Area59' 500K Treble Bleed
We are proudly introduce the Area59' Treble Bleed (exclusive build for us by D.Whittmore of LUXE USA)
There are a lot of different opinions about the use of a ‘treble-bleed’ on the volume control of an electric guitar. Many customer complains that the sound/tone will to be too thin when they turn the Volume down. The simplest solution would be to solder a capacitor parallel over the two available connectors of the volume control. When adjusting down, the highs remain present but not the lows. (Similar to a bright-cap in the amplifier.) The value of which of course depends upon the features of the pickups and the amp.
We offer 2 different Treble Bleeds 250K for Singlecoils and 500K for Humbuckers/P90s Incl. a Ltd. Edt. Bloodpack Edition.
Compare to other Treble Bleeds our Bleeds are made of a real wax/oil paper and foil cap with a carbon resistor in series! As you know Pio caps sounds much more organic and warmer compare to Std. aftermarket Ceramic cap, this is the reason we use a real handmade PIO Cap in our Bleeds! After checking different values we can to the final that the 250K one sounds best with a .0001mf Cap and a 160k 1/2 watt resistor, the 500K ones is a .0,0015mf with the same 160k 1/2 watt resistor. We have the feel that the Wax and paper gives the Bleed a much more organic tone...
