OVERVIEW

Great tone and features you can use anywhere.

The Roland 3W 1x5" MICRO CUBE GX 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 MICRO CUBE GX 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 GX 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.

FEATURES
  • Power: 3W
  • Ultra-compact portable DSP guitar amp with 5-inch speaker
  • Runs on battery or AC power (adapter supplied) and includes carry strap
  • i-CUBE LINK jack provides simple audio interfacing with Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (interface cable included)
  • 8 COSM guitar amp models including JC-120 and a special mic preamp model
  • 8 DSP effects: chorus, flanger, phaser, tremolo and separate Delay/Reverb
  • Built-in chromatic tuner
  • Recording/Headphones output and stereo Auxiliary input for CD players, etc.

        The description should state that this amp is great for all instruments not only guitar. I use it for my fiddle piano.

          Ideal for jamming in the back yard or carry it down to the local shopping mall for some serious busking. Long battery life.

          Only one 6mm jack input but that's all you need.

            This is my first amp for my ibanez acoustic-electric guitar. The acoustic sim setting provides decent clean playback, the many effects just add to the pleasure of figuring out my guitar even more. It won't be long before I have to get an electric guitar to have even more fun.

                  I was at a music festival and the guitarist I was hanging with was using one of these by the campfire in a jam setting. I was stunned by the amount and quality of the sound he was getting so I bought one when I got home. I love it! I have fenders, and orange amps, but Im using this lil guy now at home to play and practice. The range of tone is amazing. I have been playing it every day and smiling like a kid! The effects are a wow too! All n all you just gotta love this little amp. I might buy one for a buddy I am such a fan..

                    I have played drums all my life, new to guitar. I had an old Peavey backstage amp and I was not interested in playing my new Telecaster through it, I just bought the Cube GX 3 w and it is so fun to play my electric now. I was using an acoustic/electric every day since I started a few months ago, now I like to use the electric guitar. I think if someone is new to the guitar, this is a great motivator to sit down and practice, it makes you think you are pretty good. Which I am, haha.
