The Vox AmPlug AC30 is a small, portable practice guitar amplifier. Although it bears the name AC30, it really doesn't sound like a real AC30. You simply plug this into your guitar, plug your headphones into this, and you're good to go. It is designed to be a practice amp, and really can't be used for anything else that I can think of. It is powered by two AAA batteries. In addition to the headphone jack, it also has an aux jack to plug a CD or Mp3 player into so you can play along with music if you want to.


There isn't much to know at all about using the Vox AmPlug AC30. Once you've plugged your guitar and headphones in, you're good to go. Just control the three parameters of gain, tone, and volume, to your liking and that's all there is to it. The manual is really simple and really just outlines the obvious, so I don't believe it is necessary.


While I won't say that the sound of the Vox AmPlug AC30 is anything to write home about, for what it is to be used for it does the job just fine. It certainly doesn't sound like an AC30, but I doubt anyone was expecting it to anyway. The bottom line with the sound is that it amplifies your guitar sound, making it easy to play your electric on the go without needing a separate amp. It's also great if you want to play without disturbing anyone around you with loud noise. So while I wouldn't expect much from it's sound, it's definitely suitable for practicing.


I wouldn't recommend the Vox AmPlug AC30 in place of a real practice amp, but in addition to having a real amp around, the AmPlug AC30 can definitely be a useful tool. It's sound quality is about what you would expect it to be, which isn't very good, but this most likely isn't the main concern for someone looking into getting one of these. I don't know how the AC30 model compares to the other AmPlugs that they have, but I would imagine that they are all in the same vein. I do wish that this was a few bucks less, but I guess it isn't too expensive. As far as products of this type goes, this is one of the best that I've used, but I'd still only recommend it if it's something that you really need.
