New CUBE, new attitude
The latest addition to the top-selling CUBE amp family (with over a million sold) is the CUBE-XL series. The CUBE-40XL is compact enough to grab and go, yet powerful enough for live and studio work.
The CUBE-40XL provides 40 watts of power through a 10" high-performance custom speaker. There are discrete, footswitchable* channels — JC Clean and Lead — with Solo settings for each. Ten COSM amp models are onboard, including the new Extreme setting, and eight effects to choose from, including the new Heavy Octave and COSM vintage Spring Reverb, plus an 80-second Phrase Looper.

EFX and Looper
High-quality Roland/Boss effects are built into the CUBE-40XL. Choose from a variety of reverbs, delays, and more, plus the new Heavy Octave for massive bottom end, and activate the Power Squeezer for achieving full-gain tone at low volumes. Also onboard is a sound-on-sound Looper for creating impressive layers of sound and dazzling solos on the spot. Up to 80 seconds of audio can be captured and looped.
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.
