Great Little Amp with Phony Advertising

Scooterist, amazon.com
1 December 2011
  • Summary: I'll start with the bad news first. The title of the listing on Amazon is "Vox MINI3 4-Watt 1x8 Guitar Combo Amplifier". To me this says the amplifier has 4 watts of power into an 8 inch speaker. WRONG!!! It is a 3 watt amplifier into a 5 inch speaker. This could not have been an accident. I believe it to be an outright lie and I don't know why anyone would think it was necessary. Now the good stuff. This is a heck of an amp. Very loud with good quality sound.

Vox min1

Django, amazon.com

  • Summary: I'm pleased with the performance of this little amp-has enough kick to get a full sound. I use it in both plug-in and battery mode. Does anyone know about using (6) 1.2 volt AA rechargeables in it? Don't know it that's enough voltage to push it. Regular AAs are 1.5 volts. Anyway, IMO The amp types aren't as useful as the effects-nice delay/echo, and the reverb, chorus are good. I use only the cleaner amp offerings, esp black/tweed.

Vox creates another hit!

amazon.com
28 September 2011
  • Summary: With all the new mini/micro-amps hitting the market over the past 4 years I've tried many of them. Some of my favorites have been the Roland MICRO-CUBE, Danelectro Honeytone, Vox AC4TV (All-tube with either 8" or 10" Celestion speakers), Fender Super Champ XD (which is really a 15-watt dual tube amp but is small and cheaply priced), and now lastly the VOX Mini-3. While this amplifier compared to the Roland Micro-Cube more than any of the other above amps.

Great sound, great portability.

Skidtz, amazon.com

  • Summary: This is my first amplifier, so my experience is not particularly broad, but I can say I am extremely pleased with the Vox Mini3. I use it with a solid-body ukulele, sure dynamic microphone, and whoever else's instrument needs to plug in. The effects are great, volume is great, and the ability to run vocals and instrument simultaneously is exactly what I needed.

Just what I wanted

The Bluescaster, amazon.com
13 July 2011
  • Summary: It really puts out an impressive array of sounds at a good volume. It will never be a 60W combo amp or anything other than a battery powered mini, but the effects are sharp, and it is very responsive to my Strat.

A good amp!

Silicon Valley Tom, amazon.com
20 June 2011
  • Summary: The VOX mini 3 amplifier does everything I want. With the Gain and Master controls at 1/3 maximum, I have all the volume I need in a 15' X 20' room. If I crank it up it hurts my ears! The microphone input jack works well with my dynamic microphone, and you can get a good balance with the Trim control, so the mic can be louder or softer than the instrument. The Aux In works well with my portable CD player, to play backing tracks while I play over it.

Best Battery Amp Available

Scott F. Hall, amazon.com
15 March 2011
  • Summary: The Vox Mini 3 is truly the best battery powered amp I've tried--it's far superior to 5 others that I own. The speaker is high quality stuff--I think it's a Celestion custom made for Vox. The cabinet is constructed very well with a bass port tuned to the speaker to deliver good low end response. Access to the 6 double A batteries is very simple via a velco secured door in back. Note that an ac-dc power supply is included and it works well, too.

Lot of Bang for Your Buck

John E. Wymore, amazon.com
13 February 2011
  • Summary: The 3W Mini 3 has more output than my 15 W Kustom, and the Mini can be powered by 6 AA batteries for complete portability. The affects are fairly good. I think in this price range I would have expected very meager modeling and affects; but no, they make significant differences in the sound produced. By the way, we play an electric/acoustic bass on it at times. NO trouble at all with the low E string.

Brilliant!

Alice, amazon.co.uk
6 June 2011
  • Summary: absolutely worth the money, i just bought one (not from this seller) and it is fantastic. The effects are so much fun and give a really good sound, it also works perfectly with a guitar and a mic going through it. The individual effects control on the mic channel is a great bonus to. Definitely recommend it!

Fantastic compact portable amp!

Blooming Blossom "BB", amazon.co.uk
18 April 2011
  • Summary: It's the best I could find that will run on batteries as well as being compact, with plenty of effects and enough inputs. You've got the guitar input with all the effects on it, and two separate inputs in the back, one to use with a music player so you can play to your own backing tracks and the other one you can put a mic into, though no effects..
