Item specifics

Condition: Used  

Vintage 1978  ROLAND JC-160

4x10 World Music Amplifier

No longer required in the studio as I need the space. (I actually own 2 of these great amps.)

Chorus  to die for ! the best amp ever made ! used by Robert Smith of 'the Cure'

Ultra rare ! find another first issue model ! These have vastly different circuitry to the later models with the brightness switch ! This is far warmer and the chorus (x-pattern) is so  much more organic and rich !

Stupidly rare amps and to find a '78 240V UK power model is a dream !

Excellent, fully functional condition. Miles beter than any others I have seen over the years  !

It could be years before you come across another one !

Comes with the original footswitch and the original 'Roland Musical speakers' which sound vastly superior to the later black back versions.

Don't compare the JC-120 to this amp !  This totally blows them away I kid you not ! Less Boxy sounding and less shrill / piercing. This has a very warm and rich clean tone !  Also the chorus is way better and set out in a unique X-PATTERN !! Yes ! for massive spread !  The 4x10 set up gives far more punch and rounded bottom end ! The original World Music Amplifier ! A true classic and highly collectable ! will only increase in value over the years ! Totally reliable and will provide great trouble free service for many years to come !

Local Pickup only due to value, collectability and weight.  Amp is located near Chichester in West Sussex.

Cash on collection only as Paypal require proof of postage to be covered under their seller protection policy.

I will not risk this amp with ANY courier !

bid with confidence ! I have 100% positive feedback and intend to keep it that way ....

Thanks for looking,
