    5-Watt Guitar Amplifier, Portable Recorder, and USB Audio Interface

    You will always be ready for a performance or recording when you have this 5-watt Guitar Amplifier, Portable Recorder, and USB Audio Interface from Monoprice!

    This little 5-watt amp delivers a big sound with plenty of loudness and clarity for ad hoc outdoor performances. It has a built-in guitar distortion effect, so you can get great sound without needing external processors. In addition to the 1/4" guitar cable input, it features a 3.5mm microphone input, so you can add vocals to your performance.

    A 3.5mm auxiliary input allows you to connect a smartphone or music player. The music will then play through the amp with your guitar and/or vocals in the mix. If you don't want to carry around an extra device, just plug your microSD card into the amp and play your music directly. It supports playback of mp3, wav, and wma audio files.

    The microSD card is also used for audio recordings. You can record your guitar performance, along with any mic or aux inputs, to 128 Kbps mp3 files on the microSD card.

    An added feature is the ability to plug the amplifier into a PC or Mac using the included mini USB cable. The amplifier is true plug 'n play, so no drivers disks are needed. Your PC or Mac will automatically install the drivers it needs for a USB speaker system.

    The amplifier is powered by an internal 1500mAh battery.

    Nice little unit

    I bought this for use with a bass guitar. I am guessing it performs better with a normal elec guitar. My only real disappointment with it is that even after turning off the guitar effect (both the dial and the mode) it still doesn't sound very clean - sounds like there is still a distortion effect of some sort being applied.

    Bought another

    Pros: Sound effects, Clip, Recharge, Records, Great service response while purchasing the second unit for a friend. The unit arrived with a memory card issue. The service person replied with a supporting email to return the unit. The shipping for the return was covered by Monoprice. As soon as the replaced unit arrives, I'm at 100% and my friend will have something cool to share.

    Cons: No rubber case or edging on the unit. I keep mine inside my pocket or clip it on my guitar strap.

    For the price, this little amp is much better than what cost $10 more for from the music store. The store bought amp without any guarantee is tough enough to take short falls but the unit is made of wood and trimmed in rubber. So it can take a hit but it does not record, recharge or offer any effects. The store bought unit doesn't have a clip to stay put so it falls too often. Too bad this clip on amp does not have a dedicated record/erase button I would give it a 5.

    Lost my belt clip

    Pros: it definitely is a good amp for how little it is and I recommend it for everyone. Great sound will come out of it if you play with the volume/tone knobs including the guitar ones. The belt clip is perfect for their 1.5 foot 1/4 inch cable witch is a big solution to cluttered cables on the floor. you can even walk around without worrying about the cables.

    Cons: if you want it loud it will get loud but the sound may be a little off since you have to turn tone all the way up to get it loud enough to fill a large space

    I love using this with my california classic and 1.5 foot guitar cable however i let my brother borrow it and he lost the belt clip so i can't do that anymore. I just want to ask monoprice if they can send me another belt clip.

    Better than Expected

    • Barneys pick,
    •  Alexandria, VA

    Pros: Battery operated. When turned on it lights up.

    Cons: The switch for recording should not be combined with other features. I would like to record a stop on a single switch. I would also like to control the file interface better but for the price this is better than expected.

    For the price, I have no complaint. It arrived and worked just as documented. For something that sold under $25, it is just right.

    Excellent, perfect!

    Pros: Convenient, practical, easy to use, records/plays back, totally portable, excellent

    Cons: None really

    First off, if your looking for great quality sound out of this little speaker than look for something else, although you probably wont find anything that sounds great in a small size anyway nor less than the price of a Lamborghini!, but for $20 this lil guy does exactly what it's intended to do and does it great!
    It sounds good through headphones and also works fine if I patch it through my small practice amp or home stereo.
    I can record my daily practice sessions and song ideas and than playback and listen to it all and work on any mistakes or needed changes, I can also swap my ideas to my laptop and edit the files and work on entire songs, this lil guy is VERY versatile! It has been PERFECT in every way for me since it arrived last week! Like one reviewer stated it would have been nice to have a file delete option on this unit itself but, it's really no big deal that it doesn't, I wasn't looking for 296 track recording studio quality but when I play back files they sound excellent enough! In my opinion this was really well worth getting and so glad I did! It also being rechargeable that will save me a fortune on batteries! It really is a great deal and so convenient!
    Thanks Monoprice! You guy's always Rock! \m/
