    Haven't had time to play with it yet! :hide

    But it looks very promising... :)

    It's great for practice, I'll say that. You can also record quite a bit on it as well, 30 minutes worth.

    Outside of that, I'm not fond of song/sound presets and the really awful thing about it is once it's on, you can't turn it off.

    Definitely not something you'd want on a rig, but it's a great tool nonetheless.

    Enjoy, and accept it for what it is...a very good practice tool, an excellent looper and a stand-alone device.

    The build quality is not that great, BUT it is a great practice / songwriting tool. I have it in it's amp form ... The Spider Jam. Best practise tool I have ever come across, would I want to gig with it? No! But it does not take away the fact it does what it does very well.

    BTW I agree, most of the inbuilt jams are odd, but you can use what ever you like on an sd card.

    Personally I tend to use the drums on their own as they are very good and then loop my own phrases for practising / jamming to.

    Good little practice unit.

    Cheers
