Product Description

The Tone Capsule is a new, unusual take on onboard preamplifiers. It’s designed to respect your instrument’s natural character while expanding exponentially the 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. 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.

Darkglass Tone Capsule Onboard Bass Preamp Features

  • 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)

Product Review

I put this in a Warwick 5 string Corvette $$$. To accomplish this, I removed the tone pot, and drilled 2 more holes for the extra 2 pots that comes with this pre. The hole for the original tone pot had to be drilled out to fit the new pots. All that said, the tone improvement was worth it. Richer on the low end, able to dial in an aggressive mid range and add some growl. The wiring was easy, and the diagrams for the additional wiring needed easy to follow. All in all happy with the preamp and the tone it gave my bass.
