About 4 or 5 years ago, Sean gave me what looked like a notebook computer bag and said, "give this a try."
It was an AXL Thin Amp - DSP 10. It was a notebook computer sized digitial amp . . . pretty much all plastic.
I still have it. I've got a battery for it that allows me to run it for about 4 hours without being plugged in. It's not that loud . . . but it does amplify an acoustic, or my Strat when I want to play with some compression and flange (which isn't really often.)
No other guitar sounds as good on it as my Taylor GS Mini Mahogany. Usually I do a beach or park concert of sorts each year, and have even sung on an open party boat. The Thin Amp and the GS Mini are truly a portable pair, especially if I have to use battery power.
I don't think AXL is making Thin Amps anymore. I need to check to make sure. The one I have is still going strong. I don't use it near as much as my Fishman Loudbox . . . but I am glad I have it. Being able to run on a batter that measures 4"x4"x2" for several hours is really a neat option when it is needed. It is certainly nice to have options.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
