iamqman's review"Not Bad"

Vox amPlug Lead
This might be the best sounding of the pocket amps. It has a great voicing geared for lead playing with the added digital delay within the unit. The sound mimics the tone you would get from heavy loaded amp stacks tailor for metal and hard rock music.

For me the tone from the classic rock amplug is similar to this one but with the added midrange for the lead tone as well as the digital delay. There is a little more gain added to this one as well. It has a great tone and voice for hard rock and metal. You don't have to play rock with this though, just roll back the guitar's volume and then the thing cleans up a little bit and has more or a low gain sound.

This thing has a rich and warm heavy gain tone that is great for single not lead playing. It works well with rhythm playing as well. It sound good not matter what guitar you use with it. I prefer a Superstrat or a regular Fender Strat so you get that sweet sizzle and not clarity.


A fantastic pocket amp that can go anywhere with you. If you need a quiet amp that will be silent for practice jamming in your home or office. Just close your door and grab your guitar along with your headphones and you won't disturb anyone around you.

At new these units come in at around $50 which is a great price for something of this quality. I recommend thise device to anyone who need a to go amp that is silent and fits in your drawer.

Vox amPlug Lead
3 wheel adjustable volume gain and outline


I use it as a preamp directly to my sound card be careful this material is fragile and more can be put in his pocket c is easier than walking with his amp


the sound quality is amazing to see demo on you tube this little simulator has not a plethora of sound palette I mean by (the light refrain), but otherwise the rest hard rock and blues well muscled no problem singing it very musical I sometimes use a classic SansAmp I just put before and I can get a clearer sound lighter but frankly it's a killer


I put 10 and then not talking about the c is completely crazy crazy to have something like that for 39 euros

Vox amPlug Lead
taken to
headphone jack
delay included! (An echo)
can connect an ipod eg mp3 and play with his guitar above +
it is for work pieces in the evening etc.


everything is simple


there is a huge gain!
suitable for all rock music, hard rock, heavy metal, but it is not a sound dug special metal
No, it's still rock high gain


few years
I compared with the Satriani model that gives his sound, but there is less gain
here are a lot more gain, it is not comparable because it starts very early in the race gain
for me, it's perfect
it surely has a mandatory background noise still
you can really have fun with

Vox amPlug Lead
See site vox


Simple configuration

No need for manual

Editing sounds: CHILD'S PLAY!


There are two possibilities: the pure distortion with the sound of the Vox or with delay distortion for leads

it sounds very good, I am fortunate to have a good headphone (Beyer Dynamics)


I use it for a few months
