  • Summary: Fantastic little amp with a great clear sound. I've even used it successfully for small gigs as well as practising. I use it on the 'session' setting with a little compression (which works very well on lower settings). I don't use the effects.
  • Pros: Great sound
  • Cons: Noisy line out

  • Summary: This reliable, well-built practice amp delivers-decent tone through two speakers, a 10", plus a tweet, and does what it is designed for, and more! Found one used-like new, and demo'd with the help of a long-time bass player while comparing to a Fender Bassman 25.
  • Pros: Decent Tone, Sturdy, Not Heavy, MP3 In, Headphone Out
  • Cons: Chorus

  • Summary: As a practise amp it is not THAT bad... It's small and has a correct sound if you don't push it to much. The aux in is a nice feature to plug in a mp3 player or whatsoever to play on top if it. I personally don't like the CMOSS effects. ------------------------------ Join the music auditorium Here
  • Pros: small, not to heavy, correct sound
  • Cons: effects are worthless

  • Summary: I see a lot of negative reviews above, so i figured I should throw mine on the pile and offer a different take. For what this is, I think it's great. It's exactly what I wanted in a practice amp. PROS: I love the way this thing looks. Classic roland design, and it's built like a little tank.
  • Pros: Size, a slew of features, wide array of tones, easy to use, very good tone for a practice amp, portability, looks, fun to use, durable construction
  • Cons: On the expensive side, so-so fx, "line-out" is really just a headphone jack and it's noisy

  • Summary: A practice amp , not for giging , although ive used it on small trio jazz gigs when i had to take the bus , and with a PA it went ok. Sounds very good at low volumes , but it distorts very easy. If youwant a good soundign pratice amp or reording amp , this is it.
  • Pros: Small , sound extremely good and transparent at low volumes
  • Cons: Its a a pratice amp , it farts like hell when turning up above 50 %

  • Summary: Compact size, witch is about the only good thing. At higer volumes(gain & master less than half) speaker farts and the cabinet and the inner parts treble and shiver to a point that renders it useless for anything els than very silent bedroompractice.
  • Pros: small
  • Cons: bad tone, useless effects, speakers farts bigtime at less than half power, trembeling and shivering noice from the innerpart witch is really a bitch. Only usefull as a silent bedroomamp but for mcuh less buck you can buy equally good or even better stuff.

  • Summary: This review is for the the Bass Cube 30, not the the cube 30 advertised on talkbass (which is the guitar version). I wanted to lowest power consuming combo I could find and this fits my requirements.
  • Pros: Low power consumption
  • Cons: Pricey

  • Summary: Not what I expected or hoped for. I traded it in on a Ampeg Classic 2x10HE Ampeg cab for my head for small gigs. It sounded lousy with all my electrics, but good on its own with my upright.
  • Pros: Well built and very easy to carry around. The amp models (Octaver, Bassman, Trace Elliot, Acoustic, SWR, Ampeg) are excellent.
  • Cons: Small and boxy sounding, but I expected that. There is no line out (except the headphone/recording out that defeats the internal speaker). Quite a bit of hiss from that headphone/recording out - too much to use it as a preamp to a larger amp or PA.
