Before we do anything, lets see what they sound like...



Okay, so now you've heard them in action...

BLUES CUBE GUITAR AMP SERIES

First things first, they are not valve amps. Some people will see this as a negative - but if it sounds as good as a valve amp then what is the difference?

But there are many practical positives of digital amps that Roland have tried to incorporate in the Blues Cube guitar amps.

They have combined modern advantages of digital with retro tones made possible by Roland Tube Logic technology that reproduces the classic tweed-era valve amp tones extremely accurately.


WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF GOING DIGITAL?

PORTABILITY


If you ask many guitarists for one fault with valve amps, most of them will tell you it's the weight. The digital era cut out a LOT of the weight and make it much easier on your back. Have you tried carrying a valve combo to a gig? Not cool man...

PLAY AT ANY VOLUME


Valve amps sound fantastic when they are cranked up and the valves start to saturate. But this means you can only get that tone when playing at a certain volume. The Roland Tube Logic technology means you can get that fantastic valve-driven sound whilst playing at bedroom friendly volumes. Rather than having a 1 Watt valve for practice, a 20 Watt for the studio and a 50 Watt for the stage, with the Blues Cubes you have one amp that performs in all three of those situations.


VERSATILITY & BUILT-IN EFFECTS


As well as being versatile in different situations, you can get a great range of sounds out of the Blues Cubes. With two channels, a Presence knob, 3-Band EQ and Boost/Tone switches on each channel, finding the right tone is easy.

It also has built-in Reverb and Tremolo, plus an effects loop for feeding your pedalboard through. Roland also build BOSS guitar pedals, so we would imagine these effects to be of the same high standard.


USB RECORDING


You can record your tones directly into your computer with the USB jack. It really is simple to set up, and cuts down on studio equipment and time, whilst providing more consistent recordings.

CHEAPER MAINTENENCE


No more replacing those valves every 6 months! Once you've got a Blues Cube then that's that. Oh yeah, you get an extended 3 Year Warranty on these amps too. Cheers Roland!

SIMPLISTIC, BACK TO BASICS FEEL


Not only have Roland stuck to a retro tweed-esque design, but it is almost as if they are trying to bridge the gap between old-fashioned valve lovers and modern modelling fans. There are no fiddly menus or presets to worry about - just give the knobs a good ol' fashioned twist and you're doing it.

Could this be the guitar amp that converts guitarists to digital?
