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.

        I love this amp. Its loud and has a great sound. It really annoys my brother when I turn it all the way up, and he is a few rooms away from me. It has multiple effects on it to get the sound you want.

          I bought this amp on stupid deal of the day, it was crazy cheap, so cheap, I didn't expect much, it has surpassed my expectations, it sounds pretty good, plenty good enough for a practice amp, sounds great with an acoustic guitar too!! however, for some reason you have to turn mine on and leave your guitar plugged in for about 15 minutes before it sounds worth 15 cents.. It cracks and buzzes and fizzies until then..... That is very annoying...

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

          This will get you by quite nicely as an amp, but don't plan on using the reverb...it's awful! The distortion channel, however, is quite nice, to my surprise. This is basically an amp that you'll want to either use for clean OR for distorted. As cheap as it is, I'd buy two and use an a/b switcher. But use a decent reverb. This one is really not usable. Chorus is decent and is TRUE stereo chorus. Volume drops when using the chorus, but that's to be expected. Overall, a great buy for the money. Get two and you'll be set. Wish it had a line out, but it is what it is and that ain't bad!

          I have the Roque SC40R, and was so impressed with that little package, I thought I'd give the 80w a try. As 1 previous reviewer noted, even without any input source plugged in, the 2 SC80R that I've tried produces a very low, but equally very annoying hum. I have tried different power sources, but to no avail. I sent both back, as I found the hum unacceptable. I'll stick with the little SC40R!

                I wasn't really blown away by the sound, like one reviewer stated heavy on the bass will rattle the speakers, but for the money it's a great little amp. I get great sound when I use my line 6 mobile pod and Ipad to simulate different amps. When this one wears out, hopefully in ten years or so, I will buy another one.

                  This is a decent little amp. I debated buying this, but I'm glad I did. As I noted, the speakers are not strong enough to keep up with the amp, in my opinion. They tend to float when using a deeper, bassy tone. Otherwise, its just fine. Instead of returning it, I'm going to upgrade the speakers.

                  Incidentally, the amp weighs 37 pounds. I could not find one source, even calling musicians friend, that could provide that number for me. I didn't find out till I opened the box.

                  I like the sound of this rogue amp. Simple to use and would work for bands and home use. Powerful and sounds good, but the reverb could be better. I just bought mine the other day and im happy with it. Could not wait to try it out. I like the chorus and that works very well. Everything else is what i expected for the price it was. I use all kinds of guitars in this amp and have been playing music for thirty years.I like the way its made and its not real heavy to carry around. Its a good all around amp for what ever you want to use it for. Never had a rogue amp before and it was better than i thought it would ever be.

                  I like this amp for the money - I bought the warranty because it was affordable. It does develop a buzz after about 1/2 hr use. I will probably have to send it back because I want to record with it. The stereo effect is awesome. Tone is awesome. I wish I had the option to use headphones out for line out without turning off the speakers.
