(Dave Molter | Posted 2011-06-07)
Roland is now shipping the new CUBE-XL Bass Amplifier series, a significant update to the bass amp segment of the million-selling CUBE amplifier family.
The three models in the CUBE-XL Bass Amplifier series—the CUBE-20XL BASS, CUBE-60XL BASS, and CUBE-120XL BASS—range in power from 20 to 120 watts, so there’s an amp to meet the needs of everyone from bedroom jammers to gigging professionals. Features include a high-performance DSP engine for superb tone, multiple COSM® amp models (including the new Super Low amp on the CUBE-120XL BASS and CUBE-60XL BASS), updated effects (including the new Drive and Poly Octave), onboard phrase looping (CUBE-120XL BASS and CUBE-60XL BASS), and Power Squeezer (CUBE-60XL BASS and CUBE-20XL BASS) and SOLO functions.
Built with premium, durable components, the CUBE-XL BASS amplifiers are ready for the long haul. Notable construction features include high-grade plywood cabinets, full-length corner guards, and metal grilles for the ultimate speaker protection. Additionally, the amps are equipped with custom-designed speakers (including two-way coaxial speakers on the CUBE-120XL BASS and CUBE-60XL BASS) and custom flared ports (CUBE-120XL BASS and CUBE-60XL BASS - pictured) for a tight, punchy sound and superior deep bass performance.
