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 practicing and messing around. The gain type distortion is ridiculous, meaning it will sound like total crap way before you turn it all the way up.
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. I now have a Gibson SG Standard with stock 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. Really wanted it to play along with ipod, and this does not seem to be the best product for that. The other small problem is that the battery cover would not stay in place.
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. it lso make a good preamp for a bigger amp and will transfer it amazing tone. I eould have to say this is one of the best sounding amps I've heard.
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. Granted the line 6 device is significantly costlier, but the tone out of it is much more interesting. But I can't toss the line 6 unit into my guitar case.
