OVERVIEW

Battery-powered practice amp with satisfying sound.

Vox introduces the MINI3 G2, the next-generation model of the MINI3, the definitive portable modeling amplifier. It is a great practice amp and you might be amazed at how good it is in the studio as well. It features VOX's original Bassilator circuit for dramatically enhanced tone.

Featuring sophisticated looks, compact construction, battery power, and modeling technology inherited from the Valvetronix series of amps, the MINI3 is the definitive portable modeling amp. We now present to you the next generation of this portable rocker, the MINI3 G2! VOX's new Bassilator circuit delivers a powerful tone with solid bass frequencies that can be heard even at low volumes. The onboard effects have also been improved, offering added realism to an already great design. With the incredibly portable MINI3 G2, you'll be well equipped whether you're at home or on the go.

11 Realistic amp models
The MINI3 G2 delivers 11 accurate and authentic amp models which allow you to play a broad range of styles and genres. Starting with the coveted British VOX tone, the MINI3 G2 also nails sounds from classic vintage, modern high-gain, and rare boutique amps. The acclaimedmodeling technology inherited from the Valvetronix series of amps allows the MINI3 G2 to reproduce the rich, warm sounds associated with tube amps.

The Bassilator Circuit
The newly designed VOX Bassilator circuit enables the amp to produce ultra-low frequencies, well past what the EQ is capable of. This is especially effective on high-gain models where it gives the amp a full, deep sound that's great for heavier styles of music. In other words, you'll get a big sound in a small package!

Not just for electric guitar
The "LINE" model gives you a pristine clean tone that's ideal for use with an acoustic-electric guitar. The natural resonance of your acoustic instrument will shine through for those times when you need some extra sonic support. Additionally, the ability to use line connections from a keyboard or Mp3 player makes the MINI3 G2 a great portable PA system as well.

Easy-to-use effects
The MINI3 G2's great sounding effects will help put the final touches on your tone. This second generation MINI3 features even better sounding effects than the first. The effects section offers a compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo. There is also a dedicated section for reverb and delay where you can add that extra touch to create your own signature sound.

Even beginners will find editing effects easy - a turn of the knob lets you control which effect to use and how much of it you hear. The tap tempo button makes syncing the delay time to the tempo a breeze!

Ultra-portable freedom and mobility
As its name suggests, the MINI3 G2 is very compact and easy to take with you wherever you go. Use the included detachable strap to carry the amp by hand, or connect a guitar strap for over-the-shoulder convenience when your hands are full. The amp weighs a mere 6.61 pounds (3 kg), so you won't get tired carrying it around town. You can even stop for a practice session or performance on the way! Six AA alkaline batteries provide up to 10 hours of on-the-go power, making it ideal for outdoor use and street performances. Also included is an AC adapter for connecting to a power outlet.
Versatile connections for the singer/performer
In addition to the main guitar input, the MINI3 G2 has a separate mic input, complete with its own volume control and reverb/delay send. Plus, we've included a convenient AUX input jack so you can connect your MP3 player or other audio source. Jam along to your favorite tunes, practice those tricky licks, or play with pre-recorded backing tracks for a full-fledged performance - all by yourself!

Continuing the VOX design tradition
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 grille cloth and textured vinyl cladding, making it a tasteful addition to any room. In addition to our proven and popular black, the MINI3 is also available in a vintage-flavored ivory or the classic VOX look with brown diamond grille cloth.

I bought this to use on vacation. Played it for 1/2 hr. the first time and was quite impressed with the sound quality and sounds that I could produce. Turned it on a week later, played for about 45 secs, and it went silent. power light is still on. I leave for vacation in 5 days, with no way to play. I am incredibly disappointed. It's quite sad that it seems no matter what you buy, it's all junk.

        You can't expect this little amp to sound like a Marshall but for what it is, it's great. Haven't used it long enough on battery power alone to gauge the battery life but works good and feels pretty solid. Good so far.

          Comments about Vox 3W Battery-Powered Modeling Amp:

          I bought this with the white black grill and I couldn't be happier. I bought it for two soul purposes:
          1. Practicing with my band; and it works perfectly. Our drummer can still hear me and it's far from over powering any other instrument. The compact size allows me to put it in my backpack and set up and tear down is so quick now.

          2. The other reason I wanted this was for practicing in my dorm at school. The headphone output is fantastic because you can hear all the effects and amp models just like playing open. Its fantastic for practicing in areas where you can't get to loud.

              Comments about Vox 3W Battery-Powered Modeling Amp:

              This amp is a cool product that gets a lot of rave reviews. I do think it's better than your typical practice amp, and the price can't be beat for what you get. That said, it's important to keep your expectations in check.

              It definitely does the job as a basic small guitar amp with a bunch of digital effects and amp modeling (probably better than you'll find on anything similar in size/price). Headphone jack is a must, and it's there. The ability to have a clean line input is handy, but it's not going to give you great sound with anything that's not in the range you'd expect for a guitar. That is, anything with bass. Running an mp3 player through it sounds tinny, like an inexpensive radio. Similarly, the tuner works, but it's not very elaborate. If you had a small practice amp that didn't have those features, you'd be saying, "wouldn't it be nice if...?" Well it does, and that's great. Add those features to the effects and modeling, and this exceeds expectations.

              If you want a portable amplified speaker with great deep sound for a synth or something like that, get something like a Bose®, Jambox®, or similar instead. If you have an external effects processor or tuner on your smartphone or tablet, then I don't know that you get a lot from this beyond simplicity, and I'd get one of those rich-sound powered speakers instead. Then again, if you need a basic guitar amp that's battery powered, for beach, busking, etc., and you don't want to mess with other effects and tuning solutions, then this will meet your needs well. You'll be happy with the basics an the extra features.

              I'm keeping it because the price is right and there are times when I want something more like this and don't want to have to rely on my phone/iPad having charge. It's just very very easy and does a great job at what it's meant to do. Grab this, a cable, and your guitar and you're ready to play anywhere. And at this price you don't have to worry about leaving it in your car, at work, at a friend's house, etc.

                        This is a great little amp with sound quality well above what I would expect in such a small, inexpensive package. Setting aside time for home studio practice on my larger amps (Peavey for Takamine A/E and Fender for Telecaster) can be inconvenient with my hectic schedule, but I can practice in our den/home entertainment room (usually during commercials) with both guitars in this amp with little effort and more convenience.

                        Versatile lightweight good sounding, can be battery powered. Has good sounding effects and dual inputs so I can plug up in "mic" input and let students use effects etc.
