I've had the tone wood amp for a few weeks now. thought I'd revisit with my over all impression.
I love it!
As a guy who does enjoy using an acoustic amp while I noodle around at home, the ToneWood Amp is almost like it was made for me.
The reverb effects are pretty lush sounding, and these are my favorite effects. (Hall, Room and Plate). There is a Delay effect which includes a reverb setting and that is nice too. I don't find that I have much use for the other effects (trem/delay and over drive/delay)
Real is easy to tweak settings , load / save presets. You can have as much or as little of the effect coming through as you want.
Each effects allows 10 save settings and you can have 5 different Guitar slots. (each one with it's own master gain and filter settings that work with each guitar. since every pickup system is different, this is really a plus
Initially I set up my 1978 Yari DY74, but I've since added an additional XBRACEs to my 2 Taylors (Grand Symphony and 514NY) It takes about 10 minutes to install the XBRACE correctly, and once installed you don't even know it's in there. And the brace stays put once installed.
I took it over to show my brother in-law, a few days after I took delivery, like BK said,, the look on his face was priceless. "wait !! ... Whaaaaat !! Holy Crap.. That is awesome" he ordered one the next day. "Gotta have one..."
one of the coolest things is if you play while facing a wall, as sound bounces back to you off the wall, it's very much like a surround sound kind of effect. It's crazy.
I will definitely add the XBRACE to my J200 When we go away for long weekends vacations, this is a "must pack" item. (I always bring a guitar,, playing every day is not optional for me.)
