I've spent a lot of time to find out some review on this amp but since it's new model there was almost no review I found, so I decided to give it a try with hopeful mind of it's an upgrade model of Cube series.

There were questions I had and I guess many of us may have similar questions if you're a big fan of Cube amps like me. Here's we go.

I've been playing guitar about 15 years. And had a couple of amps. I wanted to have a small amp for practice and portability reason. I happened to buy a Cube Xl-40.

At the first time, I didn't expect much and I didn't think it will sound better than my tube amp. But I found my self, I'm no more using any other amps and even any pedals. It sounds best when I plug my guitar directly. I so much like the tone not only for the clean but also dirty tone. I simply failed to make better sound using my luxury pedal board. So I've been using only Cube all the times for a year.

But there was a problem. It lacks of master volume. Which is critical to live performers. And there's no way to insert a volume pedal after the preamp. So I bought GA-112 and here's what I found.

On of my biggest question was is it an upgrade version of Cube? Now I believe it's Yes because I can make the Cube tone almost same not only for the tone but also the feeling of the sound. The first part I was doing was I connected my Cube through Tuner-out jack of GA-112 and had both amp sounds. So I was able to make almost same sound that I use with Cube XL both clean and dirty. I found 'Voice' button takes action for this purpose. But GA-112 give much wider range of tone selections.

Another thing I really like is that the foot switch and expression type volume pedal. I bought BOSS FV-500L. I works so nicely. The biggest benefit of using an expression-type volume pedal is that there's no tone loss. Guitar signal doesn't go through the pedal but it's working like controlling the volume knob.

It comes with two set of send/return that can be used for delay and chorus effects, and those can be turned on and off using the foot switch.

This amp has all the feature that I need including the tone. Hope this review helps.

Very overated & disappointed in the sound / tone ranges. This would be a great powerful amp for Hard Rock and Metal players.
The reverb and substain are almost non existing. You would need a full range of pedal effects with this amp. Don't buy this if you play standards, jazz, country, 50's to 70's music.

    Bought on Stupid Deal of the Hour on Thanksgiving Day. By far the best amp I have used and heard for the investment and as usual Musicians Friend came through with flying colors.

      Comments about Roland GA-112 1X12 100W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      This amp is quickly becoming one of the best amps I've owned. It has a nice, warm sound. Maybe not to the extent of a tube amp, but not very far from it either. It's a little on the heavy side when you are lugging it around, but the better amps usually are. It's still very portable. Solid construction and decent features that are quickly and easily adjusted -- particularly with how the memory recalls and settings work (no weird double-secret key sequences to program it). The thing I noticed the first time I turned it on was its "soft start". Unlike the many other amps I've owned that start with a loud "thud" of the speaker from the sudden inrush of current into the circuit, this one starts soft, which has to be good for the life of the speaker and circuit in general.

      hi bought this amp with footswitch -compared it to my roland DAC50XD and my vintage sounded better.For 100 watt its not very loud-reverb is poor-not what i expected its only worth half asking price if even that.You cannot compare this to a value amp for sound.My laney lc 50 blew it away for sound quality.Do not buy new -the new price is now half what it was originally -roland will not make any profit i think on this model-

            This is a very solid amp with a huge variety of sounds from ultra clean to metal. At 100 watts it will perform well in almost any situation. However it is over 54 lbs. so it is not as portable as it would seem. Some great tones from this solid state amp.

              The feel & heft of a real pro piece of equipment. This amp is easy to dial in the sound you want, easy to save, and easy to use. Unlike others I tried, when you start twisting the knobs, you clearly hear the difference with what you are doing, and can truly create a wide range of tone, which is what I wanted. If your'e looking for an amp crammed with effects, this is not it. If you want your own tone and have the effects you need, then this amp will make you happy.

                If you are looking for a great sound and easy to use amplifier then place your order today for the Roland GO 112. Best sounding amp I have ever had. I've been playing professionally for 30 plus years. Absolutely love the amp. Whisper quiet for my studio recording and has all the power you need for live shows. I've used Roland products for years. This is by far the best product of theirs that I have ever used.

                  Comments about Roland GA-112 1X12 100W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

                  Bought it as a restock, but when it arrived, it was still wrapped in factory tape - very cool. Easy, easy to use. The thing I find most striking is how quiet this amp is, even at fairly ridiculous volume levels. I'm able to develop pinch harmonics with this amp that I've not been able to achieve previously. My comment about no headphone out is a minor quibble. I know it's developed specifically for stage/recording use, but sometimes living circumstances require that I not play amplified.

                  I bought the Gold coverage, too. I never had before, but I bought a used item from GC and on a whim, purchased the coverage. Turned out that I got a complete rebuild for $0 additional. My personal policy now is to purchase it for Used/Restock items. YMMV :-)

                  I run it in stereo with my Cyber-Twin v3, using an original US Stratocaster VG. My goodness, what a sound! GAS may have met it's match with this combination to tonal tasties.

                    Clearly a lot of amp for the money (I bought a flawless restock at a third less than the current sale price), but the tones are not that compelling, other than the cleans. I also have a Cube 30X which in my opinion has better distorted tones compared to what I can get out of this one. I guess I should spend some more time with this amp. Can't really complain though given what I paid for it.

                    I hate this thing. First, it's huge. I wanted a small, portable amp. This is not it. The sounds I get out of it are heavily processed and not at all natural. My Les Paul sounds awful through it. Sorry I bought it.
