    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.
    Here's mine :)

    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.
