I've used this old microbe since my wife got it for Christmas more years ago than I like to admit.
Always with a strat or a tele. Last week some pals wanted to jam at the drummers place. Always before there were always PA gear and such there and he was playing acoustic drums but he's recently gotten into electronic drums and when I talked to him over the phone he said his wife was a happy camper because of the sound quality and lesser volume.
Called the other guys up and they were hauling a Rumble 40 bass amp and we were to sing thru a pair of 50 watt Kustom monitors with a Boss Katana 100 watter for the other guitarist. (set on 1/2 watt) power.
I looked around and for ease on the old back decided the Microcube was going to have to do the job and if it wasn't enough then the other guys would just have to turn down.
The drummer had gotten an Alto brand powered speaker to play through when he bought his kit.
We had a blast and the volumes needed were so easy to dial in for everyone that I really was happy we went that way. I was really happy to see that we all were happy without the volume wars. And the little cube could pull it off great without straining. It handled the Les Paul like a pro and really filled the room. The lessened drum volume allowed us to sound a lot more balanced. Wouldn't expect that in a crowded room of any size but I was happy it did so well!

Heck yeah. When I get together with friends for impromptu living room jams, it's usually a Microcube jam. These are fantastic amps.

We use electronic drums for rehearsal and gigs. Never have a problem with volume and no problems with hearing either.

Cool, we don’t use a drummer but the electric drums controlling the volume I never thought of. That’s cool. We do about half of our rehearsals acoustic. I’m using a Phill Jones two by four battery powered amp with an acoustic/transducer bass.

I just got my first Micro Cube - the new GX version, whatever that means.

I really, really love it. It sounds fantastic, works great for practice volumes and is just plain fun.

I've never spent a better $150.

I’ve had the Micro Cube Bass RX for so long I can’t remember where or when I got it. I never really liked the sound of it. I did a lot of camping with it and it was better than nothing, or even much of the other offerings.

Recently I tried it out with the acoustic 6 string and I am impressed, much more than I am with the bass.

I've been praising the MC since I purchased one several years ago. I've only practiced with it but that's all I do with my gear anyway; practice.
