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.

FLEXIBLE COMBO FOR GIGGING, RECORDING, AND PRACTICE
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.

COSM AMPS AND THREE INDEPENDENT CHANNELS
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.

TOP-QUALITY EFFECTS AND MORE
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!

POWERFUL PERFORMANCE CONTROL
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.

I-CUBE LINK: BUILT-IN INTERFACE FOR IOS DEVICES
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.

CUBE JAM APP: POWERFUL, FUN AND FREE!
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.

Features
  • 40 Watts with custom-designed 10-inch speaker
  • Three channels: JC CLEAN, LEAD (with 10 different COSM amp types), and SOLO
  • SOLO channel is fully programmable, allowing you to save and recall amp type plus EQ and effects settings
  • Three independent effects sections: EFX (five types), DELAY with tap tempo, and REVERB
  • Hands-free channel switching, effects on/off, and more via GA-FC Foot Controller (sold separately)

    I wanted to put this amp through it's paces before I commented, it is everything, and more, than I expected ! I also purchased the GA-FC pedal, a must buy if you plan to use it on stage.

        Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

        I had checked a lot of reviews first & tried a number of amps. For my level of playing I decided tube amps were not for me. I definitely won't be using all the tones and effects, but there's enough built in that I don't need to add any pedals.

        I made my decision, emailed my regular GC sales guy with a request to price match, and got that along with a $40 rebate from Roland as well.

        The rebate offer may indicate that there's a newer model out soon, but this covers all my bases, so now it's up to me to get better.

          Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

          I have an amp with all the pedals, but I wanted something really simple that would give me a diversity of sounds for small, coffeehouse gigs without the hassle of pedals or a difficult setup. This amp really meets the need. I love the clean JC 120 sound, but the other tones are quite nice as well. The 40 watts had much more sound/volume than I expected. I am really thrilled with this amp.

                Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

                I've played guitar for nearly 40 years, and while I don't make my living at it, I have learned a fair bit about sound and what makes for good sound. It's got a lot of depth of tone and richness to it. It does a very good emulation of a Roland Jazz Chorus, but can turn around and rock the roof off. It has a multitude of settings and adjustments that give it a lot of versatility.

                I'm personally fond of the JC clean setting with some reverb and a touch of delay for deliciously liquid jazz sounds, and the British Combo and Tweed settings for blues.

                Well modeled effects give this little amp even more versatility. the controls are a little bit limiting, but to do it any other way would make the controls more complicated and hard to use so it's a tradeoff I accept.

                Did I mention this little amp is LOUD ... Great presence and tone all the way through the volume band.

                You could pay 3X as much and not get anywhere near as much amp.

                Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

                I would say I am probably a little more than a novice player and love to play my Ernie Ball Music Man Axis guitar to backing tracks. It is fantastic therapy for me. I use this amp to shred to backing tracks every night and can get the sounds and effects that I need for the rock music that I play. I have also been migrating to more "mobile" types of gear which this helps fill the bill perfectly. Won't break you back carrying it around the house or to a gig. Plus it really has a big rich sound to it. So far I've bought several Roland products and have been extremely impressed with sound, durability and quality. I am so impressed that I might even go for the 80-GX.

                exceptional sound and value

                Comments about Roland CUBE-40GX 40W 1x10 Guitar Combo Amp:

                I've owned 4 amps over the past 30 years of guitar playing. Admittedly I took a couple of decades off from playing electric, but recently purchased this amp and it is an exceptional value. I play jazz and blues mostly, with some rock or modern music mixed in. this amp offers a lot of clean volume and sound options for what you pay.

                perfect for practice, strong enough to gig depending on venue and set up. Unlike a lot of options in this price range, Roland makes a durable amp. nothing about this feels disposable.
