    anybody seen it before?

    Any comments?

    Maybe some skilled simulator can compare its 0-10 settings with the standard tone control found everywhere.

    I can not read resistor value from pictures, waiting for my friend to answer, but maybe itīs a "known circuit".
    Thanks.

    It looks like a modified 'grease bucket' circuit.

    Yup. I'd concur with that.
