NAMM 2020: Vox has lifted the lid on the Starstream Bass 1H and 2S, the latest in the brand’s sizeable NAMM 2020 catalogue.

Although their prices have yet to be revealed, the 1H and 2S models look to be more pared-down takes on the active Starstream Artist instruments, which were released last year. These new basses are ultra-modern, lightweight – clocking in at just 3kg – and compact, with a 30-inch scale length. The difference between the two can be found in its pickups: the 1H has a humbucker while the 2S has two J-style single-coils.

Besides that, both the 1H and 2S are identical. They each have a poplar body with an ABS frame, maple neck, 21-fret purpleheart fretboard, and are available in three finishes: Black, Red and White. However, they only come in four-string versions.

In comparison, the active Starstream basses have Aguilar pickups and preamp, an alder body, maple/ebony fretboards and snazzier finishes.

The Starstream 1H and 2S join Vox’s ever-expanding NAMM 2020 lineup, which now includes: the VC847 wah, two Bobcat semihollows, four Nutube effects pedals, a pair of headphones designed for guitarists, a pint-sized Superbeetle Bluetooth speaker, and the highly anticipated Cambridge50 modelling amp.
