Hey...where'd my treble go??!!

Is the tone on your guitar or bass getting muddy or dark as you roll off the volume? This is an unfortunate side effect of the natural behavior of potentiometers, pickups, and cables. As you roll off the volume, a "low pass filter" is created. The result is that your tone will get inconsistently darker as you lower the volume.

A Treble Bleed circuit (or, "high pass filter") will help retain highs as you roll off the volume of your guitar or bass.

This listing is for a Suhr-designed circuit, using a 680pf capacitor, and 150k ohm resistor - wired in parallel.

There are tons of different recipes for treble bleed circuits - and this is one of them. The different capacitor and resistor values will yield varying results from one circuit design to another. As tone is a personal thing - there is no "right" combination...it's all a matter of personal preference.

(I have lots of different treble bleed circuits - check my other listings for more options.)


This listing is for ONE assembled treble bleed mod circuit.

Shipped via USPS First Class in protective packaging. I will always combine shipping on multiple orders. Reverb hasn't figured out combined shipping in the cart yet - so I'll refund any additional shipping when I process the order.
