I'm looking for something to play at my school during spare.
I was leaning towards a vox amplug (probably the ac30 one but maybe the classic rock one)
If you have tried the amplugs what were your impressions?
Also which did you find nicer the ac30 one or the classic rock one? (I play blues and classic rock mostly, very happy with my peavey classic 30)
Also if you didn't like the amplugs can you reccomend something else? (very quiet and portable)?

Pocket Pods are good if it's not out of your range, they're small and have pretty good sound. I've never tried an Amplug so I can't compare the two.

maybe try to save for a pocket pod, although a bit out of the price range. you can get different effects aside from amp modeling and distortion.

Two super reverbs in stereo /jk

Pods are great if you're willing to spend the money. Handy for recording and such too so it's not a one trick kind of thing.

I've got my classic 30 + pedals and a mixer with an sm57 for recording. Just for playing on my spare at school would the pod be worth it?

yes. it's also very useful when you're travelling.

You should definitely try one out if you can, they're very versatile, have a built in tuner, 3-band EQ, good stuff.

yea, the microcube. i dont know what type of tone you're aiming for but in my case, if i was in your position i'd get it because it sounds good, its cheap, its small, and you still somehow get more overdrive than most amps.

I've got the Vox Amplug AC-30 model. It was $37 US new, so you should be able to find one to easily fit your budget. It's got by far the best tone of any battery powered headphone amp I've tried. If you don't need to be able to play for other people (it's just got a headphone out), it will more than suit your practice needs. There are three models available, the AC30, a classic British voiced model, and a modern metal model. I haven't actually heard the other two, but the AC30 sounds great with a wide range of sounds, from vintage clean to fairly high gain rock. It also has a line input so you can plug a CD player or MP3 player in to play along. I would suggest getting an amplug or something in a similar price range, and save your money for your stage setup.

Dude, this thread is a month old, why the hell are you bumping it?

I don't know, I guess I just thought, this being an internet forum where people post questions about guitar equipment, expecting help from people with experience with that equipment, and I have some experience with this particular equipment, and further input which I believe is quite relevant in this case, I figured I might actually try to use this knowledge to help someone instead of going around whining that I now have to scroll past one more old heading in my incredibly busy schedule of browsing internet forums?

Yeah, but it's been a month, I think the TS has probably got it sorted out.
