Tone-Gard for Traditional Mandolin

Unleash the full tone of your mandolin with Tone-Gard. This nicely made accessory attaches to the back of your mandolin to isolate the back of the mandolin away from your body, allowing the sonic energy within the instrument to project more effectively, resulting in a much bigger sound and better frequency response.

Let your mandolin ring with Tone Gard
I have a Tone Gard on my Washburn M3SWK F body Mandolin. This is going to give your mandolin a wakeup that you will love. It is one of the upgrades that every mandolin should have. Let the mandolin ring by not muffling out the back against your belly. That is what Tone Gard does. I need one for my Martin guitar now that they are available. Yes Tone Gard works.

Must have for serious mandolin players
This is the cheapest way to upgrade your mandolin. There is a noticeable increase in volume and sustain. The only downside is the added weight but it isn't much. Review by Dan / (Posted on 2/21/2017)
