I checked out every bass amp available that was 120 watts or less and every single one of them left me disappointed. Although this amp is more money than most in this wattage range it is well worth it when you consider size and weight and quality of sound. It emulates several different amplifiers and its Special Flat Setting is perfect for my Rogue Beatle Bass. I figured maybe the effects including distortion were over kill for a bass amp and my needs but when I got it home and read the manual I discovered a Fender Bassman 4x10 setting. It hit me, set the distortion with the setting and plug in my Strat or Tele Thinline. Wow awesome guitar amp as well. Ok how about my keyboard. Sure enough it kranks. Next is to try my acoustic guitar through it. Looks like I can just use this amp no matter what instrument I choose to plug in.I highly recommend this amp and say don't waste your money on anything else unless you are looking for a bigger and more powerful rig.

This is my school's bass amp. I use it everyday for jazz band. Ive run many basses through this. (Ibanez BTB 575, Ibanez SGR 400 6 string, Fender P/J,squier P/J, Rickenbacker 4003, and Azola electric upright bug bass, and an acoustic upright bass with a fishman pickup). While this amp is very loud, it is lacking in biting tone and is very honky in its midrange(even with severe eq'ing). This is especially bad and noticeable with the azola bug bass. It sounds awful, which isnt something expected to hear from a $3000 electric upright bass. It almost completely diminishes the growl from my rickenbacker. The best thing I can say about this is the effects are quite nice though almost useless with the tone of the amp. Roland should stick to keyboards and V-drums.

A Workhorse Amp

By Macklin Andrick

from Carbondale, IL

I have been using this amp for about a year now and have played over 80 shows with it and had little to no issues. The DI was a little funny when I was running it through some larger systems, but its nothing an extra DI box couldn't fix. I have a ran this through a PA system to play a full 1500 person amphitheater and had amazing sound quality. It is well worth the money to get this amp if you are trying to gig at all. People think your crazy when you bring it up and then when you start playing their jaws drop. Can handle any genre, a little funny when running an upright through it.

The little powerhouse

By Porjy

from Midland MI

The Roland cube 100 has to be one of the best mini bass combos on the market. The combination of five effects that are pedal switchable, and eight amplifier modeling modes to choose from, allow dialing in any sound you can want. Compression and shape switch gives another layer of sound control. The 100 watts this punchy amp puts out is louder than expected but delivers very clear and rich tone with the volume. On the back there is an extention speaker outlet, a "line out" for connecting to other amps,a "DI" line to plug into a house PA system when available, and a "ground lift." A headphone jack on the front rounds out the features. This combo is light weight and makes for easy transport. I have compared to combos with "higher" advertised wattage and the Roland Cube 100 wins in clean loudness and tone quality. It will keep up with our drummer and guitarist just when run 3/4 volume.

Great and Powerful Amp (for it's size)

By ReallyOldDrummer

from Portland, Or

So if you are looking for a bass amp that has incredible range and tone that will fill a 300 person hall with wonderful sound this is the amp for you. Every time I have used this amp it just keeps surprising me. As I said it will fill a 300 person hall with great sound or you can turn it down for house parties like I did this weekend and still get great definition and punctuation.I would recommend this amp to any bass player.

Looks can be decieveing !

By musical merlin

from Lake Havasu City, AZ

Got one of these for Christmas and WOW ! This is the best sounding Bass amp I have EVER owned and I've owned them all ! Great for small coffee house gigs OR outdoor shows, just bring my Kustom twin 15 cabinet and use the ext. speaker out and it powers it up no problem and LOUD too I might add. The unit is kind pricey but you get what you pay for, wish they had used metal corners not plastic but that's a small matter if your carefull.

Very nice but lacking some basic features.

By ngoster bangoster !

from Louisville KY

I own one of these and I also own a Micro Cube Bass RX. I agree to all posters here about how good and loud this amp is. This is almost perfect for me but a couple of basic features are needed here like, a built in tuner, a tilting arm/stand, CD/MP3 input, mute switch, and rhythm machine just like the one found in its lower sibling - the Micro Cube Bass RX. And I also wish that the cabinet is much little bigger than what it is now.

This amp RAWKS

By Samtheman-Hqe83

from Sydney

What's not to like about this amp? The Roland Cube 100 Bass amp RAWKS! My bass sounds great plugged into this thing at any volume level. It keeps the little woman happy, eh! Using the effects and amp moduling I can play a variety of music on it - from White Stripes to U2. I can also play my guitar through this amp. The clean sound is awesome. When I plug in my BOSS BR600 it gives my music a whole new dimension. Need a monitor for singing - yep it can do that too! Best all round amp you can buy, period!Buy this amp you won't be dissapointed!

Awesome Amp for Guitar Too!

By eljefe61

from Houston, TX

I saw this little gem at my local music store and when I noticed all the features (reverb, delay, amp-modeling, compressor, etc.) I thought this might be a decent small guitar amp.I play in a community jazz band and get tired of lugging my big tube amp around for practice. I pulled a hollowbody electric off the wall and plugged into the Roland Cube 100 and then walked out of the store having spent a lot less than I would have guessed.When I got home I changed out the stock speaker for a Celestian Classic 30 and now I'm even more impressed. This could become my main amp based on it's portability, quality of sound, and ease of use.Great job Roland!
