Because I reckon the Bad Horsie is a better wah, I'd go for the second combination.

Don't get the Cube 20.

What's the purpose of this? Solely for bedroom practice, or planning to use this in a band situation now/in the future?


why not the Cube 20? I was thinking of getting one.

k, but on the official roland website it says :''Powerful COSM® onboard''
i'm speaking of the 20x ofc
#9
I prefer the Morley wah, and i assume the 30x is beter, so i'd go with that option.

Hey, maybe they say it does, but from what I know, it doesn't have the same models as what's on the Microcube/Cube 30/Cube 60.

damn, so the micro cube has COSM and the 20 doesn't ? thats blasphemy
EDIT: I could also get a cube 60....i've been playing for 1 year, mostly metallica.Do i really need a wah or do u guys think a 60 is much better for me now?
#13
I own a cube 30 and i think its a great practice amp. the 60 doesn't do all that more. its louder obviosuly and has footswitchable delay/reverb but doesn;t have the inbuilt tuner or powere squeezer i think it has a cople of extra dials too like presence and a bright switch, but otherwise its pretty much the same, for bedroom practice you dont need 60 watts tho. 30 is plenty loud enough.
#14
If you need/use a wah pedal yea, if you don't then no. Try one out and see if you would want one.
I wondered why the frisbee was getting bigger, then it hit me.

I think the 60 is a better investment in the long run. You'll have the gear needed to play in a band.
Besides, you already have a practice amp now, right? Why upgrade to another practice amp?
Every bedroom guitarist should aspire to play onstage.

i have a practise amp... sp10 squier that is.
and yea id love to be in a band

right i saw that too,strange though they left a couple of great functions out of the cube 60...

And when you get to the price of a new Cube 60, $395, there are a lot of better amps used for the price. What kind of music do you play and would you buy used gear? If so, what part of the world do you live in - near what major city?

^But within that budget, for metal? I dunno..

Got this for $360... Craigslist is like crack I swear.

But forsaken, I do get your point. New it's the best option. (Easy there VK112 owners) Looking around used, you never know what you find. I see RG50tc's for $400 or just under fairly often.

It sounds the same. It's just about how long this invesment will last - I think the Cube 60 is more worthwhile. No point in upgrading to another practice amp, I think.
#27
omg guys, i made a mistake, i typed the cube 30+morley instead of 20 + morley, should i still take the 30+ crybaby?
#28
A crybaby's an OK wah pedal, and you can mod it later if you're not happy with it, so I vote Cube 30 and Crybaby.
