Battery Power

Plug into traditional power with an AC adaptor (included) or roam free with batteries. Jam for hours* with eight standard AA batteries installed (Ni-MH AA rechargeable batteries). A battery-strength indicator lets you know when battery power is getting low so you never miss a note onstage.
*Approximately four hours of continuous use per 8-battery load.

Audio Player

The built-in Audio Player feature lets you sound like an entire band. Simply load up a USB stick with your favorite songs in MP3, WAV, or AIFF format, plug it into Lucina's USB port, select the song you want, press Play, and jam along!

Hands-On Control

Put a personal stamp on your performances with the expressive controllers built into Lucina. Wave your hands over the invisible D Beam for dramatic effects, and dig your fingers into the Modulation Bar and Touch control to bend, twist, and sculpt each sound you play.

Premium Black Sparkle Finish

Newly added premium Black Sparkle finish is a perfect for your performance on stage. The gorgeous glass-particle UV finish changes color and luster in various lighting.
