Bought this to play my Fender acoustic bass through for practice and small gigs on the back of its almost universally positive reviews.

So... good points? It's very small & easy to carry. It has lots of equalisation & effects settings plus several pre-programmed settings for different sounds & playing styles. It has a pretty good built-in drum machine that definitely aids practice, and a tuner that works well but is a little cumbersome to use. If required, it can work off 6AA batteries - a major plus point that also makes it useful as a small portable PA speaker - and, it's fairly cheap. Bad points? To me the key thing with a bass amp is the ability to get a flat, deep, non-artificial sound that can then be tweaked for brightness, etc. as you see fit. But, as hard as I tried, I failed to find a setting that would produce this: everything I could dial up from the wide range of available options sounded too processed or, in some cases, far too heavily distorted - even the "Super Flat" setting which, presumably, is supposed to be "non-processed" sounded unpleasantly thin & bright with my Fender Jazz bass, even worse with my acoustic bass.

Ah well I thought, maybe it's just not possible to get good bass sounds from such a small unit. Not true... I subsequently used a "PJB Double Four" amp that's even smaller, lacks the multitude of on-board features & effects of the Micro Cube, and is approaching twice the price. But, wow... what a sound: rich, room filling, perfectly delivered bass - so good that it's difficult to believe it comes from something so small.

Bottom line: you get what you pay for and, given what Roland has packed into this little amp, it's arguably very good value. But, if you're thinking you can use it for anything much more than home practice, or if you want a practice amp that comes close to replicating the sound that larger amps produce, think carefully before buying.

I think I have written probably 2, maybe 3 reviews in my entire life. All have been for fantastic products that I want others to know about. When looking for reveiws of the BAss Micro Cube i found there were not many about -and Im always suspicious that the ones that are were written by the company / brand people themselves.

Well, im just an every day bass player who has toured the UK with his band, who has £3k+ of retro effects (Mu-Tron III, Akai Deep Impact, MIDI 8 for example) and use the high end Ashdown gear for giggin and hitorically the low end Ashdown gear for rehearsals , jamming, writing etc . I decided im sick of humping my low end gear around so I sold it and got one of these beauties. It arrived 2 days ago.

I gota say that I am blown away. Im not going to tell you about the functions because you can look them up the vids on youtube and the Roland site. What I will say is that the sound is very very VERY nice indeed. The effects are amazing - meaning I dont have to haul my flight case of effects around for jamming and writing, the COSM settings are superb, the rhythym section is more than just a novelty - especially for non pro players or bedroom part time players - very good quality patterns to play against - WITH TAP TEMPO !! The tuner is rubbish tho - mine doesnt even work. But i dont care. I love this lil baby and its the best bit of GAS'ing I have received in a long time !

One thing to note for honesty purposes - I have not played the amp beyond level 4 yet. At level 4 its pretty loud for a house setting - and still very audible. I cant say what the sound quality is like when you crank it up as I havent doen so yet.

Oh - you can plug an iPod or similar in as well and play along - in Stero sound !! SWEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEET !

I found this little amp to be quite a suprise for me as having been a bass player for many years and being aware of the need to move "air" i.e. having large speaker cabinets and heavy amplifiers, the thought of having a combo amp powered by 6 AA betteries defied belief. Now a believer, I can throw it in a rucksack plug in and walk down the street playing the bass happily competing with normal acoustic street band instruments.

I had intended initially to buy an accoustic bass guitar but having tried a few out it became clear that they just weren't loud enough to play acoustically, infact I had jammed out with other acoustic guitarists at a house party and shredded my fingers to blisters because I was having to dig in so hard to be heard even though no-one was amped up. Therefore, and for half the price of a reasonable acoustic bass guitar, using my jazz bass with this unit solved the issue. Admitedly if you are looking for the "sound" of an acoustic bass guitar then you will have to go get one but if you are not recording, you will need to amplify it to be heard!

This device solved my problem and I love it! In addition the ability to add a rhythm via the limited but competent onboard drum patterns and also adding chorus, delay reverg and autowah, makes for an extremely useful alternative to a powered practice amplifier.

I guess sitting in a rehearsal room competing with a drummer might be a step too far but in reality we have yet to see a drummer function whilst walking at the same time!

Joking aside and I am a drummer myself, the quality is right the price is right and if you need to play your bass where there is no power available and you are not being asked to compete with a noisy drummer then I think this little unit may well be money well spent!
