Customer Testimonials

“I am pretty critical of gadgets for acoustic guitar. I bought Annalisa’s acoustic panel it was incredibly disappointed. I bought the Fishman aura pedal and it was pretty amazing at modeling other acoustic guitars through digital sampling of them in specific microphones. I also have a TC helicon acoustic play unit for acoustic guitar and vocals. It is pretty amazing too. Although NOTHING I have bought really compares to the ToneWood Amp. ONE HELLUVA lotta fun for something you can take anywhere with your acoustic electric guitar and play with full effects. It does exactly what they say it does. Using a couple of midi apps on my iPhone I can even have strings playing along with me as I sit out on the patio. That to me is absolutely astounding. Before I was only able to achieve that with Godin XTSA (or an electric guitar with a GK-3 pickup) and a Roland GR20 or GR55 pedal and an amp. This is truly a no bullshit piece of gear. You can believe every video that they have put out with the different artists playing with it. Here it is with Midi recorded straight out of the sound hole using my iPhone. No amps no fancy microphone.”

“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.”

“I just wanted to let you know I recorded this tribute to Prince yesterday using my new ToneWoodAmp.
I recorded it with only my iPhone. In the past, I would have had to record the audio with my zoom recorder, mix it in logic to add reverb, and re-sync it to the video.
To be able to just sit down and play something into my phone and post it immediately is a game changer for me.”

“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.”

Tonewood The best thing to ever happen to your acoustic guitar!
This is what the Tonewood amp sounds like! Its a small battery powered phone size box that sticks to the back of your guitar with magnets and vibrates the wood of the guitar for a natural reverb and sustain that you wont believe! I have never wanted to play my guitar more since I stuck this thing on! Thank you

Received mine today, and installed on my Martin OM28E. WOW!! The so-called ‘hype' is no longer hype. It is TRUTH.
I have hardly put my guitar down since I installed it 4 hours ago, and I will probably play another 4 hours. No single device – amp, effects box, etc. – has had the impact on my playing and improvising as the Tonewood Amp.
This device is a game changer.

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.

Yes I've been playing and singing since the Stone Age ,now 76 and have played all type of guitars, acoustic, electronic, midi , but this gizmo is something new. I perform all over the place and I think folks are going to be vary impressed.


I just received my tonewood amp and honestly almost cried after hearing it for the first time. What an amazing experience! Thank you for changing the acoustic game entirely! Words can not express how helpful this is to my creative process. I installed it on one of my acoustics but realized quickly how bad i want to hear it on all of my acoustics. Please sell me more X-braces!!!!!

Brandon Marek

Just put mine in last night. Still can't believe an acoustic guitar can sound like that without a separate amplifier. Haven't even tried all of the rest of the settings. Amazing.

Thanks Helene!
Really enjoying my Twarp. It messes up everyones head. I'm really looking forward to using it onstage @ Merlefest,,,
sounds fantastic with my Fishman Preamp over my PA. After getting some understanding about editing parameters to
a given environment, my main issue & goal is learning how to store or save settings, & then being able to call them up.
Overall, it's way more than I anticipated. So Very Cool. And So Much Fun !!

I have already purchased and received my Tonewood Amp. Thank you! It is everything I thought it would be! However, I did not have an iDevice at the time I purchased so I didn't order an iDevice adapter with my TWAMP. Now my son has given me one he no longer uses and I would like to order the adapter but your web page says it can only be ordered with a new TWAMP. Is there any way I can order just the cable, either through you or another provider? And by the way…my fingers are SORE from playing with my TWAMP all day. I love it and I can almost guarantee that you will get future sales from people I demonstrate it to.
