About Roland Amps

Roland amps are a favourite among all types of players.

Roland’s most famous guitar amp is the Jazz Chorus. It was first introduced in 1975 and designed with jazz players in mind. They actually became a key ingredient in post-punk with bands such as The Smiths, The Cure and Talking Heads all using them. Even Metallica used a Jazz Chorus! They are famous for being incredibly clean with no natural overdrive and including a built-in chorus effect. This lush effect was so popular that they soon turned it into a stand-alone unit: the CE-1. This was the first chorus pedal!

Today’s bestselling Roland Amp is, without a doubt, the Street Cube. These ubiquitous red wedges can be seen on streets all over the world as a favourite among buskers. With the ability to plug in multiple sound sources including a microphone and backing track, these battery-powered amps are perfect for street performers. The Roland Blues Cube is a genuine solid-state alternative to valve amplifiers. It is perfect for players who love the valve sound but not the valve maintenance.
