Vox Apache I Bass

Select Option:
Product Code: M67272
4-string Travel Bass with Built-in Amp and Rhythms
Description
The APACHE Series travel guitars resurrected the popular VOX Teardrop and Phantom body styles. Now, the APACHE Bass makes these unique designs available to the bassist as well. As with the guitar models, there are four color variations, each with a pop sensibility that matches its distinctive design.

The VOX brand is a legendary presence in the history of electric guitars and basses. With their distinctive body shape and stunning aesthetics, the VOX Teardrop and Phantom basses first debuted in the 1960s, and captivated musicians from around the world. Today, more than fifty years later, these iconic instruments have come to life in the exciting APACHE Bass.

In addition to the authentic body designs, these tricked-out travel basses host a 2-channel bass amplifier, speakers, dozens of rhythm patterns, even a convenient E-String tuner – all built right into the bass itself! Combining cool, retro looks to satisfy the enthusiast with play-anywhere convenience, these playful and spirited instruments are a highly attractive choice. In addition to fans of yesteryear's Teardrop and Phantom, these exceptional basses are also a great choice for entry-level players and bass students, as well as for musicians seeking easy playing at home or on tour; and of course for all collectors of unique and exotic instruments.

Onboard Amplifier for Play-Anywhere Portability!
While the APACHE Bass takes its styling cues from the past, the feature set is totally up to date. Contained in the body itself is a complete bass amp with speakers! The amp offers two sound variations: Normal and Bright. A full complement of Gain, Tone, and Master Volume control provides access to a broad range of tones. A 4" VOX speaker deliver a full, powerful bass sound. Enjoy the play-anywhere portability of the APACHE Bass's built-in amplifier, wherever you go!

Built-in Rhythms for Extra Enjoyment
APACHE Bass instruments are fun to play thanks to their onboard amp & speakers; but there's more fun ahead using the built-in rhythms! In addition to providing accompaniment as you play, these rhythm patterns are ideal for rhythm training or for backstage warm-up before a concert. It's a great function for generating inspiration and adding power to your performance.

The wide selection of rhythm patterns will make playing your APACHE Series bass guitar more entertaining. Choosing one of the ten genres provides immediate access to standard styles including 8-beat, 16-bit, and blues; to other styles such as funk, reggae, and complex patterns in unusual time signatures. Each genre contains six patterns and one extended song pattern that is several measures long, for a total of 66 different patterns. Each of them boasts serious sound quality with excellent presence, allowing you to perform with the backing of real drum patterns. The tempo and volume of each pattern can be controlled with dedicated knobs; and it's easy to call up the exact rhythm pattern you need.

Convenient Connections
A headphone output is provided for private practice; plugging in your headphones will turn off the internal speakers. A traditional output is also provided, allowing your APACHE Bass instrument to be played through a traditional bass amp. The AUX IN jack allows an MP3 player, CD, or any other audio source to be connected so you can jam along with your favorite tracks. These new APACHE Bass instruments open up a world of possibilities that are unavailable with conventional electric bass guitars. Power is provided by six (6) AA batteries, delivering up to 26 hours of playing time with alkaline batteries. A soft case and a strap are provided.
