VOX amPlug Series 2 - dramatically improved sound and usability!
amPlug, the overwhelming favourite in headphone guitar amps now enters its second generation.
Providing the casual ease of plugging directly into your guitar, the full-fledged sound of analog circuitry, a diverse lineup, the amPlug series has been an ultra-long seller since it appeared in 2007, and now it's been refreshed. A multi-stage gain circuit featuring VOX's proprietary analog technology perfectly reproduces the complex distortion created by vacuum tubes
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 to significantly improved usability.
The amPlug is the simplest way to get serious sound; occupying virtually no space, it's an ideal choice in any situation for the guitarist or bassist.
Absolutely no complex settings! Just plug the amPlug into your guitar and enjoy serious sound.
To use the palm-top sized amPlug, just plug it into your guitar and grab your headphones. Then play your guitar and experience serious amp sound that's overflowing with presence. A wide range of variation is available, with the lineup consisting of four models: "AC30" provides the AC30 top boost sound, "Classic Rock" gives you the classic high-gain sound of a UK-made 100W amp, "Metal" delivers the metal high-gain sound of a US-made amp, and "Bass" is designed specifically for bass.
The circuits of a vacuum tube simulated with a completely analog design; painstakingly detailed sound.
While retaining the fully-analog multi-stage gain circuit, we have made additional refinements toward reproducing the sound of the original tube amps. These refinements include factors such as differences in guitar and pickup, the way in which the amp responds to adjustments of the guitar's volume control, and the sense of air within the speaker cabinet. You'll notice the more highly evolved sound that's delivered by the carefully selected circuit structure and components. In addition to its wide-range design, "Bass" now features VOX's new and original Bassilator, reproducing the powerful ultra-low punch that is distinctive of a bass amp.
Features such as multi-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 three provides three modes. "AC30" lets you use tremolo, "Classic Rock" provides mid-boost, "Metal" gives you mid-cut, and "Bass" allows the amount of gain to be switched. The three guitar-type models also provide 9 types multi-effects with Chorus x 3?Delay x 3?Reverb x 3. "Bass" contains nine different rhythm patterns. With versatile sound and functionality that you would not expect from such a compact unit, these models let you 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, so you can adjust it to the angle of optimal visibility for your guitar. This design also allows even more compact storage.
Auto power-off function keeps the battery from running down
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 care-free usability of these units.
Accessory-like casualness lets you use the amPlug in an endless variety of ways.
With the amPlug providing up to 17 hours of battery-powered operation, you'll be able to play anytime and anywhere. 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. Guitar or bass sound is not all that the amPlug can produce. There's an AUX in jack for your MP3 player, so you can jam along with your favourite songs.
