The Blues Cube Artist Guitar Amplifier from Roland is equipped with 80W of power, and a 12" speaker with Tube Logic design. The versatile Clean and Crunch channels can be used independently or combined for a complex range of tones, while variable output power modes let you dial in burning, full-throttle sound at any volume. The open-back cabinet features poplar plywood construction, designed to offer an acoustically vibrant tone for solo or group performances.
The 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 Dual Tone mode lets you blend both channels together for a wide range of rich tones. And like a vintage tube amp, the Blues Cube works well with stompboxes, allowing you to further shape your personal sound by hitting the amp's front end with your favorite gain pedals.
For effects, the Blues Cube Artist features onboard reverb and tremolo, plus an effects loop for patching in external effects. The rear panel has jacks for connecting an optional footswitch such as the GA-FC Foot Controller (sold separately), which provides remote switching for channel selection, Dual Tone mode, and on/off for the built-in tremolo and effects loop. In addition, the amp's USB jack allows you to capture the Blues Cube Artist's rich tones directly into your computer recording applications.
