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

    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:

      I've taken up giving lessons in my home and, in other locations and, dragging around even a moderate size amp was not in my plans. I did some shopping and, came up with the Micro Cube as my answer, WOW what a feature filled little powerhouse! I debated going to just a plain small practice amp but, after I tried one it reminded me of trying to play through an old transistor radio. Very bland boring sound and, only a push button to get an overdrive sound that sounded pretty bad.
      This Roland unit sounds Fantastic at 3w and, with only a 5" speaker, I don't know how they do it but, it's Great!! The convenience of battery power is something that I really enjoy also. Take it anywhere! The FX sound Super, amp models are a nice touch and, even a tuner. The 1/8" input is a nice touch to jam with backing tracks or any type of sounds. Taking this to lessons is sooo much more handier than a 30lb. amp. There is only a tone control but, it is really all you need to get the sound you want. The memory function is a handy feature so save preset sounds for each amp model. The only thing I haven't tried is to plug a Mic in and, check it out but, I definately will and, I'm betting that the results will be positive there also. I'm soooo glad I spent the extra dinero and, went with this amp. I'm very satisfied and, definately recommend this anyone looking for small portable amp for practice or any other reason to have a light weight amp that sounds really good. I don't think that I would run a bass through it but, at low volume I wouldn't be surprised that it could handle it. I play a lot of different instruments, fiddle,mandolin,ulelele and, harmonica and, going to try them all in this amp.

        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!!!

        You will love this amp. Get from T-bone walker to Lou Reed in one little box. The thrashier settings are OK ... but the cleaner sounds with a little gain and reverb are just astounding. "Scratch My Back" with the tremelo... you could not ask for better. You'll be trying to get your "real" amp to sound like this thing.

          Great to bring your harmonica up to speed. Easy to use and works good with small to medium group, or play the effects through the output jack into the house PA system. Use the auxiliary input jack and play both Harp and Guitar at the same time.
          Rechargeable batteries last almost forever.
