The amp is very simple in design and easy to dial in a good sound. Between the foot switchable boost and my guitar's volume, I never felt compromised by the single channel layout. The amp sounds great at low volumes, but benefitted from having the power section driven. I have not gigged the Roadhouse, but I'm confident in the build quality of this amp.
I played through the Roadhouse 30 with a Gibson E2 explorer. Mesa Boogie 4x12 cab. Strymon Flint.
The amp has a very squeaky clean sound but felt sterile to me, adding the Strymon flint's reverb I was able to get some excellent sounds however. The amp was unimpressive to me dry. I mostly enjoyed the lead sounds from the amp. You won't be able to get aggressive styles out of this amp without an external boost, but if you want a great base tone to add pedals and you enjoy dirty blues tones, this might be just for you.
The Cornford Roadhouse 30 is not exactly versatile, but in the right setting could prove an extraordinary value for money. If you are expecting the copious amounts of gain attainable in other Cornford's, such as the infamous MK50h ii , you will be sorely disappointed. To be able to buy into the Cornford heritage for less than $2000 may seem appealing, but with so many well-outfitted competitors, the Roadhouse 30 may leave you second guessing your purchase.
