Add some chorus to your unplugged acoustic guitar… Wait, What? 

We would normally start an acoustic guitar description by describing how the LAG THV10’s are built under the supervision of Maurice Dupont and features a solid red cedar top with mahogany back and sides. We would also generally explain how the guitar sounds both bright yet has warmth. BUT despite this guitar sounding great this isn’t what your here to read, if you’ve tried our demo you want to know … where are those effects coming from!?

This THV10 is the child of a beautiful collaboration between LAG and HyVibe, featuring a built in effects processor connected to two actuators underneath the bridge. This turns the guitars top into a speaker of sorts: We can create delays, octaves, chorus and even overdriven sounds all in real time without plugging into a pedal or an amp. To say this guitar seems like magic is almost to make light of the fascinating technology and innovation taking place here, this can be best shown via the use of the inbuilt LOOPER.

That’s right let that sink in for one minute … this acoustic guitar … has a looper … built in. All of these features can be controlled from the guitar but link it up to the phone app and even more options open up such as combining effects and adjusting effect parameters even further. LAG and Hyvibe are committed developing more effects for the HyVibe system which will be available via upgrading your app. This really is the gift that keeps on giving. If all of this was simply in an everyday guitar it would still be epic but the fact is the THV10 as a standalone instrument is superb to play with a pleasing tone for those times you wish to switch off the tech and play ‘la natural’.
