VOX Amplification announces the Apache Series of bass guitars. The classic VOX Teardrop and Phantom basses gained numerous followers since their release in the 1960s. VOX has now re-visited these enduring designs in the all new Apache Series travel basses. The Apache1 Bass offers the iconic Teardrop body shape while the Apache 2 Bass features the Phantom body style. All models boast an onboard amplification system and four colorful finishes that complement their distinctive design.
These basses are outfitted with a complete bass amp containing a full-sounding VOX 4" speaker that offers two powerful sound variations: Normal and Bright. A full complement of Gain, Tone, and Master Volume controls provides access to a wide range of tones. Powered by AA batteries, the built-in amp will run for approximately 26 hours. The Apache basses also contain a total of 66 built-in rhythm patterns. In addition to providing accompaniment, these patterns are ideal for rhythm training or for backstage warm-up before a concert.
The Apache 1 Bass is available in White; Seafoam; Salmon Red and 3-Tone Sunburst, while the Apache 2 Bass is available in White; Seafoam; Salmon Red and Black. All models will be available in November 2012, for a U.S. Street price of $349.
