OVERVIEW

VOX tone that plugs directly into your guitar!

The Vox amPlug Metal is a headphone amp that can help you to create the perfect practice session. The tiny amPlug plugs directly into your guitar--then just plug in your headphones and relish some great Vox tone.

Jamming late at night? Don't want to wake the neighbors? Maybe you want to work out a lick with your MP3 player without taking the time to set up your amp. You want to play guitar right now. amPlug is the answer. Simply plug this palm-sized headphone guitar amp directly into your guitar, and enjoy serious guitar sound anywhere, anytime.

Even with its ultra-compact size, amPlug perfectly reproduces the complex and warm distortion that is distinctive of a vacuum tube, as well as the powerful high gain produced by a large amp stack. Using analog modeling technology, the Vox amPlug delivers full-fledged amp sound.

Even the circuit response of the original amp is simulated completely. The simulation extends not only to the response of the tone circuits, but also to the way in which the high frequency and gain are affected when you turn down the volume control of the guitar. Every detail has been faithfully reproduced.

amPlug can be used in numerous ways. With up to fifteen hours of battery life, it's easy to take amPlug anywhere. In addition to practicing at home, it's a great way to warm up before a live performance or on the road. And amPlug is not just a convenient way to get great guitar sound. There's also an AUX input jack so you can jam along with your CD/MP3 player.

Metal delivers the explosive roar of US high-gain metal sound, and uses two stages of ultra-high gain plus a mid-cut circuit, giving you modern metal high-gain sound anywhere and anytime.

Also available in AC30, that emulates the AC30 top boost sound of a vintage VOX AC30, and Classic Rock, which gives you the great high-gain sound of a UK-made 100W amp.

FEATURES
  • Plugs directly into your guitar”a great-sounding headphone guitar amp that gives you serious sound fast.
  • AUX in jack lets you jam along with your CD/MP3 player.
  • 100% analog circuit faithfully simulates the response of the original amps.
  • Up to 15 hours of battery life with two Alkaline AAA batteries.
  • Quick and easy setup! Just connect amPlug to your guitar and enjoy serious sound.
  • With its completely analog design, great care was also taken with amPlug's gain circuitry.

You've tried headphone amps before, but not from Vox! Satisfaction guaranteed.

I was thinking about spending 100 bucks on a 15 watt amp from line 6 but then ran into this little guy on youtube and bought it as soon as possible! i loved it!!! i have not one bvad thing to say about it except i wish the battery life was longer but 15 hours is still pretty good haha. Its capable of some serious high gain distortion! I can play Slipknot, Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, Avenged Sevenfold and MANY MORE high gain distortion bands all in one amp that fits in my pocket! im completely impressed! if youre looking for quiet practice and high gain distortion whenever...this amp is for you! you can also carry around like some ipod speakers and set up like a portable rig with this thing instead of spending $30 on the cab for it!!! i love it so much! i plan to buy more vox amplugs in the near future!!! one last thing...this is by NO MEANS a clean amp...for metalheads only...but i seriously recommend it...its just too awesome!!

This things great!

By Randy Johnson

Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

If you're on the fence....just buy one. For the price it is well worth the fun and convience!
This little thing ROCKS! Ofcourse you need some decent earbuds, but the sound is really amazing! I was hesitant to buy one, but I said what the hell. I was pleasantly surprised and for the price it was worth it. I may try some of the other sounds.
It's plastic, but what isn't anymore.

Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

This is a great piece of equipment! It is ment to give you some tone and crunch when you cant plug into a big amp. My guitar tech hooked me up with this! It is great to warm up with in the green room, or in the van. People, quit acting like this doesnt sound as good as your main amp!! It's FOR PRACTICE!! and its worth every penny!!

Pretty cool for a little thing

By Rob123xyz

Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

Just got it. Looks like a piece of junk. Feels like a piece of junk. Doesn't cost much. Did I throw my money away? Then I plugged it in. What a great investment. My regular amp has a headphone jack so that wasn't the issue. I just wanted to be able to sit on the screened porch without lugging my amp out every time I wanted to practice. Or just sit out on the grass and play without disturbing the neighbors. Fits easily in the case. I'm not gonna BS about using it backstage to warm up before opening for Metallica. This thing fits the bill just fine for me.Volume and tone controls offer decent control of the sound. With the drive control down it sounds a little dirty, but crank it up and it actually doesn't sound half bad for practicing metalwork. And indeed, being able to plug in an mp3 player or drum machine and play along is a great feature. Thumbs up!

        Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

        4 stars because there isn't a good overdrive sound, or ability to adjust tone controls (bass/mid/treb). You can get great distortion, and a couple different kinds. I play it through a strat mostly because it sits in the jack nicely. The thing has the same basic tone whether your playing single coils or hums, high or low output - sure there are differences, but they are not major differences, so just pick the guitar that the jack sits in nicely. Different headphones sound differently, like I find my Bose headphones to be too bassy, and the cheaper ipod headphones actually sound better. This thing has a TONE of bass. So yeah not super versatile, but definitely good for metal, and crazy over the top heavy distortion. I don't find the low gain tones to be anything near a good overdrive, once you get down there it just gets weak and fizzy. But for what it does, its nice.

        Awesome To Practice With!

        By The JSL

        from NH

        Comments about Vox amPlug Metal Guitar Headphone Amp:

        This little guy is fantastic! It sounds awesome, and it's prefect for practicing without bothering anyone else in the house. My favorite thing about it is not having to mess with any wires (I have the Marshall MS-2 and it's very clunky to set up compared to this). It feels like you're using a wireless unit if you like walking around your house with it!
