DVForge Inc. announced Friday ship dates for its JamPod, a plug-in guitar practice amp module for Apple’s iPod and iPod mini along with JamPlug FM, a plug-in FM music transmitter for guitars and The Clips — a set of three mounting clips for the iPod shuffle.
JamPod is a module that plugs into the headphone jack and the remore port on top of any Dock Connector-equipped iPod or iPod mini. Powered by the iPod itself, JamPod works without batteries and measures 1.6 x 1.6 x .5 inches. It includes a mixer circuit that lets guitar players adjust the output level of the device and the iPod’s music to their headphones or earbuds. JamPod works with any instrument that sends a guitar-level output signal through a 1/4-inch instrument jack. It includes a 48-inch guitar cord. Expected to begin shipping on April 8, 2005, JamPod costs US$29.99.
JamPlug FM is an FM music transmitter for electric guitar or bass. Measuring 1.2 x 1.8 x 3.5 inches, the gloss-white device plugs into the output jack of any electric guitar or electric bass and transmits that output to a nearby FM radio receiver. It has a built-in rechargeable batter, removable flexible FM antenna and ships with a power supply/charger. It’ll begin shipping on April 8, 2005 for $49.99.
The Clips are a set of three different mounting clips designed for the iPod shuffle. Included is a belt clip, a gripper clip and a push pin clip. All three clips secure onto the iPod shuffle’s USB plug end and are made of white plastic and stainless steel. The Clips ship on April 6, 2005 for $14.99.
