Super Cubes

The shape of Combos to come!

The Roland Cube range has for some time been the best selling series of combo amplifiers in the world. They pioneered the compact approach — a big sound in a neat highly portable package with all the facilities (Line Out socket, headphone socket, powerful active Eq and so on] required for stage, studio and practice use.

The Cube range has been regularly expanded and updated. But now there's a completely new generation of Cube amplifiers that surpass even the existing range. They're called the Super Cubes.

Put a Super Cube next to any existing amplifier of similar wattage — even a standard Cube — and you're likely to be impressed by the extra volume and punch the new models give. Newly developed loudspeakers have unusually long sustain characteristics and high volume performance.

Powerful overdrive circuits give a rich, heavy sound at any volume level. There is three band Equalisation and a new reverberation system gives even more versatility. Super Cubes can of course be stacked or used with additional speakers. Signal to noise ratio is excellent making Super Cubes unrivalled for recording work. The new models come in 40 watt, 60 watt and 100 watt versions and could be used either for guitar or keyboards. Whether you're talking about money or weight they offer more sound to the pound than anything on the market.

A compact, sophisticated and responsive combo like the Super Cube is the ideal amplifier for today's incisive bass techniques. For the first time there's a full range of bass units in the Cube series giving 40 watt, 60 watt and 100 watt outputs.

Super Cube Bass amplifiers use the bass reflex system to provide unrivalled bottom end response from compact, manageable cabinets. There's active cut and boost on treble, mid, and bass and a special 'colour' control alters the overall frequency characteristics of the amp. Using this it is possible to select either a bright, attacking sound or a deeper, richer one. Two Main Out/Pre In jacks are provided.

Super Cubes — the best Cubes ever, are comparable in price with the standard Cube series. This is because they're assembled in England eliminating transport overheads. Stringent quality control is maintained and the services of a very famous British loudspeaker manufacturer have been retained to supply speakers which can take the new, high-volume Super-Cube output and carry on sounding good year after year.
