If you want to play guitar with a bit of autotune support, you are in for some good news today. Peavey had unveiled its AT-200 electric guitar which packs autotune pitch correction as far back as January this year. It has finally made the new guitar model available now.
Peavey’s release comes at the right time to commemorate the new year. Apparently, the company had plans of making the new AT-200 model available nearly a year after having launched it.
AT-200 is certainly a must-have for guitar enthusiasts, because it includes a smart autotune correction technology. The tuning of the strings is not done through an additional piece of hardware. Rather, AT-200 includes on-board DSP technology which tune the strings to just the right pitch on its own.
To kickstart the autotune function on the guitar, all you have to do is push the tone knob which is located towards the front of the guitar. The knob puts the autotune into action and players can tweak autotune settings to set their guitar to a number of different tunings.
The guitar also holds, by default, 200 popular tunings from Antares, who has developed the DPS technologies for AT-200. It is juiced up with four AA-size batteries and is mostly made up of basswood, giving it a sleek and elegant look.
Although Peavey is looking forward to put up the new guitar for a retail price of $999, it expects that the street price will linger around $499. You also get to choose between black or red models of the guitar. Watch the video below to catch a closer glimpse of AT-200.
