I especially like the "Brit Combo" amp model, and the acoustic model. The phaser and reverb also sound really good.

Its really, really user friendly, easy to get good tones. Compared to some of the larger, more powerful, and more expensive modelling amps, its easy to get a good sound with it. As good as it is, I will look at the larger Cubes from Roland if I decide to get a bigger guitar amp. (Probably a part of their marketing plan, but, this little amp gets the job done!!)

The only thing that I would change is putting the power button on top or near the top to make it easier to find.

Keep in mind that by itself, (5 watts, and small speaker) its pretty much just for practice, or busking on the street.

I got it for travelling ( also got a Dean short scale guitar) and practice... just plug in, pick an amp, pick an effect, adjust the drive and volume and there you are!! Its a lot of fun.

However, I bet it would sound good if you use the line out and go into a PA with it, or into a larger, clean sounding amp
Roland Micro Cube a lot of features and effects for the money. I like the tuning note button, and also that you can tune to Ab with it, or Abb too.

Reverb is as good or better than most of the small combos I have tried.

I can get good tones for Beatles tunes, bluesy things, country-rock, etc....
I got mine used, and it seems well made. I try to take care of my stuff, but a lot of people don't.... !

I think amps that get passed around, dropped, sold, pawned, and still work great must be decent quality to make it thru all that!!

It sounds really good.
Its a lot of amp for the money!! You could spend this amount of $ on another small combo amp, and still not get the useful tools like the tuning note, reverb, and the amp models. Speaker is small, but really, its just as good as many of the other little combos out there!

I have a small Vox combo, and a couple of small Fenders, and this little guy can sound similar. The Cube has a lot more built in effects, however, plus some amp models/tones that the Vox and Fender can't pull off by themselves. (Those combos have more power and better/bigger speakers, so they can do more as a "live" guitar amp, mic'd, with a band, than the Cube however)

A lot of 10 and 15 watt amps out there ( for similar prices) really don't sound as good as this amp.

Man this is the best practice amp I have ever owned. I use it to take to school to jam at lunch and mid class as well as to replace my old practice amp. It does all that and a handful. Its a really great amp. I can get great acoustic sounds, bluesy grit and ballsy distortion. It also does a great shredder tone with a touch of chours and reverb. Its amazing what this amp can do for just being 2 watts and a 5 inch speaker.But thats one thing I want to mention that I have had a probelm (note its the only problem I have with it). The speaker seems to fart with ultra loud low frequencys achieved with palm mutes and high volume. This only happened with the batteries in use however. I swapped the batteries thinking that was the problem but it wasnt. It turns out the loud low frequencies is just too much for the batteries but the adapter that comes with it solves the problem. The only time u hear it though is when you hold a palm muted note for a while (ala deathcore breakdowns), so unless you play some slow palm muted breakdowns (which is torture for any small amp honestly but I cant resist)you have nothing to worry about.Its a great amp overall and if it were to break, no doubt I would get another. It just cant be beat for this best sounding, smallest, portable, practice amp.

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

Like I said I have used this amp EVERYDAY FOR TEN YEARS!!! Just get your foot off of the amp and it will probably out last you!
I had five of these before Katrina washed them all away. I bought five more after I opened my music school back up in New Orleans. We use rechargeable batteries for portability. You name the song and I will get the sound out of this amp. If this thing had a switchable amp selector it would be worth more.
Just keep your foot off of the amp and buy your self a foot stool and it will last ten times longer. All of the problems with the amp have come from people using it for a foot rest. It causes the resistor contacts to separate on the inside.
Come on!!! Any sound under the sun for this price? The real secret of this tiny amp is how well the recording out works!

Best practice amp for beginners!

Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

And I've heard professional players seem to like it too. When I seriously started collecting guitars and amps several years ago, I wanted to learn how special effects work before I bought any pedals. The Roland Micro Cube was the perfect solution, and it taught me everything I needed to know. Want to deploy monster metal riffs, power chords and other sonic assault weapons? With this amp you can do it all at low volume, so you don't alert your parents, roommates, neighbors or the police. Especially the police. And it is plenty loud if nobody's home. It emulates a variety of classic amps, so it's suitable for any style of music. I still use it, and it has proven to be sturdy and reliable. Highly recommended!

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    I have a small recording studio with 7 top of the line tube amps. However, each one of them are heavy making them difficult to move around. Because of this, I needed a small amp that I could play through some of my computer programs. This amp did just what I needed it to do, and I've had it over 4 years with no problems. While it is loud for it's size, it would never work for me in a live gig. This is a great practice/beginner amp, and probably could be used for laying tracks. It is well made, has some great effects, and so easy to move around. The name Roland speaks volumes, plus the reviews of others should reasure your decision in purchasing one for yourself.

    Very good practice amp. Well Done, Roland!

    By LordMusikage

    from Phoenixville, PA

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    After owning this amp for 1 and 1/2 years, It has served me well. Overall, for the price and for the modeling and effects, it's durability, and how good they sound... Outstanding.
    Being a solid-state digital amp, it's destined to have a few effects, at least. This amp does have some nice effects. It has 7 amplifier settings: Acoustic, JC Clean, Black Panel, Brit Combo, Classic Stack, Rectifier (spelled "R-Fier") and Mic (for putting a mic directly into guitar input.) Its effects incude Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, Tremolo (All of those on one knob), Delay, and Reverb (Both on another knob). It has a total of 6 knobs. The amplifier selector, gain, volume, tone (adjusts overall clarity.), and the other two knobs control the effects. The Micro Cube also has a digital tuning fork that is touch sensitive, and can tune an A, an Ab, and a G (Abb). Also has auxilary inputs in 1/8 size (to plug in iPods or mp3 players.), and in 1/4 size (to plug in perhaps another guitar or a microphone).
    Well, being that it's made from Roland, it's bound to be good... and it is. From the digital aspect of the cube, the amplifer models sound really good. The acoustic channel does a decent job simulating an acoustic guitar, the JC Clean and Black Panel sound very good as well, the main difference being that JC Clean is very clear and distinct; and the Black Panel (my personal favorite clean) has a much warmer, deeper end to it. The British Combo will give you a nice classic grit, and the Classic Stack (my favorite distortion) will provide a nice crunchy distortion when gain is at 1/2 or less, and it's a smooth fuzz that works excellent for leads when the gain is turned up more. The Recitifier works for metal pretty well. The mids in it however, are scooped a ton (I dislike that, but it still sounds good). I can't really evaluate the mic channel mainly because I don't have a mic to try it out on. Onto the effects, the Chorus is very deep sounding and overall pretty good. I don't really use the flanger or phaser much, but they sound good. The tremolo sounds good too. The delay sounds nice, and the reverb is excellent too. For the physical aspect of the Micro Cube, it's pretty strong and durable. I'm a big dude, and I've sat on it a few times. No problem holding me up. Also, the amp really lets your guitar's tone shine through. Sounds great on all of the guitar I own. There is one thing I would complain about: the input jack nut is made of plastic... I borrowed a cube from my school and It fell on the input jack from maybe 10 inches and the input jack nut BROKE off... into two pieces of platic. ... But other than that, overall very good quality.
    A very flexible, good sounding, and strong little amp for $140. Very good value.

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    I've had this amp for four years now and it saved the day for me being an apartment dweller. Huge tone out of such a small speaker. The only downside is the Rectifier setting is terrible and the speaker woofs out when cranked. Other than that you're not going to find a better amp that won't annoy your housemates.

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    This little amp has GREAT tone. I'm a Marshall guy, and I usually don't do modeling amps, but I needed something that wouldn't wake up the neighbors at two in the morning. Words don't describe the tonal range of this amp. It goes from sparkling clean to downright dirty and everywhere in between. As far as volume, this amp can really crank if you need it to, and it doesn't lose its tone at lower volumes. If you're looking for an amp to play at night or just on your own, look no further.

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    Unless you're planning on playing shows and such, this amp is awesome. There's so much it can do, and it's tone!, IT'S DIGITAL TONE, is amazing. I own a Vox and a Fender Deluxe, and at home, this is my go to amp. You can play whatever you want quietly and it sounds good, but with tubes you need to let them warm up to sound good, and you just can't play tubes quietly unless it's like 1 watt. Even 5 watt tube amps are loud. If you own a 40 watt Fender Deluxe, you know what I mean... it cannot be quiet, ever. Get this, for an amp to write with and jam on, it rocks.

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    I traded a new ZT Lunchbox JR amp for this Roland MiniCube yesterday because the Roland sounds better.
    More depth, and doesn't sound like a transistor radio (unlike the ZT JR).

    It is way louder than 5 watts.

    The warm tones are very good (when tweaked just right using the TONE control).

    It can be used for JAZZ GUITAR applications, both live & for recording. Has great "clean" tone. I prefer the Black Panel setting for a clean, Jazz Wes Montgomery-like tone. It is the right setting for my Traveler Guitar (which only has a bridge humbucker p/u).

    The only drawback is that when the "Acoustic" model is set, there is hiss produced when guitar strings are struck. Kinda annoying, but tolerable, the hiss can be reduced by putting the tone knob at the 9-o'-clock position.

    Also, don't overdrive the bass tone as the speaker will sound floppy!

    In a live setting, be sure to have an SM57 for house amplification!!! An XLR-balanced output would've been nice, but probably impractical, due to the power transformer (wall wart).

    I live full time in my car, so I can power it with cigarette lighter adapter (9-volts).

    Another very nice product from Roland. You can't go wrong!

    GREAT PRACTICE AMP

    By Josh Atkins

    from Cypress

    See all my reviews

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    I picked up one of these about 4 years ago, and let me tell you, this is such an awesome little amplifier!! I teach guitar lessons in-home, so this little guy is perfect for me, (it even fits perfectly in my backpack). It also has the ability to run on 6 AA's, which i dont use, because that eats up alot of batteries, but it mainly uses a 9V DC cable, so if it gets messed up, you can get one at radioshack. But the best part about this amp is the tone! for a 5W amp, this thing sings! all the amp models sound great, as well as the on board effects. it also has a tuning fork switchable between A, Ab, and Abb (G), an Aux out, headphone jack and a handle. I'm tellin you, if you want a little practice amp or just something portable, this is definitely the way to go. And not to mention, the thing is built like a tank, as light as a feather, and loud as an Ex-wife. i will never get rid of this amp, and i highly recommend it to anyone looking for something like this.

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    After watching numerous You-tube videos, I decided to purchase this amp. I was nothing short of surprised by the quality of this little amp. I have owned this thing for 3 years, and have dropped it numerous times and there is not one scratch on it. This thing is LOUD! for it's size and the battery life is excellent. My only con with this product is you can't use multiple effects at once but that's not a big deal. I highly recommend this product.

    I purchased this amplifier a couple years ago as a practice amp. I have a bunch of really good amplifiers that sit and gather dust. I use this one all the time. When I am learning a new piece I run my little CD player into it and plug in the head phones and I am ready to play. Nice and loud if I want it to be and quiet and unassuming if I need to practice without bothering others. I recommend this amplifier highly.

    A Punch In Your Practice

    By Bruce in Hawaii

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

    this amp is one of the best practices amps i used. it has a punch to it that helps the sound ignite (COSM) as if you were using your popular english amp head or that popular american tube amp you may have first bought when you learned to play guitar. the cube is personal and helps you recognize your playing style. it is good to do practice recordings and the reverb is true (BOSS). buyig this is worth your investment and if you are into using a lot of effects like phase,chorus,flanger,and tremolo this thing will make you happy. the delay is good too and you can use this to practice your vocals as well. a mic will do good in this. for the beginner, to the averge, to the good, this practice amp is the one. quality, price, and name is the way this is built. buy it and see why this cube is more colorful then the Rubic cube you played with 30 years ago. And it ain't hard to figure out too.

      Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

      First of all, I absolutely have to say how much I was blown away by this amp. I wanted something that was really small and portable to take around or to play when I didn't feel like hooking up all of my other gear. It's enough to say that I haven't touched my other gear since playing the micro cube!

      I've thoroughly tested all of the amp models (with the exception of the mic) and have found them all to be superb. My favorites are the JC clean, the Classic Stack, and the Rectifier. The JC clean model is excellent for jazz. Just turn on a tinge of chorus and some moderate reverb, and you've got quite a sound! The Classic Stack is great for some classic rock sounds, and is great for some soulful soloing when a little delay is added. I'll admit, the Rectifier needs to be tweaked in order to sound good, but once you get those settings right, it's an absolute monster. If you have full tone going, then the r-fier will, in my opinion, sound a little buzzy and trashy. Just take down the tone to about twelve o'clock, and flip on the treble pickup with the tone knob rolled off a little. That's just my preference.

      This amp has quite a bit of low end to it for having such a small speaker. And don't let the wattage fool you, this thing can get LOUD. But take this one bit of advice first: A lot of people have been complaining about "speaker farting." To combat that, please remember that this amp is not a forty watt Fender or Marshall. The speaker is small and cannot take much volume abuse. One more problem people have been addressing is that the speaker is supposedly cheap and blows out after a few months. That's because they're probably being idiots and cranking the volume knob all the way, which is something you just don't do with solid state amps. Keep the volume below twelve o'clock, and it should be fine.

      The Micro Cube is also very well built. It's compact, and could probably take a heavy drop or two and still be fully functional without a single cosmetic injury. The grill is made out of what I assume to be plastic, or something like that. But it is very sturdy and protects the speaker very well. That's actually a feature that I wish a lot of other amps had! It's also very lightweight, and right now I'm trying to figure out a way to be able to strap it to my belt loop and play because it's perfect for that.

      Oh, and I should mention the effects. I'm not an effects-aholic, but I have tested them, and they do sound good. Trust me, for the price, you're truly getting far more than your money's worth. And what's so bad about that? The Mico Cube does have an aux jack and a headphone/rec out jack located on the back. I assume that I should be able to hook it up to my bigger amps and let it act as a head, but I have yet to try. However, I KNOW I will be pleased with it. I did try playing it through headphones, and I'll be honest, it didn't sound that great. Maybe it was just my headphones. Either way, that minor flaw doesn't hold water in the face of such an all around awesome amplifier! Did I mention it can operate on batteries? You probably already read that in the description, but my goodness, battery operation just makes it ultimately convenient! I would buy another one in a heartbeat if anything ever happened to the one I currently own. If you're trying to decide on a travel amp to buy, or even a first amp if you're a beginner, then I hope my review will be the one to fully persuade you!

      Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

      I was needing a small portable amp to use with my lap steel, and after checking some lap steel forums about the subject, this Roland Micro Cube seemed pretty popular so I sprung for one from MF.
      Good choice - - the price was good for what you get, and better yet it's perfect for the lap steel! It really is capable of giving me that lonesome early country sound not unlike that of Ol' Hank.

      I especially like the Brit Combo and JC Clean settings for the steel, and the NICEST thing about this amp is the addition of high-quality EFX! Love the quality reverb and echo, and the fact that it runs on 6 AA batteries is great (it also comes with an AC adapter)! For the guitar, the JC Clean setting is good, too, and I'm having fun mocking the Johnny Cash sound with my Tele - - in fact you can dial in almost any sound you wish if you experiment with the gain in combination with the many different EFX, from Roy Buchanan to Wes Montgomery jazz - amazing! Lots of other effects, too, and all the controls are nicely laid out on top. Only negative for me is the on-off button, which is oddly placed in the rear and not easily accessed (what were they thinking?). It might be easy to turn on if knocked over, too, but this one thing is certainly not a deal-breaker for me.

      The tone that comes from this little guy is quite impressive, and I find that I'm using it more than my bigger, heavier amp now. Sounds like a bigger amp, too, with power to spare. Unlike most other mini-amps, this one doesn't sound like a transistor radio. While not big enough to fill a hall on it's own, you can mic this bad boy and it can do most anything you'll ever need. It even comes with a tap tuner button, which emits a tone through the speaker momentarily, varible from A to G. This is especially handy for those of us to rely more on our ear instead of depending on digital tuners.

      Do yourself a favor and get one of these, it's worth every penny - - especially on something like a lap steel where you are looking for portability and mind-blowing tone. It's the only way to go.

      I love this thing...and I'm not alone!

      One need only visit the Flute Portal to see just how many Native American Flute players both use and extoll the use of this amp model (Pro, Amateur and Instructors). It's perfect for so many NAF playing situations. It was from hearing about it repeatedly from other Fluties that I finally looked into the possibility of getting my own.

      For the price you can't beat the sound, the volume and the Canyon Echo effect (so greatly desired when a tunnel, park garage, stairwell, tiled bathroom or real canyon walls aren't readily available).

      Many NAF players use it for in-home recording, though there are better alternatives for all-round sound quality. Still has amazing sound, volume and a carry that will boost any small outdoor or larger indoor performance above most ambient noise.

      Can't beat it for home practice, Flute Circles and just generally elevating one's playing confidence. Also quite helpful in detecting those small breathing or fingering mistakes one might otherwise overlook.

      Fits easily in my motorcycle saddlebag and the batteries last an amazingly long time. Can easily play all afternoon if you had a mind to do so.

      Really great value - A BEST BUY.

      Just don't use it as a footstool.

        Cheap and good; lots of options; AC adapter brings a 60 cycle hum, just like the big amps!

          Comments about Roland Micro Cube Combo Amp:

          What an awesome little amp. Don't let it's size fool you. It packs a punch. Very loud and packed with fx and features. Great for electric guitar as you'll need practically no pedals. Great for vocals as well. Its only fault is that if you want a simple natural acoustic sound say from your electric drums, you'll need to connect to the Aux jack in the back but the power and volume will be lacking. Great for Busking, Jamming outside, etc.
