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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

    As reviewed by Ronald on 12/15/2014

    I needed an amp for my acoustic and electric guitar solo act. I first tried a Fender Mustang III and only after a few hours it started buzzing like crazy. Then I tried some other Fender amps but way to pricy for me. I read the reviews and YouTube videos on the Roland Cube 40GX. I ordered the Roland Cube 40GX and it has been perfect for me. I cannot say enough about the clean sound of this amp and effects. I mainly play soft blues and jazz on a Fender Strat and a Martin D-28. Last night I was ask to play a couple of songs at a church for Christmas. So I decided this would be a great time to try the Cube live. I plugged my Martin in using a A1 LR Baggs pick up and set the amp volume on about 4, JC Clean, a touch of reverb and delay. One song I fingered picked and another song I used a pick. Man. WOW. It sounded great and filled the whole church. So many people came up to me and said how good it sounded and really enjoyed the music I played. I am totally pleased with this amp and highly recommend it for anyone. Bigger venues? Mike it and your good to go.

  • CUBE 40 GX

    As reviewed by JACK on 12/1/2014

    I recently bought a used Cube 40GX from Guitar Center, I got a good deal on it. I have had several Roland Cubes from a 30 to a 40 XL an 80 xl and a few other ones like the 80x. I was on the fence about which one I wanted. I play in the orchestra at church and the Cubes really are the best for that venue. I wanted another 40XL but when I saw the new GX I thought that it might have something better. The only thing is that you can play it with your computer if you can manage to get the line for it. Ok it sounds great just like the 40XL same amp models, the lay out is a little different you can use any foot controller with it I use a Marshal two button switch it works fine. I have a Boss FS-6 that I have hung onto it is the one designed for these amps. Sorry this review is so long but there are things that you should know. The standard foot controller wont turn your fx's on and off. So you have three channels clean, channel 2 with the different amp models, and the solo/memory channel that you can save whatever you want with the fx's of your choice. That's it the foot controller that will switch everything cost a hundred bucks. I will be getting a 40XL to run with the 40GX at least the 40XL can control all your fx's if you have enough foot control switch pedals it will take three at the same time and has a built in looper. I did change the speaker out I have a Patriot Rajun Cagun 10 in. that really adds some thump to it and just sounds 100% better that the stock speaker. Bottom line the Roland 40's are great for an older guy that cant haul around heavy tube amps and you don't have to worry about someone leaving your amp on. Can you think about coming and finding out that some knuckle head left your tube amp on for three or four days. I have had my old Roland amps left on for three days an it worked fine.
