Stereo Hybrid Tone Control

Stereo Hybrid Tone Control Circuit
Stereo Hybrid Tone Control is made by Barlex Respectaizer, a fairly simple tone control circuit using several NPN transistors and also a dual opamp IC for the final amplifier, you can make this Hybrid Tone Control circuit yourself because the schematic and PCB can be downloaded for free at the end of the posting. Here's the circuit diagram of its tone control:

Stereo Hybrid Tone Control Circuit diagram
The stereo Hybrid tone control scheme, using a combination of 2N5551 and 2N222 transistors. For initial gain and then go into bass and treble settings, bass treble settings use a stereo potentiometer. then the signal is amplified and amplified by the U1 IC Dual Op-Amp buffer circuit, you can use equivalent dual op-amp ICs for example JRC4558, TL082. TL072, NE5532, AD823. OPA2134 etc. This tone control is low distortion, clarity sound, good separation, good bass attack.
The circuit Tested (See Youtube Video) with symmetrical supply, the maximum voltage rating is the 12v-0-12v  transformer. Use a minimum 500mA Stepdown transformer.
