The treble bleed mod is a circuit which can help you keep the treble in the guitar signal when youre turning down the volume potentiometer probably you know that when the volume pot knob is turned a little bit down the guitar signal is quieter and also darker or smoother its loosing some high frequencies. Understanding the treble bleed mod a common problem you may have noticed is that as you rotate your guitars volume pot counterclockwise towards zero an unwanted side effect is that you lose high end along with the volume the solution commonly used to remedy this situation is to employ a treble bleed mod aka volume kit if your main goal . This guitar wiring modification shows how to use a small value capacitor and high value resistor typically 500k to 15meg ohms to add a tuned treble bleed or high frequency bypass feature this mod will help retain the high frequencies that are lost when the volume setting is reduced in this version of the mod a resistor is added in . That more bass means more treble is lost to the ground it just said modern wiring can cause treble loss and in 50s wiring the typical treble loss that occurs when rolling back the volume is greatly reduced but here why does 50s wiring bleed more treble when tone pot is almost closed 5. One little mod a new world of tone if we weigh the negligible cost and effort of installing a treble bleed against the potentially prodigious payoff a volume pot capacitor looks to be a very smart investment indeed particularly for tube amp aficionados again this little mod works best with single coil pickups so heads up strat and tele
