I owned a Cube 60 once, just a smaller wattage version of the Cube 100. The chorus in combination with distortion sounded great. Everything else sounded rather blah.

What is an "original" cube 100.  
The only "desireable" roland is  
a Jazz Chorus. The cube amps are  
just any other solid state amp.  
If you like it.  
Don't pay too much for it.  
It's not a collectable or "original"  
anything. It's just an amp.

I have tried one if the Roland Blues Cube amps. Despite their advertising  
hype, it doesn't sound at all like a tube amp, let alone a GOOD tube amp. In  
fact, to my ears, it didn't even sound as good as some solid state amps. Before  
you spend your hard-earned cash, I think you should look around some more. There  
are much, much better-sounding amps in that price range.
