We are a French Start-up that offers innovative and rechargeable products, which replace the 9V battery present inside active guitars and basses.
First, we work as a team of engineers, in the electronic engineering design office of Hubert and Mickael, the Vaudoos chefs.
A design office where all the members are also musicians. Some play together, others play alone or manage to replace an entire group by playing alone.
One day, the chef Vaudoo, during a full bass solo, realizes that the 9V battery inside his “active” bass is no longer very active. He had once again forgotten to charge the battery and to bring a spare battery.
From then on, the team set out to create a rechargeable, simple and efficient system. The B.M.S, Battery Management System, which gives the instrument more power.
We were able to take advantage of the know-how and expertise of the design office, specialized in connected objects and integrated systems to design our products.
After a few years of research, the product was created, tested and approved. We now had to give it a design and a name.
We added the light system for the practical and aesthetical side, which to know in one click the remaining charge on the instrument.
And since we found it magic, we said to ourselves “But this is witchcraft! No, it’s Vaudoo.”
We have also created the Vaudoo preamplifier, of professional quality, to be integrated into basses or guitars, by testing it until we reached a high-quality sound result. Better sound.
We have provided different possible customizations, the choice of the number of adjustable bands and frequencies, and to adapt to each instrument, a number of potentiometers varying with the possibility of adding adjustments. This is all done without adding a hole, thanks to double-stepped potentiometers.
More power, Better sound.
More than a simple rechargeable battery, our electronics, specially designed for musicians, allows you to:
- Recharge via the micro-USB port
- Check the remaining battery level
- Automatic shutdown to avoid deep discharges, ensuring reliable power for years
- To have a stable, constant and noise-free voltage for the entire duration of use (selectable from 5V, 9V, 12V, and 18V)
- Onboard batteries with a level of safety and lifespan far superior to conventional lithium technologies
We also offer a range of onboard preamps for bass and electric guitars that take advantage of the onboard power source to provide an improved sound experience. These preamps are (ultra) customizable, you will find on our site all the information to build yours, independently or with our help if necessary.
