Taurus Amps Launches the Qube-350 Acoustic

An amp designed for both acoustic and electric basses that features a subsonic filter.


A microphone or piezo pickup can be use to amplify the instrument. Each source can be connected to independent channel and at the same time both of them can be mixed. Two different instruments can also be connected to the amp's channels at the same time and used simultaneously. Each channel is designed with a separate tone correction and GAIN control, which gives flexibility in setting of expected tone of the instrument. The tone correction is transparent/neutral, without any "underlines" so that exact sound of the instrument can be reproduced.

Olo Walicki & Taurus QUBE 350Acoustic.

A chambered body and enhanced switching make this affordable Revstar light and loaded with tones.

Scads of cool tone combinations. Articulate pickups. Relatively light. Balanced and comfortable. Well built.

Some P-90 players might miss the extra grit the Revstar trades for articulation.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
