original tone knob, so your tone upgrade is invisible!

Your old tone pot is a "low-pass filter"; it has only one capacitor, which offers only one roll‑off point, chosen just above the bass frequencies and string fundamental pitches. Due to this very simple design, passive tone pots act as "mid+treble volume controls"... reducing the loudness of all combined harmonics heard above the bass tones, all at the same time! To make matters worse, the tone pot's large value capacitor loads the pickups at all tone knob settings, which reduces your mid-range clarity and signal level.

In sharp contrast, the revolutionary ToneStyler has not one, but an array of six to eleven selectable capacitors and roll-off points. For the first time, players can adjust the frequency of the roll-off point... not simply the combined loudness of all mids+highs! You choose how much treble to retain... how much mid-range to retain... and exactly where to cut these harmonics off. Plus, the ToneStyler's small value capacitors greatly reduce pickup loading; this noticeably boosts your guitar's clarity and output level.

Powerful and precise control of treble & mid frequencies is provided at last... and that weak, muddy sound is completely eliminated!



StellarTone

StellarTone introduces a unique concept in passive tone shaping with the StellarTone tonestyler's for bass and guitar. Designed and built in the US and utilising high quality Military Spec Rotary Switches with Gold Contacts and Terminals, low capacitance shielding, and a compact size the StellarTone tonestylers are a phenomenal product that builds on the high impedance passive analog tone characteristics of your current passive bass. These units for bass and guitar boast a quality analog designed circuit with zero noise, compression, distortion, or clipping of your signal and install cleanly in place of your current single capacitor tone control.

These new BASS and STANDARD ToneStylers are offered with either six or ten EQ positions, and either our original single circuit design, or our new & unique dual pickup circuit with dual shielded cables and dual EQ ranges, individually optimised for neck & bridge pickup harmonics.



  1. 1.

The tone of each pickup is governed by an individual ToneStyler / tone control. This option gives you greater flexibility with the tone setting of each pickup.
A combination of Bass 6 / 10 / 11 can be used.


When you’re on stage, you may need only a few different tones from your bass guitar, and want to change the sound rapidly while playing. In this case you may prefer the simplicity of a 6-position ToneStyler. For studio work or recording, however, you’d probably opt for the greater range and finer graduation of tones between bright and dark of a 10- or 11-position ToneStyler.  Incompatible with low-impedance, piezo  or active pickups. The shafts do not fit coarse (18-spline) push-on plastic knobs. Item Codes ending with “-S” have a short shaft for set-screw knobs. Check your bass guitar first, unless you’re willing to change its knobs and are sure the shaft is long enough.




100% pure analogue high-impedance high-Q passive tone circuitry, with zero noise, distortion, compression or clipping. Heavy-duty sealed military-spec rotary switch with gold contacts and terminals. Low-profile colour-coded solid-cast metallized polymer modules require only 15/16" (23.813mm) depth inside the instrument's control compartment. Compact cylindrical shape has the same 15/16" (23.813mm) diameter as a standard full-sized CTS potentiometer. ToneStylers provide an easy, drop-in replacement of any standard tone pot with a 3/8" (9.525mm) diameter USA bushing; no modifications or routing required. The moulded-in colour-coded low-capacitance shielded cable provides a quick, simple connection: Just solder the cable directly to the input lug of a pickup volume or a master volume pot. No bass schematics required; all other controls and wiring remain unchanged. Complete with mounting hardware and instructions. Wired by hand in USA.

If your electric bass guitar has two pickups and two tone controls, you can choose either of two ToneStyler options:


  1. 1.A single Bass Duo 6 ─ B-D6-S
    The tone of both pickups is governed by one tone knob, freeing the second knob for any other use. This option gives your bass guitar a greater overall range of resonance, because the bridge pickup’s tone circuits have a higher resonance range than the neck pickup’s.

  2. 2.One or two Bass 6 ─ B-6-S / Bass 10 ─ B-10-S / Bass 11 ─ B-11
    The tone of each pickup is governed by an individual ToneStyler / tone control. This option gives you greater flexibility with the tone setting of each pickup. A combination of Bass 6 / Bass 10 / Bass 11 can be used.
