Product Description

Apogee's Jam brings the legendary sound quality of Apogee to iPad, iPhone and Mac for just $99. Now guitarists can have a pocket-sized, plug in and play interface at an unprecedented price and experience ultimate tone with the guitar amps and effects in Apple's GarageBand software or other compatible applications.

Pristine digital sound for ultimate guitar tone

Apogee Jam is a premium digital converter featuring PureDIGITAL technology which delivers your guitar's true tone to your iPad or Mac without compromise. Apogee Jam is the first high quality interface that makes a digital connection to both iOS devices and Mac. You will notice the sonic difference between JAM and other similar products immediately.

Highlights

- PureDIGITAL instrument connection for pristine sound quality
- Designed specifically for electric guitar and bass
- No configuration, just plug in and play
- Easily adjust input levels for any instrument
- Multicolor LED for status indication and input level monitoring
- Made for GarageBand, Logic, and MainStage
- Works with iPad, iPhone 4 and Mac

Ready to rock -- Status and level indication

It's easy to tell if Jam is connected properly by the status LED on the top panel. If it's green, you are ready to rock and the light becomes your input level indicator. If it turns red, you are rocking too hard and you need to turn your gain down with the control knob.

Jam status and level meters

Blue - Jam is connected but not ready, Green - Jam is connected, ready and working with your software, Red - your level is too high.

Crank it up and dial it in with easy level control

Jam features an input gain control knob. This rotary style wheel is conveniently located on the side of Jam for easy thumb access and allows you to dial in the level of your guitar without accessing software.

Plug in and play

There's no difficult set up or configuration with Jam. Just plug in, open your favorite software and rock out.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
"Get this"
Overall: Was using an iRig (which is a neat sub-$40 gizmo) but the sound was very noisy. Plus, it didn't plug into my mac. Decided to take a chance on this unit...OMG...the sound is crystal clean..no matter what volume. None of the garbage noise you get from units that plug into an iPad's or iPhone's headphone jack. With garageband (on Mac or iPad) this thing is awesome!

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Big Bang For Your Buck!"
Overall: These guitars are very playable and a great value. The frets are larger than vintage ones and the neck seems to have a vintage/modern radius on it so if your looking for bone vintage than these may not be for you. After having my tech set it up it played gloriously. The Tex-Mex pickups are a little dark for my taste and will probably be swapped out for Klein epic 62's at some point but for an out of the box strat their great. I know I may catch hell form the collecting crowd, but as a pro player for 20 years now, I don't really see much difference between this and a run of the mill Custom Shop strat. Yes, the custom shop will have better hardware and whatnot, but is it really $2500 better? In my opinion, no, and I've owned both custom shop and vintage fenders. My only complaint is that they could have done the neck in nitro as well, and maybe added a top coat of yellowing,but then the price would rise significantly and defeat the purpose of these guitars. All in all you won't be disappointed by these instruments.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
