Vox amPlug Bass
VOX has added two new models to its amPlug range of palm-sized, battery powered, headphone guitar amplifiers: the amPlug Lead and amPlug Bass.
Users can plug either model directly into their guitar (via its built-in 1/4" plug) and play anywhere, anytime. Additionally, an AUX input jack allows the user to jam along with any MP3 player.
The amPlug "Bass" is modeled on VOX's classic AC100 bass amp. According to the brand, it has been further expanded with a full-range tone adapted to today's bass sounds. A compressor/boost effect provides compression as well as a thick overdrive sound. A FET buffer circuit has also been employed to increase the dynamic range.
Using proprietary analog modeling technology, the amPlug range aims at reproducing the complex and warm distortion distinctive of vacuum tubes, as well as the powerful high gain produced by a large amp stack, all in spite of compact dimensions (3.39" x 3.15" x 1.22") and weight (1.41oz., not including batteries).
These models offer up to 20 hours of battery life from two AAA batteries. Visually, amPlug looks like a miniature VOX amplifier, complete with a simulation of the classic VOX diamond grill cloth.
MSRP for either the amPlug Lead or Bass model is $49.99.
