JC-22 Jazz Chorus Guitar Amplifier - Legendary Tone for Your Home

Unread post by Saul » Thu Oct 27, 2016 12:36 pm

Roland JC-22.png
The JC-22 Jazz Chorus delivers Roland’s classic JC clean tone and famous Dimensional Space Chorus effect in a compact amp that’s perfect for playing at home. Offering the essential features of the popular JC-40 in an even more scaled-down size, this versatile stereo amp is also great for intimate performances and recording. A high-quality reverb complements the onboard chorus, and there’s also a stereo input on the front panel for plugging in modelers, multi-effects, and stereo stomps. Built to the same standards of sound and durability that the long-running amp series is noted for, the JC-22 makes legendary JC tone more accessible than ever.
  • Legendary Roland JC clean tone in an ultra-compact combo
    Stereo 30-watt amp with two 6.5-inch speakers
    Stereo input for true stereo sound with modelers and stereo effects pedals
    Signature Dimensional Space Chorus effect for expansive stereo sound
    High-quality reverb effect
    Footswitch jacks for turning onboard effects on/off
    Stereo effects loop for connecting external effects
Iconic JC Clean Tone and Built-In Effects
Around the world, the Roland JC series is renowned as the benchmark in clean guitar amplification. With the JC-22, you can now have that authentic tone in a light, compact package. Two independent power amps and custom-designed speakers deliver the genuine clean sound of the larger JC amps, while the trademark Dimensional Space Chorus effect fills the room with immersive 3D sound. The amp also includes a great-sounding reverb that operates in true stereo for rich, expansive tone.

Connect and Control
The JC-22’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 series or parallel operation. Line Out jacks give you a convenient direct feed to a mixing console or recorder, while plugging into the Headphones jack automatically mutes the onboard speakers for quiet practice sessions with phones. There’s also support for optional footswitches, which allow you to turn the JC-22’s chorus and reverb effects on/off while playing.

The Ultimate Home Amp
For playing and practicing at home, there’s no better platform than the JC-22. Its classic clean tone is ideal for use with all types of stompbox pedals, and you can even plug in stereo effects devices for wide, inspiring sound. The JC-22 works great with stereo-capable delay, reverb, and modulation pedals, and it’s also perfectly suited for advanced gear that employs amp modeling, multi-effects, and/or synth capabilities.

I think it deserves a couple of video/sound clips. :wink: I recommend headphones, to enjoy the STEREO sound. 8)



Any Police fans out there ? "Roxanne" is played in the beginning of the second video. ((i))

Well there's no denying the VR4000 is a nice bit of kit and...if you can find one, can be picked up for a lot less than the price of a Roland JC-22 however the Roland JC is one of those amps I have always loved. I had a JC-120 for a while and no other amp has really had quite the same effect on me since then. The other thing of course is these days I have no need of a large amp...well actually I don't need one at all as I can go through my Focusrite into amp modeling software and since I never play outside my living room that does fine. Still, you can't beat a bit of nice hardware so who knows? ;)

I was kidding of course. The JC series are the benchmark for clean and lush chorus tones. They are so 3 dimensional. I played one of the new jc40s in store a few months ago and it was very hard to leave it at the store.

Must admit I have a real itch to buy a JC but I also need to buy a couple more guitars first. I have a feeling it won't be too long before a JC graces the living room though ;) Although having said that I also like the new Line 6 Spyder V range. Completely different amp of course but I'm a bit of a musical butterfly...a bit all over the place and trying as many things as I can :lol:

I play a Jazz Chorus in Jazz band and they can put most tubes to shame. Like the compact design.
