Summary: I got the Classic version of the Vox Amplug. In the description they say it sounds like a Fender. Well, that does not happen on any setting. It actually has more of an AC30 sound. While I would have liked nice clean tones that emulate Fender, the semi-clean tones I get with this device is usable for...
Summary: I bought the metal one, loved it... so I then bought this one: disappointing :( If you are in two minds to get this or the one for metal, go for the metal. Build quality is the same, it's more fragile than your girlfriend... unfortunately with a lot less tone and sustain as well.
Summary: I just received this small headphone amp and just quit playing it after two straight hours. I purchased the Vox Amplug AC30 about a year ago and was less than impressed with it. At the time, I was running it into a Highway One Telecaster with stock single coil pickups.
Summary: This product is ok for private practice and mobility and it does have a decent sound on its own. Two problems though. When you connect your ipod and try to play along, the overall sound of the music and guitar degenerates.
Summary: I play punk like Green Day. This married with my SSS strat make the perfect tone for any punk, alternative, Classic rock or cleans. If you play humbuckers you can get a much heavier more suitable for metal, but I really don't care for playing metal.It is very versatile with the gain and tone dial.
Summary: This was recommended to me by a friend and I love this little thing. It is good to practice with when I get off of graveyards in the morning when noise is an issue when everyone is sleeping. It definitely has good tone, and it fits just fine in my strat.
Summary: Not a bad little unit and I have to admit it's easy to carry but it doesn't sound as good as I was hoping. I could be expecting too much from a $40 device. I was happy with it until I got a line 6 guitar pod and at that point quit using the Vox amp plug.
