Dragonfly Powerless Stethoscope Amp Released

- Press Release

True North Music Productions has announced the release of The Dragonfly Personal Powerless
Stethoscope Amp, a lightweight, portable amplifier that requires no cords,
electricity or batteries and allows musicians to maintain their chops in
virtually any environment.

The Dragonfly is fitted with suction cups that attach to the backs of
most electric or bass guitars. The device amplifies a guitar's sound into
headphones, which are included. The straightforward stethoscope technology
produces natural, studio-quality sound and is an upgraded version of the
same technology used in a doctor's stethoscope.

The Dragonfly provides players with a lightweight, natural
amplification device that can be transported anywhere. Both amateur and
professional musicians who travel often and need to practice without
disturbing anyone or play in confined spaces such as hotel rooms use the
amp to play their guitars under less-than-ideal circumstances.

In particular, U.S. soldiers in Iraq have purchased The Dragonfly
because it allows them to amp their guitars in an environment where
batteries are scarce and electricity is often unavailable. The Dragonfly
also helps musicians play their guitars without disturbing others as the
headphones restrict the amplified sound to a musician's ears.

"We thought that people who love playing guitar would simply play more
often if the whole process was less cumbersome," said Bob Cerone, True
North's owner and creative director. "We basically tried to create an amp
that would allow people to play their guitars with great tone and without
the hassles of batteries or a guitar cord - for more meaningful practice
sessions and without disturbing anyone."

The Dragonfly also attaches to acoustic guitars and functions as a
vocal training tool. Singers can hear their voices vibrating and correct
themselves when they're out of tune. Before performances, musicians can use
the amp for precise tuning or for instrument adjustments.

The amp's patent-pending technology was created by Cerone. He came up
with the idea for The Dragonfly while playing his acoustic guitar with an
original rock band when he had a cold. When he placed his ear against the
guitar to hear the notes, they resonated like a heartbeat. He later
channeled this experience into designing an amp that projected sound in the
manner of a stethoscope.
