Lightweight, compact, battery-powered modeling amps that offer realistic sound anytime, anywhere

The MINI5 Rhythm offers 11 amp sounds inherited from the popular and acclaimed Valvetronix Series, plus eight effects and a new rhythm function. You can choose from 99 different variations of rhythm patterns to back your performance or practice along to. The compact body also packs plenty of additional functionality such as a mic input, AUX input, and a dedicated E-string tuner, letting you play your guitar with the high quality tone you'd expect from VOX.

A rich variety of amp models and effects
There are 11 realistic amp models taken from the flagship Valvetronix Series that support a broad range of styles and playing techniques, including perfect simulations of the legendary VOX AC30 that capture the sense of drive typical of vacuum tubes, as well as models of intensely powerful high-gain amps and transparent, clean types. New to the series is a built-in VOX original "Bassilator" circuit, which covers the ultra-low-frequency overtones that cannot be obtained via EQ. This is particularly effective for high-gain models and produces an intensely heavy sound that seems unthinkable from an amp of this size. In addition, there's a pure and clean-sounding LINE input without any distortion, making it an ideal choice for acoustic-electric guitars or keyboards. There's also a full complement of effects, including compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo, as well as delay/reverb types. With a total of eight varieties of effects, you'll have plenty of options for shaping your sound.

Versatile rhythm functions
As its name suggests, the MINI5 Rhythm features a newly added rhythm function. It provides 11 built-in rhythms in styles that include 8-beat, 16-beat, rock, metal, and R&B, as well as a built-in metronome. With nine variations for each style, you'll have a generous 99 rhythm patterns to work with. You can easily call up the rhythm pattern you want and adjust its tempo and volume for a great way to jam along with high-quality rhythm patterns, to try out ideas for a new riff or phrase, or to practice playing to a beat to improve your performances. Since these rhythm patterns cover a wide range of musical styles, it is easier to get into the feel of the song being played, making otherwise routine personal practice sessions more enjoyable.

Battery-powered operation
The MINI5 Rhythm features two-way power that can run on batteries (six AA batteries) or an AC adapter (included). Batteries allow up to approximately 19.5 hours of operation (with POWER SELECT set to 0.1W), making this amp an ideal choice for street performances or outdoor playing. It also comes with a carrying strap for easy transport, letting you enjoy playing guitar wherever inspiration may strike.

Plenty of input/output jacks, ideal for the singer/performer
In addition to a guitar input, the MINI5 Rhythm also provides additional types of input and output jacks. The mic input provides an adjustable volume and lets you apply a delay/reverb effect, providing support for vocals. There's also an AUX input that can accept an external audio source such as an MP3 player. It can be used in conjunction with a guitar and mic, for a total of three inputs simultaneously. Also provided is a headphone/line out jack with a built-in cabinet simulator so that when you're recording directly into a multi-track recorder or practicing with headphones, you can obtain the same great cabinet resonance you'd get if you had set up a mic in front of the amp.

Switchable power amp wattage
By switching the wattage, you can regulate the volume while still retaining the sense of drive and air obtained by turning the master volume all the way up. The wattage can be switched in three levels: 5 / 1.5 / 0.1W.

  • Great amp, but crappy power supply.

    As reviewed by Kesler Roberts on 4/16/2014

    Very nice little amp. The line setting works well for acoustic instruments. Sound is excellent and loud for the size. The output switch is a great feature - even at .5W, this thing will fill up the room with sound with some models. I can't speak to the quality of the amp models, but to my ear they sound great, with a huge range from ultra-clean to Marshall stack huge. The effects are good, but limited, and the rhythm feature is cool. I didn't compare this to other cheaper amps that are out there, but the sound quality for my purposes is as good as, if not better than, the Yamaha THR10 that I tried (though without the advanced features and better effects of the THR.) The only negative I found is that the include AC adapter is crap. It creates a noticeable hum when used. However, I found that it works fine with another wall-wart that I have from a radio. I don't understand the electronics of this but the included power supply is very small and light and the larger one I'm using is larger and heavier despite having a lower wattage output - I suspect that this means that the transformer is better quality or at least better shielded.

  • Best amp in the world!

    As reviewed by patrick lyons on 4/24/2014

    The VOX Mini 5 Rythem amp. does more for me than any amp. I've ever heard of let alone owned.It lets me plug in my Yamaha CM500 head set into the mic. channel and headphone jack for great vocals with my choice of several reverb and delay options with or without the headphones on one channel with seperate volume and reverb controls for that channel.Then it gives a modeling guitar amp, clean to strong over drive and many choices inbetween.Again, a sepreate volume and gain for the guitar channel.The cherry on top is the built in drums with its own volume and tempo control.I play guitar and sing with the drums and I can balance the sound,and its portable. Comes with the AC adapter.Best the world!

  • Best Amp Ever, Ever!

    As reviewed by RICHARD on 11/17/2014

    I had a Vox Minie 3 and wanted something with just a little more power and ordered the Fender Passport 7 watt amp. After hooking my Korg Rythm 55B to it it wouldn't give me the volume that I needed, so I returned it and the salesman at the store talked me into an Acoustic 20 and that gave my drum machine the volume but the amp has an annoying hum so back to the store I went again. This time I went with the Vox Minie 5 and it did the trick. Gives me plenty of volume for my drum machine and gives me the option of a built in rhythm. So out of the three I realy am a fan of the Vox Minie 5. It handles a guitar mic and a rhythm machine and gives you plenty of volume. I would have no problem recommending this to a friend, as I'm sure they would be very happy with it.
