I am wanting a new amp. It's down to a choice between the EHX Dirt Road Special reissue and the Roland Blues Cube Hot. Here are my parameters: SOLID STATE to endure the rigors of being schlepped around to jams and rehearsals and worship services. I have a nice Blues Jr. with cowboy tolex and a Cannabis Rex that does the tube thing, but I need something that won't break and delivers more power. LIGHT WEIGHT so my 63-year-old bad back can hump it. Blues Cube weighs 27.8 and Dirt Road 29, so it's a wash here. LINE OUT so I can go direct to a PA and avoid being at the mercy of the sound guy's skill in setting up a mic. Blues Cube has one, Dirt Road doesn't. POWER enough to cut through if I have a break or solo. Blues Cube is rated @ 30 W, Dirt Road @ 40, so Dirt Road has an edge here. SIMPLICITY Dirt Road is single channel with choice of 4 reverbs you can select via included footswitch. Blues Cube ad copy says it "offers a choice of two channels," but all I see is a single input jack, so if anyone has experience with this, please enlighten me here. LOW AND HIGH POWER Blues Cube has a power selector switch (built-in attenuator?) that goes from half a Watt to "Max" of 30 W. Dirt Road has a single "volume" knob. CUSTOMER SERVICE no clue here, although I've heard EHX is great. Since both are SS amps, chances are if they work for 30 days, they should outlive me. PRICE there's around $100 difference here, with Dirt Road being less expensive. So that's not really a dealbreaker - we pay that much for a pedal, right? ... and last but not least ... SOUND it would be great to be able to do a side-by-side, but our local GC doesn't have either of these in and so I'll have to rely on you guys to tell me how satisfied you are with both or either. Really looking forward to your words of wisdom here fellas. Thanks!
