Tascam CD BT1

A versatile practice tool that incorporates a CD drive with lots of cool features.
Input your bass and monitor through either headphones or audible amplifier. Place a CD in the player, dial up the blend between CD and instrument then you're away laughing. When playing along with the CD you can do the following: cut or boost the recorded bass track, shift the key of the track, change the tempo while holding the tuning. The unit has a myriad of features for playback and amp simulation such as instrument eq, effects, metronome and tuner.Also a loop function for those real gnarly passages you need to learn.
Last summer I took a gig bag away on holiday with bass guitar, CD BT1, headphones, lead and CDs and taught myself the entire set list of the new band I was joining.
It does seem to be a bit fussy about choice of power pack, probably a current draw issue.
