    Hey! Does anyone have a suggestion on a lite weight practice amp, I am going to a jazz camp and need to bring a amp. I have a Mesa Boggie walkabout scout w/cab but I think its to nice to bring and beside I have to walk about 6 miles a day with it. I play a five string G&L so I'm looking for something with good sound. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks

    When my daughter went off to a jazz camp a few years ago, I shopped around for used practice amps and picked up a Crate B-10 for $50. At that price, if it got stolen or trashed it would be no big deal. As it turned out, someone stole the knobs off it :confused:

    Consider getting a small luggage cart (the folding kind like you see at airports) to roll the amp around on.
