This thread is timely for me. Last week some bast**d nicked my Roland Microcube out of the van (but not, strangely, the satnav)!
So thanks for the list JAB - I'm googling as we speak.
The Microcube is excellent for a little 'invisible' reinforcement for finger-picked guitar - something I sometimes want at what are supposed to be unplugged gigs. As Hipflask will agree if he reads this (it was his idea!) it stops you over-playing, which is the chief source of errors, I find.
I've found it so useful that now that I have to replace it, I plan to go one better, and get an 'invisible' PA for those unplugged gigs with lousy acoustics. I'll probably use a Sampson Qv headset mic into a small battery amp. But I'll still want guitar too, so the Roland is only viable if i use a little mixer - which is one thing too many.
The thing I'm looking for is a proper 'torch' battery amp, like the Rolands, rather than a rechargeable, like most of the rest, it seems. (The reason is that I already have too many things to cover on tour. Remembering to take the damn amp into people's houses to recharge is just a job too far - so it'll always be flat just when I need it).
This rules out the Fender which looks the right size and has an excellent flexible design.
Can anyone recommend anything?
