Now I sound like Eric

I'm super happy with this product. Plug it into the Roland amp and your Strat tone *is* Eric Johnson. The capsule may feel expensive but you save on pedals and have a pretty wide range of tones from super clean to the mean violin tones available all from the amp front panel. The capsule was easy to install and I've had no issues with it whatsoever. Very pleased.


The best tone on the planet. Great pure clean tone and 3-Dimensional crunch that is reminiscent of the same Marshall amps from the 1960's. If you want Eric Johnson's tone, you can find any of them easy enough with a little tweaking of the knobs. All the best sounds of Marshall, Fender, Vox and the other great tube amps are there for the taking with this amp. I am using the Stage 60 watt 1x12 version. You can make up for the lack of the presence control by good tweaking of the reverb. The finest amp and the great feature of the Eric Johnson tone capsule sounds great with my Strat with single-coils or my ES 335 with PAF's. The best money I have ever spent.

Follow-up Review- Johnson Tone Capsule

Regarding my previous issues with the Eric Johnson tone capsule, the folks at Sweetwater (Adam Chesi and company) found the first Tone Capsule to be defective. The team quickly sent me a return label, and made a lightening fast return shipment of a new Capsule which sounds absolutely awesome!....NONE of the tone noise problems I faced previously! The new Capsule installed easier than the first and sounded great! Presto...I'm now Eric Junior! Thanks for the great support...You guys REALLY know your stuff.....You guys ROCK!

Great tone!!!!

Had issue with the first EJ Tone Capsule. Had to return it. Sweetwater sent a new very quickly!! Great tone. Chnages the Blues Cube Stage, in a cool sort of way. Still searching for the EJ big violin tone! However, the clean tone is like crystal clear tone and sounds great!!! Many thanks to Will Newbill my sales engineer!! Kudos to Sweetwater!

Follow up to my previous post. Using the capsule all the time now on the clean settings. Chimey, shimmering tone with my Guild Bluesbird, which tends to be too dark a sound. I am happy I got the amp and capsule. I just leave the thing in! Tom C
