With over one million Cube amps sold and going strong, Roland continues to push the envelope with innovative amp technology and design. The latest addition to the top-selling Cube amp family is the Cube XL series. Second only in size and power to the flagship Cube 80XL, the Cube 40XL is compact enough to grab and go, yet powerful enough for serious stage and studio work. The Cube 40XL provides 40 watts of power through a 10" high-performance custom speaker. There are discrete, footswitchable channels — JC Clean and Lead — with Solo settings for each. Ten COSM amp models are onboard, including the new Extreme, and eight effects to choose from, including the new Heavy Octave and COSM vintage Spring Reverb, plus an 80-second Phrase Looper.

EFX & Looper

Composite Object Sound Modeling (COSM) is Roland’s innovative and powerful sound-modeling technology. COSM analyzes the many factors that make up the original sound, such as the electrical and physical characteristics of the original, and then produces a digital model that can reproduce the same sound. In designing the Cube 40XL, Roland meticulously analyzed and modeled array of world-class amps and effects to bring you the versatile and authentic tone palette that these amps provide.
