WE LAUNCH AN UNPRECEDENTED GUITAR WITH:
- Wireless connectivity,
- Integrated strap system,
- Customizable elements
It's in the end of 2013 that Tocxic Instruments was born, based on the observation that some musicians lacked time to practice their favorite instrument. It's true that the set up of an electric guitar is long and complicated (many cables to untangle and to plug, twisted strap, tuning, etc.).
On this idea of easing the use of the electric guitar, we embarked on the adventure and the creation of a new musical instrument brand. Soon the two founders join expertise in electronics, mechanics and instrument making and imagine technical solutions to be tested. This is confirmed, Tocxic will be the brand that offers solutions for faster use to allow musicians to play more often.
No more hassle to connect the guitar to an amp or put the strap on the guitar!
Naturally, this brand will address guitar players of all levels, whether professional or amateur. All those who limit themselves to play acoustic guitar because it is immediately available.
Early 2014: The AXIOMA
During 2014, with the help of a manufacturer-prototypist we developed and validated in our secret laboratory and workshop a guitar that offers integrated functions (wireless module) and integrated strap (furling system) that will let you spare time! Its design is still conventional, while differing from the classic Stratocaster or Les Paul. This took more than a year of work.
SUMMER 2014: The ALTERATIO
At mid-year, while continuing the works of research and development, we launched a design competition to devise a form of modern guitar in the Rock 'n Roll style. The goal is to translate the spirit of the brand, a different guitar which invites to play at any time. Thus was born the ALTERATIO, the new model that suggests breaking rules, and difference. Therefore we now have two products to appeal to the greatest number.
On this occasion the team is growing with a designer, because the opportunity is too good to shake this little world of instruments manufacture.
In this idea to propose a strong identity, the guitar grip areas (the Horns as we call them at Tocxic \m/ ...) are replaceable and highly customizable. The colors and materials vary in configurations studied by Tocxic, offering a guitar that corresponds to the desires of each client. The upgrading can be done through the use of noble materials covering the removable parts. For example, the use of leather or other natural materials allows almost limitless customization.
Some examples of possible customizations:
Horns in woven linen fibers
Horns in blue leather
Horns in red leather
Yellow Relic + Horns in woven Linen fiber
Everything is ready to move to the next step: produce a pre-series and start a business. That is why we are launching this Crowdfunding campaign.
