Grab a coin.

Heads: THR10
Tails: Cube

Toss it.

The correct answer will be face up.

THR10 looks cooler in the candle light.

Just as the last thread I posted in, my practice amp is a $150 Roland Mini-Cube. It is the best portable amp that I've ever used.

I'm leaning towards the Cube. Which model Cube do people recommend?

I have both of these, I would recommend either.

What are your necessities? The THR10 is amazing but only goes so loud.

The DV Mark Little Jazz is tiny but can pull off bar gigs and has one of the most beautiful clean sounds for its tiny size.

It fits in a 10" Cuica drum case.

+1 on the THR.

Flipped one a while back and I was definitely considering to keep it. It was great to play on and really easy to transport. Especially the higher gain sounds were impressive. It can also go pretty loud despite the small size.

Thumbs up Portable Battery Powered P.A./Personal Monitor/Acoustic Guitar Amp

Mackie FreePlay 10 reasons I like mine :
  1. 150 RMS
  2. THD 0.05
  3. XLR/TRS X 2 ins
  4. TRS X 1 out summed to mono
  5. Bluetooth in or Aux stereo
  6. 3 Channel FX engine
  7. Smartphone control
  8. Lithium ion battery = 10 hours optional
  9. Speaker pole mount stand/45 degree stand = optional
  10. Personal monitor

I plug in directly :
  • Acoustic electric guitars
  • Roland GR33 synth guitar module
  • T.C.Helicon VoiceLive 3 X with vocal mic & guitars , harp mic etcetera
As an acoustic guitar amp it's right up there with the best for the money it costs .The bi'amp'd unit splits 75 watts
RMS to the 8" driver summed to mono - the two super tweeters get 35 watts RMS each in stereo equaling the
150 watts RMS of clean FRFR sound .

One of these units does a great job in coffee house gigs . I'm thinking on getting a second one because I like it so
much for slightly bigger venues .
