Golden Age Treble Bleed Circuit

About This Item

An easy mod for your volume control to get more uniform guitar tone from 1 to 10.

Hand-soldered here in our shop: a 150K-ohm 1/4-watt resistor (1% tolerance) in parallel with a .001uF capacitor. Wire this simple mod between the input and output lugs of your guitar volume control pot, to smooth out treble bleed. Get more uniform tone from 1 to 10, and a more rounded sound at low volume. Available with ceramic or Orange Drop® capacitor.

Hear the difference in TradeSecrets Issue 182.

Due to the small size of the resistor, we recommend using Alligator Clip Heat Sinks when soldering this circuit in place.

For modding original caps, see our 150K-ohm 1/4-watt Resistor.

Used this to treble bleed circuit to put in the master volume pot in my Gretsch White Falcon. It did a great job.

Installed it as replacement for single volume and tone on a recent purchase of a used BC rich Warlock


Making the difference

(Customer's Reviews)

Every electric guitar player should have this installed in their guitar. You will simply get pure real sound from 0 to 10.
