the perfect busking amp?
Mark4954 13.01.2015
Still testing this amp but first impressions are it is almost exactly what my daughter needs for busking. There are a number of YouTube demos and reviews, make sure you watch those too. Impressive that so much can be got from just 8 AA batteries - quality appear solid and most of the modelled amps are useful - though 'crunch' seems a little useless for my daughters uses - also she would prefer a system that allows boosted channels of any of the voices to be saved, and to be able to access these via the footswitch - my understanding is that it's only possible to turn reverb and chorus on and off with the basic footswitch that is compatible with the amp - i.e. there's no way of creating a lead boost of any of the modelled amps for solo use - for this it looks like you need to use a separate pedal board with a boost pedal and play your board's effects through the amp's clean channel. The CUBE iPad app is good, but a few more features, like the ability to control channel volumes, and guitar volumes, instead of just the volume of the backing track when playing live, would have been good - as would have been a more ecconomical carrying case!

UPDATE - after 8 months the amp has developed a fault on the main power switch - seems like a loose connection / solder, power cuts intermittently and without warning, also power switch often doesn't turn on power unless the whole unit is tilted forward. Contact Thomann and awaiting return details from Customer Services Dept.

For street use this is is a good amplifier, it's loud and you will be heard above the bus noise directly in front of you. The effects are good and the power switching is a great feature.Long time battery use is obtained this way. You can add your backing tracks through the separate input using the supplied cable if you like. It's not for me but good to see that it's there. Lots of variety with inputs and outputs. I have used acoustic and an electric guitar(squire telecaster) with this
amp. The sound quality on the other hand is a little disappointing (especially regarding vocals) for what you would expect from wonderful Roland family. Still though I'm glad I have it and I have even played small gigs with it and got paid.A little bit expensive for what you get.

Amazing busking amp
Anonymous 01.10.2016
I use 2 of them in stereo link to go busking. We run a guitar and a double bass through them, and it's just amazing the sound you get. They are solid as a rock and designed to resist on the street daily. Totally recomend them.
