Default How can I integrate a Baxandall Tone Control

I will make this preamp:
http://web.telecom.cz/macura/dispre_en.html

So my question is:
How can I integrate a Baxandall Tone Control in this circuit?

I think the best way to it, is to put the tone controls before the shown preamp circuit...... Maybe put a buffer in before the controls to minimize influence

I tought the same, but I asked the question because I wonder if there maybe is a trick to put in the tone controls in the existing circuit.

I wouldn't fool around with Macura's circuits and integrate things such as a tone control........
Macura's work are very fine stuff

It's better to have the controls in a separate circuit

Yes, it is very fine stuff. There is only one thing missing; Tone Control. I think it is better to integrate it than have a lot of separate circuits. That means shorter signal-path.

What are you talking about

You just need to put the tone control in the front of the preamp.... That won't result in a lot of circuits

However it's your choice

I just want the circuit simple to be as simple as possible.

It was not to on you

But keeping the tone control outside the preamp makes it much easier to mod and make changes to it later, and it's easier to fit a "Defeat" switch

Tone controls are evil.

Skip 'em.

I agree.... in one way. But sometimes when I play old records I miss the tonecontrols.
