Concentric Jazz Bass Control Plate was made by Fender for a very short period of time, 1960-1962 but has had a lasting effect with an almost mythical feel about it. In fact these Concentric Jazz Basses from 60-62 are now highly sought after by collectors and tone junkies.
Concentric controls for bass give you a wide range of tone options. Being able to contour the volume and tone of each pickup individually, offers an opportunity to sculpt your own tone to your discretion. Enabling you to really dial in the bass tone needed for the track or for defining your own sound.
Although initially designed in 1960, this is our modern take on a classic yet undervalued wiring control for the J-Bass. Using Alpha concentric pots, orange tone drops, a switch craft jack & Teflon insulated wire. All wired and soldered by hand in Tennessee, USA by bass players that understand the quest for tone.
A Tone Merchants pre-wired concentric control plate will add tonal dynamics that your current Vol, Vol, Tone controls does not offer. Our control plates are available in Standard and Heavy Relic finishes. So you can create both the tonal and aesthetic look you have in mind for your jazz bass.
We sent our Concentric Jazz Bass Control Plate to Andy Irvine from Andy’s World of Bass to try out. Check out his demo and review.
