Overview

The Vox amPlug 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. If 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, the Vox 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, 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.

Classic Rock gives you the great high-gain sound of a UK-made 100W amp, and uses four classical gain circuits to deliver that great sound.

Also available in AC30, that emulates the AC30 top boost sound of a vintage VOX AC30, and Metal, based on a California-made high-gain amplifier head.

  • Plugs directly into your guitar”a great-sounding headphone guitar amp that gives you serious sound fast.

  • 100% analog circuit faithfully simulates the response of the original amps.

I was looking for a headphone amp for bassists and found no luck in quality and sound. I spotted this little plastic Vox, and thought I might as well give it a try (I wanted a headphone amp, it was a headphone amp, it was made by a good company). I was surprised to how well it took the bass sound! I messed around with the Classic Rock and AC-30 models (I prefered the AC-30, but only because I'm into clean bass, not distortion) and found I had tons of control in my overall sound and response! The little sucker did it! I brought one home and tried it on all of my basses, and it held like a champ. I think this was a very smart buy for bass or guitar players, and if you read this far, go get one today and see for yourself!

For the price it's understandable that only so much sound quality can be expected. That said, I have high output pick ups and the overdrive was too much unless you dial it way back. Using the aux. line in to practice and learn songs for various gigs was the main reason I bought it. I happened to sit down and inadvertently put too much side pressure on the aux. cord. The tiny circuit board connections were broken leaving only the guitar sound available. Will still be useful for gig warm-up but not for the main purpose. It needs about $10 retail value built into it to reinforce the connection and make the housing stronger.

Vox Rocks!

By David

from Monroe NC

Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

Great little gadget for practice. I was really surprised by the sound this little guy produces. We plugged in a Fender Squire with a new set of strings, and we were very impressed. The output is really incredible. Working between the tone controls on the amp and your guitar you can produce some really cool sounds.

Great sound

By Mark

from Athens, GA

Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

This thing really kicked my butt as I was not expecting to have this kind of sound from such a small device. With the gain cranked and the volume at max you almost feel like you can get some feedback! There is not a wide range of tone but it's not an amp and it's perfect for practicing when you can't rattle the windows. For what it is and the price I would highly recommend it.

    Perfect practice amp if you live in an apartment, dorm, or have family that you want to bother. Classic rock version sounds great. Just wish that it was a bit louder. These ears are old.

      Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

      This thing is like having a portable amp attatched to your guitar without all the hassle. You can plug it in, feed in a jam track from your lap top, desk top, or cd/dvd player thru the aux port on it, plug in you head phones and hear yourself jam like you were on stage!

      Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

      I just bought my third Classic rock one, which is positive and negative. A great little device for playing when you have to be quiet. The 2 biggest drawbacks are the following. (1) In order to get much sound you have to turn up the gain which gives a lot of distortion so surprisingly only a small window for warm nondistorted sound considering there are other versions with more distortion. (2) It seems that after a while they start giving some static, although after putting them away they work ok again. Don't know why, but doesn't seem related to the strength of the battery. Finally, on a positive note, the VOX products seem to be the only ones of these plug in amps that permit both a headset and an mp3/computer input. This is useful for playing along with recorded songs.

        Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

        This is as advertised. Has plug in for guitar and input from computer/mp3 player. The only one available with both apparently. My only complaint is that it is not available with a clean sound. Even for the rock version, by the time you max out the volume and put the gain up enough to hear there is usually too much distortion for a cleaner sound. It's ok, but not like it should be. Yo would expect this from the heavy metal version.

        I think that this pretty amazing for what it is. It is very silent and sounds great. I play a lot of punk ranging from old punk to NOFX-style punk and it sounds great on this.

        Love my Vox Amplug!

        By Douglas Tingle

        from Providence, RI

        Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

        I'm a novice guitarist but long time music fan. I love being able to rock out on my front porch or late at night in my apartment and nobody can hear me. I play lots of Dylan and Neil Young and I think the Classic Rock Amplug sounds great! If you don't turn up the gain a bit it may not be loud enough for some people, but with gain at about 3 or higher it gets plenty loud. Sound quality is quite good but there is some background noise which can usually be kept to a not noticeable minimum by fiddling with the gain and tone controls. For the Strat players out there it fits quite fine on my American Standard. All in all, I love my Vox Classic Rock Amplug!
