FOUR DECADES OF EXCEPTIONAL SOUND
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 recognised 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.

FEATURES

  • Legendary flagship of the Roland Jazz Chorus series since 1975
  • Historic “JC clean” tone and signature Dimensional Space Chorus effect
  • Powerful 120-watt stereo amp with two 12-inch “silver cone” speakers
  • Two input channels (Normal and Effect), each with three-band EQ and bright on/off
  • Built-in vibrato, distortion, and authentic spring reverb
  • Footswitch jacks for turning onboard effects on/off while performing
  • Stereo effects loop for connecting external effects

An Icon in the History of Guitar Tone
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.

Great with Pedals, Multi-Effects, and Amp Modellers
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 modellers, 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.

The Original Stereo Chorus Effect
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.

Versatile Connectivity
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.

Although we are not authorised to determine if any repair is covered under warranty, if the item was purchased through World of Music, then we are often the best people to facilitate the claim for you and will do so as timely as possible. Warranty does not apply to cosmetic damage or faults that are a result of user neglect. Although your mate is really handy with a soldering iron, any product modification or home repair will also result in a void warranty.

Quite often, something perceived as a fault is as simple as a faulty cable or power issue so we always suggest checking over Frequently Asked Questions on the manufacturer website first. It can be a helpful approach to getting to the bottom of a problem and save you a lot of time in getting your gear back up and running!
