Peavey JS 50w Head?

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if Peavey ever released a 50w JSX (Satriani) head? I saw some info and video from the 2009 NAMM show, but I have never seen one for sale before. Any idea if these ever came out or if they were scrapped?

Also, does anyone know if Marshall is working on a Satriani amp, or is he just using a regular Marshall model?

Thanks,
BJR

The JSX50 never saw the light of day since he split with Peavey within months of its announcement. I've heard rumors that he's working on an amp with Marshall but whether that will be a production model remain to be seen. I also wouldn't be surprised if something turned up with Vox since he's already got the pedal deal with them, but that's pure speculation.

It really sucks that Joe didn't stay with Peavey.

I realize that he wanted something different that Peavey might not have been able to give him, but just because his name is all over the JSX line they have to stop it?

The JSX is such a high quality amp, and pretty fairly priced too. They should find some way to keep it in production and release the 50w head too.

I never was really into marshall amps, but I guess Joe knows what he wants. My favorite tone of his though is from right when he started using the JSX.

Re: Peavey JS 50w Head?

I've got the JSX 120w head. From what I gathered from Peavey it was just a different take on their Triple XXX amp(which Satriani really liked). Which is still in their line up. I'm sure Peavey will continue to produce it(JSX), though there wasn't a huge demand for it, like the Triple XXX. However, they re-badged the 5150 and sold it under a different name. So it's possible for them to do the same with the JSX. Only reason I wouldn't see it happen is because of the Triple XXX.

It would be interesting to see if Joe is going to stick with both. He might use a Marshall Rig for the Chickenfoot stuff and keep his JSX rig for his solo stuff. I guess more details will be unfolded in the news few weeks since he's about to go into the studio to record a new album.

...and both will be running on a clean channel with a distortion pedal!

I was interested in that head too. Guess I'll have to be happy with my Mini Colossal!
