  • Superb Performance

    As reviewed by Ric N. Backer on 10/31/2006

    I have had my new Roland JC-120 just over 2 weeks now. I bought it specifically for use with a new Rickenbacker 360-12 that I had bought a month earlier. The Ric has a stereo output splitting the two pick ups and the JC-120 seemed like the perfect 2 channel stereo chorus amp for this feature. (Recommended by Roger McGuinn as the best amp made for a Rickenbacker 12 string on his Byrds site.) I also have a strat, a tele, a les paul studio and a danelctro that all sound amazing through this amp. It has super clean volume, beautifully chiming reverb and chorus, hauntingly beautiful tremelo and a punchy fat distortion. This amp will fill a large hall or rock your living room just as well. I'm told the Roland JC-120 is a studio standard in the recording industry. I've also been running a Boss (Roland) ME-50 effects rig through this amp. On the back there are jacks for effects loop send and return, serial and parallel connections so that you can mix or separate processed and unprocessed sounds. You name it and the JC-120 performs for you. The local Guitar Center where I bought this didn't stock it and had to order it in for me. They had it in 2 days from request. Most of the guys at the shop had never seen the JC-120 before and they all had to try it out the night before I picked it up. Everyone of them expressed their envy and look at all the other in store options they have to play with. It's also just a really good looking amp as well.

  • The Jazz Chorus is my favorite amp

    As reviewed by brian817 on 10/30/2006

    The Roland Jazz Chorus (JC-120) has always been my favorite amp and I finally bought one about three years ago. This amp has been used by countless guitarists for years for that ultra clean and shimmering chorus sound either for chords, single string lines like the Cure, or arpeggios and the amp stays clean at very loud volumes. The built in distortion isn't very good though, and I never use it, and I think most people don't either. This amp is a workhorse and never fails, and being on casters is a great benefit.

  • Cleanest amp ever!

    As reviewed by Izzy on 6/29/2010

    Without a doubt, the JC-120 is as clean as clean can be. I play jazz, and this amp is the ticket for the warmth one wants to hear when chord comping & solo picking. It's no wonder the JC-120 has been the pro's choice on countless recordings. Chorus feature is awesome, as is the vibrato. Heavy as all get out, but the casters help. Distortion feature OK, but I never use it. If you're serious about owning an amp that will produce a true, clean sound, regardless of the axe you're using, the JC-120 is the ONE!
