    Transistor circuit 100% MIJ 1981

    Both low and high impedance inputs

    The Basics: Volume, Treble, Bass, Distortion (Ed. chainsaw or noise insecticide end of life) Reverb

    UTILIZATION

    Mono channel pure, clear, air, lyrical, expressive, balanced, tasty and addictive to me.

    Do not compare it to any lamps, each his hunting ground.

    It's just different tenors of cleans gulps.

    ALL cleans sounds come alive for little like it.

    Like everywhere else, it is the intrinsic quality of the instruments used to make all the difference.

    Electric, bass and digital synth.

    Cash ALL pedals that gives him to eat, a gulf on its own, a giant kebab in any amount.

    OVERALL OPINION

    10 years of mutual friendship.

    In transistor, I have not heard better, a fortiori.

    Just need to find all Satus gulps, the transistors ods in this area of ​​great clarity are few, it must be acknowledged.

    To advise all those who are fond of its transparent or liquid sound characteristics.

    I redo the same choice tomorrow if anything happens to him.

    The voice of reason

    Roland Jazz Chorus JC-50Published on 10/23/12 at 07:32
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Characteristics have already been detailed. It is a transistor amp well known combo with hp 12 "with two inputs (high and low), a bright switch, 3-band EQ one, distortion, reverb and, optionally, a chorus or tremolo. footswitch can be used for many of these features.

    This is an amp simple, plug and play, with everything you need. I put 7 because there is nothing special.

    UTILIZATION

    The use is very simple, and you get a good clear sound directly. Everything seems to be no-more-can-simple, and in fact, it is intuitive. However, it is useful to experiment with the EQ and bright switch when you want to use effects and distos, to find the right combination.

    This is an amp simple, plug and play, with everything you need. I put 7 because there is nothing special.

    UTILIZATION

    The use is very simple, and you get a good clear sound directly. Everything seems to be no-more-can-simple, and in fact, it is intuitive. However, it is useful to experiment with the EQ and bright switch when you want to use effects and distos, to find the right combination.

    The receiver accepts pedals very well, but some simple combinations are difficult. For example, if I want to use a Custom Fuzz (of Techniguitare), I'll reduce the treble a bit, because the combination (with my telecaster) is too strident (and not saturate the JC50 treble, since it is pure clean). But then when I turn off the fuzz, I will be forced to activate the bright amp at the same time to keep sharp on my signal light. Another solution might be to put an EQ in the chain of effect, but we need more pedals.

    Significant advantage of this amp: it still sounds pretty good to basvolume. Even if you have to be very delicate with the button. This button is unfortunately quite linear, and the main setting range is located in the first third of the race knob.

    The distortion is not very nice. Moreover, it is not really the distortion, more a kind of light saturation a bit uncomfortable, added to the sound. It's not as useless as some say, but it's pretty uninteresting.

    In short, this amp is a simple and easy to accept the pedals and with which one can do everything, but some pedals require a little planning. So, I put 7. This is good, but not crazy.

    SOUNDS

    The first thing that surprised me with this amp is both its sweetness and punch. There is a terrible dynamic, which makes it very enjoyable to play.

    The clean sound is beautiful, and beautifully renders the character of different guitars. It is also a pretty accurate in his grave, and when I play a lot of notes, they are clearly distinguished (Therefore, I have to play better).

    We have access to a whole range of sounds clear, the more strident the more subdued, full of sound and warm bass sounds dry and precise (secret, reduce the volume a little guitar, if it has a trebble bleed).

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for two months and I love it. I bought it without trying it out of curiosity and because it was really cheap (200 €). I thought I would sell, but I'll certainly keep it.

    As I play almost without pedals, it does not allow me to do anything, and I will definitely buy something like AC15 for versatility, but will JC50 my first amp for jazz or reggae. This is an amp that has a lot of quality, especially considering its low price and convenience to transistor technology. This amp is a reassuring, certainly the voice of reason.

    UTILIZATION

    This is an amp could not be more simple to configure. Whatever the setting, clean sound that sounds never aggressive or farts eardrum. A knob for bass, treble knob, and roll pan. The settings are effective.

    SOUNDS

    I bought it to shoot with my reggae band at the time, and it was more than the case both by the sound of the power released. I even did an open-air, without repeats. But for any style, it could play. He took very well my digitech multi effects, then I used to do solo leads into saturated, for example. It takes pedals well saturated in general (OD1 boss for me).

But for any style, it could play. He took very well my digitech multi effects, then I used to do solo leads into saturated, for example. It takes pedals well saturated in general (OD1 boss for me).
    I agree with other opinions on the original distortion that is undesirable. unusable. The reverb on mine (an early 80s MIJ) was not at the top either.
    For against the big plus of this amp is its chorus (perfect for casseroles like Brigadier Sabari, for those who know). The vibrato is very special, and I do not see what use it can have, in truth (nothing to do with the Fender vibrato). Unfortunately my selection button effect broke, and the chorus bye bye!
    I played with my strats and Les Paul Deluxe and it was fine with both.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I used it for 5/6 years, after my group is gone, and it has become more cumbersome than anything else, especially since I would have preferred fender amps. So I sold to a guy who had done the same reasoning as me: a good amp for clean sound, no lights and their little problems, to turn, and takes pedals well. For the price, and therefore this reasoning, it is a good investment, even if it does not provide pleasure as intense as a amplar lamps correct. This purchase is a reason more than passion if I summarize, unless one is an absolute freak funky sounds - reggae - Afro 80s. He has never betrayed, super reliable. The MIJ early 80s are quite sought after for the quality of their HP and I understand why.

    UTILIZATION

    Voil just one week I have the machine in the hands. I bought it for the price: I must say that I was fortunate to come across a seller who did not know what he was selling: 150! I bought it thinking of selling it but I must admit that I tate a bit now.
    N'tant not a fan of clean sounds, the only thing I can say is that the clean sound is better than my JCM800: ca claque, it shines. I think it's a perfect amp for jazz, of course, but also reggae, ska, country, and other zic or sound is clear ncessaire

    SOUNDS

    A Premire thing: the distortion of this amp is the most pathetic I've heard. It looks like something chainsaw style asthmatic or flushing sound heard in the softphone.
    It is made for one thing and one alone: ​​the clean sounds! The amp is trs warm despite the absence of the indoor pipes. Submitted trs are the serious and well round the treble sparkle without be aggressive. The reverb is nice trs. It's the best reverb intgre transistor amplifier I have heard. In short, it sounds good and even trs. It's not a Fender but it's good quality of TRS.

    I do not know if this is to my gear or something but to get a clean sound relement I must decrease the volume on my guitar may be my microwave has a too high output?
    With flight 10 on my guitar, a small distortion is not the dplaisante for a little blues.

    I test the addition of pedals with this amp: a handmade overdrive sounds trs well even if the highs become too dry, the area mtal boss when she gives her I got too synthetic.

    I do not speak the chorus or the virato them both down on this amp. But as I am not a patient of the effects and plutt supporter of guitar -> distortion -> amp, chorus and vibrato I type the Coquillard ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    One of the best amplifiers for clear sound. Ms. 250 qualitprix report is more than adequate. I have not had time to try it repeated, but I'm sure the ads are Submitted 50W.
    Compared what I play: it is clear this was not the amp of my dreams, but I was looking for easy carry around an amp with a headphone jack (the PSE JCM800 35kg and regis 50Watts s by mashall are widely dpasss trs). I try and 15min is enough to convince me I must admit that it's really the charm and characters. As I am not a fan effects galore, or versatility, the spirit of the JC-50 touch me. It's gross, it makes a sound and a single but what's p ****! I still find the ringing distortion with this amp.
