Active Circuit Onboard Effects, BCU Tone Expander
Tone Shaper Band Control Unit for Tone Control
Expansion Unit for Guitar or Bass

Get multi-tasking tone control for improvement of your natural resonance characteristics with this BCU On-Board Tone Control. From bright and crisp to fat and warm, tone shaper onboard effects can help you achieve the sound you’re looking for in your playing. You can use this unit by itself or with other effects on the same battery.

The BCU specifically pairs well with blues and vintage styles as well as any other genre requiring the performance obtained by utilizing one of these expansion units. From 0 – 10, you’ll get a range of possibilities not typically possible without the help of this unit.
*In Position 0, you’ll have a richer, fatter, warmer sound by reducing highs and lows while boosting mid-range gain. This allows for a thicker humbucker sound, even from your single coil pickup.
*In Position 5, experience a boost in your harmonics and sustain by slightly shifting the mid-high and reducing gain in the mid-low band.
*In Position 10, you’ll get a brighter, more distinct tone from suppressing the mid-range while boosting low and high frequencies. This is great for power bass and treble.

This on board effect active circuit control for passive or active pickups replaces one of your existing tone pots. It uses a small (dime sized / mini pot), long-shaft, body mount, push-pull on-off engagement control pot. It features a split shaft that will work with most coarse knurled, 18-spline style knobs. This pot style allows you to bypass the unit by pulling up on the knob. An optional add-on Stereo Style Jack can be wired to break your circuit, disconnecting your battery signal thus helping reduce drainage and improve battery life. Be sure to check out this product’s details and dimensions prior to purchase to check for compatibility with your set-up.
