Since clean tone lets you hear the nuances of your guitar playing better, it is ideal for improving your technique.

It is also great for those who want to develop song ideas in places where you can't get too noisy.

Other features include built-in effects (three types of chorus, delay and reverb), auto-power off, folding plug mechanism, and an aux in for jamming along with your favorite track.

Thanks to its combination of great sound and portability, the Vox amPlug 2 Clean continues to rake in positive reviews. Bedroom guitarists love how it has helped increase their practice time, while those who constantly travel found it to be an invaluable tool for keeping their chops up while on the go. One user describes the sound as shockingly good, and this is a good representation of how it exceeded the expectations of many.


There are a few who are not too happy with the built-in effects, wishing that there was a way to tweak them. Others wish that Vox develop a similar model but with built-in rechargeable battery for convenience.
