One of the most important things to have when learning any musical instrument is regular and accurate feedback. The Jamstik provides real-time feedback as you play, so you'll know if your fingers are placed correctly, removing any guesswork!
The main learning companion software is the Jamstik Portal for iOS and Google Chrome, which should provide essentially 15+ of your first guitar lessons, plus plenty of extra replayable content like the interactive scrolling tab player. Once you graduate and learn the basics in the Jamstik Portal, we recommend honing your skills with education apps like Corridor Music, Flat.io or Soundtrap!
Lastly, we created these Jamstiks with authenticity in mind. They are built to the specs of a real guitar, so the skills you learn with it will directly translate to a full-size 6 string instrument.
As with any skill, learning guitar takes practice! However, we've done our best to make this process fun and engaging. Many users find that simply spending time with a Jamstik, exploring new sounds and capabilities has helped them become familiar and more comfortable with guitar in general. Building a device to bring more people into music has always been our number one goal, and we'll continue to evolve the software to match!
No, just like a lot of MIDI keyboards, you'll have to connect it to a device (smartphone, tablet, laptop/desktop computer) running our apps or third-party software to create the sound.
Yes, you can use headphones—one of the main reasons to use the Jamstik is because you can have a private playing experience! That said, you cannot plug headphones directly into the Jamstik. Instead, just plug them into the device your Jamstik is connected to.
Note: You'll want to use a wired connection (aux cord) instead of Bluetooth headphones.
Definitely! The biggest difference is that the Studio model does not have sensors in the fretboard, so you will see the note or chord on your device after it has been played, rather than seeing your finger positions in real-time on the fretboard.
