Are you looking for a way to practice your electric guitar on the road without having to lug an amp and effects pedals around? The iRig by AmpliTube ($39.99) allows you to plug your electric guitar directly into your iPhone. You can also run a separate jack to a pair of headphones so that you can practice quietly in a hotel room. Plug into some speakers or a mixer for a more portable effects setup. With their free AmpliTube app you can add the sound of three different stomp boxes and a guitar amp and cabinet. The LE version and Full version offer even more settings.
