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. With 40 watts of power and a custom-designed 10-inch speaker, the compact CUBE-40GX is the ultimate go-everywhere amp for gigs, recording and practice at home. 11 COSM amp types and three independent channels-including a fully programmable SOLO channel-provide sounds for playing any style, with remote control of channel switching, effects, and more via the optional GA-FC Foot Controller. i-CUBE LINK takes practice and mobile recording to a new level, providing a built-in audio interface for working with music apps on your favorite iOS devices.

FLEXIBLE COMBO FOR GIGGING, RECORDING, AND PRACTICE
Featuring 40 watts of power, a custom-designed 10-inch speaker, and a slightly larger cabinet than previous designs for even better performance, the CUBE-40GX delivers satisfying, versatile guitar tones with integrated effects. Compact and easy to carry, it provides plenty of volume for everyday playing at small clubs, coffee houses, houses of worship, rehearsals, and beyond. For recording, you can use the CUBE-40GX's RECORDING OUT/PHONES jack to mute the onboard speaker and send studio-quality tones with COSM speaker modeling directly to an audio interface or mixing board. Headphones can be used with this jack as well, perfect for silent practice sessions. Built with legendary CUBE construction standards, the CUBE-40GX is rugged, reliable and ready for the long haul.

COSM AMPS AND THREE INDEPENDENT CHANNELS
The CUBE-40GX is equipped with a wide range of COSM amp types and three independent channels for maximum tonal versatility. The JC CLEAN channel provides the renowned clean tone of Roland's famous JC-120, while the LEAD channel offers ten different amp choices, from blackface clean to Brit overdrive to the original EXTREME amp for massive, high-gain metal riffs. A third SOLO channel is completely programmable, allowing you to store all settings from either the JC CLEAN or LEAD channel, along with EQ and effects.

TOP-QUALITY EFFECTS AND MORE
With three independent, easy-to-use effects sections, the CUBE-40GX gives you a full arsenal of top guitar processing onboard. The EFX section offers five different stompbox-type effects, while the dedicated DELAY section has two different delay types and a TAP button for quickly setting delay times. REVERB is included as well, with your choice of vintage spring emulation or a studio-style plate. The CUBE-40GX also features a chromatic/manual tuner, built right into the amp!

POWERFUL PERFORMANCE CONTROL
The optional GA-FC Foot Controller is the perfect partner for the CUBE-40GX, with six footswitches for selecting amp channels and turning effect sections on/off. It's also equipped with two expression pedal jacks for foot control of input and master volumes. Setup time is lightning fast-the GA-FC requires no AC power adapter, and connects easily via its included stereo 1/4-inch cable. Remote channel switching on the CUBE-40GX is also possible with optional BOSS FS-5U or FS-6 footswitches.

I-CUBE LINK: BUILT-IN INTERFACE FOR IOS DEVICES
Onboard the CUBE-40GX 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 COSM 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-40GX.

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-40GX via i-CUBE LINK and riff along for hours with the amp's great COSM 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, 44.1 kHz 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.

FEATURES
  • 40 Watts with custom-designed 10-inch speaker
  • Three channels: JC CLEAN, LEAD (with 10 different COSM amp types), and SOLO
  • SOLO channel is fully programmable, allowing you to save and recall amp type plus EQ and effects settings
  • Three independent effects sections: EFX (five types), DELAY with tap tempo, and REVERB
  • Hands-free channel switching, effects on/off, and more via GA-FC Foot Controller (sold separately)
  • i-CUBE LINK jack provides simple audio interfacing with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (interface cable included)
  • Free CUBE JAM app for iOS plays songs and minus-one jam tracks, and lets you record the CUBE-40GX's COSM amp tones along with music playback

I was a bit concerned the Cube 40gx would be too lightweight to sound good at small gigs (I had only heard a Cube 80 in a live gig before), but the Cube 40 with it's 10in speaker is one of the best sounding solid state amps I've ever heard. It is head and shoulders above the Vox line of small solid state amps (I have one of those and it is just not comparable). It is so much lighter than other amps in this range (like Line 6). It's very light in weight, and combing that with good volume and tone, that's the primary asset ... portability and really good sound. On the clean settings it has lots of headroom ... it stays clean at healthy volume. The amp models are very good too.

I've very pleased.

I am using this at home for practice. It definitely has the balls to keep up with the drummer I am playing with! I have put it through its paces, and it is quite a little monster amp.I would have given a higher rating if it had come to me "alive". (See comment below)

        Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I wanted a smaller amp, without sacrificing tone and the ability to fill a room. The Cube 40GX met all expectations and has exceeded them. Going from a 100W amp, I was wondering about how a 40W would perform. It kicks some serious butt. Since I mic my amp, it easily fills small & large venues. Very pleased.

            This little amp does it all. Play jazz? Play Metallica ? No problem, mellow to wild and only weighs 20 pounds. This amp is easier to use than my GA212.

            Loving this great amp. If you get this, or any other Roland Cube GX model, do yourself a favor and pick up the Roland GA-FC foot controller at the same time. Roland should really sell the amp and footswitch as a set or MF should sell together as a bundle of some sort. If the Roland GA-FC came with this as a package, would have given 5 stars.

                  If you're looking for really good tone for recording projects and live performance this is a great solution. Sounds better than Line6 to my ears. Sounds as good as my Mesa Boogie .50 caliber +. Different but as useable

                    I own 3 40watt cubes. I was looking for an amp that would be good for a basement studio and this amp fit the bill. The main positive quality of this amp is it's full sound, both on the clean and lead channels. Its sounds so much bigger than it is. The lead/overdrive channel has a few variations which prove useful. The tuner is great but awkward to use but it is nice to have. The one issue I have found annoying is the footswitch. They are too expensive and the choice latching vs non-latching leaves you wondering. Its a little too much for an amp this size. That a side, the overall sound and performance of the amp is very high and would have no problem recommending it.

                    Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

                    This amp really surprised me. I thought that for such a low price point the sound quality would be average at best, but I was very pleasantly surprised. It has a ton of different sounds, and it is very adjustable.
                    I have been playing it with several different guitars and it has worked well with all.
                    I mostly play jazz and was very surprised with the jazz tone that it has. I honestly did not truly believe the jazz reviews, but it does sound great.

                    However, there are some heavy rock sounds that do sound a bit digital. Then again, for this price we really can't get this picky.

                    es where i play. And also will prove in pubs from this week. The tuner is inconvenient to use, i hook a small korg tuner on d neck head instead. Amp's tuner is better as a mute button,haha.
                    What is not haha: my footswitch input is dead partially: i can switch between d clean and lead. But the "ring" is dead: it does not switch to the solo channel. I m sad bc where i stay there s no Roland. I have to ship it back which means more time more for me.
                    I dont like that there s no Line Out!
                    I used d aux in to hook singer's mic through a multieffect to have some reverb for her singing.

                    I was worried about having enough power. I just play for pleasure and jamming with friends. The 40GX has all the power I need to play in the house and a lot of other places to. It has some effects but my Les Paul does everything I want through the clean channel. With a built in tuner its a great home amp.
