Summary: If you want a great clean, loud sound then this is it. Great built in stereo chorus is second to none. Good reverb. Reliable trouble free service. Jazz players will especially like this clean and true sounding amp. On board distortion is less than exciting so if you want a crunch sound then a pedal would be required. This is the original and the best for what it does.
A distinct, arty, quality sound that will stand out these days.

Summary: Hot solid state action. I'm so over tube amps, and solid state amps trying to sound like tube amps. In your face rock power! Arty rock power. Cuts through and leaves room for everything else. Playing with a Tele and a mxr distortion plus and a Deluxe Memory Man. A real head turning unique exciting sound.
Summary: I played on of these amps about 10 years ago in a music store. It was when I was looking to buy a accoustc electric guitar. I was amazed at the sound of the guitars I tried through this amp! It took 10 years but I finaly got a brand new one a couple weeks ago. It rocks! Buy this amp!
Summary: I have or have owned lots of the major league tube heads and several tube combos over the years. Always wanted to see what the JC-120 hype was about, so scored an old clean one on Ebay. Have to say I have been digging it since the day it arrived. It has tremendous punch, power and headroom. Jazz or country, plug straight in. Blues or rock, pick your pedal and front-load your tone. This amp will respond well, and provide tone and definition to step out and above any mix.
