Guitar World's
Gold Award Winner

"The ToneConcepts Distillery is truly different,
from the way that it virtually becomes an
integrated part of an amp to the incredible
variety of natural-sounding tones it delivers."
Guitar World, February 2014

Nels Cline

“Strong Tones! Excellent Sustain! The sounds achievable are great! “Guts” is killer! It really IS like an amp in a box that produces a lot of varied and appealing tones and that it has OOMPH, too. I’m seriously excited about the thing!”

Alex Skolnick

“It makes the whole rig sound better. It’s like moving to
heavier strings, the sound becomes fuller and more
responsive. And the built in overdrive is very tasteful.
The Distillery is perfect for rock, metal, blues or any
other tone with a high gain.”

Vince Gill

“Great tone starts in the hands and
with a great guitar and amp. As
guitarists, we search our whole
lives for something to make things
sound better. The Distillery enhances
my sound while still allowing the true
character of my guitar to shine."

Steve Lukather

“Love it!  The sound is killer!
It makes my amps sound even better!”

Los Lobos

David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas & Louie Perez play The Distillery

Dweezil Zappa

“I like to think of The Distillery as having volume knobs for the feel and character of sound. As the name suggests, The Distillery will help extract the purest fundamental elements of your guitar and amp tone and allow you to musically enhance them.”

Kenny Wayne Shepherd &
Robert Randolph

Jim Campilongo

“The Distillery makes my amp sound
like it was on legal steroids!
Thank you ToneConcepts,
you’ve done it again!”
