I've decided to order a cube 60 for christmas, but heard that they don't sound too great with EMG's. is this true? if so then I'm gonna be very very sad :/

It's not, you're just not gonna use the EMGs to their full capacity. (I.E: Driving a tube amp into overdrive)

It's not that it'll sound bad, it's just that, the purpose of EMGs is to drive a tube amp into my distortion with their built in preamps. With a SS amp, it won't really do anything. I use my EMGs on my Vox quite a bit and they don't sound bad, just not as good as they could.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

well I'm still an amp noob and don't plan on getting a tube amp for a while, plus I don't really need one right now. I'm just gonna use the cube for bedroom practice, jamming with some friends, etc., just an upgrade from my ****ty 15 watt.

alright thanks guys, I should have used logic to realize that EMG's wouldn't sound different with a cube than with any other SS amp... I just read that and got kinda scared because I've been researching forever and finally decided on the cube.

It won't sound bad. But EMG's will sound best through a tube head.
