Treble By-Pass Filter Kit For Single Coil Pickups - Type II

This is the same treble by-pass filter circuit or Tone Saver Fender® is installing in their 2017 American Professional SSS Strat under part #770-6416-049. Ours are made with high-quality individual components as opposed to Fender's encapsulated version. This filter kit is also referred to as a "treble bleed circuit". Our filter kit is about $20 less than Fender's...

The treble by-pass filter helps maintain the high end treble response in your tone when you turn down the volume control.  Typically you will roll down your volume on the guitar to reduce gain and with this filter installed your tone will retain its treble no matter where the volume is set.  No longer does your tone have to get muddy when you roll down the volume.

For our kit's components we have selected Vishay ceramic disc capacitors and Xicon resistors.

Our kits are already pre-assembled with each of the three components and is ready for you to solder this treble by-pass filter to the center and outside lug of your guitar's volume potentiometer, see illustration below for details.

Due to the small size of the components in this kit, it is recommended to use heat sink alligator clips to help dissipate heat from the soldering iron to prevent damage to the components.

We shrink tubing insulate the two hookup leads insulating the 20K resistor on the one lead and equally shrink tubing insulate down the other lead to the point where both leads get connected to the volume potentiometer, this will prevent unwanted contact with other components creating a short circuit.

All 3 components in this filter kit are pre-soldered together and the connection leads are partially shrink tubing insulated. If you do not wish for us to pre-assemble this filter kit simply ask us for the bare components, pricing is the same.

Price: $15.00 Per Each Kit


NOTE: Installation instructions are not included additionally with this kit. All instructions are provided on this item page, see illustration / instructions to the right for how to orientate / install this filter kit correctly.
