Cube Street EX
Matias M., 12.10.2016
I tried a Cube Street (non EX) before purchasing this.

As a PA: Backing music + Guitar + Singer this is the unit to get. Period.

The set of speakers have a much better overall sound for the job, pristine highs and more bass and is also loud.

As a Guitar amp alone is also very good, it is LOUD!...it will give you more than enough dBs even at medium power.

The models are good, certainly usable, I like specially the Clean and Overdrive tones for Jazz, but I tried the crunch/lead and sounds about right to me, good bassy chug chug sound and good metal lead.

The reverb is quite decent and you DO need it since is stereo and your guitar input is gonna be mono (they could do it stereo I guess, but that means double the DSP taken by the amp model)...so with this unit you want to use mono based FX pedals as Gate/Comp/Mono Chorus/Delay.

You can also connect your guitar to the Line Inputs, so if you have a stereo pedal (as a MT100BT) it would work perfectly.

I don't think the reverb sounds metallic or unpleasant at all, the delay could benefit of some volume knob, currently you can only adjust the delay time with the knob. Thankfully Roland set the delay volume so is usable in most scenarios, from slapback to long delays. I'm gonna be using my FX pedal anyway.

The three band EQ in Instrument/Mic sections is very welcome, I had troubles getting a good voice on the smaller Roland Street as it didn't have a "mid" band.

I think this amp has everything you need, plus the portability. It is indeed not as heavy as it looks.

I would recommend the smaller Street for those who need just a guitar amp, I've got the Red one before and is light loud and very cute for just a guitar. But for those wanting an all round solution this is the way to go.

I will probably buy another at some point to have the pair and be able to open the stereo.

the perfect busking amp?
Mark4954, 13.01.2015
Still testing this amp but first impressions are it is almost exactly what my daughter needs for busking. There are a number of YouTube demos and reviews, make sure you watch those too. Impressive that so much can be got from just 8 AA batteries - quality appear solid and most of the modelled amps are useful - though 'crunch' seems a little useless for my daughters uses - also she would prefer a system that allows boosted channels of any of the voices to be saved, and to be able to access these via the footswitch - my understanding is that it's only possible to turn reverb and chorus on and off with the basic footswitch that is compatible with the amp - i.e. there's no way of creating a lead boost of any of the modelled amps for solo use - for this it looks like you need to use a separate pedal board with a boost pedal and play your board's effects through the amp's clean channel. The CUBE iPad app is good, but a few more features, like the ability to control channel volumes, and guitar volumes, instead of just the volume of the backing track when playing live, would have been good - as would have been a more ecconomical carrying case!

UPDATE - after 8 months the amp has developed a fault on the main power switch - seems like a loose connection / solder, power cuts intermittently and without warning, also power switch often doesn't turn on power unless the whole unit is tilted forward. Contact Thomann and awaiting return details from Customer Services Dept.

For street use this is is a good amplifier, it's loud and you will be heard above the bus noise directly in front of you. The effects are good and the power switching is a great feature.Long time battery use is obtained this way. You can add your backing tracks through the separate input using the supplied cable if you like. It's not for me but good to see that it's there. Lots of variety with inputs and outputs. I have used acoustic and an electric guitar(squire telecaster) with this
amp. The sound quality on the other hand is a little disappointing (especially regarding vocals) for what you would expect from wonderful Roland family. Still though I'm glad I have it and I have even played small gigs with it and got paid.A little bit expensive for what you get.

AWSOME
Justin C., 28.01.2017
Bought this for light entertaining and busking also to use while I'm camping and AWSOME, light weight, great sounding amp which ticks all the boxes and plenty of bass for such a small amp can't wait for summer to come to get it out doors. Love singing and performing so will be an added piece to my arsenal of kit
