Is the Jamstik 12 available for left-handed players?

Yes. Just select left-handed when you make a order. The models themselves are reversible & built equally for both righties and lefties, but we'll have to string them up in reverse and set the firmware so you'll be ready to go when it arrives, the same time as righty models!

Will you support Android?

Our first priority will be supporting our iOS and the Chrome web-browser experience, play.jamstik.com.

While select Android Devices running Android 6.0.1+ are able to connect, we cannot officially announce widespread support for the platform at this time. The variability of devices & lack of software support may prevent a full experience. However, we are certainly monitoring the situation closely.

The Jamstik 12 is a class-compliant MIDI controllers, and therefore any platform that provides protocols and infrastructure for our devices will be supported. 

The Jamstik 12 is positioned for existing guitarists, can I learn with it?

Absolutely, you'll have access to the same learning apps & experiences built for the JS7. You'll just have more runway to explore the rest of the fretboard and utilize additional controls & tighter performance once you graduate to creating.

Will the Jamstik 12 work with my DAW?

Yes! The Jamstik 12 is DAW compatible and will work with any software or apps that accept MIDI input, including Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, GarageBand, SampleTank, and hundreds of other

Does the Jamstik make sound on its own?

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.

Can I use headphones to plug in?

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. 

What happens if a string breaks? Can they be replaced?

We sourced high-quality custom guitar strings from D'Addario—one of the largest string manufacturers in the world. The mechanical design is very durable, and the strings do not flex as much as a normal guitar, so a string should not break under normal conditions. However, guitar strings do wear down and oxidize over extended periods of use. If one does break, it can be easily replaced for no charge within our 180-day warranty. The strings are custom made for the jamstik12 and replacements will be readily available on our website.
