Overview

Basslines STC-2C-BO Blackouts Tone Circuits are for nearly all bass guitars, due to their selectable treble frequency. You can use Blackouts Tone Circuits with either active or passive bass pickups.

STC-2C-BO Blackouts onboard Tone Circuits add tremendous tonal versatility. Use them to add or subtract EQ at center frequencies voiced specifically for the electric bass. Blackouts Tone Circuits offer low noise, low distortion, and high headroom. In addition, they are voiced for use with Blackouts for Bass Pickups, but with their switchable treble control, they're useful for all musical styles and genres.

The lows are deep, clear, and tight. There are 2 treble frequency centers to choose from. The lower setting is perfect for adding growl and bite to traditional P (precision), J (jazz), and MM (music man) bass tones. The higher setting provides a crystal clear top end to modern-sounding, full-frequency bass tones and when used with Blackouts for Bass Pickups, gives punishing clarity without brittleness.

The STC-2C-BO is mounted to a concentric potentiometer, which can replace your tone knob with no need for additional holes in your bass guitar. Basslines includes all necessary mounting hardware, such as: high-quality potentiometers on a pre-wired harness; a battery clip; a stereo jack; and black anodized, knurled, dome-style knobs.

Comments about Basslines STC-2C-BO Blackouts Tone Circuit with Concentric Bass and Treble Knobs:

Installed to replace the factory tone control in a Squier VM Bass VI. I replaced the instrument's stock 1Meg volume pot with a CTS 500K audio taper and have great results with it feeding the Duncan circuit. I primarily use this circuit at the center detent/flat setting where it seems to be pretty transparent relative to the original passive configuration. Setting the switch to the lower treble frequency (3.1K) rolls off very similar to the stock tone control (1Meg/.047uF). The bass control when fully counter clockwise also is very similar to the sound of the strangle circuit engaged-so close that I will be using the strangle switch for series/parallel pickup selection. This can be hissy when boosting the treble, but I don't do that as the bass is bright enough. The bass knob boosted adds a fatness the Bass VI cannot do when stock and that really expands the tonal options of this instrument.
I really like this circuit, it's well built, sounds good and not very expensive. Just make sure you have a control cavity that is 1" wide and a touch more than 1" deep to accommodate the circuit.
