If you are traveling lite and need a headphone amp this is pretty good. No matter the gain setting you are going to have break up so it is not clean but clean enough for blues and rock playing. Batteries last a long time and can plug a Media device to jam along. If playing a LP it kinda sucks it you are sitting down to play as it dangles off the bottom and not comfortable in that position. Fits in the guitar case and only use it if I am charging my phone and can't use the iRig UA.
