OVERVIEW

A compact amp with a broad sound.

The Rogue SC80R guitar amp delivers a true stereo chorus sound in one compact package with 2-channel switching between a clean and overdriven sound, built-in reverb, and 80W of power.

For years, guitarists have a appreciated the bigger sound that adding a chorus effect brings. The problem with effect pedals though is they can't deliver a true stereo sound unless you've got two amps.

The Rogue SC80R solves that problem by incorporating a true stereo chorus in its preamp section and then pushing the effected sound through two high-fidelty 10" speakers.

Whether it's for jazz or rock, a stereo chorus effectively doubles your guitar sound, making it fuller and more interesting for all styles of music. The tone-shaping controls are extensive in the Rogue SC80R with mid-frequency adjustment that can pinpoint the exact tone you're looking for.

The Rogue SC80R also has controls for dialing in reverb and distortion making it an amp that really can cover it all.

The Rogue SC80R includes an input for connecting a dual footswitch to trigger the stereo chorus or switch between channels. There's also an 1/8" stereo connection for MP3 or CD players and a headphone out for practicing without waking up the neighbors.

FEATURES
  • 80W power section
  • Compact size
  • True stereo chorus
  • Gain control for overdrive
  • 3-band EQ with mid frequency adjustment
  • Built-in reverb

After finally tiring of dragging my Peavy Vypyr back and forth to our practice studio I decided to just leave it there so was looking for an additional practive amp to keep in my bedroom.

This is a completely different type of amp than the Peavy - no modeling/digital effects - but I really wasn't using most of the functionality of that amp for home practice anyway. Basically my criteria for "replacing" it were affordability and a really solid/quiet clean channel that I could coax some nice tones out of.

After reading multiple positive reviews and finding this amp for a nice chunk off (bascially putting it at the same price point at it's 40 watt little brother) I decided to take a chance. I was only vaguely familiar with Rogue as a brand and was a bit dubious about quality.

After playing around with this for a couple weeks now I think I can accurately say that the reviews are largely accurate. The clean channel is quiet, powerful enough, and I have been able to coax some nice tones ouf of it with multiple guitars/pick-up configurations by playing with the tone/eq settings. In fact, some really nice warm, bluesy stuff especially through single pickups.

The second channel is not bad but, perhaps because it's on a carpeted floor in my room and not on a stand like my other amps in my home studio are, has some odd tonal qualities. I have not played with this as much and will amend my review when I do - but for now have found it to be oddly muted sounding - even with the midrange scooped. It's also fairly noisey - it takes quiet a bit of tweaking of the master/volume controls, gain and treble to cut down on the hiss.

As other reviewers have said - the reverb is a bit weak. You have to really push it to get much effect and the depth/quality is just ok. If that is an important element to your playing I would probably suggest looking into a pedal instead.

The chorus, on the other hand, is actually quite good. I have monkeyed around with running my Boss CE-3 through the amp and comparing it to the native system and I have to say that, the variability and range I can get from the pedal aside, the quality of the built in chorus is comparable if not better. For adding some shimmer and depth to the clean channel it is really pretty solid.

In addition to the Vypyr I also have an older Zoom Fire36, a Marshall MG30 and a Marshall MG100hdfx head matched to a Marshall 4X12 cabinet (with an array of pedals) that I use to varying degrees. All solid state (sorry purists) so I can't compare the clean channel of the Roque to any tube amps first hand. Compared to everything I have, however, I give it really high marks as a great practice companion - especially for the price.

If i figure out how to get better tone out of the second channel I will add to my comments. For now I would call it adequate if you want to get a little hairy while practicing but not on par with my other equipment for that purpose.

Now that I've had it a few days & have A/B'd it with my other amps (Peavey VK 212 & Line 6 Spyder 3 75 watt) I want to update my original assessment of this amp. I originally said I liked the tone better than my Line 6. Let's say that they both have their distinct tonal qualities. The Rogue tends to have more coloration of tone than the Line 6, especially in the mids. In my opinion, it lends itself more to the coloration of a tube amp, while the Line 6 is a more sterile solid state sounding amp (cleaner with minimal coloration of tone). Each has it's own distinct qualities, like the differences you find when comparing other brands of amps. As far as the clean channel, I can't say one is better than the other as far as tone, just different. They are both nice & clean, with the Rogue having a little more of a beefier mid range. What sets the Rogue apart, is when you engage the stereo chorus. If you play any music & go from mono to stereo, it just comes alive. That is what this Rogue does well.

As far as the distortion channel, the Line 6 is more versatile in getting a more contemporary voicing. The Rogue has a very distinct tone of it's own with a more limited application. It reminds me of an older tube amp (60's era) with well worn tubes. It is heavily saturated with mids (an almost creamy sound that you would find on the bass end of a wah pedal) which gives you its unique sound. It is a more limited sound than you can get with the Line 6 but like the older tube amps it is unique to itself. It is not a bad tone, but it is more limited in its application. If you don't particularly like it's tone it can be modified by using an effects pedal thru the clean channel.

Overall, I really think this amp is a great value having it's own distinct tonal qualities. I have a feeling that the clean channel (especially in stereo chorus) will lend itself well to an acoustic guitar with electronics. While I do not currently own an acoustic with electronics, it is speculation at this point. Hopefully I can obtain one for my collection shortly and give you a future review.

Great Value For the Money

By John Cupple

from USA

See all my reviews

Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

The amp does have its own distinct sound in my opinion. I'm playing a Squire Tele with EMGs and the clean sound is sweet! The distortion is not bad, mediocre maybe, and more than likely just needs an EQ pedal between the guitar and the amp. REALLY needs an effects loop. I would describe it as the poor man's Roland Jazz Chorus. MP3 in and a 1/8 inch headphones out are nice features. You will need to buy a foot switch. Very well made, built to last a long time.
Chorus, distortion, EQ, and reverb are not bad at all. The only thing missing is an effects loop.
Quality is top notch. It would be my guess that these are made in the same factories as their competitors. Reminds of Peavey build quality, very solid.
Best amp I ever bought in this price range. If you can't play without using an EC Tremolux or some other 2K boutique amp this is not the amp for you.

A Great Little Amp!

By TERRY KIRK

from California

Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

This is my first experience with Rogue and it has greatly surpassed my expectations. This is a great amp and I will gladly recommend it to all of my guitar playing friends.
I bought the SC80R out of curiosity more than need. With 80 watts of power, 2-10in speakers, and true stereo chorus, I just had to hear what it sounded like. I am impressed to say the least. The clean channel is just that, very clean, while the distortion channel will give you any sound from overdrive to heavy metal. The reverb is warm and reminisant of the classic surf sound. The stereo chorus is something you'll never get from a chorus pedal or effect. It has a range from a soft tremolo to an almost vibratto effect. I have a 100W tube stack with a 4X12 cab, and a 60W, 1X15 bass amp. and can't get these sounds without my effects pedals. This little amp is great on it's own. I can get that great Duane Eddy sound, or classic Dick Dale with no added effects. I do wish that it came with the footswitch though. I will be getting one.
The amp is very well built, and good looking. It's not lightweight at over 37 lbs. but I like that. The controls are easily accessable, smooth and responsive, and the directional knobs are easy to see. The power is much more than just a practice amp, and should be suitable for any small venue. I would say the quality was far beyond my expectations.
I got a great price on this amp. (Not the "Stupid Deal", but very close) After hearing the sound, and seeing the quality I have to say that it's a bargain, even without the discount.

Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

I am sure there are better, but for the buck, I got more than my dollars worth.
I bought a Rogue SC80r amp to use at practices, a bang around amp. I set it up for use and let my brother start. I was suprised!! It sounded great!! I plugged in the bass to it and again WOW nice sound.The boys in the band all had to try it, all said the same thing " you got a good amp, at a good price" and "I like this amp"

I got more than I bargained for, and that is rare.
so far so good, only had it a month.
way more than expected, I expected functional, I got fantastic.

Rogue SC80R

Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

Small enough to carry around yet powerful enough. Plenty of special effects. Even works very well with my bass! Saves me from having to carry around 2 amps for most jobs since I play bass and guitar.
Plenty of different tones and effects. Great for small venues.
Very sturdy and not too heavy.
For what it does, the value is outstanding.

Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

I am very happy with this amp. I like the clean tones. I like the overdriven tones. I think this is a great value for the money and performance.
Love the Chorus and Reverb. Overdrive is fat and bassy. Love the mid-frequency adjust on EQ
Heavy construction! Very solid. Like the metal grill with cloth behind it.
80 watts for Stupid Deal pricing was great!

    Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

    I already own the 40 watt model & was blown away by its tone, volume, & versatility. I wanted a little more volume for full band rehearsals so I bought the 80 watt model at an incredible deal center price. I have been playing semi-pro rock for over 30 years & this amplifiers features, flexibility, & power for the cost is just fantastic! The clean channel sparkles & adding the stereo chorus & reverb seals the deal. The crunch channel gives you lean to mean with enough overdrive gain to play solos with the amp standing alone. It has plenty of low end & responds to picking attack really nicely. Bottom Line if you are looking for a great amp for full band rehearsals or even gig, with clean to crunch channel switching,stereo chorus, & reverb. You can't beat the bang for the buck with this amp!

      incredible little amp

      By jeffrey barnaby

      from florida

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Rogue SC80R 80W 2X10 Stereo Chorus Guitar Combo Amp:

      This little thing rocks. I am extremely happy with it. it is not an ampeg, fender, orange, marshall or top brand name amp. but hey, you can buy 4 of these for what you would pay for a brand name, Buy 2, then you will have a back up. Its built well, I am not sure how it will hold to the test of time, but I like the sound, its got good build quality and does what it is supposed to do. what more can you ask for.
      Another thing I would like to mention is how clean this amp sounds on clean.. virtually no background hiss. I was surprised at first, thought the amp was off until I strummed a note.
      80w at 4ohm
      2 - 10" speakers
      stereo chorus
      one input
      mp3 input
      headphone output (cuts off speakers for quiet practice)
      jack for pedal (pedal not included)
      The build quality is good, all the knobs seem solid, I think this amp will hold up for quite a few years. it feels very well made. the only downside is the built in distortion. kinda sounds overmodulated/tinny and run together, but hey, use a good distortion pedal and you will be happy. another thing lacking is the ability to plug in external speakers- at 80 watts you should be able to add more, but hey. it will be good for medium sized venues.
      I think you would be hard pressed to find an amp as powerful with as much full bodied sound for the price. the stereo chorus just makes the sound fuller. I got this on a stupid deal and am amazed at how good it sounds.
