Recently moved into an apartment where I'm kind of unable to crank my Ampeg J20 the way I like to, so I went shopping for a lower powered amp that I could also use headphones with.
First bought a Fender Mustang II. I enjoyed the clean Fender tones (having a princeton, deluxe reverb and a twin all in one amp is pretty badass), but HATED the controls and the way the preset system worked. Decent amp but not for me.
Returned the Fender and grabbed a used Roland Cube 30x for $99. Love it. The JC clean channel is really all I need... sounds excellent with a surprising amount of punch from the 10 inch speaker. Really a full sound that takes pedals well.
What's cool is, the Fender Black Pannel model and the Tweed model are also quite usable... I have them set pretty clean and then just use my Rat for dirt, though they also sound pretty cool with the amp gain up. The Vox model and the 5150 models are fun... the rest of the amp is really not for me. The effects kinda blow... the reverb is particularlly disappointing.
Basically, the Cube 30x is a nice compact, great sounding clean amp with a few cool voices that takes pedals well. Love the 10 inch speaker vs 8 inchers in other similar amps and the controls are nice and simple with no preset bull****************.
