Looking for a portable battery powered amp. I think I've narrowed it down to these two. Suggestions? Thoughts?

Depends what and where you are going to use it for. Why do you need it battery powered? That Yamaha one does look nice though.

I want to be able to practice while I'm outside with my dog, and there are no outlets available.

I may also want to pick up another smaller amp for the living room, so open to suggestions for that. The less complex/expensive the better.

I got my Bandit 112 back in my studio room, but my dog loses his shit when I'm in there. So I'm not practicing as much as I should. I may just move that one out into the living room, but I definitely need something portable for outside, as we spend a lot of time out there in the early mornings and evenings.

I guess the Yamaha then, although I'd probably want to hear it first. Totally not the same thing, but I have one of these:

They are very handy for practising, and you can even connect it to your phone while you play over spotify / youtube tracks. ‎2 AA batteries required. Works only via headphones obviously but is a pretty nifty gadget.

I have the Roland Micro Cube that does the job nicely... the modeling is nice enough.. the fx are a little heavy handed but i should be using a multi pedal anyway.
I've done some busking with this super easy to carry and the battery's last i think 2, 3 days? it's been awhile i keep it plugged in now.

I like the Yamaha in your pics, my Roland has a 5" speaker the yamaha has 2, 3" i wonder how it handles.. do you think it will sound tinny?

I had considered the Micro Cube, as well.

As far as I can tell the Yamaha isn't terrible based on reviews and price they commend on the second hand market. I been looking for a used one but can't seem to find any decently priced.

I'm leaning towards the Katana Mini at this point just because it's not a modeling amp, and only uses 6 AA batteries. Plus, it's cheaper.

My birthday is coming up soon, so we will see what I can get away with asking for



That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again
Skip to 2:10 for actual sound from the room. The intro is likely EQ'd with mix FX and not its natural sound.

Sounds like itíd be great for some metal tones. And a lot of comments/reviews says it plays well with pedals.

I like how itís no fuss no muss. As nice as the Yamaha is I feel like Iíd spend more time just twisting knobs than practicing.

I will definitely post back when I make a decision/purchase.

Well, I went in a completely different direction and just ordered the Orange Crush Mini. I have my reasons, but letís hope I donít regret it.

Orange amps are gorgeous, you won't regret it.

OK, so I get the hate for this thing, but I love it. Itís the perfect loudness on clean, and, while stupid fun, the distortion is completely useless. Great for what I need.

And I like that thereís no on/off switch
