Practice guitars come in all shapes and sizes, but I like them when they feel like a regular guitar. That is what Jammy does – gives you that real guitar feel while being able to compact itself down for travel situations. And not an acoustic guitar, either. Full electric guitar (or acoustic) sounds.
What is Jammy?
Jammy is a collapsable practice guitar. You can break it down for travel, then put it back together when it’s time to practice. You don’t even need to put the whole thing together to work on chords, scales, and more.
Jammy comes in 4 pieces – the neck, the picking area, and the body pieces. The neck and pick area both are stringed parts. When they come together, it will feel like you are working on any electric guitar. The strings are adjustable in tension, and the 15 fret board is standard size.
On the end of the pick area, you have an output jack, a headphone jack, and a USB port for connection with a computer.
With the Jammy App, you can create different guitar sounds, learn patterns, use a metronome, or jam to backing tracks. The app is for iOS and Android.
When you input the guitar tones, Jammy will remember so you don’t have to use the app all the time. Select the next sound by turning the dial on the front.
I got to play it for a little bit at CES, then NAMM. It was fun to assemble and jam out. It was also pretty quiet, so the neighbors won’t get disturbed. It did win a best of show at NAMM.
Jammy is in Pre-Order for $449.00 – a $50 savings from when it ships. Check out PlayJammy for more info.
