Smaller than even a compact combo amp, mini amps vary in size somewhat, but most are able to fit on a nightstand or desktop. With reasonable wattage that will get you great tone without depriving neighbors and roommates of sleep, they're perfect for late-night practice sessions. Plus, many mini amps feature 1/4" or 1/8" headphone out jacks, providing a truly silent practice platform.
A mini guitar amp can provide a lot of versatility in a small footprint. Some of these diminutive combo amps feature simple solid-state circuits that have taken on a cult following of their own. Pignose amps, for example, have their own distinct tonality, earning the favor of players like Frank Zappa. Other mini amps by the industry leaders recreate the look of their famed full-size amps. Want to rock a Marshall stack that's 6" high? You can. How about a Fender Twin that weighs under 2 pounds? It exists!
With the dawn of modeling technology and the incorporation of mobile device apps in creating tones, guitar mini amps have gotten smarter and capable of doing more than ever before. And on-board effects like delay and chorus are only the tip of the iceberg. Modern mini amps can feature several models of entirely different amps that let you go from blues to metal tones with the turn of a dial. Miniature amps have gone from a tool for practicing and sketching out ideas, to full-featured amps that you can use to craft professional-sounding tones.
Some mini guitar amps will interface with your mobile device, syncing with your favorite modeling apps to provide you with nearly infinite tones. Other amps offer auxiliary inputs and/or Bluetooth connectivity, doubling as media speakers that can play or stream your favorite tunes. With the way compact speakers have developed through the years, these amps are sounding better and better with each new generation, whether they're being played by a guitarist or pumping out tunes at the party.
And with their compact form factors, mini guitar amps are the perfect travel companion. The majority of these amplifiers are battery-powered, and many are small enough to fit in your guitar gig bag, so there's no reason to be without solid tone, even when you're traveling light!
