Roland JC-01: classic amp design meets wireless audio.

NAMM 2016: We've already seen Marshall release its own amp-styled Bluetooth speaker, and now Roland has done the same.

Featuring a Jazz Chorus-inspired design, the JC-01 promises "clear and natural sound in a rugged design that will stand up to years of everyday mobile use". There's a built-in rechargeable battery and stereo speakers, plus a 3-band EQ for tonal adjustment.

The JC-01 will be available from February priced at £149. Find out more on the Roland website.
