Roland have launched 5 new amps for guitarists, including 4 additions to the Cube family.

The AC-40 is just the thing for singer/songwriters and gigging guitarists, providing versatility and high-quality acoustic amplification.

The latest amp in Roland's Acoustic Chorus family, the AC-40 is performance-ready and produces a clean, loud and natural sound with anti-feedback settings for your acoustic instrument. Add in the flexibility of two independent channels, each with its own 3-band EQ, and you have an amp that's ideal for intimate live performances.

It's not only the AC40's big sound that's surprising considering it's size, there are a bunch of performance extras, too. Roland's high-quality effects are present, including digital reverb and chorus. Connect an external music player, practice with headphones, or connect the amp to PA systems with the Line Out jack for playing larger venues.

Further expanding the highly regarded Cube range, Roland are adding an incredible 4 amps to the family. First up, the Cube-20GX, Cube-40GX and Cube-80GX.

All feature three channels: JC CLEAN, LEAD and a fully programmable SOLO channel. The three independent effects sections feature Delay, Reverb and 5 different types of EFX. Switch channels hands-free using a footswitch, configure settings with a 3-band EQ and stay in tune with the built-in chromatic/manual tuner.

Cube-20GX is perfect for practice as it features a recording out/phones jack so you can practice without disturbance and record your progress. When you're ready to explore your sound further, the Cube-40GX and -80GX both have 10 different COSM types to play with.

The latest additions to the Cube clan connect seamlessly with your iOS device using the i-CUBE LINK jack. For more functionality, you can download Roland's free CUBE JAM app, letting you record along with current songs, playback, adjust volume, centre cancel and create your own jams.

Although it's size is miniature, the new Micro Cube GX Guitar Amplifier should make a big impact of guitarists who need killer tone on-the-go.

8 COSM amp tones, including the ultra-heavy EXTREME amp, 8 DSP effects, a memory function and all the connectivity of the i-CUBE LINK interface are packed in to the tiny yet tough Micro Cube GX.

Powered by AC adaptor or battery for up to 25 hours, this little legend improves on on the most popular battery-powered amp of all time, letting you jam anywhere with world-class tone and EFX. The Micro Cube GX will be available in Black, White or Red.
