Experience the acoustic guitar in a whole new way!


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.


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.

Latest Testimonials

  • 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.

  • Hi guys,

    Firstly, I’ve been meaning to write to you since I first got my TWAmp, to express my sincere gratitude for creating such a wonderful, wonderful invention. I use it every single day and it continues to amaze me. I’m something of a tech gadget fanatic, and absolutely infatuated with things like smart phones and watches, tablets etc, but I have remarked to several people when singing the praises of the Tonewood Amp that “I love this thing more than my iPhone”. In a technology trend that can seem to be iterative, with improvements in speed but not much innovation, your invention really is the most original idea I’ve seen in a long time…

    Anyway, once again congratulations on your marvelous contribution to the world of music…my guitar playing will never be the same again.

  • I installed it today, and played guitar for 6 hours (I rarely play more than 30 minutes a day). I have never felt so inspired on my instrument. The sound is incredible.

  • So I got my tone wood amp last night and installed it on my Takamine EF341SC. After spending about an hour getting the settings just right and adjusting for each effect….I have to say, this things is awesome!! The key here is making your adjustments so that the effect is not overpowering but blends in naturally….once you hit that sweet spot the sound is amazing! I was part of the Kickstarter program and it was worth the wait!

  • I had been saving for 6 months to purchase a Plexi Drive Deluxe to add to my pedalboard. But after seeing Mike and Larry’s videos I just had to put the pedal on hold. This is a must have for acoustic guitar! I received mine on Jan. 14. I purchased an extra X-Brace so I could use on my 6 & 12 string. Thanks to all at Tone Wood Amp!
