Jamstik GT

I was wonderfully surprized at the beautiful sound and if played on through an apple cellphone the strum and sound is with no delay. Now I can see if my strum and chord is correct. One of the best trainers I have seen. Thank you

The lag between phone, bt and speakers huge.

It's cool as it's own thing. But useless as a training tool for guitar. The lag is ridiculous. Sad I wasted $200.

Hi Lucas, unfortunately there is nothing we can do about the bluetooth speaker lag. We recommend using wired speakers or headphones. The inherent delay in bluetooth audio sources renders things fairly unplayable. We hope you would reconsider your review after changing your audio setup, but understand if it is not for you.

Great Product, backed by fantastic support

I can't say enough about my Jamstik 7. I purchased one a couple of years back but have not had a chance to regularly use it till now. I am amazed at the thought that has been put into the development and ease of use. Tutorials are well laid out and plentiful. I have always wanted to learn to play guitar but found it daunting. They have made it fun. Recently I had some issues with the product but I was amazed at the level of support and understanding. A true testimony to their passion for the product and support excellence! I would highly recommend this product to anyone who is in the market for an easy and fun way to learn and practice guitar.

My nephew absolutely loves it and can hardly put it down. He has recruited me to learn along with him. It is a very fun and interesting way to learn the guitar. Watch out for our upcoming duet...LOL

Could be btr

The concept and flexibility of usage is great and brings it to life without having to have a real guitar with you all the time, but the portal for learning still needs work in design, teaching, and displaying information.

It works okay

I bought the jamstik for music creation. It is functional. Response to notes is way less reliable than you want it to be, there’s no bending recognition, and the strings feel very, quite wrong to “play.” However, it’s tough technology to make, and it does work; cool creative potential, just expect to handle a good deal of frustration in the process. Sadly, it gathers dust for most of my sessions now because the frustration can impede the creative flow prohibitively much. I’ve wanted one of these for years though, and hope Jamstik will continue to research and improve!

    FAQ

    Is the Jamstik GT available for left-handed players?

    Yep! Make sure to select Lefty in the dropdown menu before you add to cart. 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.

    Will you support Android?

    While select Android Devices running Android 6.0.1+ are able to connect, the audio processing capabilities across devices are not quite up to par with our standards, so 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 is a class-compliant MIDI controllers, and therefore any platform that provides protocols and infrastructure for our devices will be supported. 

    Can you create with the Jamstik GT?

    Definitely—After you've logged some hours learning on the Jamstik GT, you can take your skills over to music recording apps like GarageBand or Soundtrap to build your own tracks!

    Does the Jamstik GT work with my DAW?

    Yes! All Jamstiks are DAW compatible and will work with any software or apps that accept MIDI input, including Ableton, Logic, Pro Tools, GarageBand, SampleTank, and hundreds of others.

    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 Jamstik products and replacements are readily available on our website.

    How are the batteries charged? Are they replaceable?

    The Jamstik Guitar Trainer has four included AA batteries for up to 72 hours of continuous play. You may also use rechargeable AA batteries.
