I've had this little amp for roughly half a year. I just use it for practicing and it suits that purpose perfectly. To put what I'm about to say into perspective, I also own a couple of other modeling ampls; a Line 6 Flextone Plus and a Line 6 Spider II. Probably the fairer comparison is to the Flextone Plus since that only has a single speaker. The cube offers a really nice array of modeled amp tones. It's not over the top...just a nice batch of blue-chip amps. The models are very well done. The real test of a modeling amp is to try out different guitar and amp settings and see what comes out. I actually have the actual amps for a number of these models and have run some comparisons just to satisfy my curiosity. What I've found is that the Cube's models generally come pretty close to nailing the "real thing". The slight differences that I've noticed can be attributed to physical aspects such as the number of speakers or a specific amp's reverb. Beyond that, every amp manufacturer ends up with some variance within the same models...which is why one Marshall Plexi might sound a little different from another one, even though they are the same make. I'd say that the Cube's models are pretty much as good as the ones on my Flextone. Given that Line 6 does a nice job of amp modeling, this is a compliment for Roland (always a leader in technology anyway).The amp effects are just "sufficient". Compared to the Flextone, this is where the Cube is a little weak. That said, the effects that the Cube has are very easy to use, which is a plus, but there isn't any real depth or variety. Obviously, this is easily solved by adding a few nice pedals from Roland's sister company, Boss.For a little one-speaker combo, this amp is REALLY super LOUD. I've got this small monster raised of the floor (about waist high) and it really slugs out the sound. One of the nicest features of this amp is that it retains the respective model's tone nicely even when "cranked" up. The Flextone, while also "loud", doesn't hold the model tones as well when the volume is really turned up. I've never recorded with this amp, though it does have a direct line. I usually use a Line 6 POD for that kind of thing...or I just mic an actual amp the old fashioned way (sometimes, the "body" that you get this way just isn't something that a modeled tone really captures).Overall, I am extremely pleased with Roland's Cube 60. I really wish that this amp had been available when I first started out. Man...that would have been just fantastic.

Clean, this amp sounds amazing. It's jazzy, warm, and very crisp. Almost sounds tube quality. Distortion is a different story. I play metal, and this amp sounds terrible on every high-gain setting on it. The R-Fier sounds fuzzy and sucks for leads, but does alright for rhythm (hooked up to a 2x12 cab) while the Metal model sucks for rhythm and isnt very good for lead either. These were the only channels I actually used. All the others were bad. After 2 years of having it, it wont even turn on now. Dont get this amp if you play metal. If you play something like Jazz however, this would be a great amp.

Excellent Amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was looking into buying a new amplifier after my old peavey went. So I took a trip to my local music store and plugged a guitar into this amp to check it out. It blowed me away, something this size and for this price. I purchased it right away and didn't stop playing it all night. It's one of the best investments you could possibly invest in.

Cheap Plasitc

By Pantah

from NY

The amp is plenty loud and sounds decent.The plastic input jack keeps on falling into the amp.I have replaced it twice. The problem is that the plastic jack keeps cracking and causing the nut to fall off.

TRULY SURPRISING!

By BlueNote

from Oklahoma

See all my reviews

I've always had big amps so I bought this to have a small, lightweight amp for small gigs. First of all, this is a serious gigging amp with more power and a bigger sound than you would think could come such a small box. I was skeptical about the whole modeling thing, but this little sucker sounds great! Between the JC Clean and the Black Panel that's all I need. You can't go wrong with this amp.

Decent

By Lamppost

from Needham, MA

See all my reviews

This is amp is just ok. If you need a great, warm clean sound like I do, then this amp isnt really for you. However, it has many amp models on the distortion channel, which aren't very good, but they're there. The acoustic modeler is the only thing I really enjoy on this. The Input jack is crap, it fell through twice. I wish I spent the 350 on a used Fender or something.

Loud, Durable, and Super Awesome!

By mikePguitfiddlEE

from Saint Paul, MN

I've been looking for a solid, durable, great sounding amp at a decent price for quite some time. I was beginning to think that it wasn't going to happen. Then I stumbled upon the Roland Cube 60. I'm a meat and potatoes kind of guy, so a modelling amp is not what I was intending on purchasing. I had tried the Vox modelling amps, but when I played through this amp, I was blown away. Its got 9 models and some cool effects, but in my opinion the effects are pretty much 1 dimensional and I would probably never use them anyway, so they mean nothing to me. The models, on the other hand, are great. The acoustic model sounds pretty cool, but I won't use it. Black Panel, on the other hand, is my main choice of model. This thing is crystal clear with some sweet tone. Turn up the gain for a slightly dirtier sound. My favorite. I use this on stage with an Ibanez Tube Screamer and it sounds amazing.This amp is LOUD! Before I received my amp, I purchased a 2x12 extension cabinet with the intent of using it for larger shows. I don't need it. That is all I'm going to say about that.I'm not going to go into detail about the other models. All I'm going to say is that this amp has some great sounds. Like previously stated, on stage I use the Black Panel with my own 2 or 3 pedals, but, I record a variety of styles of music for fun and this amp can do whatever I need to get the tone and feel I'm looking for. This is great little amp. Its loud, durable, has some excellent models and is inexpensive. Do yourself a favor and pick this thing up.

Good sound, but Low-Ohms LIE

This amp sounds and responds like a real tube amp.The effects are OK, not great. Chorus is an effect which must always be in stereo to sound right.Roland hypes power ratings by using a low ohmage speaker and peak rating, as opposed to true RMS.In general, tube amps supply REAL rated power into 16 ohms. For solid state amps, you can effectively halve the rated power, and if the company uses ratings that are hyped into 4 ohm (or even worse 2 ohm speakers) then you can halve the rating again. In other words:60 tube watts RMS into 16 ohms =30 solid-state watts (peak rating) =15 watts ( real) into 4 ohm speakersRealistically, this amp performs like a good 15 watt tube amp. Just so you know. That's OK for most small venues. If you use two and run them in stereo, then you will have a pretty good set-up. Plan to replace the cheap plastic input jacks. That will save you grief on the gig.Other than that, this is a good-sounding, easy-to-use, rugged workhorse amp.

I had just gotten this amp yesterday and WOW i was in aww for about an hour then i plugged it in and just couldnt believe the sound that came from it. i have and ibanez 520 and it sound better on this then my friends lp. the features and tone are incredible. ive played peavey and fender halfstacks at the music shop and yea they might have been louder (not much this is louuuuud for a 60 amp) but they sound nowhere near the sound quality. i would recommend this amp to anyone.

Excellent Amp

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

I was seriously considering going to a Line 6 product as an upgrade. However the cost was pretty high for the bells and whistles that I wanted. I gig a lot and hate carting a ton of gear. I played this amp for grins and was amazed at the solid tone that this amp had. The built in Chorus, Flanger and delay are VERY good. My only problem is that you cannot adjust the mix level (only the rate). The reverb is not the best (passable), and tremolo is O.K. The Amp modeling is very good. I do not like the Metal setting though (all the other settings are nice). Get a stomp box instead for a good Metal crunch. Additionally, the Dyna Amp setting is VERY nice. Be warned, you must buy the F5U (for unlatched) switch pedals to turn on/off effects and stuff. These pedals do not come with cords (gotta buy those too). I suggest 2xF5U's for channel and FX control, and a volume pedal. Additionally, this amp is LOUD for just 60W. It has a warm tone of a tube amp without the tubes (comes very very close) without having to run a hot plate. Very good amp!!

Great Little Amp

Don't get me wrong this amp is great. Just wanted to let you all know to make sure you get a Boss FS-6 or a couple of Boss FS-5U footswitches to be able to change the channels and turn the effects on and off. You will need 3 pedals total if you want to be able to toggle the reverb off and on also.Thats the only problem I have, I wish it had come with a 3-button footswitch, but I guess if it did it would have cost much more.

If your like me your been reading all these reviews for that last 4 weeks trying to determine what to get to replace whatever you need to replace in my case a Carvin. I went to my local music store and the guy that worked there suggested this to me and let me tell you this thing has some serious guts for a little amp don't be fooled by it's size it's got some grunt to it and the effects are made by roland which is essentially made by Boss. It doesn't have the tone of my Carvin but it still sounds good. Well worth the money.

I just received this amp for christmas and all i can say and keep saying is WOW! This amp is amazing all the features and effects. the amp models are so real and crisp and the dyna amp effect is also a really cool affect. Another thing is they say its only 60 watts but it feels more like 100. this amp is incredible.

Great little amp!

By JasonK-LyBZA

from CA

See all my reviews

This is a great little amp! I have owned it for around 6 months and it has worked great every second! It is plently loud and has EXCELLENT sound quality lots of great bass! Now the one thing that disapoints me is the effects. There are only like 6 of them and you can't edit them. The digital delay is not nearly long enough for me. It is hardly any delay at all! But, I think I will be getting a pedal to solve the problem. I just need more effects and more delay times and stuff. Great amp otherwise! Some nice crunchy distortion a little more would be nice, but I guess that would be to metal-ish.

Bar None

By MetalHokie

I bought this amp a few weeks ago and I can't say how impressed I am with it. I like to play heavy metal and this amp has 4 distortions just for metal. They all sounds fantastic. This amp has power too. I've never taken it above 4 and that was blowin the paint off the walls. The price was right. This thing is durable as they come and sounds terrific. Definitely a good choice for any person. Distortion sounds great and the clean is even better.

Darn that thing is loud!

By BluesGuy24

from Wilmington, DE

This amp amazed me when I first plugged in. I was looking for a good, clean tone and something that had nice sustain and a good crunch, you know, for the blues. Well, this amp delivered. The features and amp models will keep you busy for days. I would recommend this amp to any players from beginner to pro, classical to metal. A great amp.

Great overall product.

By deserteagles50

from Starkville, MS

I've been playing this amp in my band for about a year now and I really like it. All the features built into are great. The amp is surprisingly loud and sounds great with any pedals you hook up to it. One thing I don't like about it is that the input jack keeps breaking off and falling inside the amp. It's made of plastic and keeps cracking. Besides that it is a very rugged good amp.

Is this the best?

By Me-i_w0f

from C.R

Well, i have heard this amp in a store just yesterday & i love it right away, i was totally impressed by its output, if the store guy didn't told me it was a 60 W amp i wouldn't belive it, also all the COSM amps sound very cool, all about it was nice, but i haven't buy it yet, so i would appreciate if someone tell me if this is like the best for rehearsal & for little gigs, or if it is only good for little spaces.

Good amp w/1 drawback

By Fasteddie, peaceman!

from Near ATL

My buddy has owned 1 for about 2 months - had to return, it died, but Roland made it good. Limitation: can't tweak effects. Great feature: DynaAmp which is attack the string lightly: clean sound; pick hard, sound breaks up into good distortion. Pretty cool, though it would take some practice for a heavy-handed picker like me!

Wonderful

I'm pretty much a noob at guitar, I've only played for about a year. I've always used a Crate 15R and wanted something, well, better. I just wanted to have a nicer tone and have a more versatile amp. So my guitar teacher tells me about this thing, and I play it for a few months in the store everytime I went in. So, my mom got it for my birthday and I couldn't be happier! All of the amp models on this baby are absolutely spectacular and the effects are pretty good as well but as someone mentioned before, somewhat limited. This thing can get LOUD, too! The only downside is that the COSMs and effects aren't in a loop, but that's okay I'll just use pedals. Overall an incredible amp that I'm very greatful to have recieved.

Glad I held out for this amp

By Sleepy

I was looking to get a Blues Cube amp but could not find one ANYWHERE to try out. Tried this instead and I'm glad I did. The tube amp model is really good and the Jazz Chorus clean channel is also smooth. More features than the Blues Cube. Preferring to play clean for jazz and oldies, so I wasn't looking for all the modeling. Dyna Amp model is cool too. But the models are good and may be of use since it is so hard to find anyone to play jazz with. Would have liked the footswitch to have been included. Great sound, good price, easy to use - GREAT AMP.
