Don't you also have an old orange Roland Cube 60?
yeah Cube 60 but not the older orange one.
Have the next model black one.
It's still one of the best SS amps ever made imo but still not worthy of either of my Gretsch.
If I ever plug one of them into the Roland I feel like apologising to the Gretsch
Haha, I like that. If you come across the old 1980s orange Cube (not a modeler) it is a really good little amp. Half of a JC-120. It won't be necessary to say you're sorry to the amp.
yeah I've played the orange one too - I put it on par with the black Cube 60.
I only ever use these SS amps as a clean pedal base anyway.
The overdrives and distortions on all SS amps are unusable for me.
The Roland JCs, Cubes and new Blues amps are the best SS amps ever made imo.
They have the best cleans imo and are good user friendly pedal platforms.
They better than anything Fender, Vox or Marshall make in the SS line imo.
Hard to argue with any of that. I like to fool with the orange Cube 60 when the tubes are boring me (lol.) Suprisingly, they take pedals very well.
New suggestion: The Vox MV50!
Check out GMD and the Macmull guitar builder Sharon with the MV50 at Guitcon:
(playing demo starts at 3:50)

Great post here! Lots of good information. I would echo what others have said about the Super Champ X2. It is a really nice little amp.
Congrats on your 5120 advid! I can't help you on your small amp as I too am looking for one. Good luck on the Chet tunes..
Roland Jazz Chorus jc 22.
I use a Vox AC 10 when I'm looking for clarity and chime. I plug into my Fender Champ 40 when looking for other tones. Both are great little amps with plenty of power for home use and small venues.
I have an old Roland Micro Cube. Loud enough for band practice, small enough to go everywhere and full of great sounds. I even run it direct into the soundboard for gigs. All in all agreat little amp.
Welcome to the forum, freshmattyp!
Thanks. I joined a long time ago but just bought a new 5420, so here I am.
Ah ha, Dead Roman, glad to see you back.
A Vox AC15 is not that big, and can easily be played both in the bedroom, and at gigs at smaller places I think
So, how about a Roland Cube Thirty guitar amp.
Cheap, plenty of oomph. And some modelling capability.
I've had a Roland Cube Thirty bass amp since 2008. Reliable, and you couldn't kill it with a big stick.
It costed $625 in oz dollars back in '08.
The Katana Mini is another option for US$100 new.
I'm going to also vote for a cube 60. I do all my practice on one. It's power efficient, can be turned down to levels that don't damage your ears if you do hours of practice every day. Great amp for practice. Did I mention they are pretty cheap! What's not to like...
If mine broke I'd buy another one.
