Roland JC-40 overview

  • 1Description

Featuring true stereo capabilities housed within a single unit, the Roland JC-40 is a 40W 2x10" combo amplifier designed to deliver clean tone to electric guitar. The unit features a three-band tone-stack and a bright switch, as well as distortion, reverb, chorus/vibrato capability. A set of dual inputs can be used for stereo purposes, such as connecting a stereo-output effects unit, or a guitar or synth with stereo output.

Turn your attention to the back of the amp and you'll notice multiple options for connectivity: An effects loop (switchable between series and parallel) will allow you to patch in stereo effects, while dual line outputs provide a convenient stereo feed into mixers, PAs, or recorders. You can achieve silent stereo practicing using the 1/4" headphone jack on the front panel.

With the addition of a footswitch (available separately) you can enable the on-board chorus/vibrato, reverb, and distortion settings at the tap of a toe.

    Roland JC-40 reviews

    Roland JC-40 Jazz Chorus 40W 2x10 Guitar Amplifier is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful clear tone For small combo work with a hollow-body jazz guitar, this amp has a great clean tone and in small rooms plenty of power even at its 40 watt rating. It must be extremely efficient because I have yet to go beyond 1 on the volume.
