« Sweet little practice amp »

Publié le 04/27/11 à 13:15
This is the exact Roland Micro Cube standard but just on a red tolex casing. It retains all of the same features and operations as the original version. I personally like the red color of this one over the black of the standard amp. There is not up charge for the red version of this amp.

This little lunch box amp has packed quite a punch. These lunch box amps have been making a huge impact on the amp market as of the last ten years. Every manufacturer seems to be pushing their own version of a lightweight compact combo amp that is used for recording and jam practicing.

This little lunch box amp has some great tones to it. The cleans are nice and sparkly and the distortion is rather thick and meaty. The tone from this amp is a bit surprising. It has such a good tonal character that it makes playing the guitar fun. You can sit around and jam on this thing all day. Also run the output directly in to a PA or recording booth for bypassed cab operation.

SOUNDS

This tiny amp have such a usable tone and feel that it is hard to believe that its a 2 watt solid state amp. I like this amp with just about any guitar you throw at it. My personal preference is a Fender Stratocaster or a a superstrat of some kind. I like the note separation and clarity of the light to medium bodied woods. I find that it gives the thick tone some transparency and fuller tone. You can by all means use a Gibson Les Paul with this guitar but I like the Strats for this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

This might be the best amp in this price range. At new these amps come in at around $130, which isn't a bad price for something this resourceful. I like the price on it and the fact that you can run direct into a PA system.

My only beef with this unit is that it has this thing called the tuning fork which is basically what it says. Not an actual digital tuner so you'll need to get your tuning ear out and polish off that ear for real tuning like back in the old days.
