Satriani's Tone, Straight from Your Axe to Your 'Phones!If you love the sound of Joe Satriani's guitar rig, then you'll love the Vox amPlug Joe Satriani edition. The amPlug Joe Satriani plugs right into your guitar and lets you hook up a pair of headphones, giving you the unmistakable sound of a massive guitar amplifier rig right inside your 'phones. This isn't just any amplifier rig either. The sound of the amPlug Joe Satriani is a spot-on recreation of Satch's own personal setup: a custom distortion pedal running into a high-gain amplifier with just a touch of delay. This tone, like the Satcherator pedal that inspired it, is a red hot distortion and drive that preserves the pick attack sound of you guitar, giving your tone added clarity. A stereo 1/8" jack lets you plug in your iPod and jam along with your favorite tunes, and loaded with just a pair of AAA batteries, the amPlug Joe Satriani will let you rock out anywhere for up to 15 hours!

Is that an amp in your pocket...
by Dwayne from portage, MII wasn't expecting much when I got this little amp, but it is definitely worth the price. You can get a decent clean to a screaming high gain tone from this. The ability to plug another device into ... read more [+]it makes it even more valuable.

Here was the kicker for me, the headphone output allows you to use any other amp/system that can take an auxiliary input, Like: PA or another amp and even your car ! I practice while waiting in the car (for the wife, kids, or on roadtrips, etc) and it's just as clear as playing through an amp. Plus, you can still plug your mp3 player into the amPlug and jam along and it's all though the car's system.
So you get:
Portability - Flexibility - Jamability
great tone (and the delay rocks) - Long battery life
You won't regret getting one. close [-]
Great Practice Option for Satch Tone and Soloing!
by Jeff H from Twin Cities, MNThe Vox AmPlugs are fantastic - lightweight, plastic devices that take 2 AAA batteries, plug directly into your guitar and give you loads of tone and power for practicing with headphones. While the A... read more [+]C30 Amplug is the shining star of the line, I'm also happy with the Satriani signature model. Like the "Lead" Amplug, it has a delay option (though the delay time is fixed). It's basically like a fading echo effect, and really just adds depth to solo phrases. Since the Amplugs don't have reverb, it's a nice option to have.

Music Background: Casual Player, Tone Hobbyist
The overall tone is quite good, though it varies a great deal from guitar to guitar. I played it through a Jackson DR6, and it was fantastic. My Les Paul, not as much. I think it would excel with single coils. There is a constant "hiss" sound when you turn it on, but not noticeable during playing. The distortion works best on the higher gain settings, and it's a nice thick tone, which sustains nicely. Highly recommended, though you might want to investigate some of the other Amplugs first. close [-]
