  • I think I want a JC-120

    I have always loved the shimmery stereo sound - and they are really loud but clean!

    I just need a roady to carry it around for me. Or put a hydraulic lift in my truck- the kind people put those little scooters on.  And a motorized cart for it.

    F*** 'em if they can't take a joke!

    IIRC, those beasts are about 60-65#, about the same as a Twin Reverb.

    My Vibrolux Reverb is ~40#, and I rarely take that out anymore unless we are on a big festival stage...the BJs are ~30#, and the Super Champ XD is ~25#...guess which one is going to the gigs lately?

    If you really like the Roland JC120, put casters on it....and get one of those aluminum motorcycle ramps

      Great amps! I'd own one and a Twin too, if I had a roadie.

    The big Cubes sound almost as good. Great JC model. Plus some good Tubey tones. Not so great for acoustic tho.

      Yeah, I'd like to try a Cube 80XL and see what it sounds like with my guitar. Guitar Center Reno doesn't stock them tho.

    For what it's worth.. I owned one for years. I paired it with my American Strat and the clean tones along with the reverb and chorus sounded so amazing. Roland has it's sound down! And yes, mine had casters on it. It was a heavy beast.
