Sounds like there is a pretty decent fix for that, which is damn good to know.
...While I certainly don't play enough to justify 2 amps and an ABY box, if I were ever at that level, I'd be inclined to go with a JC as the clean half, no question about that. It's just good to know that the other ones made can do it with the same gusto...
John McGeoch regularly ran a JC/Marshall split rig, both live and in the studio.Yes! Roland JCs deserve more love.
They are great choices for Dry/Wet setup...
I agree.1. Heavy? The JC120 yes. The JC-77 is 42lb for an 80w powerhouse with a real spring reverb and two 10" speakers. I just played an outdoor unmic'd show on mine and never had it over 1/2 on the volume dial. My JC40 which is a 50w powerhouse with digital reverb, but still a 2x10 weighs only 34lb. I just don't get the "heavy" comments.
You Sir are a gentleman, a scholar and a genius!!!
Yeah, and then her bassist/lover Jaco Pastorius took it over. That's the origin of the "chorusy" bass sound that evolved up through the late 70s/early 80s (Peter Hook, anyone)?The JC-77 is the perfect one, IMHO. Grab and go, all the tone of the 120.
A Strat > DynaComp > JC w/chorus on is instant '80s.
I used to get really good OD tones with the 77 and a Rat.
Interesting JC fact - Joni Mitchell was instrumental in the development of that amp, as she wanted the built-in chorus to help fill out the sound of her jazz box she was using around then.
