Vox have announced two new models in their popular amPlug
range of portable headphone amplifiers - amPlug Lead
and amPlug Bass
. Hereâ€™s the details directly from their press releaseâ€¦
- Headphone guitar/bass amps that instantly give you serious sound by plugging directly into your guitar/bass.
- "Lead" delivers hi-gain lead guitar sounds, plus a digital delay effect.
- "Bass" features a full-range bass sound with a compressor/boost effect.
- Totally analog design faithfully simulates the circuitry response of the original amp.
- Battery-powered operation lets you play anywhere.
- AUX input jack allows jam sessions with your CD/MP3 player.
The amPlug series received wide-ranging acclaim from guitarists around the world for delivering incredible guitar tone in a pocket-sized unit. Now, the existing range is joined by two new units. "Lead" is based on a US-made high-gain boutique amp, further modified for lead guitar. It also contains a digital delay effect, delivering a huge, spatial sound that could not be previously obtained, and giving you a rich and full-fledged lead sound that you can play anytime and anywhere. For the bassist, "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. .
