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.

When I first got this amp I was amazed. It was so small, but it packed such a hugh punch. Plus the built in effects were awsome. But then one day(about a month after i got it)I was playing and all of a sudden it just stopped making noise. I went over to see what was going and the lights were still on. Then a few seconds later it came bak to life. I figured it was a fluke. But it happened again the next day. Only this time it did't come back to life. I had to turn it on and off to get it to work. This started to happen evry day. I tried everything to fix it. Nothing seemed to help. So finally I decided to send it back to the mail order place where I purchased it. I sent it back in February and I still havn't gotten it back. They said they needed to order parts from a catologue from Roland. Well, roland sent the wrong cataloge. So once thay get the cataloge thay can order the parts, then fix it, then finally send it back. The place where I purchased it from is trying very hard to help. But it sure seems like Roland isn't trying to help at all. In the short time I had this amp it was great. I would have recommended it then. And if they ever fix this problem I will recommened it then too. But for now I would advise you to either stay away or make sure the one your buying works. Hopefully, mine will be back shortly and I can enjoy it without the problems.

I love this amp! Lots and lots of Features! Quality is just unbeleivable and the 12 inch speaker is amazing, with fantastic sound! BUY IT!!!!
I bought this amp a few years ago when I was still pretty new to the gigging scene. It seemed adequate at the time and still is in working order. My main problem I found is with the built in reverb. I don't really like EQ modelers, or reverb pedals. I really found that this amp's reverb has a very "digital" quality, especially after I bought a Vox AC30. Now I'm looking to get a Fender for a signal speaker amp that I can use for gigging. Don't get me wrong, my Roland still functions just about as new, and has never given me any real problems. It's just a matter of taste. It's a durable amp for sure.
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.
I've been playing through my Roland Cube 60 for over a year now, and it is hands down the best amp I've ever owned, and I've owned many.Lightweight, tough as nails, I've dropped it real hard several times with no problems whatsoever. Great for jams, grab n go, no fiddling around, and LOUD as all git out.I only use the Tweed model, the volume halfway up, and it just screams. I also bought a 1 x 12 cabinet because this amp supports it, and it really fills up the room. Most of the time though, I just use it alone, occassionally running the line out to the p.a. for larger venues, with fantastic results.Excellent bass response, always shocked at how much volume comes out of this tiny box. I get lots of 'wows' from the other players.No more stupid tubes to mess with and replace, it always sounds exactly the same no matter what gig I use it on.This is my first Roland amp, and I won't have any other brand, considering getting another one as a back up, or using them both at the same time.My buddy has been playing guitar through a Roland JC Chorus, but he says his Roland Cube 60 is much better sounding. I use mine for Blues Harp, with very, very satisfying results.Roland has figured out a way to get tube tone out of a solid state amp. I wasn't looking for the cheapest amp, just one that was loud with a usable tone, and one that didn't break your back and this amp is it.This Cube 60 is no toy, it will keep up with the Fender and Marshall boys, and works in any situation, blues, acoustic, rock, jazz, or heavy metal.In over a year of playing out, I've never had one problem or issues with this rock solid, solid state little screamer.
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.
I have to say that this is literally the best amp I've ever played through. It's great for practices, gigs, and even big concerts. I was so amazed with the tone and the differences between each and every amp model.I highly recommend buying this amp. Try it out at a music store. And use the BEST! ROLAND
I just picked up the Roland Cube 60. While shopping for an amp, I was looking for something that was durable, very portable and had great tone. I found this amp and knew it was the one I had been looking for. Now, I'm not really an effects guy or anything like that so I don't use them. And this amp has some cool effects, but they're not that tweakable and I have a straight forward meat and potatoes approach to my rig anyway. The Cube 60 has got some great models, though. I really enjoy the Tweed model and it definitely kicks with my Ibanez Tube Screamer. The fact that this amp has an adjustable gain is also one reason that I picked it up. I like crystal clean, but I really like dirty clean and this amp can pull it off nicely! The Black Panel is also amazing. Great surf tones, as has been stated before. The acoustic model is a cool idea, but I'll probably never use it. I'm not too keen on the Brit Combo model yet. I haven't had a chance to really mess around with it yet, but I'll get there.I will probably never use any of the other models unless I use them for recording. They've got great tone, but for live gigs I'll be plugging in my Tube Screamer for overdrive. I actually purchased a 212 cabinet as an extension speaker (knowing that I'd pick this amp up) before I purchased the Roland Cube 60. I had played around with the amp in the music store a couple of times, but wasn't sure if it'd be loud enough for most gigs around town. Honestly, I don't think I need the 212 cabinet for most gigs. This amp is amazingly loud! The Roland Cube 60 is a great amp, its solidly built, very portable, LOUD and has some great tones and features. Check it out if you haven't already!
Ok, so now I'm going to sell my Mesa Boogie Roadster Recto, in light of the Cube's phenomenal Recto sim. I still can't believe I'm saying that but I A/B'ed the two amps until the cows came home, and the only difference I can pick out other than the not-so-obvious tube crackle, is the cabinet/speaker difference- THAT'S IT!!!! GO ROLAND!!!!!!!!!Phil
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.
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.
