Telecaster Triple Tone Control Summary:

“The tone pot works great and gives me that little edge!”

Expand your Telecasters tone control potential!
 
The downside of the standard Telecaster / Tele single tone control potentiometer is that it does not allow the two guitar pickups to be controlled independently, or provide a true ‘no load’ position. Based on a custom specification potentiometer, and suitable for use with the Ironstone, or any other Telecaster two pickup system, this Telecaster Triple Tone Control kit comprises a custom potentiometer, capacitor and resistor.
 
And its very easy to install, requiring just some basic soldering skill. The Sprague 33nF orange drop capacitor and one connecting wire have been pre-soldered into place for you. These little wonders will provide both a very smooth tone change across the sweeps and give you three completely different tone ‘zones’ to explore. You can dial in any ‘normal’ level of treble cut to both pickups, instantly switch between a full ‘no-load’ Neck and a muted bridge, or wind both pickups up to full no load splendour!

Thats the versatility of the Telecaster Triple Tone Control.

Description

Ironstone Telecaster Triple Tone

 
The downside of the standard Telecaster / Tele single tone control potentiometer is that it does not allow the two guitar pickups to be controlled independently, or provide a true ‘no load’ position. The Ironstone Telecaster Triple Tone Control is based on a custom specification potentiometer, and suitable for use with the Ironstone, or any other Telecaster two pickup system.

The potentiometer itself has a centre detent / click for precise control of its position in use which is as follows;

1) Fully clockwise, both pickups are at maximum treble cut like a conventional Tele tone control. As the control knob (not supplied) is turned clockwise, the treble cut on both pickups is smoothly reduced, again as a normal Telecaster tone control (the same is true if the middle ‘both pickups’ 3 way switch position is selected).

2) At the centre detent / click, the tone control function is completely disconnected from both pickups i.e. a ‘no-load’ condition to let the Bridge and Neck deliver their unrestricted tonal output.

3) Turning the tone knob from the centre clockwise, the Neck pickup remains in ‘no-load’ condition, while the Bridge pickup has progressively more treble cut (i.e. the Bridge pickup is now being controlled relative to the Neck). At fully clockwise (Neck pickup still no-load), the Bridge pickup has full treble cut, a little deeper than the fully anti-clockwise position.

>>>>>>>>>>>>> That’s Telecaster Triple Tone! <<<<<<<<<<<<<<

(Note; in the second half of the tone potentiometer sweep, engaging both pickups with the 3 way switch will apply the selected treble cut to both pickups.)
