  2. My girlfriend has one and she loves it.

    The BassBootCamp guys are selling what looks like 'last year's model' for closeout pricing ($40) along with registration. I've got a headphone amp that's serviceable (and was $20...) but I thought I'd give this a go in case it's better - or I find myself needing a backup some day.

    So - I'll let you know in March, when I get mine...

    I'm skeptical of any integral-plug device because I doubt they will be compatible with a Synapse deeply recessed jack - but we will see (and I'm not taking a Synapse to the BBC...)

    I was considering getting one of these for practice on the back porch, vs. dragging my amp+cab back there.

    I know they make ones for bass & with more amp models, but I thought the guitar one with grit would work better for what I play.

    Anyone have any experience with them, good or bad?

    I have one of the first generation models. Bought it over 10 years ago and it's still working. It's a great tool. I plug in my mp3 player and practice along. I have not tried any other models on the market but i think this is probably one of the better ones. The rest seem pretty basic. Mine looks like this but mine is the Bass specific model.
