Coco65's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Good amp."

Roland Cube-30X
It has a power transistor. It delivers a power of 30 Watts.
I love the facade of settings, with the top left buttons equalizer in the top right contains the amp effects (Chorus / Flanger / Phaser / Tremolo and Reverb / Delay), bottom left button and its Clean; and finally at the bottom left of the volume + gain for the selected interface offering with several sounds at the bottom center of the facade of settings.

UTILIZATION

The configuration is simple.
This amp is not an amp of high quality, but I think it sounds great and it has some pretty nice sounds.

SOUNDS

It suits my style of music.
I play this amp with all my guitars.
My favorite sound is: his chosen Stack Classic; Gain 6; Bass 4; Middle 6; Treble 6.5; Reverb and finally settled on the 4th line.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this amp for about 7 years, and I'm pretty happy with the sound it produces. I'll still buy me soon a Vox AC-30 amp, because it seems that it sounds fire god on these amps ..!
With the experience I change my amp, because it begins to be old and I want a lot of change amp!

antho.p's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Ideal for a good start"

Roland Cube-30X
Amp transistor, a power of 34W to 2W switchable via the power squeezer
Connectors: Input Jack, to. in, footswitch in, recording out.

8 different modeling amps and clean Roland JC120.
Effects: Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo, Delay, Reverb.

UTILIZATION

Simple setup, no need for a manual for a sound, one branch, one climbs the gain and volume, selected amp model you want and go!

Moreover, the presence of the Power Squeezer allows you to limit the volume 2w, especially convenient for playing in the apartment 'or late at night!

SOUNDS

Played with a Cort G254, typed HSS Strat and an Epiphone LP Standard 1996.

This amp very well suited for a beginner to find his sound, home, rehearsal or just flat!

The simulations are performed, qualities Boss pedals, you can find anything, really, the big sound of Fender Mesa Boogie, through Vox and Marshall or Peavey. Some are obviously better than others do, such as the Vox AC30 simulation called "brit combo" is rather dirty, but the Fender "Black Panel" or Mesa "R-Fier" are downright friendly.

Similarly to the effects was of good quality, sound Boss, not surprising since Roland owns the brand! The only regret is not being able to use the reverb and delay together.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 years. I hesitated between this one and the Vox VT20, but the latter is more expensive, I chose Roland, and I'm not disappointed. I remake this choice without hesitation, especially for a beginner, with good value for money, for a comprehensive amp.
We regret the lack of footswitch supplied with the amp only option.

26jerome75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Bof bof, does not deserve its reputation."

Roland Cube-30X
Modeling amp (7 total).
30 W, it seems very powerful this amp in any case, I can barely push it home. However, the HP I still look a bit limited in quality.
A section of Digital Effects: Reverb and Delay on the same button, Chorus, flanger and phaser on another, we can have 2 effects at once.

UTILIZATION

The operating principle is very simple: we choose a simulation, then adjusts the gain and the master. That's it. The highlight is this: setting childish, not even need to hack or read the manual. But ... (See below)

SOUNDS

Well now, the problem is that the sound is flat. All simulations are ringing about but it's plastic, not natural, but narrow and very compressed. Only the acoustic amp simulation is bluffing. Other distort the sound of the guitar, especially how to imitate a Mesa Boogie. Whatever position a microphone, you basically have the same sound. That may be fine when we play in groups or to register on a backing track, that is to say, when the sound of your guitar is a bit hidden by other instruments since then rendering simus is quite flattering.
I have a few effects pedals a lot, I tried to plug into the amp's clean channel. But the problem is that this channel is also a simulation (Fender I think). In itself, this simulation is quite clear, but when you plug a pedal on it, it sounds again very compressed. All the nuances of the game, the imperfections disappear. One has the impression of playing well when ...
I did the test with non-guitarists: I plugged my Hagstrom in my Hughes and Kettner 15 watt with a pedal and then in the Cube with the same effect and I played the same thing: they all found the Hughes sound much more natural and open.

OVERALL OPINION

Well, it was still a good thing this amp: squeeze mode that lowers the volume to 2 watts, which can push the amp in the evening while having the impression that there is still pressure in the acoustic speaker, that's really a plus.
But all things considered, I do not do it again this purchase. Anyway, all the simulations I've heard (pod, vox, etc.) all sound very unnatural when you have a poor standard amp, even rotten, next to make a difference with some effects pedals well chosen. And yet I am far from being a guitar god and I have not tested it so much stuff: I just have an ear accustomed to good Hi-Fi before, one before the 2.1 and other mp3 128k rotten heard on an iPod with an HP dwarf.

Lodja's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland Cube-30X
Amp Aesthetics debatable, but pretend nanmoins extremely solid.
In fact, during my research dmarches amp, the emblem had to be excluded by that physically, he did not face a real guitar amp, but plutt that of an amp to do everything closely resembling a toy.
For the rest, see other views and / or the Roland site (with sample).

UTILIZATION

Very easy to use, even for a guy like me who has little exprience on this type of amp (I play mainly on electro-acoustics.)

SOUNDS

Trs versatile amp that covers almost all horizons.
I use it on a Vintage AV6h Signature (HSS configuration), and get a relatively wide range of sounds.
As in some previous ones opinion, damage may be that the effects are not switches on spars
The acoustic simulation is quite good, but hey, even if he did not prtention replace electro guitars.

OVERALL OPINION

Trs good amp that ngoc around 180-200.
Report qualitsonoritprix trs good for me.
If I do not 10/10, it is only to take account of the Aesthetics, and some effects that you can not use simultanment.
I thought for a moment to Vox, but they seemed more limited, and versatile months.
I therefore recommend that anyone looking for a versatile amp transistor without breaking the bank.

BassWalk's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland Cube-30X
See the chart for Retailer CHARACTERISTICS.
All transistor, it is good 30 watts.
Connectivity complte.
Rglages and full effects.
I do not use the tuner I Intgr prfre my Korg DT-10 but it is a dtail.
It's all in one for home use.

UTILIZATION

Super simple setup.
Easily obtained sound that one seeks.
The manual? No need so it's easy and intuitive.

SOUNDS

It can cover a large variety of styles. This is also why I bought it.
I use a Gibson SG Supreme and Monster Cable Studio Pro type SP 1000 (not given these cables between parenthses). I will review my prparer a Gibson I would have a ds soon as it is a MODEL exeptionnel in my opinion.
JC Clean channel is extra clarity and DEFINITIONS.
In the Lead channel, the acoustic is just as fabulous, I love the channel R-Fier trsraliste to sound the TDCA. Channel Black Panel I really like too ... all is well in fact.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it since November 2007.
It is convenient for the apartment, while one is perfect in terms of sound quality. In addition, there are all the effects needed. No need for cumbersome pedals.
It is my opinion the best quality price for home use. I hsit with VOX trs good too but I found the Roland even more versatile.
I can only advise for this award. The finish is superb and the control panel easy to read and well organized.
But Beware! It is obvious that the quality of the guitar and the quality of the cables involved in large part to the result final sound. There is nothing ... nothing! Although sr on scne, an SG SUPREME will not only the 30X, you still remain even though raliste and put this place ...
I Fully agree in the opinion of rdig Previous trs bfrete well (but also in the noan2006 and mursau sr good!).
In short, given the price, for use in an apartment, a purchase is risk free that you can not regret that it is for beginners or an express.
You can go j'ter p'tit a look at the opinions of the Cube 30 at all. This is the same as the 30X Previous gnration little prs.

bfrete's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland Cube-30X
30 watts transistor with HP 10 '
characteristics identical to the cube 30 (no X) with Power Squeezer + + tuner
Intgr effects:
chorus
flanger
phaser
tremolo
delay
reverb
record and headphone output
footswitch output

UTILIZATION

The rglages are super simple, ergonomics is right up there with a little tampering we get any sound imaginable (or so ..) that the electric guitar has had since its creation!
the manual is frankly not ncssaire or to familliariser with the possibilities of any beginners to bte, but drop it quickly ...
the power squeezer is handy for big sound at low volume
It's great Intgr the tuner (2 possibilities, note or chromatic note) no need to remove the jack to match ..
one can just regret that the footswitch is either not provided ..

SOUNDS

I like just about every style of music, blues, rock, jazz, reggae, funk etc. .. no problem finding the right sound quickly.
I possde strat us a 40th and a gretsch 5120 and honestly I fell on my ass about the potential of this small bazard! gretsch sound with jazz on the position jc clean or even lead to "black panel "or" tweed "trs with little gain and too much of an attack is superb, clear and prcis same for the saturation of the micro needle the quality of sound is impressive!
modlisation the extras are really the brit combo found that sound pretty good characteristic of vox ac 30, mdium and powerful in the grain as if it rained!
simulation of the bassman (tweed) is excelente, with the stratum and a little gain, the bottom knob 3, the crunch is down for a good blues sound to the grain!
the simulation Marschall (stack classic) out good saturation dcoiffe
mtal position is in the same register but beefier
Then this is the position "R proud" of the simulation mesa boogie and careful!
the very big sound, true to the original (all proportion garde ...) saturation prcise fine and a little distant so characteristic of the mesa is enormous, when you get to this position, difficult to leave. ..
the last position "Dyna Amp" allows you to vary the sound of course, the saturation is gradually emerging as the attack and the dynamics of your game with just be my taste, an output level lower than the other position.
the effects are of very good quality EX: intermediate position on the gretsch pickups, position "tweed" on the amp with a bit of delay and you get the sound rockab par excellence!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it nonstop for a week of OCAS bought (but nine ..) 100 on ebay, I think it can not beat the same satisfaction as about 200 nine report quality price Breathtaking! (Chinese-made forces ...)
I tried the Vox Valvetronic 30 watt although some function, I have not found a better, except qu'videment the mouth of the vox is when even something else but good. ...
hard to say now what I prfre on this amp is still a bit chilly .. I encourage all beginners guitar or not (I play for about fifteen years) looking for a very good quality amp with a very mini size (much smaller than the vox power scabies .. ) to rush this little marvel! it is obvious that the configuration of this amp permetra to treat in home studio or playing in small club, the 30 watts are the concert but for a larger scale will require predict a bit bigger ..
I personally think that roland did much left to prove in terms of performance and technology will do well to focus now on the CRITERIA equally important design, without being obnoxious because this amp does not compete with some of the race condition ....
I put a note up taking into account the performance dlivrs by this amp and of course its price ..

noan2006's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland Cube-30X
30W transistor amp.
2 channels: clean and modeling effects with 8

UTILIZATION

Configuration, unwanted and extremely simple.
Branch and it's good!
Some examples of presets in the manual, but it would be nice to have other ...

SOUNDS

Canal clean: RAS - The clear, pleasant listening.
Modeling: Simulation of different amp:
Acoustic: Electric with a lot, not tested with an electronic
Imitation VOX FENDER imitation, imitation and MARSHALL METAL: Hallu the c!
It really looks the same, the sound of fender banging, the sound character of Marshall, and all with an overdrive successful for everyone.
Personally, I play guitar with a "medium" (Fender Squier Stratocaster standart), and that makes it serious.
The effects are also excellent: delay, chorus, tremolo, reverb, everything is there.

OVERALL OPINION

I play the guitar for about a leisure and a half years, and before I had a marshall mg 15 dfx. This is the day and night. I most feel like a marshall to me with the simulation of roland, rather than the marshall 15w. As for saturation, the ESR INCOMPARABLE between the two.
If I had my choice again, I reprendraix this amp in a heartbeat. The amp is ideal for an apartment or too powerful: it deposit something serious!
Do not hesitate, it's the bomb.

mursau's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland Cube-30X
Amplifier Roland Cube 30 X
Power 30 watts rms
guitar input (on users press one button to clean or lead channel
connect a pedal, a headset, CD/MP3 player

UTILIZATION

Relatively simple setup
yes the sound is correct in this price range
I had the manual in English, but I download roland french site

SOUNDS

I itches a little bit of everything, rock 60 years, a bit of jazz, acdc, santana
we get almost any sound you want is a story set at the beginning when I received it, I thought it was worthless, but in reality it is a matter of adjustment is going of 3 buttons, volume and gain of the amplifier and the volume of the guitar, I have a Line 6 Variax 600, and the sounds are correct (there are probably others who are better amp, I deepened by later), also in acoustics, I tried a 100 euro bought a guitar on ebay, brand "infinity" and she sounds great typed out in Gybson clear sound with a bit of reverb, the other not bad either, of course the purists will only talk about gybson or fender amp with a vox ac 30, but for beginners like me and above who want to have fun, it's more than enough
all sounds are correct nothing to say, here is the roland site demos and they sound, go to cube 30 and 60, (I forgot there is a button that Shifts to play softer, ca put the amp has 2 watts of power, even when playing in an apartment or you want to rest your ears!)

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 2 weeks
I like its small size and light weight, ample power
I have not tried other amp, for now this one fits my ear
excellent value for money
I would do this choice, a good little amp
