Vox has announced its Starstream Type-1 Modeling Guitar.
Created to provide a wide range of sounds including electric guitar, acoustic guitar, synths and other stringed instruments, the Vox Starstream Type-1 is the ultimate instrument for players looking to redefine the electric guitar and what it can do.
Whether you are playing with a band, in the studio or practicing silently at night with headphones, the Starstream Type-1 offers exciting new possibilities.
Incorporating the AREOS-D system, the Starstream Type-1 is the latest evolution in onboard guitar electronics, furthering Vox’s reputation of breaking the boundaries when it comes to advanced guitar electronics.
Putting control over your sound at your fingertips, the system integrates several essential elements: magnetic pickups for authentic and classic electric guitar sounds; a piezo pickup system for rich-sounding traditional and acoustic instruments; a powerful DSP engine; familiar volume, tone and pickup selector controls and a Control Module that provides instant access to important tone-shaping parameters.
