    Has anyone used a Darkglass Tone Capsule preamp with a bass that does not have knobs for seperate bass, mid, treble? I have a Spector Rebop 4mm with three knobs (1-master volume/push-pull 2-bass 3-treble). I am not a fan of the tonepump preamp and am looking to go a different route.

    I noticed that the supplied pots and board have proprietary connectors and looks like I would need to have 4 knobs in order to be able to use the preamp. Can the tone capsule be modified to use a stacked knob pot?
     
  2. Yes, but you'd need to measure the pots they send you & get the same values for your concentric pot, or ask them in advance what values to use, or even ask if they can supply a concentric pot.

    Okay thanks, I was concerned because it has that “emg type” connectors and I didn’t know if these were proprietary to Darkglass that would make it so a regular concentric pot setup would work
     
  4. You'd need to cut off the connectors & solder the wires to a regular concentric pot.
