portable amp for the nord
« on: March 24, 2014, 12:02:05 PM »
hi all, im after a portable amp to use with the nord. i dont drive so it has to be portable for busses and trains. i've tried an AER acoustic amp which was perfect, but its way out of my budget (£100/$165). im looking at either;

or

i normally use a 100w valve amp, but need something for smaller gigs. any advise would be appriciated!

Hi,

Sorry I can't help... but I am looking for the same.

Please can you post if / when you find something?  These caught my eye but I haven't tried them yet:
Laney Audiohub 40 Watts Combo Amp PA
Roland KC-110

Thanks, Mike.

What about the tanglewood amps? They are said to be a decent copy of the AER, at a very reduced price...

Thanks - the Ibanez looks interesting, and Tanglewood too... please post your results back, you're a couple of months ahead of me!

Mike.

hi mike, i went for a samson active pa cab. its great for the nord, needs a mixer infront of it but has loads of power (200 watt) i highley recomend it.
http://www.samsontech.com/samson/products/pa-cabinets/auro/aurod210/

payed £170 at pmt music, salford, manchester, and did a price match with http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samson-SAROD210A-Lightweight-Powered-Loudspeaker/dp/B00A1ALYPE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1402408610&sr=8-1&keywords=Auro+D210
as it was about £220 at pmt!
