Great little amp but it only takes three years for this amp to be so out of date that it's mind-boggling. This was state-of-the-art three years ago, now it is several generations behind. This amp does not replace tube amps. I bought 4 tube amps since. And one all digital amp with usable record out with great sounding cab sims. I also wanted a hand wired tube amp. The '64 Custom Deluxe Reverb. It has depth the Blues Cube does not have. Output tube bias tremolo. You have to hear it, play it to understand the attraction. I still use the Blues Cube in a practice setting but when I really want to have the best I play the Fender '64 Custom Deluxe Reverb.

This amp rocks, light weight and easy to dial in your tone. Power output switch works well. I use it for home, jam sessions and gigging and it hasn't let me down. Easy on the back as well the eyes. If you want tube tones without the hassle Roland has answered the call IMHO. Great for classic rock, blues, country!

Well-built, versatile amp. This amp, and the Tech21 TM60 are probably the best two 'serious' solid state combos on the market.

This amp replaced my Tech 21 TM60 (another terrific solid state amp). It doesn't have quite the oomph of the Tech 21, but it's considerably lighter, quieter, and much less complicated. In store, I tried out the Fender tube-based competition: the Blues Jr, the SuperChamp II, and the Pro. My guitar has single coil pups, and I found the Fender amps to be excessively noisy and (in the case of the SuperChamp II, rattly. IMO, the best solid state amps can come very close to the 'tube sound', and they're much more durable... further, they require no tube-warm-up time.

A transistor version of a Fender Blues Junior. However, the power scaling makes it more versatile than a Blues Junior. I have never needed to run it more than on the 15 watt setting. At home the 0.5 watt setting is perfect for practice volume. Can leave the amp on all day. Don't have to worry about tubes warming up, cooling down, making noise or dying. It plays like a tube amp with all the benefits and none of the deficits. It looks cool. Get desirable musical feedback when running high gain. I can play like a rockstar and the amp only needs 33 watts from the wall socket. Don't need a tone capsule because dialing in great tone is so easy.
