Details

The Active Voiced 2-band preamp adds a tremendous amount of on-board tonal versatility to any dual pickup fretless bass. Its design enables players to boost or cut specifically focused frequencies in order to achieve signature tones, and to dial in a great sound no matter what the situation.

The STC-2PSB features bass and treble controls, a master volume, a blend control, and a special frequency contour switch. This preamp was voiced by Steve Bailey to have two bands of focused EQ, together with a switch that engages a frequency contour optimized to bring out fretless harmonics as well as mid-range boost. The frequency contour is engaged by pulling up of the volume control. The treble control produces a wide ranging, extremely usable response that is brilliant, yet smooth without being brittle. Reduce the bass control to tighten up a boomy instrument, or increase it to add warmth and punch. Two small trim pots on the circuit board can be tweaked to preset the slap contour EQ just the way you want.

The STC-2PSB is voiced to work in any bass that has two active pickups, and space for 3 control knobs and a single 9v battery in the control cavity. Two 9v batteries can be wired together in series for added headroom.

Includes
  • All necessary mounting hardware
  • High-quality potentiometers on pre-wired harness
  • Battery clip
  • Black anodized, knurled, dome-style knobs
