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. Simply plug the VOX AC30 palm-sized headphone guitar amplifier directly into your guitar, and enjoy serious guitar sound anywhere, anytime.
The amPlug series received wide-ranging acclaim from guitarists around the world for delivering incredible guitar tone in a pocket-sized unit. Now, the existing range is joined by two new units.
"Lead" is based on a US-made high-gain boutique amp, further modified for lead guitar. It also contains a digital delay effect, delivering a huge, spatial sound that could not be previously obtained, and giving you a rich and full-fledged lead sound that you can play anytime and anywhere. For the bassist,
"Bass" is modeled on VOX's classic AC100 bass amp, and expands its potential with a full-range tone that supports today's bass sounds. A compressor/boost effect provides not just compression but also a thick overdrive sound, giving you the perfect tones for performing in any style. Careful attention has been paid to the sound quality, and a high-quality FET buffer circuit has been used to obtain even greater dynamic range.
The oringial models are still 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.
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. "Classic Rock" uses four classical gain circuits to deliver that great sound. "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.
The VOX AC30 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.

My wife got me this as a bit of a stocking filler at Christmas. I opened it and wasn't expecting much.
I was pleasantly surprised when I started playing through it. I used my DT770 Headphones and got a great sound from it.
Adjusting the dials led to a variety of sounds, which was a big surprise. I can go from nice cleans up to high gain crunch, all without leaving the sofa!
Needless to say, if the wife puts on a bit of Peter Andre on the telly I reach for my Epiphone SG and Amplug and just drift away to paradise!
Going to get the Metal one next to pair it with my B.C Rich.
Ideal when your missus has got a headache

A fantastic product, sound quality is excellent and can play loud. Gain works well so this amp is very versatile. Considering buying the classic rock as well.
