Roland CUBE-80X Guitar Amplifier at a Glance
The most powerful amplifier in the CUBE Series
The CUBE-80X offers up serious power, performance, and punch. Plus, its compact and lightweight design makes it easy to transport from rehearsal to gig, while its powerful 80-watt output and built in COSM effects and amp models ensures your performance won't go unnoticed - or unheard!
80 watts of power, two channels, and new SOLO memory function
The CUBE-80X packs in 80 watts of power through a 12" speaker and gives you two different channels - a Clean channel and a Lead channel - to play through. What's more, on the new CUBE-80X, there's also a special SOLO function with memory, so you can recall your preset amplifier tones - or use it as a third channel.
10 COSM amplifier models, with new DLX Combo model
The CUBE-80X comes with 10 onboard COSM Amp models, including JC, British Combo, R-Fier, and a new DLX Combo. COSM modeling faithfully provides every inspired nuance and characteristic of a variety of classic and modern amps, down to the preamplifier and circuits, speaker and outputs. Roland's new "Dyna Amp" amp type lets you create unique tone transitions based on picking dynamics. You can get a transparent clean output sound on the CUBE-80X by picking softly, or a powerful high-gain amplifier sound by picking more aggressively. Dyna Amp's distortion can create cool tonal transitions based on the intensity of your performance.
Easy-to-use Looper plus onboard effects
Also onboard the new CUBE-80X is a handy looper. With it, you can create thick sound-on-sound performances and build up songs or beds of rhythm riffs to solo over. It's both an excellent practice tool and performance tool. Also onboard the CUBE-80X are a bunch of high-quality effects, including chorus, flange, phase, tremolo, reverb, and delay with tap tempo.
Built-in chromatic tuner
An onboard chromatic tuner makes the CUBE-80X your one-stop solution for everything from great tones to tuning up.
Auxiliary input for connect your music player
Thanks to the CUBE-80X's 1/8" auxiliary input, you can easily hook up your MP3 player - or another audio source - and practice along. There's also a handy recording/headphone output, a line output, and an output for an external speaker.

All I've freamed of in aan affordable amp!
by DWS from Kansas City, USAThis is the first time I've ever written a review on any thing!This little amp goes above and beyond for both electric and nylon/acoustic applications. It is rock solid as a clean amp, with incredibl... read more [+]e deep and bright tones and capable of very loud volumes w/o breaking up. All the controls are very responsive and the modeling and effects sound great! I am able to dial-in the exact tones for my many guitars, including acoustic-electric. Way more than I expected. close [-]

Cube 80x amp great for home use
by Adrian D'Souza from Mississauga,I find too much noise comes out of the amp if I have the volume over 25%. Then again 25% volume is perfect to light up my entire townhome.

It's very versatile, meaning you get a lot of... read more [+] features. If you're specializing in a particular type of music you'd want to buy something different but if you want a wide range of sounds, and a lot of features its ideal.
You can play a backing track through its CD/DVD input, and also hook up pedals. It's got all kinds effects like Chorus, Flanger, Tremolo, and Phaser. It can simulate an acoustic. You can output the sound to a headphones for practicing in the wee hours without waking up the neighbours.
Bottom line more professional amps sound better for their particular area but they don't come with as many built in features nor the versatility of 10 COSM amps, built in tap delay and reverb.
You can control all these features with the purchased of a Cube 80X footboard off amazon.com for under $150.. Or buy a simply $30 footswitch to flip between clean and dirty. There's even a third programmable solo channel.
For home use its unbeatable. I also bought a Godin velocity guitar which has a very wide range of versatility too.
Keep it up Roland. Its a great amp for those who want versatility, power enough to light up a townhouse without NOISE in background. I'm sure it could light up my street but it would sound too noisy (meaning dirty noise, not good noise ) :-)
love the features but the 60 sounds better :(
by whatkeysthisin from the stae of south jerseyits got the power, its got all the bells and whistles- it just doesn't have the tone or the mojo of the 60 watt cube.the microcube line even sounds better. sorry it bums me out too I had high hopes fo... read more [+]r this baby. close [-]

NOT a good metal amp!
by Colton Schramm from Prescott, WII bought this amp with high expectations, i had played it before and it sounds incredible... at LOW volumes. When practicing with my band, the amp was completely embarrassing, before i even got to fiv... read more [+]e (on the volume) the amp was completely numb on the low ends and didn't quit. Pretty soon i was only playing with a medium loud piece of dung that sounded like an animal dieing. I would only play with acoustics on this, no distortion! close [-]
