a little bomb

this works so well with any style, and it sounds great with a bass! A brilliant birthday present.

What a great idea. I have a beautiful Artist LSPFX and this compliments it so well. No need to plug into my Amp. Total freedom of movement and with the aux port I can plug in my phone and get any backing track I want to play along to. I am new to guitar playing but this little bit of kit got me really excited. Can't wait for when I can really play well but it certainly gives me a lot of incentive. Arrived quickly and does exactly what it says on the tin. Combined with the great communication and advice I have already received from team Artist, this makes me a very big fan.

Great for quiet practice

This is a great little headphone amp, at half the price of the big brand products. It works well either plugged directly into guitars and basses, and it also works well plugged into the output of a pedalboard. The line in is also usefull when you want to play along with your favourite songs.

Broken after 2 years of use

By: on 29 July 2023
You might as well take the leap and buy ones that are more expensive. The red light started to malfunction after a year and now it will not turn on. Yes I have tried using new batteries. It more of a bang for your buck if you buy the expensive ones. I AM SO SAD. Sound was also horrible.

Excellent works very well.

Artist Guitars Response
Thank you for the review. We really appreciate it.

Great budget option

Bought it for my bro and he's using it with his Bass Guitar and pedals - the two aux inputs make it easy for him to put a track on while practicing. He said it's got a great sound quality and is super easy to use, so it's a win as far as I'm concerned!

Nux GP1 Will Get It Done

By: on 11 August 2022
For anyone that wants to practice Rock God Riffs etc without annoying the family or neighbours then this gets the job very nicely indeed. It’s well built and lightweight and very easy to use. It’s not crammed full of effects or drum patterns like some of the more expensive models but for the price it definitely meets my practice needs with a nice bit of distortion if necessary. It’s already encouraging me to play my electric guitars more around the house instead of reaching for the acoustic all the time. A great little investment and as always Artist Guitars had fast dispatch and delivery. I hope to visit the new showroom soon but dealing with Artist Guitars online couldn’t be easier and the support is always first class. Thanks again for another great product at a great price

Tiny amp, awesome output

By: on 24 November 2021
This practice amp is fantastic for use with online lessons like Fender Play - aux output from the laptop into the Nux, and headphones so I don’t disturb anyone at home. Love it!

Why I buy mostly from Artist

By: on 14 September 2021
the NUX GP1 is a great unit to practice when well away from home, loud with variable tone and gain control, and Artist had this unit at a great price with quick delivery. Artist are my go to for most of my guitar needs

Guitar Plug Headphone Amp

It does it's job, but it's a bit flimsy. If you accidentally drop it, the battery cover falls off together with the batteries. I don't think it would survive someone sitting on it.

Artist Guitars Response
I am sorry to hear that the item is not what you would expect. Let us know if there is anything we can do to help.

Practice without disturbing the family.

By: on 31 July 2020
Bought this as an option to practice with headphones, and not disturb the family. Build quality is good for the price. I haven't used any other similar products, so I can't comment on sound quality comparison, but these are quite good for the price, but don't expect high quality sound. There is some occasional noise, but I rhink these a a good value oprion if you just want to prractice, without disturbing others.

Absolutely an awesome idea and little gadget. HOWEVER.. I was using it with my Bose headphones and the sound came through very distorted? I tried adjusting the settings and volume and it was still distorted, grainy? I could hear the A strings viabrations whilst plucking the D and G String..? I have only just picked up a bass (never played guitar or any instrument in my life before) and I love my artist PB2 Bass, so Im no expert, but this was just my first thoughts on the Guitar Plug. Ill continue to try and use and even try different headphones. :) But

Very compact and convenient. Performance is very good for what it is. Wish I hadn’t bought the PHT-2 now.

Nux plug in

By: on 30 May 2018
Ordered and received in 4 days. Works a treat and you can practice anywhere. Worth the money. Very happy

Buy it you will love it

By: on 6 February 2018
Use it anywhere you want no need for mains power, sound is very good and the distortion is as they clamed very British. Head phones have to have a 3mm plug, my 6mm to 3mm adaptor fowls on the units, housing all in all Love It Andrew

Great little headphone amp

By: on 28 December 2017
Neat little unit that allows you to plug headphones directly into in rather than through your standard amp. Sound is reasonably good considering the size
