If someone in your family suddenly develops an interest in learning how to play the guitar, giving him or her the 2-watt Micro-CUBE amplifier by Roland will help ensure that your neighbors won’t kill you. That’s not to say you’ll be giving your loved one a gimped amp; the Micro-CUBE doles out full sound and clean tone. It also has a few tricks up its teeny tiny sleeves, such as models – iconic sounds from classic amplifiers that can be digitally applied to the input – and a few effects like reverb, flanger and phaser.
The amp is powered by a 9V DC adapter, but it can also run on 6 AA batteries. Measuring only about 10″ x 7 ” x 9″ and weighing just about 7 lbs., the Micro-CUBE is also the perfect camping buddy, for when your kids discover Dashboard Confessional and are possessed by an urge to go to the woods and cry in front of a bonfire. Here’s a video review of the amp from Jeff Bragg of Cool Tools:
You can order the Roland Micro-CUBE guitar amp at Amazon for $110 (USD).
