The ideal portable jazz guitar combo
David Chamberlain 18.12.2017
I am mainly a jazz player. For several years I have been using either a Peavey Classic 30 for larger gigs and an AER Compact 60 for smaller gigs. the latter for reasons of portability. I was never that happy with the sound of either although the Peavey was good for the occasional rock/function gig and the AER was good for electro-acoustic guitar or vocals. Neither worked particularly well for semi-acoustic guitar. I recently bought a Roland JC-40 which sounds excellent but is generally too big for jazz gigs in terms of portability, headroom and appearance on the bandstand. I bought the JC-22 a few weeks ago and have used it on a handful of jazz gigs, some of which were quite loud and some of which were much quieter. It has performed extremely well in every situation so far. It has a very clear sound with plenty of projection. It is very portable and looks perfect onstage with a jazz combo. It outstrips my other amps (including previously owned amps such as a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and a Fender Blues Junior) by a significant margin. I would recommend this amp very highly indeed.

Cleanest amp I've ever owned!
Bjazz_ 17.08.2018
Clean, headroom, responsiveness... It's just all you need from a jazz amp. If you need a small clean (takes a LOT of pedals, btw) amp, this is IT! No more to say. I LOVE it!

a big amp in small appearance
Kapser 04.12.2022
I was really curious about this amp. Won't it be too loud for my home use ? Is the chorus a gimmick I don't need ? Won't I regret not having ordered a Katana ?

I was positively surprised immediately. Some aspects :
- It has a real nice and firm low end wich I didn't expected
- The chorus knobs: This is something totally different than the effect knobs on other amps. It mixes the chorus in the air, by using the stereo speakers. Unique and the nicest chorus you can have. No gimmick at all.
- The bright knob : I like chimey sounds. This is just the knob I needed.
- It has stereo in for stereo pedals. If I want to do a pan tremolo or a stereo delay, this is very easy. Just in one amp.

Apart from this, it had a nice sound. Because of its transparant clean sound it is perfect for pedals. I also use my ampcabsim pedal in front of it. Because it is quite transparent, you can make it easily sound like other amps with such a pedal. In this way it is a bit of a modeling amp too, if you already have ampcab sim pedals like HX stomp, Iridium, ... No really need for Katana models if you have those.
It also sounds good on lower volume, a relief.

I am really satisfied with this amp. It is simple and powerfull. It gives lots of possibilities. Very fast delivery too.

Nice clean
Björn6925 17.02.2018
I bought this amp to use at home with a few pedals and Digitech Trio plus. It takes most pedals really well and sounds surprisingly big for such a small amp. I ended up selling it to finance a few things and use my Yamaha THR at home now and just love it.
