    Now, a Twin Reverb Ultra Linear from the 70s. Now we're talking. Even flight cases crumbled and imploded when you buried a Twin UL inside them. The coasters started to sag, and squeak to finally give in... but...it came at 135 watts.

    Probably not.
    Roland has increased the prices on the Blues Cube line as soon as the Nextones were released.
    Go figure.

    I believe the price increase on the BC line is because Roland believes it sits above the Nextone line in terms of quality and has priced accordingly.... Whatever the reason, I sure am glad I bought mine when the price was 800 up here in Canada. Looks like a steal now.

    They're $1099 now !
    $800 was a very good price.
    Here in Ontario they usually retailed for $999

    A couple of years ago, on the L&M website the blond Artist was retailing for the same price as the Stage. The black Artist was more....dont know why, but I bought the blond Artist for the same price as the Stage....

    I bought my BC Hot Boss Drive hardly used for $275 on EBay. How could I lose? Exceeded expectations.

    I guess this amp sounds pretty good in fact i couldnt find the valve amp here (only the first one)



    What i find really hard to beleave is the amp price... USD700 for the artist version... with that money i could cover almost any valve amp option in the market (i have Fender, Blackstar, VOX, Egnater...)

    For something that emulates, to me, is really expensive.

    Think of it as it's own thing....if an amp sounds just as good as all the others, is lighter, and requires little or no maintenance and is reliable...isn't that worth it? People are always paying for something lighter, more streamlined etc...think cars, Tv's....the list goes on.
