    The other part of that is, if the built-in mp3 player craps out, you're screwed...

  2. About the static, I do notice that if I plug my laptop's headphone out into my practice amp's line in, I get a static buzz when my laptop's connected to the power adapter, the buzz is there even if I OFF the power, I have to physically disconnect the laptop from the power adapter, but it doesn't happen all the time, I am guessing something to do with the power supply to my house.

    Having two types of headphones at same time sucks.

    Tascam bass trainer has been the best $150.00 bucks I have spent in a long time! It is a great gizmo no doubt!

    Yes.. a 4 channel recording behringer mixer can be found used for $20.. you can easily blend stuff for practice.

    NOTE.. the AC-20 works for bass.. save $10
  10. Seriously go with the Tascam.

    1. It's an MP3 player that looks like a Walkman - 200 song max I believe.
    2. I live in the UK - just charge it via USB port to your Computer
    3. Download then convert to MP3 and load 'em up.
    4. Built in Tuner
    5. Built in metronome

    I throw it into my Bass Case and I'm practicing at Starbucks or wherever. As someone said earlier, best investment I've made...besides my Jag...or my Markbass...or...:hyper:
  11. I see that the Tascam has a "drop bass" function, but can it do the opposite - i.e. "isolate bass" to drop out the rest of the band?
  12. ebs microbass would be awesome, but the cost is rather high, though i do hear tons of good reviews on it.
