Warm, bouncy, responsive, dynamic, and elastic- these are all terms that guitarists use to describe their favourite tube amps. Thanks to its Tube Logic design, all these words can be described to the iconic Blues Cube Artist as well. Dramatically evolved from the original ‘90s model, today’s design accurately provided the complex and highly interactive behaviour of the classic in meticulous detail. Great feel, distortion control, bloom, sparkle, power supply, and more – everything that players love about a finely tuned vintage tube amp is present in an abundance with Blues Cube.
Ready for live playing, this combo comes equipped with 80 Watts of power, plus a custom 12-inch speaker that has been specifically designed for maximum tonal response. Every tube amp player knows that you really need to turn up the volume and push the output tubes to get the amplifier to sing at its best. Delivering the complex distortion of output tubes and their interaction with the output transformer, the Blues Cube truly outshines the rest.
The Blues Cube Artist features two independent channels. One has been voiced for cleaner tones, whilst the other is for crunch. Designed on each channel are boost and tone switches that allow you to shape your sound to suit your style. The clean channel’s single volume control dials in natural tube fullness and bite whilst the volume is cranked, while the crunch channel’s variable gain provides a range of grit flavours from mild to aggressive.
With the press of a switch, the unique Dual Tone mode lets you blend both channels together for an endless array of rich tones. And just like a vintage tube amp, the Blues Cube loves stompboxes, allowing you to further shape your personal sound by hitting the amp's front end with your favourite gain pedals.
With its modern approach, the Blues Cube eliminates two of the biggest drawbacks found in all tube amps powerful enough for stage playing. The original were extremely heavy, prone to vibration damage, and require frequent tube replacement and other costly maintenance to keep them going strong. This modern remake is totally maintenance-free and has been strategically designed in order to reduce weight in every area that doesn’t affect the tone. Enjoy a great tube sound at every gig, but with much easier load-in and no actual tubes to worry about.
