Actually to me this sounds like snake oil. from a scientific point of view, it is impossible to test the stuff to see if it actually works. there are too many variables, the main one is that no two instruments are alike. second how is "tone condition" measured?  since there can't be a baseline study to compare it with there is no way of determining if there is an "improvement". my suggestion would just be to play an instrument as much as possible. even that i doubt has any real science behind it.

Good evening,

I received this question, today.   I can't give him an answer, so I'm asking you folks.

Here it is:
Do you know about any of these products or heard others speak of them regarding using it to âwake upâ or âtone-conditionâ the wood of a h.dulcimer. What are your thoughts?


         Prime Vibe

A local guitar shop in town uses ToneRite to condition all their new guitars for 6 days or 144 hours which significantly improves the tonal quality of the instrument. Also they recommend periodic treatment because left untreated the wood will gradually lose its âtonal-edgeâ.

Thank you.
