Overview

Vox introduces the MINI3 G2, the next-generation model of the MINI3, the definitive portable modeling amplifier. It is a great practice amp and you might be amazed at how good it is in the studio as well. It features VOX's original Bassilator circuit for dramatically enhanced tone.

Featuring sophisticated looks, compact construction, battery power, and modeling technology inherited from the Valvetronix series of amps, the MINI3 is the definitive portable modeling amp. We now present to you the next generation of this portable rocker, the MINI3 G2! VOX's new Bassilator circuit delivers a powerful tone with solid bass frequencies that can be heard even at low volumes. The onboard effects have also been improved, offering added realism to an already great design. With the incredibly portable MINI3 G2, you'll be well equipped whether you're at home or on the go.

11 Realistic amp models
The MINI3 G2 delivers 11 accurate and authentic amp models which allow you to play a broad range of styles and genres. Starting with the coveted British VOX tone, the MINI3 G2 also nails sounds from classic vintage, modern high-gain, and rare boutique amps. The acclaimedmodeling technology inherited from the Valvetronix series of amps allows the MINI3 G2 to reproduce the rich, warm sounds associated with tube amps.

The Bassilator Circuit
The newly designed VOX Bassilator circuit enables the amp to produce ultra-low frequencies, well past what the EQ is capable of. This is especially effective on high-gain models where it gives the amp a full, deep sound that's great for heavier styles of music. In other words, you'll get a big sound in a small package!

Not just for electric guitar
The "LINE" model gives you a pristine clean tone that's ideal for use with an acoustic-electric guitar. The natural resonance of your acoustic instrument will shine through for those times when you need some extra sonic support. Additionally, the ability to use line connections from a keyboard or Mp3 player makes the MINI3 G2 a great portable PA system as well.

Easy-to-use effects
The MINI3 G2's great sounding effects will help put the final touches on your tone. This second generation MINI3 features even better sounding effects than the first. The effects section offers a compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo. There is also a dedicated section for reverb and delay where you can add that extra touch to create your own signature sound.

Even beginners will find editing effects easy - a turn of the knob lets you control which effect to use and how much of it you hear. The tap tempo button makes syncing the delay time to the tempo a breeze!

Ultra-portable freedom and mobility
As its name suggests, the MINI3 G2 is very compact and easy to take with you wherever you go. Use the included detachable strap to carry the amp by hand, or connect a guitar strap for over-the-shoulder convenience when your hands are full. The amp weighs a mere 6.61 pounds (3 kg), so you won't get tired carrying it around town. You can even stop for a practice session or performance on the way! Six AA alkaline batteries provide up to 10 hours of on-the-go power, making it ideal for outdoor use and street performances. Also included is an AC adapter for connecting to a power outlet.
Versatile connections for the singer/performer
In addition to the main guitar input, the MINI3 G2 has a separate mic input, complete with its own volume control and reverb/delay send. Plus, we've included a convenient AUX input jack so you can connect your MP3 player or other audio source. Jam along to your favorite tunes, practice those tricky licks, or play with pre-recorded backing tracks for a full-fledged performance - all by yourself!

Continuing the VOX design tradition
Sound quality goes without saying, but VOX's inimitable sense of design is another real attraction of this amp. The MINI3 carries on VOX trademarks such as diamond grille cloth and textured vinyl cladding, making it a tasteful addition to any room. In addition to our proven and popular black, the MINI3 is also available in a vintage-flavored ivory or the classic VOX look with brown diamond grille cloth.

I bought this amp to take with me out on the road driving truck. I was getting tired of just using my acoustic guitar while i was out, and was craving the electrics. I was in guitar center in South Bend IN, and told them my delema. They showed me this little Vox battery powered amp and I told them that it would have to be loud enough to hear over an idling diesel engine. I was amazed at the power that it had!!! I love the effects that is has also!! The AC adapter works good with my 300 watt inverter as well. I have had this amp a month now and it has been all over the US and is rugged enough to ride on all the bumpy roads. Very happy with it!!!

I bought this to use on vacation. Played it for 1/2 hr. the first time and was quite impressed with the sound quality and sounds that I could produce. Turned it on a week later, played for about 45 secs, and it went silent. power light is still on. I leave for vacation in 5 days, with no way to play. I am incredibly disappointed. It's quite sad that it seems no matter what you buy, it's all junk.

    Comments about Vox 3W Battery-Powered Modeling Amp:

    I was in the store and heard someone trying out an amp and was seriously impressed by the sound it was putting out, It was only then that I saw that he was playing through this teeny tiny little box. I was not in buying mode at the time, but when this showed up as a used item at a local GC, I scarfed it up.

    Let me point out what you did not hear me say. I did not say, "good for what it is." My little buddy does not just sound good for what it is, It sounds good, period, end of sentence.

      Comments about Vox 3W Battery-Powered Modeling Amp:

      My wife and I play at our church and both use my Vox 3w. Earlier this year we had a power outage and as I was using my Vox, I could continue to play my guitar with the battery. My wife couldn't so she decided that she wanted one for Christmas. Hopefully she will be surprised.

      Comments about Vox 3W Battery-Powered Modeling Amp:

      This is the best amp i ever played thru; don't use it for the Tele or the Les Paul ( have to change the settings too much) but my Blueridge 70 with the L.R. Baggs anthem tru-mic acoustic pickup installed sounds absolutely fabulous! Hard to believe it's only 3 watts - all kinds of power and just the sound I'm looking for - very natural, clean sound and brighter - just louder, balanced tone and so light and portable - will be taking it when we travel!!I Now wonder why i own big powerful amps!

      Simply awesome!
      Interesting built-in tuner- Tunes to E only on any string. Little different, but works well once you get the hang of it.
      The value of this is high for street performance and apt practice.
      Also comes with wall connecter for power. Lots of the battery models don't come with them.
      Hard to believe this little modeling amp does so much on 6 AA batteries!

        The perfect dial in any sound, practice amp. Very loud for 3 watts.
        Can more than fill a living room or bedroom. Sounds great, looks cool. Definitely recommend for a second amp.

          Comments about Vox 3W Battery-Powered Modeling Amp:

          I wanted a portable amp so I could accompany acoustic players using my Strat in an unplugged setting. I had a Pignose 7100, which gave me that capability but was limited to clean or overdriven. The Pignose died the day after I bought it, so I returned it and tried other portables. The Vox Mini G3 2 is an exceptional amp. It sounds as good as my Line 6 solid-state amps, has enough power to keep up with an unplugged band, quiet enough for fire-pit jams and living room jams, and has great tone quality. There are many amp models to choose from, three modulation (chorus, flange, tremolo), two delay, two reverb, gain, one tone, and volume. It's a tiny, pro-quality amp that sounds as good as my Line 6 solid-state Spider IV amps. It was more than I'd hoped for in a portable amp. You can run it on 6 AA batteries or a 12v DC adapter. I haven't used it for long yet with the batteries so I can't comment on battery life, and I don't know how reliable it will be long-term, but a close friend and band mate has had several Vox amps and has never had trouble. It's LOUD if you want it to be and doesn't break up. Since I play guitars with mostly single-coils, I wasn't concerned about warmth, but the amp has a fair amount. I have an LTD MH-250 with Seymours and a push-pull coil tap, and the humbuckers sounded really nice.

                I bought this with the white black grill and I couldn't be happier. I bought it for two soul purposes:
                1. Practicing with my band; and it works perfectly. Our drummer can still hear me and it's far from over powering any other instrument. The compact size allows me to put it in my backpack and set up and tear down is so quick now.

                2. The other reason I wanted this was for practicing in my dorm at school. The headphone output is fantastic because you can hear all the effects and amp models just like playing open. Its fantastic for practicing in areas where you can't get to loud.
