We designed our pickups to measure the interruption of light beams, instantly translating string movement into MIDI sound.

Touch sensitive navigational D-Pad & Shift button controls.
High-quality custom guitar nickel steel strings from D'Addario.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
The Jamstik Guitar Trainer has four included AA batteries for up to 72 hours of continuous play. You may also use rechargeable AA batteries.
