Traveling a lot with new job. Looking for something small and portable. Thinking about the vox amplug. Not sure which one though. Also saw a couple of other 1-5 watt portable amps. Any recommendations? Still learning to play. Have a 2009 gibson studio.

A lil Danelectro Honeytone amp may work for you. They sound pretty ...gritty, but works well if you're into that. If you're using headphones I'd go with a mfx with amp modeling. Zoom G3 is at its best with headphones and has all kinds of very easy to use practice features and are the cheapest mfx worth buying imo.

Edit: there's an even cheaper zoom mfx called the "multi-stomp" I think that may work ok for you but I don't think it has a looper or drum guide or other good stuff on the G3.

Also, thats If you're on a strict budget. I'm simple minded and assume everyone is poor like me lol

I don't think you'll find something better than the Yamaha THR series. They're pricey as well--maybe you should consider buying them as your main practice amp.

Have a look at the Roland Micro/Mobile cubes as well. Don't get the Marshall MS or Orange CR/Micro series or you'll regret it.

This, Id prefer a POD for being on the go because they have many different sounds/tones. I think they have one that's even battery powered but I could be wrong.

Amplugs are a toy. I use one at times but it's really just one step up from playing unplugged. It's a bit of fun but it really is a toy. I'd go for either a micro cube or a THR if I were you.
Well actually, I'd go for a Champ and I'd build it myself. But either of the first two would do the deed.
