VOX Announces MINI3 G2 Portable Modeling Amplifier
The Mini3 G2 provides 11 highly accurate, wide-ranging amplifier models, starting with the coveted VOX British tone and including classic historic amps as well as contemporary high-gain units such as the new and powerfully-distorting CALI METAL model. In addition, a clean, non-distorting amp model preserves the natural quality of any acoustic instrument as well as a keyboard. A total of eight effects are on-board, including: compressor, chorus, flanger, tremolo, reverb and delay (complete with Tap Tempo). One effect and one reverb/delay can be operated simultaneously. Amps and effects can be easily dialed in via a newly re-designed user interface that provides more intuitive top panel controls.
New to the VOX Mini series is the built-in VOX original "Bassilator" circuit to cover the ultra-low-frequency overtones that are not obtainable via EQ. This is particularly effective for high-gain models and produces an intensely heavy sound that is uncommon for an amp of this size.
In addition to the instrument input, the Mini3 G2 also offers a separate mic input - complete with its own volume knob and reverb/delay level control - allowing it to function as a portable P.A. system. A convenient AUX input is provided for jamming along to a CD or MP3, or for use with any audio source. The headphone output allows for private practice or use as a line out for recording, and also enables the Mini3 G2 to be used as a personal monitor when hooked to larger sound system.
Designed for true mobility, the Mini3 G2 can run anywhere for up to 30 hours on six AA batteries; an AC adaptor is included for stationary use. For the on-the-go musician or street performer, the Mini3 G2 comes with its own stylish strap, allowing it to be easily carried, or even worn during performance. The Mini3 G2 comes in a choice of colors: black, ivory, and "classic," which features traditional VOX diamond pattern grill cloth.
The VOX Mini3 G2 will be in stores in Summer 2013 with a U.S. Street price of $119.99
