Special edition Blues Cube Hot amp, Boss MS-3 pedalboard and more introduced by Roland

Just like a vintage tube amp, the British EL84 Modified loves stompboxes, allowing you to further shape your sound with your favourite gain pedals.

Continuing its month-long ‘The Future. Redefined’ new product announcement event, Roland has unveiled a new amp, pedalboard and switchers.

First up, the Blues Cube Hot “British EL84 Modified” is a special edition version of the popular Blues Cube Hot amplifier.

In contrast to the American tweed sound of the standard amp, the Blues Cube Hot “British EL84 Modified” is specially tuned to produce the voice of a traditional British combo with EL84 tubes, also known as the “class A” sound.

Offered in a classic black look, the 30-watt Blues Cube Hot amp delivers legendary Brit combo tone in a compact, gig-ready combo.

Just like a traditional Brit combo, the Blues Cube Hot “British EL84 Modified” offers a huge range of tones from a single volume knob. You get clean, natural tube fullness and bite at lower volumes, and ever-increasing crunch as you turn up. There’s also a Boost switch to add more gain and thickness, plus a Tone switch to kick in a sparkling high-range presence.

And just like a vintage tube amp, the Blues Cube Hot “British EL84 Modified” loves stompboxes, allowing you to further shape your sound by hitting the amp’s front end with your favourite gain pedals.

Speaking of pedals, Roland has also introduced the new Boss MS-3 pedalboard, which is designed to maximise your creative options by combining a world-class multi-effects engine and multi-pedal switcher in one small, dedicated unit.

The MS-3 is a sonic powerhouse capable of running six internal pedal effects at once while seamlessly integrating three of your favourite external pedals. It also offers deep rig control capabilities, allowing you to switch amp channels, adjust effects in real time, work with MIDI devices, and more.

With the MS-3, it’s easy to create a portable board or fly rig without the compromises associated with traditional loop switchers and all-in-one multi-effects units.

As well as these two MI products, Roland has introduced the XS-1HD multi-format Matrix Switcher and the V-800HD MK II Multi-Format Video Switcher.

The XS-1HD is ideal for supporting live event productions that involve a variety of video signals. A high quality scaler is provided on each input, allowing for fast setup. At only the width of a 13” laptop computer, the XS-1HD allows realtime operation in even the most space-limited working environments.

Meanwhile, the V-800HD MK II is an updated version fo the industry standard multiformat video switcher. It features a refreshed interface for improved workflow with the versatile multiformat V-800 video switcher. Newly added AUX bus delegation layer switches enhance both visibility and operability.
