ToneWoodAmp was designed to augment the natural sound of your guitar with effects, rather than to amplify volume. However, because TWA adds these effects to the natural sound, there is an increase in the volume level of an instrument. 

When dialed in correctly, ToneWoodAmp will add about 3-9dB volume, depending on your playing style.

You'll experience a greater boost in volume playing single note lines or fingerstyle as opposed to strumming chords, for example. 

In a live or noisy situation where additional volume is necessary, we recommend pairing your ToneWoodAmp with an amplifier or PA system. TWA will serve as a powerful DI/Preamp and multi-effect processor. This will allow for great flexibility in volume and tonal options for almost any live situation!
