The Roland CUBE-80XL delivers 80 screaming watts of power through its 12" high-performance custom speaker. There are discrete, footswitchable* channels -- JC Clean and Lead -- with Solo settings for each. Twelve COSM amp models are onboard, including Extreme, plus eight effects to choose from, including the Heavy Octave and COSM vintage Spring Reverb, plus an 80-second Phrase Looper. A 3-band EQ with Presence control is provided for detailing your sound.

*Hands-free channel switching is available with footswitch (Boss FS series, sold separately).

Triple-Channel Flexibility

Switch instantly between Lead, JC Clean, and Solo channels. When it's time to shine onstage, activate the Solo mode -- complete with dedicated volume knob and memory for storing your favourite sound setups for the Lead and JC Clean channels. Channels can be selected manually from the control panel or via footswitch (optional).

More, More, More

With 12 COSM amp models onboard, an expanded EFX section, 80 roof-raising watts of power, and a 12" high-performance speaker, this amp is ready for any stage, any gig, and practically any musical environment.

Tone Control

The CUBE-80XL offers some key additions for shaping and detailing your sound.

Also unique to the CUBE-80XL is an External Speaker output, should you want to enlarge your setup with an optional expansion cabinet.

COSM Defined

Composite Object Sound Modelling (COSM) is Roland's innovative and powerful sound-modelling 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.

4.5 out of 5 (21 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "AWESOME AMP FOR JAZZ!"
Sound: This is a great sounding solid state amp. It emulates the sound of the JC120 fairly well. I would say this sounds more like a poor mans Polytone. This thing is great for Jazz. Obviously it does other stuff with the other amp emulations. But this amp really excels in the jazz sound. You can dial great jazz tones going from warm dark and fat like Wes or Jim Hall or brighter more "modern" sounds like Pat Metheny and everything in between. Great jazz tones to be had from either the JC120 side or the fender black panel. Nice blues tone can be attained on the JC120 side or the Tweed emulator. Has an ok spring reverb and a nice plate reverb. 3 Band EQ and a presence control. I find the amp rather warm(when dialed in accordningly) for a solid state. Not tube warm but warmer than a lot of other SS amps out there. Sounds great with my Peerless Monarch with set humbucker and with my Gretsch G100CE with floating Benedetto S6 pickup. Feature: This amp honestly has way more stuff than I will ever use. But the price is right and can get even better if you search around for a lower price because these cats will not just matcht he price they will BEAT the price! Lots of emulators of various amps. The 80 second looper is a fun thing to play with but I would recomend getting the foot control if you want to do much more than just play with it. Does a lot of things and create a variety of sounds from metal to jazz and back. Really a nice jazz amp. Poor mans Polytone right here. So if you are on a budget or the payment plan ZZ offers appeals to you this amp is where its at for a reasonably priced solid state jazz amp. Ease of Use: Great jazz amp! Quality: Top notch construction all around. I would not expect less from Roland. Value: Great jazz amp for a younger cat just getting their stuff together. Certainly loud enough to gig with and is very affordable and sounds great. Not tube warm...but warm when you dial it in. The 12" speaker helps with this as well. Great amp. Manufacturer Support: Also Roland has great customer support. I only called to ask some questions PRIOR to purchasing and they were very helpful. The Wow Factor: It looks like a standard issue amp. Its black its got a honeycomb type grille cover...Who cares it sounds good. Overall: I will keep this until I am in a position to afford one of the high end boutique amps like Jazzkap or Henriksen. But this amp still sounds great and could last someone a life time. Its built like a tank but its fairly light.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great Things Do Come In Small Packages"
Sound: Great volume and tone qualities. Very expressive and complimentary to all style's of music. I am using a Fender Standard Telecaster playing Country Gospel and Southern Gospel and I wanted a clean sounding amp as I do not use Distortions and the Cube amps were highly recommended. The JC Clean channel is very clean and punchy and activating the Bright Switch produces clean and clear highs. The Lead channel is very versatile offering an array of amp models and effects. I really enjoy the Fender model Amps but am now finding useage for the Vox and the more Distorted Amps as well. Feature: Wonderful effects which are very simple to use. Effects may be activated by hand or an optional foot switch. The Delay can also be set by the Tap Switch. The Looper on the Cube 80 XL now has been increased to 80 seconds and allows for 2 passes of recording. The Solo Switch allows for saving set up selections for both the Clean & the Lead Channels making 4 variations of tones and effects possible. There are a variety of outs to cover both Live and Recording needs. I have used the Line Out to connect to the sound system and I found it to be very quiet. The AUX In is a very nice and convenient feature that allows you to connect an MP3, Ipod, CD Player, or Rhythm Machine for playback. Ease of Use: The features on this amp are very easy to use and set up. I took it out of the box, plugged it up, plugged in the Guitar and started playing. Within minutes I had dialed in my settings of Effects and Tones. The Manual is very user friendly. Quality: This amp is built very well. The corners are very well protected. The Speaker is very well protected by the front grille. Everything is laid out in an easy to use order and is easily accessible. The Amp is very compact and light but very powerful for its size. Value: A professional quality product of high standards for an extremely reasonable price. Manufacturer Support: I have not had a need for customer support. The Wow Factor: A very simple design yet very appealing. Overall: I have found this Amp to meet every need that I have for Practice, performing Live, and even Recording applications. I have been so impressed that I plan to purchase a second.
