Is it capable of metal? Is it better amp to pair up with my GT-8 than my peavey classic 50, right now i am looking for metal amp but want a clean sound. My peavey got the clean but not so much the metal.

Any advice?

Roland JC-120 Cannot provide you with a metal tone. I doubt it could even with overdrive pedal.

The GT-8 can help you, but the roland is mainly a amp used for the Effects loop, and it has great jazz tones.

^Seriously? Because on the demo i watch it say it is the best for stompboxes, multieffexts, etc. Hmm... now i guess i got to get one of them VK, peavey XXX or B-52, or save up for a Mark IV.

It's about the cleanest amp in the world, there are literally thousands of better choices - your classic 50 would sound far better with the right use of pedals, and maybe different speakers.

If you want a cheap solid-state that handles overdrive well, the Peavey Bandit is alright.

How about the Valveking? It is that much worst than the Classic or can it do everything plust metal but other than metal it is okay at everything maybe okay at metal too

It is probably best suited for metal but also does classic rick well and has nice cleans

The VK is just more of a spread out classic.
A jack of all trades so to speak (but does mostly everything quite well).
The classic is more for cleans and lower gain tones.
Ask slatsmania about a jazz chorus. He has one. Not sure if he has the 120, but he has a JC.

The JC does NOT do overdrive. Its built-in overdrive is awful, and I didn't find any OD pedals that it liked. Something cheap like the valveking or windsor (even better if you don't need cleans) would be much better.
I didn't like the clean tone either, for what it's worth.

I had one for two years when I played only jazz. I really liked the clean tone but it didn't take overdrive/distortion pedals nearly as well as everyone says it does. I think it's a good amp but I never liked it for anything but crystal cleans.

I prefered it to numerous valve amps that I tried out with it, head-to-head, including a Vox AC30, a Marshal JCM2000 and a Fender Super Twin.

Hmmm....tech 21.....

I don't really want to go solid state amp because of my experience with Spider III, which i was able to return (thank god)

So i will try those other ones, VK or B-52. Though i hope i can get one with 15 watt or 30 watt

My opinion is based on extensive experience with this amp. It takes effects well but NOT dirt. Have you used the amp with distortion or are you just saying what you read on the internet?
