The Folding Guitar Amplifier Speaker Beaming Solution that solves problems when performing on stage. After you spend 30 seconds setting up Tone Shield, your amp will sound warmer, more velvety and the sound engineer will stop asking you to turn down. The shield is made from tough 6mm cast Polycarbonate, which we machine to accept acrylic hinges. We also machine the hinges to fit 3mm brass screws. You might be able to wear out the hinges if you bend them more than a million times! The shied panels are incredibly durable, but if it happens to fall victim to a Pete Townsend performance moment, you can easily replace any panel in minutes.
I keep my Tone Shield in the back of my amp - as shown in one of the photos - that's my amp! Cameron Owen does this as well, but I've also seen him rummage through a cable/accessory box to get it out! Johnny Hiland puts it in the back of his Fat Jimmy 1 x 12 Cabinet.
The Tone Shield base is made from wood and we paint it flat black, add four rubber feet and an elastic cord for shield stowing. It takes only seconds to setup and fold up. Please keep in mind that wood is a natural product and that while we do our best to produce a consistent product, there will be variations inherent to wood.

I fully expected the diffusion effect that really helps on stage, but I did not expect the improvement in tone. This is a great product.
The quality and fit and finish was very good (shipping time was also short). I and my other guitar player have not used the shield in a gig yet, but we will. The shield physically worked during our band practice session and I'd recommend this product.
Excellent Investment for Gigs
The toneshield has functioned better than any other solution I've tried in order to hear myself better on gigs. I used beam blockers, angled cabs, and stands, but none were able to get the articulation of my sound up to my ears while retaining the overall character of the amp and reducing the beaming effect. I highly recommend it if you play on small stages with other musicians and want to hear yourself clearly without drowning everyone else out.
Really impressed with this product. I've tried everything from duct tape, clearsonic baffles, low watt amps, and facing my cab away from front of house. This works the best and even my band mates notice a difference. They can hear me better, I can hear me better, and the people in crowd in front are not getting that annoying beam of sound blasting their eardrums. I just wish they made something to reach higher speakers as i primarily play through a vertical 2x12. Awesome product and i highly recommend it.
Hi Gregory, I have made custom bases for special circumstances and will gladly take a look at your vertical 2 x 12 situation. Send me a photo of your cabinet and I'll let you know what can be done. Thanks! Mark
Great product !! ToneShield allows me to hear myself better and as a hearing impaired person the ToneShield is a God send. I can keep my Fender Blues Junior stage volume down because the sound is directed right at me and not affect the overall House volume in Church. Great customer service, Mark is great to work with and stands behind the product!!
