GutBucketeer Tech: Portable battery amp thoughts ? (31) RE: Tech: Portable battery amp thoughts ? 18 Mar 08

Jay Turser Classic 10 report. The first amp I "won" on E-bay was the Jay Turser Classic 10. It's a 10 watt amp with built in NiCad battery that is supposed to last 4 hours. It looks wonderful, with a natural wood front and tweed sides. Like an old time radio. It only has 1 instrument input so it really is a guitar amp. It has treble, middle, and bass equalization, which work nicely. It also has a main volume and Gain control, with an overdrive switch. My son loves its sound when there is   overdrive on with a little gain.

However, we may have charged the battery wrong the first time we plugged it in. It only lasted about an hour on the street which is way less than the advertised 4 hours. I'm going to deep drain it, and then do a total recharge to see if it helps.

If the batteries lasted longer it would be a great street amp. I've ordered a 4 channel battery powered mixer to overcome the only 1 input problem. We will see.


I also on impulse ordered a Crate Taxi TX 15. I think that this will be the one for me. 2 inputs - 8 hours of battery life. We will see.
