Exclaim! - - REVIEWS -

The Roland Cor­po­ra­tion of Ja­pan is one of the top names in mu­sic equip­ment, known for hun­dreds of its pop­u­lar syn­the­siz­ers, drum ma­chines, gui­tar amps and BOSS ped­als. They clearly know a thing or two about gear, and they’re of­fer­ing one lucky Ex­claim! reader a hell of a prize pack. In ad­di­tion to one of their Blues Cube Hot gui­tar am­pli­fiers, they’re of­fer­ing four ped­als: a BOSS RC-3 loop sta­tion, BOSS DM-2W de­lay, BOSS BD-2 blues driver and BOSS TU-3S chro­matic tuner. The 30-watt combo amp comes per­for­mance-ready, with a tone sim­i­lar to a tweed-era tube amp but with mod­ern qual­i­ties — in­clud­ing a USB out­put to record di­rectly to a com­puter — un­avail­able back then. The ped­als will make your tone pop, with the blues driver com­ple­ment­ing the amp for a smooth bluesy crunch. The de­lay, mean­while, will fill out your sound and the loop will bring your riffs around for a sec­ond (or third or fourth or…you get it) time. Lastly, never for­get your tuner so ev­ery­thing sounds right. En­ter at ex­­tests.
