ID: 201TB-1 Pro Treble Bleed Upgrade

This upgrade is designed to add treble bleed to all your electric guitar and bass upgrade projects.

A Better Way To Get Treble Bleed

Thank you for looking at our incredible upgrades for your electric guitar and bass.

What Is Treble Bleed?

When the volume control on your guitar or bass is turned up to 10, your tone isn't the same as when you roll the volume back to 5 or less. When you rotate your electric guitar or bass volume control counterclockwise towards zero, you lose both volume and high end brilliance. This means your treble becomes muddier and bassier. This is a common problem. The good news is that you can easily fix it using our Treble Bleed Upgrades.

How Our Treble Bleed Upgrades Work

These Innovative Professional Treble Bleed Upgrades will eliminate the problem of muddy tones when your volume control is rolled back. These upgrades will give you that distinctive "American Professional" sound from your Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jazz Bass and other instruments.

Our Professional Treble Bleed Upgrades come in two EZ-Install versions:
One is optimized for single-coil pickups and the other is for humbucker pickups.
These superbly designed upgrades correct the problem of high frequency losses at reduced volume levels.

Our TB-1 Pro Treble Bleed Upgrade is designed for ALL electric guitar and bass instruments with standard or hot single-coil pickups, P90 pickups and low output humbucker pickups. This upgrade version has a capacitor and also uses one resistor in parallel and one resistor in series to fix this problem. It lets the highs "bleed" through the volume control even as it is turned down to let a fuller tone pass through at all volume levels. A small amount of ALL frequencies bypass the volume pot along with the high frequencies that bleed through the capacitor. Because we use Fender specifications, we are the only ones that offer you True Fender "American Professional" treble bleed performance for your single-coil pickups.

With your volume at 10, our Treble Bleed upgrades are electrically "invisible" and do not affect your sounds.

Treble Bleed circuits are included on the American Professional Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar and Jazzmaster instruments with single-coil pickups. Your non-American Professional instruments can benefit from this upgrade.

Our TB-1 Pro Treble Bleed Upgrade Features:

Comes with simple instructions. To install this upgrade, you need a low heat soldering iron and rosin core solder.

How to install your Pro Treble Bleed upgrade.

  1. Remove the backing from the adhesive tape under your Treble Bleed circuit board. Move the three slots of the circuit board as close as possible to the volume control terminals to make physical contact, then gently press the circuit board down on the back of the volume control. The adhesive tape will hold it in place.
  2. Flow solder on all three volume control terminals and your Treble Bleed circuit board slots. Just "tack" the connections and avoid excessive solder.

Now you can enjoy superior performance from your electric guitar or bass with this upgrade.
