I just came across the Fender. Im deciding on that or the cube. What will sound better? Im not planning to plug pedals into the cube if i get it but if i get the fender i will. which is better?

I'd go for the XD. I really liked it when I played it.
Why would you plug pedals into the fender, and not the roland?
The fender has effects too...

Fender G DEC or Vox Valvetronix. I don't like either of those particularly. Or [get] a Vibrochamp...

Hmm... since the Fender actually has a clean channel (no modeling), i'd go for that.
Plugging a MM into a modeling amp (even though it's modeling a clean channel), probably won't sound good.

Wrong. Clean apparently is also through the black face clean. So basically one of the models are duplicated onto the clean channel.

The issue with XD apparently is that, if it works, it's awesome, since it does have one single preamp gain stage before PI. Unfortunately it is also from China, so seems like reliability is an issue.
