So I've narrowed down my options to these 2 amps, which one do you guys think is best? I'm going to be playing mostly heavy metal and that type of stuff. But I may occasionally play some clean stuff, so here's what I found.

i would say the crate personally...the roland is nice but its almost like a pocket amp, and the features are weak and stale imo. the crate probably sounds nicer.

overall though, i recommend saving up for something better.

well even though i'm a really big crate fan, it looks like the roldnd's got more in terms of distortion, atleast tone-wise. i've also never heard anything bad about the roland cubes
Signatures are overrated.

are you planning on playing live with these? if so good luck. But if you're just looking for playing in your bedroom these are fine, If this is so I would go with crate amp personally, higher end rolands are really good, but crates are always good from the money.

Yeah, ofcourse I'm just getting a practice amp, nothing to play just yet. Just practice.

I have a 40W crate and a 5W crate, and surprisingly, the roland has WAY better sound. Go for the Roland, they are very good sounding amps.

For bedroom practice, i think the Microcube is better than the Cube 15x.
Besides being a guitar player, I'm a big fan of the guitar. I love that damn instrument. Steve Vai
