Well this is a sort of combo question. first off...i bought a behringer starter pack because i inherited a guitar and i wasnt allowed to play it until i had learnt the basics of guitar..well anyways the amp i got with the pack is called a GM-108 by behringer obviously, now i have had no problems with it at all it has been reliable and sounds relatively good compared to what i heard about behringer equipment. anyways first question is is a roland micro cube heaps better than this amp or would the difference be minimal. and second i have been looking at getting the roland micro cube what are your thoughts and do you recommend another amp instead of the microcube for around the same price.

i realize that was long enough to read so thanks for reading and any help would be great.

Cheers,
Chris

This should be in the GG&A forum, but to answer you question, yes. A microcube will sound heaps better than a behringer. Not sure about other amps in that price range tho.

The Behringer does sound like ****!

u can't notice it cuz u've probably never played through other amps (i own one but stopped using it over a year ago).

Both of the amps u mentioned are ok, but take into account that they're good in their respective areas. Go for the micro cube for a metal sound, otherwise get the other one for a lighter sound.

just a friendly reminder:

both the amp you have and the roland are solely practice amps, good for nothing but practicing by yourself. consider a low wattage tube amp which you can perhaps mod and eventually use in the studio someday.

might i suggest the epiphone valve jr.?

just my bit of advice.

nah i dont think u should get the microcube. it will sound better, but u already have an amp, and as a beginner u dont need an awesome mind-blowing sound, i suggest u stick with guitar, make sure u rly like it, and upgrade then, to a bigger amp for band practice and gigging (mic'd i guess). and chances are, u can't rly tell how good or bad ur beringer sound is, i know for sure i couldnt when i started playing.

P.S. low wattage tube = practice amp with good tone.

^ Yep, low watt tube amp gets my vote. And don't forget to check out pawn shops, I missed a Fender Princeton a while back, couldn't afford it, $225 US. Stay way from anything with under an 8" speaker.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...
