Tone Shapers

el Vie 27 Abr - 19:37
Esta placa la compre hace un par de años creo, quiza los puristas del tono se esten persinando, pero a los que les gusta experimentar y probar diferentes valores de capacitores, y la opcion de poder configurar los pickups en serire, paralelo y demás puede ser de lo mas util, es pasivo no ocupa nada mas que un desarmador, por lo que cambiar pickups nunca fue mas sencillo





Pimp My Strat
ToneShaper replaces your Strat's stock wiring, quickly and easily, without soldering. It provides increased flexibility that you cannot get with any other product. Cool switching options. Customizable tone controls. Built-in solutions for dealing with treble loss that happens when you turn down. Simple installation, simple operation, top-quality components.

Dial It In
We're now offering the ToneShaper with a choice of pots. We recently had some new pots made by CTS, so we're offering them in these units. We have 250k pots in the standard 1/4" bushing length that is appropriate for pickguard-mounting, and we also have a longer 1/2" bushing length that's appropriate for rear-routed guitars, where the bushing must be long enough to pass through the wood top of the guitar and still allow you to install the flat washer and nut on the face of the guitar. The traditional bushing length on pots used for these rear-rout installations is 3/8", but we've found that to be too short for many bodies, including rear-routed Strat and Tele bodies we've seen from the major aftermarket suppliers out there like Warmoth. So we ordered ours from CTS with 1/2" bushings, so you won't have any surprises. Understand that we're talking about the lengths of the bushings here, not their diameters. The bushing diameter on all of our CTS pots is 3/8", with a 3/8-32 thread.

We'll have the 500k versions of the ToneShaper soon, also with long and short pot options. One problem you'll find with most CTS 500k pots out there is that they have the flat back design that is commonly used in Gibson guitars. These pots use CTS' high torque design, which means the pot is harder to turn. Their low torque design has the dimpled back, also known as a tip-bearing cover. This is what you're used to seeing in Strats and Teles, and this is what all of our Strat ToneShapers will use, whether 250k or 500k, long or short.

Please make your selection from the menu above. Options, baby, options.

Top Quality
This unit features top-quality components such as a USA-made, 4-layer circuit board. The two outer layers are ground planes that shield the internal circuitry from Electromagnetic Interference and Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI). This is the state-of-the-art. We went top-drawer, because we knew you'd want it to be quiet.

The pots are 250k CTS audio-taper with split shafts, custom-made for this application. The switch used is the same CRL model Fender started with, back in 1954. The Switchcraft model 11 jack is the industry standard. We've used all the best brands, because we know tone is important to you.

We know what the good stuff is.

Easy To Install
Mount the ToneShaper and switch to your standard Fender pickguard (fits Callaham too, as well as most other brands). Your pickup leads and assorted ground wires just plug right in - quickly and easily - with press-and-release terminals. There is NO SOLDERING required. These connectors are simple to use, don't degrade the signal quality, and hold the wire very securely. Enjoy swapping pickups in and out of your guitars? Then you're going to love the connectors on the ToneShaper!
