We have now released the all-new 3rd generation ToneRiteŽ for Double Bass! These 3rd generation models are hot off the press and represent the newest and most advanced ToneRiteŽ yet. Some of the improvements of the 3rd generation are provided below.
The Double Bass ToneRiteŽ was initially developed as a custom product for a professional musician. After we finished the development, both luthiers and professional musicians who tested this version of the ToneRiteŽ urged us to make it available to the public. Every aspect of the ToneRiteŽ has been meticulously crafted and designed to ensure optimal performance and safety. The ToneRiteŽ fits over the bridge of a double bass and transfers energy into the body via the same physics as when it is being bowed.
The ToneRiteŽ works by relieving the inherent tensions in wooden acoustic instruments. A new or even moderately played instrument has a tendency to have a lot of individual components that resonate independently. By transferring certain energies to an instrument, the ToneRiteŽ will help the instrument to resonate as a whole. As a result, your instrument becomes incredibly responsive, problem notes improve, less bow pressure is required, the sound comes more quickly with less effort, and the overall quality of tone increases.
An initial ToneRiteŽ treatment of 72 hours is recommended. It will be the first step in achieving your instrument's top potential. Subsequent treatments will be required to maintain and further develop your instrument. The ToneRiteŽ is not designed to make a poor instrument great, it is simply designed to bring out the best in an instrument. Your instrument will retain its individual character, with enhanced balanced tone and playability.
