However, the Gear4music extended warranty scheme provides an enhanced service, and is designed to offer a higher level of protection than many 'free' warranties offered by some retailers and manufacturers.

The highlights of this enhanced warranty service are:

  • Warranty is extended to 5 years from the date of delivery.
  • Our Money Back guarantee is extended from 30 days to 90 days (terms apply after 30 days)
  • Collection and delivery costs are included for the first two years
  • Claim 50% cash back on the cost of the policy after 5 years if it has not been used!
  • Warranty is transferable if the item is re-sold
  • Loan or replacement equipment will be provided if the product isn't repaired within 30 days
  • If an item can not be repaired, a similar alternative product or cash discount (as defined in this policy) will be offered
  • The policy can be cancelled within 30 days, and at any time after that for a pro-rata discount

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.

For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

This enhanced warranty is in addition to the standard Gear4music and manufacturer warranty policies, and the Gear4music terms and conditions of trade. No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.

Seymour Duncan Active 3-Band Tone Circuit - STC-3M3

An Addition of Versatility

The STC-3M3 electronics consist of on board Tone Circuits which add amazing tonal versatility. It allows you to subtract EQ at centre frequencies voiced specifically for the electric bass. These circuits boast low noise, low distortion and high headroom and are useful for all musical styles and genres.

Three Bands of EQ and Slap Switch

There are three bands of active EQ, plus the proprietary Slap Switch. The lows are deep, clear, and tight and the mids range from ultra-smooth to punchy and all points in between. With the treble control, you can get a very wide, very usable response that's smooth without any brittleness. By Pulling up on the volume knob, the proprietary Slap Switch is engaged; this is a special EQ contour specially for slap-style playing.

Three Knobs to Control

This version consists of three knobs: volume/slap, mid-range, and stacked-concentric bass & treble. All to let you experiment and help customise your tone.
