This portable amp is a great product, I was lucky enough to meet the Japanese man who designed it for Roland, and he really knows his stuff. I wish I had invented it; If I was an amp designer instead of an instrument designer, this is what I would want to have come up with. I have used it personally so many times, on batteries, at shows; it is loud enough for a room, and the battery life is amazing. The suite of effects built into it is like a box of crayons with a bunch of colors, and a perfect complement to the strumstick with pickup. Now, if you have a big Marshall stack, and 20 guitar pedals, you don't need this. Unless of course you want to take an amp to a party and play without the neighbors calling the cops...Bob McNally

The Built-in Pickup allows connecting the Strumstick to an amp, effects, PA, or computer interfaces. Plugging into an amp greatly increases the sound possibilities of the Strumstick; add Treble or Bass, play crystal clean or add " edge" to the sound (from a sharp bite to rock/blues/metal overdrive). Effects devices (stand-alone, or part of many amps) add spacey new-age echos and lush shimmering "fullness" to notes. With an appropriate interface device, you can record into Garage Band or many other recording applications. The Built-in Pickup is the access point for all these musical features. And the Strumstick still sounds great when you are not plugged in.
Piezo-type pickup, Custom designed for the Strumstick by Schatten. 1/4" jack (standard guitar cable) connector.
