you need the lead
this thing sounds amazing. a tube amp in your case/bag.
turn the gain down all the way,mid to mid,and max out the volume for a creamy clean,max out everything for heavy crunch.and of course everything in between.the delay adds a nice mild flavor you can turn on and off with a switch.just don't expect to be able to tweak the effect.the whole thing is made of plastic and seems kinda fragile.i could see the jack snapping off, but i am pretty rough with my stuff.would be cool if it was like a v.w. key...switch jack amp...fits perfect on fenders,but for every other guitar run your headphone cable/ instrument cable with connector to headphone from radio shack($4.oo) out and under the strap where it meets the guitar then put the cable through a back belt loop of your pants then on to wherever(p.a.,stereo,car...) to keep things out of your way and your amplug pretty secure, just try to remember not to set your guitar down with it still plugged in. bottom line out of all the headphone amps(and some real amps)this little vox should be in your tool box. for 50 bucks you'd be stupid not to buy this. think of it as a backup amp that goes everywhere,just treat it with respect.
