Transistor amplifier
2x 2.5 watts

It has 8 amp models and 6 effects.

UTILIZATION

The configuration could not be simpler: you plug your bass, you select an amp model, an effect if you are desires and then you play!

Do you get a good sound easy?
of course, everything depends on the bass you use ... For my part I play with an Ibanez SR500bm (Bartolini active electronics And I can find good sounds, playing with the equalizer knobs on my bass and amp.

The manual is clear and sufficient?
Honestly, the manual is useless!

SOUNDS

As for the sounds, my opinion is somewhat mixed on this.

I use it only with my Ibanez SR500bm, and I have not had a chance to test it with another bass.

Of the 8 amp models, there are about 3 that I use because I like much less others. (Octave bass I do not like, and there are amp models that look like enough.)
My favorites are Super Flat, Flip Top, and Bass 360. They sound good as long to dwell on the settings. (The fact that I can set the equalizer on my bass is a real +)

Despite this, I find that the sounds are a bit cold and synthetic in all ...
but hey, you have to know what you want because it's not really the heat of its motivated me to buy this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

I use the Roland Micro Cube Bass RX for about 1 month.

Likes:
-Simplicity
-The power it delivers compared to 2x2, 5 Watt announced. He knows to be heard!
-For a beginner like me, it's nice to have several types of sounds available
-The effects are well made (although I do not serve quasimment)
-The tuner and drum machine built are really nice! especially on a small portable amp like this

I like least:
, The similarity of some models
- I think there are 2 / 3 sounds pretty bad
- Sounds rather cold and synthetic

I tried several models before buying, but then it is only in this category! (Portable amp bass). So the choice is rather limited ^^...

I do not know if I would do this choice. I think so. Even if the models are a bit cold and synthetic, can come up with something good as long to spend some time on set.

I would recommend this amp for those who travel a lot, for as little amp "extra", it is very convenient, and delivers a more than adequate.
I would recommend for beginners (like me), who play just for fun in their room, and are somewhat undecided about what they want. The power is ample, and we arrive finally find happiness among the sounds on offer.
