Kihncert 2010 - Voyage-Air TelAir ON STAGE

The Greg Kihn Band rocked out last night at the Kihncert 2010, held at the Shoreline Amphiteater in Mountain View, CA.

Voyage-Air staff was there. Why? Greg Kihn played the new Voyage-Air TelAir folding electric guitar ON STAGE for the concert.

The band kicked off their set with their cover of the Dave Clark 5's "Glad All Over" - and man, this set the tone for the evening. The Voyage-Air TelAir Guitar was front and center as Greg put it through its paces... for almost every single song! Greg and his band powered through their most famous hits like Jeopardy and The Break-Up Song: "They don't write em like that anymore." The crowd went crazy as the hits kept coming. The Greg Kihn Band kicked off a star-studded rock-and-roll evening that included Blue Oyster Cult and Lynyrd Skynyrd.

After the show, we asked Greg about the playability and the great sound and tone produced by the Voyage-Air TelAir folding electric guitar, and he said: "This is truly a great electric guitar. You would never think that something that sounds so great could fold-in-half, much like the Voyage-Air acoustic guitars. I was able to crank up the volume and get the sound I was looking for! This is one cool sweet sounding electric guitar!"

Note: The Voyage-Air TelAir and Belair electric guitars are not yet shipping to dealers... yeah, Greg Kihn has connections. If you have pre-ordered a Belair, keep in touch with your dealer: they'll probably be available in a month or so.

    I received my VAOM-1C and boy does it sing!  I am the proud and happy owner of several top-notch Martins: a D35 Johnny Cash, a HD28e, a solid DCPA4R as well as a 1973 00-18. I also had a 2003 D18 which I sold because it wasn't so good. I was expecting the VAOM-1C to sound ok but not more. "Can't have the best of both worlds" I thought. Well, now I do. It is just exquisite, so melodic and yet with a surprising sustain and expressivity. It is a true jewel at a more than decent price! All the Best and THANK YOU!

    My wife and I travel a lot and in the past have had issues with taking a guitar with me......they're either too bulky for the overhead compartment, or I have to let the luggage handlers toss around my guitars like they're a bag of beans. I recently purchased one of your VAOM-04 guitars, and I'm totally impressed with the sound and the playability of this instrument. My first choice is my Martins, but since I received the VAOM-O4 I haven't put it down. I would recommend this guitar to any player, even if you don't travel that much. I'm looking forward to my next trip. I may just spend most of the trip playing this guitar.
    Great Job Voyage-Air.

    It’s considered a “travel guitar,” and it truly is a remarkably portable instrument; however, that label does it a disservice, because honestly, it’s a damn nice guitar. It just happens to have a nifty set of hinges that allow the neck to fold over on the top, making it far more compact and transport friendly. I love my Telair!

    I am pleasantly surprised at the quality and genius behind this amazingly compact, but great sounding guitar!! I work in the movie industry and travel quite a bit, and being able to bring my guitar as a carry-on wherever I go is just what I've been looking for! The overall sound is amazingly rich for its size, and the folding mechanics work like a dream! If you’re wondering if it's worth getting, the answer is a big YES!!

    I bought a VAD-04 strictly for travel and light use. The day I bought it I paid a visit to United Airlines. As I was walking up to the counter the clerk said that he had seen these before and that there was no problem taking it on as carry-on. .I think that this is a great value and a nice sounding piece All in all it is a winner in my book. I’ve heard less sound from much more expensive instruments. I may mike it because I think it compares to my Taylor 814ce and Breedlove it surprised me!

    I travel a lot, and for years, I schlepped my heavy Goodall Jumbo, always worried about it getting damaged and stolen.  I recently purchased a Voyage Air guitar and love it.  Its light, gets on planes, and sounds terrific. It has made travelling with a guitar a no-brainer.  Even after closing and opening, it stays very close to being in tune. I recommend this guitar to anyone who likes to play wherever they go.
