Default Honeymooners need help! What's the best amp for traveling?

After getting married this May, we will be traveling through Europe this summer to bring our acrobatics act to the street as a working honeymoon. I've busked last summer alone, but want to be more prepared this run and definitely want a sound system given the nature of our act.

We need something that will play a cd player (doesn't need to be included) and two wireless mikes. The most important factor is that it needs to be very portable, as we will be traveling for three months and not staying in any one city for more than a week. A heavy amp would be too much of a nuisance.

I've read all the forum posts on amps but not a lot of attention is paid to how portable the systems are.


Any help would be very very appreciated!

I still like my ampcan for portablity, fits in a suitcase. There is much better sound from other systems without much more loss of space, and or wieght. Taxi crate for example, others should be able to suggust more.

I am finding the amp can fantastic .Apart from that , Travelling wise , we found rucksacks a bad Idea , and use big plastic boxes on top of fishing trolleys , much better for catching buses , trains airoplanes etc etc

Fishing trolley? A trolly for fishing? A trolly used by fish? Fishing Trawler? A swishing trolley - three wheels, one of which is out of round? Pray tell, just what is a fishing trolley - confused minds need to know!

Portablility wise i've never seen or heard about anything better than the AmpCan, Unfortunatly it only has 2 inputs, so unless you work a way round that you may have to look bigger...

Fishing trolley , ist like a golfing trolly , but more off road .Logically , if you have to travel with a your performing toys, as well as everything else , then its a silly idea to put it on your back . If you use amped up music on the street , then you have to put it on a trolley . And if you travel in twos , with two trolleys and two big boxes , then everything should fit , No ?
