(almost) Any MIDI controller/synth and the Yamaha MT-BT01. Works just fine and no discernible latency (certainly nothing like Bluetooth audio).

Or the Korg Microkey Air.

Bluetooth MIDI has a minimum latency of 7.5ms. For Garageband you're looking at about 15ms latency total. Most people can tolerate 11ms of latency when software monitoring an audio input with a buffer setting of 128 samples.

Personally I only use BT for controlling parameters. The jitter is quite brutal.
