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.

    Comments about Roland Micro Cube GX 3W 1x5 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

    I can't say enough good things about this awesome little monster. There are some excellent battery-powered mini amps available (from Line 6 and Vox in particular) but I think the Roland Micro Cube is the best of the bunch. A large selection of tones and effects are available and easy to use and this thing is built to withstand a direct hit from a nuclear missile. Extremely well built. I have three friends who all have Micro Cubes and when we jam together our only rule is that we can only use our Micro Cubes and no other amps. Nobody ever has a problem dialing up any sound they want and we can sit in somebody's back yard and it never gets too loud to disturb the neighbors. I absolutely love this amp & give it my highest recommendation.

      Comments about Roland Micro Cube GX 3W 1x5 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

      I love this sweet sounding little amp. I was more concerned with the little 5 inch speaker than the 3 watts, even one watt can be loud. I guess that with a well designed cabinet, a 5 inch speaker can really rock because this little Roland Micro Cube GX is truly amazing. Don't be scared by the factory presets. The clean ones sounded sweet but the presets for the distortion amp models were very harsh sounding. With some adjusting and making my own presets I can get anything from sweet Carlos Santana solo sounds to extreme metal. At reasonable volume settings the classic stack and the rectifier stack amp models sound like there coming from a large cabinet. My only complaint is that the delay effect is very subtle, you can forget about playing anything like Van Hallen's Cathedral without the use of an external delay pedal. Both chorus and reverb sound nice and you can have both effects at the same time. The presets are an extremely nice and easy to use feature. At reasonable volume levels the tone from this simply fantastic.

      Comments about Roland Micro Cube GX 3W 1x5 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

      Primarily purchased as an amp that I can take anywhere (including work during lunch) that is light and doesn't require external power. Good, clean sounds and the amp modeling performs well. It has just enough effects to allow the music to be heard without muddying during faster passages or phrases. Enough punch so that the neighbors will take notice if I'm on the patio. Sounds excellent with my classical (nylon string) guitars.

          Comments about Roland Micro Cube GX 3W 1x5 Battery Powered Guitar Combo Amp:

          This little amp has it all except a huge speaker cabinet but you can output to a huge amp and fill a stadium. My pals and I were so impressed that most of us have a micro cube and the rest are looking for a deal on one. I have 3 myself 1 old style and 2 GX models. The memory presets are outrageous and you can memorize your own settings that are different for each amp type. Put a digitech trio with it and you have your own jam band to riff out to. I can't say when I was so happy with a product as I am with the Micro cube GX. And don't forget the app CUBE JAM for free when you get your own GX
          Practice and rehersal just got fun again!!!

              I just set this up today, downloaded Cube Jam and sat down and started noodleing. I had so much fun I completely lost track of time. This amp sounds pretty good for a small amp and has a pretty good set of options.

                Great amplifier! We are using it with a lapel mic and native American flute. Plenty of power and reverb to be heard over djembe drums.

                  This is my second Roland Cube. My first burned with my home on 3/1/13. I looked for one in pawn shops and music stores and couldn't fine on. Then I remembered Musicians Friend. I found a re-stock in mint condition. It Was, and I love my little amp. Friends are amazed at its capabilities and sound, while it is light. completely portable, and easy to use It was a great buy and a great price. The only drawback is that Musicians Friend uses UPS. I placed another order on 12/4, and today, 12/7, I still can't track it. MF shipped it, but it's not in the UPS "system." This is a super product.
