JC-40

05.11.2015
I did have very high recommendation for clean tone to buy Roland JC. I need it mostly for the jazzy music.
I was probably one of the first buyers from Thomann and there were no reviews available from buyers yet. I usually do not take sellers and especially presenters reviews very seriously and now I got a confirmation that I've been right on that.

Pros -
really loud, it has The Chorus and Vibrato, it has FS i/o for each effect etc. good for OD and different effects probably

Cons -
10" has not enough "bottom" for clean (loudness does not compensate that); FX loop has no true bypass;
MAIN downside is incredible hiss, which makes this model unusable on lower volume, especially to mic it. Certainly not in studio.

My God, what else can you say about a Roland Jazz Chorus?

It's a good thing, because Roland is on it, because Roland (Boss) is - as good as everything is good and you can buy it blindly (by the way, similar to Yamaha).

Then the small 40 watt JC-variant is top because it does not sound like the big brother JC-120. Except in weight and tympanic dangers. Thank you very much! By the way - so that no misunderstandings regarding power arise: The 40 watt are not tame HiFi wattles but just in the interaction with the two 10-inchers very, very loud, if? S must be. In my music (Indietronica with Amp modeling via Mac etc.) I come through with it in every 200 people club. At least...

To the equipment: Good, compared to the JC-120, he has "only" one channel, but the full width is stereo, also in the FX ways. Especially with the still legendary Chorus one can enjoy the very nice. Still a general word about the sound: The JCs simply sound good, because pleasantly transparent and not a bit harsh or cold. Even the built-in transistor tweaking has its fuzzy appeal - not to mention Hall, EQs, tremolo and said Megachorus.

For the price: Simply & simply worth every penny. Among other things, because the JCs are known to be unbreakable. Come with me so in the hereditary mass for the kids ... ;-)

Conclusion: Sounds super, 1A is equipped & processed, can be very loud, and is nevertheless compact and portable. And does not cost 700 euros at Thomann. Result: Five stars! At least...
