As my Roland amps age, they are sounding better and better.

I run a 1/4 inch guitar cable from the Line Out to the p.a. board.
Small, lightweight amp ... big, clear sound.

There are only two options as I see it.
Either I'm right, or there is a sinister conspiracy to conceal the fact that I'm right.

Lee, I too like the Cube 80 though I usually run my Peavey 112 for a steel gig. I find I have to roll off highs on The Cube when I run steel through it.

Sometimes I run 2 amps--just for the spread not the volume. I'll run a cord out of the 2nd Peavey input to the Cube.

The Cube has a smaller footprint, a bit lighter . .. so tonight for my [jazz] guitar gig I'll take the Cube.

I have the gx80,which I use for double duty guitar and steel. I really like my Nashville 112 much better, but the Roland does have a good tone. It's also very easy to haul to rehearsals.

FWIW, when I use (my) two Cube 60 amps in mono, similarly for 'spread', I take a line out of the "Tuner" jack on the back of amp#1 and run it to the input of amp#2.

I use a buffer in the circuit to assist with tendency of the increased capacitance of the 'longer' cable run to amp#2 becoming a low-pass filter.

When I'm using them for synth-guitar stuff, I run stereo lines out from the processor and treat the amp#1 as "left' & amp#2 as "right"...

YMMV, but it works for me... Wink

If my wife is reading this, I don't have much stuff....really!
