The JC-40 Jazz Chorus delivers Roland’s renowned “JC clean” tone and signature stereo chorus effect in a compact combo amp with evolved features for the modern guitarist.

Legendary Stereo Tone, Modern Innovation

Like the flagship Roland JC-120 amp,, the JC-40 offers a classic stereo clean sound that’s a perfect palette for tone shaping with stompbox effects. Now, there’s also a true stereo input for enhanced performance with stereo effects pedals, guitar synths, amp modeling gear, and multi-effects. In addition, the JC-40’s onboard effects include newly added features and updated sounds to support the needs of today’s players.

Key Features:

  • Legendary Roland "JC clean" tone in a small, gig-ready combo amp
  • Stereo 40-watt amp with two 10-inch speakers
  • Stereo input enables players to get true stereo sound with modelers and stereo effects pedals
  • Signature Dimensional Space Chorus effect for expansive stereo sound
  • Built-in vibrato, distortion, and reverb effects, newly evolved for modern styles
  • Footswitch jacks for turning onboard effects on/off while performing
  • Stereo effects loop for connecting external effects

From the time it was first manufactured back in 1975, the JC-120 was, and still is, aimed at a totally different sound from the warm distortion sound of the standard tube amp. Early on, the solid and straight “JC Clean” sound was not so attractive to some musicians who loved the good old tube distortion. Gradually, however, the transparency and pureness of the “JC Clean” sound was found to be irreplaceable by many guitarists. With its incomparable tone and professional durability the Jazz Chorus series has consistently been around throughout the evolution of music from the time of its debut. It has never been stuck in the past and continues to provide solutions for the changing musical scene from the recording studio to the live stage.

Rich History

The JC Jazz Chorus series was born in 1975. Since that time its distinctive “JC Clean” tone and original “Dimensional Space Chorus” effect have been loved by many of music’s biggest names. These characteristics are achieved by a unique design which is optimized for producing a clean sound.

The Jazz Chorus series has been able to maintain a standalone status in the music scene for decades. Even now Roland’s Jazz Chorus Series is still evolving as a cutting edge product.
