Zivix’s jamstik+ Smashes Kickstarter Goal, on Pace to Donate Hundreds of SmartGuitars to Educational Organizations

Helping support a new generation of musicians, Zivix is working with Little Kids Rock, Romeo Music, MacPhail Center for Music, MyMusicRX and Notes for Notes

MINNEAPOLIS--()--Zivix, the technology company striving to make music accessible to everyone, continued its commitment to education, announcing more than 100 jamstik+ SmartGuitars are earmarked for Little Kids Rock, Romeo Music, MacPhail Center for Music, MyMusicRX, Notes for Notes and other amazing organizations. This mission coincides with its current Kickstarter campaign in which the company pledges the donation of one jamstik+ for every 15 Smart Guitars that are backed on Kickstarter. With 28 days to go, the campaign is rocking with tremendous engagement and a message that is resonating with audiences: You've always wanted to play guitar. Realize your dream with the jamstik+. Anyone can play.

“The jamstik+ is ideal for anyone who wants to learn guitar because it's a guitar and lessons in one. The included jamTutor app series walks you through step by step. Its compact size not only makes the jamstik+ perfect for practice and play on the go, its size is also ideal for children," said Chad Koehler, vice president, Zivix. “Our commitment to music education supports organizations that bring the joy of music into the lives of children, many of whom may not otherwise have the opportunity.”

The jamstik+ is currently one of only a few music products in the world with Apple’s latest Bluetooth MIDI specification. For the jamstik+, these advancements in technology translate to seamless connectivity, reliability and even better performance. One of the many benefits of the new Bluetooth technology is having connectivity without tying up users WiFi connections. Users can be connected to any iOS device and still browse the web, look up YouTube videos of their favorite musicians and download their favorite MIDI app to use with the jamstik+.

Additional Features of the jamstik+:

  • Lightweight and ultra-portable, making it ideal to practice or create music anywhere
