Overview

The reinvented Blues Cube series launches the classic 1x12 combo amp into a new era, combining warm, buttery 6L6 tube sound and response with modern reliability and easy portability. Going far beyond modeling, Roland's Tube Logic design philosophy starts with carefully reproducing the inner workings of the revered tweed-era tube amp in every way, from guitar input to speaker output. Versatile clean and crunch channels can be used independently or combined for a complex range of tones, while variable output power modes let you dial in burning, full-throttle sound at any volume. Road-tested and fine-tuned with feedback from top players, the gig-ready Blues Cube delivers the sweet, magical tone and satisfying feel that makes a great guitar amp a highly expressive musical instrument.

Performance-Ready Amp
Ready for live playing, the Blues Cube Artist is equipped with 60 watts of power, plus a custom 12-inch speaker that's been specially designed for maximum tonal response with Tube Logic. The open-back cabinet features poplar plywood construction, which offers acoustically vibrant tone for solo or group performances.

Clean, Crunch and Dual Tone
The Blues Cube Artist has two independent channels—one voiced for cleaner tones, and the other for crunch. Each channel has its own Boost and Tone switches to shape the character. The Clean channel's single volume control dials in natural tube fullness and bite as the volume is cranked, while the Crunch channel' variable gain control provides a range of grit flavors from mild to aggressive. With the press of a switch, the unique Dual Tone mode lets you blend both channels together for an endless array of rich tones. And just like a vintage tube amp, the Blues Cube loves stomp-boxes, allowing you to further shape your personal sound by hitting the amp' front end with your favorite gain pedals.

Wide-Open Sound at Any Volume
Every tube-amp player knows that you really need to turn up the volume and push the output tubes to get the amp to sing at its best. The downside is that the sound simply becomes too loud for playing anywhere but the biggest stages—though that's certainly never stopped guitarists from trying! With Tube Logic, the Blues Cube authentically delivers the complex distortion characteristics of a pair of 6L6 output tubes and their interaction with the output transformer, with the sound getting richer and the feel becoming more dynamically responsive as the overall volume is increased. But with the Blues Cube's variable Power Control, you'e able to enjoy this musical, cranked-up tone while matching the volume to any situation, from recording to rehearsals to nightclub gigs and beyond.

      Comments about Roland Blues Cube Artist 80W 1x12 Guitar Combo Amp:

      I play every genre, but I bought this specifically for that warm slightly thick/creamy distorted bluesy tone. And this amp nails it!! The clean channel has a warm tone to it, not sparkling or thin like a solid state. But that is a good thing because this amp emulates the tube down to the bone, keep in mind this amp was created to the Fender Bassman voice, but most compare it to a HRD or BD tube amp (which is an inaccurate comparison). The blues cube has a more vintage 50's sound, I haven't tried the tone capsules yet, and honestly I don't think I will. Unless a Joe bonamassa, carlos santana or john mayer capsule is created, otherwise this amp in the natural gives me ALL the sounds I need. And it will do the same for you! I like my Les Pauls' burstbuckers/p-90's through it best, even though the strat sounds good aswell.
