I recently purchased a little SMokey amp ($25 plus tax!!!!!).............it rocks!!!! Also, unbeknownst to some people, it has a speaker out jack that, when patched into a speaker enclosure (I tried a marshall stack) at the store puts out a shocking amount of volume (incredible for a 'toy' amp).
My only beef is that it only distorts the sound and you cannot control it.
It would be hip if they put out a clean 'Smoke'..
I'm trying to put an entirely battery driven looping rig together (Line 6, battery operated mixer, smokey amp or
pig nose, battery powered mic) so that I can go out and do guerilla looping gigs on the mall.
Anyone know of a good battery powered, small mixer?
How about an inexpensive battery powered mic that is decent?

press release when I have it completed in a few days.
If you've got any interesting BASS ONLY looping recordings (in CD format only, sorry), mail them to me post haste
