Vox has just launched the third generation of its nifty pocket-sized travel amp, the amPlug3. Smaller than your average pedal and sitting at the end of the 3/4" jack input, the latest version – announced ahead of NAMM 2024 – adds new features to its seven-strong range.

Each mini amp is designed specifically for use with headphones, much to the delight of your neighbours. The range sets out to authentically emulate a host of classic amps.

A freelance writer with a penchant for music that gets weird, Phil is a regular contributor to Prog, Guitar World, and Total Guitar magazines and is especially keen on shining a light on unknown artists. Outside of the journalism realm, you can find him writing angular riffs in progressive metal band, Prognosis, in which he slings an 8-string Strandberg Boden Original, churning that low string through a variety of tunings. He's also a published author and is currently penning his debut novel which chucks fantasy, mythology and humanity into a great big melting pot.
