          Comments about Tascam CD-BT2 - CD Bass Trainer:

          I really like all usefull features of this product, but there are two drawbacks:
          - No power adapter in the package (only optional). This device requires a LOT of batteries, even when I not listen CD, just play on my bass without any musical background. I have 2 sets of Eneloops XX (2500 mAh). When the first set is in CD-BT2, the second one is in charger. I change them every 3-4 days. So I think I'll have to buy power supply soon.
          - No slot for any type of memory card. Just CD. Its quite uneasily: for listen any backup, you have to dowload necessary album, then record to CD, and only after that you'll be able to listen and play it. May be Tascam GB-10 will be better choice if you don't want to be faced with described problem.

          But again: it is still a great and usefull devise for any bass player.

                It works perfect for me because I can't always play my bass and stereo at the same time.

                    All the features are highly usable. Worth the money. I would have given it 5 stars if the tone quality weren't so much affected when its tempo is decreased to (-30) and slower; and, especially if the CD's bass can be boosted even more.

                      The tempo and loop features are great and make it pretty easy to figure out bass lines. The ability to cut the CD bass is also pretty useful for adding your own bass fill. There are lots of other cool features like the built in tuner, flash back, headphone or line out options and some okay effects. It's cool that it it is portable and can run on just 4 AA's, but it's too bad the AC power supply is optional.

I'm on my second one and I can tell you with great certainty, I got my monies-worth out of the first one. Excellent for use late-night when you want/need to practice. Learning new songs is a breeze! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT TO ANY MUSICIAN...New comer to professional.
