The DJ-RETRO 01 is designed to fit directly into the Lakland Daryl Jones Signature bass without modification, including a PP3 battery. Its high quality circuit uses three stacked knobs and includes an active blend circuit plus a 3 band equaliser with bass, variable frequency mid, treble and bright function.
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 vice versa.
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, but this mode allows lots of useful settings too.
LAKLAND SUPPLY OUR DJ PLATES TO ENSURE A GOOD MATCH WITH DJ BASSES.
No routing or physical modifictaions to the majority of Lakland DJ basses.
We’ve found that variations in fit may sometimes require minor adjustment to the control caviity in order to make a little clearance for the mini toggle by the jack.
A STANDARD PP3 BATTERY FITS UNDER THE PLATE IN THE STANDARD CAVITY IN MOST CASES.
HARDWARE OPTIONS: Chrome Plate, Black/Chrome Knobs (Other knob finishes can be supplied by special request)
