Vox debuts Joe Satriani signature amPlug
(Dave Molter | Posted 2010-09-03)
VOX Amplification expands its range of amPlug headphone guitar amplifiers with the new Joe Satriani signature model, which borrows sounds from the VOX / Joe Satriani series of signature effect pedals. The amPlug series of palm-sized headphone guitar amps makes it easy to enjoy great guitar/bass sounds at home or on the go.
Featuring a bright red body, the Joe Satriani amPlug delivers the acclaimed sound of Satriani’s custom rig – distortion pedal through a high-gain tube amplifier, followed by a delay – and reproduces the settings created by Satriani himself. Inspired by the distortion circuitry of the VOX / Joe Satriani Satchurator pedal, the amPlug Joe Satriani preserves the player’s “pick attack” to create an articulate, melodic and playable distortion.
• Joe's signature lead tone with your choice of delay on or off
• Distortion tone with superb dynamic response, inspired by the Satchurator
• Analog-style delay with Joe’s filter & EQ, inherited from the Time Machine
• Plugs straight into your electric guitar, so you can instantly enjoy great sound through your headphones
• Convenient and portable with up to 11 hours of battery operation
• AUX input jack lets you jam along to tunes on your CD/MP3 player
The amPlug series of palm-sized headphone guitar amps make it easy to enjoy great guitar/bass sounds at home, in your room, or anywhere. This lineup is now joined by the amPlug Joe Satriani signature model, which borrows freely from the VOX/Joe Satriani line of signature pedal effects.
Users can activate the delay with the flip of a switch. Inherited from the analog-style “Lo-Fi mode” of the VOX / Joe Satriani Time Machine delay pedal, the delay features Satriani’s distinctive EQ settings, combining both high-pass and low-pass filters.
The AUX input jack allows users to plug their CD/MP3 player right into the amPlug Joe Satriani and jam along with Satriani tunes or any favorite music. The amPlug’s extreme play-anywhere portability is enhanced with up to eleven hours of battery life.
Users simply plug the amPlug Joe Satriani directly into their electric guitar, connect their headphones, and start playing, using Joe Satriani's expansive tone. The optional amPlug Cabinet (sold separately) can be accommodated to create a miniature amp stack.
The VOX amPlug Joe Satriani will be available November 2010 with a U.S. MSRP of $49.99.
