I got this amp so I could play my electric in a group class made up mostly of acoustics. For that is works pretty well, and the clean sound is a little low but good. The distortion sound is not bad and a lot of fun for an amp this small.My complaints about the amp are I'm not sure the Tone control is doing anything, and I don't like the on/off switch. They should have just put the switch in the input jack, because if you unplug the guitar the amp stays on.It will give some decent sound to your electric guitar, and it's very portable, but if you are buying this to save money on a real amp keep saving.

Well, I'm done with low cost mini amps as I said. I had the Marshall and now the VG05 with the same result. New battery, played great the first couple times and then started cutting out. I thought I might have blown the Marshall out playing with a wah but I didn't use anything with the VG05 and the same thing happened. Spending more for the Vox Mini5 Rhythm and the Orange. We'll see.

    Comments about Rocktron Velocity Series VG05 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    I'm a semi pro musician and got this little rascal to use as a practice amp.
    It is way louder than I expected, and has a decent tone quality. If you are expecting a ton of effects or something "fancy" then keep looking. This is a simple little amp that is great for practice or sitting in a small laid back jam with acoustic instruments. I've only had it for a short time so not sure about the life span.
    Only reason i didn't give it a 5. it's just what i expected and wanted.

        Comments about Rocktron Velocity Series VG05 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

        This lil Amp is very good. It sounds pretty good for a amp its size.It has quite a bit of volume for its size. I got the volume set on 3 and its just as loud as my 15 watt amp. I would not recomend trying to play a live show with this amp but I do think it would be pretty good for a small jam session. with a couple of friends.

          I had difficulty finding the power supply for the amp. They should specify which one to get. I ended up ordering one that is completely incorrect but weighs so much that it would not pay to return it.

          ROCTRON VG05

          Comments about Rocktron Velocity Series VG05 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

          Fantastic portable amp - hard to believe the power at full volume - then kick in the distortion and it is wild, I had to lower the tone back some with the distortion on, but still fantastic. The clean tone was absolutely wonderful at all volumes and even the bass/treble pot worked great. This is a fantastic amp and for the price it is SUPER. Works great with headphones also. Also has a larger speaker, and more wattage, than Fender's mini, and it is a more compact unit overall. THIS IS THE ONE TO BUY. My only complaint (not enough to downgrade the rating) was the cheesy FAKE handle molded into the top of the case. OK, style over function and trying to make it look cool and you really don't need a handle on an item this small - SO WHY EVEN FAKE IT. Also why bother including that Chinese battery - replace it with a good battery immediately to be safe. Now when camping I can sit around the campfire and play an electric, how cool is that.

          good little practice amp

          Comments about Rocktron Velocity Series VG05 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

          I was looking into something portable for practice around the house. Looked into smokey mini amp, Roland cube ect ... This lil amp is pretty good 4 what it does. Has vol/tone/on, clean, OD .. sound is pretty decent for its size and it's 5watts so you can hear it well. With vol/tone all the way up u get a decent distortion. Plastic casing/knobs, mesh speaker cover, belt clip. Get an adapter and connect to your mp3, plenty loud for that. Good over all purchase.
