Vox amPlug Headphone Amplifiers - 2008 - 2013

The Vox amPlug series was a line up of nine head phone amplifiers for guitar or bass designed to plug directly into the input jack of the instrument. Seven of the amPlug models included analog modeling to simulate the performance of a specific amplifier. Another amPlug model was modeled after the tones of the legendary guitarist Joe Satriani. Yet another amPlug model provided an acoustic guitar simulation.

Each amPlug offered up to 27 hours of battery life from two AAA alkaline batteries. All models included gain, volume and tone controls. The amPlug also included a 3.5mm head phone jack and a 3.5mm input jack for mp3 playback. Dimensions: 3.39" x 3.15" x 1.22." Weight: 1.41 oz.
