You know the saying, “good things can come in small packages,” well this is certainly the case with the new iRig Micro Amp from IK Multimedia. This very portable and lightweight amplifier can produce some pretty impressive tones from its 4” full-range speaker (15W power when plugged in; 7.5W on batteries).
The iRig Micro Amp also has a micro USB jack that allows you to connect your iPad, iPhone, Mac, or PC allowing you to use sounds from your favorite music apps or software. Included is IK’s AmpliTube amp and effects modeling software (Mac/PC) and app (iPhone/iPad), which unlocks an assortment of guitar amps and stompbox effects for free. The amp can also be used as a speaker to play your favorite music from your phone or computer, so it is very versatile.
With its three analog channels (clean, drive, and lead), you can create some very inspiring tones.
If you are looking to expand your rig, the amp also has an output jack that can be connected to a larger, 4ohm cabinet.
Powered by either 6 AA batteries or a DC in, this lightweight amp is great for playing around the house, studio, or for the musician on the go. With a street price of $149.99, it’s hard not to want to add one of these to your arsenal.
