I've been looking at old silvertones recently and the amp-in-case models really caught my eye.. and I know Peavey have done the same thing, It's a cool concept, maybe with an external battery? I've tried for looking for slim combo amps but that's unlikely to work unless I took it apart and reassembled it (which wouldn't be such a bad idea), although something in the diy zone of tube amps might be slim enough, or designed to fit in a box-style case. I just like the idea that I could walk around anywhere, and at whim begin serenading.. of course I could do that with an acoustic, but I want my wooing attempts to travel several blocks. I need the long-distance coverage.. An alternative would be to setup a couple simple stereo speakers and hook them up to a VOX Amplug.. but I can't imagine that sounding as good.. I've looked all over the net but I can't find any, perhaps DIY is the way to go?
