    I just bought this from a fellow TBer but It won't fit in my Squier P5 and I dont want to to route so I'm moving it forward. It was professionally uninstalled.

    The new P-Retro from East UK is a P-bass style active/passive preamp equalizer that is be installed without permanently modifying your bass. The P-Retro fits in easily, and uses screw terminals, so no soldering is necessary. Therefore, no physical modifications to your bass are required.

    The P-Retro features two stacked knobs with pull switches on each. The regular volume control on a P-bass becomes the Volume/Tone Stack, and functions as a passive pickup. Pulling up on the Volume control switches in the active circuit, and adds 2.5dB of gain with a flat response.

    When in active mode, how do the knobs function?
