1 GreTschocaster 3 months ago When I walk by my guitar room I frequently get the urge to pick up a guitar and play, sometimes just for 5 or 10 minutes. Rightly or not I don't like to turn on a tube amp for these short musical interludes as I feel it may cause damage. Maybe someone can tell me if this is correct. Regardless, I decided to look for a low watt solid state amp. Of course it would have to sound good and hopefully tubelike. My inquiries lead me to the Roland Blues Cube Hot. The specs looked good, .5 to 30 watts, 12 inch speaker, boost switch, tone boost, reverb. I watched some YouTube videos, all were very positive. One was a comparison to a Fender Blues Jr., the Roland had a favorable result. I really like this amp. At the 30 watt setting this thing is LOUD and could be used in a small venue. Roland has made huge strides with their Tube Logic technology. They come with either a blonde or black tolex cabinet. Anyone else here have experience with the Blues Cube Hot.
