Re: New Marshall JVM410 is going away - what should I get?

Carvins are not available in Norway - but if that thing sounds as good as it promises its really a lot of amp for the money.

From the Carvin page I found a Guitar Player review of the Carvin, the Engl Invader (which I wanted but could not aford) and the Marshall JVM. (http://www.guitarplayer.com/article/...s/jan-08/33149)

Seems a bit strange (and unfair) but both the Marshall and Engl are substatially cheaper in the states than here in Norway/Europe. That goes specially for the Engl amp which is about 70% more expensive than the JVM. I payed about 1915 USD for the JVM, while a Engl would have costed me about 3280 USD.

Mine wasn't any noiseier than a Bogner XTC. Get a noisegate, ISP decimator prorack g = silence.

Yeah - the only problem is that ISP decimator prorack g = a lot of cash

The prorack is more than 1/3 of the price of the JVM - and there's no way I'll have that kind of cash to spare in a while. But I guess the new ISP G string could also help a lot: http://www.isptechnologies.com/decimatorGpedal.htm

How do you find the JSX for 'heavy' palm muted rhythm? I tried it and for some reason found the 6505+ to be much better suited, maybe I didnt spend enough time with the JSX.

Re: New Marshall JVM410 is going away - what should I get?

i tried the jsx and while i do agree it is versatile, didn't feel it sounded inherently better than my vintage modern. it sounded ok. maybe i expected more after the amount of hype i've read on this board, but i didn't see what the big fuss was about. definitely a decent amp, but i've heard better gain sounds. keep in mind i'm a reformed metal player, and look more for slightly more than medium gain nowadays.

i will say i dug the fact that it had 2 inputs and that even the ultra channel could be tamed down to crunch channel levels (by basically turning the gain down to 1 or 2), but i wasn't blown away by the tone. it's too bad too because it was on clearance for $1000, which seemed like a great price (and at guitar center no less). i will probably go back and give it another go round in the future, see if my opinion changes.

Re: New Marshall JVM410 is going away - what should I get?

Ok - I'm lovin the JVM more and more. Seems like not is the tone dramatically improving as the amp gets played in, but the feedback problems are backing of as well.

And as for versatillity - I don't think you can get much better than this amp.

Now I'm thinking this was not a very bad buy after all

Especially since you can order a new JVM from soundstore UK including shipping for 1050 Euros now... So reselling prices will hit bottom soonish....

The JSX is by no means a "Metal" amp (consider who created it). With that being said, you can certainly get any tone out of it that you would want (to a degree) and then enhance it with a stomp box or two, if needed. There have been times I've walked into a GC and I've heard people getting metallica-like tones out of a JSX combo, so food for thought. Personally, I haven't been into the metal sound in a long long time. For some reason, I've been focused on getting a nice tone that allows for screams here and there but nothing too crazy. For me, the JSX satisfies that craving and allows me to explore other sounds without having anything hooked into it.

I hope this helps

Jimmy

Check out the Screamer 50. It sounds like exactly what you want

I've got one and I'll never need another amp again.

The JVM is an excellent head.

The squealing does sound like a microphonic tube. I have one and it doesn't squeal at all. Would not swap that thing for any other head, certainly NOT for a JSX. Have one of these too.

The JVM is a keeper now!!! Awesome head in every way. I'm very happy I did not manage to sell it before finding out.
