The ToneWoodAmp team is clearly doing their job: I knew about this device prior to arriving at NAMM 2020. In fact, I had researched it enough to want to seek it out and demo it at the show. I’m glad I did.
I had a chance to talk to Dave Arnold of ToneWoodAmp, a young company based in Phoenix, Arizona. In short, the ToneWoodAmp attaches to the back of your acoustic guitar, and it gifts your instrument’s natural sound with built-in effects. The effects don’t require an external amplifier to be heard: they ring right through the guitar’s sound hole, blending seamlessly with the guitar’s natural sound.
