Tascam GB-10 bass trainer.

  1. Hi all...I did a search for this bass trainer and didn't find too much here...only three threads?? Anyway, I apologize if I just missed the threads.

    I'm thinking of buying one of these and wondering if you guys have any pros/con's opinions on them. Have you found it useful, sound quality, ease of transferring songs from iTunes etc.

    Any opinions at all would be appreciated. It would be a gift for my 15yr old nephew who's just starting out on bass.

    If you already have an iPhone just use it. Get an interface to plug your bass into the iPhone. Amplitube is good easy app to use to do the same.
  3. I have a go 10 and love it you can, just put what you want on SD card and practice

    I had one and I felt it was way more than I needed. I like the ease of the plug and play Pocket Rock-It. The GB-10 is a nice unit though.

    I've got one, great for practice because you can slow stuff down while maintaining the original pitch, or change pitch while keeping the original speed (although the results can sound weird if change is too large). If your songs are in itunes, you'll have to save them as mp3 first, then copy them to the SD card to put into the GB10. Used it many a time while woodshedding for sub gigs.

    I have one, and I really enjoy using it whenever I can't play at full volume. I'll be honest, the user interface on it is pretty quirky. But once you get used to how it operates, it's pretty cool. Slowing down a song by 10 or even 15% is possible... beyond that, the quality gets intolerable.
