Roland CUBE-80GX Guitar Combo Amplifier

Building on the top-level tone and rock-solid reliability that's made the CUBE name famous, the Roland CUBE-GX series turns up the heat with even more versatile operation and connectivity for Apple's iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The flagship CUBE-80GX packs a punch with 80 big watts of power and a custom-designed 12-inch speaker, delivering first-class performance in a compact amp that's ready for the stage. 11 COSM(R) amp types and three independent channels--including a fully programmable SOLO channel--put a huge range of tones at your command, with remote control of channel switching, effects, and more via the optional GA-FC Foot Controller. i-CUBE LINK takes practice and mobile recording to a greater level, providing a simple onboard audio interface for working with music apps on your favorite iOS devices.

Gig-Ready Dynamo

Equipped with 80 watts of power and a custom-designed 12-inch speaker, the CUBE-80GX is a pro-level combo amp for stage and studio, with rich and dynamic sound, integrated effects, and plenty of volume. For recording sessions or more sound coverage in larger venues, use the convenient LINE OUT and/or RECORDING OUT jacks to send mix-ready, studio-quality tones with COSM speaker modeling directly to the mixing board. The RECORDING OUT jack doubles as a PHONES jack and mutes the onboard speaker, perfect for silent practice at home or backstage. Built with legendary CUBE construction standards for rock-solid reliability, the CUBE-80GX is compact, easy to transport, and prepared to withstand the rigors of the road.

COSM Amps and Three Independent Channels

The CUBE-80GX features a wide range of COSM amp types and three independent channels for maximum tonal versatility. The JC CLEAN channel provides the renowned clean tone of Roland's famous JC-120, while the LEAD channel offers ten different amp choices, from blackface clean to Brit overdrive to the original EXTREME amp for massive, high-gain metal riffs. A third SOLO channel is completely programmable, allowing you to store all settings from either the JC CLEAN or LEAD channel, along with EQ and effects.

Top Quality FX and More

With three independent, easy-to-use effects sections, the CUBE-80GX puts a full arsenal of top guitar processing under your control. The EFX section offers five different stompbox-type effects, while the dedicated DELAY section has two different delay types and a TAP button for quickly setting delay times. REVERB is included as well, with your choice of vintage spring emulation or a studio-style plate. The CUBE-80GX also features a chromatic/manual tuner, built right into the amp!

Powerful Performance Control

The optional GA-FC Foot Controller is the perfect partner for the CUBE-80GX, with six footswitches for selecting amp channels and turning effect sections on/off. It's also equipped with two expression pedal jacks for foot control of input and master volumes. Setup time is lightning fast--the GA-FC requires no AC power adapter, and connects easily via its included stereo 1/4-inch cable. Remote channel switching on the CUBE-80GX is also possible with optional BOSS FS-5U or FS-6 footswitches.

i-CUBE Link: Built-In Interface for iOS Devices

Onboard the CUBE-80GX is Roland's innovative i-CUBE LINK interface, which lets you integrate with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch using a real guitar amp with great tone. Unlike typical bulky and inconvenient iOS guitar interfaces, i-CUBE LINK connects to your device's audio jack quickly and simply with the included cable, providing two-way communication with your favorite music apps. With i-CUBE LINK, you can play along with music tracks and send studio-quality COSM guitar tones with effects straight into the recording app of your choice. The versatile i-CUBE LINK jack can also be used as a simple stereo input, enabling you to plug in nearly any music player or audio device and play it through the CUBE-80GX.

CUBE JAM APP: Powerful, Fun, and Free!

Available for free from the App Store, the Roland CUBE JAM app turns your iOS device into a fun command center for jamming, recording, and learning. Play back commercial songs and minus-one tracks through the CUBE-80GX via i-CUBE LINK and riff along for hours with the amp's great COSM tones. CUBE JAM also records audio through the i-CUBE LINK connection, letting you capture your jams with a single touch. After recording, you can adjust the volume of your guitar and backing music independently in the app, then export your mix to a 16-bit, 44.1 kHz WAV file. CUBE JAM also includes powerful tools for music practice, including independent speed and pitch adjustment of audio playback, Center Cancel to remove solos and create your own jam tracks, and more.

Features:

- 80-watt guitar amp with custom-designed 12-inch speaker
- Three channels: JC CLEAN, LEAD (with 10 different COSM amp types), and SOLO
- SOLO channel is fully programmable, allowing you to save and recall amp type plus EQ and effects settings
- Three independent effects sections: EFX (five types), DELAY with tap tempo, and REVERB
- Hands-free channel switching, effects on/off, and more via GA-FC Foot Controller (sold separately)
- i-CUBE LINK jack provides simple audio interfacing with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (interface cable included)

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (3 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Compact, versatile amp"
Overall: I'm getting old and I was looking for a light amp I could carry. Wanted to be able to get ample volume, pipe it through the PA if needed, and of course it needed to sound good. Even though I'm a die hard 'tube man', I thought I'd give this Cube 80GX a try. I like what I heard on my gig, and it will become one of my regular amps for rehearsals and small gigs. I had to special order a cover from a 3rd party vendor (because Roland doesn't make a cover for this), and I would recommenced doing the same. The pedal that controls all the effects, reverb and channel switching is a little pricey, but I went ahead and bought it anyway. I plan on keeping this amp so I wanted the pedal and the cover. This amp gets LOUD. You can play anywhere with it. The tone is great and you can get decent tube tone simulations out of it. As with all solid state amps, you can't 'push it' to the top of it's power rating.... you have to always work within the comfort level of the amp, and then you'll get good tones. (Tube amps can be pushed over the edge and still sound good. Can't do that with solid state amps). I have a Roland mini for years and always liked it. (It sits under my desk for personal rehearsal work). Because of this, I gave the Roland Cube 80GX a try. I like it, and I'm sure you will too! It's a "pro amp".... not some cheap 'wanna-be' amp So you can haul this thing out to a gig and be proud of what you're playing through.

Sound: In a church setting the music ranges from hard overdriven to sweeping ambient effects and this amp carries these sounds very well. This amp will also do my Tele justice on country music, or produce a nice dirty blues sound on my Strat. (Sorry, can't testify to anything with humbuckers). I have also had to run an acoustic through it a couple of times, and with just a little quick tweaking it got a really nice sound out of my Taylor. Not saying to buy it for an acoustic rig, but in a pinch, it works well. Also, if you need more sound than the 80 watts produces, (and it's a lot), the line out feature is a plus. I prefer to mic an amp when running to a board, but I've used the line out and it's a great option- one that a lot of amps don't offer. Feature: I like the Aux input because I like to play along with backing tracks when I'm just having fun. As far as least useful, for me it would be some of the amp models- but then that's just user preference. Ease of Use: Not as difficult as it might look at first- all of the knobs can be a little off-putting until you start working with it. Quality: Very solid construction. In my experience Roland doesn't build junk. Value: Well worth the price. Manufacturer Support: Don't know about manufacturer support, but as far as Zzounds is concerned, the first amp that arrived was damaged. I took all kinds of pictures to document thinking I'd have to "prove my case" with support. It was not an issue. There were no questions asked, I was quickly emailed a shipping label, and 3 days after dropping it off at UPS my new undamaged amp arrived. Very happy with their customer service. The Wow Factor: Sound. I almost went with a tube amp before this purchase. Do not regret the decision. Overall: I have had this amp for 2-3 months and have used it both indoors and outdoors. I am VERY happy with the sound this amp produces; both clean and through effects pedals. I must admit I haven't done much with the onboard effects- I generally stick with the JC Clean setting with a little reverb and let my pedals do the rest. What "testing" I have done however leads me to believe it will do whatever you need, and do it well.
Style of Music: Christian, country, blues.
