KIT T3PJ-Switch

T3PJ-Switch Wiring

Product Description

This KIT Version of our T3PJ-Switch gives you 21 Pure Analog pickup tones on any electric bass with "PJ" pickup configuration. This is a do-it-yourself project that includes everything you need to install this upgrade into your PJ-equipped electric bass instrument. Simple pickup rewiring is needed with this upgrade.

To Install This Upgrade

Simple pickup rewiring is needed with this upgrade. You will cut the wire that connects the two "P" coils and attach extra wire (supplied) using the included solderless terminal connectors. This separates the "P" pickup into two separate pickup coils. Use an ohmmeter to confirm that the wires connected to the pickups read continuity. Once rewiring is completed,

  1. You connect your pickup wires to the green solderless terminal strip
  2. You connect your output jack wires to the marked wires on this product
  3. You mount the upgrade and start exploring all the pickup tones now available to you.

How The T3PJ-Switch Works

The T3PJ-Switch contains five mini-toggle switches (from rear-to-front): (SW1, SW4, SW2, SW5, SW3)

These switches are used to control the Bridge ("J" / coil-1) pickup, and the Middle/Neck ("P" / coil-2 and coil-3) pickup coils.

SW1 is an ON-OFF-ON switch used to turn the Bridge "J" (Jazz Bass) pickup coil-1 Off and On. The middle position of this switch is Off. The Down position turns the pickup On (in normal-phase) and the Up position turns the pickup on (in reverse-phase).

SW4 is an ON-ON switch used to put the Bridge "J" and "P" pickup coils in either a Parallel connection or Series Connection. Down is Parallel, and Up is Series. When Down, the "J" pickup (coil-1) or the "P" pickup coils (coil-2 and coil-3) can be turned On either separately or together. When Up, both PJ pickup coils MUST be in an On position (see SW1 and SW2) or no sound will be produced.

SW2 is an ON-OFF-ON switch used to put the "P" pickup coils (coil-2 and coil-3) On. THe middle position of this switch is Off. The Down position turns the "P" pickup coils On. When Down, the "P" pickup coils can be further controlled by SW5 and SW3 using the rules described for these switches. The Up position is non-functional. (if SW4 is Up, this switch must be On)

SW5 is an ON-ON switch used to put the "p" pickup coils (i.e., coil-2 and coil-3) in Parallel connection or Series Connection. When Down, the two coils are in Parallel connection. When Up, the two coils are in Series connection.

SW3 is an ON-ON switch used to change the phasing of the "P" pickup coils (i.e., coil-2 and coil-3). Down puts the coils in normal-phase and Up position puts the pickup in reverse-phase.
