Product Description

Featuring legendary stereo tone with modern innovation, the JC40 meets the needs of today's players. 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.

Like the flagship JC-120 amp that it’s based on, 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 today’s musicians.

Roland JC40 Jazz Chorus Guitar Amplifier 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
JC Clean: The Benchmark in Clean Guitar Tone
For 40 years, players around the world have revered the iconic clean voice and huge stereo sound of the JC-120 Jazz Chorus amplifier. With the JC-40, you can now enjoy this genuine, industry-standard tone in a scaled-down amp with innovative modern refinements. Two independent power amps and custom-designed 10-inch speakers deliver punchy stereo sound that won't get buried in the band, while durable, road-tough construction ensures years of reliable operation on stage and in the studio.

Famous Stereo Chorus and Other Effects
Beyond its stellar clean tone, the JC-40 includes onboard effects, all newly refreshed for enhanced performance. The trademark Dimensional Space Chorus stereo effect fills the stage with immersive 3D sound, and now offers selectable fixed or manual modes for increased tonal range. Renewed vibrato and reverb effects are on hand, and both operate in stereo for rich, deep performance. There’s built-in distortion as well, updated with a smooth, satisfying tone that’s great for all types of music.

Stereo Input for Multi-Effects, Modelers, and Synths
With its front-panel stereo input, the JC-40 allows players who use stereo effects devices to achieve wide, inspiring sound without having to carry around two separate amps. The amp’s rich clean tone lets you get the most out of external stereo pedals like delays, reverbs, and various modulation effects. It’s also perfectly suited for advanced gear that employs amp modeling, multi-effects, and/or synth capabilities, such as the GT-100, GP-10, and ME-80 from BOSS and GR-55 guitar synth from Roland.

Ideal for Pedal-Based Players
If you create your sound with stompbox pedals, there’s no better platform than the classic JC clean amp. The rich, neutral sound won’t color your basic guitar tone, perfect for hearing exactly what your pedals put out.

Get Connected
The JC-40’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 give you a convenient mono or stereo feed to a mixing board or recorder, while the headphones jack is great for quiet practicing with your setup late at night or on the road. There’s also support for optional footswitches, allowing you to easily turn the JC-40’s chorus/vibrato, reverb, and distortion effects on/off while performing.

Product Review

Upside: The Chorus is gorgeous, as I would expect. Both the Fixed Chorus and Custom Settings are glorious, as only a Jazz Chorus can be. Downsides: A. This is a bright amp. I saw this in reviews, but just did not get it. It is bright, Bright, BRIGHT... I have never used an amp with the Bass and Mid-range turned up higher than the Treble. But it is absolutely essential on this unit. I cannot stress enough how Bright this unit is. almost as if someone left the standard Treble ranges shelved and only put on a control for the Presence. B. This amp is not really as loud as I was expecting. not a good fit for large stage work if used by itself. However, if I run out of the Stereo outputs and into the Power Amp in on my Peavey Stereo Chorus 212, it not only takes care of the volume issue, it helps with the Brightness. C. Alas... there is no help for the Digital Reverb. it is so horrible that I will have to either send this unit back or invest in an outboard Spring Reverb unit. I cannot stress how absolutely wrong the Reverb on this unit is.

Game Changer

Product Review

I was a bit skeptical about getting a solid state amp at first as I’ve always had tube amps. I travel with a band a lot throughout the year and my Fender 4x10 was becoming a pain to transport everywhere. I wanted something lighter but that could also deliver the tone I desired. I looked at getting a smaller tube amp at first until I came across this amp. I did a lot of research online before purchasing and everywhere I looked the general consensus was that this amp is a game changer. I run my pedalboard through this amp and my sounds come alive just as much as a tube amp. The tone it delivers is smooth yet powerful. The onboard distortion sounds very much alive. The reverb, chorus and vibrato instantly adds a lush quality to the sound and are easy to use. I highly recommend this amp to anyone whether you’re on tour or just in your bedroom.

first of all the Roland jc40 is priced excellently.

Product Review

the jc40 comes off as a 1000$ amp. The tonal shapes available are vast. Thou it's not advertised as a singer song writer amp it very much is. The greatwat aspect of the amp is that it's voiced with 2 10inch speakers ,,,,one dry one wet,,,,setting of a very aural mix. It has four of the best effects onboard,,,,reverb chorus distortion and verbrato,,,,with speed and depth adjusments in chorus and verbrato. It the greatest amp for studio or small to mid gigs. It has a very clear overall tone excellent for adding effect pedals. In summation the best amp I ever played

Outstanding value

Product Review

Bought this amplifier to use in a wet/dry rig with a 30 watt tube amp. It was selected for its clean tones and the brilliant way the fx loop presents my delay.

Bang for the buck!

Product Review

All the tone, bells and whistles of the big brother JC120 without the weight. Biggest bonus is that you can play at home at a low volume, or in the club mic'd and it sounds fantastic! Roland has really done a good job fixing the distortion channel too, it sounds amazing. Great pedal platform amp. Paired with AMS you can't go wrong!

I love this amp. Easy to take to a gig with enough power and oomph for a small venue and works great when mic’d Into a house system for medium to large venues. Plays well with my Boss GT-100 guitar multi-effects processor. Lots of value here for the price!!

Fantastic Chorus and Great Clean Tones

Product Review

This JC40 amp has superb clean tones and adding the stereo chorus really delivers some delicious sounds. The Reverb is matched well with this amp and the weight of the amp is a pleasant relief for a player’s back. True Stereo Chorus for this price and stellar clean tones equals a great deal!
