OVERVIEW

Satch's signature tone in a plug-in headphone amp!

The amPlug series of palm-sized headphone guitar amps make it easy to enjoy great guitar/bass sounds at home, in your room, or anywhere. This lineup is now joined by the amPlug Joe Satriani signature model, which borrows freely from the VOX/Joe Satriani line of signature pedal effects.

With its bright red body, the amPlug Joe Satriani delivers the awesome sound of Joe Satriani's custom rig—distortion pedal through a high-gain vacuum tube amplifier, followed by a delay—and reproduces the settings created by Joe himself. Inspired by the distortion circuitry of the VOX/Joe Satriani Satchurator pedal, the amPlug Joe Satriani preserves much of the pick attack to create an articulate, playable distortion.

Flick the switch to activate the analog-style delay effect. Inherited from the "Lo-Fi mode" of the VOX/Joe Satriani Time Machine delay pedal, the delay features Joe's distinctive EQ tone, combining both high-pass and low-pass filters.

Use the aux input jack to plug your CD/MP3 player right into the amPlug Joe Satriani and jam along! Play along with Joe Satriani's classic tunes, or with any of your favorite music. Enjoy the amPlug's extreme play-anywhere portability, with up to eleven hours of battery life. You can also connect the optional amPlug Cabinet (sold separately) and create your own miniature amp stack!

FEATURES
  • Joe's signature lead tone with your choice of delay on or off
  • Distortion tone with superb dynamic response, inspired by the Satchurator
  • Analog-style delay with Joe's filter & EQ, inherited from the Time Machine
  • Plugs straight into your electric guitar, so you can instantly enjoy great sound through your headphones
  • Convenient and portable with up to 11 hours of battery operation

Plug the amPlug Joe Satriani in, connect your headphones, and play with Satriani's powerful and expansive sound. Order now!

      Comments about Vox Joe Satriani amPlug Guitar Headphone Amp:

      I had no idea that these little babies existed. Well I found them bought two and I am blown away! The sound is like you're plugged into the big boy amps.

      I love the metal with all of that crunch and high end gain. The tone and volume are just perfect.

      These are so good that I am going after more and the price is so good, but there is nothing Cheap about these Vox Amplugs!

      Bottom line; I am a huge fan!

      Thank you Musicians Friend for all of the great products that I have been able to enjoy, over the years!

      Comments about Vox Joe Satriani amPlug Guitar Headphone Amp:

      Distortion is a little muddy, hard to pick out individual notes, then again, it is a Joe Satriani type sound. The hiss is like the sound of a strat hiss, and should not exist in such a small battery powered circuit, but maybe that is intentional. I also use other VOX headphone amps and sound is better there.

          Excellent!! I love this thing. I've been trying to find a way to get great sound from my guitar to my earphones for a while now. I looked into practice amp and even iphone adapters but wasn't impressed. This is PERFECT!

            I've known VOX to be a quality product, and this unit is no exception. Great sound, easy to use, and capable of a variety of awesome sounds. With a good pair of headphones, and a little experimenting it can produce clean & crisp, thick & funky, and a nice delay/sustain. It's perfect for late night practice sessions.

            All i can say at this time is that "I just love this thing" So versatile and sounds spectacular, I thought that I was actually Sach, for a few seconds anyway, Thanks Joe and Vox outstanding product I just wish I would have had one as a teenager growing up. No more neg response from the parents about what they considered noise.

            Amazing Practice Tool & One of the Best Amp Modelers Ever!

            By Overdriven to Joy

            from San Diego, CA

            Comments about Vox Joe Satriani amPlug Guitar Headphone Amp:

            After buying this and discovering how great it sounds thru a line input on an amp, I went back to a local guitar shop to show it off. I plugged in and ran it into the line in on a Fender Mustang III and the guys in the store were astounded at the sound. I can't say enough about how great a job Vox did on this little device. Pair it up with an AC30 model for clean tones and you'd have 2 channels of rock tone heaven. Just amazing!
            This Amplug is astonishing. Really! It's a great practice tool. It has all you need - great tone that runs from crunchy Marshall to total Shred; a perfectly dialed in delay that fattens up your tone and makes your practice solos soar; a very versatile tone range with it's single tone control; Line input for your iPod so you can jam with Satch or any songs on your playlist. Then run this into the line input on your amp or PA and prepared to be astounded. Seriously this is one of the best sounding modeling units I've ever played through. Shred overdrive down to clean Marshall tones. Turn your guitar volume down and it cleans up just like a real tube amp. Adjust the tone control from sizzling, ripping treble to mellow and muted tones. I've run overdrive and wah pedals in front of this modeler and they just rock! Simply amazing!
            It's a plastic plug-into-your-guitar device so don't expect it to survive a headbanging gig but it's plenty tough for day to day practice use. Everything feels secure and decent for a low priced item like this.
            As I said, incredible tone for practice or even live performance. I can't think of a floor modeler that can beat this tone for hundreds more dollars so it's a great value.

            Nice Sound but Noisy & Overpriced

            By DTWguy

            from Detroit

            Comments about Vox Joe Satriani amPlug Guitar Headphone Amp:

            I have also got the AC30 and Metal versions and really enjoy using those. The difference with the JoeSat is the extra stop on the power switch that enables delay. It sounds nice with the dials at 12-ish, smooth distortion, good tone. But its pretty noisy though, much more than the AC30 at similar settings, esp if you turn the tone and gain right up. After the first couple of weeks I don't use this amp as much as the AC30 or metal, and will prob sell it on e-bay. Unless you really want to have the delay feature, the AC30 is better value for money.

            Comments about Vox Joe Satriani amPlug Guitar Headphone Amp:

            I own an Acvox model and a classic rock model, and I do not see any justification for the increase in price. I am sorry but this cost too much and is not that good It is just okay It really needs more features and a clean channel and maybe I would buy another one

            Satriani & Vox Roxx!!!

            By WarrenelisDeMartini68

            from Chicago & Florida baby!

            Comments about Vox Joe Satriani amPlug Guitar Headphone Amp:

            Considering the state of our economy, I consider myself fortunate to own this very fun piece of gear which I bought for Christmas to use with my Fender Strat and Les Paul. I only gave it a 4.5 on features, because I wish it only had an adjustable delay rate-but it's perfectly fine for quiet practicing anytime. Too many of us expect the world sometimes huh? I'm a guitarist in the Chicago suburbs who loves VOX and also own the Satchurator pedal and VT50 combo. Great stuff! Considering the small package, it's great that we live in times that offer such cool, fun digital doo dads like this one. There are a nice range of tones you can get with light gain, but the sweet spot is the "tone" button like the Satchurator has. Thank you Joe and Vox!!!
