OVERVIEW

Compact 10 W guitar amp with custom-designed 8" speaker, three amp types and multiple controls.

Roland CUBE amps are legendary for their superior sound quality and rugged durability. The CUBE-01 has these CUBE family traits along with an ultra-portable design and ultra-affordable price. Powered by Roland' modeling technology, the CUBE-01 includes Clean, Lead, and Acoustic amplifier types, making it three amps in one. So you can jam, practice, and record your favorite music with your favorite guitar. The compact CUBE-01 delivers big, full sound with its custom 8-inch speaker and heavy-duty cabinet design, and also includes options for shaping your tone even further with three-band EQ and onboard reverb effect.

Compact size, big sound
Pros have been playing CUBE amps for over 30 years and the CUBE-01 represents all the reasons why. With its versatile amp sounds, simple-yet-powerful tone controls, and high-caliber effects, the CUBE-01 is ideal for both beginning guitarists and experienced players looking for a great sounding small amp. The CUBE-01 is equipped with Bass, Middle, and Treble controls for fine-tuning your tone on each of the three amplifier types, plus reverb can be dialed up easily with a single intuitive knob. It' easy to sound good with the CUBE-01. Just plug-in your acoustic or electric guitar, choose your amp type, and go!

Built to Last and Blast
Renowned CUBE construction quality provides rich, full sound and maximum durability. The custom-designed 8-inch speaker is protected behind a polished metal grille and housed inside a closed-back cabinet with ultra-rigid construction, heavy-duty corner protectors, and rubber feet to prevent unwanted vibration from other surfaces. This level of build quality not only makes the CUBE-01 super strong, it makes it sound like a
much bigger amp. From bedroom practice to jamming with friends to tracking in the studio, the CUBE-01 delivers pro-level guitar tones wherever you play.

Form and Function
With the bonus Auxiliary Input jack the CUBE-01 is perfect for practicing at home, at school, or backstage. Simply plug-in your music player or smart phone and jam along with your favorite tunes. There' also a Record Output/Phones jack, which mutes the onboard speaker and provides a direct output complete with amp speaker modeling. This is a great feature for quiet practice with headphones, and also for tracking the CUBE-01' pro amp tones directly into your favorite recording device. Practice and record any time of day or night with no compromises.

FEATURES
  • Three amp types: Clean, Lead, and Acoustic
  • Onboard reverb effect with dedicated knob
  • Bass, Middle, and Treble tone controls

I got this Cube-01 to have a lightweight practice amp around the house for learning songs and playing concerts for myself. It is loud. The clean channel stays clean under the onslaught of my Carvin guitar's humbuckers. The OD channel goes from classic rock crunch to violin-like sustain. The bass, mid, and treble controls work for all the tonality I need.

Reverb- I am happy. I didn't want any other effect. The reverb sounds nice. It is a necessity for me and this amp supplies it.

The acoustic setting- Suprise! This setting sounds very nice with my Taylor acoustic and La Patrie classical guitars. Both are equipped with K&K Minipure pickups. The PUs want to see a 1 Megohm input impedance. The Cube-01 supplies this. Feedback has not been a problem.

Durability- remains to be seen. I got this at a very attractive price. I don't expect boutique workmanship for an assembly line amp made in China. The gray cabinet looks good. It seems solid and durable; no rattles. The control knobs don't feel sloppy. There is a front port in addition to the 8" speaker. That may be contributing to the good sound.

To wrap up, I like this amp and feel my money was well spent. This amp gives me just the features I need and none I don't want.

Works well for what I got it for: a nice clean sound in a very portable unit (only 10 pounds). The lead setting has way too much of the type of pick noise that tends to be produced by modeling amps or pedals. The acoustic setting seems to work pretty well for amplifying an acoustic guitar. Has plenty of power for my purpose--accompanying an acoustic guitar and a few singers in a church--but of course it wouldn't work in a band setting.

              This is a great little amp for the money. It has three channels, clean, lead and one for acoustic guitar. The volume on the acoustic channel seems a little lower than the others, but could be the guitar I was testing it with. You can play very loud with this amp without it sounding distorted. I think that at this price point the Roland Cube-01 amp is a real bargain.

                I have two other Roland amps and they are my favorite amplifier company. I saw this compact Roland Cube 01 come up for sale and since I have a Micro Cube and a Cube 40, I thought this would be a nice addition. It has more power than the Micro and is easier to tote around than the Cube 40. It has a very nice, full clean sound and a very nice overdrive. It is not as versatile as the Cube 40 but it is 1/3 the price! Plenty loud for home practice and very nice tones from the speaker. I am really happy with this amp.

                Comments about Cube-01 Compact 10W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

                So far this appears to be a good practice amp. Takes a little experimenting to find the best use of the three modes since changing modes greatly affects volume. Volume is very sensitive to guitar input and easy to overdrive. Small jack for headphones seems to be subpar (noisy). Otherwise, sound quality is pretty good for a practice amp. Reverb is OK. This is a good amp for someone just starting to play electric or if you just need a personal practice amp. Not quite enough volume to play in group or gig. Could also work as a recording amp for use with a mic. Overall I like it and would recommend as a good value. Gave it as a gift to my grandson.

                I love how it sounds and on the lead channel your acoustic sounds like an electric. It can get loud!
                I don't like how clear the sound is ,though
