The Cube 15x is a horrible abomination of the Cube series with no amp modeling nor effects.

Microcube or 30x.

Is the microcube that much better? I assumed it was just a cheaper amp with some portability slapped on.

The 15x has no effects nor amp modeling.

The microcube is portable, has effects *and* amp modeling.

I have a Cube 15. Don't buy it.

Good enough advice How does the microcube rate to a processor for sound quality though? I don't really care that they don't make sound, headphones are just as easy.

I'm looking for something cheap to practice with, I don't want or need anything loud, so I was looking at small amps like the Roland Cube 15X. For even cheaper though I could get a multi-effect processor like the digitech rp150 or the behringer xvamp floor unit

Are any of those a good option for a cheap practice tool?



Microcube is a great idea.

By the way, the place where I teach guitar uses Digitech RP pedals and the more I use them, the more I feel that of the tons of different sounds in there, there are only a very, very, few that can be deemed useful.

Do you already have an amp other than a practice one?

The Microcube and 30x are great amps, and you could do fine with either for practicing (Microcube's portability is a definite plus) AND you can still be heard if you decide you want to be heard.

Units like the RP150 are even more flexible in terms of tone and effects, except you'll need to plug it into a computer and record what you're doing, if you want anyone else to hear what you're playing. I suppose you could do with plugging in a couple small speakers into the headphone port, but I doubt that would sound all that great.

Stay away from the Cube15!!! I had one and it SUCKED!!!

If you're going for a practice amp, save and get an Epiphone Valve Junior, and a overdrive/distortion pedal if you need more gain.

As for the MultiEffects, check out the Line6 Toneport - one of the few good things that Line6 make haha

I do have an amp, but it's a 200w bass stack, so not the best for quietly practicing guitar.

I guess that the Roland Cube 30X is not an option too. Go for the Microcube, the portability feature make them "reusable" even if you got later a better amp.

I'll probably go for a Microcube. I plan on getting a low-end tube amp like a Epi valve jr or Fender blues jr eventually, but I've only been playing guitar a few weeks, so I'm still looking for something small and cheap for now.
