I've had the Roland Cube 30 for a couple of years now and I really like it. It has a few effects built in if you need to use them and also a cabinet simulator. I've played other amps with simulators before and was less than impressed. But I really think Roland has done a decent job! Some of the Sims are like a Vox ac30 sound, one even sounds a bit like a Blackstar over driven amp. The clean channel is pretty quiet. I will say that the more you crank this little guy up the better it sounds (maybe Im going deaf haha). It also has a head phones line which may keep the cops out of your yard a bit longer.
