Vox has introduced the Adio Air BS, a compact and portable bass amp that is equipped with Bluetooth technology. It weighs in at just under seven pounds and is powered by an adapter or AA batteries.
The 50-watt amp features a ported design that enhances its low-frequency response. Its pair of 3-inch speakers is also angled upward for better listening. The Adio Air BS has 11 built-in amp models and four built-in effects, though utilizing Vox’s Tone Room software via USB or Bluetooth allows for a total of 17 models and 19 effects. Settings can be stored with four user programs. The Bluetooth section allows for streaming music from your smartphone, as well.
Other features include a built-in tuner, a Wide stereo mode, tap tempo button for FX 2, Vox’s Bassilator circuit, and JamVOX III modeling software. The Vox Adio Air BS Bluetooth Modeling bass amp is available for pre-order at $299.99. It’s expected to ship in mid-July.
