Vox makes a series of AmPlug headphone amps. You plug it into your guitar, then plug the headphones into it. I own the AC-30 model, and while it doesn't "nail" all the nuances of an AC-30, it sounds very good indeed. They also make a Mesa type and a Marshall type:
I've been curious about these....will it do edge of overdrive at all, and if so,
does it do it 1. without fizz, and 2. without taking your head off?
Well, that's always the weak point of SS. I'm usually going for a driven Vox tone. I'll try to remember to try it with a compressor in front of it to see if I can surf that zone when it just starts breaking up.
