Vox amPlug Headphone Amplifier AC30

Introducing the Vox amPlug -- the headphone guitar amp that lets you enjoy serious guitar sound, fast. 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, amPlug delivers full-fledged amp sound.

Features:

- Plugs directly into your guitar -- a great-sounding headphone guitar amp that gives you serious sound fast.
- AC30 model emulates the top boost sound of a vintage VOX AC30.
- AUX in jack lets you jam along with your CD/MP3 player.
- 100% analog circuit faithfully simulates the response of the original amps.
- Up to 15 hours of battery life with two Alkaline AAA batteries.
- Quick and easy setup! Just connect amPlug to your guitar and enjoy serious sound.

With its completely analog design, great care was also taken with amPlug's gain circuitry. The "AC30" uses two natural-sounding gain stages to reproduce the distinctive AC30 tone. 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.

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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (21 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "These things are great!!"
Sound: An amazing sound from such a little gadget. Each different guitar will have it's own individual sound. A good, comfortable, pair of headphones will help. Feature: Volume, tone, and gain with a red pilot light so don't leave it on accidentally. Ease of Use: As it plugs into your guitar, you must be careful not to bump it on anything. Quality: It's a Vox product made in Japan. Ok by me. Value: A good value at $40. Manufacturer Support: No idea. The Wow Factor: Very practical. Useful for everyone I would think. Overall: I own the AC30, the Classic Rock, and the Bass Vox Amplugs. They are a marvelous invention. Each is different in sound. They are loud if you want them to be. Good earphones will give you even better sound. A good deal for the price, so buy more than one. Perfect for a non-disturbing practice session.
Style of Music: Rock & Roll

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "A Vox AC30 that fits in your coat pocket."
Sound: The name AC30 is the sounds you will get with the full size amp in this small but mighty headphone amp. You can turn the gain up and the volume down to get the crunch and sustain you want without making your ears bleed. Turn your guitar volume down and the sound cleans up nicely. Play around with the gain and volume on the headphone amp itself and with the guitar. The sounds you get with a single coil and or humbucking pick up will make you practice more without assualting anyone else's ears. You will have no excuse for not practicing and you cannot blame the sound of this little amp. It leaves you with no excuse. Feature: It comes with 2 AAA batteries that are needed for this amp. It has gain, tone and volume controls to help you milk out the sounds of a real AC30 that you long for. Plus it is small enough to fit in the compartment of a guitar case or gig bag. The only thing needed that it does not supply is the headphones. Cheap or expensive headphones will surprise you regardless of what you use, because the sound is built into the amp. Ease of Use: It is super easy to use and easy to modify the sounds your looking for in this mini headphone amp. The manual is clear because this product is fool proof. Quality: Take this anywhere in your case, gig bag or your coat pocket and you will have a practice amp with you at all times. With a little care this product will last. This may be made of plastic on the outside, with the "Vox" grille, there is not much to break. Value: For this price and the convience it will replace any of your mini/headphone amps because of the sound and portability. Manufacturer Support: Have not dealt with the support of the company. No need to yet. The Wow Factor: It has the"Vox" grille so you cannot mistake who makes this fine product. It is light and will not damage your guitar input jack. Overall: This is a mini-amp I can take anywhere and if something ever did happen to it, at it's price point it would be foolish to replace it with anything else. I have other mini/headphone amps and they may be permanently retired. I like the sounds this amp puts out. The only thing I dislike about this little amp, is that it was not put out before I bought other mini amps.

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today.
