Details

The new Blues Cube Artist by Roland, pushes the boundaries of traditional 1 x 12 combo guitar amplifiers further than ever before. By employing Roland's unique Tube Logic design, the inner circuitry perfectly recreates the behaviour of a tweed-era tube amp, from guitar input to speaker output.

Roland's Tube Logic circuitry has evolved significantly since the first-generation Blues Cube Artist models of the '90s. The amp design team have gone to incredible length to accurately model the highly enigmatic nature of tube amplifiers. There are two independent channels on offer: Clean and Crunch.

The Clean channel is perfect for dialling in smooth tones that are suited to a wide range of playing styles. Control comes in the stripped-back form of a single Volume knob, with Boost and Tone switches to give your tone that extra degree of bite and articulation.

The Crunch channel also has a Volume knob with accompanying Boost and Treble switches. However, there is also a Gain knob, which allows you to dial in that extra bit of aggression to create a raw edge to your signal. The Dual Tone button allows you to create your own unique blend of both Clean and Crunch to stunning effect, which is particularly useful for solo performers who want to play a choppy rhythm with an underlying clean or hot lead tone.

The Effects section is home to both the Tremolo and Reverb effects, which can be used on both the Clean and Crunch. The Tap button allows you to dial in the timing of the Tremolo effect, whilst the Reverb breathes space into your sound. The three-band EQ section allows you to mould your signal to suit your playing style, musical style, or playing environment. When you're performing in a smaller environment, the Presence knob allows you to dial in a greater sense of space, whilst the Master Volume control controls the overall output signal level.

The Blues Cube Artist packs a powerful punch for an amp of such small proportions. You can take this little beauty straight to the stage, as it is equipped with 80-watts of power, which is projected sweetly through the custom 12-inch speaker. Recognising that you may not always want to crank up the volume but still want to withdraw rich overdriven tube tones, there is a four-way power control that allows you to adjust the output power to 0.5 W, 15 W, 45 W - perfect for practising at home, teaching, studio recording and smaller gigs.

With regard to external effects pedals you have two choices with the Roland Blues Cube Artist. You can go directly through the High or Low inputs, or make use of the EFX Loop Send and Return connections, so effectively driving what would be the pre-amp tubes or bypassing them and driving the power-amp tubes instead.

Along the rear panel there are additional jacks for attaching an optional footswitch (sold separately) such as a GA-FC Foot Controller, which enables remote switching for channel selection, Dual Tone mode and on/off for the built-in tremolo/reverb and effects loop. Not only that but the USB jack means that you can record your amp's tones directly into a computer and DAW of your choosing.

The versatility, power and control offered by the Blues Cube Artist are nothing short of amazing. The incredibly clever Tube Logic design highlights why Roland is so revered across the industry. The tones are sublime, offering tube response without a tube to be found. The clever open-back design creates a hugely responsive sound. If you're an amateur who is looking for an awesome practise amp then you want be disappointed. If you're a professional who is looking for a powerful performing partner without the hassle of maintaining tubes, then you'll fall in love with the Blues Cube Artist.
