....but i want to start busking and need an amp.

I won't be able to have power and batteries are costly $.

Is there any amps that can be attached to an exercise bike as a source of power? Alternatively i have a hamster that i could put in a wheel for power?

Has anyone seen this done? If so, how?

I think buying a solar power or hamster powered amp (if such things indeed exist) would be a lot more expensive. You're probably gonna need to buy or steel some batteries.

spend more time on the treadmill rather then trying to find someone else to use it to power ur dumb hobby

Yeah, you have to feed the hamster. Ever had one of those? They eat like a horse.

it's pretty easy to make.

just use a monkey to ride the bike while you chugga chugga da br00tz.



you can just mod a car alternator for teh cheep.

if you can't get a monkey, just have eppicurt do it.

OP, you are right. that is stupid.

if anything, buy batteries. if your good at busking, you make the money back.

DUH.

I'm serious. He puts solar panels on his pedals like this to charge the battery
And then he takes the panels off when no one's looking and wala.

That's not stopping him ^^ Although it does sound more like irish folk than metal but w/e


I'd say get an acoustic electric and a nice 100w tube amp powered by lightbulbs . That way you can really be br00tlz

Because The batteries are solar panels that only work when they are charged.

Spend an amount of your busking money, it shouldn't be that bad. A large pack of no-name alkaline batteries will likely last you a long time, and they aren't that expensive either. I'm sure you won't be out doing this as a full time job?

Try that solar powered amp if you want but just hitting you up with what I feel is the best solution for ya problem

You can make your pedals wind powered easily. Just take one of those battery powered mini fans and solder the battery part of it to the 9 volt adapter on the pedal. Leave them out for a while it's windy or just throw them in the air a couple times and you'll be good to go.
