My spider line 6 15W has started going buggy; the gain stopped working, so now they all sound like the "Insane" distortion mode... And I really don't want to have to mess with it, would rather buy another one. Anyways, I am trying to decide between...

and
http://www.guitarcenter.com/Roland-Micro-Cube-Combo-Amp-481169-i1175936.gc
Advantages/disadvantages of both?

Edit: Don't know if this matters, but I play Classic Rock, Metal and Blues Rock most of the time.

The micro cube is awesome it sounds great and is loud as **** for it's size, but I hear the vox da5 is just as good in that area plus has more features...

The micro cube is awesome and cheap. Id recommend one to anyone wanting a practice amp for home use

Definitely. Definitely. Definitely.

My friend has a microcube, and I have a Cube 30X. They're both great, and provide awesome sound for their price.

I think you'll feel like you made a good purchase with either of the two. Personally id choose the vox, mainly just because I've played a lot of vox's, and not so many cubes.

But both are some of the best SS practice amps that you can get in that price range

What's the distorted tone on the Cubes like? I need a new amp and I'm looking for a good tone for Arch Enemy and Nevermore style music and the Cubes fit exactly what I need in terms of volume and price.

Do you know how good the effects are?


Roland effects are high quality, the only problem is you can't tweet the speed of the flange and chorus and that kinda ****, other than that they are great...but you know you should try both amps out to see which one you like more...

I highly suggest the Microcube. It's a great little practice amp.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.
