Vader's Vault Combat Class sabers are made for the active saberist. The designs in this category have to meet strict criteria of sleekness, durability and aesthetic appeal. Each design in the Combat Class category is slim, and most sabers have a general outer diameter of 1.25" and a length of 10" with a few models being the exception to this. This makes for an extremely well balanced saber for spinning, stunt work, or dueling, without feeling like you're grabbing a D-Cell flashlight. The internal design is just as attractive, sporting a one piece machined Delrin chassis that holds the 18650 size battery cell, soundboard, and 20mm 3 Watt speaker. Don't let the size fool you, these sabers are packed with awesome features that before now, just weren't available in sabers of this price point. You get the best in the industry for LED lighting with your choice of either a nice single emitter or ultra bright Tri-Emitter lighting solution. Plecter Labs, undoubtedly the best quality in soundboards, produced an extremely small, feature laden soundboard for us to use in these compact sabers. Features like swappable sound fonts, configurable sensitivity parameters, color mixing and changing, and quality you've come to expect from Plecter labs with low latency motion detection, crystal clear audio and efficient design are all packed inside. So whether you're looking for the best saber for fight choreo, stunt work, or an all weekend Con workhorse, these sabers are right for you at a price that's right for everyone. Don't forget to browse and purchase a custom soundfont from Saberfont.com!
All Combat Class sabers will come with a VV 32" Dual Diffused blade, single 18650 Li-Ion battery cell, charger, and blade retention wrench.
A bit about the Crystal Shard soundboard:
The Crystal Shard that comes in our Combat Class sabers is a tiny soundcard that is packed with rich features previously only found on higher end soundcards. With the low profile auxiliary switch that is on the underside of the saber (180 deg from the main switch), you have access to six, that's right SIX soundfonts, Pulse, Flicker, lockup and blaster sound effects even at the base price starting at $299. You also have the ability to have TEN different main blade colors and ten different Flash on Clash colors (color change requires RGB upgrade) at any time and a very user friendly way to change those ten blade colors at your whim (see Video below). The three fonts loaded on the saber will be the default "Graymeat, Darkmeat, and our Imperial Knight" soundfonts. Other awesome custom fonts for you to fill up your SD card are available at Saberfont.com
