Roland Cube Lite Monitor / Guitar Amplifier

Two variants of the same concept, the Cube Lite Monitor is a chunky but compact speaker for keyboardists and synth alchemists, while the Cube Lite Guitar Amplifier is a practice amp for axe wielders. The Monitor comes with reverb and delay effects while the Amp offers its own distortion. Both link up to an iOS app for playing along to your music collection.
