Looking for a little amp. Goin to job corps in 2 months-ish. And, I've been trying to play on my acoustic, but I hate the ****in thing. I really do... Anyway, I had a friend in high school who had this amp thing that actually clipped on his belt. I think that would be a nice substitute, because I cant bring mine with me (too big to fit into a bag)
Problem is, I have no idea what theyre called, if anything. Nor quality of brands.
Anyone got info on these?

micro cube is like 60 bucks over my budget.
Still, thatd be nice....

How small? If you just want something tiny that you can plug headphones into it's hard to go past a Vox Amplug. Small enough to fit into your guitar case. You'd have to have a damn good imagination to think they actually sound like the amp they are supposed to be emulating but they are certainly good enough to practice quietly with. And they are really cheap.
Decent headphones helps with them. I have the AC30 one. It's very useable for what it is.

That looks interesting, would it be something I could use to also play for people? Im not too worried about high quality. But something to plug in and play for people, and ofc, silently play to myself.

They do make a little cab to go with it but I have no idea what they sound like, I'm guessing not very good. They are more of a headphones amp. As far as little amps that you can actually perform with I'll throw my hat in with the guys recommending a Roland Microcube. Not small enough to fit in your pocket but they are quite small and sound remarkably good for their size.

Never tried one. Some Danelectro stuff is pretty good. Their pedals sound good, even if they are a bit flimsy on the insides. Could be worth a try, certainly cheap enough.

I have the Marshall mini thing. I've had to fix it twice (the input jack falls into the amp). It's very low quality, and sounds terrible but it works.

If you can, get the Microcube. It won't break, and you won't want to throw it away after a day like you will with any of the cheaper belt clip/mini amps.

The marshall mini amp is pretty cool but if you get the "halfstack" version there's no master volume so ya gotta crank it for some distortion. I also have an amplug and its pretty sweet...and if ya wanna play for people just plug some computer speakers into the 1/8" output instead of headphones...i have a feeling that actually sound better than the cab they make for it.

I've used a Mini Plug & Play (http://www.amazon.com/Mini-Plug-Play-Guitar-Amp/dp/B00345GTY4/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1332882575&sr=8-2) and loved it, but unless you're using a strat where it'll stay out of harms way it's eventually going to get knocked around. Mine has a very loose/broken jack because of this.

When I bought it I was going between that and a Mighty Moe AmpStrap. In hindsight I should have gone with the AmpStrap. Might not look very conventional (and obviously isn't), but it won't get knocked around -- which if you're going abroad will be a concern.

Here's a YouTube clip of one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GXw_fF77ttk

The Danelectro Honeytone is pretty awesome, sounds very old school and lo-fi.

I love mine. Never tried the AMPlugs though.

Ahhh yes, I'm playing one now as a matter of fact. The brand is Traveler and that's the EG-1. Great for sitting at my desk, flying, etc.
