    Welcome Cube owners!

    From the Micro Cube To the Cube 80 XL, the old Blues Cube to future Cubes....

    This is the place to discuss Roland Cubes!

    Your favorite settings, where you've played them, what you have recorded with them... anything!



    I recently bought a Cube 40XL, but owned a Cube 30 years ago. I bought it not just because of the good tones and sounds I can get out it, but also for it's high standard of reliability and durability.

    Join in! :D

    I have a Cube 80X. I find it to be a versatile amp that is easy to transport and to get a wide variety of tones. I use the more sedate amp models like the DLX Combo, Black Panel and Tweed on low gain settings. The digital effects are pretty good for built in ones.

    I like the dynamics of this amp where it is sensitive to one's attack, similar to a valve amp. It suits solid body, hollow and semi hollow and acoustic guitars. The line out for recording works well into my Novation Nio 2/4 interface.

    When I bought this amp I also had it in mind to get a Laney Cub 15R as a smaller dimensioned, light valve amp that would be easier to carry. I'm not so sure that I need one at the moment as the Cube does such a good job.

    My Micro Cube is an amazing little amp. Great for small settings. Amazing how loud it can be. Battery life is really long for AAs. I use rechargables. Good busking amp.

    I'm in...Roland Bass Cube CB-30, it's a great 'bass' practice amp that will play loud enough to shake the windows, and annoy the next door neighbors, headphone jack-included!

    I grabbed a Micro Cube, for dragging all over the house and out on the porch. Amazingly big and rich sound for a tiny amp.

    I am currently using a Cube 60 as my church-gig amp. It is very versatile and easy to move - something that becomes increasingly important as I age!

    I'm in! Just picked up a Cube 80X a short while ago and so far have been very pleased with it. Nice variety of tones and effects and of course, that great Roland clean sound.
    It's a keeper.

    I bought myself a Cube Street for Christmas. I love that little thing. I call it my JC-5 because of the stereo chorus. I use it as a mini PA/acoustic amp at church and I drag it all over the house for practice. The Cube Street is probably my favorite advancement in guitar technology since the Boss DD2.

    I have a BC-30. I like it very much. I may still be selling it soon however. I really want another Deluxe or Vibrolux. So therefore, pretty much every amp I own except my Blues Jr. will have to go.

    At present I have a modern Cube 60 (my main gigging amp), a Cube 20X, a BC-60 Blues Cube 1 x 12 and a (COSM) Bass Cube 100. Not long ago I very reluctantly sold my 3 x 10 Blues Cube (needed the space) and many years ago I had one of the orange 100-watt cubes from the original series - still regret parting with that one. Seriously great amps, all of them. My best buddy, a pro player, has a Cube 60 too, and also a Micro Cube, with which he and I are both extremely impressed.

    I love my Street Cube,, awesome little amp / small PA.. I use it mostly for Acoustic Guitar and a Vocal Mic as a small PA.. it sounds much bigger then it looks and much bigger then the wattage specs.. and battery powered is a giant plus ....

    I've had my Cube 30 for 7 years now - incredible amp for its physical size. I need to look at the new series though to see what the 12" speaker sounds like in the higher-end models. Just curious....

    Here's a pic of my set-up with my '68 Tele.

    Nice little rig there T! What's the little board there?
    You might want to take the 40XL for a test drive too! I'm loving it!

    The two small footswiches are for turning the effects on/off and switching channels.

    I have a cube 60 that I got for Jazz....great for so much more. Loves my pedalboard and is portable .........and really, has there ever been a quieter and tougher amp produced?

    My son and I use a microcube, it's great. I keep it on the screen porch sometimes and it's great to bring almost anywhere. I want a bass cube next.

    I have a Micro Cube with the single speaker, I like it, lots of fun. Goes forever on a set of batteries, which is good because I can't find my wall plug.

    Cube 30 here. I am a big fan of these amps. Loud enough to gig with and once the drummer starts, nobody knows it's not a tube amp.
