It seems a little weird, and yes, it does involve my gear.

Here's the back story. I saw an ad on craigslist about a HONK! style marching band. If you don't know what that is, look it up. Short version is; if you can march it, you're qualified to play in the band.

Now, here's my problem. I'm trying to find a way to tow my rig down the street while marching. I have a Behringer V-Tone GMX 212 and I need to think of a way to move it while marching. A vehicle towing it is out of the question. Any ideas?

Slap it in a large duffel bag, should still be able to hear it.

You could put it in a wagon and strap it to yourself

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

you could use a car battery as a power source and ghetto rig it to your amp, then do the wagon thing like the one dude said.

A wagon or some kind of dolly. Plus you'd need a generator to power the amp.
Or you could rig up some kind of harness so the amp sits on your back.

I don't think you quite understand how big and heavy this amp is. If I were to turn it to stand long ways, it's the size of a half cab.


MatrixClaw - That's not a bad idea. But how would I get power? Generators are quite loud.

I've never heard of a guitar in a marching band where they were outside of the pit section (stationary percussion basically..) I played bass guitar for the pit one year and the next year they wanted me to march so I just used a wireless system with bitchin' range. Is that an option for you?

something like this.

and this if it is a jump starter with a cigarette lighter port and not an outlet.


just a thought, not sure how long that would work. But it's an idea.

I can work with the wireless system. But that only works if you're on a football field or something where the amp is stationary. Think St. Patty's Day parade. How do I move my rig through the parade route?

On the float behind you!

Anyway, you can also get a guitar with a built-in amp. These day’s they’re hard to find, shitty starter models; I don’t know if anybody has made a decent one since the 1990s.

Where do you live? Missouri?

The car battery idea sounds suicidal. Maybe get a battery powered amp of some sort and then strap it to your forehead. Or make a backpack out of it, just make sure not to hang yourself with the cables.

Look up the Amp in a Can or the Keg Blaster "which ever one is the one that is a beer keg looking container"

I've looked up how to power an amp with a car battery or something similar. All I need to do is get a converter. I think if I can find enough people that are willing to play powered instruments, we can get a float for the back of the formation. I'm envisioning a wall of pure sound. Something like Zakk Wylde's wall of destruction. If not, I'm sure I'll figure something out for moving my amp down the street.
