Hotone Ampero Amp Modeler & Multi-Effects Guitar Processor

Gearank Recommendation

The Hotone Ampero appeared on our recommended list for Compact Multi-Effects as Headphone Amps from January 2021 until June 2022.

Overview

Thanks to Hotone's SHARC digital signal processing architecture, the Ampero is a compact multi-effects pedal that can do quite a lot more.

For the price, you can use 9 effects simultaneously from a line up of 200+ effects. It also lets you choose from over 60 amp models, 60 cab models, and it even has 10 slots for 3rd Party IR loading.

And with its floor pedal form factor, this is a guitar processor that's equally at home on stage or being used for quiet practice. It can even double as a USB audio interface for direct recording.

Other features include built-in drum machine and looper, which together with a good set of headphones, will let you spice up your practice further, without disturbing the people around you.

The main point of recommending the Hotone Ampero as a guitar headphone amplifier is that this is an all-in-one quality solution for amplification and effects needs - and can easily serve as your main rig for recording or stage performance.
