    I just finished putting my mini setup together. I must admit it sounded even better than I thought it would. The plan was to keep it SMALL SIMPLE and (relatively) inexpensive. Most of the stuff I bought second hand.

    The board: a surf board shaped cutting board decked out with with super velcro. Effects are Mooer Phaser & Chorus, dirt pedal of the day (today was the OCD), a custom made by my pal Evan Pink FLuffy Unicorns Boost, Moore Reecho delay, and TC Ditto.

    Completed with a ZT lunchbox amp.

    Had a hoot playing around with this today!

    I imagine there are other here that would like to share their mini setups so please do :)

    I just decided to put together a nano again after having it sit empty for the last year and a half. That's as small as I'll go rig wise, I can't imagine using an amp less than 30W.

    Cool. Nanos are awesome and I love seeing what people can squeeze on 'em.

    The lunchbox is a SS 200 watt amp, plenty loud for home. When I play out I usually use a 35 watt Redplate tube amp on one side and the lunch box as a little floor monitor on the other.

    What a great concept, first time I've seen something like this. Links to other examples?

    Mine is just moderately mini, but when I want to go small I can just grab one of these:

    These are my "Champensteins". They are parted out cabinets and special 3.2ohm Weber speakers I put together with some new-old-stock Silverface Champ chassis' I acquired from a fellow who had a bunch of them from who knows where. As you probably know, vintage Champs do not have master volumes. The hole you are seeing is probably the on-off switch. (I didn't bother to spend the $$'s being charged for original replacement faceplates, so they have a very "industrial" and generic look about them, which may have thrown you). Besides the Weber speakers, the only other mod to them is replacing the 12ax7 preamp tubes with American NOS 12at7's, for a sound I prefer to the originals.
