Best way to find out is asking you my friends


My electric guitar is not wireless, my car has Bluetooth and also a USB charging option. I'd like to find an affordable option to play my guitar in the car. Can you help me?

Standard high wattage car amp and a 12vdc Behringer xenex mixing board with effects. That was easy.

Cheers - Dave

One of these, a head unit with aux jack and a lead. Cheapest option.

All the above...

Preferably in the backseat (not driving) and with the top down.

Or just ride in an RV.

I do all the time...you sure can. Ive got a HOTWATT, small digital effects box/w headphone jack. Has digital delay and in your headphones can make you sound lke your live-full fx, distortion, stereo delay.

Mine cost under $100...had it for years and years...and when I got a new car...my new car has a stereo--headphones, bluetooth or device-in... to plug devices in and use car stereo.

That being said? My old car? Headphones with battery HOTWATT/w FX...my new car? Straight into the car pinjack...

There are dozens of ways and small fx boxes or bluetooth-devices since I bought mine years ago. Matter of fact...mine is nearly 20-some years old..has fx, distortions, stereo delay and is digital....so even now...its up to modern play without amp abilities...but you CAN go and plug it INTO your amp at home too.

Check out your local music store..Good luck. Hey? Let me know...MS

Affordable? How about a Danolectro Honey tone practice amp? It runs on a 9 volt battery or an AC adaptor and you can find them for about $20. Is that affordable enough? I hope so lol, because that is one of the most inexpensive and one of the better sounding mini amps.

I have found the Micro Cube from Roland to be very good for a battery amp. Of course, any portable amp (and an impedance adjustment with a re-amper) and you can even listen to takes on the amp while you're driving home from the session.

why would you want to play your guitar in your car?

I want to use the car's audio system instead of an amp if possible. Want to go far away and play for my wife.

Can you plug or bluetooth your ph into your car system? If so I would consider getting a guitar interface (I use an apogee) and run it thru a virtual amp app in your ph. Bias, JamUp, Ampkit and Amplitude are a few good amp apps.

That's a great way to do it.


Also, you might be able to find an old Pod and hook it up with a cassette input (worst case scenario).

POD app on iPhone w/ the correct leads
OR
Kong Pandora (that's what they used to be) multi effects unit or similar....Tiny title things.. Awesome amp sounds and effects. Full stereo with 3.5mm output jack. Plug it straight into the car stereo.
