The Roland Blues Cube Hot "British EL84 Modified" Guitar Combo Amplifier is a special edition model that gives you the traditional voice of a classic British amp with EL84 tubes. The distinctive black look gives the amp a serious rock edge, and taking to the stage with this little powerhouse is done with effortless style.
Roland's Tube logic
The Roland Blues Cube Hot "British EL84 Modified" Guitar Combo Amplifier produces the Brit Combo tones made famous by many pioneering rock bands from the early '60s, which is still coveted by many modern players. The warm, bouncy response of a tube amp is recreated beautifully thanks to some very clever built-in technology. Everything from sweet clean chime at lower volumes to creamy overdrive at higher volumes is easily achieved by the Blues Cube Hot, giving you everything you need to cover all bases, no matter what genre you play.
To ensure that you are afforded immaculate response at any volume level, the amplifier is equipped with a four-way power control that is adjustable between: 0.5W; 5W; 15W; and Max. Whether you're practising at home, recording in the studio, jamming with friends, or hitting the big stage, you can push the amp to deliver rich tones every time.
The Volume control takes you from sparkling cleans to gritty overdrive when pushed, whilst the Boost switch injects more gain and thickness, whilst the Tone switch retains a shining high frequency character. Tempering the signal and shaping it to your preferred sound can be done using the three-band EQ. The built-in reverb effect creates the space you need in smaller venues, but don't let that stop you from getting outboard effects involved - the Blues Cube Hot plays very well with others.
As well as the built-in controls, the Roland Blues Cube Hot features a footswitch jack for remote switching of Boost and Tone functions. Another area the Roland Blues Cube Hot Guitar Combo Amplifier excels is in its addition of a USB jack. This means you can capture all the hot, rich tones directly into your favourite digital audio software with nothing getting in the way and diminishing the tone.
The Roland Blues Cube Hot "British EL84 Modified" Guitar Combo Amplifier gives you incredible valve power and tone mixed with functionality, portability, stage and studio friendly connectivity, all without the weight of a tube amp to spare your back loading in and out of gigs.
