Tascam CD-GT2

The CD-GT2 is the latest introduction in the portable CD trainer line – a product category literally invented by Tascam. Like the popular original CD-GT1 guitar trainer, users have the ability to slow down the tempo of a CD track without changing the pitch allowing artists, musicians, students, and music teachers to practice, learn and teach fast licks, rhythm parts and solos from their favorite artists.

The CD-GT2 guitar trainer features an all new improved ultra-compact design, comprehensive LC display with graphical user interface, album title/track title indication by CD-Text, expanded effect banks for user preset, a tuning function, 3 octaves tone oscillator, and Tascam’s pioneering VSA feature (Variable Speed Audition, tempo control without affecting key).

With integrated tempo and key control, guitar canceller with selectable cancelling pan point and selectable frequency range, and seamless integration with CD-DA/CD-R/CD-RW disc playback, users can now discover the licks their favorite artist really played.
