GutBucketeer advice - amp for busking (60* d) RE: advice - amp for busking 07 Jul 08

I now have 3 battery powered 10 to 15 watt amps to "re-inforce" the sound of my jug when playing with Snakehead Run on the Streets (don't know when to stop on ebay). All were $100 plus shipping or less on ebay.

A Jay Turser 10 watt
A Crate Taxi 15 watt
a Peavey Solo battery powered.

When all is said and done the Crate TX15 is the best buy for the bucks if you want a small support amp that will not blow away your neighbors. The Jay Turser is more for electric guitar and though rechargeable has relatively low battery life (around 2 hours). It also has only 1 input. The Peavey uses 8 regular D size batteries which need to be replaced when they runout. Both the Crate and the Peavey have 2 inputs (instrument and VOX).

I found the roland micro cube and the VOX a little small for what I needed, and liked the 2 inputs of the Crate and Peavey.
