COSM definedComposite Object Sound Modelling (COSM) is Roland's innovative and powerful sound-modeling technology. COSM analyses the many factors that make up the original sound, such as the electrical and physical characteristics of the original, and then produces a digital model that can reproduce the same sound. In designing the CUBE-XL series, Roland meticulously analysed and modelled an array of world-class amps and effects to bring you the versatile and authentic tone palette that these amps provide. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Roland products.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Do not underestimate this amp. It is great!"
Sound: I'm really glad I got this amp. It sounds great, loud or quiet. The effects are just the best! Boss has taken their best effects and built them into this amp. Feature: Love the 80 second looper! Also love the 1/8 input jack on the back, plug in the ipod and jam. More footswitch jacks than on previous models. The reverb and delay are independent, also an improvement over previous models.The R-FIER setting just rocks. Also has a headphone out jack. Ease of Use: The only learning curve involves programing the solo button and using the looper. I think both are easier with a footswitch. Quality: Built like a tank. Great for practice but I fully suspect I could take this out and jam with it as well. It gets pretty loud. Value: I think this is a great deal. I checked the internet and Zzounds had the best price. Manufacturer Support: have not delt with them lately. The Wow Factor: My teacher has a a cube 30 and a cube 60. I had seen the amp before and liked it. The new XL series of cube amps is greatly improved over the last. More features. Overall: This is perfect for my practice needs and light jamming. I have a bigger amp if needed, but I've never needed it. The big amp is TOO big, it's just for recording. This amp is perfect.
Style of Music: Jazz, Rock, World.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Unbelievable amp."
Sound: Really great modeling amp, Can reproduce nearly any sound you can imagine. The only reason it doesn't get a 10 is because, well, nothing sounds like true tubes. But this comes real close! This thing can get loud, But I wouldn't imagine playing a gig with it, Unless mic'd. One mistake you don't want to make is to compare this to the "Other" brands of modelling amps out there. Roland really made something special here, the COSM technology they used makes a huge statement, and even bigger sound. The amp models are really amazing, Each one is voiced really well, and respond great to pedals, especially my Green Screamer TS808 clone. You can really hear, and feel the difference in the higher-gain amp models. Each is truly different than the others, And adding a distortion/overdrive pedals to the cleaner amps is just awesome. All the effects are really well done, And the 3-band EQ is surprisingly responsive, But does well to have your own multi-band EQ to back it up. Feature: The features really are the COSM models. The difference in sound with just a switch of a knob really will surprise you. It has a lot of effects on board, such as the Flanger, Chorus, Spring & Plate reverb, Delay, and my favorite one, the Looper. You can record up to 80 seconds of playing, and hit a button to play it back, then with another press of a button, Dub over it as many times as you want. All while never touching anything but the amp itself, or the footswitch (sold separately). There are 3 different channels One clean, Voiced from a Roland Jazz Chorus model. This probably is the best model on the entire amp, which is understandable since it IS a Roland. The Lead Channels - Here is where the majority of your Amp-Models are. I'd hate to call this the "Dirty" Channel, because of the great acoustic simulator here. And then there is the Solo channel. Press a button on the amp, Or your footswitch and it will save and store all the current settings of your amp, EQ, effects, all of it. You then can switch off of it, Maybe record a bit on the looper, hit your solo button again, and have a guitar-duet all by your lonesome. Ease of Use: It is truly easy to use, But the learning curve for the effects and getting your perfect sound out of each model can take some time. Quality: Really well made, I can't see anything breaking on this without extreme abuse. Tough screen in front of the speaker, The knobs feel really solid, no play in it. Value: The value you are getting for this thing is insane, There are things out there that WILL sound better, but will be nowhere near the price of this. This is the perfect amp for the beginning musician, The perfect bedroom amp. I wish I had this when I first started. Manufacturer Support: Neutral response, Haven't made any contact with the company. The Wow Factor: This thing looks great, It feels like a tank. It make look small, but it has serious heft, Wasn't made to last a year and then break. This things in it for the long haul. Overall: Overall for what you're paying, and what you're getting, I can't imagine buying any other amp under 600 dollars. This just does it all, and for such a cheap price. It is made well, and performs beyond expectations. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great, cheap amp.
