by Jim R. from Texas panhandleThese things are incredible for practicing while preserving the peace! It sounds almost like the real amp it's simulating: The Fender 65 Twin Reverb. I also have the AC30 amPlug, and the Classic Ro... read more [+]ck amPlug. I'll eventually purchase the Metal, Satriani, Acoustic, Night Train, and I am debating on whether to get the "Lead" amPlug, or amPhone. I highly recommend these little amps. Use a good set of headphones for best results. close [-]

VOX AC30 IS JUST AWESOME!
by Don from Lewisville, TXI plugged this thing in and got blown away! I have used a Marshall mini and C Tech and they don't compare to this. The Marshall is great in OD, and the C Tech just seems cheap. I love this AC30 becaus... read more [+]e it is the only one I've found that sounds like the amp. I can get as clean as I want and as distorted as I want. The controls are great and I can swing this thing out of my way. I'm sitting there playing it in amazement and then I notice the label "Made in Japan" and I think no wonder. This thing is not junk it is well made and sounds like a high dollar Vox. close [-]

UNBELIEVABLE analog sound from a cheap pocket headphone amp!
by Jeff H from Twin Cities, MNI can only surmise that the people who rated the Vox AC30 anything less than 4.5 or 5 stars: (a) Have never tried any of the other garbage products that pass as "pocket guitar amps" before; (b) Own a ... read more [+]REAL AC30 and expect nothing less than that exact sound from a $40 piece of plastic; or (c) Are overthinking their review just a tad.

The Vox Amplug series is a revelation for players who can't crank up the volume, but still want to practice and sound good. And the "AC30" model is the crown jewel of the Amplug line. Completely analog, and running strong on 2 AAA batteries for 15 hours or more, you will be amazed how powerful and authentic the AC30 Amplug sounds. The range of this particular model is what sets it apart from the others - it can do completely clean tones, or it can become a raucous, overdriven "Top Boost" amp if you crank up the gain. I've used it with a Les Paul, a Strat, a Jackson, single coils, and humbuckers - it rocks with any piece of equipment. And even with some of my "lesser" headphones, it retains the fullness and clarity of an actual guitar amplifier.
Using it with headphones to practice would be good enough, but there are even better "hidden" uses of the Amplug that arguably make it worth three times the price (but don't tell Vox that!). There's an aux-in jack that allows you to plug in an MP3 player and play along with the music. But even better, since the unit itself basically behaves like a pre-amp, you can get an inexpensive audio cord, plug it into the headphone jack, and have a full-powered "line out" signal to a guitar amp or virtually any type of portable speaker, car stereo, or computer speaker with an input jack. You can practice out loud on speakers that were never intended to be guitar amps, and it sounds surprisingly good!
Great product, every single guitarist should own one of these and keep it in their guitar case! close [-]
I'm a believer
by Paul Hartmann from Hyde Park, NYI was SO skeptical about this amp until I plugged it in! All I could think of was "How'd they DO that!?". It's amazing how well this tiny thing emulates all the qualities of the real amp's versatili... read more [+]ty and sonic capability. I don't feel like I'm sacrificing decent sound for privacy when I'm using this. I build my own travel guitars, so with this, some good compact phones, and a spare battery, everything fits in one case that can go into an airline overhead. I'll be ordering another "flavor" soon. close [-]
