Hi all.

Me and a mate are planning a trip up the east coast of Australia and want to busk along the way.

I'm looking into battery operated (preferably rechargeable) amps, something that is loud enough to be heard but keep a decent tone.

I've been looking at:

http://cgi.ebay.com.my/ASHTON-BSK158-RECHARGEABLE-BUSKERS-AMP-R-R-P-300_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQitemZ120236187682

Any opinions on this amp? Any other suggestions for amps?

I will most likely be using my Boss ME-50 multi fx through the amp as well.

We play instrumental funk/blues/latin jammy kind of stuff. Think John Butler cross Santana.

I am more than happy to go used, as we want this to be as cheap as possible.

Would like to keep the price to $300AU maximum!
Cheers!

It seems like the Micro Cube is the best choice.

Can someone tell me what the difference is between the two micro cubes listed below are?

Is the microcube loud enough to be heard well in a crowded street?

Are the inboard effects/gain good enough to not need to bring along the ME-50?

Thanks for all your help so far!

The difference is the color. The MicroCube is pretty loud. And yes the onboard FX and distortion tones are good enough to leave the multifx at home, unless you need to switch up in the middle of a song. I just picked up a used one and it's great.
