OVERVIEW

Rock out with great Vox tone, anywhere, anytime.

Offering the easiest way to enjoy true analog amplifier sound in your headphones, the amPlug series has been a bestseller since it first appeared in 2007.

With amPlug 2, the crucial analog circuit has been drastically improved, and each model now provides three modes. Guitar types provide multi-effect functionality, and a rhythm function has been added to the bass type. A foldable plug mechanism that rotates 180 degrees and an auto power-off function are additional features that contribute significantly to improved convenience and ease of use.

The amPlug is the simplest way to get serious sound; occupying virtually no space, it's an ideal choice for any guitarist or bassist.

Plug the amPlug into your guitar and enjoy serious sound. It's that simple!
To use the palm-sized amPlug, just plug it into your guitar and grab your headphones. Playing your guitar or bass with amPlug results in serious amp sound that's overflowing with presence. A wide range of variation is available, as the lineup consists of four models: "AC30" provides the AC30 top-boost sound, "Classic Rock" gives you the classic crunch sound of a UK-made 100W amp, "Metal" delivers the extreme high-gain sound of a US-made amp, and "Bass" is designed specifically for bass.

A completely analog design accurately simulates the circuits of classic tube amplifiers, resulting in a rich, detailed sound.

While retaining the fully analog multi-stage gain circuit, additional refinements have been made toward reproducing the sound and performance of real tube amps. These refinements include factors such as reproducing the way a tube amp responds to different guitars, pickups, and volume as well as recreating the sense of air movement within the speaker cabinet. As a result, the carefully selected circuit structure and components of the new amPlug delivers a more highly evolved sound.

Nine selectable effects provide a great range of sonic variation
The second-generation amPlug adds a variety of new functions. To give you more variety, each amp provides three modes. "AC30" provides use of a tremolo circuit, "Classic Rock" features a mid-boost, "Metal" gives you mid-cut and "Bass" allows the amount of gain to be switched. The three guitar-type models also provide nine selectable effects with three types of Chorus, Delay and Reverb, while "Bass" contains nine different rhythm patterns. With versatile sound and functionality that is uncommon of such a compact unit, these models enable you to get even more serious about your guitar or bass playing.

Foldable plug that rotates 180 degrees
The plug that you insert into your guitar can rotate in five steps up to 180 degrees, enabling it to be adjusted for optimal visibility. This design also allows even more compact storage in your guitar's case or gig bag.

Auto power-off function ensures longer battery life
We've added a function that automatically turns off the power even, if you leave the unit with the power on. Since this function works by detecting operations or audio signals within a certain length of time (30 minutes), it has absolutely no effect on normal use. This feature further enhances the convenience of the amPlug.

amPlug is the most convenient way to play

With the amPlug providing up to 17 hours of battery-powered operation, you'll be able to play anytime and anywhere. Since there's no need for a guitar cable, it's a great way of practicing at home, or warming up before a live performance or while on tour. Also, there's an AUX in jack for your MP3 player, so you can jam along with your favorite songs.

Highlights
No need for a guitar cable! Plug it directly into your guitar; the latest version of this headphone guitar amp is the fastest way to get authentic amplifier sound.
The fully-analog circuit has been totally reworked for an even clearer and more present sound!
"Classic Rock" delivers the classic crunch of a UK-made 100W amp.
Each model provides three amp modes, giving you even more variety.
Nine selectable effects (Chorus x 3, Delay x 3, Reverb x 3) are built into the guitar-type models.
A multi-stage gain circuit featuring VOX's proprietary analog technology perfectly reproduces the complex distortion created by a vacuum tube amplifier.
New folding plug mechanism rotates 180 degrees to fit any guitar
Play anytime, anywhere with up to 17 hours of battery life
Use the AUX input to jam along with your smartphone, tablet, or MP3 player

My old Guild Starfire sounds better through this than with the multitude of amps available in Logic Pro. The clean sound is rich and clear and there's no denying the fun of shredding with a bit of distortion. The delay and reverb effects sound great and while I haven't tried the others this one really sounds good. Add in simple to use and no need for a chord and its a done deal. Ease of use means more likely to play and with headphones on it doesn't disturb my wife while she watches Say Yes to the Dress.

    Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

    My wife does not have to listen to my repetitious practice on my solid body guitars! I also record and this little headphone amp helps a lot with that. I am very surprised that Vox can get this kind of quality sound out of this little unit!

    Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

    I bought this for convenience practicing with headphones. For that it is great.

    The effects are limited but for basic clean and a little bit of overdrive grit, this does the trick. The AC30 model has more variety in effects, but this one sounded more "real" to me. Definitely go online and listen to VOX's official recordings of these to get a sense which model fits your style best.

    So far this has done everything it advertised and did it well.

    My only real complaint is that the angle of the plug is such that you cannot see the three dials that all feel exactly the same. Had the plug rotated the other direction I would be able to see it. This is with a Les Paul / Telecaster style plug on the bottom, it might work better on a Stratocaster plug. It might have even been better to have a short flexible cable rather than a fragile rotating connector.

    The other thing that isn't as big of a deal is the controls are somewhat non-intuitive. If you read the manual it's fine.

        Its not the sound of a real amp since this is for personal use. Its great when warming up or just for playing late nights without getting any family member neighbour complains. ;-)

        Worth if purchased with this intention in mind.

        Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

        In lieu of a complicated amplifier interface to play along with internet videos (backing tracks, tutorials, etc.) this Amplug is quick, handy and does the job! Bought it without seeing one (now I'm curious about the other "flavors" like Vox or Metal Amplugs...) and don't regret it. Coolest aspect is the Fx button which cycles between various effects like reverb, delay, chorus, etc. all of which sound surprisingly full through a good set of headphones. Worth the price to simplify the "grab and play" process while perusing guitar videos!

        Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

        I have been professionally involved in the Music industry for decades upon decades. I was initially given the Vox amPlug2 Classic Rock headphone amp product as a gift. That product did not work. I ordered the identical product for myself vs returning the gift. The new product arrived today and it, too, did not work. What a waste of time and money. That was the first time I have ever experienced ordering junk from Musician's Supply ... oh, parden me, I meant to say Musician's Friend. Never again will I ever order and buy a VOX product from anyone. Their QA is sub-standard, in my opinion. :: The product gets 1 Star out of courtesy.
