Sounds great but the knobs are garbage
Michael9841, 29.01.2018
Easy to install and very flexible. It sounds excellent - even at extreme settings the bass still sounds musical. However, the knobs that came with it are junk: none of the hex set screws would turn properly (using the supplied allen wrench) making them worthless. The worst culprit is the concentric knob for the control itself: neither of the set screws would budge! They also look pretty cheap (cheap black plastic). I ended up throwing them all out and replacing them with good knobs.

Great sound, flimsy knobs
doc40hz, 28.07.2019
This is a very quiet active circuit that sounds great. My only gripe is that the plastic knobs it came with are trash and need replaced - its hard to move the treble pot independently of the bass pot.

Super easy to install.

EMG-Qualität!!! ...und geht auch für Gitarre!
J. R., 26.11.2017
EMG polarisiert! Die einen lieben, die anderen hassen die Marke. ...und ich werde da jetzt keine religiöse Schlammschlacht anfeuern!
Ich verwende die BTC seit einem viertel Jahrhundert in einer E-Gitarre, mal mit passiven Pickups, mal mit EMG SAs. Und es hat immer super funktioniert. Ich habe die Elektronik jetzt wieder gekauft, weil sie deutlich kompakter geworden ist: Doppelpoti und darauf montierte Miniplatine, das passt in so gut wie jedes E-Fach! Bei der Tele wird es ein wenig eng, aber wer nicht gerade zwei linke Pranken hat, wird sich zu helfen wissen!
Was mir bei EMG seit einiger Zeit sehr gefällt, ist der Lieferumfang! Kabelsatz, Klinkenbuchse, Potiknöpfe in zwei Varianten, Imbusschlüssel und bei Pickups sind immer passende Potis dabei, das allein ist ein echtes Argument für EMG! Und die Qualität aller Parts geht voll in Ordnung!
Zu den Audio-Eigenschaften:
Wie schon erwähnt, ist die BTC bei mir in einer E-Gitarre. Hierfür setzt der Bassregler eigentlich zu tief an, ich verwende ihn aber nur zum Absenken der Tiefen, denn ein paar Drive-Pedale in meinem Setup geben schon zu viel Bass raus. Den Halspickup kann ich dann mit dem Bass-Cut wieder gut in die Spur bringen!
4 einstellbare Treble-Bereiche (2x Glocke, 2x Kuhschwanz), da sollten eigentlich alle glücklich werden können! Ich überlege schon lang, ob ich die Platinenschalter nicht aufs Bedienfeld meiner Gitarre legen soll, denn alle Möglichkeiten ergeben vernünftige Sounds!
Nebengeräusche: da kann ich echt entwarnen! Zwar erhöht sich das Rauschen bei vollen Treble-Boosts, aber es ist wirklich vertretbar und ich könnte kein Distortion-Pedal verwenden wenn es anders wäre!
Ein Tip meinerseits: weil mir die neue BTC einen Potiplatz frei gemacht hat, habe ich nur zum Testen eine passive Höhenblende (25kOhm, 0,1 mF) eingebaut und bin begeistert! In Kombination mit Treble-Boost kommt ein transparenter, am oberen Ende dezent abgerundeter und in den hohen Mitten betonter Klang raus, der sich clean und verzerrt für alles eignet, genial!

Fazit: ich schreibe hier also für die Gitarrenfraktion und für die kann ich eine echte Empfehlung abgeben! Probiert die BTC ruhig mal aus! Und wer denn Umbau der Gitarre scheut, kann ja erst einmal einen externen Versuch wagen: einfach in eine Blechdose einbauen und wie ein Effektpedal verwenden!!

Le préamp le plus sous-côté
PA Krauzer, 11.05.2020
Ce préamp est tellement clair, il à apporte ce qu'il faut au son sans jamais dénaturer la couleur de votre basse. Je l'ai installé sur plusieurs basse et il fait toujours le même job. Il est top, acheter sans vous poser de question.
De plus le réglage des fréquences aigus en mode notch ou en passe bas est une fonctionnalité dont vous ne pourrez plus vous passez une fois que vous l'aurez comprise
