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...

Re: JVM #1

as far as I remember the main reason was that neither the DSL nor the TSL had choke, the JVM was initially the successor of the TSL. Some other amps like the JCM900s and the 6100 didn't have choke nor some competitors like the 5150. Technically it wasn't justified either because the JVM has a rathe...

Re: JVM 205C vs JVM 410C

Can anyone give their thoughts on the 205 over the 410. I currently have the 410H that I use with a Mesa and Marshall cab. I'm now trying to decide between the 2 to use at church and smaller places. I do use MIDI switching and pedals with my 410 now. Another thing the 205 is a used demo model from ...

Re: JVM #1

Hi, I've found some pictures of the very first JVM. The mechanics are slightly different to the production one although very close. This is the one that appeared in the first promotional video and also it was also used to develop full midi implementation with support for CC messages and later I use...

Re: Dbx 31 channel vs MXR 10 band

Get whichever best fulfills your need(s). If that seems too general, then a question: have you even tried either device at a store or borrowed either device from a friend/band mate/etc.? That kind of experience will be a great help in picking one over the other or at least ruling one out. Good luck ...

Re: Satriani Signature JVM discontinued

It's about time [smiley-surprised] . Though I had high hopes for it in the beginning, it kinda let me down after playing through a few them. I agree with the redundancy aspect some are saying in this thread, particularly in regards to OD2. I also didn't like the gate (they seemed to close down on th...

Re: JVM JVM205H VS. JVM205C

@OP: We all got our own unique situations to deal with, so I empathize. I suggest going with the JVM head versus the cab. Here are a couple reasons: 1) you can select any cab and speaker(s). 2) you can ditch the cab and plug the JVM head straight into house PA system 3) you can split the load with a...

Re: JVM410 and MIDI CC commands

I always thought that the Joe Satriani JVM410HJS does communicate via MIDI CC commands (someone please correct me if I'm wrong). If so, then you should be able to map out most switches on the 410HJS to your G-System via your MIDI foot-controller.

Re: Boss ES-8 or Gigrig G2?

Anyone have experience with both of these and JVM(410h)? Have the chance to buy both second hand at the moment, even though the G2 is much more expensive, I am wondering if the price warrants the difference in features/usability? The Boss unit obviously has a few more options/menu's, G2 seems simpl...
