If you have the need for 8 distinct guitar tones at the gig but only have space in your car or on stage for 1 guitar, then this is the device for you! The Tone Capture stores 7 emulated tones of your other guitars, which can be called up on the fly. Have a Strat but need a Tele sound? NO PROB. How about a Les Paul - YOU GOT IT. An acoustic guitar? YOU KNOW WE GOT YOU COVERED!
