LEGENDARY TONE FOR YOUR HOME

The JC-22 Jazz Chorus delivers Roland's classic JC clean tone and famous Dimensional Space Chorus effect in a compact amp thats 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 theres 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.

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.

The Ultimate Home Amp

For playing and practicing at home, theres 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 its also perfectly suited for advanced gear that employs amp modeling, multi-effects, and/or synth capabilities.

Connect and Control

The JC-22s rear panel is filled with connectivity options. Theres 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. Theres also support for optional footswitches, which allow you to turn the JC-22s chorus and reverb effects on/off while playing.

Great amp. The speakers are very good even though they are only 6.5", they sound amazing. Nice and compact size, perfect for the bedroom or home and even a small venue. It gets louder than you expect when you turn it up. The clean signal takes pedals very well and you don't have to worry about tubes. The JC has been around for a long time, these things are bulletproof and mastered. You can't go wrong with this, pairs up well with all guitars. My only suggestion is if you run an overdrive or distortion pedal into it, turn the bright switch off. If you don't, it will sound like a swarm of bees; these amps are bright have lots and lots of treble.

Bought this amp to go with my Epiphone Joe Pass for playing chord melody jazz. It's a perfect match. I had the guitar for a while, but wasn't getting the "sound" I wanted out of my existing amp. After getting the JC-22 it only took a few minutes to dial in the sound I was missing. As with other styles of guitar, having the right amp makes a difference. This amp is low wattage, but perfect for home use or a small quiet venue. A decent guitar, a set of flat wounds, and a jazz chorus amp - it doesn't get any better.

This is a nice portable clean sound . The chorus sound is awesome and the reverb is nice and deep.A true stereo amp that is fairly loud . A very clean sounding amp.It is apples and oranges with say a fender blues jr. I don't care for its overdriven sound. It may be ok with a distortion or a fuzz but I'd use a different amp for rock. The 6.5 inch speakers are small . If I bought another, I would go for the JC40

Would check out pros and style they play before purchasing. Fender makes a similar closed back ? Called princeton. Owned 70's 120 . Sold maybe 2010. These are really, really well made almost industrial standard amps from my experience. Still want to try the other ones and that four by twelve they built!
