At first I was set on buying the Pocketrockit v2, but then I saw this. I bought this without doing much research, but when I recieved it yesterday it was one of the best accessories I have ever bought. All the effects are great and its nice to be able to have them clipped to your belt. Definately buy this because it is easy to hook up to speakers during the day for regular amplification, while at night using it with headphones doesn't wake anyone in my house but I still hear what I'm playing with the effects. overall a great buy for a beginner or guitar veteran.

I'm not impressed with this unit. The only useful effects are the Delay and Reverb. Everything else is either useless, or in the case of the Chorus, goes from too little to too much. The distortion is muddy. It starts out good then I don't know what happens. So most of the time is spent fine tuning to get a decent sound. There is a built in Noise Gate and Compressor which can't be turned off. So the sustain of the guitar is killed especially on string bends. I guess if you want portability you can't get everything.

I bought this inexpensive device to give my Kustom Pro 50 some effects and I must say it sounds aw-some! I'm actually thinking of buying another one for miking it through another channel. I haven't used it yet through headphone but I'm sure I won't be disappointed when I do!

    Great effects. Great sound. Has a serious intermittent on/off problem. I have had 4 of these in 10 months because of poor quality (I suspect some bad solder joints inside the unit). Thankfully, Waves stands behind their product because they replaced all 4 under warranty. If they could get their quality problems fixed they would have a real winner with this product.

    Have to be realistic about what you've got here...

    By Peter Bohte

    from Lake Havasu City AZ.

    Comments about Waves iGTR Modeling Guitar Headphone Amp:

    My IGTR mini amp is a really cool tool, it is not a replacement for the real deal amp, boxes and pedals. That said for the $ is totally cool. I've set up experianced player and kids just starting out with this and all have had a good experiance. You can easily overdrive the unit and it sounds like, well, terrible or you can keep it within the bounds that it functions and it is just friggin great. The dual earpiece outlet is great for teaching how to use the wah wah, reverb and so on. The cable to any new small stereo is awesome for a young beginer who wants to share it for a small group. The best thing is you can go anywhere and find that place your at peace playing in and do it. Try that with an amp, equipment etc. etc., You can't do it. I took this out on the lake, with a cassette adaptor to play mp3s or a cd player and we had a blast. Bring extra batteries or a cig lighter to aux power input and there's no end to the enjoyment you can share. Beach Boys songs till we were just toasted out tired. Great value, but be gentle, don't ask for the whole world out this and you'll be real happy with it. ENJOY LIFE!!

      Comments about Waves iGTR Modeling Guitar Headphone Amp:

      Great idea,Great price,poor engineering..!! It needs a compressor built in before it hits the pre-amp or before the effects... if you have hot pickups... the two I purchased, shut off as soon as I would play a loud hard passage.. I could put up with the bright cheesy sounding distortion... I loved the auto wah.! The phase shifter was excellent..! I loved the price, but if something is not engineered correctly .... and it shuts it's self off.... well why wast the money..! To bad I would love to have one that worked.. I own a school of music and if it worked correctly I could have had every student purchase one .. Their parents,,, would have loved it.. jeff..

      good product for the price

      By David Ziffer

      from Hopkins, MN

      Comments about Waves iGTR Modeling Guitar Headphone Amp:

      Fine product worth the money (so far - I've had it only 2 weeks). I use it to practice on a noisy city bus with my Traveler Escape during my commutes. No, iGTR is not a full-featured palm-sized multi-efx box - for that you'll need to get into the $100 range and get something like a Korg Pandora. I almost returned my unit because I didn't realize it has a volume knob (on the side) so be sure to turn this up. iGTR is VERY sensitive on input so if you have an "active" pickup you'll need to turn the guitar volume WAY down. iGTR is plenty loud but if you're in heavy noise like I am you'll need full padded headphones, not earbuds or open-airs. The EFX are tolerably good for practice. You can't use them in every desired combo (for example delay + reverb) because they are ganged on the 3 knobs, but hey it's just practice. Battery life is fine, so I don't know what complainers are talking about. Get two 4-packs of Rayovac Platinum AAA rechargeables and a charger, and after that your batteries for this thing are effectively free. I've put several hours on my first charged set so far, no problem.
