OVERVIEW

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.

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

  • 40 Watts with custom-designed 10-inch speaker

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 have played guitar for many years , mostly at home as a hobbyist. This amp is great for home use. I have a tube amp and find it is often too much for small rooms. This gives you great sound and a lot of efx. It also has plenty of power to gig with if needed.its very light and portable. The only negative is it dosent have the warmth of a tube amp. It's pretty much the perfect amp for home and practice. It even good for acoustic guitars with that setting.

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

    This amp at 40 watts is enough to stay in front of the drummer at band practice. If you want to use it to gig I would go for the 80 watt model with the 1X12. However this amp is light and easy to take anywhere. Also the effects are outstanding. I have a very elaborate pedal board I use for show but honestly the on board effects on the Cube are almost as good. The one weak effect is the distortion but get yourself an EVH distortion pedal and you will rock.

          Great grab and go amp, don't need no pedals, nothing, just your guitar and cable. Great for small club Gigs, plenty loud enough. Only improvement I would like to see is a place to store the power cord.

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

            i have the Cube 20. wanted the advanced foot switch and full time rev and delay plus effects...
            so the Cube 40 does all that... a tad louder ( not that the 20 is not loud too) and about the same size... got a great deal and it rocks ..
            all i really wanted was what the amp has.... some rev, delay, chorus or tremolo, channel switching and easy to use...
            i own the Amplifi floor unit.... and it has 5,902,912 sounds.... but i really only need 3 and i get that with the Cube with instant chan switching and knobs i can turn that actually do something.
            did i mention its loud. also...you can use the 4 pin cable they send to do some cool stuff... but even better buy the Sescom IPHONE-MIC-1 adapter and a xlr male to male adapter and you get a DI out.
            and buy the foot switch. its well worth the 99.

                    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.
