    So I've decided to start busking to try and make some extra cash on the side. I'm looking at the Roland Cube Street, but I wanted to make sure that there's nothing better out there before I commit.

    Thanks!

    I was about to say Roland Cube :lol:

    I can't really think of anything else. I guess you're gonna be playing electric, right? And your gonna have a backing track? Then Roland Cube.

    Or, maybe something like one of those 5 watt tube Fender Combos + POD?

    Brandon, least your not busking in Manchester haha, would be a horrible thing to do due to too many idiots.

    But i would say roland cube just because i've heard people say good things about them.

    Thanks guys. I'd never busk in Manchester, chavs would steal my shit!

    The busking scene in Seattle is really great. There are definitely the shit ones, but about one in three buskers are really talented musicians, and some even make about $50 - 60 an hour!
