Marshall JVM arrived today! (pics!)

After saying I was going to buy one for ages, I finally took the plunge!


I have to say this thing sounds fantastic. The first thing i noticed was how much crunch was available in the midrange - having used Mesa for the last few years i'd be so used to a smooth midrange, but this thing really rocks!

I was pretty surprised how well the controls react too, by lowering the gain I was able to smooth the whole tone out. Everything reacts as you'd expect- which was a bit surprising to me having used a TriAxis for the last year or so .

The footswitch is excellent, though I'll quite likely be using my G-System to control it instead. The gain stage switches are excellent too, you can really hear the extra valves being brought into the circuit.

I'll comment more over the next few days as I play around with it, but I have a feeling it wont be long until the TriAxis is on the bay .

Group photo!

Does the JP have Piezos and if so can you use it through the JVM?

It sounds fantastic, it's also got me loving my DS1 pedal again, it sounds sooo creamy as a lead boost!

evilTwin, yeah the piezos work fine though the JVM. Its a standard mono cable, and you can switch to the piezos by just flicking the switch on the top horn. I think they sound great though the amp, though I'd imagine they'd be even better though a real acoustic amp.

Nice stuff. I've heard that the JVMs are quite amazing, and one of the best things to come from Marshall in a fair while. That was from a Mesa owner at the local music store.

I'll post some clips during the week! Its my first *real* Marshall, my first amp was a horrible Marshall practice amp (the one before they brought in the MG series...) and I've had an AVT Valvestate too. This is clearly in a whole new class though .

I'm playing with the crunch channel at the mo, supposed to be the JCM800 mode. With my OD808 and DS1 on at the same time I'm getting an awesome smooth lead sound, something like Andy Timmons' tone! It kills!!!

You know, I cant remember where i got the Jem . I'm sure it'll come back to me though . She sounds fantastic through the Marshall though!!

My G-system fourth preset is only reverb . Nice setup looks alot like mine, add a wah wah and you got my setup. I got the JCM2000 DSL100.

Cool . I really like the G-System, i'd be lost without it. Even though I don't use much more than the delays and reverb, its so easy to set up.

I use a Bad Horsie or 535Q wah (not in the photo, I didn't have time to connect them up while setting up the new amp), I'm pretty undecided over which i prefer.

I'm planning on building a pedal board over the next week or so, i really need to sort out my pedals and wiring as they're a bit of a mess!
