Vox Amp Plugs:
As guitarists, we are used to being told to “Turn it Down!!!” or “Can’t you make that racket in another room?”…….
It’s something we get used to from an early age.
Now of course as an Electric guitar player, you have the option of sitting and playing ‘unplugged’, and this will no doubt allow you to practise the mechanics of your guitar playing, but what we Reeeeally want is to be able to practise the dynamics and sonic elements of our playing, and thats why we need amps, preferably turned up loud….
Well, not any more…..
These little beauties are made by Vox and are almost perfect for the Electric guitarist who wants to practise and hear his instrument at volume, without disturbing those around him. They come in all sorts of models from Clean Fender Twin to Very heavy Metal, and include Blues and Classic rock, and theres also a signature model from one Mr Joe Satriani.
Each has some basic control over the sound and includes a socket into which an iPod or iPhone or mp3 player can be plugged, thus allowing you to play to backing tracks of your choice.
But here’s the kicker, they sound really good.
Once you’ve got your headphones on you’re immersed in a pleasantly loud environment, where you can Pinch harmonics, dive bomb, volume swell, indeed all the stuff you can’t do just sat unplugged, and the best bit…..
The price….around £30.00.
Seriously, this is a must for all you guys who own a nice amp, but very rarely get it out in the house to practice on, and thats a lot of you….
I know ‘cos I’m one.
