Spector Version;

Take the capsule, feel the groove

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 and Mark Stickley’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. We loved the idea! Specially because the second control 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.


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).

Spector version has internal mid adjustment pot for 4 pot installation
