When I was a kid, it was my biggest dream in the wold to become a famous singer. I would sing along with everything, and even had a karaoke machine! During middle school and high school, I was even a very active member of the school choirs. I have even performed in a few musicals and local dinner theater type productions. So music has always played a big part in my life. Obviously, I never got famous. Life happened, and rather than pursue those pipe-dreams, I found my true calling in life: Being a mother.
I now have a preteen who shares similar daydreams of musical fame that I had at his age. Kyle LOVES to sing and dance, and he even writes his own songs. So when I got the opportunity to try out the new Paper Jamz Pro Series Microphone, guitar, and drum set, I was definitely excited. We had heard of Paper Jamz before, but to be honest, I had no idea what they were or how they worked. I was actually under the misconception that these instruments were made of paper or cardboard! (Oops!)
We were shocked when our Paper Jamz band package arrived, because not only are these products NOT made of paper, they are durable plastic that is paper thin! Hence the name, I suppose! These items are totally cool, too! The Paper Jamz guitar and drums act like like real instruments! I especially loved the guitar. While it has no strings to break, as you move your fingers along the frets, you can actually play chords and melodies, and there is even a realistic whammy bar effect! The guitar can be used for freestyle jamming or you can play along with one of the pre-loaded songs, or even add your own using the Paper Jamz app!
But the star of the show has to be the brand new Paper Jamz Pro Series Microphone! This mic is absolutely amazing! It has a little box that can be attached to your belt, and inside this lightweight box is where the magic happens. I don't know how they do it, but the Paper Jamz microphone can actually manipulate the user's voice in many different ways. It has a vibrato effect, a harmony effect, and even a full chorus effect that makes it sound like several people are singing all at once! Tone deaf? No worries! Paper Jamz has you covered with their Perfect Pitch setting that will have you sounding like a real life pop star in no time flat! (No pun intended.)My whole family loves this mic, especially Sophie and Kyle. They actually fight over who will play with it next! Kyle enjoys singing into the mic, while Sophie just kind of babbles. It's adorable to watch the kids in action with the Paper Jamz Pro Series Microphone! I wish they had something like this when I was a kid! I'm sure I would have driven my parents crazy with it!
Here is Kyle demonstrating the different settings of the Paper Jamz Pro Series Microphone!
Overall, we love our Paper Jamz Band Set. We can rock out together as a family, and any quality family time is awesome. Plus, using Paper Jamz, kids can gain a better appreciation for music and the performing arts. I would absolutely recommend Paper Jamz products to any family who has budding pop stars. These products are durable, fun, and offer an authentic musical experience that simply can't be beat!
