      Comments about Roland GA-212 2X12 200W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

      Like most solid state amps, this amp produces a good clean tone. Where solid state amps tend to fall apart is the crunch tone. This one has a much better crunch tone than any other solid state amp I've heard. Absolutely adequate for a professional, working musician. Controls, functions, etc, are excellent.

        Bought this amp as a "stupid deal of the day" I have been shopping around, and when I saw this amp for almost half the original cost I jumped on it; although it has a little more power than I need, I knew I had to get it. So glad I did; great sound, even at low volume. Very simple to use. You won't regret buying it. Also, MF (as always) Got it to me in just a few days.

          Comments about Roland GA-212 2X12 200W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

          Got this on Stupid Deal of the Day and this purchase was anything but stupid. About the only negative I can think of is that the foot controller does not come with this amp and its usefulness as an advertised stage amp is limited without said foot controller.

          This amp is LOUD. It sounds alright at lower volumes but really screams when turned up. The variable gain and volume controls make it a snap to fine tune the tone by ear. There are 4 channels to store presets plus a manual channel, basically making 5 stores total. Also the boost, mid-boost, effects loops 1 and 2 and reverb can all be turned on/off via the foot switch. 2 expression pedals can be hooked up to the foot switch to independently control both gain and volume on the fly making for some VERY interesting effects.

          With 2 effects loop channels, it is possible to hook up 2 entirely different external pedal boards which can both be set to run in series or parallel. The 4 cable method works great if you happen to have an RP1000 or similar. The amp sound is so versatile that I find myself not using other effects or pedals. Plug in direct and let er rip!

          Built like a tank. Darn good thing it comes with casters as it is HEAVY. I doubt I'll ever have the chance but there is even a way to link 2 of these beasts and control both through the one foot switch. As if 200W isn't loud enough, 400W would be crazy. Looks pro with heavy gauge grill and otherwise Spartan look.

          There is a 1/4" through port for a tuner, which is one thing that seems like it would have been easy to build in to this amp. The LED indicators on each dial are both functional and cool looking as they move when channels are changed.

          Out of all the controls, the Voicing button seems to have the least effect. Seems to modify EQ just a tad, not very discernable to my ears. Reverb quality is very good, if not excellent. Both Presence and Reverb have a wide range of adjustment.

          Think of this as a digital amp that is controlled more like an analog amp. No screens to cycle through, no complex button sequences to remember, etc. Personally I'm glad to see this trend back toward more analog feel.

          I would purchase again. I might even purchase a GA-112 for smaller venues, practice or stereo chorus use. Really wonder what a pair of linked GA-112 would sound like vs. a GA-212? My lead guitar player rocks a Mesa Boogie which is held in very high esteem - I'd stack this Roland up against it any day.

              Comments about Roland GA-212 2X12 200W Guitar Combo Amplifier:

              This is the quietest yet most powerful combo that I have ever used. This amp is perfect for gigging with yet can be tamed enough to use in the home. Very versitile if you are looking for a broad range of guitar tones with easy access to any of them. Expect to use your foot pedals if you want anything beyond that. This was designed to give you great amp tones, not imitations of other amps. The settings are very responsive to your guitars input volume so it is easy to clean up a distorted sound by just rolling down the guitar volume. Not so much a volume loss but more of a loss of gain. Since making this purchase I have put two of my other combo amps up for sale. They are good amps but do not compare with the sound that I am getting from the Roland GA212. Go play though one of these and you will see and hear the quality. Worth every penny. The foot controller is a must if you plan on using this to gig with.

                    This amp replaced my old Yamaha JX 65 80's amp. This one is super clean with my acoustic, and great for leads on my electric. Only drawback is that it weighs 70 lbs. Real easy to use as well.

                    THIS AMP WILL LITERALLY CAUSE ME TO SELL A BUNCH OF MY OTHER AMPS. THE BACKLIT DIALS, THE PROGRESSIVE GAIN STAGES AND BOOST. THIS AMP HAS IT ALL, PLUS IT BUILT FOR THE GIGGING MUSICIAN. BUT IT EASILY DO STUDIO AND SESSION WORK TOO. THIS IS UNBELIEVEABLE AND TOTALLY WORTH MORE THAN THEY'RE ASKING, SERIOUSLY! I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BUY ANOTHER ONE. AS A MATTER OF FACT, I WILL BUY A SCOND ONE JUST BECAUSE I AM SURE THE PRICE WILL GO UP DUE TO SALES WHEN PEOPLE CATCH ON.
