The voltage in the filter caps isn't going to tell you how the tubes are biased. They just aren't. You can measure one half of the equation all you want, you can't get an answer without the other...

It's all subjective. It's not a question of fact.

Cube is a fine starter amp in the same vein as the Peavey vypyr or the vox valvetronix. Lots of options, decent sound, good bedroom players.

The amps you mentioned are both cheap amps, so that's what a lot of people start on and they work fine for that. I wouldn't call either of them good amps. The spider has more sounds, the bandit has...

I thought it was a pretty good amp. The presets definitely suck, but as far as a super versatile amp, for the prices they go for used, it's basically unbeatable.

The benefits of stereo are having separation for stereo effects like reverb, delay, chorus etc. None of that matters anyway, the 1960 is a mono amp so you won't be running the cab in stereo anyway....

I had the 25 watter, I would not spend money on one if you already have a decent amp.

Any halfway decent digital metronome will let you subdivide beats. The Korg MA30 is a cheap, standard unit with subdivision.
