Tone-Gard DecoGard for Mandolin
The Tone-Gard™ is designed to isolate the back of a mandolin or other stringed instrument from the player's body, producing more volume and enhancing the tone.
To test this concept without a Tone-Gard, you can do the following:
- Play your instrument normally, while facing a wall about a foot or two away, allowing the sound to bounce back directly so you can hear how your instrument projects.
- After you are used to the sound, hold your instrument by the neck so that the back of the instrument is a couple of inches away from your body. Now try playing some chop chords.
- Go back and forth, against and away from your body, and you will notice a difference. You will hear a difference just hitting one chop and letting it ring while holding against you, then away.
Another added benefit of the Tone-Gard is protecting the back of your instrument from wear, dings, and scratches.
