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.
