Schatten Thumbwheel Controls


500k thumbwheel controls


     Our new T-2 thumbwheel controls are small, circuit board mounted units that can be used as a volume and tone control or as two volume controls. T-2's are also designed to easily be split into two single thumbwheel units should you want to use single thumbwheels for any purpose.

    T-2's come complete with 24 inches of 5 conductor shielded mini cable and a 0.047mfd capacitor. All control units can mount to the underside of a sound hole lip on an acoustic or classical or to the underside of a floating pickguard with the supplied 3M VHB foam tape.

     T-2 thumbwheel controls are the same ones we use with our Artist II and Player endpin jack preamps. They will work properly with all magnetic pickups as well.
