Our Students' Results

Josh Hissem

"I was a drummer and never really understood how an amp worked. I had no idea that you could use different amps and cabs to impact your sounds. Joey shows you how to get the sounds and tones you're looking for in your recordings. I've gone from using presets to actually dialing in tones and getting the sounds I'm hearing in my head. I've been a musician for 30 years, and Toneforge Bootcamp is the greatest thing I've ever invested in."

Dallas Allred

"My favorite part about it has to be how you explain the inner workings of some of the different Toneforge sims. It really helped to make dialing in a tone much quicker. I also like how you go beyond building the tone and explain what exactly makes a good tone to the point I feel confident making good tones with real hardware and other sims."
