Superior Modeling Technology

From the versatile JamVOX to the acclaimed Valve Reactor and Valvetronix series amplifiers, Vox has earned a reputation for premium modeling technology. The Mini3 is no exception, delivering 11 accurate and authentic amp models covering a broad range of styles and playing techniques.

Starting with the coveted VOX British tone, the MINI3 also offers the sounds of classic historic amps, today's intense hi-gain amps, and hard to obtain rare "boutique" amplifiers.

Clean Model Accommodates Nearly any Instrument

A pure, non-distorting clean model is included in the eleven amp types. This allows nearly any acoustic instrument fitted with a pickup or an acoustic-electric guitar to be connected to the Mini3, providing a rich and satisfying tone without losing any of your instrument's acoustic resonances or nuances.

This setting is also ideal for use with a keyboard or workstation, allowing the Mini3 to function as a portable PA system as well as a guitar amp.

Easy-to-Operate Effects

The Mini3 provides both effects and reverb/delay for putting the final touches on your sound. The effects section offers a compressor, chorus, flanger, and tremolo. Two reverbs and two delays are also available. Each effect is easily editable for creating your own signature sound.

Dedicated knobs integrate effect selection and parameter adjustment, ensuring intuitive control - even for a beginner. Tap tempo control makes setting the delay time to match the music a snap!

Ultra-Portable Freedom and Mobility

As its name suggests, the Mini3 is ultra-compact. Your Mini3 includes a convenient, detachable shoulder-type carry strap for transporting your Mini3 with ease.

It weighs a mere 3.5 kg, so you won't get tired of carrying it around. In addition to getting from point A to point B, the Mini3 can be played at any point along the way! Six AA alkaline batteries can provide up to 30 hours of on-the-go power - ideal for outdoor use and street performances. An AC adaptor is included for playing while connected to an outlet.

Versatile Connections to Serve the Singer/Performer

In addition to the main guitar input, the Mini3 provides a separate mic input, complete with its own volume knob and control of the reverb/delay amount. This dynamic addition offers you detailed control of your overall sound.

Plus, Vox have also included a convenient Aux input jack for connecting an MP3 player or other audio source. Jam along to your favorite tunes, practice those tricky licks, or play along with pre-recorded backing tracks for a full-fledged performance - all by yourself!

Traditional Vox Design

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 grill cloth and textured vinyl cladding, making it a tasteful addition to any room. In addition to the proven and popular black, the Mini3 is also available in a vintage-vibe ivory or British racing green.
