Audio Sprockets ToneDexter Acoustic Instrument PreAmp Pedal

$399
sku: TONEDEXTER
ToneDexter restores the natural, rich body tone of your acoustic instrument to the pickup. It does this using proprietary digital signal processing technology combined with a pristine analog signal path. Audio Sprockets has created a way to learn the difference between the sound coming from the pickup, and the sound coming from a microphone, placed in front of the instrument, and use that information to create a transformation called a WaveMap. Once you have stored your mic sound into ToneDexter, simply plug in your instrument and play. ToneDexter works with guitar, violin, mandolin, dobro, banjo, upright bass, and most other acoustic stringed instruments. Used by Molly Tuttle and many other prominent acoustic musicians.   More Details...
