Re: Howling LP Deluxe

I, too, have some cheap pickups that make some crazy noise when in high gain channels/modes like OD1 orange, OD2 orange, OD1 red, OD2 red, but pickups are find in low gain channels/modes. Gonna drop some of my old SD pups that worked great in other guitars.

Re: Are you chicken to do this to your JVM?

@OP: you gotta do what you gotta, especially when it comes to your health and comfort. I wouldn't change the knobs for the same reasons. Instead, I'd probably just pull a pen flashlight out of my back pocket with that (I also have lights in my rack space). But right now, once I arrange the knobs on ...

Re: My JVM growls at me

That's the "big dawg" for ya'. I've yet to play the Code 50 (I hear it's a very cool amp), but I've owned my standard 410H since 2008. First time I played it I instantly compared it to past Marshall amps and said to myself, "That's a Marshall?!" I couldn't believe how aggressive and vicious the tone...

Re: Where to get tubes and frequency if change!!!

Hate to kill a topic, Where can I get tubes for my JVM410. I changes the power tubes once fromCwinged to EHs The EHs were good but I could tell a difference. Its now time to change power tubes again.

Re: JVM Sound/Valves

@OP: Lots of things could be at play regarding your situation. If your "gain"/distortion/overdrive/dirt is starting to lessen, you could look at the preamp tubes, bad cable, power tubes, etc. Easiest and cheapest is to check cables and speaker connection to make sure everything is in good condition....

Re: My findings: JJE34L, JJ6CA7, EH6CA7, JJKT77, Mullard EL34's

My 2008 410H came with relabeled SED Winged =C= EL34 power tubes, which served me very well. The only thing I don't like about the SED Winged =C= EL34 power tube is the price (yes, I know what's become of the company, etc., etc., etc.) For me, the SED Winged =C= EL34 power tube is the tube I use to ...

Re: Video of Santiago explaining the JVM in 2014

Interesting video. I like hearing Santiago's entire approach to a modern design amp like the JVM: his pick up selection, the speaker choice, eq settings, etc. Similarly, every time I turn on my standard 410H, I, too, set all tone knobs at "12 o'clock" position (gain, channel volume, master volume, a...

Re: Differences in Tone when using FX loop

Hello. I, too, tried four cable method, but in the end I didn't like the results. I used different devices in the four cable method, but I just didn't like the results; in some cases, the tone changed too much, and in other cases the devices seemed to have less of an impact than when routed in anoth...

Re: Is my 410H kaputt ?

Hi there, ive bought my 410H used about 5 years ago. From the very beginning, the amp sounded rather cold then warm. I noticed the Volume in clean channel, upper right, had no effect on green, just bound to master with that. Is that normal ? When playing clean, the tone is not properly coming, soun...

Re: EL-34 Tube Selection

Prior to posting my reply I did take notice that this is an old thread, but seeing the it's a topic that is still relevant I decided to add to it rather than start something new. I just installed a matched quad of JJ E34L power tubes today in my stock 2007 JVM410H...so far so good. Bias went like a ...

Re: Got my first JVM410 and I'm just WAW!

Congratulation on acquiring the 410H. I, too, tried the 410HJS many times with different cabs, tubes, guitars, etc., and I came to conclusion that it just wasn't the amp for me. I was immediately blown away first time I played a stock 410H at a music store back in late 2017; I could not believe tha...
