The CUB series all feature great straight ahead vintage tone. The design ethos behind the CUB amps is ‘Small is Beautiful!’ There are plenty of situations when small is king and having smaller wattage amplifier allows you to get classic vintage sounds without complicated control layouts or excessive volume.
The CUB12 houses a hh mini logo 12” driver, giving it an increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the pre amp it’s clear that the CUB12 packs more into the amp than it’s smaller siblings. From right to left the controls run as follow: -Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume and finally Tone. The output section of the CUB12 is based around a pair of EL84 tubes giving it a more scooped tone than it’s smaller counterparts. Think smooth rich overdrive with bags of gain.
A NIFTY TRICK
Now the nifty trick – the CUB12 features two input sockets one-labeled 15 watts the other labeled less than one watt. Plug into the 15 watts input and that’s what you get 15 watts of cool tube tone, plug into the “less than one watt” and you get your great tube tone but now it’s a whisper more than a roar. The Less than 1-watt option allows you to drive the power amp section really hard allowing you to really access the Dark art tone of power amp distortion.
The CUB12 is a member of the CUB range which offers everyone the opportunity to experience the sound and feel of a good quality tube amp at what is an amazing price.
