What I really love about this amplifier is the ability to plug in your ipod, Mp3 player, or cd player to jam along with your favorite songs. This makes practicing at home so much more fun because it then teaches you to play in time with your favorite bands.
I like playing this amp with a Fender Strat or a Charvel guitar. Since the majority of this amp is based off of high gain channels I like to get a lower to medium bodied wood like ash or alder to gt that sizzling grind that is so familiar with 80's metal rock.
Another cool thing is how good the effects processor is in this amp. The flanger and delays sound superb. They mix quite well with the metal distortions and extreme distortion.
One thing that I absolutely love about this this amp is the recording output. This enables you to go direct with headphones or run straight into a sound mixer. At new these units come in at around $260 which is a steal of a price.
I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs a solid practice amp and doesn't want to break the budget. The ability to have a tuber and all the effects you want to go along wit a clean and dirty channel makes it an all in one amp.

Bison_Ravi's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Nice little amp"
Much has been said d & ja.
Very easy to use, nothing to say.
This is an amplifier used to work, the drum machine is really a great tool. Powered to work without waking the little family. As for the effects is modeling .... So little interest .... but hey, marketers have decided that for a given price, you have to give the illusion of having a max.
I do not use only clean, the saturations are crappy, the delay happening again, the boost unusable .... as if we could have a flanger, a distortion, tremolo, delay ect ... for less than € 200!
I would have preferred a rechargeable battery rather than a BAR and a little more efficient because this amp is very good at what he does, nomadic, small, light, powerful enough, the correct quality and integrated BAR is really good idea.
I've had two weeks, I play every night and sometimes during the day, when I spend 10 minutes on my shovel from 2 ... no time to heat lamps.
It's a great second amp. The value for money is average, but it is not given that choice I would do again because it has no credible alternative.
Fender2a's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Apéri-Cube ... We want more!"
Setup: Simple but complete for all play styles
manual: it was not provided with .. but no need
Sound: good sound right away
I play with a Fender Start U.S. 1981, leduc D3S, and a Line 6 Variax and the Cube meets present in all config.
I play mostly with a hint of overdrive, a touch of chorus and a touch of delay and I find my happiness in this little Cube
I've had it a month but I Impresssions to have for years because it is assimilated very quickly.
Value for money: 10/10
I am amazed by the sound inversely proportional to its size.

Sutch's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Configuration very simple. His dmentiel for an amp of this size. Manuel trs simple but can do without.
MODELS 7 amp. I have personal preferences for the JC clean, the brit combo, classic and Rectifier. The simulation did not sound convinced yet but I must try again. The effects are nice: the flanger is good trs. The delay also. Only regret: the reverb knob is on the same so it's either one or the other. ESG has me personal. For bote intgre rhythms: not bad for work placement, many possibilities (jazz, rock, blues, latin ...). Only BMOL: the sound could be more raliste, do not expect the same made a real drummer.
I had a Line 6 Spider long ago. I sold it to put me on the electro-acoustic an AER. I bought this micro cube rx to get over the electric and quietly to save space. Sure, it's not an amp for scne but we can "jam" without blushing with other guitarists. This little amp is a good surprise and battery life is pretty good. I find that most raliste line 6 and the VOX DA5 INTERESTED. Good surprise: the tuner is chromatic chord chord with a long press. I am satisfied with the sound and yet I have known bigger amps and I'm picky. The power is sufficient to GNER neighbors! It has the quality and the Roland and srieux tural amlioration from the micro Cube. In short, even if a bit pricey (199 euro), I do not regret my purchase one second!

pipopopi101's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Parcontre something less conventional: this amp has a small drum offers a good range of styles (jazz, blues, rock, R & B, ...), configurable in tempo. This is very useful, and it changes the metronome, and ticking.
Just one small problem: no XLR output, but hey, you can use the output record.
As mentioned above, no-brainer to set this little beast.
I do not use that clear sound (simulation Roland Jazz Chorus) just to play with me without me tickle the ears and ears of others, with a Fender Start, a Gibson Les Paul and Ibanez RG100 (semi-hollow 70's ). Without wanting to advertise for excessive Roland, I can tell you that this little joker is stunning: the sound quality is definitely there. And reverb, that say, very beautiful and not invasive. In addition, it gives her little watts without complex 4 despite its small speakers. Well, it will not cover National Forest (for Belgium) or the Stade de France (France), it is not his goal, but to play at home, or with other soft version musicos, c ' is not bad at all.
As for the integrated drum machine, it sounds pretty good battery and non-tic-tic-boom-boom, so convenient to play in rhythm.
I play in the registry: blues - jazz, with a reverb set mid-term, a guitar tone was set mid-term and amp tone setting mid-term as well: nothing wrong, the Simut jazz chorus brings a very high quality sound. I do not know if it's true 100% with the original that I've never tried, but no matter: the sound is good, so it's ok for me. The distorted sounds, I do not use them.
The little creature accepts without flinching my 3 guitars by taking their signature sound properly clean.
To compare, I tried the little Line 6: I do not know why, it seemed colder, but hey, it's a matter of sensitivity with my own ears. This is certainly also a good product, like all Line 6 products (I have a small bass amp LowDown 110: it sounds this guy, and he also unabashedly, and, more importantly, when plugged into a sound via its XLR output, that mind-blowing). So I tried the little fender lamp, he completely naked view settings: the parcontre, I did not quite captured what he could bring. Know!
Expect to pay about 200 euros for it all. For me, it's worth its price.

Manual provided and in all languages (in French please, for those who had the first micro cube). Very easy to use, it is very simple, a ring right away.
You know the micro cube? Trs it sounds good! The RX is over! Dja power is the appointment! Good bass though consistent, beautiful highs not screaming. Bass, middle, treble trs effective. The four speakers project sound wonderful! Clear sound, overdrive, saturation is the trs good (as with microphones single or double).
I do not play mtal, but you can easily get the sound correct with the way that dmnage. Mtal mode, not too essay at the moment (I will continue testing, and I will modify this review). All methods are good! The clean sounds great! Effects, not too tried the reverb is good, good Dlay. The sound of rhythmic patterns is good trs.
I just buy it! Have a good sound throughout the collection's outdoor or traveling, no lugging pedals. Tuner (trs prcis), rhythm box (what a good ide!), Several amps, what foot to play on the beach! 13 hours of autonomy and continuous background is plutt well, because really, the guy is powerful. For me, this RX is in the squad of the best head amp modlisation! Unbeatable when compared to micro spider! It is a micro cube trs trs amlior! Trs a good evolution of the micro cube. The only default uncorrected by Roland, it must be: No footswitch jack for changing the amp. There is indeed a footswitch jack, but it controls the start / stop function and tap tempo pace of the box. For that, I put that 7 of the opinion that the overall story a little bit of this amp.
APRs have made many express, I find that when you plug an mp3 player and that we push this one, when playing, the amp hard Exceeds one-half of volume knob. It has its limits! Gnant but nothing if we do not push! on the other hand, we can push the pace and play hard mode without the disruption!
