Superior Modeling Technology

From the versatile JamVOX to the acclaimed Valve Reactor and Valvetronix series amplifiers, VOX has earned a reputation for premium modeling technology. The MINI3 is no exception, delivering 11 accurate and authentic amp models covering a broad range of styles and playing techniques. Starting with the coveted VOX British tone, the MINI3 also offers the sounds of classic historic amps, today's intense hi-gain amps, and hard to obtain rare "boutique" amplifiers.

Clean Model Accommodates Nearly any Instrument

A pure, non-distorting clean model is included in the eleven amp types. This allows nearly any acoustic instrument fitted with a pickup or an acoustic-electric guitar to be connected to the MINI3, providing a rich and satisfying tone without losing any of your instrument's acoustic resonances or nuances. This setting is also ideal for use with a keyboard or workstation, allowing the MINI3 to function as a portable PA system as well as a guitar amp.

Easy-to-Operate Effects

The MINI3 provides both effects and reverb/delay for putting the final touches on your sound. The effects section offers a compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo. Two reverbs and two delays are also available. Each effect is easily editable for creating your own signature sound. Dedicated knobs integrate effect selection and parameter adjustment, ensuring intuitive control - even for a beginner. Tap tempo control makes setting the delay time to match the music a snap.

Ultra-Portable Freedom and Mobility

As its name suggests, the MINI3 is ultra-compact. Your MINI3 includes a convenient, detachable shoulder-type carry strap for transporting your MINI3 with ease. It weighs a mere 3.5 kg, so you won't get tired of carrying it around. In addition from getting from point A to point B, the MINI3 can be played at any point along the way. Six AA alkaline batteries can provide up to 30 hours of on-the-go power - ideal for outdoor use and street performances. An AC adapter is included for playing while connected to an outlet.

Versatile Connections to Serve the Singer/Performer

In addition to the main guitar input, the MINI3 provides a separate mic input, complete with its own volume knob and control of the reverb/delay amount. This dynamic addition offers you detailed control of your overall sound. Plus, they have also included a convenient AUX input jack for connecting an MP3 player or other audio source. Jam along to your favorite tunes, practice those tricky licks, or play along with pre-recorded backing tracks for a full-fledged performance - all by yourself.

Traditional VOX Design

Sound quality goes without saying, but VOX's inimitable sense of design is another real attraction of this amp. The MINI3 carries on VOX trademarks such as diamond grill cloth and textured vinyl cladding, making it a tasteful addition to any room. In addition to the proven and popular black, the MINI3 is also available in a vintage-vibe ivory or British racing green.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (17 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good things do come in small packages!"
Sound: I bought this small amp not expecting alot from it. It is portable after all. However, I was very surprised by the sounds I have gotten from it. No, I am not saying expect thundering bass from it.You should not expect that from ANY small amp. Expect to be surprised though. This small amp has alot of warmth in it. One last thing, this is certainly loud enough for bedroom practice. Feature: This amp has everything you could possibly want from a small portable practice amp. There is no other small amp on the planet that has all the features this one does. Period! Ease of Use: You only have to turn knobs.I could not be any easier. There seems to be only one hidden feature.You have to hold down a button to access the tuner.Everything else is just turn a knob. Even a child could use this amp. Quality: It seems very well made. Nothing loose and nothing vibrates when the volume is turned up. Value: I was reluctant to pay as much as I did for such a small amp but the features it had made me decide to give it a try. I am glad I did. The features combined with the great sound of this little amp make me feel as if I got more than I paid for. That is always a great value. Manufacturer Support: I have never heard of bad service in regards to Vox, nor have I had to use it either. The Wow Factor: I got the white model. With the black of the knobs,panels,legs, and strap I believe it looks nearly as good as it sounds. It looks classy and sexy! lol! Overall: If you are looking for a portable amp or just a small bedroom practice amp this amp has some really nice sound in a very small package. The amps, features, and build of this item make it hard to beat.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Good things come in small packages !"
Overall: Fine sounding little amp with flexibility and ease of use. I was looking for a small practice amp with built in effects, so I can just plug in and play, without having to deal with extra pedals. The Vox Mini has a good assortment of amp models, dial in gain for crunch, one knob for chorus / flanger type sounds and another knob for reverb/echo. The sound for this size amp is fine, sounds good clean or with the gain up for OD. The effects are easy to select and there is control for the amount of effect, all from the selector knob. The built in tuner is geared only for the "E" note across multiple octaves. Chromatic would have been nice, but I've been tuning by harmonics with a single reference note for ages so that wasn't a deal breaker. Now I think this a great value at the regular price. I did even better by getting a BLEM deal. After close inspection, the only blemished area I could find was the packaging, the amp was perfect. And zZounds got this to me in 2 days from my order with free shipping can't beat that. I'm totally pleased with this purchase.
Style of Music: Roots music - R&B, R&R, mixed with some funk, jazz, country
