Roland Cube Street EX

Only a few days ago, an amp I’ve been drooling over for a long time finally arrived! And I just had to share all the fun I’m having with it ?

All the effects that you hear in the video below are built-in. I’m sure they can also be combined, I just haven’t gotten the chance to play more with that yet… This amp also has the option of being battery powered, for those busking outings. And, speaking of busking, I was surprised to find how light and easy to carry it is!

I can control the output to save on power depending on the situation:

Output power is adjustable in three levels—Max (50 W), Normal (25 W), and Eco (10 W)—letting you optimize battery life for different performing situations.

One of the reasons I fell in love with this amp was the full power it offered (50 W)!! As an electric violinist, I’ve often found that I need a lot of wattage to be heard over orchestras and bands.

It has 4 independent channels, and there’s an 1/8 inch jack in which I can plug my iPhone to play with backing tracks or directly record into apps like (one of my currently favorite on-the-go recording apps) Spire.

Above all, I love how warm and natural the sound is as well as all the EQ control I have (as you can imagine, balancing the sound of 6 strings can be tricky). Enjoy taking a listen to my fooling around with the just-out-of-the-box Cube Street EX!

“simplicity” is now available!

Due to a large and involved soundtrack project I recently took on (featuring my music that will appear in the background of an upcoming bingo game app), I am now able to share these fresh electronic tunes with you all as it’s own full album!

With smooth and comfortable underpinnings reminiscent of Brahms stepping out to jazz, or Zappa gently walking through a garden with a favorite melody, “simplicity” provides a meditative setting while rewarding close listening. The treasures are in the details […]
