The Roland Micro Cube RX Guitar Combo Amplifier may look small, but it packs enough firepower to blow your socks off. Add to that a range of features that cater to a guitarist’s every need, including Roland’s exceptional COSM amp models and digital effects. Then craft a robust chassis and enclosure that is built like a tank, yet remains lightweight with an easy to carry strap, and you’ve pretty much got the perfect amp for busking, recording, practising, jamming, and warming up before gigs with. Pick up, plug in, and play wherever you are, whenever you want.
The heart of the Micro Cube RX lies in the four custom designed 4-inch speakers, which are powered by a stereo pair of 2.5-watt amplifiers for maximum efficiency, to guarantee clean and clear tones every time. Not only that, but thanks to the stereo power you are guaranteed an immersive aural experience with deep, resonant bass, chunky mids and sweet highs.
Roland’s COSM Technology
Roland has included eight of their top COSM amp models in the RX, with a dazzling array of controls to tweak and perfect your tone. Along the top of the RX there are eight amp types to choose from, including: Acoustic SIM, JC Clean, Black Panel, Brit Combo, Classic Stack, Metal, R-Fier Stack, Mic – each one offering closely designed amp models that represent classic and modern favourites for quick and efficient tone shaping.
The Micro Cube RX is home to six powerful digital effects that are controlled via two pots. The first controls Chorus, Flanger, Phaser, and Tremolo; the second controls Delay and Reverb. Depending on how you attenuate the controls depends on which effect is activated, and how saturated the effect is. As well effects, Roland has included a dynamic three-band EQ with Bass, Middle and Treble controls, enabling you to scoop and shape your tone to your heart’s content.
Rhythm Guide and Chromatic Tuner
The metronome is a music-student’s best friend, but a repetitive beep can grate after a while. That’s where the Micro Cube RX’s Rhythm Guide comes in handy. It’s like having a drummer inside your amp. Choose from an assortment of patterns to practice with. Improve your timing while having a more enjoyable musical experience, or just have fun jamming along to the beats. The built-in chromatic tuner ensures that you will remain in tune and ready to rock every time.
The Micro Cube RX’s line input lets you plug in a guitar, bass, or microphone. In addition, the stereo AUX input accepts input from an iPod, a CD player, or musical instrument so you can blend its signal with your own. The Phones/Recording output serves two purposes: Plug in a set of headphones and enjoy private practice with lush, stereo sound, or plug directly into a stereo mixer or recording device for accurate signal transfer directly from the Micro Cube RX.
