adaptor with a three-foot extension and
plugged into the stereo 1/8 input jack. Using
my in-ears I wanted to jam with some Earth,
Wind and Fire on Spotify. There was plenty
of headroom. And with the vibration on my
back, it was a fantastic practice experience.
The Headphone Volume controls both Bass
and Aux input together. By adjusting the output
on my iPhone, I got a nice mix to jam along to.
I like the BackBeat. As a bass player, it’s an
excellent experience to be able to feel your
bass in live situations. Many of us have to use
a DI with no amp on stage. Drummers usually
have a “butt kicker” attached to their throne to
emulate a large sub next to them without the
stage volume that comes with it.
Wearing the BackBeat makes playing in those
situations a lot more fun, and more inspiring.
It’s interesting how it enables you to hear the
notes through your back. After getting used to
it, I missed it when I played again with it off.
Besides being useful tracking and playing live,
it’s perfect as a practicing tool. Playing along
with tracks on an iPhone, and feeling the bass
without disturbing anyone is amazing. On my
studio bass, I leave it connected to the strap,
so it’s ready for recording or practicing. I’ve got
the charger close by.
If you are looking to get more “feel” in your
current playing environment or looking to get an
inspiring way to practice the BackBeat uniquely
provides both. I hope you get a chance to
check it out.
