Ok in this guide, i'm going to show you some settings to get specific sounds from the Roland Microcube. if you have any post them up. and i'm only starting so in the beginning there will be only a few.

Jimi Hendrix fuzz: Set your style knob to British rock (i think thats what it is) and gain to half way. Put in a little reverb and you got hendrix. if you have a wah pedal you can put it up too.
(Alternative): Set your style knob to Classic Rock and gain 1/2 to 3/4 full. add in some reverb/delay and wah pedal if you have one.

Clean blues: Set your style knob to black panel and gain 3/4 to full. Add in a little chorus, and set the delay knob to half way (its a delay/reverb knob), so basically turn it to 1/4 of the whole knob.

Rhythm guitar: Set your style knob to Classic Rock and 3/4 to full gain. Theres a tone knob, and you just want to turn that 1/2 to full depending on the type of Rhythm guitar your playing



Tell me if you have any others, and sorry that i only have a few now.

wrong.
Roland cube 60!

and for a metal as fuck tone...
use the r-fier amp model with gain at 1/2.
whack up the treble to anywhere from 3/4 to all the way, mid about half, bass just over half
select your bridge pickup and riff the fuck out.

3/4 tone
1/2 delay
R-Fier

incorrect. a TUBE orange amp costs a lot. all orange amps are great.

You own an orange?

yea but only a 30 watt solid state. over the summer ill be saving up for an Orange Rocker 30 which will run me about 1500 canadian. or i can go over to the states and get it for about 1250.

in england, they definately don't.

and i have a cube 60, it's probably the best amp around for the price

how the fuck? orange amps are made in england.

EDIT: i just looked it up and the microcube is indeed more expensive than the orange. you must be talking about their tube amps because those are expensive. 4 times the price, as youd said?...hell no. theyre not even overpriced. the most similar amp to it is the marshall plexi which is about 1000$ more.
