"Outstanding Amp"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Great tweed-style sound and feel. The other reviewer asked if theirs is defective. Based on the review, I'd say that it would have to be. This amp has the right amount of low end for it's intended voicing. I've played tube amps for over 20 years, from a vintage silverface DR to a Mesa Blue Angel to a pair of custom built boutique heads and beyond. This amp is one of my favorites. Simple, direct route to great tones and a huge range of volumes, no fussy interface, and easy recording. Well built and looks great as well (I have the blonde). Awesome product. I just love playing through it, and I especially love it with Filter'Trons, P90s, and Teles.
Musical Background:
I play guitar, bass, and piano, and am also a vocalist. I've been playing for over 20 years, mostly focused on recording.
Musical Style:
As range of rock from pop-rock to hard rock and punk, as well as adding tracks for more experimental forms of music.

"Just don't tell anyone it's a solid state...."
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have owned a multitude of amps over the past 25 years - primarily from Fender and Mesa Boogie. This amp is as good as any high end tube amp I've owned. It packs a load of heat at 30 watts that will send anyone who wants save their hearing running for the hills. I've played plenty of outdoor gigs, and the Blues Cube Hot can reach out to large crowds like a high powered 4x10. The attenuator is an awesome feature that tames this beast down to bedroom levels without sacrificing tone or sustain. I'm sold on Rolands. Buy this amp, take it to a jam, and just don't tell anyone it's a solid state. Watch the tube snobs say how great it sounds, and then decide for yourself if you want to make them eat crow. The boost and tone buttons really add a nice enhancement when used with the Boss FS-6 footswitch

"BLUES CUBE REVIEW"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I have to say as LOUD as I can...this,amp is outstanding. I put me wah , fuzz, and a Unit 67 Rangemaster pedal in front of this puppy and it easily rivals me Fender Hot Rod Deville III.....and it weighs nothing to transport . The line out solves all volume issues if there even is one to begin with. This amp is one of the best I have ever played amd I have been playing the blues snd jazz for 50 years. Only complaint is the inability to hitch me 212 cab to it. But Iwill solve that easily by adding an external speaker jack. Not that it is needed but it would be nice to have the option. zZounds is at their very best once again in their availability of top notch gear... Thank you zZounds....you have made this old bluesman a happy player with a releived back...oh the tone !!!!!! OUTSTANDING

"Roland Blues Cube"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
One of the people in a previous review said that his amp had no low end. i had the same problem with a brand new Blues Cube Artist. I sent it back to the manufacturer and they sent me a new one post haste. The new one works perfectly. he should just return his and get a good one. They are good.

"Fantastic Little Amplifier"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
This Roland Blues Cube Hot amp is everything it’s advertised to be. I have always been a Fender tube amp guy. I purchased this amp and a Fender Blues Jr IV within a week of each other to compare the two for home use.Well I hate to say it and to my surprise the Fender Blues Jr IV is being sent back as I type this. The tone of the Blues Jr is very good over all but the issue is when you try to play at lower levels for home use. It just loses a lot of its tone and character at these levels.The Roland Blues Cube Hot on the other hand does not loose any of it’s tone at lower levels. It’s consistent with tone levels set on the .5 or 1/2 watt setting the 5 watt setting the 15 watt or the 30 watt, It just plain rocks the tone across the board and has it in spades. The EQ ability of the Bluest Cube Hot amp is really good and was more precise than the Fender Blues Jr. The Reverb on the Blues Cube Hot is also very good and very usable.In summery,To my ears at the the end of the day my conclusion was after playing both amps back to back for an afternoon of playing I just preferred the Blues Cube Hot to the Blues Jr IV. Also to be honest I can not tell by the tone ore the feel and response of the Roland Blues Cube Hot that it’s not a valve amp. With that said I was a bit skeptical of all that was being said about Rolands Tube Logic amps but not anymore. Roland did a fantastic job and I am sold on this little amp for my needs.Oh Ya...also the Blues Cube Hot it can get very loud as loud or louder than the Blues Jr IV.
Musical Background:
Just Jam at home been playing a few years now. Fender Telecaster and Martin acoustics.

Traditional Country like Cash Haggard and good old Buck and a few others. Love the Bakersfield Sound.

"Leave this Amp Alone..... Run...... fast"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Absolute POS!! No bottom end.... none at all. Sounds like an old transistor radio from the 60's.... Maybe I have a defective one but this is one of the worst amps I have played in 25 years. Tube sound?? Sure... if you never heard a tube amp you might think so. The attenuate feature is nice.... you can sound like crap at a low volume and not disturb anyone. Wow.... no more Roland for me. They required me to give a rating for manufacturer support....but I have never dealt with Roland
