This is the type of amp that you hang on your bet buckle and walk around the room jamming. This is about the size of a cell phone and has mini speaker in it with surprisingly two channels. The is for the person who wants to hide from his boss in his office and still be able to practice away without being disturbed.

The sound in this pocket amp isn't great but that really is only secondary to the purpose of it. There is a huge market for these little pocket amp for people to use sitting back in their chair chilling out playing. Marshall, Vox, and Fender have all contributed to the trend of pocket amps for practicing.


There is only two knobs that control the sound of the amp. It has a volume and tone a channel select and a head phone out for silent usage. It even has a built in tuner for tuning on the go.

* Speaker: 4" Orange Design
* Controls: Volume / Tone
* Features: Integrated Tuner
* Headphone Out: Yes
* Construction: Metal Chassis / Wood Case
* Power Supply:9 Volt Battery (CR3PWR


The sound is cool since it has two channels of clean and gain. It isn't going to sound like your Orange AD30 or anything but it looks like an Orange amp and it hangs on your belt nicely.

With only two knobs just turn the gain all the way up and the volume as desired. That is pretty basic as it gets.

Try it with any guitar that you have. There really is no right or wrong or better sounding options here. They are all going to sound pretty much the same. Again this is not quality tone we are talking about....we are talking about practicing with a pocket amp. You probably won't hate this thing if you just going for the easy of lounge jamming.


This thing is fun and that is really all there is to say about it. Not going to be a main amp for gigs or anything like that. Just sitting at home or at the office plucking away from boredom.

I would recommend this to anyone bored at work and has their own office. It does have a headphone jack so it can be silent. Just close the door grab your guitar and headphones and kill some time. Don't take it too seriously. They are priced at $60 and that is pretty fair for what it is going to go you.
