The next-generation of the MINI3, the definitive portable modeling amplifier featuring VOX's original Bassilator circuit for dramatically enhanced tone!

VOX's proprietary modeling technology from the Valvetronix series, plus compact construction, battery-powered operation, and VOX's sophisticated sense of design have all been combined to make the MINI3 the definitive portable modeling amp - and now it's been dramatically powered-up! Befitting its position as the next-generation amp, it's called the MINI3 G2. It features VOX's original "Bassilator" circuit that delivers tone with powerfully solid lows and a bottom end that will hold up even at low volumes. The quality of the effects has also been greatly improved. With the incredibly portable MINI3 G2, you'll be ready; at home or outdoors.

Extensive range of 11 realistic amp models
The MINI3 G2 delivers 11 accurate and authentic amp models which allow you to play a broad range of styles and genres. Starting with the coveted British VOX tone, the MINI3 G2 also nails sounds from classic vintage, modern high-gain, and rare boutique amps. The acclaimedmodeling technology inherited from the Valvetronix series of amps allows the MINI3 G2 to reproduce the rich, warm sounds associated with tube amps.

The Bassilator Circuit
The newly designed VOX Bassilator circuit enables the amp to produce ultra-low frequencies, well past what the EQ is capable of. This is especially effective on high-gain models where it gives the amp a full, deep sound that’s great for heavier styles of music. In other words, you’ll get a big sound in a small package!

Not just for electric guitar
The “LINE” model gives you a pristine clean tone that’s ideal for use with an acoustic-electric guitar. The natural resonance of your acoustic instrument will shine through for those times when you need some extra sonic support. Additionally, the ability to use line connections from a keyboard or Mp3 player makes the MINI3 G2 a great portable PA system as well.

Easy-to-use effects
The MINI3 G2’s great sounding effects will help put the final touches on your tone. This second generation MINI3 features even better sounding effects than the first. The effects section offers a compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo. There is also a dedicated section for reverb and delay where you can add that extra touch to create your own signature sound. Even beginners will find editing effects easy – a turn of the knob lets you control which effect to use and how much of it you hear. The tap tempo button makes syncing the delay time to the tempo a breeze!

Ultra-portable freedom and mobility
As its name suggests, the MINI3 G2 is very compact and easy to take with you wherever you go. Use the included detachable strap to carry the amp by hand, or connect a guitar strap for over-the-shoulder convenience when your hands are full. The amp weighs a mere 6.61 pounds (3 kg), so you won’t get tired carrying it around town. You can even stop for a practice session or performance on the way! Six AA alkaline batteries provide up to 10 hours of on-the-go power, making it ideal for outdoor use and street performances. Also included is an AC adapter for connecting to a power outlet.

Versatile connections for the singer/performer
In addition to the main guitar input, the MINI3 G2 has a separate mic input, complete with its own volume control and reverb/delay send. Plus, we’ve included a convenient AUX input jack so you can connect your MP3 player or other audio source. Jam along to your favorite tunes, practice those tricky licks, or play with pre-recorded backing tracks for a full-fledged performance – all by yourself!

Continuing the VOX design tradition
Sound quality goes without saying, but VOX's inimitable sense of design is another real attraction of this amp. The MINI3 carries on VOX trademarks such as diamond grille cloth and textured vinyl cladding, making it a tasteful addition to any room. In addition to our proven and popular black, the MINI3 is also available in a vintage-flavored ivory or the classic VOX look with brown diamond grille cloth.

    Comments about Electro-Voice LiveX 12P PA Package:

    After playing acoustic for several years, I bought my first electric along with this amp to run it through about two months ago. Not being able to afford something more expensive, but still wanting something of decent quality, I was glad to see a Vox amp in the price range.

    I don't have much basis for comparison to other similarly sized amps, but I can say that I've been very impressed with this one so far. I like having the different models to play around with, though I typically stick with the AC15, AC30TB, and American Hi Gain, which all sound pretty darn good.

    Utilizing the compression and reverb, I was able to get some nice clean sounds out of the AC models for jazz work, and the American Hi Gain sounds nice for the fuzzy punk sound that I like. I felt pretty comfortable using this for recording a batch of songs recently, and they came out surprisingly well. While it's only a three-watt amp, I've found that the Hi Gain model can get pretty decent volume. I could definitely see using the amp mic'd up for a coffee house gig or similar venue.

    The features on the whole make this a great amp for practicing. Being able to use headphones is great for apartment living and cohabitation. The strap is a little ridiculous and worthless, but you can easily pick the thing up with one hand, so it's not really an issue. I can't speak to the battery life as I've only used it plugged in, but I was told by the Sam Ash salesman that it would last about 8 hours.

    Overall, I'm very happy with this amp and couldn't see upgrading until I can afford an amp that I would keep permanently, such as an actual AC15.

        Small-size amp dovetails with a Kala Traveler Ukulele (electric) and clip-on mic'd harnessed harmonica ...seperate cables plug into the amp, with the harmonica/voice mic feed pure, and all kinds of effects for the uke. I can carry the whole rig on a bicycle. Sound/effects quality is beautiful. I waited for the "classic" design model of the amp with the cool grill and I'm glad I did. I can't imagine something better for the size - it is plenty loud.

          Comments about Electro-Voice LiveX 12P PA Package:

          I use this amp with with a travel guitar that has nice tone, but not much power. I thought i might have to use a guitar unit that I have to boost the sound, and have more tonal choices, but with this amp I don't have to. The simulations are clean, even cranked up all the way, and the effects are very useable. just tweak things the way you want them. Runs on battery power, and with rechargables, this baby is well worth it. The size and portability are cool as well. You probably won't find something with all these features and sound at this price. Get this! It will make you smile.
