Ampuplugnplay

The AMPUPLUGNPLAY actually becomes part of your guitar by plugging directly into the female jack on your guitar. Weighing about the same as a heavy-duty guitar cable the AMPUPLUGNPLAY is lightweight and is held securely in place by your guitar. The AMPUPLUGNPLAY keeps it simple and uses the volume and tone controls from your guitar.

Electro Harmonix 22 Caliber

The 22 Caliber is a versatile 22-watt guitar head that fits in the palm of your hand. Just plug it into any 4-, 8- or 16-ohm speaker, and you'll get a big, sweet musical sound.
Crank the 22 Caliber's volume, and it'll go into overdrive -- like a vintage amp with a single volume control. Flip on the Bright switch to add some bite and definition.

It's not just a guitar head; it's a shrunken head, with all good voodoo.

Made in USA
