These have been hard to get, but I've got 'em. And these things work. I've had the great pleasure of selling bunches of these, most recently to (I'm not above name-dropping) Emmylou Harris. Peter Frampton is a fan. Union Station is gigging with them. John Jorgenson is using these both onstage and in the studio, as well, to re-amp the guitar channel from lots of recorded live performances where his piezo sound was otherwise unacceptable. They are truly astonishing.

How about you? Are you tired of all the quacking, honking, squealing and other barnyard noises that come out of your pickup? Is that what's got you down, buddy? From the AudioSprockets website:

ToneDexter restores the rich body tone of your acoustic instrument to the pickup 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 they call a WaveMap. Think of it as charting a course from point A to point B.

When you first get your ToneDexter, you do a one-time training session with both a mic and the pickup plugged into ToneDexter. This way, ToneDexter can listen to both signals simultaneously and learn the difference between the two.  By playing for about a minute, ToneDexter figures out how to simultaneously correct for the pickup’s deficiencies and  restore the missing body tone to the pickup signal, and creates the WaveMap. With a simple press of a button, ToneDexter stores that WaveMap in one of the eleven available preset locations. You can then put the microphone away and enjoy beautiful, lifelike sounds from your guitar, violin, mandolin, or other acoustic instrument.
