    Rechargeable Mini Headphone Amplifier for Guitar - Tube Overdrive

    As a musician you know you need to practice regularly to hone your skills and learn new songs. However, you can't always break out the amps and crank up the volume. For those times when quiet is required, you can both practice and hear the amplified output from your instrument using this Rechargeable Mini Headphone Amplifier for Guitar from Monoprice!

    This amplifier is designed to provide amplification to the output of instrument level devices, such as electric guitars and bass guitars. It features a 1/4" TS plug, which plugs directly into your instrument's output. It is powered by an internal, rechargeable battery and has a 3.5mm TRS output for listening with headphones.

    An additional 3.5mm TRS auxiliary input is provided for connecting another audio source, such as an mp3 player. The audio from the Aux jack is mixed with the audio from the guitar so you can play along to an existing recording.

    This amplifier produces a "Tube Overdrive" sound with distortion and delay reminiscent of Classic Rock performances. The amplifier includes analog Gain, Tone, and Volume controls.

    Note: The distortion effect that this amplifier produces means that there will necessarily be some background hiss/noise, even at normal volume levels. If you listen to the amplifier without it being plugged into a guitar, the noise level can be loud and pronounced. However, when it is plugged into a guitar the signal returns to a desirable noise level for playing.

    Very nice but has an issue.

    Pros: Great sound for price. Rechargeable battery is very nice. AUX input is great for playing to music.

    Cons: 1/4" plug too short, Falls out.

    This amp is very nice, even more so when compared to other brands at a much higher price. The 1/4" plug is 1/16" too short so it doesn't click all the way in the guitar. It works fine but will fall out with some movement. If it wasn't for this I would give 4 stars.

    Nothing but echo

    I finally got around to testing this device as it was a lost stocking stuffer. Nothing but echo in this device so it is unusable. It was a great idea though

    Good But

    This is a sweet little device but I have noticed that the 1/4" plug does not extend far enough to clip into the jack of the guitar, so the amp falls out.

    Terrific sound - but a fatal flaw

    Pros: Great sound
    Rechargeable battery
    Shockingly responsive (cleans up if you dial guitar down, breaks upif you slam the strings)
    Unbelievably small and affordable

    Cons: Will not stay connected to guitar

    This little headphone amp has almost everything going for it - surprisingly terrific sound, lots of features (no idea how they crammed volume *and* gain *and* tone controls in there), built-in rechargeable battery. Would clearly be a 5* purchase at two or three times the price, and I'd love to write such a review. Except that the jack simply will not stay plugged in. As much as I want to love this thing, it's inconvenient and irritating to have to stop every 90 seconds to replug and reseat it. And from what I have read from other reviews, this is not a one-off QC issue, it's an inherent design defect. And I've yet to figure out an elegant workaround to keep it in. What a shame!

    The only caveat is that I have a tele with a recessed Electrosocket. Maybe you will have better luck with an LP-style guitars with a flush jack.

    Fun, but...

    Pros: Cheap, easy to use and works as described.

    Cons: Not a hi-end device thus the low price (I paid about 12 bucks) as such it's hard to know how well or how long it might last.

    I really got a kick of this little unit...which so far, works great. I like the ease of controls with the gain and distortion. For my part the delay is fine but clearly this not a tricked out device, just a simple way to play your guitar without the fuss of anything other than a pair of headphones. I use it to practice licks while sitting around away from my little studio. My only concern is that the charge light seems very finicky...sometimes it comes on, sometimes it doesn't. hence, I can't tell if the unit is actually charging or not. Time will tell I guess.
