Right here at Music Experience! One of the most popular guitar amps produced! The keys to the JC-120's huge success are its stunning clean sound and swirling, dripping wet chorus. The JC-120 has 120 watts with two 12" speakers, or 90 watts with dual channels, distortion, reverb, tremolo, and more. Discover why no one does chorus like Roland!
In 1975, Roland welcomed the arrival of the first JC-120. A revolution in guitar amplifier technology, the JC-120 looked and sounded like no other amp. Forty years later, the JC-120 remains in high demand by guitarists around the world. Unchanged from its original specification, the JC had attained legendary status by amp connoisseurs the world over. Now, this rich heritage can be found in Roland's full line of guitar and bass amplifiers - from the CUBE to the AC- and D-Bass series.
Roland's JC-120 amplifier is legendary for its clean, sparkling sound and true-stereo swirling chorus. The JC-120's full-range output is animated, rich, and famous for filling a room with a powerful yet pleasing sound. Built-in reverb and vibrato with dedicated front-panel controls round out the JC-120's expressive, tone-shaping palette.
The JC-120's 12 front-panel knobs and dedicated bright switch make it easy to craft a sound on the spot. No matter the musical style, the JC-120 has the flexibility and power to deliver the tone you need.
Two high-performance 12" speakers, each driven by its own 60-watt amplifier, are at the heart of the JC-120's classic chorus sound. The result is soft, lush, and legendary!
There's no mistaking the unique look and heavy-duty construction of the JC-120. Outlined with oversized, industrial-grade studs, top-quality casters, hard-fiber edge protectors, and high-impact corner brackets, the JC-120 is built to stand the test of time.
First introduced way back in 1975, the JC-120 Jazz Chorus is one of the few guitar amps that can truly be called a legend. Roland’s long-standing flagship is universally recognized by pros as the benchmark in clean guitar sound, and its rich tone and famous built-in stereo chorus effect have been heard on countless popular songs over its long history. Now celebrating 40 years of continuous production and counting, the JC-120 remains the undisputed “king of clean,” and the enduring choice of serious guitarists everywhere.
From the beginning, the JC-120 was designed to be the best clean amp ever made. Forty years on, its pure, transparent tonal signature—supported by an integrated stereo amplification system and custom 12-inch speakers—still remains unsurpassed in the guitar world. While other amps have come and gone, the iconic JC clean sound has stood the test of time, relied on by creative players in all genres of music over four decades.
No matter what style you play, the JC-120 has the flexibility and power to deliver the tone you need. It’s an ideal platform for shaping sound with stompbox pedals, and it’s also great with multi-effects, amp modelers, and guitar synths. The rich JC clean tone preserves the character of your basic guitar sound, perfect for hearing the sound created by your devices. And with three-band EQ on each channel, it’s easy to fine-tune your overall tone for any playing space.
To support its timeless sound, the JC-120 features durable, heavy-duty construction for years of reliable operation. Outlined with oversized, industrial-grade studs and equipped with top-quality casters, hard-fiber edge protectors, and high-impact corner brackets, the JC-120 is built to fully withstand the rigors of the road.
Along with its unique clean tone, the JC-120 is equally revered for its impressive Dimensional Space Chorus effect. While commonplace today, the chorus effect was actually first introduced to the world as part of this very amplifier. Operating in true stereo, the JC-120’s chorus still provides a tonal experience like no other, filling the stage with amazingly lush, immersive sound.
The JC-120’s rear panel is filled with connectivity options. There’s an effects loop for patching in mono or stereo effects, and you even have your choice of serial or parallel operation. Line Out jacks provide a convenient mono or stereo feed for sending your sound to a mixing board or recorder. There’s also support for optional footswitches, allowing you to easily turn the amp’s chorus/vibrato, reverb, and distortion effects on/off while performing.
