      Great tone and features you can use anywhere.

      The Roland 3W 1x5” Micro-CUBE combo amp gives you the same tone and versatility that you’ve come to know and love in the CUBE series, and puts it in a battery-powered package that you can take anywhere.It features recording/Headphones output and stereo Aux input for MP3/CD players, etc. The CUBE can be powered on batteries (LR6 (AA) type x 6) or a supplied AC adapter. It also includes a carrying strap.

      Rock for Hours on Batteries
      The Micro Cube GX features the same ultra-compact footprint, battery-powered operation, and big tone that made the original Micro Cube such a massive hit around the globe. With up to 25 hours of playing time using six NiMH AA-size batteries, you can enjoy uninterrupted fun while jamming at home, at the beach, on camping trips, at parties—wherever! Increased power output delivers even better performance than before, and a chromatic tuner is built in, eliminating the need to carry an external tuner when you play.

      8 Classic and Modern Amp Models
      Filled with Roland’s renowned COSM amps, the Micro Cube GX provides tones for playing any musical style, from ultra-clean jazz to heavy rock and everything in between. The newly added Extreme amp kicks things up a notch, giving you a massive voice for crushing, in-your-face metal riffs. There’s also a MIC setting for using the amp with a vocal microphone. Five different EFX types are available to sweeten your sound, with a new Heavy Octave effect that works great for adding unique, ultra-low power to distorted tones. An independent Delay/Reverb processor is onboard as well, with a newly added spring reverb option for authentic surf and roots-rock sounds.

      High-Quality Effects
      There’s no need to lug around pedals when the Micro Cube comes with eight DSP effects. All the essentials are included—from chorus and flanging to a phaser and tremolo effect. A separate Delay/Reverb processor lets you dial in anything from slapback and long delays to reverb and more (in addition to using one of the aforementioned modulation effects).

      Total Recall
      The new Memory function turns the Micro Cube GX into a dual-channel amp, greatly increasing its versatility. It couldn’t be simpler to use—just dial up the amp tone and effects you want, hold the Memory button for a few seconds, and your settings are saved! After that, you can toggle between the saved setup and the current knob settings with a quick button press. Use it for saving a favorite sound, switching between rhythm and lead tones, or calling up a special sound for a particular song or style.

          A friend recommended it to me for use in an apartment. It sounds wonderful at very low volumes so you don't need to always wear headphones when practicing with an electric. Wish I had tried one years ago.

              You will love this amp. Get from T-bone walker to Lou Reed in one little box. The thrashier settings are OK ... but the cleaner sounds with a little gain and reverb are just astounding. "Scratch My Back" with the tremelo... you could not ask for better. You'll be trying to get your "real" amp to sound like this thing.

                Great to bring your harmonica up to speed. Easy to use and works good with small to medium group, or play the effects through the output jack into the house PA system. Use the auxiliary input jack and play both Harp and Guitar at the same time.
                Rechargeable batteries last almost forever.

                  This is an excellent little modeler. I put batteries in it and jammed out on a friends balcony for a while. Each of the amp models has a sweet spot you will find and theres enough variation of amps and effects without getting overboad like some larger modeling amps. Its all straight and to the point. Sound quality is fine, you dont buy something like this expecting it to be a boutique amp. The effects are completely usable as long as you keep your expectations within reason. This was a great purchase for what I wanted.

                      Great for quiet acoustic/ electric guitar. I use it mainly to amp up my acoustic accompaniment during duet with another louder acoustic. Mic setting has a great bluesy sound with my Taylor 612. It really needs a metronome and/or rhythm setting
                      like the vox mini rhythm has. iOS app is pretty cool for playing along and song writing.
                      Will appeal to all playing styles and levels. Loud enough to play over a cajon or "quiet drums" not that great for micing for live performance with full band because it lacks
                      That tube "warmth" and compression however will work in a pinch. Street performance is adequate for experienced players but lacks dynamic control that larger speakers offer. Overall it's perfect for duet with cajon and brings smiles to all who hear it. 4 1/2 stars because it has no metronome for practice use.
