iamqman's review"Computer on!"

Alesis XGuitar
Alesis Xguitar is basically a computer-based guitar instrument. This is a guitar that is somewhat unique and unlike anything that I or most people have ever seen. This is a guitar that is for someone who likes to play around with a load of effects or processing and doesn't want to spend too much time perfecting their instrument. This is a guitar that has basically built-in digital effects within the instrument. It's very a futuristic sounding type of technology. Overall it's the not exactly my cuppa tea.

Features
80 programs, each a factory preset that can be edited by the user or restored to factory default

9 effects modules, each with multiple selectable effects, over 40 different effect types

8 different signal routing options for re-ordering effect modules

28-bit high-quality effects including reverbs, delays, chorus, flanging, amp emulation and transposition

Master volume and two tone controls

Simple up/down toggle switch to facilitate program changes on-the-fly

Built-in auto-chromatic tuner

1 dual humbucker and 2 single stack humbucker pickups

Expression pedal input for volume, wah-wah control over effect parameters

30 hours of operation (on 4 AA batteries)

Stereo/headphone output on 1/4 in. TRS connector


The tone of this guitar is not something that you really want to talk about . They are really emphasizing the ability for this instrument to be a working computer or effects-based instrument. Much like a keyboard or synthesizer is to a piano, this guitar is to the regular guitar. If you're someone who likes to play around with certain sounds to come from the keyboard and don't really be more proficient at playing the piano this is good to be a similar analogy. This is not really a guitar in the sense that it makes you want to play and get proficient at your instrument but it's a instrument or novelty that gives a user a cool new style of an instrument. I wouldn't necessarily this say that this is exactly a guitar because it's a new novelty type of instrument.


These guitars have been discontinued for a while but you can find them the used section of many classifieds. I don't think they're very expensive. I think you can find them for right around $200 or so. It's not about price for someone who probably wants something that can be a fun time waster. But if you're trying to learn how to play the guitar I wouldn't go with this instrument. I would deal with your standard old cheap guitar that will allow you to get your basics and your chops down.

bertoduchnord's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" a little disappointed"

Alesis XGuitar
the preamp is unique. This is the only guitar Dotte of this system, but it remains to be improved. While the concept is great, both in terms of many sound settings possible, and in the number of sounds available. But the big bémole remains at the sound quality. Some are clean enough to live but the cons I've given up trying to make my studio recordings with it.

the handle is very handy and provides good playability. Access to the different setting of the preamp is just as easy and enjoyable.

the sound quality is pretty nice built-in headphones but once connected to an amp ... my god this is poor!

it will be 7 years since I have this guitar and I confess it take a little dust ... I consider it more like a toy than a musical instrument. Being able to walk anywhere with an electric guitar containing countless built-in sounds and can play without a headset socket is pretty cool!

Stratocaster guitar shape, with the following recorded among the importer CHARACTERISTICS:
- Alder body, handle stocky, rosewood fingerboard, chrome hardware,
- Mcaniques oil bath
- Bolt,
- Pickups: 2 single coil, 1 humbucker.
- Slecteur 5 positions,
- 1 potentiomtre volume
- Multi-purpose Intgr RESOLUTION 28 preset programs with 80 Bit / user ditables (9 cumulative effects from 40 DIFFERENT)
- Chromatic Tuner Intgr,
- Input for expression pedals,
- A switch for enabling or disabling of multi effect - Use battery-powered (4-AA) with 30 hours of battery or AC adapter (optional)
- Select a swith to steal programs.
- 6.5 mm Stereo Jack output for connection to amplifier or headphones - Weight: 3.4 kg.

The interface is typical of a Stratocaster, so with its default and (especially) its quality! You just get used to the single volume knob and two switches to activate / program change. It is extremely well finished but do not forget that 300 is a guitar ...
The sound effects are not correct, as any copy of Start 'but with this micro INTERESTED double well for CASC + musical styles.
The sound with effects, I find trs good (unlike the first opinion) and really efficace.Les reverbs / dlais are beautiful, heavy distortion / crunch crdibles (not the big distortion mtallique! ), the tuner is just a lightweight pratique.Il "transit time" of a pRSET another.

This is a guitar store that I tried on an "old" Valvestate 20W clear sound, it is not for me (I am used this ct-l!).
I admit that j'tais doubtful before testing but this guitar is made dcente for the price (- 300). To teach unencumbered home amp, effects, etc. ... or jam to go why not?

The finish is not great but ...
1) The multi-purpose Intgr sounds good trs
2) it is comfortable to play
3) sounds correctly without effect
4) it is not CHRE

Bah! I find it a lot. A good look strato good grip, good sound effects off with a set of microphones interesting. I bought 220 new on EBAY. Can be a bit heavy, but we feel we have something in his hands.

So the for the game Gnial. A friend had me before a prt j'achte mine. a run. I have all left "on the c. .." There are nice sounds in rglages factory. In fact, it seems to play several guitars. But to get back in programs ....

I tried to program my own effects. I compltement is no ... it is mission impossible, in fact, I use it with a sound rather prrgl blues style, I added an old distortion pedals of the 70, a limiter breath .. . and roll my chicken. I manage to have a good heavy sound and bold style in Carlton and Lukather "the pump".
Again, if anyone can help me program it.

I use it for 2 months;
I find it unfortunate that it comes in one color.
I tried many things but much more Chres.
I sell beautiful toy that can be better if I find my game
