DVForge has announced the April 8th shipping date of its new JamPod plug-in guitar practice amp module for the iPod and iPod mini.
“We have talked with many of the millions of guitar and bass players who own iPods,” said Chuck Leonard, DVForge’s Executive Vice President, “And, a frequent request from these musicians has been to have a way to conveniently plug in their instrument, and play along with the music on their iPod or iPod mini. We have developed the JamPod as the perfect gadget for making that wish come true.”
JamPod is a 1.6″ x 1.6″ x .5″ gloss white module that plugs into the headphone jack and the remote port on top of any dock connector model iPod or iPod mini. The JamPod is powered by the iPod, so requires no batteries. Inside the JamPod is the same high quality miniature guitar amplifier circuitry used in our company’s JamPlug product. There is a mixer circuit that is controlled by the top-mounted volume wheel to adjust the output level into the earbuds or headphones. A 48-inch white guitar cord is included for connecting a guitar or bass to the JamPod.
JamPod works with any electric guitar, electric bass, or other instrument that sends a guitar-level output signal through a 1/4-inch instrument jack. The product will begin shipping on April 8th at a MSRP of $29.99, and is available today for prepaid pre-order from their web site.
