Owner’s Manual
Thank you, and congratulations on your choice of the Roland CUBE-60 Guitar Amplifier.
These sections provide important information concerning the proper operation of the unit.
Additionally, in order to feel assured that you have gained a good grasp of every feature
provided by your new unit, Owner’s manual should be read in its entirety. The manual
should be saved and kept on hand as a convenient reference.
Before using this unit, carefully read the sections entitled
• IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS (p. 2)
• USING THE UNIT SAFELY (p. 3–p. 4)
• IMPORTANT NOTES (p. 5).
This unit is equipped with a protection circuit.
The protection circuit helps ensure safety by operating when excessive input continues for
a long time while the device is at a location with a high ambient temperature. Sound dropout may occur when the protection circuit is actuated during use.
Please read through the documentation carefully to ensure correct use.
Main Features
• 60-watt output, high-performance, DSP guitar amp with built-in 30 cm (12-inch) speaker.
• Offers nine types of COSM amps, including realistic modeling of seven of the most
popular guitar amps and two original amp types, “ACOUSTIC” and “DYNA AMP.”
The newly developed “DYNA AMP” lets you achieve previously unexperienced levels
of tonal variation based on your picking dynamics, for whole new levels of expression.
Composite Object Sound Modeling (COSM) is Roland’s innovative and powerful
sound modeling technology. COSM analyzes the many factors that make up the
original sound, such as the electrical and physical characteristics of the original, and
then produces a digital model that can reproduce the same sound.
• Channel can be switched between “JC CLEAN” and “LEAD.” Channel switching can
be done via foot switch (optional).
• In addition to an easy-to-use, 3-band equalizer, the CUBE-60 also features a PRESENCE
knob, which you can use to create a wide variety of precisely defined sounds.
• Comes equipped with four effects types, chorus, flanger, phaser, and tremolo, along
with an independent system with the basic delay and reverb effects. You can also use
foot switches (optional) to switch these effects on and off.
• Equipped with a convenient “RECORDING OUT jack” handy for use in recording.
This output also functions as a headphone jack.
Also features LINE OUT, TUNER OUT, and EXT SPEAKER outs. These outputs can be
used for all kinds of performances, from recording to live gigs.

IMPORTANT NOTES
291b
In addition to the items listed under “IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS” and “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on pages 2,
3 and 4, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply
Maintenance
301
401a
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is being
used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by an
inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit to
malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a power
supply noise filter between this unit and the electrical outlet.
307
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the
power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions
and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
308
• Although the LEDs are switched off when the POWER
switch is switched off, this does not mean that the unit has
been completely disconnected from the source of power. If
you need to turn off the power completely, first turn off
the POWER switch, then unplug the power cord from the
power outlet. For this reason, the outlet into which you
choose to connect the power cord’s plug should be one
that is within easy reach.
Placement
351
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment
containing large power transformers) may induce hum. To
alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this unit; or
move it farther away from the source of interference.
352a
• This device may interfere with radio and television reception.
Do not use this device in the vicinity of such receivers.
352b
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications devices,
such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of this unit.
Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or
while conversing. Should you experience such problems,
you should relocate such wireless devices so they are at a
greater distance from this unit, or switch them off.
354b
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near
devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed
vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes.
Also, do not allow lighting devices that normally are used
while their light source is very close to the unit (such as a
piano light), or powerful spotlights to shine upon the
same area of the unit for extended periods of time.
Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.
355b
• When moved from one location to another where the
temperature and/or humidity is very different, water
droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage
or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in
this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must
allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation
has completely evaporated.
• For everyday cleaning wipe the unit with a soft, dry cloth
or one that has been slightly dampened with water. To
remove stubborn dirt, use a cloth impregnated with a
mild, non-abrasive detergent. Afterwards, be sure to wipe
the unit thoroughly with a soft, dry cloth.
402
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any kind,
to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or deformation.
Additional Precautions
553
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s
buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks
and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
556
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the
connector itself—never pull on the cable. This way you
will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the cable’s
internal elements.
557
• A small amount of heat will radiate from the unit during
normal operation.
558a
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s
volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use
headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about
those around you (especially when it is late at night).
559a
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box
(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise,
you will need to use equivalent packaging materials.
921
• To prevent malfunction and/or damage to speakers or
other devices, always turn down the volume, and turn off
the power on all devices before making any connections.
941
• Once the connections have been completed, turn on power
to your various devices in the order specified. By turning
on devices in the wrong order, you risk causing
malfunction and/or damage to speakers and other devices.
1. Turn on the device connected to the CUBE-60’s input
jack.
2. Turn on the CUBE-60.
3. Switch on any equipment connected to the CUBE-60’s
LINE OUT and RECORDING OUT/PHONES jacks.
Turn off the devices in the reverse order to which they
were switched on.
• Wrap the power cord around the cord hook when transporting or storing the unit.
• Do not insert hands, fingers, etc, into the openings in the
unit's rear panel. In particular, if the unit is to used in
households with small children, always provide adult
supervision to ensure that children keep their hands and
feet out of these openings.
356
• Do not allow rubber, vinyl, or similar materials to remain
on the unit for long periods of time. Such objects can
discolor or otherwise harmfully affect the finish.
359
• Do not paste stickers, decals, or the like to this instrument.
Peeling such matter off the instrument may damage the
exterior finish.

1. INPUT Jack
Connect your guitar here.
2. SELECT Switch
Switches you between the JC CLEAN and LEAD channels.
You can confirm which channel is selected by checking the
indicator’s color (JC CLEAN: green; LEAD: red).
The channel can be switched using the optional BOSS FS-5U
foot switch.
JC CLEAN Channel
This is a model of Roland’s famous JC-120 Jazz Chorus guitar
amplifier.
The ultra-clean, ultra-flat sound offers a smooth. This becomes
more effective when used in combination with a multi effector.
3. BRIGHT Switch
Creates a sparkling midrange and high end for a crisp and
distinct sound.
This is perfect for chord strumming with humbucking pickups.
4. VOLUME Knob
Adjusts the JC CLEAN channel volume. On the CUBE-60,
distortion is gradually added as you turn this knob to the
right, producing a crunch sound as the knob is turned up
near maximum.
LEAD Channel
5. Type Switch
You can select from the following eight amp types:
ACOUSTIC
This is an original amp type included with the acoustic
simulator. Turns the sounds from your electric guitar into a
clear, refined acoustic guitar sound.
Using this type together with a single coil pickup in the
front position provides optimum sound quality. If using
a humbucking pickup, slightly turn down the
equalizer’s BASS and MIDDLE settings.

BLACK PANEL
This is modeled on the classic Fender Twin Reverb amplifier,
used in a wide variety of musical styles, from country to blues,
jazz and rock. Exhibiting rich lows and a bright high end.
BRIT COMBO
This is modeled on the Vox AC-30TB, the rock amplifier that
created the Liverpool sound of the ’60s. It can produce a
broad range of sounds, from clean to overdrive.
TWEED
This is modeled on the vintage Tweed Fender Bassman 4x10
Combo. The amplifier’s four 10-inch speakers produce a
clear upper-midrange with a fat low end, and its unique
crunch tones make it a favorite of blues-rock guitarists.
CLASSIC STACK
This is modeled on the sound and response of a Marshall
JMP1987. Used extensively in hard rock during the 1970s,
this is truly the perfect amp for the “top rock” guitar sound.
METAL STACK
This is modeled on the Peavey EVH-5150. This is the high
gain amp, so even at low volumes, you can still get heavy
distortion and sustain.
R-FIER STACK
This is modeled on the MESA/Boogie Rectifier. This super
high gain amp is capable of producing slash metal, grunge,
and a wide range of other lead sounds.
DYNA AMP
This is an original amp sound that lets the player create
previously unobtainable tonal changes according to the
picking strength. Soft picking produces a transparent clean
amp sound, while hard picking results in a deeply distorted
high-gain amp sound. Once the sound is distorted, the tone
then changes according to the force used in picking, greatly
expanding your range of expression.
Setting the GAIN knob to the optimal position provides
the greatest effect.
Start by setting the GAIN knob to the center position,
then adjust the knob so that a clean tone is obtained
with soft picking and deep distortion is obtained with
hard picking.

Space Clean
This is a transparent sound using spacial effects.
Select the JC CLEAN amp, modeled on the Roland JC-120,
then add chorus and long delay.
Using this setting with a guitar equipped with single coil
pickups makes beautiful sounding arpeggios and chord
strumming.
If using a humbucking pickup, turn the BRIGHT switch to
ON to achieve a bright, sparkling sound.
BRIGHT : ON or OFF
SELECT : JC CLEAN
Depending on the phrase being played, it can be effective
to set the delay sound’s delay time slightly slower than the
phrase’s tempo.
Swamp Crunch
This is a blues sound found in vintage amps.
The boosted midrange is a particular characteristic of the
TWEED amp.
By adjusting the TREBLE knob, you can emphasize the
picking’s attack sound.
To create a fat, sweet sound, reduce the presence a little.
SELECT : LEAD
To produce a transparent and sharp crunch sound, lower
the midrange and boost the presence slightly.
You can also control the tube amp’s characteristic sustain
by adjusting the GAIN knob.
Classic Rock
This is a 70s-style rock sound.
Turning up the gain produces a powerful rock sound in all
riffs and solos.
A powerful low end is a characteristic of the sound emitted
by the surfaces of the cabinet, so you can turn up the
equalizer knobs, especially the BASS knob, and increase
the presence to produce a sound with great punch.
SELECT : LEAD
Turning the GAIN knob and equalizer all the way up
produces an even more powerful, driving sound.
Turning down the GAIN knob is also a perfect way to get a
sharp crunch sound.

Sample Settings
Dynamic Style
DYNA AMP is an original amp that uses relative picking
strength to create changes in distortion depth.
SELECT : LEAD
First, adjust the GAIN knob so that a clean tone is obtained
with soft picking and deep distortion is obtained when you
pick hard.
Now, mixing arpeggios played with a gentle touch along
with firmly picked chords and solos results in a guitar
sound with huge dynamics.
Now, to create a broader, more open sound, cut the
midrange and raise the low end and presence.
Using this in combination with the EFX and delay and
reverb creates a sound with an even greater feeling of scale.
Country Twang
SELECT : LEAD
A dry, distinctive country sound.
The BLACK PANEL amp has a powerful midrange
supported by a thick, solid low end, providing a clean
sound that is punchy and sweet.
By adjusting the sound while maintaining the balance
between the low and high ends, and in some cases cutting
back on the midrange, you bring out the guitar's bright
resonance even more.
Adding deep tremolo and reverb creates a good effect on
guitars equipped with single-coil pickups.
On guitars equipped with humbucking pickups, turning
down the highs creates a sweet sound that is perfectly
matched for jazz and similar genres.
Mersey Beat
This is the famous Liverpool sound from the past.
This sound features a mild distortion that still lets all the
notes in a chord come through clearly and distinctly.
SELECT : LEAD
Raise the midrange and presence on the BRIT COMBO
amp to create a lively, energetic sound.
Adjust the GAIN knob so that sound does not distort too
much when you play chords.
Use of a rear pickup provides a powerful sound with no
muddiness, producing a beautiful resonance when mixing
open strings with chords.
The sound may distort excessively when a guitar equipped
with humbucking pickups or other high-output guitar is
used. If this occurs, you can reduce the gain in order to get
a good balance between the guitar sound and the
distortion sound, or alternatively, you can adjust the sound
by cutting back the low end.
