The battery-powered Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp allows you to practice silently in any location, and to have great tones at your disposal. The rotating input plug has 90 degrees of motion, so the V1 from C Tech can plug into any bass guitar jack--no cable needed!
The Pocket Rock-It Bass Headphone Amp's 2 "big" and 2 "tite" settings, with separate settings for active and passive pickup simulation give you tons of tone versatility. The Filter control is a continuously variable EQ that adjusts high and mid-range frequencies of the amp emulation model selected.
If you do decide to let the rest of the world in on your V1b headphone amp sessions, use the line out for recording or preamp applications. Jam with your CDs or MP3s with the line in or connect two Pocket Rock-Its and jam with a buddy (adapters and cables included).
The C Tech Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp is designed, developed and engineered in the USA.

I bought this at my local GC a few days ago simply because I need to jam more with my bass to get back into the groove after years of not playing. You know how we NEED drums, and songs to play along with for practice. Playing through my amp confines me to my living room, and limits my volume levels too much at night. This does not take the place of an amp, but is good enough to get some "non invasive" play time in, anywhere you need to. It does an adequate job for the cost. The 2 amp models can work in your favor when you tweak your setting on your bass. With my active electronics I prefer the tite setting, it's not so muddy. It does have a few issues other have pointed out, like the very tight battery cover...which requires pressing down a bit hard to lock it closed with even thumb pressure, carefully. Also, the headset is really cheesy, so I use my Audio Technica digital monitor headset, and it improves the sound tremendously. It got louder and cleaner so I'm happy overall. The jack plug fits my Schecter C4 Custom snugly(bottom mount), and is pivoted to mount in any direction needed, so it folds down for gig bag storage. Overall, I would recommend getting one, it does the job!
I bought the Pocket Rock-It V1b Bass Headphone Amp with realistic expecations and wasn't disappointed. With my jazz bass (passive) and my own headphones, the sound quality isn't great but is good enough for an occasional practice session. The plastic construction (polystyrene?) isn't awful but would probably break over time or if dropped badly. I bought the V1b to take on vacation because there wasn't room to bring my 12" practice amp. After one day, I had plugged the V1b output into a boom box because playing with headphones or ear buds is lousy. For the next vacation, I'd buy a Roland Micro Cube Bass RX or similar. If you are short on money, you can buy an 8" practice amp for only a few dollars more than a V1b. If you really, really don't have room for even an 8" amp, I'd recommend the V1b.
Very pleasantly surprised by this little unit. All plugs/cords/headphones included, but I use my Bose QC3 or Bose InEar headphones. Great sound, with plenty of volume.I use the line-in for playing along w Mp3, which also sounds great. Plugs right into bass, allowing me to move around, head out on deck, take with me to practice when visiting family, etc. Highly recommended and Great Value. My teacher was also impressed with it.
Works awesome.The fact that I live in an apartment I dont disturb my neighbours.I print off song tablatures and burn the cd for that song and then play it through a portable cd player hooked up to the v1b so I can hear the song while I'm playing the bass.This helps on tuning and rhythm.When the neighbours are not home I crank up the big bass amp.Alot of fun enjoy!
Not nearly what I expected from the write up. They didn't really lie but I don't feel was the whole truth. Lacks the Volume with the headset provided I thought it would provide. It will do the job of giving me an opportunity to hear the bass, but even with active pick ups and the volume all the way up it is just barely passable.
