The CUB12R offers a CUB with a substantially bigger bites and a nifty trick up their sleeves! All will be revealed in a moment.
The CUB12R houses a HH 12 inch driver, giving it increased volume and a full rich valve tone. Looking at the pre amp it's clear that the CUB12R packs more into the amp than it's smaller siblings. From right to left the controls run as follow: -Gain, Treble, Middle, Bass, Volume, Tone and finally Reverb. 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.
The Nifty Trick
Now the nifty trick – the CUB12R features two input sockets one-labeled 15 watts, the other labelled 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.
