The J-RETRO 01 DELUXE is designed to fit directly into 'jazz' style
deluxe basses, without modification to the instrument in most cases. Its
high quality circuit uses three stacked and one single knob. Controls
and function include an active blend circuit, 3 band equaliser with
bass, variable frequency mid, treble plus bright function, and a passive
tone, which functions in both active and passive modes.
A very gentle built in contour gives immediate colour without
detracting from the basic sound of any bass. The active blend circuit
prevents the loss associated with many passive basses where, when both
pickups are up full, the signal from one pickup feeds into the other and
However, a switch is included to allow a passive equal mix of both
pickups. A second switch - basic "get-you-out-of-trouble" passive mode
is included in case the battery dies in crucial circumstances, and this
mode allows some useful settings too.
EASY TO FIT, NO ROUTING OR MODS TO MOST J DELUXE STYLE BASSES.
It can be used in more standard "jazz" style basses, but the jack
will need to be fitted to the side of the bass, as is the case with jazz
deluxe style basses.
