The Roland Micro Cube RX Bass Guitar Combo Amplifier is a powerful little beast that delivers far more than its size may suggest. Packed with four custom-designed speakers that are powered by a carefully designed stereo amplifier circuit, the output of the RX Bass is a force to be reckoned with. On top of that, you get Roland’s customary COSM amp modelling technology thrown into the mix, as well as five incredible digital effects, and a versatile three-band EQ. Everything is contained within a solid chassis with side reinforcements, and a metal grille to protect the speakers, ensuring that no matter where your music takes you, the RX Bass can take anything you can throw at it.
The tonal energy of the Micro Cube RX Bass bursts forth from four custom designed 4-inch speakers, which are powered by a stereo pair of 2.5-watt amplifiers for maximum efficiency. The dual amplifier partnership guarantees a smooth output at any volume level, and creates an enveloping sound that truly brings your playing to life.
Roland’s COSM Technology
Roland has included a selection of eight of their top COSM technology amp models, in order to give you access to a tonal universe to explore freely. Along the top of the RX Bass there are eight amp types to choose from, including: Octave Bass, Super Flat, Flip Top, B Man, Bass360, Session, Concert 810, Mic – each one offering carefully designed amp models that represent classic and modern favourites for quick and efficient tone shaping. Simply turn the pot to your desired model, and you instantly plug into a unique and tonally rich model that is desperate for your attention.
The Micro Cube RX Bass is home to five powerful digital effects that are controlled via two pots. The first controls Chorus, Flanger, and T-Wah; the second controls Delay and Reverb. Depending on how you attenuate the controls determines 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. The addition of a compressor button allows you to tighten up the low-end response for a driving attack, or simply let it all hang out for a deep low-end swell.
Rhythm Guide and Chromatic Tuner
The metronome is a musician’s best friend, but a repetitive beep can grate after a while. That’s where the Micro Cube RX Bass’ Rhythm Guide comes in handy. It’s like having a drummer inside your amp, with pre-loaded patterns to choose from. Improve your timing while having a more enjoyable musical experience, or just have fun jamming along to the beats to improvisational skills. The built-in chromatic tuner ensures that you will remain in tune and ready to rock every time.
The Micro Cube RX Bass is equipped with a line input to plug your guitar, bass or mic into, as well as a stereo AUX input that allows you to connect your music players of choice, i.e. iPod, MP3, CD player, or even another 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 Roland Micro Cube RX Bass Guitar Amplifier.
The RX Bass can be powered using the AC 9V adaptor and power cable (both included) when you have access to a mains power supply. For all other times – on the road, on the tour bus, at the venue, in the park, wherever! – you can simply slot in 6 x AA batteries, and you’re good to go for 11 continuous hours (more than enough time to wow the gathering crowd). And when you want to head home again, simply throw the RX Bass over your shoulder using the strap provided, and you’re good to go.
