    One of the Roland Cubes. I don't remember the model number, but I think it's stereo and something like 4x4".

    More important how do they control feedback with the mics pointed right at the PA speakers.

    When volumes are low, feedback is rarely a problem.

    It's a little known secret of the music world.

    Yep. Looks like a Roland Micro Cube. I had one and it was a decent little amp for practice or little coffee shop acoustic type stuff. That room looks a bit large for the micro cube but, if it works it works.
  8. In all fairness, it does clearly say 'Ladies' right above it. :bag:

    But props to him for managing to still totally block the exit and the restroom access with a tiny amp.

    I have one of those Roland MicroCubes. I'd never gig it, but it's a real nice little amp. Good for jamming along with an acoustic guitar or two. I bought it mainly for when I was traveling. I could take a bass to my hotel room if I wanted to. It's also great for sitting next to my desktop computer if I want to learn a song off of YouTube. Surprising power for a "little guy", and pretty impressive tone.

    I'd hope he'd be going through the mains with that, but they look tiny too...

    Do you use the bass-specific model? How does it do in the sub-100hz range?

    I got one of those, it's great for practice or jamming with a guitar or two as said before. What's really cool about this amp is that you can put batteries in it and jam outside, and also have some fun with the built-in effects (reverb, chorus, auto-wah, octaver, etc.).
