Currently I am getting a roland cube 30x, I was wondering if I wanted to jam with my friend who is a drummer once I get better if it would sound ok through a cab? EDIT: The reason why I might want a cab is so I can disconnect it so it would be quiet enough for basement practice...

it doesnt even have a speaker output. line outs dont work for cabs.

you need to start looking at small tube combos, or maybe a large QUALITY solid state amp.

But if you remember from my previous posts im just looking for a basement practice amp 30 SS watts max but in 6 months - 1 year I might jam with friends. so I would need heavy sound then...If I got let's say a Palamino V8 I would need to buy a distortion, chorus, reverb, delay and an EQ pedal, maybe more. That's the reason I asked if I could get a cab later on.

ahh, ok well i thought you were going to start jamming with a drummer now.

anyway. specifically, no. the cube isnt made to line out to a cab, nor would that make it much louder.

but yes, you can hear a 30 cube over a drummer in most cases.

and when you're ready to upgrade then make a new thread

I was kind of thinking that because the cube series amps are advertised as "Alot of punch in a compact package". Can a cube 30x owner shed light on this?

im sorry, what is your specific question? if it's good?

you can hear the cube over a drummer.
you cant plug a cab into it without mods.
it's got punch, and good enough tone for a 30W SS amp. plenty of usable effects.

the only thing ive come across with the cube, lately the X series has been having some hum issues, mostly in part to it's 2 prong outlet plug.

maybe valvetronix 100. They have a power output on the back, so they can be as loud as 5 watts or up to 100. You could just leave it on around 20-30 watts for basement practice and go up higher for playing with friends. It's a pretty good amp, for a hybrid. Don't try pedals though...

I heard hybrids=t3h phail because clipping raped the signal like on a SS (same thing could be said for SS and modeling amps I gues :/)...How good is it for metal? EDIT: I was thinking something no more than $300.

well if you are JUST a metal type of guy then look at randall in the $300 range.
you arent going to be killing the volume so cranking / clipping it wont be an issue.

also, so you know the older cube 60's are really good. and you can usually get one for about $300.
ive also seen B stock cube 60s for $300 online.

unless ur in canada or somewhere they pump up the price.
