Product Description

Introducing the 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.

It's even available in three different sound styles: VOX AC30, Classic Rock, based on a UK-made amplifier head, and Metal, based on a California-made high-gain amplifier head. 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 all new 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.
- Available in three styles: VOX AC30, Classic Rock, and Metal.
- AUX in jack lets you jam along with your CD/MP3 player.
- 100% analog circuit faithfully simulates the response of the original amps.
- AC30 emulates the AC30 top boost sound of a vintage VOX AC30.
- Classic Rock gives you the great high-gain sound of a UK-made 100W amp.
- Metal delivers the explosive roar of US high-gain metal sound.
- 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. "Metal" uses two stages of ultra-high gain plus a mid-cut circuit, giving you modern metal high-gain sound anywhere and anytime. 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.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (9 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. Vox amPlug APMT Metal Customer Review
Sound: On Point with metal sound. Can throw some serious Pinch Harmonics on this headphone amp. has 3 knob controls: Gain, Tone, Volume. By Putting the Gain to 1 or 2 you can get some decent clean out the headphone amp. putting it on 10 is some serious metallica,Killswitch Engage sounds. Feature: for being so small, It does have an Auxillary input. I plugged in my ipod and played some Metallica Master of Puppets to compare sound. and I was Impressed. A Nice feature for jamming along to your favorite tunes. the 3 knobs for gain,tone,volume allow some nice flexibility and shaping. Ease of Use: plug it in and jam. Simple Quality: It is lightweight and plastic so it does not fall out of your guitar input. knobs are plastic but if you take care of your stuff you should be fine. Value: for the price, its well worth it for what it does. Great for jamming late night and or going on vacation and keeping up on your licks. Manufacturer Support: no experience. The Wow Factor: looks cool, sounds cool, is cool. Overall: I tested this on my esp EC-1000, and my fender strat. I like how the device fits in either guitar, The device fits awesome in a strat guitar giving you easy access while jaming to change the tone and gain on the fly.
Style of Music: Rock, Metal

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
