yoTrakkz's review"big sound"

Roland Cube Street
Well, I read a lot of reviews for this thing before I got it, but I'm a skeptic until I get a hand’s-on. I expected it to be a bit thin with 6.5" drivers, but was very pleased with the sound coming out of it. I normally use the onboard effects of a SpiderIII or an RP-1000 through a keyboard amp so I am used to synthesized tone. The Street Cube for its obvious limitation, delivers a good variety of sound in a very small and powerful package.

UTILIZATION

I am definitely impressed with the sound this puts out. And even more surprising is the weight. The thing is about the size of a cinder block, but weighs in a just a few pounds. It is truly hard to believe that 6 AAA batteries puts out this volume. I've played it a lot since I got it last week, and have yet to run down the juice. I'm sure the "15 hours" of play time is optimistic, but it easily lasts several hours at loud volume.

SOUNDS

The FX are good. There are three basic flavors - several amp styles, chorus/delays and reverb. These plus the gain control gives you a pretty wide palette to play with. It wasn't too long ago that these FX alone would have cost more than this amp. You can get as clean as you want or crank it to the max. It's just a very versatile box.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought this to play some light blues for an outdoor wedding, where A/C was not available. Jack in an MP3 and you're good to play along with tracks. Truly the most fun piece of gear I've gotten in a long time. I don't expect to get rid of it, and with Roland quality, that means it'll be with my gear for a long time. Street Musician? - Don't bother looking anywhere else.

SOUNDS

Try this guitar with an acoustic and sing through the other channel and you'll be ready for a light gig or coffee shop. It takes batteries so before going out to the bar make sure you are prepared with full batteries.

It really doesn't matter which guitar you use with it because this little unit sounds pretty good in any guitar application. For nice clean then use a single coil guitar like a Fender Strat or a Tele. For the rock tones try a Les Paul or other humbucking style guitar.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these unit come in at around $270 which is a little on the high side for what it does. It is an amp and has 8 different amp models with 6 effects, but the price tag is a bit high for me with this amp.

I am a fan of the tone that you get out of it but to me the price it too high. The coolest feature which I'm guessing constitutes the expense is the two independent channels that can have two separate inputs for instrument and vocal mic. For PA purposes it is reasonable but if you just need a practice amp with all the effects then there are much better ones out there.

brassneck54's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Roland Cube Street
Technology at Roland usual with the settings that are found throughout the Cube Street series. But little power at home than adequate with a fairly good spread with 2 HP and tilt.
You can connect headphones, instrument, and especially singing simultaneously (Yamaha THR different series for example). The entrance song can also be used to enter a drum.

UTILIZATION

Not really need a manual, all the settings are simple and see what is research.

SOUNDS

Sounds nice for this type of amp for home and training both in bass, guitar, vocals, drum machine.

OVERALL OPINION

I've had five years and is a loyal companion with nylon storage and travel. You can play at home with a friend (s) on vocals, ringing your drum machine. Take it with you to play with other people.
No real concern for volume if we make him what it was built.

Choice over again, including the ability to connect both voice and instrument.

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

Roland Cube Street
See manufacturer: https://www.rolandus.com/products/productdetails.aspx?ObjectId=900

the +: 2 inputs with effects and equalizers independent LR06 battery operated, amp simulation, integrated tuner, 5.2 Kg, (Kensington lock point ... to hang up a time that we qd we play spades!? )

the -: no output lines, damage, this could have a nice little amp back or allowed to send the sauce in a mixer, no effects loop either.

UTILIZATION

Use battery-powered, well, a good ten hours with 2300mAh (a careful look at the capacity of rechargeable batteries you buy and nb: in the manual it says that it should not be used with rechargeable but we will not buy batteries every other day ...!)

It's a shame not to provide an automatic battery recharging qd is connected to the area as small HarleyBenton example.

Convenient and accurate tuning.

The HP is very directional and with a small air it looked pretty handy ... it is placed 1m in front of his feet and facing you ... and hop it's all good.

SOUNDS

The only criticism I would make is that the lack of character and will not necessarily good instrument, it gives the impression of a tin perfectly amplified ... qd but it's still very very very good, both on acoustic than electric.

The amp models are good (except the acoustic guitar simulation, zero). I especially like the "black panel" for clean sounds.
In saturation it sounds good but the grain does not really suit me ... but it is probably more than my guitar

Effects: same Microcube

The two are very Equalisers great job.

Other than that, nothing wrong it is very good and better than the Microcube eg. (No buzz already in the grave ...) Probably due to its broader HP and larger and better quality (6.5 "Neodymium)

Overall, there is no breath, unless it grows strong gains by increasing the saturation or volume in "micro". A very positive point. (... We often forget to turn it off ... since we do not hear it!)

Do not count an entire neighborhood awake in her clear, but it's more than enough to break the ears of a group of friends. In saturation, the volume is impressive: Correct simulation, gain fully, impossible to mount the volume knob more than 1 / 3 without losing his eardrums!

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for a few weeks it fits perfectly with what I needed and I use it mostly on batteries. I bought a Microcube but it did not suit me really ...

Roland makes it a tip-top for the use to which it is intended: on batteries LR6 amp with two inputs with independent effects. Made to be used with nothing other than the two instruments or microphones.
If you do not need these features ... go your way there as well to see better for less (in terms of portable sound system), for example in VOX DA Series.

At € 266 it's still a bit expensive in the category of small portable amp but it is quite complete and of excellent quality.

This choice I would do without hesitation.
