bass amp on the street...

  1. hey, anybody have any suggestions for an amp i can rig to batteries and play on the street? yesterday, i stopped downtown to get a cup of coffee on the way to rehearsal, and ended up jamming with some tap dancer guy for a few minutes... tourists were throwing mad cash at us. i had to plug into his crappy little stereo, which didn't work too well...

    any ideas?

    Pignose, but they're not very loud.

    You know, you should do a internet search - I remember reading an article once about a bassist who rigged up a little cart amp powered by a car battery... seemed it worked pretty well...
