For these music performance applications, I recommend the Fender Passport Mini busking amp. I recommend this amp for a few reasons:
- You can use it for street busking to have guitar and vocal amplification (simultaneously) without electricity. The Passport can run on batteries (it does come with an AC adapter to plug it in as well).
- Even though it's a small 7 watt amp, it puts out some quality sound for both vocals and guitar. Plus, there are several pre-set sound functions that simulate other Fender amplifiers like, the '65 Twin Reverb amp or the '57 Champ. You can even expand the sounds by with software when you plug it in via the USB port to your computer. It also has a headphone jack and auxiliary input jack where you can plug in an mp3 player or your phone to play to backing tracks coming through the amp.
- Here's the other reason I recommend it...the USB output can be used (with the appropriate adaptor) to plug directly into your phone, tablet, or computer to the amp as your direct line input into your device of choice to livestream quality audio over the internet. So if you want to do a livestream guitar/vocal performance on Facebook, Instagram, Twitch, or other platform, this amp can serve as your interface to the livestreaming platform you use.
