Roland Launches "One in a Million" Cube Amp Contest
(ShackMan | Posted 2009-07-27)
Los Angeles, CA, July 15, 2009 — To commemorate a million CUBE
amplifiers sold, Roland U.S. has launched a new contest where
enthusiasts of the legendary CUBE-Series can win one of every CUBE
amplifier currently being made.
Every. Single. One. Seriously.
That means you'll get a -
Micro CUBE RX
Micro CUBE BASS-RX
...and I'm not even done listing yet
How's that for having a stocked studio? And if you're still asking, "Well, why would I care about winning THAT prize?" I suggest you take a second listen to Frank Gambale, Adrian Belew, Porcupine Tree, David Crowder Band, RZA, Collective Soul, Shiny Toy Guns, Weird "Al" Yankovic and his Band, pianist Brian Culbertson, Asia, John Oates and Jed Leiber, and George Duke, ALL of whom rely on Roland's Cube amplifiers to sculpt and shape their sound into the crisp and clean tone they crave.
CUBE amplifiers are known for packing a sonic punch in a portable
package, and now Roland wants to know how players use their CUBE. This can
be any Roland CUBE-Series amplifier, from the original CUBE-40, to the
newest member of the CUBE family, the CUBE-80X. To enter, all
contestants have to do is register online and upload a photo of them
and their CUBE. Contestants can register as many photos as they would
Photos are encouraged to be as innovative and creative as possible,
since the photos with the most interesting concepts will win. First,
second, and third place winners will be selected by a panel of judges
at Roland. First place will win one of every CUBE amplifier Roland
currently manufactures, 14 in total. Second place will have a choice
of five CUBE amps, and third place will have a choice of three CUBE
“The CUBE-Series has been the workhorse of guitar amps for decades,”
says Peter Swiadon, Product Marketing Manager. “We are excited to have
a contest to celebrate the many ways in which our customers use their
CUBE amplifiers. With over a million sold, we’re sure there will be a
lot of diversity.”
Entries for the “One in a Million” CUBE amplifier contest will be
taken from July 15th - September 30th. Contest is for U.S. residents
