HyVibe Essential

HyVibe, makers of the HyVibe System, announces the latest addition to their line of smart devices: The HyVibe Essential. This new device can be self-installed on any acoustic guitar within minutes, without cutting any holes or using any tools, transforming it into a HyVibe Smart Guitar and allowing you to play with studio-quality FX, a looper, and Bluetooth speaker - all coming from the vibrations on the top plate of your acoustic guitar.

The HyVibe Essential is available for preorder on Indiegogo starting now for only $240 (EUR 219) for a limited time (regular price $360 and EUR299). HyVibe hit their initial funding goal in less then 2 hours after they launched the campaign.

HyVibe is the only Smart Guitar technology that excites the top plate of the guitar and the only solution that uses 2 actuators. This is possible because HyVibe’s patented technology controls the frequencies (and cancels feedback) of the guitar to provide the best sound quality possible.

Key features:

  • Built in Effect Processor Self-amplify customizable guitar effects such as chorus, reverb, distortion, pitch-shifter, tremolo, acoustic boost, etc. directly from the body of the guitar.
  • Built-in Looper Connect the Essential to a Bluetooth device and experience the fun of recording loops and jamming over them directly through the guitar! Instantly record new song ideas and get inspired!
  • Bluetooth Speaker Connect your HyVibe Essential to a Bluetooth device and turn your guitar into a connected speaker. Jam along with backing tracks or even stream guitar lessons for an enhanced learning experience.
  • HyVibe Mobile App Use the HyVibe app to customize your effects, EQ your sound, and much more. iOS and Android.
  • Self-Amplification Our patented technology enables us to use two actuators to excite the TOP PLATE of the guitar. We are the only solution in the world that excites the guitar this way, ensuring we generate sound using the best resonances of the guitar.
  • Output to Amplifier Plug your guitar into an amplifier and use your effects & Bluetooth stream on stage.
  • Rechargeable Battery Rechargeable and replaceable lithium ion battery. A full charge gives you more than 10 hours of continuous playing.
    Bluetooth MIDI Connect the HyVibe Essential to a Bluetooth MIDI controller to wirelessly control the looper and change effects.

“We took great care to make installation easy and immediate,” says Matt Volsky, co-founder of HyVibe. “The interface is easy to use, just press the preset button to activate any effect. You can also turn on multiple effects at the same time to blend them and enhance your sound.”

Top guitarists from around the world, like Ronnie Wood (The Rolling Stones), Post Malone, Eric Krasno, Isaiah Sharkey (John Mayer Band) and many others, enjoy playing the HyVibe Smart Guitar. With the new HyVibe Essential, any guitar player can find the same inspiration and superior sound quality on their acoustic guitar.
