Okay, so I'm struggling to get a tone I like out of the amp for like hardcore/emocore type sound. It doesn't have to be perfect as I realize its just a practice amp, but its all I have at school with me. Think Thrice - Deadbolt/Alexisonfire - Mailbox Arson/A Static Lullaby - Withered type of sound. If anyone has a Roland Cube amp and has some settings they've found that sound good for this, I'd love to hear them. I don't know if its just me, but the amp has a metal/metal stack channel but its way to thin sounding, but maybe with some tweaking it could sound better. The distortion channel sounds great, but isn't quite high gain enough I don't think. I'm playing a Gibson SG too and have no problem with getting that sound through a bigger amp, if that helps any.
