Subject: Tech: Seeking gig amp advice
From: GUEST,BigDaddy
Date: 11 Dec 15 - 11:02 AM

I'm looking for an easily portable amp that can handle vocal and microphone and basically allow me to be heard in a relatively small room or a limited space out of doors (e.g. busking). It would have to work with a standard AC plug or batteries. Two that have been recommended are: Ultrasound AG-15M Acoustic Instrument Combo Amplifier @ $139, and the Peavey Solo Portable PA (CH-D) @ $150. Help, please...

Can't beat a warm, midsized Crate-for-acoustic. Make you sound like a million bucks-- better than you actually sound. At our biggest gig, someone came up after and said, "oh I wish I could sing like you...." and I answered right back, "me toooooo...." Cuz I KNOW how much is me-- and how much it's My Crate and Shure.

The Ultrasound, while a nice amp, is a single input acoustic guitar amp. No input for a mic.

The Peavy Solo should work well. It has two inputs, one of which is for a mic.

Another amp that might work is the PigNose Hog 30. It's battery driven (two lead acid rechargeable batteries) and will run up to ten hours on a charge. Both inputs are ¼" phone plugs so no XLR input.

Roland cubes are good. There are several models to go at.

The best (most currency tossed) "buskers" I have witnessed in the EU and USA have always been acousic and vocal.

IMHO...what a street musician gains in range of transmission....is quickly lost via the "noise annoyance factor."

Subtle and soft wins many a touched heart more than loud and blaring.

As pedestrians enter the inner sanctum of the encomphasing earth...we do not want to be MICROASSAULTED by beggars.

Sincerely,

When a busker offends ANY oriface....present a protest via the police office

Crates are quite big heavy buggers. I settled on a Roland Mobile Cube, run on six AA batteries (I used rechargeables and carried a spare set). It punched way above its modest weight, has a nice clean sound if you want that but also has lots of settings. Very portable and easy to use. Plenty of volume for a small/medium room.

AER Compact 60, good enough for Tommy Emmanuel. Expensive but brilliant, good and more reasonable Marshall Acoustic Soloist.
