Open box return. Regular price $399. Sold as-is.
Picture, if you will, an electronic device that can tell the difference between how your guitar sounds through a microphone, and how it sounds through the pickup you've been using all along. It records this difference in a WaveMap. This device can then reverse the difference when you're only using the pickup, and produce a sound that is remarkably like the mic sound you just taught it. The process only takes a couple of minutes, and it can be repeated indefinitely, so you can dial in your tone, maybe add different WaveMaps for different instruments.
If you've followed this technology for the last 15 years or so, you've seen lots of folks try to get this right: DTAR Mama Bear. Fishman Aura. And yet there's a reason every band here in Durango is clamoring to outfit every single one of their acoustic players with one of these: The ToneDexter really is all it's cracked up to be. Check it out.
