What we say:
A downsized Jazz Chorus that retains that special, distinctive sound and unique look? Yes please!
The famously clean tones of the Roland JC-120 Jazz Chorus have enjoyed a wide and diverse legacy since the amp first appeared in 1975. Used by players like Andy Summers and Adrian Belew, it’s high-headroom solid state sound was also the go-to clean amp for Messrs Hetfield and Hammett of Metallica! It’s distinctive tone has been a mainstay in multiple genres ever since.
The JC-120 is, to be fair, quite a large and heavy combo. For gigging it's absolutely perfect but some family members do object to having such a large, industrial-looking box sitting in their living room. Roland's staff must have had these very conversations with their nearest and dearest because now they have given us this small (but still up for a gig) 40 watt stereo JC-40 combo. With it's two 10 inch speakers it's hardly tiny but the dimensions of this robust box are a lot more manageable.
The JC-40 has the same onboard effects as the JC-120: Chorus, vibrato, reverb and distortion. The famous Jazz Chorus sound remains intact and the amp has two inputs for chaining up processors or modellers in stereo. This amp is loud enough for smaller gigs but really works as a recording/rehearsing and home-playing amplifier with great tone.
