Vintage amp tone with modern technology

Roland's Tube Logic design brings classic tweed tones to the Blues Cube Hot combo amplifier. Every aspect of these much-loved vintage amps from the preamp and output tube characteristics to the power supply compression to the speaker output is found in the Roland Blues Cube Hot. Pick players and fingerstyle players will love the touch response and sensitivity of this master-crafted amp. Sweetwater knows that amp tone and response are important to you, and we're confident that the Roland Blues Cube Hot can do the job.

Wide range of tones

The Roland Blues Cube Hot gives you two individually voiced channels. Like a tube amp, the clean channel's volume adds tube fatness and bite as you turn it up. The variable gain of the crunch channel lets you dial in the perfect amount of grit. You'll also find a switchable boost for adding crunch and a tone switch for more high-end presence. High-quality reverb adds dimension to your tone. And the Blues Cube Hot's custom 12" speaker is tonally versatile and ready to gig.

The flexibility for any gig

The Roland Blues Cube Hot is loaded with useful features designed to help the amp excel in any situation. Its cabinet's reduced size and mass makes it easy to transport while still offering full-size tone. The power control offers four power output settings ranging from full gigging volume all the way down to 0.5 watts for quiet practice. A headphone output lets you practice at any time of the day or night without disturbing your neighbors. And the USB record output is perfect for capturing your guitar sounds directly to your computer.

Roland Blues Cube Hot 30-watt Combo Guitar Amplifier Features:
  • Gig-ready digital amp with authentic tube-style tone
  • Voiced like vintage tweed-era amps
  • Reduced cabinet size for easy transport
  • Power control switches between 0.5, 15, 45, and 30 watts
  • High-quality reverb
  • Record directly to your computer via the USB output

  • NOTE: NOT compatible with Roland Tone Capsules
The Roland Blues Cube Hot may be the most giggable Blues Cube yet.

Creamy Blues!!

This amp sounds really Good! I just love the blues sound and this really gives it. When my buddy heard me strike the first few notes on it all he could say was"Wow". I watched alot of reviews on this being compared to a Fender Blues Junior because that was the amp I was going to buy, but what made me decide to jump the fence and buy this was the fact that it had a built in attentuator where you could dial it down from 30w to 1/2 a watt. Also it gave the tube sound without having any tubes! Don't have to worry about the tubes! Love it!!!

This Thing is Awesome!!

Before purchasing this I was lugging my 75 pound AC30 with me everywhere. I love the sound of that Vox amp, but as my band was having more and more practices, it just wasn't very practical to carry it around every week. I looked into getting a smaller 1x12 tube amp, but just couldn't bring myself to pay that kind of money (especially since I already have all the tube power I will ever need in my AC30). I stumbled across this amp, and noticed there were ONLY solid reviews for it. After owning it for a few months, I totally understand why. This thing is LOUD! Often times at practice I will have it on the 5w setting, and the one gig I played with it - only had it on the 15w setting (as the amp was mic'd up into the PA). It takes my gain/distortion pedals SUPER well, it has a beautiful clean setting with LOT's of headroom, and it responds very well dynamically to how hard you're playing. Most of all I love that it's solid state. I sometimes have to remember that it is a solid state because is responds so much like a tube amp. Tube sound without the Tube maintenance and instability. Whether you're gigging, need an amp for band practice, or need a small amp for quiet at home practice, this thing will deliver! Totally worth the price!

Great Deal

This amp has been great for my situation. Our amps are mic'd on stage, so we can't have the amp too loud. The power attenuator allows you to dial a great tone at lower volumes. You can dial in a good clean tones. The drive button gives a pretty good distortion sound too. The reverb is very usable too. When playing leads, a reverb setting at 1 o'clock sounds very lush. I would definitely recommend this amp for worship music.

Dont pass this up!!!

This amp was everything I'd hoped it would be. I tried several different tube amps and nothing really suited my needs. The power attenuator was the main selling point along with the 12" speaker. Tone at low volume is very full. Very warm tone, still playing with various settings. Reverb is perfect. And this thing can go from a whisper to ear damaging. You can spend lots more if you think it's worth the brag factor...it's not. My last solid state amp was a Danelectro dirty thirty, It worked for 20 years with no maintenance, til the pots got too scratchy. How can you argue with that? Buy this amp!

Sweetwater Advice

Roland Blues Cube Hot

The .5-watt setting is probably designed with practice in mind, but I conjured several ultra-low-wattage tones that I wouldn't hesitate to use in the studio. My favorite was a boosted, reverb-on-10, scooped-mids, Stratocaster-neck-pickup tone that was silky, with a little bite....
