I'm selling my Spider III and getting a new Roland Cube amp. I have been looking at the 30X and the 60, and i'm wondering, is it really worth the extra 100+ dollars for the 60W? It doesn't have the built-in tuner (don't care), or the AUX port for playing along with iPods and such.

Also, how much louder is the 60W than the 30W?

if you want to use it for small gigs then yes otherwise the 30x is loud enough for practise and jams and imo the built in tuner is pretty bad anyways

^ yes, but i recently have a Line 6 Spider III that i'm sick of and i want to trade it for another amp. I've got about 150 bucks right now, so i was thinking about selling my Spider, then either getting the 30 or putting in the extra 100 bucks and getting the 60.

...and also, the marshall will probably be about 4 to 5 months from now.

dont bother with the extra money for the 60. Its the same amp, but louder.

That way you can save some money and get the DSL50

also, i just read this in the Cube 60 reviews on the Musiciansfriend website:

In other words: 60 tube watts RMS into 16 ohms = 30 solid-state watts (peak rating) = 15 watts ( real) into 4 ohm speakers

Realistically, this amp performs like a good 15 watt tube amp. Just so you know. That's OK for most small venues.


does anybody know what this guy's talking about????

He took the long way in saying that its equal in power to a 15 watt tube amp.

The Cube will sound better easier than most cheap tube amps with stock speaker/tubes such as the ValveKing. I'd suggest the 30 watt one since it'll be loud enough for most applications.

Wow... i could've never guessed that!

i was wondering how he's figuring this out, because i have no idea what he was talking about when he was figuring it out.

Bullocks.
I'd prefer a Valveking ANYTIME above the cube. without any doubt.
Also: 30W SS is NOT loud enough for most applications. Really not. Its more than enough to play in your bedroom, but you wont hear anything when you play it with a drum.

Erm... tilt it upwards, you can hear 30 watts ss over drums pretty well.
