VOX introduces the Type 1 Plus Mahogany to the Starstream lineup. This new variation features reimagined electric guitar models using the AREOS-D modeling system, providing an even more expressive performance experience. A new, true passive mode allows for standard electric guitar performance, without the need for battery power.
Created to provide a wide range of sounds including electric guitar, acoustic guitar, synths and other stringed instruments, the VOX Starstream Type 1 Plus Mahogany is the ultimate product for players looking to expand on what the electric guitar is 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 Plus Mahogany offers exciting new possibilities.
Incorporating the AREOS-D system, the Starstream Type 1 Plus Mahogany is the latest expression of VOX’s long-standing tradition of breaking through the boundaries of onboard guitar electronics, putting control over your sound at your fingertips. The system integrates several essential elements: magnetic pickups for authentic electric guitar models; a piezo pickup system for rich-sounding traditional instruments; a powerful DSP engine; familiar volume, tone and pickup selector controls and a Control Module that provides instant access to important parameters. Whether you are looking for the flexibility of 27 instrument models instantly at your command or desire the convenience of tailoring models to sound amazing through headphones, the Starstream Type 1 Plus Mahogany offers an unmatched sonic experience.
Advanced ergonomic considerations led to the unique frame construction. While traditional electric guitar designs are rooted in the 1950s, the Starstream Type 1 Plus Mahogany follows a new path.
