Musical, Highly Responsive Amp Tones With Tube Logic

Warm, bouncy, responsive, dynamic, and elastic-these are all terms that guitarists use to describe the satisfying experience of playing their favorite tube amps. Thanks to Roland’s Tube Logic, these words can be applied to the Roland Blues Cube Artist as well. Dramatically evolved from the first-generation sound of the original Blues Cube amps from the ’90s, today’s Tube Logic accurately provides the complex, highly interactive behavior of classic tube designs in meticulous detail, providing the magical it factor that takes a guitar amp from a simple sound system to a living, breathing musical instrument. Great feel, distortion control with touch and volume, bloom, sparkle, power supply sag, and more-everything that players love about a finely tuned vintage tube amp is present in abundance with the Blues Cube.

Performance-Ready Amp For Pro Players

Ready for live playing, the Roland Blues Cube Artist is equipped with 80 watts of power, plus a custom 12-inch speaker specially designed for maximum tonal response with Tube Logic. The open-back cabinet features poplar plywood construction, which offers an acoustically vibrant tone for solo or group performances.

Clean, Crunch, And Dual Tone

The Roland 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’s 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 stompboxes, allowing you to further shape your personal sound by hitting the amp’s 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 certainly never stopped guitarists from trying! With Tube Logic, the Blues Cube authentically delivers the complex distortion characteristics of 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 can enjoy this musical, cranked-up tone while matching the volume to any situation, from recording to rehearsals to nightclub gigs and beyond.

Maintenance-Free And Easy On Your Back

With its modern approach, the Blues Cube eliminates two of the big drawbacks found in all tube amps powerful enough for stage playing-they are extremely heavy and prone to vibration damage, and they require frequent tube replacement and other costly maintenance to keep them going strong. In contrast, the Blues Cube is basically maintenance-free and has been carefully designed to reduce weight in every area that does not affect tone. With the Blues Cube, you are able to enjoy great tube sound at every gig, but with much easier load-in and no actual tubes to worry about!

Effects, Foot Control, And Direct Recording Via USB

The Roland Blues Cube Artist features onboard reverb and tremolo, plus an effects loop for patching in any external effect that you like. The rear panel has jacks for connecting an optional footswitch such as the GA-FC Foot Controller, which provides remote switching for channel selection, Dual Tone mode, and on/off for the built-in tremolo and effects loop. And with the USB jack, it is simple to capture the Blues Cube Artist’s rich tones directly into your favorite computer recording applications.
