Hey, I'm looking for a new amp and believe one of the Roland JC-22 or JC-40 will fit the bill as I like a clean guitar. I will be pairing the amp with my Strat and with a few pedals like the Cali76 compressor, the Hudson Broadcast for dirt, and the Strymon Flint for reverb and trem. I like the JC series because I like a clean sound. Before this I tried a Fender Princeton '65 but didn't like how it broke up so easily once the tubes got hot. It's also a pricey amp so I returned it. I'll be playing and recording mostly in my apartment so the JC-22 seems the most logical choice. Certainly, as a smaller amp, it'll be much easier to fit it around the place. Also, from a loudness perspective, it will be plenty loud for the volumes that I'll be playing at. On the other hand, the JC-40 is probably overkill for me. Certainly, similar to the Princeton, I'll be mostly playing it at 1-3 volume. It's obviously also bigger and a bit heavier (although not much). The JC-22 is probably the smart choice for me. However, I am tempted by the JC-40 because it's sound is obviously less boxy and more clear than the JC-22. Although it's bigger than I'd like, I'm looking for an amp that'll be mine for a while so I'm looking to get the 'right' amp versus make decisions based on convenience. I'm also mindful that it might be a bit weird having a small/cheaper amp when I otherwise have 'nice' gear. That said, the JC-22 does have a certain presence that small amps have. It's not a growl per se, as it's a clean amp, but the smaller aspect of the amp does have a certain something to it - probably why people sometimes like recording with them. Put simply, I can't decide if to go for the larger JC-40, which is the better sounding of the amp, or if the JC-22 represents a sweet spot for me of size and great sound, albeit not as great. Can anyone help steer me here please?
