Product Description

If you are a singer/songwriter/musician who has been itching to get back out in public to perform in the warm weather, the most flexible solution for busking in public spaces is a battery-powered guitar amplifier that will provide hours of dependable play time and can handle the kind of punishment the street can dish out. Bringing your words and music to your town’s culture-craving citizens could be just the ticket, not only for expanding your songwriting and performing parameters, but also for increasing your fan base and gaining some recognition.

In the old days, when ambient noise registered fewer decibels in public (and before portable PA systems and amplifiers), street musicians could be heard when they played acoustically, within a certain radius. Today, in a noisier world, contemporary musicians have the ability to widen that radius with the addition to their act of a portable, battery-powered amplifier that offers inputs for guitars, keyboards, and microphones.

Grand Old Tradition

Even though the term “busking” used to describe street performance wasn’t coined until the 1860s, in Great Britain, the tradition dates back to at least the 11th Century, in Russia, according to Wikipedia, so take this factoid with a grain of salt. It is the grand old tradition of performing for gratuities. Some buskers provide a box into which listeners can drop donations during a performance, others will pass a hat around after a performance or just leave their instrument case open in front of them on the ground.

“… Busking is a very humble and brave act that takes courage to do well. It's also about the energy of music being alive outside in a city...” —from an interview with Ketch Secor, by Jedd Ferris (25 September 2008); Catching Up With...Old Crow Medicine Show
