i went to my local store and i asked for a roland 15x. they said that they were out of stock for that amp so they recommened me the microcube. i bought it and did some research to find out that its only TWO ****ING WATT! do you think this is loud enough to jam with my brothers electronic drum kit?
#2
So, uh, you did the research after you bought it... That's not too bright.
I would've just walked out, done the research, and then made a decision.
That being said, it probably won't be loud enough.

nah....not loud enough
1. You're surfing the internet.
2. You're browsing through the UG forums.
3. You're reading now.
5. You didn't notice that there was no #4.
6. You just checked it.
7. Now you're having a lil smile.

you got seriously owned .

well , you learned a lesson , and try one of the following:

- return it
- sell it
#8
If it's within a few days of sale you may be able to return it for a full refund! Explain that you we're mislead or at least not informed of the amp's power output as you were looking for something around the 15W range when a salesman directed you to this. Perhaps if you are willing to buy the next amp from them as well it'll help with your refund as they will still get your business.
Moving on.....

1 -the Microcube is better than the 15X
2 - watts mean nothing, it's just a number. Plug into the amp and turn it up...ooh, it's quite loud, isn't it? There's going to barely any difference between the Microcube and the 15X volumewise.
3 - your brother has an electronic drum kit. Read that again... electronic drum kit, meaning it makes the sound electronically. Meaning it has a volume control. Meaning it can be turned down.

The Microcube is more than good enough and more than loud enough, shut up whining.

The micro cube is suprisingly loud i reckon, and all the built in effects sound pretty good, all depends on how loud the drum machine is tbh. Just give it a go and find out.

FTR, my buddies Cube 15 doesn't hold well with a drummer. I have to play so soft it negates the point of playing anything but surf. (Even that is lame). He hasn't played much outside of home practice so 99% of the time it's a good amp for him. He should have gotten the Mircro.
#14
My microcube is louder than my friend's 10 watt ibanez. I dont think you'd have a problem, considering its an electric drum set?
Quote by jj1565
what type of music do you play?

if you play mostly bees in a box music then go wt the MG
if you play transformers, more than meets the eye, then Spider.

It depends on the amount of dynamics the drummer uses and the volume he/she prefers. In my experience, it's not like drummers enjoy being turned down in any case. For some reason, it's like they're insulted that they have to play softer/quieter.
Obviously, he should return the amp if he's not satisfied. It seems as though it all depends on his brother. If his brother can take being turned down, then it may work just fine. If not, how the Hell can you win that argument?

lol...

yea stevenseagull and TNfootballfan always have helpful advice. i'm hoping one day i'll be regarded in the same way they are lol.

if nothing else, use the microcube as a preamp into a bigger amp? but yea, the volume of both amps is still only practice levels.

Every post before Seagulls is idiotic

Its pretty loud for its size, definitely one of the best cheap practice amps

Since its an electronic kit, it will of course be able to play along

The combination of words "Seagull's seagull a duck" is possibly the funniest thing I've seen in a while

Anyways, the Microcube is a great amp, as unlike the majority of practise amps, there's actually a use for it when you upgrade.

As for jamming. There's no way with a normal kit, but hell, it's an electronic drum kit so just turn it down!

I say keep the amp unless you plan on gettin something substantially bigger.

first people go around saying MGs and Spiders are good...

then people go around wanting to use tube amps just for cleans and throw cheap distortion pedals in front of them...

THEN people want to jam with their drummer with a 2 watt microcube...

and NOW we have seagulls that are actually ducks in some government conspiracy?

is it just me or has Hell arrived with irony in a handbasket?

aye, those pads do make a bit of noise, now you mention it. I'd have thought the microcube could have got over that (as long as the drummer isn't a retard who equates louder drumming with better drumming), but i could be wrong.
