Product Description

Plug In, Rock Out!

The headphone guitar amp that lets you enjoy serious guitar sound, fast. Jamming late at night? Don’t want to wake the neighbors? The amPlug Series of palm-sized headphone guitar amps make it easy to enjoy great guitar sounds at home, in your room, or anywhere. Simply plug the amPlug directly into any guitar, attach a pair of headphones, and you’re ready! Use the AUX input jack to plug any CD/MP3 player right into the amPlug and jam along. Connect the optional amPlug Cabinet (sold separately) to create a miniature amp stack to share the sound with friends.

amPlug Bass

'Bass' is modeled on VOX's classic AC100 bass amp, and expands its potential with a full-range tone that supports today's bass sounds. A compressor/boost effect provides not just compression but also a thick overdrive sound, giving you the perfect tones for performing in any style. Careful attention has been paid to the sound quality, and a high-quality FET buffer circuit has been used to obtain even greater dynamic range.

Practice in private with top-notch amplifier tone for complete sonic satisfaction

Need a few minutes alone with your tone? Your amPlug is ready. Up all night working on ideas? Killing time on the tour bus? amPlug is there. Want to polish your solo before that big gig? Don't wanna hear the other kids in Study Hall? amPlug is your answer. All-new analog modeling techniques endow amPlug with no-sacrifice sound satisfaction. For that classic, British VOX top-boost tone, check out the amPlug AC30. A pair of AAA alkalines will keep you alone with your tone for up to twenty hours.

The sound is very good, much better than other guitar headphone amps I've tried.
Thom Barclay
If you want to really practice without disturbing anyone around you, I would absolutely recommend this headphone amp, immediately.
Aaron Mills
You can plug your ipod in it and play along your music, you'll just need one of those aux wires.

I recently purchased the Vox AMPlug for Bass, because it was the most compact headphone amp I could find for my travel bass. It truly is a great headphone amp with great sound and great FX. It's got that groovy and classic Vox AC100 bass amp sound that truly inspires. With the right headphones/earphones, I worry that I'm blasting my neighbors. Thankfully they can't hear a thing.

The only initial negative is that the construction is flimsier than it looks. The battery door barely stays on, and the gain, tone and volume "wheels" are hard to see and access.

Aside from that, I highly recommend it.

I purchased this because I just started playing bass again this past year and all the practice amps under $200 just sounded weak or farty to me, and I tried quite a few! I needed something to tide me over so I can practice and play along with CD's etc until I drop the cash on good combo at least 50 watts and 12" speaker equipped.

Tone: I honestly enjoy the tone from this little headphone amp more than some of those 20 watt combos I have tried out. I have a Jazz bass with passive pickups, and this headphone accurate amplifies that Fender tone with just the amount of "Coloration". My only complain is that in standard mode the volume ius just not as loud as I would have liked. Its totally usable, but if you want it blaring loud it just doesn't get there. Not with passive pickups. More on that later...

Controls: Gain, Tone, and Volume. Simple as that. I like the seperate gain knob. Seems out of place on a bass amplifier but its nice to play the gain and the master volume off of each other for the right amount of gain / attack / volume. The tone knob offers a drastic range but to me the sweet spot is right in the middle, and the upper and lower ends of the spectrum sound strange muted or plucky.

FX: The switch has 3 settings, "Standby" (which is off), then "On" for standard mode, and then "FX" mode. Here you have gain boost and some light / moderate compression. You get far more volume from the unit in this mode, but have to dial back the gain to get a normal clean bass tone that seems usable to me. I have found I like the standard mode for normal solo playing /practicing as the tone has a nice balance of warm / punchiness. Then when I plus in my mp3 player to jam or I'm in a noisy environment I use the FX mode for the boosted sound.

This is a great-sounding, simple solution for my bass practice. I like to practice in the morning before my wife wakes up, and hooking up to an amp with headphones is an option but this device makes things so much more portable. Toss this in a gig bag and you'll be able to practice anywhere.
The quality is good-to-moderate. Switches and dials feel a bit too cheap, making it seem a little bit like a 'made in China' kind of product, but not so cheaply made that it will just fall apart - unless you're pretty hard on your gear.

I like that I can hook up my iPod, cellphone, or metronome to the AUX input jack for practicing.

Here's a big warning, though: I have an Ibanez which has the angled, recessed 1/4" jack in the body and this WOULD NOT PLUG IN because of the unusual jack layout. The body of this thing is shaped such that you can't plug in any more than about 80% of the way because of the location of the bridge and the shape of the bass body. It doesn't work at all. If your Ibanez has this jack layout, you'll need some kind of pigtail/extender cord or a 1/4"-to-1/4" adapter. I didn't want *another* cable, so I found a 1/4" adapter to use. Another warning if you need to go this route: MAKE SURE you purchase an adapter which is mono-to-mono (tip & sleeve - your best bet) or a stereo-to-stereo (tip-ring-sleeve) or an adapter which has a stereo male tip and a mono female jack on it. I purchased a mono-male-to-stereo-female and as you might have guessed, this shorts the signal to ground because the 'ring' connector in the female jack portion of the adapter is common with the tip connection, causing a short. An adapter like this should run you about $3-5 and I found one here on Amazon: Monoprice Gold Plated Metal 6.35mm (1/4") Mono Plug to 6.35mm (1/4") Mono Jack Adaptor

More than often, you need a silent solution to practice bass wherever, and this product makes it possible. Although the strings obviously still make noise, it's perfect for those sleepless nights when you want to play and not bother anyone in the house. You can plug your ipod in it and play along your music, you'll just need one of those aux wires. Careful with the volume, as it overpowers some headphones and you really don't want to be blowing expensive headphones

Does what I need it to, when I need it. What's better than that? More features, of course. But then you'd pay more for it. If you're looking for inexpensive that delivers, this is it.

I want to start off positive here because I am giving it 2.5 stars...
I have had this unit for just shy of 4 years now and it still works, even after bouncing around the inside of every case, gigbag, backpack, and rucksack or assault pack (yes, I am in the Army, and yes, I took this on deployment haha) I've owned! It is very solid and durable if you're not catching on!

When I first bought it, I thought it was so amazing to hear my bass in my headphones without bugging anyone else, and I could go for walks around the neighborhood having a silent jam as I went -- pretty freakin sweet!
But the tone was always an issue for me. It always sounded SO dark and muddy that it was hard to enjoy the sound of my own bass sometimes. I found one or two settings that gave a DECENT tone but you roll one control wheel the wrong way in the slightest and you lose all clarity in sound.

The "Bass" AmPlug special feature is a "fx - compression" circuit. I wasn't thrilled with it initially because it seemed to have no use whatsoever on my basses aside from blasting me with WAY too much sound no matter HOW low I turned the controls. I figured at the time that I had cheaper gear, and nothing active, so maybe that was the function issue. Nope. I own a beautiful, 1976 Gibson Ripper and a pristine, 2008 Musicman Stingray5 HH....these are my two best basses. One passive, one active (respectively). Both sound like complete garbage through this unit with the compression switch active.

In the end, I bought mine when they cost no more than $20, and it has lasted my nearly 4 years now, 3 of which have been in the Army (so mucho abuse).
