Check out the latest and greatest gear from the first day of the 2014 Summer NAMM show.

Roland U.S.'s new Blues Cube amps take a bit of a departure from past designs with what the company is calling Tube Logic circuitry. Both the larger Artist and the smaller Club versions feature a two-channel architecture that models 6L6-driven classic tweed amps, and feature a 3-band EQ, output attenuation, reverb, and a 12" speaker. The 80-watt Artist also features tap-tempo tremolo and a presence control for $899 street, while the 60-watt Club lacks these, as well as some footwitchability, for $699 street.
