I was recently invited to a top-secret "preview" of several Roland and Boss products at CenterStaging in Burbank, California — a super-cool facility where top stars refine their acts (the Grammy Awards rehearsals are usually held here). In addition to three new Boss Waza Craft compact pedals and a surprising Blues Cube (be sure to check out those tests here at guitarplayer.com, as well), I was able to spend some time with the Roland Cube-10GX.

The Roland team and video crew allowed me unfettered access to the Cube-10GX, and pretty much left me alone to try out the sounds and features — although I was not able to test the Cube Kit app that's mentioned in the video, as it wasn't 100-percent ready for the preview session. As you'll see in the video below, I had a lot of fun with this micro amp. It's a brilliant songwriting tool when you need some quick tones to craft licks, riffs, and rhythm parts, and the basic Clean, Crunch, and Lead sounds loaded into the Cube-10GX are certainly more than adequate for crafting some home-recording tracks.
