There are a lot of people that really love playing the guitar. Once they become good at this they really want to step it up a notch. But, to buy additional equipment to allow them to do this comes with a lot of negative aspects. There is a solution though and it is Jamstack which is a device that is being hailed as the first attachable guitar amplifier.
Jamstack is a small attachable device that can be attached to any electric guitar within a matter of second. Once done it acts as a standard amplier or it can be plugged into a smartphone. Either way there are some amazing effects that can be produced.
There are a lot of amazing claims being made about Jamstack. Such as it has a bypass button to play without the phone. Or when in Bluetooth mode it become a top quality Bluetooth speaker. It carries 10 watts of powers and the drivers are 1.5 inch. It is quality made for performance and durability.
The big hype for Jamstack is the compact size. Imagine not having to lug around a large amplifer or having to invest substantial money in the traditional applifying equipment.
For those that are ordering Jamstack from their site they can expect to pay $249.
The first commitment will be to convince oneself that something so small can be as powerful as what Jamstack is. There is no big learing curve that comes with it. It is just a matter of attaching it then enjoying what it has to offer.
There are several factors that need to be evaluated and it seems that Jamstack passes all of these with flying colours. It is lightweight, compact and only takes seconds to start using it. It is top quality in its components as well as sounds.
Final Jamstack Review
Jamstack is full of possibilities when it comes to achieving different effects. Users can play along with any music they choose on their smartphones. They can access learning apps to enhance their skills. There are presets that can be experimented with. We are prepared to give Jamstack a thumbs up which we feel is a valuable resource for any guitar player.
If as yet you have not learned how to play guitar then this may help.

I returned my amp back in May per their return instructions. The amp worked OK but was not what I was expecting. A bit on the heavy side and a short of volume.
My issue is not with the amp itself. My issue is that I have yet to be credited. They do not answer emails, or facebook messenger. Also there is no phone number to call or physical address to even write a certified letter to. They have blocked me from their support form as well. My login doesn’t work any more.
If anyone has a way to contact them, please post it!
While the product is very cool in theory, and while i have had some fun with it, it is a disappointment in terms of practical use.
Most of the apps that have to be used from 3rd parties to “model” amplification and effects have an unacceptable level of latency. Meaning the sound you are trying to articulate when you fret and pick a note doesn’t sound like it’s being played in real-time. The end result is that the pick attack is clipped off the front end of the note. The way a player picks a note on the guitar is incredibly important. It’s vital to conveying the emotion/style/feel etc of what you are trying to get across to the listener.
I found an app with an almost acceptable level of latency, but when amps and effects are applied, the feedback and background noise can be off-putting, to say the least. It can make the unit down-right unplayable at a reasonable volume.
I think I can tinker some more and get a few amp/effect combos that are acceptable, but we’ll have to see.
That said, the concept is great, and if the company can create a native app that solves the latency issues an finds a solution to the feedback, this will be a very useful tool. I don’t mind being an early adopter, I am confident I can tweak it enough to be “good enough” for living room jamming and busking. I implore the creators to continue to improve it!
This thing is DOA. No volume. No tech support number to call either!! I just emailed that email above. Let’s see if they respond.
