condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Roland
model name / number: Blues Cube Artist 212

I bought this amp pre-owned about month or two ago. It is simply too much amp for my little practice room. It is in very nice condition and brings a lot to the table. A nice foam type Roland cover is included. I also have an Eric Johnson tone capsule available for an additional $100 if purchased with the amp.

Below is the description....

Roland Blues Cube Artist212 85-Watt 2x12" Guitar Combo Amplifier
With the Blues Cube Artist212, guitarists can tap into Roland's acclaimed Tube Logic tone in a dual-speaker amp that's ready for bigger stages. The Artist212 is equipped with the same primary features as its 1x12 cousin, but with two custom 12-inch speakers and 85 watts of power for additional clean headroom when you really need to cut through. It also offers reduced size and weight when compared to typical 2x12 amps, making it the ideal choice for any gigging player who needs the fuller voice and enhanced projection of a dual-speaker combo.Going far beyond modeling, Roland's Tube Logic design philosophy starts with carefully reproducing the inner workings of the revered tweed-era tube amp in every way, from guitar input to speaker output. Versatile clean and crunch channels can be used independently or combined for a complex range of tones, while variable output power modes let you dial in burning, full-throttle sound at any volume. Road-tested and fine-tuned with feedback from top players, the gig-ready Blues Cube delivers the sweet, magical tone and satisfying feel that makes a great guitar amp a highly expressive musical instrument.Features:Performance-ready 85-watt, 2x12 combo guitar amplifier with authentic tube tone and touch responseRoland's comprehensive Tube Logic design delivers the interactive tonal behaviors of famous fine-tuned vintage tube amps, including preamp and output tube distortion characteristics, power supply compression, and much moreIndependent Clean and Crunch channels, plus unique Dual Tone mode for blending channels to expand tonal possibilitiesMaster volume, three-band EQ, and Presence control, plus Boost and Tone switches on each channelFour-way Power Control (0.5 W, 15 W, 45 W, Max) allows for cranked-amp tones at any volumeOnboard high-quality reverb and tremolo effects with vintage sound character, plus effects loop for external devicesClassic open-back design with two custom 12-inch speakers and poplar cabinet for enhanced presence on stageStylish, modern look with a vintage vibeEfficient, lightweight design provides easy portability without sacrificing tone qualityUSB output for high-quality direct recording to a computerOptional GA-FC Foot Controller for Channel Select, Dual Tone, and Tremolo/EFX LoopWarm, bouncy, responsive, dynamic, elastic...these are all terms that guitarists use to describe the satisfying experience of playing their favorite tube amps. Thanks to Roland's Tube Logic, these words can be applied to the Blues Cube Artist212 as well. Dramatically evolved from the first-generation sound of the original Blues Cube amps from the '90s, today's Tube Logic accurately provides the complex, highly interactive behavior of classic tube designs in meticulous detail, providing the magical "it" factor that takes a guitar amp from a simple sound system to a living, breathing musical instrument. Great feel, distortion control with touch and volume, bloom, sparkle, power supply "sag," and more--everything that players love about a finely tuned vintage tube amp is present in abundance with the Blues Cube.Ready for live playing, the Blues Cube Artist212 is equipped with 85 watts of power, plus two custom 12-inch speakers specially designed for maximum tonal response with Tube Logic The open-back cabinet features poplar plywood construction, which offers acoustically vibrant tone for solo or group performances.The Blues Cube Artist212 has two independent channels--one voiced for cleaner tones, and the other for crunch. Each channel has its own Boost and Tone switches to shape the character. The Clean channel's single volume control dials in natural tube fullness and bite as the volume is cranked, while the Crunch channel's variable gain control provides a range of grit flavors 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 favorite gain pedals.Every tube-amp player knows that you really need to turn up the volume and push the output tubes to get the amp to sing at its best. The downside is that the sound simply becomes too loud for playing anywhere but the biggest stages--though that's certainly never stopped guitarists from trying! With Tube Logic, the Blues Cube authentically delivers the complex distortion characteristics of output tubes and their interaction with the output transformer, with the sound getting richer and the feel becoming more dynamically responsive as the overall volume is increased. But with the Blues Cube's variable Power Control, you're able to enjoy this musical, cranked-up tone while matching the volume to any situation, from recording to rehearsals to nightclub gigs and beyond.With its modern approach, the Blues Cube eliminates two of the big drawbacks found in all tube amps powerful enough for stage playing--they're extremely heavy, prone to vibration damage, and they require frequent tube replacement and other costly maintenance to keep them going strong. In contrast, the Blues Cube is basically maintenance-free, and has been carefully designed to reduce weight in every area that doesn't affect the tone. With the Blues Cube, you're able to enjoy great tube sound at every gig, but with much easier load-in and no actual tubes to worry about!The Blues Cube Artist212 features onboard reverb and tremolo, plus an effects loop for patching in any external effect that you like. The rear panel has jacks for connecting an optional footswitch such as the GA-FC Foot Controller, which provides remote switching for channel selection, Dual Tone mode, and on/off for the tremolo and effects loop. And with the USB jack, it's simple to capture the Blues Cube Artist212's rich tones directly into your favorite computer recording applications.
