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.

The first one lasted about 1 month. The input jack from the auxiliary source broke free from its tiny soldered connection. I got another one. Same thing happened. You have to be very careful not to put any pressure on the plug. I'm looking for something more rugged.

          I've been using the origianl Vox classic rock headphone amp for a couple of years.....when I heardc there was one with reverb, I had to get it....it also has chorus and flange which I don't use but it is there....this 2nd generation Vox classic rock is quieter and built better...the aux input jack and the headphone jack is much more solid....and the reverb sounds pretty good for what this is....my studio is in the basement and sometimes I would rather be in the living room and that is where I use it....it's great for lessons off the computer as you can plug right in to the aux and adjust both the computer volume and the guitar volume....so it works out well...

            Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

            This NEW plug in is a vast improvement over the previous models. I have the BASS model and the new Classic Rock is GREAT. Great for quite time jamming. Yes it has good sounds, and variation. Beats the old version so much I might even buy a new bass plug in. The new plug in is flexible, meaning that it does not stay in one position like the old ones. Allows for multiple type guitar connection position without damaging the plug or your guitar. The sounds are very nice and though not as versatile as an effects or amp , it does offer many variations with the limited effects it has. I highly recommend this products, and the best value for the money you'll ever spend on sound equipment.

              Comments about Vox amPlug 2 Classic Rock Guitar Headphone Amp:

              I play dobro in a bluegrass band and am often in a position where I can't use an amp. Surrounded by Fiddle and banjo, I have to depend a sound man to give me a signal in the monitors that allow me to hear myself. Since I work off scales in a key and what the other guys are playing, I don't have things memorized so I need a clear signal to hear where I am. If I have to pick hard to hear myself it presents problems with my speed and accuracy. I needed a way to self-monitor my signal. With this tiny amp and earbuds, I'm able to hear everything I play with no interference from the other instruments. With the earbuds I have my own hidden monitor system. Great little amp.

                    Have to move to Seattle and stay in hotel for 9-week cancer treatment program. With this great little unit I can play as loud as I like without disturbing anyone else, any time of the day or night. Nine weeks away from my music room and my band buddies will be really hard to take, but with this little powerhouse headphone amp, I can at least keep my chops up, and keep myself amused and entertained, without being a general nuisance. The controls are easy, and effects surprisingly good.

                        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.

                        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!

                        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.

                              I just love this. Sounds great for rehearsing but I could use this through a PA for a gig or for recording. It has a very musical sound.

                                  This Vox amplug sounds good when you crank it through MDR 7506's. Very portable, and let's get your guitar fix on during power outages, etc.

                                    I am always amazed when the next little device comes on the market, and find how much tech they can stuff into a tiny space. This really is a cool little box, supremely portable, and has just enough of a variety of tones and effects to do a lot in a little space. The only negative is very minor. When playing kicked back in an easy chair like I do, the unit has an unfortunate location when playing guitars that have the jack on the lower bout of the instrument, as with a Tele. You have to be constantly aware not to bind the thing, and break off its swivel plug. Best used in an armless chair, or while standing. Other than that, I am quite pleased.

                                    Good product, easy to use, just plug and play. +1 for its portability.

                                    I use it with Headphone and the sound is fine.

                                    The major difficulty that I am facing is to change the effect mode during playing. It seems that this model is not built to accommodate this function. Even it is almost impossible to change between effect and no effect (clean) without having to pause playing. It will be better if it has dedicated switch button at least for these function (effect vs clean).

                                    It will also be better if it has AC adapter port as an option for the power sources. Currently it has 2 AAA battery as the only option. Although it is easy to modify the power source (you just need to use 1A 3V AC/DC adapter and connect the +/- from the adapter to the +/- in the battery compartment). I did that and it works! (saving money and the environment)

                                          What a great sounding mini amp. I've had to use headphone mini amps for the last 15 years due to time constraints and location of practice area. I didn't want to use the precious practice time I had just to set up full size amp for only an hour or so and then return everything back to storage area. It was so much simpler and convenient just to plug a mini amp into my guitar, put on head set and play. Down side was always the quality of the mini amps I was using. I was getting them for around half of what a vox cost.. I always wanted a vox but they were expensive. After joining mf rewards club and making several purchases I bought my vox for about half price by applying my points to the purchase. I should have never waited. This vox is 10 times better than the cheaper brands. As soon as I opened the packaging and held it in my hand I could feel the quality. When I first plugged it in and started playing I got really upset. Not at the mini amp but at myself for waiting so long. I highly recommend buying this mini amp. Trust me. It's really worth it and you'll be glad you did.

                                            The amp is very nice. I like using it to practice on my mini strat on my easy chair to keep from bothering others.

                                                The sound quality isn't the best and it's less than user friendly but it's quick and easy. I use it for practicing with headphones late at night when everybody else in the house is asleep. You can line in an iPod or phone and jam along. Perfect for learning songs for that last minute gig.
