Roland is Quality stuff I would go with something a little bigger though other wise you'll want to upgrade right away.

I absolutely hate the sound of a Roland Cube... I'm also a bassist, and my first guitar amp was a Marshall MG15FX, and it served really well! Cheap, and sounds better than most amps in that price range.

Roland is an extremely reliable brand, and the cubes are great practice amps, but as already said, consider the power at max volume before purchasing. I wish I had considered that when buying a 12 watt

Rolands are pretty good, in general, but specifically the Cube 15, Cube 15X and Cube 15XL are all shit, I had one for years.

Either jump up to the Cube 20 models, which are a huge improvement in more than just volume, or switch brands, comparable amps are the Fender Vibro Champ XD and the Orange Crush 15r (the "not-quite" modellers; amps the have multiple channels and voicings, but don't actually model a specific amp). Or you could go full one modeller with a Peavey Vypyr 15, Fender Mustang 1, Vox Valvetronix 20+, or a Line 6 Spider (which I don't recommend).
Actually, I go by Dave, but there are already too many Daves on this forum.

Not the MG, ive played a few and they are better than a Crate GX 15 but that is not saying much. I think your best options are the Roland or a Peavey Vypyr 15. Both are great amps, the roland sounds slightly better imo but peavey will give you a much wider range of tonal options.

+1 on going up to a higher model cube than the 15... normally you have to go up to the 30/40 watt versions to get all teh amp models.

mgs aren't very good, avoid.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

It depends on what you want. the Cube 20 is sweet but that vyper isn't bad either and will do you well. I would take the 20 though the effects are still a lot better.

I think this is the first thread I've ever read where someone recommended an MG over a Cube (or anything else for that matter).
