Roland JC-40 Overview
Featuring true stereo capabilities housed within a single unit, the Roland JC-40 is a 40W 2x10" combo amplifier designed to deliver clean tone to electric guitar. The unit features a three-band tone-stack and a bright switch, as well as distortion, reverb, chorus/vibrato capability. A set of dual inputs can be used for stereo purposes, such as connecting a stereo-output effects unit, or a guitar or synth with stereo output.
Turn your attention to the back of the amp and you'll notice multiple options for connectivity: An effects loop (switchable between series and parallel) will allow you to patch in stereo effects, while dual line outputs provide a convenient stereo feed into mixers, PAs, or recorders. You can achieve silent stereo practicing using the 1/4" headphone jack on the front panel.
With the addition of a footswitch (available separately) you can enable the on-board chorus/vibrato, reverb, and distortion settings at the tap of a toe.
