Reading a few negative and some 'ok ok' reviews here, I wondered why would anyone want to use this as a gig amp or even as a standalone practice amp. For such requirements, you can always go for something from Blackstar, Boss Katana, Vox, Fender, etc.
This here is actually a beast which is a boon for that guitarist who uses amp modelers and high end processors (which have amp modelers / preamp models). You see, this amp has a very translucent sound, which they've described correctly. It doesn't have its own tone. So, if you want a faithful reproduction of your amp models from your amp modeler (whether it is a Helix, Zoom, BOSS, Headrush, AxeFX, Kemper or even iRig or desktop amp sims), this will do a plain good job. Having no colour of its own, it will faithfully produce what you want it to.
It works very much like a powered speaker or a power amplifier. And boy, has it got some power. For practice purposes, dialing in master volume between 1 and 2 is more than enough for my amp modeler. If I use iRig for my iPad, I dial between 2 and 3. For jamming, I just increase the volume by 2 or 3 points. It recaptures all the effects and amp models of my processor brilliantly.
What it is not - It is certainly not an amp you'd want to connect your pedalboard with (if it doesn't have any preamps or amp modelers) or use it standalone as a practice amp. No, it is certainly not intended for that. Also, while I mentioned, it is great for bedroom practice as well as jamming, for gigging, you'll certainly need more wattage.
There are some challenges, like the power button is very noisy and there is a loud thump when I switch it on and off (maybe it's a quality control issue). But apart from that it's a crystal clear amplispeaker. Brilliant in everything it does.
Overall, I would recommend it to late beginners / intermediate players who have a good amp modeler with them and want to reproduce a faithful emulation of their favorite amp models.
PRODUCT IS GOOD
The product was okay not that much good that people are giving 5 stars here. Your guitar sound will just be amplified with this, it won't sound soothing. I also felt lack of bass. Though I had got the defective piece, or may be it sounds like that only, I am not sure but it gave a vibrating sound when I was hitting the bass strings.
DRUM SOUNDS with this cube is awesome and it works with 3 input channel at the same time.
Nice amplifier but it doesn't have gain
Perfect for a small jam sessions at room and practice. The quality of the amp and controls are decent enough. Definitely recommended for solo musicians and beginners. Cheers.
I have connected this equipment to my CASIO CTK 4400 and getting sounds of the real drums. I am happy about it. Only this model is having 2 RCA sockets so I can plug in stereo cable with out any problem.
Not that bad
