    Product Description

    The reinvented Blues Cube series launches the classic 1x12 combo amp into a new era, combining genuine tube sound and response with modern reliability and easy portability. Going far beyond modeling, Roland’s Tube Logic design philosophy starts with carefully reproducing the inner workings of the revered tweed-era tube amp in every way, from guitar input to speaker output.

    Versatile clean and crunch channels can be used independently or combined for a complex range of tones, while variable output power modes let you dial in burning, full-throttle sound at any volume. Road-tested and fine-tuned with feedback from top players, the gig-ready Blues Cube delivers the sweet, magical tone and satisfying feel that makes a great guitar amp a highly expressive musical instrument.

    Musical, Highly Responsive Amp Tones with Tube Logic
    Warm, bouncy, responsive, dynamic, elastic…these are all terms that guitarists use to describe the satisfying experience of playing their favorite tube amps. Dramatically evolved from the first-generation sound of the original Blues Cube amps from the ’90s, today’s Tube Logic accurately provides the complex, highly interactive behavior of classic tube designs in meticulous detail, providing the magical ‘it’ factor that takes a guitar amp from a simple sound system to a living, breathing musical instrument.

    Great feel, distortion control with touch and volume, bloom, sparkle, power supply ‘sag,’ and more—everything that players love about a finely tuned vintage tube amp is present in abundance with the Blues Cube.

    Performance-Ready Amp for Pro Players
    Ready for live playing, the Blues Cube Artist is equipped with 80-watts of power, plus a custom 12-inch speaker that’s been specially designed for maximum tonal response with Tube Logic. The open-back cabinet features poplar plywood construction, which offers acoustically vibrant tone for solo or group performances.

    Clean, Crunch, and Dual Tone
    The Blues Cube Artist has two independent channels—one voiced for cleaner tones, and the other for crunch. Each channel has its own Boost and Tone switches to shape the character. The Clean channel’s single volume control dials in natural tube fullness and bite as the volume is cranked, while the Crunch channel’s variable gain control provides a range of grit flavors from mild to aggressive.

    With the press of a switch, the unique Dual Tone mode lets you blend both channels together for an endless array of rich tones. And just like a vintage tube amp, the Blues Cube loves stompboxes, allowing you to further shape your personal sound by hitting the amp’s front end with your favorite gain pedals.

    Wide-Open Sound at Any Volume
    Every tube-amp player knows that you really need to turn up the volume and push the output tubes to get the amp to sing at its best. The downside is that the sound simply becomes too loud for playing anywhere but the biggest stages—though that’s certainly never stopped guitarists from trying!

    With Tube Logic, the Blues Cube authentically delivers the complex distortion characteristics of output tubes and their interaction with the output transformer, with the sound getting richer and the feel becoming more dynamically responsive as the overall volume is increased. But with the Blues Cube’s variable Power Control, you’re able to enjoy this musical, cranked-up tone while matching the volume to any situation, from recording to rehearsals to nightclub gigs and beyond.

    Maintenance-Free and Easy on Your Back
    With its modern approach, the Blues Cube eliminates two of the big drawbacks found in all tube amps powerful enough for stage playing—they’re extremely heavy, prone to vibration damage, and they require frequent tube replacement and other costly maintenance to keep them going strong. In contrast, the Blues Cube is basically maintenance-free, and has been carefully designed to reduce weight in every area that doesn’t affect the tone. With the Blues Cube, you’re able to enjoy great tube sound at every gig, but with much easier load-in and no actual tubes to worry about!

    Effects, Foot Control, and Direct Recording Via USB
    The Blues Cube Artist features onboard reverb and tremolo, plus an effects loop for patching in any external effect that you like. The rear panel has jacks for connecting an optional footswitch such as the GA-FC Foot Controller, which provides remote switching for channel selection, Dual Tone mode, and on/off for the built-in effects and effects loop. And with the USB jack, it’s simple to capture the Blues Cube Artist’s rich tones directly into your favorite computer recording applications.

    Good quality amp
    Product Rating
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I like Roland products and have had a bunch of their gear over the course of 30+ years I had one of the original Blues Cube amps 20 or so years ago. This version has much more to offer. I have the artist model 80w. Having much more to offer doesn't make it a great amp. It doesn't get clean enough and it doesn't get dirty enough. I don't want metal distortion, but I want enough to get a smooth lead tone. I find myself having to really pick harder than I normally would to get my point across. This is just plugging straight in. No fx. The .5w setting is awesome. You can max everything out and the master volume control really kills. 80w is overkill for a 1x12" amplifier. You'll never use it. It's so loud it hurts. An external speaker jack would be great---doesn't have one. For the price, it should come with a cover and the big multi-footswitch that you have to buy separately. Quality-good, just a no-frills 2 channel amp. Priced too high IMO. I might send it back.

    Really Great Amp
    What is your opinion of this product?
    I had an ocassion to finally play this amp,and needless to say i was quite impressed.This amp really sound incredible. Now ,let's say one thing,that if you're a Fender or Marshall person this may not be the amp for you because your allegiance to these companies. I was looking for an amp that could capture the Fender clean sound without carrying around a Twin. Well this amp did it and some more. With a really good clean sound and a not to bad over driven sound,this amp fits the bill quite well. Sometimes you just don't want to carry those heavy amps around anymore. I can say this amp has a good full sound considering I never played on full blast.
