Ok, so, I have a Cube 30x and I like it alot but I was just wondering, on the Clean channels, do Cubes "naturally" give out a bell-like , bassy tone or is it my guitar? And if it is indeed the Cube, does anyone know some settings that might take away a little punch and add a little more twanginess? If not, anyone recommend any effects that might? If not....lol, well I guess I'll just have to live it, won't I? Thanks

Hey, is your tone turned up on your guitar? That might be it, but I am interested in buying a Cube 30X, is it loud enough for jamming around with friends with drums and stuff?

Me "Have you ever bled out your arse-hole?"

Her: Facial expression was priceless - "What??! Noo!"

Me: "Well if you want to keep it that way, **** off."

She then turned away and whimpered.

hmm, it mighta been..lemme check

EDIT:
By the way, it could probably keep up with drums, but if you primarily plan on using it for band practice and not for bedroom practice, you should go with the Cube 60. The reason why the 30x is so great for bedroom practice is because it has this function called the "Power Squeezer" which gives you the tone and quality of a cranked amp at low volumes. So, if you don't need this feature, get the 60. Whatever you get, definitely make sure its a Cube. Hope I helped.

Don't buy a cube if you can afford an orange/peavy transtube/marshall avt. OK?
I have a Cube 30 and I love it, but It takes pedals quite badly...

mm, does it really? what pedals do you use? cause I eventually planned on getting some pedals. Oh, and are you sure you are using the pedals correctly? Cause you are only supposed to use pedals while on the Clean channel, not Lead. If you use Lead it will sound awful

BTW, i think Cube is > Marshall's and Peavey's in the same price range

I have the same amp. Exact same. And it kinda does on mine, but I think it's my dumb pickups.

Try ajusting your bass and middle and treble. Or trying using the lead channel but use tweed or black panel. Just experiment.

Yeah that was it for sure.


lol, i'm a bit "green" with guitar, only been playing 2 months

btw, do you have any cool settings you can share with me?

oh, and also, how is that DS-1 working for ya? I was considering it since it's made by Boss/Roland and probably is a good complement to the Cube

Dude, I have a Cube myself, I know how to use pedals. Dont' ask a cube user about using a cube when you have no cube. Cube? I mean, OK?

hums for twang? is it a gretsch?

Maybe try turning the bass down, and the treble all the way up on the neck, or about to 7 on the bridge.

hey dude. just thought i'd harp on your newb-ness to guitar a bit more, but help at the same time. Asking folks for amp settings is kinda futile, unless their rig and guitar is identical to yours.

the best bet, is to put all your tone controls, like bass, mid, treble and gain to about 5, right in the middle, and play the song you want a good tone for. Experiment with each knob one at a time to see how it affects the sound. It shouldn't take long to find what you like. The same trick works for effect pedals and guitars... set everything to the middle, and experiment with each knob.

Does anyone here know if the Cub 15x is O.K. for bedroom practice aswell?

It's Ok, I mean, If I turn my Cube 30x all the way up I get by playing with a drummer but it all depends on how your drummer plays, some play louder than others. I suggest getting something bigger if you want to have a nice jam band.
