Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Hi, after a couple of months with the AxeFx, I cannot be happier. I sincerely think it is not the typical self justification of an expensive gear, just an honest conclusion. I own three 100W Marshalls and two 4x12s, and barely play guitar thru them anymore. As a bedroom player, that gadget is extrem...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Got it! I haven't had any other of the previous iterations of the machine but this III is unbeliavable. My fear was that, not being a great tone dialer, it would cost me lots of time to get nice sounds .... far from reality, it is really easy. Yet no plans to sell my Marshall heads, but being mostly...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

Well, just ordered the Axe Fx III. All demos so far are just stunning, and I want to give it a try, have 30 days to return it, or always can sell it afterwards. I play 99% percent of the time alone, and never have a chance to record because never like my tone, I do when playing with amps, not record...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I am on the waiting list for the Axe FX III here in Europe, and even if I finally buy it, I don´t think would sell my Marshalls, I´m probably too sentimental .... or I just don´t need the money for now. As a bedroom player, really appreciate the convenience of the new Digital era. Most of my time pl...

Re: Dream Marshall " Successor of Marshall JVM '

I would say my perfect Marshall would be a JVM 410 with:

- External BIAS control, or AutoBIAS like the YJM
- External Negative Feedback Control
- Incorporated EQ, a la Mesa Mark V
- Choke by default
- Some switchable mods (plexi cap, for example)
- A more aggressive Crunch Channel o RED mode

Kind of, JTM (the first Marshall) stands for James and Terrry Marshall:

Re: JVM410H ....need affordable reliable backup amp

You can always connect a cabinet of more than 8 Ohm, it wont be so loud, that is it: https://www.gollihurmusic.com/faq/31-OHMS_AND_IMPEDANCE_FROM_THE_OUTPUT_SPEAKER_PERSPECTIVE.html This applies for SS amps only! so you can use the CODE safely, just disable the cab section and enjoy. The thing is su...

Re: Latest JVM Journey...The Important Mods

I did Plexi cap and Choke and Im super happy with the tone and feel, also retubed the preamp section and my noise floor is incredibly low for such a gain moster, also seem to like more K77 power tubes more, specially mid range, but that is personal taste I guess. Also did at some point the C83 mod b...

Re: JVM410H ....need affordable reliable backup amp

I got a CODE, just because it is a Marshall, and it is not bad at all ... not boutique tones but cheap and somehow light.

Re: No gain on JCM800

Yeah, I repeated to myself many times how stupid I am, hahaha .... probably Im biased by the fact that the amp is 37 years old, and hence should be kind of worn but nothing further from reality, the thing is super sturdy and solid rock! an authentic British bull :)

No gain on JCM800

Any clue about what could be the cause? The amp sounds crystal clean, no apparent volume drop. Preamp tubes may be faulty?
