    So I've been wanting to get a portable amp to clip to my belt while walking around the house. I haven't been able to find one that I like the sound of, then I came across this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BXIwNSfZqtY

    Can anyone tell what amp this guy is using? At around the 4 minute mark you can see it hanging from his belt. It looks like it could be a mini deluxe, but I'm not sure.

    That link went to gift cards lol. I know they won't blow anyone away, but I actually liked the way that's guys sounded in the video I posted.

    As for the Jack Black tribute band... Oh I get it, it's because he uses one in the video :tapedshut

    You must not be married or live in a house with a woman. LOL

    Strange, I double-checked the link before submitting that post. Anyway, they're under "mini amps" at Guitar Center. Fender offers three.

    Nope, single and that's the way I like because of things like that lol.

    I'm pretty sure it's the Fender mini deluxe.

    I liked the video.

    Anyway, are you ruling out listening on headphones/in-ears? Because Pocket POD or somelike.

    That's a good point, I never thought of something like that.

    If you have a smartphone, there are plenty of amp sim apps out there for not a lot of money, though for best results you really need one of the better quality interfaces. The cheap ones tend to be a bit noisy.
