Announcing Third-Generation Smart Guitars: Jamstik 7 and Jamstik 12

Introducing the Next Generation Jamstik MIDI Smart Guitars — The Jamstik 7 and Jamstik 12

We're absolutely ecstatic to let you all know that the new Jamstik models are officially available on Indiegogo—the Jamstik 7 & Jamstik 12. The new seven and twelve fret models open up even more musical possibilities for guitarists, learners, and producers alike.

The Jamstik 7 and Jamstik 12 are powered by all new technology and were designed from the ground up based on market research and user feedback. Each model will boast a new capacitive touch fretboard, aiding in reliability and cost-effectiveness. Zivix has also developed a state of the art optical sensing method for gathering pick and strum velocity.

At just over 18 inches long, the new design of the Jamstik 7 stays true to the portable size of the jamstik+ while adding more frets for improved playability and ergonomics. Measures were taken to ensure the model remains cost-effective in production—yielding a more accessible price point for those that want to learn or play while they travel. Initial testing points to over 72 hours of playtime on included AA batteries, so players will have one less charging cable to worry about. Wireless connectivity over Bluetooth means players can connect to their favorite devices and start playing in no time.

At 25.5 inches in length, the Jamstik 12 is the longer, faster, and more feature-equipped model for the players and tech enthusiasts. Compared to the Jamstik 7, it will feature more processing power, along with a denser array of sensors in both the capacitive touch fretboard and optical pickup. These advances capture more nuances of expression for improved accuracy and a more realistic guitar performance. A Li-ion battery will be rechargeable over a specially equipped USB port capable of transmitting lightning fast MIDI. This cabled connection is complemented by a BLE chipset for wireless connectivity.
