I just bought the Vox amPlug2 for the bass. I had a very early version of the same device for guitar. I was surprised at how nice it sounded for both guitar and bass; although the advert was for guitar only. I bought it when my 2 year old son (now 8) was receiving chemo and radiation treatments for a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. We spent a lot of time in hospitals between New York City and Boston (about 2.5 years). And we were traveling a lot! I was able to get an awesome clean and distorted sound for both instruments and I was able to groove to music from my iPhone. It was just the thing I needed when things settled or while sitting in waiting rooms. I did a lot of waiting. My son is now healthy, wonderful and as normal as any child. Cancer be gone! Truthfully he's amazing! Aside from the biopsy scars and a few radiation machine aligning tattoos you'd never know he survived such a horrible ordeal. Sadly a friend of mine was recently diagnosed with a terrible form of kidney cancer. He's another git box picker. He will be hospitalized for several weeks for chemo, PT and other treatments (please send my friend good energy, prayers and whatever positive vibes you can muster). Before leaving the house to visit him I tried to think what my buddy would need to keep is mind away from his troubles. He's an electric guitar player and cannot have an amp in his room, then I thought, the Vox amPlug I have! He would love it! For the perfect guitar to jam on in this situation would be my 64' Dan Electro Convertible. Its a low volume acoustic with a lipstick pickup, its cool as hell looking and I figured it would bring him a smile being vintage and all. I included extra batteries, over the ear headphones and a mini cable to hook to his phone. Why am I writing this? Because I just bought the Vox amPlug2 Bass version from the TalkBass store and I can't wait hear it. I am hoping it's just as neat with the guitar as my original "guitar" Vox amPlug. Has anyone here used it?
