Jazz Chorus Guitar Amplifier

Celebrating Three Decades of a Classic

Celebrating Three Decades of a Classic

In 1975, Roland welcomed the arrival of the first JC-120. A revolution in guitar amplifier technology, the JC-120 Jazz Chorus looked and sounded like no other amp. Thirty 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.

World-Famous Tone

Roland’s Jazz Chorus amplifiers are legendary for their clean, sparkling sound and true-stereo swirling chorus. The JC’s full-range output is animated and 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’s expressive, tone-shaping palette.

Flexible Hands-On Control

The JC-120’s 12 front-panel knobs, plus 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.

Legendary Chorus

Two high-performance 12" speakers, each driven by its own 60W amplifier, are at the heart of the JC’s classic chorus sound. The result is soft, lush, and legendary!

Heavy-Duty Design

There’s no mistaking the unique look and heavy-duty construction of the JC-120. Outlined with oversized, industrial-grade studs, and with top-quality casters, hard-fiber edge protectors, and high-impact corner brackets, the JC-120 is built to stand the test of time.
