Roland Micro Cube or the Line 6 Micro Spider?

Cube is cool because of the effects quality... sound and what not. It's 5 watts... and I can get it in white.... yes i said WHITE tolex! whoa! priced around 80 bucks new

... haha...

then we have the Line 6 Micro Spider. its 6 watts, and has more gain capability from what I've heard on the videos. priced around 100 bucks new ( and no WHITE tolex!)

this will be for mobile lessons... practice, etc.

the micro cube has surprisingly good tone quality considering it being a dirt cheap battery powered amp

edit: more gains not going to make a difference really. you're not going to get huge chugging riffs from either of them. neither is 1 more watt of power.

micro cube + rechargable batteries.

yea, sure did, man. It just came back with many threads not pertaining to THESE TWO together. Just a random Cube here, or a Micro Spider there.

The Micro Spider is pretty bad. And it's not me hating on Line 6. I'm pretty okay with my Spider III for practice. lol
(i can't believe i bought a practice halfstack =////)
But the micro cube is more versatile, and sounds a lot better.
