Hi,

I play electric guitar and I'll be going to Nottingham next year to study MUSIC. I have a nice amplifier, but I am worried that it'd get broken if I just put it in a suitcase in the plane (besides I can only have 20 kg of weight and amp+guitar+suitcase = 19!!! which would mean that I'd have no clothes).

I am thinking of leaving my amplifier at home and just taking my electric guitar.

Is there any way to BORROW or RENT an amp from the music department for my bedroom for all three terms (excluding the breaks in between terms)? Or is there anyone who wouldn't mind sharing their's (Rutland Hall)?

This is really getting me down because my parents are saying "leave guitar + amp at home" which would kill me, because I love playing and i am, after all, studying music...


Thanks beforehand,

Lucie:suitc:

It's always a bummer when you can't take things like that with you - I was the same and I live in the UK! I would suggest that you leave your amp at home, and take your guitar, pedals etc over with you. What you can do then is spend about £40 on maybe a 10W practise amp that you can keep in your room. This will also be nice and small that you can carry around with you. If you do need something bigger, bandsoc are always happy to let you borrow some of their larger amps etc.
Hope this has helped!

Surely a Pod XT or Guitar Port would make more sense and play with headphones?
