Best choice for practice

Amplug is perfect product to me somebody can't have bass amplifier in a small house. Using Amplug, I can practice without bothering other people by loud and unblockable low frequency sound from bass guitar and I can still have good quality sound during practice.
You can get awesome amp-like sound by using it with good studio headphone (mine is AKG K240S) without complicated parameter set. Built in drum patterns are really useful when you need to play with metronome (but no pure metronome mode available, all the 9 types are drum). fold-able plug design let it be compatible to most of bass model types. But don't forget to remove Amplug from bass before you put back you bass on stander or gig bag after practice.
For cons, I did found the apparent hum noise during operating as other review describes. I have tried to mute bass by knobs on my bass but it still exists. Apparently it comes from circuit design, not from bass. To avoid it, I suggest to turn the vol control low under "6" if possible. To elevate bass hearing volume, try to adjust from gain mode. High gain - low volume get low hum. Now I am comfortable without hearing hum during playing. Another cons as I mention above, no pure metronome mode can be selected. For some specific situation I think I might need to practice with pure metronome because too many note from real drum pattern sometimes confuse me.
By the way, I also tried to use Amplug bass with my guitar. It's amazing! It sounds great with fascinating texture especial with single coil pickup. That surprised me more than use with bass!

Tiny Killer Amp!
Julius Jimenez 14.10.2015
This is a cute killer amplifier that will be always available for all the bassists on the go. That bass tone that you always wanted can be accessed anytime anywere.

I really think that this item is underrated because there is no way you can compare this amp to previous, primitive and big headphone amplifiers out there.

It is very easy to use and it can really deliver the analog bass tone you’ve been hearing on recordings. However, this is subjective and depending on your bass and headphones. But in any case, there are tons of potential for this buddy.

Jamming is more fun with this bass amp, and will save you money for bills also. Lol. I love the way it was designed since I can connect my player/computer in AUX slot, then out it to my speaker systems when I’m lazy to use my bass amp. Plus the variable drum patterns and metronome built in options are very brilliant. You can stand and carry your bass, along your drummer (the patterns) which are tempo programmable.


The sound of this amp is really serious, but it is really portable, very ideal choice for any learning or professional bassists. It has 3 gain choices depending on your preference.

The volume and tone knobs are normal but they are very well rounded sound and for a compact unit to deliver this VOX tones will really blow your mind. Honestly, this bass amplug made me more serious about my bass playing.

The unit is foldable and rotating 180 degrees, which will accommodate any plugging areas of different basses. The size also allows you to put the unit in your gig bag and use it whenever there are speakers that can carry the heavy tones it can deliver. This small buddy is really the most convenient item in my kit since there is no cable required, aside from your headphones. Very ideal for warm ups, practice.

This unit also features automatic power-off function which will ensure the span of your battery life.

I highly recommend this amp for all bassist and be sure to get if from Thomann, to ensure the fastest delivery possible and their crazy friendly rates.

By the way, these units are MADE IN JAPAN :)

Awesome
The Bass Noob 05.12.2021
Coming in as an entry level Bass Noob I didn't want to buy a speaker amp which would cost as much or more than the bass, especially not knowing if I would stick with it so this little gizmo is perfect. It works fine. There are some click tracks but I don't bother with them at all and use the Aux In which works great. Yeah it's a cheap plastic housing but so what? Eggs come packaged in delicate containers but that doesn't prevent me from buying them. It appears that the unit does not like rechargeable batteries. The unit stopped working while the rechargeable still showed a 50% charge. I replaced with standard non-rechargeable and it works fine. The unit reproduces bass sounds and Aux Input sounds very well. No complaints
EDIT: The device functions really well but is severely underpowered. Surely it needs to be small in size, but 2 AAA batteries just don't cut it for extended use. I was practicing about 2 hours a day and went through 6 batteries in 3 weeks. According to its specs, it should operate for 17 hours on new batteries. To make things worse all the batteries showed a 50% charge when the unit crapped out. I think with a nice rechargeable battery and a power supply it would be much better but then you have to deal with a bigger physical unit and more wires. I think it's great to throw in a gig bag and to use in a pinch but not for extended use. I returned it no problem and bought the Harley Benton HB-40B amp which is super!! Should have gone that route at the beginning but tried to save a few bucks. Well, live and learn. Again, it works great, just underpowered. IMHO

Worth every penny
Gary H 31.03.2022
This is a gem of a device! Some people claim it's very noisy, ours isn't anyways. Sounds surprisingly clean actually.
AUX thru - a very nice feature that.
I think these devices are an absolute must for anyone whether starting out or a long time player. Highly recommend
