Battery Powered Amplifiers For Electrics

Sometimes you need to be able to amp up your guitar on the move. Battery-powered guitar amps have come a long way in the past couple of years which means that street musicians can call upon some pretty huge sounds from amplifiers that they can take anywhere. The amps we’ve selected here are primarily aimed at electric instruments and include a mic channel. Here are three that we think are definitely worth considering.

Vox Mini3 MkII Classic

Great looks and compact construction, this battery-powered amp features modeling technology inherited from the Valvetronix series of amps. The latest generation of this portable amp uses the MINI3 G2, VOX’s new Bassilator circuit, which delivers a powerful tone with solid bass frequencies and improved on-board effects. A dedicated mic channel rounds off the impressive list of features!
