• We have drawn on our years of experience in the acoustic guitar amplification field to create a proprietary EQ system that can be fitted on much lower priced instruments and yet still offer a similar specification of performance to those systems fitted on our most expensive guitars without any compromise to the tonal expectations of the player.

    Our engineering brief was to design a model with LCD back lit stage tuning, three controllable EQ bands in contemporary recessed housings and the same active power source as found on units fitted to our most premium priced instruments.

    Newcomers to our Tanglewood family can be certain that we always choose to surprise our players with outstanding value, knowing this will build and maintain brand loyalty. The new TEQ system now follows this philosophy through into the onboard electronics category of our guitars... Trust Tanglewood!
