WINTER NAMM SHOW, ANAHEIM, CA, January 17, 2008 –– VOX exhibits the amPlug™ palm-sized, battery powered headphone guitar amplifier. Users can plug it directly into their guitar (via its built-in 1/4” plug), and enjoy professional-quality guitar sounds anywhere, anytime. Additionally, an AUX input jack allows the user to jam along with an iPod or MP3 player.
The amPlug is available in three different sound styles: amPlug AC30, for signature VOX AC30 top boost tone; amPlug Classic Rock, which delivers the sound of a “classic” British 100-Watt head; and amPlug Metal, which is based on a U.S. made high-gain amplifier head that delivers metal high-gain tone. Visually, the amPlug looks like a miniature VOX amplifier, complete with a simulation of the classic VOX black vinyl covering and the famous VOX diamond grill cloth.
Using proprietary analog modeling technology, the amPlug accurately reproduces the complex and warm distortion that is distinctive of a vacuum tube, as well as the powerful high gain produced by a large amp stack, despite its ultra-compact dimensions (3.39” x 3.15” x 1.22”) and weight (1.41oz., not including batteries). It offers up to twenty hours of battery life from 2 AAA batteries.
The VOX amPlug amplifiers are now available with an MSRP of $56.00.
