  • Vox Amplug?

    Hey, how many of you guys own one of these? I tried the Classic Rock model the other day, and it was pretty sweet! Thinking about getting one, but just wondered if anyone had tried the AC30 model...

    I would get one if they had all three models put together in one thing

      I have the classic rock one, I think it's great. Very useful at night when the wife is asleep.

        I have the AC30 and the metal version. The AC30 version rocks, so hard. Amazing little thing. Metal version is great as well , just somewhat muddy.
        Breaus, check out my youtube channel. pls.

          I have the AC30 one, which is meant to be the best one. I started another thread on this a while back.

          I'm afraid I don't find it to be very good and hardly ever use it- quite expensive for what it is, very limited and tinny sounding. It's OK-ish, but I would rather plug some phones into my amp. I guess if you were on the hoof somewhere it would be handy.

            My Classic rock does not sound overly tinny. But this is a small travel amp, it's not designed to blow your socks off, it does what it's meant to do.

              I've got the AC30, and mine is in no way tinny - there's tons of bass on tap (although not any way to rein it in, which is probably it's biggest drawback). The gain goes quite high, but it does react to volume adjustments quite nicely.

              For the price, I highly recommend it, especially if you plan to use it along with an mp3 player (or anything else you can plug into it, for that matter). I may get around to recording some direct clips of it some time if you'd like...

                      I bought all three. I only kept the Metal.
                      -Classic rock did not have enough gain. I couldn't get into Van Halen territory.
                      -AC30 was pretty cool but sounded too Brian Mayish. It was good, but that sound gets tiresome to me.
                      -The Metal does a good metal but doesn't clean up for ****************.
                      Another complaint is the knobs are waaaay to easy to move and the settings change unintentionally.
                      Battery life is good also.
                      In the end, I bought a PocketPod with rechargable batteries and couldn't be happier. Way more versatile and sounds much better with all of the available effects.
                      It's slightly bigger, but I use it like this

                        I looked on the website and they're coming out with a 4th model "LEAD" that is supposed to be modeled on a US High Gain/ Boutique....

                        guessing it'll be premiered at the NAMM show? Can't find clips......anyone?

                          and tinny sounding.

                          no way. sounds fine with Sennheiser HD540 headphones.
