Strum Buddy Battery-Powered Guitar Combo Amp. You may know Fluid Audio from the great near-field studio monitor speakers it produces. The company considers this mini guitar combo amplifier just like its monitors: A great sounding reference for the music you’re creating. The Strum Buddy was born out of the desire for convenience and portability (two things guitar players greatly appreciate). All guitarists like to sit and noodle around on their guitars. It’s relaxing and a great way to expand your abilities. However, when you're sitting on your couch, it’s not so easy to bring your amplifier over, plug it in, get the sounds you want, etc. Plus, you’re always tethered to your amp by your instrument cable. Wouldn’t it be great to have a small amp you could stick to your guitar and play with no cord? Mounting to your guitar using a rubber suction cup, the Strum Buddy is a 6W guitar amplifier, powered by an internal rechargeable battery. It not only lets you hear and monitor your electric guitar, but allows you to play through the onboard guitar effect sounds, such as distortion, chorus and reverb.
