Hi,

Never posted here before. I was wondering if anyone has experience comparing the Blackstar Fly with the Roland Micro Cube. I bought the Fly at my local GC, and a used Roland Micro Cube is available on craigslist near me for about the same price. It's a hike though, so I thought I would ask here. The Micro Cube is normally more than 2x the price.
I will be using it to living room practice mostly on a 1973 Guild S-90. The Blackstar does not have a lot of bottom, but don't know if I should expect better with Roland.

Btw, the Blackstar is pretty cool for its size and price.

Thanks for any help.
