Roland Micro Cube GX Electric Guitar Amplifier - Black - If you're buying a small amp, you know the problem: small needs to be cheap which usually means nasty. You end up getting a small amp with a sound to match - not exactly what you were after, whether you're jamming in your spare room or warming up in the green room.The Roland MICRO CUBE is the world's most popular battery-powered amp, mainly because it's small, loud, and built for life on the road (an important point as portable amps end up in all manner of weird and wonderful places). The latest addition to the MICRO CUBE range is the MICROCUBE GX, and although it has remained small, it's now even louder, has a chromatic tuner and a memory function for saving your favourite settings.And most importantly, because small amps still need to be loud, a high-gain EXTREME mode brings the number of COSM amps onboard to eight, while a HEAVY OCTAVE setting has been added for those thick, ultra-low tones that we all secretly love.Finally, the i-CUBE LINK connector opens many new opportunities for practice and recording, providing a built-in audio interface for working with music apps on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch. You can even connect to the free CUBE Jam app for iOS and learn difficult guitar parts or just record your jamming sessions and email them to the band or the A&R man.

I tend to use rechargeable batteries in mine, which make it a convenient grab and go amp. It follows me around the house when I want to play guitar, it gets used as a laptop speaker and it has been taken camping in order to amplify the music on my phone. It is tough and more than able to take knocks, and I have no concerns about leaving it in the boot of the car if necessary. The i-Link input is a great idea and I often connect my phone and jam over backing tracks. The Cube Jam app is actually very good as it has useful practise features such as pitch and tempo control, giving you a lot of mileage out of a single backing track. I use an iPhone but I see no reason why a user couldn't connect any phone running any app (or playing any mp3) through the i-Link: it isn't a proprietry connection, it's just a standard 1/8" jack, the same as the headphone socket on the back of the amp and on your phone, nothing special.
I also own a couple of low wattage tube amps but I wouldn't be without the Micro Cube, and if anything I would sell one of the other small amps before I let this go. The others might do one or two sounds well but this does a whole host of things well, without pedals, extraneous cables - even without being connected to the wall.
I would class this as a four and a half star product. The tone, although excellent for the price, isn't quite deserving of five stars. A second jack for a mic would make this a five star busking amp, but then Roland does sell more expensive Cubes with that option. For practise it's invaluable. In fact it is probably the only amp a lot of players - myself included - actually need.
UPDATE. I bought a Yamaha THR early in 2015. You might think that means the Micro Cube is now gathering dust, but that isn't the case. I recently sold the THR without regret. Yes, the THR did sound better. But the Micro Cube's batteries last a LOT longer, the Cube is far more rugged, and it's easier to set up a sound and just play, without the temptation to endlessly tweak settings - which eats into practise time.
If none of that bothers you, and you have the money, you might really enjoy the THR. It is very good. But if you perhaps want a simpler, more rugged experience, and/or don't have the money, I don't think you can go wrong with the Micro Cube.
I get to play loud through valve amps, so I get to scratch that tonal itch. But for home practise I still think the Micro Cube - especially at its current price - is a great little amp and unbeatable value.
