Overview

The Vox amPlug Metal is a headphone amp that can help you to create the perfect practice session. The tiny amPlug plugs directly into your guitar--then just plug in your headphones and relish some great Vox tone.

Jamming late at night? Don't want to wake the neighbors? Maybe you want to work out a lick with your MP3 player without taking the time to set up your amp. You want to play guitar right now. amPlug is the answer. Simply plug this palm-sized headphone guitar amp directly into your guitar, and enjoy serious guitar sound anywhere, anytime.

Even with its ultra-compact size, amPlug perfectly reproduces the complex and warm distortion that is distinctive of a vacuum tube, as well as the powerful high gain produced by a large amp stack. Using analog modeling technology, the Vox amPlug delivers full-fledged amp sound.

Even the circuit response of the original amp is simulated completely. The simulation extends not only to the response of the tone circuits, but also to the way in which the high frequency and gain are affected when you turn down the volume control of the guitar. Every detail has been faithfully reproduced.

amPlug can be used in numerous ways. With up to fifteen hours of battery life, it's easy to take amPlug anywhere. In addition to practicing at home, it's a great way to warm up before a live performance or on the road. And amPlug is not just a convenient way to get great guitar sound. There's also an AUX input jack so you can jam along with your CD/MP3 player.

Metal delivers the explosive roar of US high-gain metal sound, and uses two stages of ultra-high gain plus a mid-cut circuit, giving you modern metal high-gain sound anywhere and anytime.

Also available in AC30, that emulates the AC30 top boost sound of a vintage VOX AC30, and Classic Rock, which gives you the great high-gain sound of a UK-made 100W amp.

FEATURES

  • Plugs directly into your guitar”a great-sounding headphone guitar amp that gives you serious sound fast.
  • AUX in jack lets you jam along with your CD/MP3 player.
  • 100% analog circuit faithfully simulates the response of the original amps.

I have been looking for years now a product that would allow me to quietly play my guitar and not need to carry around a large multi effects petal in my pocket. If you too have been looking..look no further! This amPlug not only sounds good but you can also play your music thru it! I have tried other portable amps, but this sounds the best. I will grab the Classic in the near future so that I can change between my two favorite sounds! thank's Vox, it about time someone did this!

It's ok. I mean, the thing works. My problem is that the sound I get out if it is very harsh. It is not warm as advertised. With the tone knob (which doesn't do a whole lot) turned down to 3 or 4 I can get some warm tones but its very heavy on the treble side. But its compact design is great for portability, and it's gone a full year without having to change batteries. One wish is that with the distortion knob backed all the way down, one could get a nice clean tone. Instead it's a gritty tone with lots of bite (which can be good in some cases, but I'm thinking in terms of maximum versatility).

Amazing...!!

By Rafael

from Sylmar, CA

Last week, My dad told me to buy a quiet amp, so I bought this. This is my first time buying this type of amp. I expected it to suck but, after using it, THIS THING WAS AMAZING!!. With the included distortion, you can play almost every heavy metal song. You can also change the level of the volume, the tone, and the gain. If this is your first time buying the VOX Amplug Metal, I totally recommend it. There are two thing you should know before buying. 1. Make sure you have a GREAT set of headphones. They will improve the sound by A LOT!. 2. This is only for practicing heavy metal or other kinds of 'heavy' music. The distortion is "built in" and cannot be taken off. If you want a 'cleaner' sound, you should buy a different style of the amp. There are 5 in total.

Technological Bliss!!!

By Matt

from San Antonio

Have you ever wanted to jamout but couldn't because your afraid of waiking some one? Well this is the best way to do just that and then some. The sound is phenomenal from such a small divice i couldn't belive my ears. A divice that offers a monster tube amp sound, and a Aux port so that you can play with the bands that are on your Mp3 player. Why hasn't anyone thought of this before?

Simply Amazing

By Me

from Killeen, Texas

I am a soldier currently deployed to Iraq and was needing something to help me jam. Hard to find time when there isn't somebody sleeping and the voltage difference makes dragging out and hooking up a pedal combersome. I saw this online and figured why not, the price is right and I'll give it a try, can't be too bad. I had it shipped to me out here and my first surprise it that it comes packages with a set of batteries included. I put the batteries in, plugged it into my guitar, hooked up the headphones and fell in love with the tone! It doesnt have any frills (like chorus or flanger etc.) but it does have a heavy distorted tone that rocks. And with the adjustable gain you can get a slight dirty to a all out shred!. If you need to practice quietly, this is the product to get.

Your Noise Only

By Adam Williams

from Mckinney, Texas

i love this thing, i get all my best ideas at night when everyone else is asleep, and full metal distortion can get a little loud sometimes... get this though, this thing is so portable it fits in your pocket, you can attach a pick holder to the back of it with some hot glue or something, and if you DO want to share your noise, dont buy one of those mini 150$ amps that have all those troublesome cables, get this and one of those mini ipod speakers and boom, you're ready for ANY trip

Best practice tool ever.

By Erwin E.

from Paramount, ca

I have invested a lot of money in practice amps that don't give the right amount of punch. But this, along with the AUX input, gives you the exact amount of distortion, with all the highs and lows. Just amazing.

AWESOME!!

By Theran Martin

from Germany

Man this is the ticket if you want some rockin sounds and want to be quiet! Its no Marshall Stack, but for what it is and its purpose it will blow you away! I have even run it through some external speakers I have and it still sounds good. So if you want to hear the sound of you rocking, be portable, and best of all be quiet. This is a must have! I will probably try the AC30 or Classic Rock next for a variety of sounds.

Little Package, Big Sound!

By Nick Blum

from Pittsburgh, PA

I got the Vox AmPlug right when my dad was getting mad at me for cranking up my amp on 10 at ten o'clock at night. This headphone amp beats all amps. Sounds exactly like a real amp. Even better than my 15 watt fender amp. The AmPlug has a nice sound no matter what setting you have it on. You get a nice clear metal sound with the gain and tone on high. You can get even a classic rock sound for Led Zepplin material with the gain on zero. The gain, tone, and volume knobs actually works. If you're a musician on the go, you don't have to carry a heavy amp anymore, this amp fits in your pocket. Plug it in, crank it up, rock it out!

NOT as GREAT as the LEAD

By Charles

from Clarksburg, MD

Now I didn�ۡ���t read any of the other reviews before buying this thing, and I�ۡ���m sure they said good things since this item has gotten 5 stars, but I am really disappointed. I had ordered this item and had been waiting for it through the mail. In the meantime I bought the Lead VOX AmPlug (Much Better). I was hoping that the Metal AmPlug would had given off a much more thicker, chunkier sound, but to me the sound is bright. I prefer the Lead AmPlug much better. It sound thicker and has a delay effect as well.

Sounds great.

By IceDevil

from AZ

I wanted something that would let me sneak out to the living room at night to play my guitar without waking the family, but i didn't want to have to shuffle all of my large equipment around. This was the perfect solution. With the adjustment dials this headphone amp can be tuned to whatever your perticular brand of hard rock or heavy metal is. It sounds absolutly great. I play pretty much only hard rock and usually use a line 6 POD X3 effects processor to get the great sounds i am looking for. But for a night time jam this thing comes more then close enough for me. I love it, the input jack is nice too, for those of you who like to play along with your mp3 player etc.

Perfect for practice!!

By Raven

from Eastern Ky

This little thing is great. It has tons of sustain and is easy to get a great sound out of it. The only down fall is when the gain is all the way down it still give a slight dirty clean sound. No biggie though cause I got this thing to keep warmed up. Just wish is had reverb.

WOW

By Andy

from Tampa, FL

This little guy is awesome. Someone had mentioned it one day and said it was really great and it did sound like it would be pretty cool so I bought one (metal) and plugged it into my acoustic guitar since that's all I have with me right now and WOW!!! This is by far the best thing I've ever bought for a guitar! If you are on the fringe, don't be. Get one and you will see just how awesome this little plug in is! I highly reccomend!!

Works with a recessed input jack!

By AdamD

from San Francisco, CA

The main thing I was worried about with this product was whether or not it was going to work with the jack on my crummy strat copy I keep at my desk at work. It totally does work with it though, and I've been really happy with it. It sounds decently enough like my MESA triple rec, enough that I can sit outside on my lunch break and work on riffs without being annoyed by the tone. You won't be able to roll off the gain enough to get a really clean tone, but if you're looking for something that covers the range between the Smoking Popes and Converge, this'll do!

Just plain awesome

By Jeff

from Vancouver, Wa

I just picked up the metal Amplug and I already love this thing! It sounds very similar to the amp model I use on my Vox AD50VT XL. Now I can take my guitar and my sound with me wherever I go. Another great product from Vox.

AWESOME!

By Brandon

from Staten Island, New York

I read the reviews on here and they all said 5 stars. so i figured i'd give it a shot, i dont really have a good amp so this really helped out. i really enjoy the sound i get from it. i am able to play all my favorite songs on it, and i would gladly buy a second one if i had to. it's really helped me with guitar because i can walk around my house and practice, go sit out in my backyard and practice, go to the park, go anywhere and not have to lug a heavy amp around with me. its perfect for on the go playing and late night playing. Glad this was finally made.

VERY PLEASED!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FOR SILENT QUALITY PRACTICE!

By Devin

from Seattle, WA

I was skeptical until I watched some videos on youtube that people had posted. I was surprised with the sound quality, very nice! Alot of flexibility to suit your individual preference of distortion with it's tone, gain, and volume knob. This little amplug delivers! I love it! It has an input jack for your headphones and another aux input to connect your ipod/mp3 player to jam to your favorite songs. This would make an excellent practice tool if you are playing cover songs or practicing silently to your own recorded originals. Personally I think this is better than buying a practice amp. It is small enough to stick into your gig bag or case. It runs off of (2) AAA batteries that are included!!! nice! Another reason this amplug is great is the fact that it does not need a guitar cable. it just sticks in to your input jack and stays in there. Bottom line I love it! I recommend you buy one, and if your not sure, look at the reviews! and watch this in action online

Very Cool Tool!!

By Joe

from Rochester, NY

I am traveling a lot, so with all that hotel time I thought I would learn Guitar. I bought a little electric Travel Guitar and this amp. Amazing..! I can play loud with good tone, and practice into the whee hours of the morning without disturbing neighbors with my crude skills. The Aux input helps me play to the songs I'm trying to learn with my tabs & iPod.. That has really helped me learn more quickly, I think. I love it.. Get a good set of headphones with a long chord and you won't be disappointed (battery life isn't bad - but keep spares handy)!
