Well boil my granny's old truss

Just checked the .PDF, and there's a plot of the Impedance & Freqs, but there's no data. Its just some peak lines on a graph. It relates to sod all.

How clever is that ? I want one

Gawd lumme... ummm, looks like it just progressively rolls off the treble to me? Can't see how much use it would be on a bass, and looks bloody huge as well.

Listen, I don't care what it does, I've just got to have it 'cos it's made in Liechtenstein (well, that was where 'The last significant manufacturing process was carried out'...).

You're right about what it does, but it's not too bad in size really - just a biut of a lump on their normal right angle jacks. As has been said, bloody useless for bass.

The normal silent jacks are excellent, though.

I can already adjust tone on my bass, my pedals, my amp head, and my speaker cab. Not sure I need another place to tweak tone?
