« Nice 55 watter »

Publié le 07/10/11 à 23:06
This is the 55 watt version of the most popular clean amp in existence. You don't have 120 watts of power but only 55 which makes it a lot cheaper and a lower priced as well. These are harder to find then the JC120, but equally as good.

The Jazz Chorus probably the most recognizable Roland amp ever created. Also probably the most highly sought after solid state amp on the planet. And maybe the most highly used clean tone that has ever been created!

From studios to stages this amp has seen a number of uses and major users, such as Metallica and many others. This amp has a clean tone that is perfect for recording as well as running a pedals in front of.

UTILIZATION

* The classic and most popular "JC" since 1975
* 60W 12" x 2 speakers
* Distinctive "JC" stereo chorus
* Vibrato with rate and depth control
* Two input channels (normal/effect); 3-band EQ per channel
* Stereo effect loop
* Three footswitch jacks for chorus/vibrato, reverb and distortion

SOUNDS

The tone from this amp is so legendary! You get 55 watts rather than 120 which is much more usable. The clean is really the reason you buy this amp but the ability to take distortion pedals is a huge bonus. The amp takes on your favorite pedal quite well and amplifies the natural harmonics of your guitar and playing style.

For me there is only one reason to own this amp...and that is to use it on a recording for clean tone. The chorus is very lush and smooth! It sounds great with just about any guitar you throw at it. If you have listened to any Metallica album then you have heard this amp.

OVERALL OPINION

If you really want to gig with this amp then it is a good purchase, but if you just want to use it for recording a particularly the clean then save several hundred dollars and get a Cube amp from Roland that has the JC Clean. But this amp is so classic anyway that it is a must own!

I would recommend this amp to anyone who needs the best clean tone you could get out of an amp. I am partial to solid state cleans as I feel that they have a sparkle that tubes cannot match. Distortion is a whole different ball game but the cleans will get you the best chimey sparkle you have ever heard.
