    The Roland AC-33 stomps all competition in your stated price range. The fact that it can also be powered by rechargeable NiMH AA batteries makes it a clear winner.

    I saw one of these the other day at a pawn shop. The size and design looked very appealing for an amatuer(me) who won't be playing for an audience. And I believe it would run on batteries.
    Think I might go back and get it, if it is still there.

    Yep, battery/mains, & built in effects.

    Are there any more options out there in the $300-$400 range, and if so, how are they different than the Loud Box Mini?
    In your price range, I would go for a powered pa speaker like the new QSC CP8. Has an input for instrument, and mic. And should be uncolored so you can add what effects you want.

    What did you end up getting? I have a NUX Mighty Lite Blue Tooth amp. Battery or AC adapter. 2 channels. A bunch of effects. It can be controlled via smartphone. It's tiny for sure. But, the sound is quite acceptable.

    Solid Mahogany Tiny Tenor from Pepe Romero/Daniel Ho. Low-G. I named it "LumiŤre"
    Kala Soprano KA-ASOV-S Spruce and Ovangkol. High-G I named "Blood, Sweat, & Tears"

    Cynthia Lin Performance uke. Concert scale with a cutaway Low-G
    Kala Soprano KA-KCT-S Ziricote fitted with Ernie Ball clear High-G

    I have yet to make a purchase. Iíve been trying to find local stores that carry some of your suggestions, but surprisingly have had some difficulty. No one seems to have any of the Rolands in stock.

    The good news is that the venue I thought I needed one for actually has a direct plug in, so Iíve been using that for now. The hunt continues!
    Soprano: KoAloha Opio Acacia
    Tenors: KoAloha KTM-00, aNueNue UT200 Moon Bird, Pono MGTP5-PC
    Baritone+: Pono UL4-30

    I went back and got the Micro Cube. Didn't have an adapter cord, but sounded great on batteries. And I like the chrorus feature.
    Talked them down to $32, so should only have about fifty in it after I get a cord.
