Guitarbud: iPhone becomes Guitar Amp


Guitarbud is a new and unique cable system that allows you to plug your guitar directly into your iPhone. You can use it with many guitar apps!


Paul Reed Smith Guitars's Guitarbud opens up creative possibilities as wide as the range of suitable apps currently available for the iPhone and iPod. These include the simple Voice Memos that comes with the iPhone, now useful for recording quick riff ideas or song sketches.

The Guitarbud is a portable guitarist’s interface and is designed specifically for musicians by Bond Music Research in conjunction with PRS Guitars; makers of PRS Signature Series Cables Guitar Cables. The 6 foot special instrument cable allows freedom of movement when you play, and links your headphones with your instrument.
