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.

Bought this on recommendation and still learning to use its features but very happy with size and weight!!



Good price, lots of options, wish I compared with other amp


Bought it as a practice amp... many choices on sound, still trying to find the sound I'm looking for.



Great amp for practice and also small group jams. impressed.


Despite its small size, this amp has a really warm and surprisingly big sound. The onboard modeling is pretty accurate and you can further shape the tones to get a great sound. Perfect for travelling as can also run off batteries for hours and hours and hours...



Great little amp


Works great especially like the mic input



Killer battery amp!!!


Great battery powered amp! More than loud enough, great amp models & effects.



Nice fun little amp


Great little amp. Love being able to be more mobile with my playing. Clean sounds are impressive. Distortion settings are just ok but certainly sound good enough to keep the amp. I also just use the amp as a music speaker when I work out. I hook my iPad up to it just to play music. Overall very happy with this product.



Versatile little thing


I was seconds away from buying a Boss Mini Katana before I seen this. I played the two side by side and this one was louder. Plus this amplifier has more tones (10 on the Vox vs. 3 on the Mini Katana). The final decision was the AC adapter was included where the Boss Mini Katana didn't include one and it cost more than the Vox. The tones are pretty cool and even plugged in my acoustic electric guitar to it and it sounded good. I just wanted a smaller amp to use so I don't offend my neighbors at night. The salesman at Sam Ash was very nice and patient with me as I tested both amps out, asking questions and any other needs I had.

Almost makes my other amps & pedals obsolete


This little gem of a VOX amplifier can make more voices than my larger amplifier from a venerable American brand with a single-15 in. speaker and 40 watts of power. It's utterly amazing what sounds this small-sized giant-voiced amp can produce with 3 watts through a 5 in speaker. Don't underestimate it's voice! Jamming with other musicians, you soon learn it's got power to spare, and can hold its own among the big dogs. Like to stay up late and rehearse with jam tracks? No problem, you have a line in and line out/headphone jack so you can jam 'til dawn or at any time without bothering family or neighbors. I'm not a busker, but this amp is advertised to run for quite a long while on six AA batteries. Power supply came included with mine for us non-busker types. Couldn't be happier with this little dude. Best money I ever spent on a 7 x 9 x 8.5 in. mini-amp. At a little over $100 U.S., all I can say is what a bargain!

Vox Mini 3 Ivory Amp


Love this amp! So much in such small package. And LOUD!!! Use it for guitar and singing practice so far...mic input is why I chose this amp. I see real possibilities for more uses like small venue performances. Modest price for all you get with this little soundbox! Has some nice onboard effects but I use it with my guitar pedals as well--sounds great either way! Have both the black and ivory colors...both look great but ivory color really pops! Really like how my telecaster sounds on this mini amp! Very happy with this amp!

Portable Harp Amp


Nice little amp I got for playing harmonica outside at camp and for that the Vox works well. I played with the delay and the spring reverb and they work fine. I have not played the amp with any other musicians and the amp was designed for guitar not harp. I would buy this amp again.
