Almost too good to be true

kalaitsa, 23.03.2018
I am musician for almost 40 years and I always have tube amplifiers. I have to admit that I hate the sound of transistor amplifiers. I've been owner of Fender Twin Reverb Silverface, Fender Vibrolux, Marshall JCM 900 with 4X12? Celestion cabinet, Music Man 2X10? EV combo and now I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe George Benson.
I bought this amplifier for two reasons: the weight (12Kg) because I am getting old and the reviews that claim that it sounds like a real tube amp.
Roland says that they tried to emulate Fender Bassman. Does it sound like the Fender Bassman amp? Not 100% but it is close. You can still hear the metallic highs of a transistor amplifier but you can correct that with the equalization or with smart compressor settings.
With pedal effects though, sounds great. Better than expected. The tone button I think is useless because makes the amp sound like a transistor amp.
The button that really surprise me is the boost button. I never though that I am going to use that because I don't play blues and I never use crunch sounds. I play Jazz and sometimes Fusion and I use pedals for that. But I have to admit that boost is incredible.
Do I recommend this amp? If you play Blues, Jazz and you want a light weight amp, loud enough for small gigs and the ability to study in your room with 0,5Watts, the answer is yes, this amp totally worth it.

I hate digital amps but not this one

06.09.2016
I watched many reviews of this amp before buying it. I really hate the fizz that passes for gain in non-valve amps. But this one has none of it, I don't know how.

It does Fender almost as well as Fender does it. Great bottom end and sparkling cleans. Not *quite* the chime that Fender has but very close. If you want the bottom end make sure it's on a floor or hard surface. The loss of bass is large otherwise.

I love it. I play blues and need no pedals at all with this amp. I had my usual array plugged in at first and then discarded them all one by one. Now I have none in the chain and the amp is just sweet on its own.

For the record I have a Marshall JVM, a Mesa Boogie 5:50 and a Hughes and Kettner 18. A good array of valve amps and this Cube still sounds great to me. I use it all the time for practice as it's easier than waiting on standby for valves to warm up and cool down. Also the sound is good at all settings from 0.5 to 30W.

A beauty and cheap too!
