Ok, so im seriously interested in buying the Roland Cube 60, what do you guys reckon, ive heard some nice things about it.
#2
dont buy it. i have a roland power cube. it has nice built in sounds but it cant do anything with pedals to change the sound. i would suggest buy a peavy or a marshall. i think those handel pedals better.

Okay...half these guys clearly havn't done their homework.
Pretty much, it is the best moddelling amp for the pricerange for high gain metal type stuff.

This.

If you're looking for more of a low- gain classic rock tone though, Vox Valvetronix is the way to go.

yeah, dont listen to those other guys, except yngwi.
i have one and i love it, it sounds amazing.
but if you're into lower gain stuff, the Vox Valvetronix is a better choice.

Think you can also get some pretty good traditional heavy metal/hard rock sounds out of it too......better than a lot of folks would say. I don't like extreme stuff, but most people say 'no' for that.

You can, but it's more typically voiced for lighter gain stuff - I personally think that they are both more or less on par when it comes to cleans (others disagree though).

im just sayin its a solid state modeled amp with no effect loop and most any pedal you plug into it sounds like crap. i tried mxr, tube distortions, boss they all sound so bad. the amp tries to change what u send into the amp so much it comes out all grainy even with the gain low. i wasent saying get a marshal i just dunno what else to suggest him for that price range.

It's good for the money if you like metal. The clean is nice enough but ain't gonna win any prizes and a lot of the amp models on it are poo to my ears. The onboard effects aren't very flexible, more of a gimmick for me. Also I'm pretty sure it's got the beef to be audible over a drummer for practice/gigging, although I've not had the opportunity to try it. I got it because it's the cheapest amount of respectable loud I could find.

why would you want to be sticking pedals in it? it already has a lot of stuff...cause it is a modeling amp, am i wrong?

and he didnt say he wanted to stick a million different kind of pedals in it. you just keep sayin ghtat it wont accept pedals and he wants to know how the amp sounds by itself.

Go for a Vox XL series amp - still cheap, and this one's designed for metal .

However, they have the disadvantage of sounding worse than the regular Valvetronix and the Cube in almost every department.

Honestly, the best 3 options in the price range are:

Valvetronix- For a variety of lower- gain styles, lots of onboard effects.
Cube- For metal, not as many effects as the Valvetronix but better high- gain tone.
Blackheart Little Giant + OD Pedal- For better low to mid- gain tone than the Valvetronix or the Cube, but with no onboard effects.

The idea is to not use pedals with modellers - that's why they have it all built in...
Its agreat amp for the money and styles it does
