Now guitarists can learn their favorite licks from CDs, play those CDs as backing tracks while playing along, and amplify the whole shebang in one unit, with TASCAM's new GA-100CD. Tascam have identified a range of possible users - singer/songwriters can play along to CD backing tracks, guitarists can learn tunes with the whole band in tow, and beginners can have a Trainer and an amp in one.
Basically, the GA-100CD is a 100-watt combo that allows the guitarist to play along to any CD without the need for additional amplification. Tascam have taken their CD-GT1MkII – the CD Trainer that lets you slow down a song without changing the pitch, making it easy to learn licks and phrases – and added a 2-channel guitar amp. With a 12" custom-voiced RockReady speaker for the amp section and two 5" speakers for the CD Trainer section.
Tascam say that what sets this combo apart from others is its Neo Tube™ technology - An analog, solid state circuit has been created that works the way tubes work – and sounds the way tubes sound. Not digital modeling but what Tascam say is a painstakingly researched and designed circuitry with the fast, natural response of tubes and the tried and true durability of solid state.
