An onboard preamp that doubles up on the mids for more natural flavor.

The Tone Capsule is an unusual, but effective take on onboard preamplifiers. Its designed to respect your instruments natural character while expanding exponentially the tonal possibilities.

How is it unique? It doesnt have a Treble control. The idea was Sheldon Dingwalls (Dingwall Guitars). 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. This second control was 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.

  • 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)
  • Hi Mids: +-12dB 2.8kHz (potentiometer included)
