Together with Kirk Fletcher, Roland has developed the Ultimate Blues Tone Capsule, a modification circuit for compatible amps from the current Blues Cube series. The Blues Cube is a solid state amplifier, the naked? The sound characteristics of the Fender Bassman with 6L6 tubes. The model for the design of the Tone Capsule UB was more of a deluxe reverb with 6V6 tubes. The Tone Capsule finds its place in a slot on the back of the Amp, whereby the assembly is nothing for fast changes, but basically stress-free in a few minutes.

Since I have no corresponding tube amp here, I can not compare how close Roland comes to the original. Basically I can say, however, that the playing feeling and the sound possibilities of the Blues Cube? I have the Artist 112? Amazingly rogue And are very convincing. It should be clear, that one from the Blues Cube (without tools) no official high-gain Sounds rausgehaben, which is probably not synonymous intended. We have an amp here that offers a very wide range of possibilities from cleansounds to snotty rock sounds. I am convinced above all by the dynamism, transparency and differentiated approach, which I have not yet experienced with a solid state amplifier.

So a first question would almost be answered: who needs the Tone Capsule UB? Nobody. The Blues Cube, as it is, is an absolutely complete amplifier and definitely an all-in-one recommendation for those who are basically open to this concept. Why then the whole thing? The Tone Capsule UB actually gives the Blues Cube a completely different character! It gets a lot more headroom, the sound becomes softer and even crunchy singlecoil sounds go quite pleasantly into the ear, without being squeaked or stinging. Of course we are here in the area of ??individual preferences; But I can say, for me the sun is rising here!

I have tested with my vehicle park, in which pickups besides Fender Singlecoils also Häussel BigMags, as well as Ibanez Super 58, Gibson mini Humbucker and Häussel Vin + and / or TOZZ. Completed the test with the 27 guitars of a friend? There is everything from the ES 175 to the Metal Ax. It was noticeable that every guitar sounds right up to quite hefty gain levels. The amp does not give the sound its own signature, but leaves the character of the instrument alive (by the way without Tone Capsule). Only two combinations could not convince; The Line6 Variax and an Ibanez SZ520 (which I found a particularly pity) deliver together with the Blues Cube rather boring, matte all-world sounding.

I have next to the Ultimate Blues capsule also the Robben Ford Tone Capsule, which again delivers another sound experience. My personal favorite is the UB Tone Capsule, although I like to change times. The sound samples of the protagonists (to be found by Roland or on youtube), by the way, give quite a good clue as to the direction of the sounds? Whoever likes it will like it.

Full score of mine, for an innovative product that is great fun and worth its price.

I have not been convinced by this Tone Capsule at all.
The little sound difference that this "Capsule" brings compared to the original sound of the amp does not justify, in my opinion, such an investment.
