VGA-3

V-Guitar Amplifier

VGA-3
Discontinued

The VGA-3 V-Guitar Amplifier puts Roland’s most sought-after guitar and amp models in a compact digital amp at a very friendly price. This 50-watt brute delivers a stunning range of electric and acoustic guitar models—plus unique GK effects—from any GK-equipped guitar. And even without the GK pickup, guitarists can tap into 11 COSM amp models and three effects processors for killer tones galore.

What Guitar Would You Like To Play?

Unlike all other digital modeling amps, the VGA-3 can actually model guitars using any standard electric equipped with the optional GK-2A Divided Pickup. There are six COSM guitar models to choose from including electrics, hollow-body and acoustic guitar—even guitar synth and electric sitar sounds! The divided pickup also allows the VGA-3 to deliver cool polyphonic octave and polyphonic Slow Gear effects that simply can’t be had on other modeling amps.

Dead-On COSM Amp Models

The VGA-3’s amp modeling section is loaded with 11 of the finest COSM amp models available—from combos like JC Clean, American Clean, Tweed, British and Modern to stacks like Classic I, Classic I+II, R-Fier, Modern and Metal. There’s even an acoustic guitar simulator capable of turning any electric into an acoustic without the miking hassles. All of the VGA-3’s amp models have been tweaked to perfection to give you superb tone every time.

Killer Effects and 10 Digital Memories

Topping off the VGA-3’s COSM models are three independent effects processors with high-quality Roland/BOSS algorithms. The reverb processor’s smooth sounds—including new spring reverb emulation—can be adjusted via a dedicated knob; the delay processor’s three varieties of delay (including doubling) can also be quickly adjusted with a knob. The VGA-3’s EFX processor handles chorus, flanger, phaser and tremolo effects, while ten digital memories make it easy to store and recall your settings.

Tune Up, Mix In and Record Out

Tuning your guitar is easy with the VGA-3’s built-in chromatic tuner. Just follow the LEDs and you’ll be ready to go in no time. A convenient Auxiliary input lets you play along with external sound sources like a drum machine or CD player—great for practicing at home. And when you’re in the studio, just use the Headphone/REC output for easy direct recording.
