I'll have a prototype in the morning. Should be around $5 - $10 in parts.Originally Posted by LSP
Basically, all this is, is a 16 position mini-rotary switch, like what you'll find here. Rather than using a variable resistor, (the pot), they switch in 14 different caps. The first of the 16 positions is a "short", to act as the tone pot on "zero", and the 16th position is open. What they refer to as "bypass". We'ld call it "no-load". The other 14 positions are the 14 caps.
Its not a bad idea, just overpriced. Also, I don't like when a company misrepresents a situation to make their product seem more valuable, or indespensible. For example, this quote from the "ToneStyler" page:
I don't think so. A simple cap change reduces only treble, leaving the midrange alone. Its why I run my tone controls with a .022uf cap.. . . the old style control reduces both treble and midrange together, leaving only the bass unchanged. No one likes that thin, undefined tone, so todays players leave their tone knobs on "10".
And . . . I think there's at least a couple of guitarists who use their tone controls.
I'm sure I can do better, for a lot less. But let me put my money where my mouth is before I condemn them completely.
