Full Active Electronics Systems
Overview: Due to dimensional constraints,
full active is only
available in Bich models.
||Rhythm Pickup Volume
||Pre-amp #1 Volume

||Pre-amp #2 Volume
||Pre-amp #2 On/Off
||Six Position Varitone
||Dual Sound Rhythm Pickup
||Dual Sound Lead Pickup
When all switches are off the guitar is in passive
mode. At this time both pickups are controlled by the master volume.
Both pick-ups are activated by pick up selector switch #2. The
tonalities of both pickups in passive mode are controlled by pot #8
Click on switch #3a (preamp On/Off) and get an
instant 10 db boost from the gate. At this point the pick-ups are
now controlled by the pick-up volume control #3 while the master
tone #8 still controls the tonality of both pick-ups.
With both pick-ups on, phase switch #5 in the up
position will produce an out of phase sound, (a tone resembling a
half cocked wah sound).
To coil tap the lead pickup flick upward dual
sound switch #7. This converts the pick-up into a single coil sound
by separating the pick-up into one coil. Dual sound switch #6
performs the same task for the rhythm pick-up.
As you rotate the six-position varitone #4
clockwise, each position produces a distinct sound based on
whichever capacitor is in operation. You will also notice a slight
decrease in gain but the pre amp volume can compensate the drop and
then some. It is only as limited as your imagination.
All these switches can be use to your liking &
when you find a particular sound you like, make note of the setting
for future reference. The B.C. Rich Active Electronics produces a
spectrum of 154 distinct sounds. If you really want to get really
funky with all switches on as described rotate master tone #8
counter clockwise. If you are a traditional blues player you will
find sounds you never knew existed.
Note that all pickups function while in passive as
well as active mode. The battery can easily be changed by carefully
removing the screws for the control cavity plate.
The main difference between the active and full
active electronics system is that the full electronics system has
two independent preamps as well as two volume switches which can
work in unison or individually and can naturally distort the volume
even at low settings.
The B.C. Rich Active and Full Active systems offer
more sounds than any other onboard electronics.
Not everyone likes all those switches & gizmos, In fact every single real pro we
have built for prefers a minimalist approach to the electronics.
When you are on stage and under pressure, the last thing you want to deal with
is a complex array of switches.
No sensible player wants to try and commit to memory the desired tone.
This very simple system above was done in Ed Roman's custom shop for a working
He obviously did not want to deal with all of minor variations of tone.
This Custom Designed System will deliver 95% of the tone that the original
complicated system offers.
