    The world's smallest full-featured guitar amp.

    The C Tech V2 Pocket Rockit Headphone Amplifier captures the tonal heritage of 50 years of guitar amp design. It combines analog and digital signal processing to reproduce classic tube amp tones. A proprietary DSP engine provides awesome digital effects such as reverb, delay, chorus, and flange, while an analog front end generates classic amp emulation tones.

    You don't even need a cable. Like all Pocket Rockit products, the V2 plugs directly into any guitar. Just plug it in, put on your headphones and you're ready to rock 'n' roll. You can even play along with your favorite CD. Best of all, the V2 sounds better than many full-blown amplifiers.

    The C Tech V2's amp emulation circuitry models vintage and current classics. The Clean amp button scrolls through 3 clean or slightly over-driven tones. The Dirty amp button scrolls through 3 gnarly, positively nasty high-gain selections. Sounds reminiscent of classic Fender, Marshall, Soldano and other amps are at your fingertips.

    This headphone amp has 2 independent DSP effect banks: a delay bank with straight delay, flange, and chorus: and a reverb bank that includes arena reverb, small-hall reverb, and an echo effect. Use any effect independently, or use one from each bank simultaneously.

    A digital tuner features audible low-E, A, D, G, B and high-E notes. Tri-colored LED indicates flat, sharp, or in tune. It's a perfect tool for improving your ear. A built-in click track/metronome has a naturally- sampled snare drum hit - there's no annoying buzz or tone. The Pocket Rockit's metronome has adjustable tempos between 60 -180 bpm provides a great way to work on your time.

    Features
    • Plugs directly into your guitar—no cables
    • Built-in tuner and metronome
    • 2 DSP effects engines provide reverb, delay, chorus, and flange effects (2 simultaneous)
    • Models of vintage and current amplifier classics
    • Analog front end

    Most importantly, the Pocket Rockit sounds killer! Order today and practice big.

    Overall a very good unit.
    Overall this is a quality unit. I was a little disappointed in the different tones. I had an earlier version of the Pocket Rockit and the crunch sounds were a little stronger on the older version.
    The voice prompts are nice and even though the tuner is a tone instead of a meter, the addition of a tuner is a welcome one.
    I recommend this unit highly because of the ease of use and the many features including the headphones and adapters which are included.
    Nice job!
    Good overall quality.
    Good value for the included features and accessories.

    One of the frustrations with this unit is it will turn itself off if it doesn't sense a signal within three minutes, I wrote to them and received the following suggestion from their tech support:

    "V2 unit has an auto shut off function to help preserve battery in case you forget to turn it off. What is likely happening in your case is that you have the volume level on your guitar turned down too low so that the V2 is not sensing a guitar signal and is shutting off. Solution is to always have your guitar volume set to MAX and control output volume in headphones with volume control on the V2."

    Bottom line is your guitar needs to produce enough signal to avoid this condition from occuring.

    A little thin for me!

    By James Stoll

    from California

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    No matter what I tried, I just couldn't get that real beefy tone that I like. Sounded really tinny and way too bright for my taste. Funny thing is, I loved the original Pocket Rockit, (The small black one). Also for $100.00 I think that it could be built a lot better than a piece of plastic w/3 screws holding it all together! If you dropped it, it would probably break! for the money, I would get a line 6 pocket POD. (way better!)
    Hope that V3 is better!

    Very Good

    By rockinreel

    from Savannah, GA

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    Used it a month and still have the previous model.It's the best little practice tool and no humming like the last model I had, unless I'm too close to the TV. My favorite activity is to play along with band backing tracks thru my computer into the device and jam with the "blues you can use" & "band in a pocket" book/cd. Some of these reviewers think it should sound like a $500 amp. Sounds fine to me on my Telecaster, especially with reverb3, delay3, and clean3 settings. Unit is not cheaply built, headphones are fine.

    Pocket Rockit V1 cuts out

    By Painter33

    from Delaware

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    I've had it for five weeks and used it sporadically until one night it just started cutting out. I just kept getting worse until now it's completeluy useless. The 9v battery barely fits and so the cover is difficult to open. It also came with a scratch on the battery cover but I didn't mind because that shouldn't hurt performance. Something has hurt performance to the point that it doesn't function. I'd return it except that I can't find the receipt....

    Close... but no cigar

    By JRyan0713

    from Flint, MI

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    I thought this was the perfect headphone amp I was looking. Having the tuner, the metronome, and the extra effects. But after purchasing I was quite disapointed. The tuner tuned WAY sharp. I also didn't like that you can only select certain speeds for the metronome, and the volume of the metronome was a too high for my liking. I didn't want to go deaf while practicing. The tone was great the though, for a headphone amp. I took it back and bought the V1 which I was again disappointed because of the battery not fitting issue and the line out jack was crackling. So I took the V1 back and bought the S1. The S1 was the best out of all 3 products and would suggest S1 especially for the price. The V2 is a little to good to be true. Though it comes close there is still a ways to go before it is an ideal product.

    Great for private practicing!

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    I'm a beginner, so daily practice on the basics is vital for me. I travel all over the world, so a small guitar/amp package is important.I use this amp with my Traveler Speedster, and it's nice to be able to practice on a plane, in a hotel room, or anywhere else I want to go.It has a nice selection of effects, and the click is great for picking up speed.The battery compartment cover seems a bit flaky, and the built in tuner tunes each note to the sharp. Since my Orange Micro-Crush has a proper built-in tuner, I simply use it, or the tuner on my laptop when I'm traveling.

    Nice package for the cost

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    I have used this pocket amp on my speedster for a few months and I love it. The features are great and give me plenty of varity on any guitar i plug it into while on the run. I would have rated higher on value if c-tech would have added rechargable battery and charger to this package. I would have paid the extra for it to.

    I love my pocket rockit

    By Mugsy

    from Brooklyn, NY

    Comments about C Tech Pocket Rockit V2 Guitar Headphone Amplifier:

    My wife is in med-school, studying all the time, so a regular amp isn't really an option for me to practice with. The rockit V2 saves the day. I can practice at 'full volume' and never bother her. The built in tuner, isn't super-accurate, but it does the job for cheap. The metronome is helpful for a beginner like me. And the effects are varied enough to keep my interest up. Where ever I take my axe, I take my rockit. You should get your own headphones though, the ones it comes with are pretty lame.
