OVERVIEW

A compact and portable amp with features and power to do whatever you need.

Building on the top-level tone and rock-solid reliability that's made the CUBE name famous, the all-new CUBE-GX series turns up the heat with even more versatile operation and connectivity for Apple's iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Small yet mighty, the CUBE-20GX is a potent tone machine with features and performance that easily make it the best value in its class. Three footswitchable channels include JC CLEAN, LEAD, and a fully programmable SOLO channel, with built-in sound enhancement on tap in three independent effects sections. i-CUBE LINK turns the CUBE-20GX into a powerhouse for practice and mobile recording, providing a simple onboard audio interface for working with music apps on your favorite iOS devices.

VERSATILE TONES AND THREE INDEPENDENT CHANNELS
With three independent channels and a wide selection of great guitar tones, the CUBE-20GX is ready for playing any musical style. The JC CLEAN channel provides the clean sound of Roland's famous JC-120, while the versatile LEAD channel offers six tones to choose from. Included are distortion sounds from warm OVERDRIVE to the massive gain of EXTREME, plus a cool acoustic guitar simulator. The SOLO channel is fully programmable, allowing you to store all settings from either the JC CLEAN or LEAD channel, along with EQ and effects choices. Channels can be selected from the front panel or remotely via optional BOSS FS-5U or FS-6 footswitches.

TOP-QUALITY EFFECTS AND ONBOARD TUNER
Three separate effects sections supply pro guitar processing right onboard the CUBE-20GX, with simple controls for dialing up great tones with ease. The EFX section offers five stompbox-type effects, while the dedicated DELAY section provides two different delay types. REVERB is included as well, with your choice of vintage spring emulation or a studio-style plate. The CUBE-20GX also features a chromatic/manual tuner, conveniently built right into the amp!

I-CUBE LINK: BUILT-IN INTERFACE FOR IOS DEVICES
Onboard the CUBE-20GX is Roland's innovative i-CUBE LINK interface, which lets you integrate with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using a real guitar amp with great tone. Unlike typical bulky and inconvenient iOS guitar interfaces, i-CUBE LINK connects to your device's audio jack quickly and simply with the included cable, providing two-way communication with your favorite music apps. With i-CUBE LINK, you can play along with music tracks and send studio-quality guitar tones with effects straight into the recording app of your choice. The versatile i-CUBE LINK jack can also be used as a simple stereo input, enabling you to plug in nearly any music player or audio device and play it through the CUBE-20GX.

CUBE JAM APP: POWERFUL, FUN AND FREE
Available for free from the App Store, the Roland CUBE JAM app turns your iOS device into a fun command center for jamming, recording, and learning. Play back commercial songs and minus-one tracks through the CUBE-20GX via i-CUBE LINK and riff along for hours with the amp's great tones. CUBE JAM also records audio through the i-CUBE LINK connection, letting you capture your jams with a single touch. After recording, you can adjust the volume of your guitar and backing music independently in the app, then export your mix to a 16-bit, 44.1kHz WAV file. CUBE JAM also includes powerful tools for music practice, including independent speed and pitch adjustment of audio playback, Center Cancel to remove solos and create your own jam tracks, and more.

  • 20 watts with custom-designed 8-inch speaker
  • Three channels: JC CLEAN, LEAD (six different types), and SOLO
  • SOLO channel is fully programmable, allowing you to save and recall JC CLEAN or LEAD sound type plus EQ and effects settings

  • i-CUBE LINK jack provides simple audio interfacing with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (interface cable included)

          Comments about Roland CUBE-20GX 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

          Best 20 watt solid state amp I've played through. If you think you have to have tubes, more power to you. Much louder and clearer than I expected. This is my second Roland product, but I have used my friends also. Roland's got making small great sounding amps down to a science. Everything you need and then some.

            I love the mp3 function! I'm jamming along with the big bands and learning lots of new songs, I dialed in some great sounds, the clean is perfect! Doesn't sound like a full stack but great for practice!

                during my rehearsal from other guitar player I was amazed with the sound it ditches' I rated 4 stars for the reason of nothing on this size to compare with on my arsenal, blown away guy

                  Comments about Roland CUBE-20GX 20W 1x8 Guitar Combo Amp:

                  I was looking for a versatile solid state that I could keep at my office and home to jam quietly without sacrificing sound quality. I normally play through a hot rod delux, and you've got to get that thing cranked to really get the sound where it needs to be. I tried this out at my local music store after trying about three others that all sounded the same. This thing was so different! Powerful but still had a great presence at a lower volume. Super versatile sound with awesome effects. I think it's easy for smaller solid states to all sound the same, even with different presets. This guy is unlike anything else I've played. I bought it right there without a second thought. It's Saturday morning and I can't wait to get back into the office on Monday and jam on this again!
