I just  use   a Roland   street  cube   in the  house   or  if  I'm   doing   a    small venue , It  has mic .guitar  and  aux  inputs   , models several amps  has  an acoustic simulator   as  well  for  use  with  electric  guitar  and  a  variety  of  effects  very  good  sound   and  not  stupidly  priced  . It  can also  be  used   on battery  or  mains . Most  street  musicians  use  them over  here .

Re: acoustic amps?

I looked long and hard at the Cube's, but even s/h the prices were pretty steep; I managed to get a Roland AC-33 which is battery/mains on Reverb for cheaper than half price.

If you scroll down this page you'll get an indication of 'sold' prices: https://reverb.com/au/p/roland-ac-33-2x … -combo-amp

Re: acoustic amps?

I've got an AC60 that is wonderful.

The key thing for me in picking an acoustic amp is finding one that has a second channel that will accept a mic or a second instrument.

Mine has effects on each channel built into the amp, which is very useful. I can put a little reverb in my voice and drop in some bass, and have the guitar with a different setting.

There are also the Joyo range, can't speak for them from experience, but they do reasonable copies of all sorts of audio devices: https://www.thomannmusic.com/joyo_acous … fiers.html
