    SOUND QUALITY

    I use a passive fretless Luthman Wave. I love the bass sounds such rights, the amPlug makes a significant color distortion but not unpleasant that will please those who like more distorted sounds. FX mode is in my opinion irrelevant. The breath is important at high volume.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two days. It can play in any room of the house and go on holiday with low hanging without an amp.

    But I do not use daily: the headphone plugged into the amp is much better. To play with a player: like, interesting travel, otherwise a small mixer with a preamp, which is also on the lower branch is not much more expensive (in time)......

    OVERALL OPINION

    I've had two days. It can play in any room of the house and go on holiday with low hanging without an amp.

    But I do not use daily: the headphone plugged into the amp is much better. To play with a player: like, interesting travel, otherwise a small mixer with a preamp, which is also on the lower branch is not much more expensive (in time) and it is as well.

    It's really a nomad accessory therefore reasonably priced, but not absolutely replace a real amp, even for work headphone.

    The buy? Why not to take the bass on vacation. But I bought it more as an interesting alternative to connect the headphones to the amp, and on that side I planted. Anyway, I keep it anyway.

    For specifications all was said ...

    UTILIZATION

    simple configuration, no need for manual

    SOUND QUALITY

    the effects are not very useful, the sound quality is fine for the headphone but not bosser cavorting either buzz it a little high volume (compared to my EBS MicroBass received recently, there is no picture) but mobile solution The amPlug, battery, mp3 player, headphones and go!

    I use it with a JB, it makes the job very well

    A great little tool to play without disturbing the environment.

    It plugs into the jack on the bass. It connects with a good headphone and example to his computer to play with guitar pro or an mp3 player and go.

    We get a good bass sound with or without distortion.

    It runs on two AAA batteries, I put rechargeable batteries otherwise it wears relatively quickly for everyday use.

    UTILIZATION

    Three settings are available with small knobs: gain, tone, volume.

    Avoid putting the gain knob on the bottom but otherwise the sound palette is sufficient.

    SOUND QUALITY

    It may sound "nature" or just saturated it takes. The sustain is made.

    I use both with a passive bass with an active.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two months this has changed my life, I can play anywhere without disturbing those around me. I find her stunning FX mode but the volume is a little low in normal mode (this is in my opinion the only flaw.
    For less than 40 € is really a purchase I do not regret it, I use it every day.

    Small amp simulator at Vox.

    UTILIZATION

    It plugs into the female jack of the bass or guitar (it works very well with a guitar, better than a bass amp with a guitar does not work I usually find). It has a clean channel and an overdrive channel, gain control, volume and tone.
    A headphone input, an external source input jack mini format.
    So we just play with headphones in silence all external source by sending a metronome, songs, a drum machine, etc ... You can also use the headphone output for connecting speakers or another story to get out of her in case of small composition session with other musicians or playing low volume (and yes it will still not ask for much!) with them.

    SOUND QUALITY

    As long as you have good headphones the sound quality is good! I use it on bass and guitar.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for almost a year, I'm on holiday with all guitar and bass, I can work anywhere with her, and that's cool! It also allows me to get into sessions without waking times night compulsive baby or the whole house, I play with the accompaniment and sounds good to pass without hearing anything to 2 meters.

    Short little tool very useful work, far from being a gimmick.

    Quality / price ratio for a great tool that I use it almost daily. I would do without hesitation that choice

    Looks like a li'l bitty Vox head that plugs directly into your output jack. Plug in your favorite headphones (1/8 in jack)and play anywhere anytime. You can plug in a sound source in a separate jack. (PC, Mp3 player, etc. also with 1/8 in jack.)
    Has multiple controls for multiple effects. Has overdrive setting.

    I've been playing 4/5 string bass guitars on and off for 40 years. Have sat in/subbed for band members who couldn't make the gig/practice. Play for fun.

    Play Classic Rock mostly, Prefer the old 3 man power group stuff like Cream, Blue Cheer and the Hook.

    Got this because I needed to play silently, in spaces much smaller than a stage/garage.

    Got this because I needed to play silently, in spaces much smaller than a stage/garage.
    Got it online at Musician's Friend, at approx 50 bux just after Christmas 2009.

    I like the size, the 2 jacks, the amount of adjustment on such a small unit. It fits VERY snugly in the jack of my current knock-around bass,(Rogue LX205B Series II)Could carry it in a pocket or in the guitar case, as compared to my Carvin stack... Which you could't...

    Nothing to dislike so far...

    Made of metal/plastic and seems pretty solid, but I wouldn't want to try to break pavement with it... Treat it as you would ANY peice of quality equipment.

    So far it has done everything I was told it would do and what I expect it to do.

    I rate it Doubleplusgood.

    This handy gadget is made to look like the classic diamond-grillecloth Vox amp heads that the Beatles made popular. It's designed wit 90-degree angled 1/4' plug to be plugged straight into your bass. An aux input and headphones out allow you to play along with music without having to drag even a small practice amp long. Normal and FX channels. Runs on AAA zinc-carbon batteries (included) or alkalines. I've played bass for 45 years.

    The amPLug is brand new but I found a dealer who had picked one up at NAMM 2010. List price is $64, street $45. Didn't buy it because I have a headphone amp already.

    The amPLug is brand new but I found a dealer who had picked one up at NAMM 2010. List price is $64, street $45. Didn't buy it because I have a headphone amp already.

    It's tiny -- fits in a gig bag easily or even in a shirt pocket. It does what it promises: easy access to practicing or playing along with music without bugging your neighbors. sound in the normal channel is quite good. FX? Meh ...

    The FX sound -- selected with a switch -- is not that great, basically distortion. Switch is on the bottom of the unit -- hard to access when plugged in. Although other reviewers stated that the unit popped out of the bass jack easily, that didn't happen to me.

    Appears to be solid.

    If you need a low-cost headphone amp that will accept a CD/MP3 player, the Vox amPLug Bass Headphone Amp could be the one for you. Inexpensive --around $50 -- it plugs directly into your bass for silent practice. If you travel and spend lots of time in hotel rooms, this could be ideal. Decent sound from its normal channel, less than ideal from the FX channel. I rate it 3 because of reports from other reviewers that the unit pops out of the guitar jack, although that didn't happen to me.

    Similarly, the jack 6.5 is too short by at least 1.5 mm, which prevents a return to the means taken on the edge of some low, and made false contacts even on flat bass taken of "facade", and even more strange, as the tip of the plug 6.5 does not touch the bottom of the female on the guitar or on a homemade extension cord, the sound from the MP3 comes out at all from the headphones! Why do that, I do not know anything but when you touch the tip with your finger it works better (but still very bad). The form 6.5 is also very mobile and should be tripatouillée to let the sound of the bass.

    To summarize: the sound of the bass is achieved by tinkering, that of the MP3 is like a walkman at least from the drone doom recorded on a 4-track in 1980 in the woods, at a very low volume and still cut without fiddling the cards.

    In short, avoid unless conclusive test. I tried with different cables, plugs, mounts, springs, and I even disassembled and resoldered an extension, without success.

    UTILIZATION

    it's simple, you put a battery, you turn, you drink a beer and playing.
    what's cool is that you can take to Macca or nino Ferrer, because you can connect the sound output anything on the Amplug, and presto, After a few rglages , immertion total. in addition, with the headphones on, we can sing because no agreement. Please note, if other ...
    trs good to train, I think.

    SOUND QUALITY

    well, it's not so bad, it works well with all headphones (I tried with headphones Misr open and closed sennheiser headphones), a precision or HOFNER is ok, but I can not find the sound vox I expected, I have not tried with Aut'Chose ... except a Farfisa organ and a tlcaster: a marchetrs well, really well trs.

    rglages allow the game to the fingers and mdiator, I do not know slapper, my 4-string basses have only short, I'm not funky or handjob, DSOL for fans, it's not with me they will be an IDE.

    Intgr the compressor is unnecessary for me is by writing the résumé that I remembered that there was one!



    OVERALL OPINION

    I have 3 months (40 euros), and yrflchissant, I used almost every day ... the battery is good, once, by the way!
    before I had the headphone output of a transistor fender, but I sold. Amplug so I bought the headset to play, and this is my first bass vox!
    I play bass "for real" on an AC30 or a bassman. I thought naively find the sound of the AC30, but it is not the case, the attack is quite similar, which is surprising, but the sound is more round, pleased ^ ^ ot as bassman.
    the style of the case is vintage fashion (not bad), strong enough, as are connections.
    In conclusion, the report quality price is ok, sound ok, functions ok. To find more, I think it will be less simple and more expensive!

    I is not need two Amplug, but I think to try the m ^ th typ AC30 model that exists for my tl.
