The summer heat urges us to shed the clothes, although the constraints of upbringing and the business ethics make us drop the veil of mystery hiding the redesigned Jammy instead!
I’m pumped up to present you the new Jammy right now, but bear with me for a few more moments and let me point out to you the reasons behind our decision on changing the Jammy’s mechanics.
Aiming for the best playability-to-portability ratio in digital guitars, we had been searching for the perfect harmony. And the ‘trombone-guitar’ Jammy happened to be a bit out of balance -- it was far more portable than it was playable. So, after the thorough playability tests -- with the participation of some of our backers, too -- we had to give up the sliding neck concept and give in to the idea of the two-part Jammy.
Supported by our backers (thank you guys!), this big change allowed us to kick up the playability a notch, and also make the Jammy look rocking cool. So behold the new, redesigned Jammy!
It’s still bloody portable! Only 17” when disassembled, the Jammy fits into most any backpack there is and complies with the airlines’ carry-on regulations. And its 15 standard-sized fret neck is suitable to play the majority of rock songs
The sturdy attachment mechanism is durable enough to go full Pete Townshend on it (though we strongly disapprove of breaking the perfectly good guitar!
We’ve added a ¼” jack to the ⅛” one -- so you could plug your Jammy into an amp and stick your earphones in all at once. We’ve also improved the battery to extend the operating time from 2+ to 4+ hours of active playing.
Now, let’s get to the sweetest part of the Jammy -- the one that makes it the future legendary guitar. It looks iconic in every detail -- from the inlays and covers to the bold-shaped frame-deck that allows you to play sitting. The frame can be disassembled into two pieces fitting perfectly into one another for more portability. Sure thing, you can still use a strap to play standing tall!
But enough talking! Without further latency (pun intended) I introduce you this raw unedited video of the Jammy prototype playing -- with no lags whatsoever
So, what do you say? Please let me know what you think about the new Jammy design by answering only one question here! If you have any additional thoughts and questions about it, don’t hesitate to hit me up at email@example.com!
P.S. When all is said and shown, we still stick to our timeline and plan on kicking off the batch production of Jammys in August.
P.P.S. If you happen to be in Nashville, TN, on June 28-30, don’t hesitate to pop by at our booth #1221 at the NAMM show for a friendly chat and the Jammy test-play!
