Compact Guitar Amp with Modeling, Overdrive, and More!

Roland's original CUBE Series may well have been the best sounding, "practice" guitar amps we've encountered. Roland's CUBE-30X takes that amazing sound and adds some equally amazing new features. The CUBE-30X is called a practice amp, but that's just because it's compact and easily portable (and very affordable, by the way). In reality, the CUBE-30X packs a punch you won't believe with great new features such as Power Squeezer for maximum sustain without maximum volume, a fully equipped guitar tuner, acoustic simulation inherited from BOSS AC-3, a mini-jack aux in for playing along to MP3 and CD players, COSM amp modeling with the amazing Dyna Amp feature, and of course that incredible CUBE sound!

Roland CUBE-30X at a Glance:
  • 30-watt, 2-channel amp with 10" speaker and effects.
  • COSM amp-modeling and Dyna Amp feature.
  • Recording/headphone out, aux input, footswitch in, and onboard tuner
  • Power Squeezer for maximum gain and sustain - even at low volumes

30-watt, 2-channel Amplifier
The CUBE-30X has has a 2-channel configuration that lets you switch between a clean channel and a "lead" channel with separate gain and volume controls. The CUBE-30X also features onboard effects that include reverb, delay, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tremolo. A 3-band EQ lets you shape your tone across the frequency spectrum. The CUBE-30X sends 30 watts of power at 8 ohms into a high-quality 10" speaker.

COSM Amp-modeling and Dyna Amp
The CUBE-30X comes with nine onboard COSM Amp models, including JC, Brit Combo, Tweed, Metal Stack, and R-Fier. The CUBE-30X also includes an acoustic simulator taken from the BOSS AC-3. COSM modeling faithfully provides every inspired nuance and characteristic of a variety of classic and modern amps, down to the preamp and circuits, speaker and outputs. Roland's "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-30X by picking softly, or a powerful hi-gain amp sound by picking more aggressively. Dyna Amp's distortion can create cool tonal transitions based on the intensity of your performance.

Recording/Headphone out and Aux In
Aside from the usual 1/4" guitar input, the CUBE-30X also has a auxiliary input (mini-jack) that allows you to input signals from an MP3 player, CD, player, or drum machine etc and play along. There's also a 1/4" record/headphone out that enables silent practice or recording - great for those late night bedroom jams and recording sessions. The CUBE-30X also allows you to switch channels and select effects via a TRS footswitch input. Another great all-around feature is a fully-equipped onboard guitar tuner.

Power Squeezer for maximum gain
Speaking of bedroom jams, if you need to play at lower volumes (we say "need" cause no self-respecting rocker wants to), Roland has thoughtfully included a new feature called the Power Squeezer. As you know, when you bring down the volume of an amp past a certain point, it stops responding properly - sustains don't last and the tone just isn't right. The Power Squeezer keeps the speaker loaded as though major gain is going through it. The result, is that you can play at extremely low volumes without losing the sustain or great response that comes with playing at higher volumes.

Roland CUBE-30X Features:
  • 30 watts of power
  • clean and overdrive channels
  • Powerful COSM amp-modeling onboard
  • High-quality 10" speaker
  • Recording/headphone output and auxiliary input
  • TRS footswitch jack for selection and effects
  • Acoustic simulation inherited from BOSS AC-3
  • Convenient onboard tuner
  • Power Squeezer for maximum gain and sustain - even at low volumes
All the tone you need and portability you want — the CUBE-30X!
