Should I go with Roland Cube 100 for Bass?

    Okay, so I'm buying this old G&L Bass from a friend of mine, and this would be my first bass. I've played guitar for 4 years now but I guess it's time for a change, as I've lost almost all of my interest in guitar and I'm driven more and more into playing bass.

    The problem is that I need an amplifier for the bass and I was wondering if The Cube 100 Bass was worth the money or should I go with something else instead in that price range.
    My only demand is that it's got headphone plug in and it'd preferably be in the 400-600€ price range.

    What are your needs? Regular gigging? Acoustic jamming? Death metal? Any preference on tone? Prepared to lift a big heavy amp for a more cones?

    I've used the Roland cube and it's a great little amp for practicing, but probably not going to be able to handle a big heavy handed drummer.

    Basically rather clean bass tone for practice and maybe for a little jamming too.
    Something that has the most bang for the buck, is sturdy and the electronics won't fail me after two weeks.
     
  4. if you are shopping with a $400-600 range you can easily find a decent combo amp . Roland is a great company but not really known for their bass Amps. shop around

    I love my Roland Cube 100. I've had it for 3 years and used it quite a bit on small gigs, with P.A. support, but mostly for practice. Very solid, very dependable.

    I've played more gigs with my Roland Cube 100 in the past year than I have with my MarkBass Little Mark and SWR cab. Small, portable, enough power. I can sound choked when you push, but it's a compressed sound that on it's own I'm not crazy about. But, in a band setting, it works just fine. I bought it to use for practice only and have been very impressed with its ability to be used for small gigs.
