Roland Launches "One in a Million" Cube Amp Contest

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 -
CUBE Street
Micro CUBE
Micro CUBE-R
Micro CUBE-W
Mobile CUBE
...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 like.

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 amps.

“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 only.
