ToneWoodAmp Solo Acoustic Guitar Effect Amplifier

Ensure out-of-this-world acoustic effects anywhere with the ToneWoodAmp Solo. This device excites the acoustic's back to project effects through the body.
The ToneWoodAmp allows you to play acoustic guitar with different effects, UNPLUGGED with the effects emanating organically from the guitar's sound hole and the body itself.

How Does the ToneWoodAmp Work?

Similar to the way the strings excite the top of the guitar to produce sound, ToneWoodAmp excites the back of the instrument, producing sound waves of effects such as reverb, echo, delay, tremolo and more, which interact with the natural sound of the guitar itself.

The ToneWoodAmp is also a multi-effect processor which you can connect with any Amp/PA system and is also an iDevice interface allowing you to experiment with audio and MIDI apps.

I bought this for my PRS p20e parlor acoustic with no awareness of a market for acoustic effects. In a nutshell: it’s ok when it works. The install is VERY specific on the placement of the magnet inside the soundhole; I didn’t have much clearance inside my guitar and once the adhesive touches, it’s on get one extra set of adhesives in case you set it in the wrong spot, so be careful. My biggest compliment: the reverbs are fantastic, especially the plate. My biggest complaint: the delay and OD are dog water, plus the unit clips constantly so strumming hard onto a parlor = bad clipping. It looks cool, easy to play once it’s installed correctly, it eats batteries very quickly, and ultimately I’m left debating whether to keep it or not.
I wanted to state that if this looks like a novel unit, it still is currently. LAG Guitars make an incredible acoustic with onboard effects at a 1k price point and I believe Yamaha is doing the same thing. For $250 this isn’t bad per se, there just isn’t much competition. In relation to these onboard effects of smart guitars, the Tonewood Amp doesn’t have much to offer.
