This has it all for the beginner. Versatile & Sturdy. Nothing in its price range compares to this amp. This product makes my $100 electric guitar sound like a $1000 instrument. The amp modeling features are great and give you several different "virtual" amps to help you find your style.

I have a tough time rating this because I plain out don't like the amp though I owned one for five years. It was the amp kept at the girlfriends. However, this winter I saw an amp pluginplay, and I sold my Roland Microcube. At times I thought I liked it, the Black Panel was okay . . . the lead drive was okay . . . the jc was okay . . . but, about the same time I bought this, I bought a Vox DA-5.

I had to quit playing for years due to my finger. When, I began playing again, I was surprised to find that I really didn't like this amp. I thought I had. But, it is digital and as cold as ICE; especially, in comparison to the Vox DA-5. The Microcube does take double AA's but, I can't say anything more positive than that except it was sturdy, durable, and well built.

Don't underestimate this tiny amp

By nashvilletk

from Undisclosed

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

For size, weight and value this is an awesome tiny amp. It's perfect for small-space practice or jamming, but I've also used it for pro recording using the Brit Combo setting. (The other amp settings are OK, but the Brit Combo is outstanding for getting that classic Vox AC-30 sound at an ear-saving level.)

I also take it on the road when I fly solo or with trio as it fits in my suitcase and is so light! Amazing amp for the dough. Soundmen are always knocked out when they put a mic on it and it sounds like a real quality amp though PA and monitors.

Plus I've beat the crap out of it for 2 years and other than broken strap it's like new.

(I also use the smallest Fender Frontman amp for suitcase flying. It's terrific: louder and cheaper than Mini Cube... but I have to use my pedalboard to get tones I need... whereas you can plug into Mini Cube, choose Brit Combo, set gain low and volume high and... voila!)

My only complaint with it is that it would be nice if you could turn the internal compression off/on. If you boost signal with a pedal, the amp's compression kicks in harder, and you don't get the desired bump in volume. Also would be nice to use line/headphone out and speaker at the same time. But hey, it's $130. Otherwise it's a 10, for sure.

Micro Cube

By Sully-uw8bJ

from Staten Island, NY

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

Great battery powered amp. Nice sounds from acoustic to heavy metal with a nice selection of sound effects. A little steep in price vs other smaller amps that may have greater output however the battery option is well worth it.

Portable and affordable! (And Uber Cute) :D

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

I've played acoustic guitar for abour 2 years, and just recently started learning barre chords (I know, late, huh?). We got a second-hand electric from my sister's friend. I convinced my dad to take us to the local music store to look for a beginner's practice amp. A worker there immediately suggested that we buy this Roland Micro Cube. My initial thought was "It's so small and cute, but can it play?". We tried it out in the store. It's fantastic! I didn't no much about amps then but anyone could tell that it is a superb amp. There's less need for petals, which is highly convenient, and it's not pricey at all. It also works as a microphone amp also. This is definitely a sublime amp, and if I had any regrets (i use that VERY loosely), it's that I wish I could have decided on it sooner! Other than that, I'm 100% satisfied with this amp :)

A Big Little Amp

By Michael Vecellio

from East Syracuse, NY

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

I bought the Roland Micro Cube for a practice amp for my living room. It turned out to be that and much more. It is a very small amp, about 10 inches by 7inches by 9 inches high, but the sound coming out of the 5 inch speaker will fill a room. The first feature that I noticed was the built in electronic tuning fork which will produce an A, Ab, or G. This is very handy if your guitar doesn't have an electronic tuner built in. It has a tone control that I wish had a wider range but is adequate for normal use. It has 4 digital effects that vary from chorus which gives the sound greater breadth and fullness to tremolo which gives a cyclic change in volume. It also has a separate delay/reverb control. It has 6 different amp types from making your electric guitar sound like an acoustic to R-Fier Stack which is great for lead. I like the JC Clean setting which gives an ultra clean smooth sound. It also has a Mic setting whcih can make the amp work as a PA system. It only has one input jack so you cannot use it for a guitar and mic at the same time, but it does have Aux In jacks so you can run your CD player or MP3 player. Over all, I am very impressed with this little amp and since it also runs on 6 AA batteries, I can take it outside without having to run an extension chord.

Best practice device I ever had

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

And I've had a few! Amps, multi effects, used the pc, and more. But this little Micro Cube is staying with me till one of us drops. Forget the great jc120 clean sounds. ignore that dynamic sensitive fender blackface. Pay no attention to the brits at all, and you still have one of the nicest sounding cd/in headphone out devices around. It's absolutely fabulous for headphone practice. The effects are all useable.. and it has a drive knob for how much tube, or how much overdrive or distortion you want out of the amp sounds. It's just great through the speaker, too. You can jam with your pc or stereo no problem. Batterys last quite a while.. and it comes with a power supply. But hey...Don't really forget all those amp sounds... they're really excellent. You can find good tones for any style of music with a simple twist of a couple of knobs. A no brainer that not only works easy, it sounds fantastic. I think everybody who plans on playing a long time ought to own this beauty.

Great portable amp for the price

By J. L. Lebel

from Queensbury, NY

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

I bought this to use as a small practice amp at home. The flexibility of the variety of settings makes it perfect for people who play a more than one style of music. I recently joined the contemporary music group at my church and another feature of the amp that I hadn't originally thought of as important came to light. There was a lack of electrical plugs in the location where we were playing, so I just ran it off batteries! It was actually loud enough to be heard along with the electric piano, accoustic guitar, electric bass and 10 singers. I was impressed. No, it won't be loud enough if you are playing with a rock band, but for a practice amp or for playing in quieter situations, I recommend it with no reservations.

Fantastic

By Jarrad Bryce

from Wollongong, Australia

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

This amp is an excellent choice for any guitarist. Especially those who busk quite often. The amp is small enough to fit inside a backpack to take anywhere and still produces an impressive set of tones and can go quite loud. This amp is really easy to use and is very high quality. Roland did a good job on this one.

Little amp, Big sound.

By Tom-5p64_

from Hawaii

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

I was looking for a small, go-anywhere practice amp that had some built in effects, and this little baby fit the bill perfectly. How Roland got such big kick-butt sounds into a small "cube" is beyond me, but the sound is amazing. More than enough loudness for practice, and maybe even performance in small room. The battery operation makes it incredibly convenient. I've been playing guitar for 40 years, and I've never seen a such a small amp with such great sound, portablility, and built in effects.
