In 1975, Roland welcomed the arrival of the first JC-120. A revolution in guitar amplifier technology, the JC-120 Jazz Chorus looked and sounded like no other amp. Thirty years later, the JC-120 remains in high demand by guitarists around the world. Unchanged from its original specification, the JC had attained legendary status by amp connoisseurs the world over. Now this rich heritage can be found in Roland's full line of guitar and bass amplifiers from the CUBE- to the AC- and D-Bass series.
The JC-120 was designed to be the best clean amp ever made. Forty years on, its pure, transparent tonal signature—supported by an integrated stereo amplification system and custom 12-inch speakers—still remains unsurpassed in the guitar world.
Along with its unique clean tone, the JC-120 is equally revered for its impressive Dimensional Space Chorus effect. While commonplace today, the chorus effect was actually first introduced to the world as part of this very amplifier. Operating in true stereo, the JC-120’s chorus still provides a tonal experience like no other, filling the stage with amazingly lush, immersive sound.
The JC-120 has the flexibility to deliver the power and tone you neede for any style. It's an ideal platform for stompbox pedals, multi-effects, amp modelers and guitar synths as the JC clean tone preserves the character of your basic guitar sound so you can hear the sound created by your devices. Then fine tune your sound with a three band EQ on each channel.
The Roland JC-20's rear panel features an effects loop for patching in mono or stereo effects, and you even have your choice of serial or parallel operation. Line Out jacks provide a convenient mono or stereo feed for sending your sound to a mixing board or recorder. There’s also support for optional footswitches, allowing you to easily turn the amp’s chorus/vibrato, reverb, and distortion effects on/off while performing.
To support its timeless sound, the JC-120 features durable, heavy-duty construction for years of reliable operation. Outlined with oversized, industrial-grade studs and equipped with top-quality casters, hard-fiber edge protectors, and high-impact corner brackets, the JC-120 is built to fully withstand the rigors of the road.
