This little guy fills a nice niche in your toolbox. It is great for practice and does a pretty good job of working a very small room. I bought it primarily because it allows you to play an instrument and do vocals through it and unlike most small amps has the ability to add the effects to your vocals. This is a three watt amp. It sounds like three watts. Frankly, a pignose or a Dano HT are just about as loud or louder. But, the sound quality of the vox is much better. For a small, portable amp this little guy actually has a pretty good low end and a pretty rich presence. The effects are ok to good and the battery life is good. You get your money's worth and it does what is says it should.

Love the portability and the sound of this little amp:
It was a great bedroom amp and was also good for a small venue. But my complaint is that 4 days after the warranty expired. It went out. It was working fine one day and gone the next. The line setting works but all the presets are gone. It seems that it has small chips that are almost impossible to change unless you are really experienced at this sort of thing. Guess it's just a keyboard accessory now: Sad!

Great amp

By Dimitrio Blanco

from Columbus, GA

Comments about Vox MINI3 3W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

Ok, first off I'd like to explain if you haven't read the description properly. This comes with a wire to plug it into the wall instead of the use of batteries, but you can use batteries if you want. This is a great amp for practicing, and it comes with a bunch of effects and amp styles. This amp may be small, but it can rock the house down if you want it to, even on battery power. Buy this for a practice amp, and you will not be dissappointed.

Comments about Vox MINI3 3W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

I've been playing the guitar for 40+ years and have several amplifiers that I use constantly. This little amp is VERY deceiving! It has an amazing sound for something so small and highly portable! I already have one and am getting another one as a backup amp! It's a great performer for most styles of music. I play popular, classical, C&W, R&R, Jazz, and some blues and this little amp never disappoints me or the audiences in a small gathering. It's an amazing amp...that's why I'm getting another one!

Comments about Vox MINI3 3W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

Get one, you wont be sorry. remember, its a portable practice/ busking amp...it does that extremely well.
I have had this lil beast for about 3 weeks. It still amazes me how good it sounds or how loud it gets.i have been in several bands and currently have a nice home studio. I have played thru many combos and also a full stack onstage with a 300watt mos valve amp. Im saying this to make a point that I have owned many amps including a Vox Valvetronix combo. This amp is not what one would expect from a portable amp.The amp models chosen sound great and lend to the versatility. The poweris very goodand the small box gets really loud.I have a 50 watt marshall 1x12 in my studio but now use the vox for practicing. its too cool, plus its so versatile. I have not used the mic jack but the mp3 jack is so good. i love to use my ipod to play mu backing tracks and j over them, that works very well.controls are well laid out,better than a valvetronix.very easy to use. You can definately use it for street performance and such. The tone and sound is equal to a 15 watt 1x12 or better.for this price get it just to play around with, i did and i love this thing!
no issues yet, we'll see how it goes.well built.
it would be foolish not to get one for the money. i would buy this over many 15-20 watt combos. if it were stolen id would buy it again!

Comments about Vox MINI3 3W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

This is a small portable practice amp. It is important that you realize what you are buying before you buy. That said, this amp is one of the best sounding small amps I have ever played. The amount of bass and warmth you get out of this amp are simply surprising. When you combine this great sound with all the features this amp has, you end up with a really great deal. It is rare when you buy something and feel like you got more than your money's worth. Buying this amp was one of those rare moments.

Amazing tone...and value!!!

By generalhaney

Comments about Vox MINI3 3W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

This amp sounds incredible! Honestly, I am very impressed. And it's LOUD! I played a gig using this amp powered by the 6 AA (Rayovac) batteries in a 100' by 50' room! I was going to go to a direct box with it, but didn't need to. It was perfect. We had 4 or 5 people singing, 2 percussionists, an acustic guitar player, and piano. I didn't come close to maxing out the volume. Now, the meat and potatoes....the tone is outstanding! I think I like the AC15 setting the best, but they are all very good. The effects are also very good and nicely designed, with just the sweep of one knob. The ability to go direct with this is nice. The ability to plug a mic into it on a seperate channel is also nice. The ability to plug an mp3 player into it having it's own feed is great! I can practice songs easily and conveiniently this way. I play a couple times a week in church, and it's nice to practice new worship songs with this. It seems to be easy on batteries too! For this price, I cannot recommend this enough. Vox really hit it out of the park with this. What a value. I still can't get over how good it sounds. I will definately be recording with some of these sounds...it's that good. I sometimes through a tube preamp or a sonic stomp in front of it, but is not necessary.

Comments about Vox MINI3 3W Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

I bought this amp from Musician's Friend after reading about it and doing some research. This amp is great! Perfect for practice without annoying the neighbors. Effects are fun too. This amp may only be 3 watts but this thing can get loud!! I am not sorry I bought this amp and this is one amp that I plan to keep.

      Much more than I expected from this mighty mite. I just wanted something to take out to the park and did not expect the sound to carry the way it does. Huge package of efx and the bang for the buck is unbeatable. Also, The 6 AA batteries have lasted a lot longer than I thought they would.

        After reading all the reviews and playing thru this for a week now, I haven't found a downside to it yet! want to play this in a little coffee shop with a mic attached while playing a backing Track thru the aux. That'll be the true test for me. It blew away my friends, out playin in the backyard. It's been running a week now on the same 6 AA batteries I first put in it! I highly recommend this even it were just for the Shock Value! You WILL Be Amazed!
