Zivix encountered some obstacles in the middle of their Jamstik product development effort. They had great new technology, great software, and attractive models. A successful Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign also meant they had many customers waiting for the exciting new product, but they were struggling to pull it all together into a fully functional, reliable, manufacturable, and marketable product.
Solid Design Solutions (Solid) took on the project to carry it that long last mile. With a fresh set of eyes and a focused, detailed, and analytical engineering approach, Solid rapidly re-engineered the product. A multitude of product performance, durability, material selection, and manufacturing issues were identified and solved. After extensive testing, Solid provided guidance selecting ideal contract manufacturing partners to take the Jamstik smoothly into production.
With real strings and real frets, the JamStik, through its patented sensing system, can see the player’s fingers, which provides users a first-of-its-kind system to learn and play the guitar. Play it almost anywhere on your favorite device with no tuning, low latency, and wireless midi connectivity. Beyond learning, it also works as a controller that digitally connects with hundreds of MIDI applications, allowing for unlimited uses.
