Anyone own a Roland Bass Cube 100 yet?

    What do you think of it now that you bought one?

    I checked one out as a possible replacement for my Carvin PB100-10, and I thought it was awesome for the size. It blows away the Carvin but I decided to get a 1x12" cab instead.

    Lots of punch for such a small combo, and I would say the tone is more modern hi-fi than vintage. As I recall, some of the effects are noisy. It has Roland's Feed Forward Processing, which supposedly maximizes volume by carefully tailoring the amp's output to the speaker, but I'm still not sure it would be much more than a stage monitor for anything beyond a mellow gig. (Some reviewers on Harmony-Central say this too.) Still, if you're in the market for a compact combo, it's worth a look.

    I think Roland's cube amps are generally cool, and I just ordered a Cube 60 guitar amp for my Strat.
