Read the letters from J.Wong

Hi friend, I am J.Wong, the designer and the founder of Tone City Audio.

In 2005, I bought my first electronic guitar and one distortion effect pedal when I was in high school, as I played more, I was deeply attracted by so many timbres from kinds of pedals abroad when I just heard online. But I did not want to ask for so much money from my mother to purchase them, then I had an idea to design pedals by myself.

This decision made me taking one year longer than my friends to finish my major because I spent most of university time to studying kinds of English data on effect pedals and books about electronic by myself. These helped me a lot to design . My first pure hand-built pedal was completed which was an overdrive pedal and it was inspired by the legendary green distortion of the 1980s, it made me known by users in the biggest guitar forum in China in the second year of my colleague . But my major was about BAS (Building Automation System),so I spent one more year to finish my major and graduated from university.

Well, it was not a good news for a student in China maybe, but I did not feel regretful because I found I can’t stop designing. After I left from campus, I persist what I love till now. After 6 years design carrier in a company,I hope to control all the key points on a product design, then TONECITY was founded in the end of 2014.

Tone City is young and new brand, but we are full of passion. Each product comes out after many time’s verification. It is not perfect, but we are trying full effort to make best. We will be always commitment to provide good pedals with high quality and superior timbre and related instruments for musicians all over the world.

For protecting the environment, all of our pedals are designed without using battery and packaged plainly and simply.

Thank you for choosing us.

Hope all of you can enjoy playing on your own stage.


From Tone City Audio.


The second letter from J.Wong

To all of you!

Hello friend, it has been eight years since my first letter to you!

Many things happened during the past years, I hope all of you are well!

During the past nine years, we received many letters from our customers.

Some people  wrote generally to express:“Are Tonecity pedals analog pedals? they are so good at this price! ”“your pedals worth several times more on the price” “your pedals are always on my pedal board, they work excellently” “keep up the good work”, etc. I regard all your words as praise and encouragement and great thanks.

And some people wrote to us just to say thanks for providing so good analog pedals, I am happy too as you did not buy them as toys but use them in your daily guitar playing. Isn't it the best orientation of our pedals? To me, being used with high frequency is the most important value of a good pedal, I hope our pedals can work at each moment of your playing.

Tonecity focus on designing and manufacturing guitar pedals combining all analog technology and superior sound, excellent quality and providing affordable price by our best, so that more and more people who love playing guitar will enjoy by using professional 100% analog pedals. If you are happy with the sound our products bring you, I am happy too. I share the same happiness when they were completed designing.

We also received letters from users who care about our new products. Actually it really takes time to give a birth to new product. I have my own requirements on designing, When I want an ideal sound, it usually takes times and times to debug and remake the design, even though sometimes I thought it would be the time almost getting the sound I want, actually it was a sound far from what I want!  Fortunately, it was like the darkness before dawn! So thanks for keeping waiting for the new products.

Tonecity is not a fast growing brand, it started from a pure idea at my young age, and it was given birth when I wanted to take care of all works to make it come true, and it grows with tenacity no matter what happened.

I am always happy on my choice to design pedals years ago no matter what happened during the process, and I am happy my pedals well works for you in your guitar playing. I want to tell that no matter how small or great an idea or a dream sounds, if it makes you feel happy and full of passion, then just take care of this “idea seed” and take action for it, when you enjoy this, you are creating! It may not grow very fast, but someday you will make it come true.

Worth your time, enjoy your playing and create your music!

Be heared as you wish !
