I need a clean tone amp for half the cost. What is an amp similar to the Roland JC-120 but for a better price?

Look into a Hot Rod Deluxe, I guess.
It all comes down to what tone exactly you want (a Vox sounds different than a Fender which in turn sounds different to a JC, and so on). Also depends on your exact budget.

Might also look into a used JC-120, they're decently common and seem solid enough, I wouldn't mind getting an old used one.
HRD and Roland Cube 60. Both do clean really well.
