« Not Bad »

This amp produces some nice and very usable tones. The cleans are just out of this world good. Arguably the best clean amp that has ever been produced in the Roland Jazz Chorus. This amp has been sued the world over. One big user was James Hetfield from Metallica. All of his clean tones came from that amp during recording sessions. So in this amp they have modeled the clean after that highly sought after tone. Wow does this thing produce some fantastic cleans. It is almost worth owning this amp just for that application.

SOUNDS

The clean is probably the most impressive tone from this amp. Since it is based off of the best clean channel amp in history. However, the dirty channel and the solo channel are excellent plu you have the 11 amp model to choose from. This amp produces some good lead distortion for soling and chugging rhythm tones. I like this amp will a Les Paul or other humbucking style guitar. The clean is so good that it makes a bulky Les Paul tone seem chimey like a Fender Tele.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these units come in at around $370 which to me is a bit high. This is still an amp modeler and doesn't have any tubes. So the price to me seems a bit steep. If I were to get one I would go for the 15 watter since I just want the practice aspect of the amp. This amp is 80 watts and is intended to be more than a practice amp. They want you to gig with this amp. It does have good tone ad so i you wanted to run in into a PA system or recording device for line use. If that were the case though I would get the 40 or 15w version.
