Tonewood Amps arrive at TNAG HQ

Ever since we first saw Tonewood Amps at this year's NAMM Show we have been itching to get them into our show and available to all our customers. For those of you who are new to Tonewood Amps, they are an exciting new way for acoustic guitar players to play with different effects (such as reverb, delay etc...) totally unplugged! The effects all emanate organically directly from the guitar's soundhole and body itself.

Mike Dawes demonstrates the ToneWoodAmp's reverb and delay effects in the videos below:



So how does it work? Well, similar to the way the strings excite the top of the guitar to produce sound, the 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. Very cool!

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.


“The ToneWoodAmp just makes me wanna play all day. Love the way it makes my guitar sound” - Andy McKee.

“I think it is the single best product add on for the acoustic guitar that I’ve ever encountered.
My favorite thing about it is that you can record with it and you don’t have to add any reverb that might affect the noise floor of the room you’re in. So all the small pops and squeaks–even an arm brushing the top of the guitar–that you hear on a natural acoustic recording aren’t affected. It’s a sound that hasn’t ever been heard before, truly.” - Kakki King

“I’ve been practicing a lot with this recently, it makes writing so much more immersive and fun. The most exciting acoustic guitar accessory since the capo. The ToneWoodAmp is genuinely my favourite guitar accessory ever.” - Mike Dawes


Acoustic Guitar: The Truly Acoustic, Acoustic Guitar ToneWoodAmp

The revolutionary ToneWoodAmp (TWA) is a combination acoustic effect generator, DI box, and IOS interface. It gives you the ability to play acoustically and to create effects—effects that up until now were only easily available through a pickup and an extensive collection of pedals.
