Swordtail Music is based in Lafayette, Colorado. We design amplified tone control products for acoustic string instruments.
Started in 2014 by James Connell and John Brown, Swordtail Music sought to address the challenges and constraints faced by acoustic string players playing in live amplified settings. Our line of Swordtail products allows unprecedented on-board control of tone and volume for a variety of pick-up systems.
