Product Description

With over one million CUBE amps sold and going strong, Roland continues to push the envelope with innovative amp technology and design. The latest addition to the top-selling CUBE amp family is the CUBE-XL series. Small and lethal, the 20XL is an affordable yet powerful new member of the XL family. The CUBE-20XL delivers 20 watts of output through a high-performance 8" custom speaker. Its compact size is perfect for at-home practice and band rehearsals alike, and is conveniently portable. There are two discrete channels, JC Clean and Lead, plus Solo mode for extra boost. Six BOSS Lead types are provided, including the new Extreme. Nine effects are onboard, including Heavy Octave, COSM® vintage Spring Reverb, and Power Squeezer for full gain at low volume. An Aux Input allows portable music players to be connected for jam-along fun, while the onboard Tuning Fork lets you tune your guitar without unplugging.

I'm not a novice on music and I knew Roland products were very good design and sound quality on mid and small size amps (from my bass-playing days).

I was on deployment and needed a guitar amp that had some power and some sound shaping capability. I'm not a novice on music and I knew Roland products were very good design and sound quality on mid and small size amps (from my bass-playing days).

It came new in the box with all documentation. There are no accessories, since it's a combo (self-contained) amp.

I immediately plugged it in and fried it on bloody 220 VAC (Iraq voltage) idiot move. LoL . After getting it repaired, I plugged in my brand-new Ibanez Edge-3 series guitar and BLEW THE DOORS OFF! It has two settings, clean and lead. Both sounds are awesome. Effects included are Flanger , Chorus, reverb , delay, and about 4 or 5 distortion settings. No joke, I couldn't turn it up more than halfway! THIS THING WAS ROCKING THE HOUSE!~

I played parties and performed twice in front of 300 or so people with my guitar and just this amp.

I could achieve THE EXACT SOUND of Dio (Holy Diver) or Judas Priest (Vengeance, British Steel) with EASE! I'm not kidding this thing sounds GREAT! On the clean settings it sounded better than my room mates acoustic. LoL

Playing rock , blues , neo-classical , clean , distortion, sounded superb. Also the built in tuner (LED indicator) came in handy when my real tuner crapped out on me. I was very pleased with the ext input (laptop or iPod) and the headphone jack (1/4 inch) When I played movies or my laptop thru this thing it was Loud and Clear as a BELL. Just be careful if you run something thru it because there's no INPUT volume on that plug.

Great FREQ response , power , and clarity. Perfect for practicing or performances in front of small audiences. You're not gonna gig with this thing. Trust me. For the bed room, or choir practice, this amp will work. Just be careful because it's VERY POWERFUL AND LOUD for it's relatively small size.

I love it.

If you are looking for a solid, built-like-a-tank amp with working, quality built-in effects, this is the best bang for the buck. Hands down. I tested Vox, Orange, Marshall (no effects, but truly an American standard), Fender...everything I could get my paws on. I am a professional keyboardist, so Roland isn't a new thing for me. It was the most economical of the narrowed down search, consisting of Vox and Orange. Both Vox and Orange were admirable...especially in the effects department. If you are reading this review, you are no different than myself...you study reviews and take them seriously. Vox nearly stole the show, with exception of questionable build quality. I read too many reviews of amps not holding up well. The price points weren't close between the two, either. Roland was the economical, build, and performance quality that won out. Ultimately I couldn't justify spending the extra money for a name.

So, you can pay double the price and still not have the quality of this little Roland. If you are looking for a good practice option with onboard effects, give this little amp some attention.

Quite what I was expecting - plus, some of the onboard effects and settings help to make this a great sounding "personal" unit. I need to replace my Peavey 'Backstage' practice amp with something a bit more substantial - and this kind of fit the bill.

I'm one of those that does considerable reading and research before spending my hard earned cash. After lengthy research, and trying a variety of amps, I settled on the Roland Cube 20X and can't be happier! I play mainly acoustic guitar, but have lately taken to playing and building electrified cigar box guitars. I rarely play out, so my needs for a large,powerful amp were small.....I mainly wanted a small wattage amp for home or small venue use. This Cube fit the need perfectly. It has a variety of tones and settings, is very easy to use, and the settings stay the same when switching back and forth from clean to lead. I explored the Line 6 Spyder series, but found the Roland 8 inch speaker superior to even the 10 inch Celestion used in the Line 6 Spyder 30 amp! The Cube is small, light and powerful. The sound is clean, even when using maximum gain and volume. I like the options of tone this amp has...clean, distortion, metal...then add flange or phazer with reverb....perfect! Regardless of the guitar used (Tacoma acoustic, Strat, or my single pole electrified cigar box) this amp sounds great. For the money, and company reputation of Roland, you can't go wrong.

I bought this practice amp for one reason: the Power Squeezer.
I read an article a year ago about Mesa having a dual (sub amp) set
up that did what the Squeezer does, but as it turned out, they did not
offer anything like this, and I really didn't want to pay for a boutique amp anyway.
I have many, many new amps (mostly Fender) and have the capability to run up the gain and volume on any of them and bring the cops down on me, but wanted something to practice full gain/distortion with, but this amp is far
to expensive for what it does.
With this said, if you don't need the squeezer, then look elsewhere for a better amp at a lower price,
like the 16Amp Fender G-Dec Junior that does a much better job at $60.00 less (or more), or the Fender 25R Frontman at $80.00 less that takes care of the overdrive problem with its own drive volume control.

I run my Frontman (with a 10" speaker) and the older G-Dec 15 side by side for practice (the 15 has Accompaniment loops and tempo metronome that I use a lot, and the Frontman can take care of the overdrive).

THE ROLAND SPEAKER WILL BREAK UP WHEN PUSHING THE VOLUME, AND THE FENDER DOES NOT!
Also, although I have not run into this problem with the Roland, a lot of people complain about speaker hissing
from both the 20XL and 40XL models.
If I had it to do over again, I would not have purchased the Roland.
I guess there is a good reason why I own mostly Fender amps.
