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.
