So, i've some good stuff about them and some bad stuff.

Is it worth the $80?

Seems cheap for an amp and would be fun to get and muck around a bit with, i can afford it, I'm only getting it because i am already happy with what i got and want something to use for silly purposes and when i want to play not very loud (say at night and stuff), it would also be a cool as decorative item

Your thoughts?

I think that roland micro cube is really much better than marshall mini amps, they got more stuff added to the amp, but if you got a good pedal and you want it, go ahead

Added advantage:
They have a headphone socket I think?
They are also very portable if taking anywhere.

Is there any black people on UG?
I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

I think the marhall is smaller than the microcube, but the microcube sounds better and is a bit louder

The Marshall mini amps are nothing more than a novelty.

They sound terrible and will most likely break (mine did).

They are fun, admittedly, but once the novelty wears off you'll be asking why you wasted your money on it.

$80?

I built a runoffgroove Ruby Amp into an old Radio I had (you can also use Radio Alarms) and it sounds much better than those POS Marshalls - plus it cost me absolutely nothing to make.

It's only worth it if you can afford $80 for a novelty item. It was worth it to me, because I got some good laughs out of it. I "used" a micro amp years ago when playing parties by having my real rig behind the curtains in the living room, & placing the micro amp on a stool right in front of the curtains. I ran a dummy cord to the micro amp so it looked like it was hooked up to my pile of pedals (I used a wireless- no one knew where the receiver was!) Sometimes, we even placed a mic in front of the micro amp to make it look really official. The looks on people's faces were funny as hell, since they were really hearing a 1974 100W Marshall Super Lead through a 2X12, but they thought it was the micro amp! It was even funnier after a 12-pack.

I almost vomited, thinking you were saying the mini amp was way better.

It's stereo amp, and I don't think it's tube. However, for a stereo amp, it is very good. Don't plug guitar into it; just use it as hi-fi if it works.

They are funny to mess around with, but in reality it's just a toy so don't expect any good tones from it.

the half stack one has a belt clip and its fun to walk around with the amp strapped on jamming away.

Yeah, i have heard people have got really good tone out of it

I might also use it for funny purposes like riffhog

And it will also fit right in my les paul case, you don't see many full stacks packed into guitar cases do you?
