I’m thinking about busking this summer and I’ll need a good portable amp. I have a lot of experience with valve amps but have never used a battery operated portable amp. I only need around 3 to 5 watts but could live with something larger. I only need the amp for it’s clean tone because I will mostly play folk harmonica and the little bit of blues that I do play will be done through an amp modeling pedal. I’m looking for the cheapest smallest thing I can get without sounding like garbage. What do you guys suggest
Edit: I should add that in the UK pignose are not readily available and not nearly as good a value as in the US.
Unfortunately, whatever I get will have to be purchased online because I live in a small town in the middle of nowhere and the only nearby music shop does not stock battery operated amps of any description. Being in the business of music I know that horrible equipment can be made to sound good with enough tweaking so I don’t trust online sound clips which is why I’m looking to you guys.
I’ve had my eye on the Roland micro cube bass amp simply because I’ve had good experiences with roland PA’s and keyboard amps but don’t know if that would translate to this. I’m also not excited about the 200 quid price tag. I really want to stay under 100 GPB if possible
