JamPod Guitar Amp Module for iPod to Ship Soon
March 28, 2005
The JamPod provides a way to conveniently plug in an instrument and play along with the music on an iPod or iPod mini.
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 miniature guitar amplifier circuitry used in the 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 the DVForge web site. For more information, visit their web site at www.dvforge.com.
