Tone was a bi-monthly magazine combining coverage of technological developments in New Zealand and from around the world with reviews on the latest consumer products available in New Zealand.
It was Parkside Media's third magazine, following NZ Classic Car and NZ Performance Car. Until issue 32, Tone was bi-monthly. A change was made to monthly, but as of issue 73 (November/December 2008), it returned to bi-monthly.
Tone's logo features a small coloured triangle. Internally this is called 'Jerry'. Jerry changes colour each issue to match the cover design.
Version 2 of the logo appeared in issue 32 when the magazine changed to monthly.
Version 3 of the logo appeared in issue 44.
Version 4 of the logo appeared in issue 67 and changed the tagline to Gadgets | Hi-fi | Home theatre, from Technology to change your life.
