"to a certain extend"

Shitty proofing in ad copy loses my attention.  Hype, hype hype.

  Hype, hype hype.

Did you watch the video?  It does change the sound of the guitar, and it's not a subtle "golden ear" effect.

I suspect it's just a variable load, either capacitive or resistive, on the output of the guitar.  Probably only works with passive pickups.  Any active electronics would buffer the signal so that the extra loading would have minimal effect.

Of course, how many guitars have you seen that didn't have some sort of "tone" control knob on them anyway?

Completely agree.  Surprised how pronounced the effect was - I was expecting something far more subtle.

But wouldn't be for me.  Why not use tone controls on your guitar/amp.  Or use a pedal.  The interface seems cumbersome (reaching round to the plug) and possibly prone to accidental adjustments.  And, if your cable's damaged, you've lost your tone control!
