I've been getting pretty bored lately in my down time between classes at college and i'm wondering if the Roland Micro-Cube is the way to go for some quiet guitar playing. I see its only a couple watts and thats good because my room is right next to the RA and it does have a head phone jack so thats a big plus. I've looked through the forums and the effects seem like there decent enough so this looks like a pretty good option for me since i pretty much play all kinds of rock. Are there any other amps in this price range ($125) that i should also be considering? thanks.

hey man if your lookin for a small, cheap ($99), pretty loud 15 watt amp, go with the new Line 6 Spider III. I actually live in a dorm too and I went with the Line 6 guitar port to hook through my laptop since I have some decent speakers but this little thing is great. Has alot of tone and pretty much everything you need.

If you want to check it out. Go here.

Word up. For rock I think I'd go with the Vox, the Microcube excels in high-gain territory though.

^ +1 for the DA5. Compare it side by side with the Cube and see what suits you better.

Sorry to bring this thread back from the archives but I am considering getting a Micro-Cube and haven't heard of the DA5. Is the DA5 a Vox? Thanks.

Yup. DA5 is the Vox.
A recent study shows that 8% of teenagers listen to nothing but music with guitars in it. Put this in your sig if you're one of the 92% who isn't a closed-minded moron.

Pignose!!!

hello fellow member of the pignose club.

Seriously. pignose amps are great. the 3 watt version is loud enough but not too loud. with a mic you can even take it to a stadium and rock with it, and it can be battery powered and hung on a strap to run around with. \m/

da5 is a good option. also, just for dorm room practice, i liked the line 6 spider ii. the spider iii is a little hokey for me, but the ii was pretty good--especially since it gave you the option of 36 different footswitchable presets (with the floorboard).

cubes are absurd amounts of fun for how small they are and what they cost. even a mic input setting if you want to scare the drunks sh*ts down the hall. and the vox da5 can get surprisingly loud for what it is as well as a bunch of little FX to keep you entertained

I just noticed that the Cube 15X has a lower price than the Micro-Cube. Does the Micr-Cube have more options? I know that the 15X has more power and a bigger speaker which I thought would be more money.
#17
from what I remember, the 15 x has a slightly bigger speaker, more power (15 watts) 3 band EQ, but less FX than the micro cube. micro cube has a bunch of FX coupled with total portability (can run on batteries!!!!), however, only a 'tone' control

Kustom KGA10FX. It is a smaller 10watt practice amp, but it is really good. It should only cost about $120 I think.
