Darkglass Tone Capsule Onboard Bass Preamp

Discover a new universe of sonic possibilities by installing a powerful Darkglass preamp directly into your bass guitar with the Tone Capsule Bass Preamp.
Super charge your bass! The Darkglass Tone Capsule is an unusual take on onboard preamps. Designed to respect your instrument's natural character while expanding tonal possibilities.

The Tone Capsule is unique in the way that it doesn't have a Treble control. The idea was Sheldon Dingwall's: he thought that making a Bass-Mid-Treble was too normal for his liking because everyone does it that way, so he suggested including a second mid control instead. Specially because the second control could be configured to operate at the higher end of the spectrum, offering all the benefits a standard Treble control (increased clarity and definition when boosting) but with a more natural, less-harsh and noiseless operation. Take the pill and discover a whole new universe of sonic possibilities.

9V-18V operation: The Tone Capsule can function with either one or two batteries in series for 9V or 18V operation respectively (battery clips not included).

Bass: +/-12dB @70Hz (potentiometer included).

Mids: +/-12dB @500Hz (potentiometer included).

Hi Mids: +/-12dB 2.8kHz (potentiometer included).

I had this install in my Ibanez SRMS805 (also purchased from zZounds) and let me tell you what, it brought the tone from pretty good, incredible. Paired with the bk7, it’s a really quality option to a Dingwall.
