TASCAM CD-GT2 Review

The CD-GT2 made me want to practice. Its portability makes it great for use in private lessons. Overall it is a great product for any guitar player.

The CD-GT2 is designed for both beginning and advanced guitar players. Being the former, I took the unit home with a guitar and immediately got started. Setup was very simple; plug in the guitar and a set of headphones. I began with the built-in tuner, which worked flawlessly. Selecting the different functions is very easy since each function has its own button. There is no need to navigate through a menu system.

The loop function worked perfectly. Three button presses had a short section of the song I wanted to learn repeating. The Variable Speed Audition allowed me to learn the section at my own tempo and then speed it up. Artifacts became obvious only at extreme tempo changes. The guitar canceler works best on solo guitar parts that are panned center, however TASCAM includes controls to help find the guitar part in the stereo field and eliminate it.

The effects selection is comprehensive and selectable in banks. Each bank has a combination of three adjustable effects. The beginning guitar player will find it easy to locate a setting with the desired sound, while experienced guitarists will like the adjustable parameters of each effect.

The CD-GT2 made me want to practice. Its portability makes it great for use in private lessons. Overall it is a great product for any guitar player.
