'Bad' things first - the sound is ok, very electronic, and the interface makes it a bit of a pain swapping around the different functions and there are better 'amps' out there. But for the money excellent value, simple, light, compact and I'm having a lot of fun playing along to songs without annoying flatmates and neighbours. Well pleased with it.

Knocked Out! 25 Dec. 2013
By T. Bass - Published on
Verified Purchase
Been playing guitar off and on for over 50 years, everything from Led Zepplin to Johhny Cash, to originals, and a lot more. I still like to rock (was a vocalist in "originals & covers" rock bands for 6 years). I now have Strat, with one custom Hot Rail Humbucker installed, complimenting the two standard single coil pickups. I also have an electric-acoustic with a piezo pickup. I digitally record songs, and play through a couple of small amps, including a HoneyTone. I use several effects pedals, including a couple of DanElectros and a DigiTech RP55.

In all the years I've been playing, with all kinds of equipment, I have NEVER heard anything like the NUX PG-2. It is, without a doubt, the finest sounding guitar processor I've ever heard. Granted, it's not a "pedal", and not geared for live use (NUX does make foot-operated "pedals" for live use though). It's a "practice" effects unit, but is wonderful for recording and composing.

The thing that is fantastic about it, is not only are the numerous presets and effects very well done, but the world is your oyster as far as designing your own sound with this unit. Full-on, fully tubed 100w Marshall? You got it. Electro-Harmonix fuzz, you got it. Fender Tweed pumping 2-12" Celestions? Sweet, long sustain, and analog delay? It's there. What really impressed me, is that ALL of the effects have a much richer, fuller, more natural sound than my RP55 does, in fact, the PG-2 puts it to shame. There simply is no comparison in the quality of the effects, and the richness and warmth of the sound

I bought the NUX PG-2 as a Christmas present for myself. It arrived today (Christmas Eve), and I just finished playing through it for 3 hours straight, and I still can't wipe the smile off my face! Can't remember when I've enjoyed playing so much. The ol' man can still rock! I am now planning to buy one of NUX's foot operated pedal effects units. These people have guitar "sound" down. Don't wait, don't hesitate, buy one, and you'll see! It'll be the best 50 (or less) clams you ever spent....

Works great and sounds better than my old eStudio big time. 29 May 2013
By ashbass - Published on
It works great as a headphone only amp and as well when the line out is fed to an amplifier. With an input plug adapter you can use the PG-2 to drive a speaker by itself running the speaker or cab into the unit's headphone jack. I tested mine on a 2x12 cab from the early 70s and it sounded great. There was some odd breakup with my cab set to 4 Ohms. I changed it to 16 Ohms and everything was smooth as silk.

The little instruction sheet says to not use a dc adapter with an output greater than 5v dc. So I did. And fried that PG-2. You should be more careful.

Sounds awesome 18 Jun. 2014
By P. Kellingsworth - Published on
Verified Purchase
I get a gnarly rock tone out of this thing kinda like Whitesnake or something. I'm gonna try and run it though my effects loop. Haven't had too much time to mess with it but I'm really impressed so far. Much, Much Much more bang for your buck than the Vox things. No comparison, really. This thing rivals my tube amp (and I have a good tube amp ) It's hard for me to decide. $ 40 bucks. It's a no-brainer.

Impressive sound for a small, inexpensive effect. Except ... 15 Nov. 2014
By Edward Holcroft - Published on

Impressive sound for a small, inexpensive effect. Except for the fact that mine breaks into loud static after a couple of minutes of playing. I'll be returning it under warranty and will report back on how cooperative they are.

Update: It was impossible to talk to the seller about my defective product. Amazon agreed to allow me to return it "just this once", given the circumstances. That's just crazy given the device is supposed to have a 6 month warranty. How is Amazon doing me a "favor" by taking back a defective device that's still under warranty? So just beware, in my experience they seem failure-prone and then you have to jump through hoops to get your money back, or at least be told to be grateful that Amazon is helping you out "just this once". Too bad, since I really liked this little gadget when it worked. I would give it five stars if it didn't fail on me. I'm hesitant to buy another one. Maybe try a pocket pod at a much higher price?

Update: Decided to buy an identical replacement unit. I hope that was just a bad unit and that the new one lasts. Amazon had the gall to deduct a restocking fee from my refund on a defective item.
Arrived broken and rattling 10 Dec. 2014
By Sam - Published on

Product arrived rattling. The belt clip was not attached and there were 2 screws included so I could screw it on myself. That's nice, but I don't have such a small screwdriver.

Ignoring that, I pulled the PG2 out of the package and started to look at it. It took me a while to realize there was something rattling inside the actual unit. For a while I was thinking it was those 2 screws and then I realized the screws and the clip were in the plastic bag next to the packaging box on my desk. I examined the outside of the whole unit to see if I could figure out what it was, but to no avail. I opened the battery compartment to see if a piece of plastic broke. Nope.

I plugged in my guitar and headphones to see if it worked. It did, but I could not get a decent sound out of it whatsoever and the instructions aren't hard to follow. I tried it with a stratocaster and a Les Paul with P90s. All I got was a lot of static and deep, muddy bass. When you click the ALT button, you can use the EQ and it seems like you simply can't get a decent tone on this thing. Perhaps the rattling meant mine was broken at some crucial spot inside the unit.

I made sure to turn the effects completely off (all the way down) and then clicked ALT to adjust the EQ and I could not get anything but deep mud.

It's a shame, I really wanted to use this unit after seeing the Youtube videos, but I will not buy another one hoping this was a fluke.

I filled out a return form through Amazon and apparently I will be refunded once they receive the item. Amazon offered a free return via UPS, I think.

Amazon has always been good to me, but if something goes wrong in the return process, I'll update this review and let you know.
