    Default Battery Mixer and Reverb advice please

    Hi
    I'm looking for a small battery mixer with reverb for vocals. I want it for times I'm away from a mains power supply such as busking and recording when I'm camping. I've seen small battery powered mixers that almost meet my needs but they lack reverb. Is there any other method of adding reverb to vocals such as a pedal? I've seen a few vocal reverb pedals but they work off a plug in power supply and have no battery facility.

    My requirements are
    1x mic channel
    1x instrument channel
    EQ on each channel
    At least basic reverb

    Grateful for any suggestions
    Thanks

    Battery powered amps or portable PAs come to mind:

    Cheers Jim. I already have a battery amp and was really hoping for a battery powered mixer with reverb so I can put the output into audio and video recording devices.

    Some of them line outs that could be used for that. This one says "Speaker-emulated headphone output doubles as a line-level output".

    Behringer XENYX 1002B 10 channel mixer can be operated by 9V batteries as well as plugged in. It's under $100, & most sellers offer free shipping.

    Camper man, I own one that has 4 1/4" inputs/the Nady MM-14FX. It applies the delay effect equally to all channels. The EQ is preset to pretty much where it needs to be.

    I also own the Behringer Xenix 1002B, which has enough channels to run an entire band. It does have an effects send where a battery powered reverb pedal can be used as a destination effect, controlled by each channel on the mixer.

    I recommend recording everything dry with separate tracks for vocals and audio and using recording software, such as the free Audacity, to add effects during the mixdown:

    ...of which there are several similar apps available for smartphones and tablets. Ric
