The CUB 12R has more roar, substantially bigger bites and a nifty trick up their sleeves! The CUB 12R has increased volume and full rich valve tone. Looking at the pre amp it’s clear it packs more into the amp than its smaller siblings. The output section of the CUB12R 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. Now for the nifty trick – the CUB 12R features two input sockets one labelled 15 watts the other labelled <1 watt. Plug into the 15 watts input and that's what you get 15 watts RMS of cool tube tone, plug into the <1 watt (less than one watt) and you get your great tube tone but now it's a whisper more than a roar. The <1 watt option allows you to drive the power amp section really hard alllowing you to really access the Dark Art Tone of power amp distortion.
