What are our Xeno & PixelBlade sabers?

You may have noticed we have a Saber Core option that can be a "Xeno PixelBlade" version. Just what is that? Glad you asked!

Each lightsaber needs both a soundboard and LEDs to drive the beautiful colors of the blades. In a base-lit saber (our RGBx Base-Lit Saber Core equipped sabers) there is an LED inside the hilt that shoots light up into a polycarbonate blade. The benefits of this are it's lightweight, doesn't draw much battery power, and the blades are easily replaced when damaged. 

On a pixel blade (Xeno & PixelBlade Saber Core equipped sabers), the LEDs are all throughout the blade itself. The benefit of this is you can produce amazing effects like in the movies such as scrolling ignition, flames, spot specific blaster deflects, and more. They are also extremely bright even in the daytime. The downside is they draw battery juice faster and they are heavier. If they do break, they can be a pain to pull the internals out and put them into a new blade - they are housed in a heavy grade blade, so this isn't likely to happen and our 1-year dueling warranty covers this!

So that explains the lights and blades, but what about soundboards? The Xeno board is an amazing soundboards for lightsabers because it produces amazing sounds, can be loaded with custom fonts (themes) by the user by simple drag and drop on a PC and has a very impressive smooth swing algorithm (sounds like the sabers in the movies when moved around and swung). In addition, it can be hooked up to your PC as mentioned for updating new sound fonts, and is easily updated to the latest firmwares when we release them. The Xeno board also drives the pixel blade and delivers the amazing effects.  

So overall the benefit to Xeno PixelBlade Saber Core equipped sabers are movie-like (extremely accurate!) effects, brightness and sounds, and the ability to update them with new sounds/themes and new firmware updates. They look and sound like the "real thing" more so than the RGBx Base-Lit Saber Core (which already do a great job of looking like the real thing). 

So if you're on the fence about the upgrade, I would recommend the Xeno PixelBlade Saber Core sabers to those who are serious about collecting lightsabers, or cosplayers who want the absolute best looking saber (the blade looks real in pictures even in daylight), or for those of you who want an authentic lightsaber experience just short of losing a limb!

    XENO Pixel is the Absolute way to go! They have amazing effects. Completly customizable with a varity of pre-loaded sound fonts. You can further customize each font with your own color, blade effect and ignition! Rebel Sabers has by far The Best sabers Ive ever owned.

    I was messing around trying to learn from Youtube videos on soundboards and all that, I made the mistake of deleting what was on the SD card. I managed to salvage the files but I think the order is messed up or something is causing it to not operate properly. Do you have some sort of instructions on getting the SD card and saber back to like a reset or standard set up? thanks
