The BB-800 portable recorder by TASCAM makes on-the-go recording easy. It features two XLR microphone inputs, which can be used independently or blended together with four onboard microphones. The BB-800 records both in CD-quality WAVE and compressed MP3 formats using SD card media. A built-in speaker system allows for playback, and its ability to run on AA batteries, built-in tuner and metronome, and audio slow playback and looping function make the BB-800 a great portable option for guitar players.TASCAM BB-800 SD Card Stereo Audio Recorder at a Glance:

Four built in microphones with XLR inputs for an additional two microphones
Right out of the box, you're ready to record with the BB-800. Four built-in microphones — two on the front and two on the back — mean you don't have to worry about plugging anything in. However, if you want to hook up a pair of microphones, go right ahead! Two XLR jacks allow you to plug right in. You can even mix the microphone inputs with the built-in mics, so you can sing into your favorite dynamic mic and play out loud, and the BB-800 will capture both at once.
Reinventing simplicity in a portable recording device
The simplicity of recording with the BB-800 takes you back to the days of recording on a cassette boom-box (without the need to rewind). By running it on eight AA batteries, you get the convenience of portability &mdash but the BB-800 includes an AC adapter so you don't have to rely on batteries either. To record, all you have to do is hit a single button and the BB-800 does its job. By using inexpensive SD and SDHC card media found in cameras and smart phones, you can get up to several hours of recording onto a single card in MP3 format. You don't even need headphones, thanks to the BB-800's 10W stereo sound system.
Musician-friendly features for a better way to practice
Variable Speed Audition with Key Control allows you to playback audio at a much slower rate without distorting it or changing its pitch. That makes learing to play those hard solos or intricate pieces with the BB-800 much easier. An onboard chromatic tuner provides a must have tool for any guitarist, and the BB-800's metronome provides audio-visual feedback for building your timing skills. The included wireless remote control means you don't even need to put down your instrument to access all of its important functions, so you can focus on practicing.
