“Place an order, it is processed the next business day. Most likely same day if you don't place it at midnight local time. You can track the parcel online. And 6 days later the delivery guy is knocking on my front door. Unbelievable, you get high quality tools and equipment, California to Australia in 6 days. Amazing, LMI is the only place to buy..."

The ToneRite® is the world's most advanced and premier play-in device. Utilizing the same physics as you playing your instrument, the ToneRite® can significantly accelerate the play-in process and provide you with increased tone, playability and balance. The ToneRite® makes all of this available in a nearly silent, high quality, and portable manner.

The secret behind the ToneRite® is its ability to continually produce and efficiently transfer vibrational energy into an instrument, safely recreating and magnifying the physics that occur naturally while playing. This stimulation releases the natural tension in the materials and between the integrated components of the instrument, which in turn increases their ability to resonate together as a whole. Not only will your instrument sound better, but the notes themselves will come easier, allowing you to play with less fatigue.

This device will appeal to anyone who understands that new guitars need to be "played-in" before they sound their best –and are frustrated by how very long this process can take!

Despite the glowing reviews from violin people on the ToneRite® website, we were very skeptical about it when it was first presented to us. We decided to show our sample to a few local builders. They tried it out and were very pleased with the results. In 2009, the ToneRite® people exhibited at the Healdsburg Guitar Festival and sold out all of their stock to players and luthiers alike. We were impressed!

The model of ToneRite® carried by LMI works on both nylon and steel stringed acoustic guitars. The guitar model has been designed to fit safely and securely between the strings of a guitar and resting against the bridge.

An initial ToneRite® treatment of 72 hours is recommended and this will be the first step in achieving your instruments top potential. Subsequent treatments will be required to maintain and further develop your instrument. The ToneRite® 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.

Note: The Steel String model of the ToneRite fits most steel and nylon stringed instruments. If you have a nylon stringed guitar that has an end-to-end spacing above 55mm at the bridge we recommend using the nylon stringed model.

3-Year Full Warranty
Unlike most companies, ToneRite provides a FULL manufacturer's warranty. This means that the warranty:
• is transferable  • is provided at no cost  • provides a free replacement if the product needs to be repaired due to a manufacturing defect.
