Default Electronic Chanter Amp / Speaker Recommendations

I ordered the Blair Digital Chanter yesterday and am really looking forward to receiving it. I plan to use it mostly for silent practice (with headphones) but would also like to plug it into an amp or powered speaker for everyone's enjoyment (maybe enjoyment is optimistic, but I'm getting better).



Do you have any recommendations on amps or powered speakers that would work well with the Blair, or other electronic chanters? The features most important to me would be:


1. Good sound (but doesn't really have to be performance capable)
2. Portable (battery and AC power)
3. 3.5mm or 1/4 inch inputs
4. Ability to plug in an effects pedal
5. Uses disposable batteries rather than rechargeable


Any advice is most appreciated.

I use the Roland mini cube...the clean acoustic channel with reverb sounds superb.

I was looking at the Roland Micro Cube and I think it might be the best solution. I see they have a newer GX version that connects to ios devices. What kind of battery life have you seen with yours?

This is the one I use..it's actually a micro cube..I can't speak to any battery issues as I always use the power cord but I see them being used by buskers with battery power everywhere.
