Re: What speakers for JVM410H in 4x12" cab with 2 x G12H's?

I did push them and to be fair they sounded a lot better with the Marshall than my Road King. However the 4x12 is a 2006 and the other cab is 2016 I think. The 4x12 has settled to what its going to be and I still didnt love them. The CB75d on the other hand sounded amazing out of box. That is comple...

Re: What speakers for JVM410H in 4x12" cab with 2 x G12H's?

A lot of people love V30s. I hate em. Just sound brittle to my ears. But that is subjective. I replaced all my V30s in a 2x2 and 4x12 mesa cab with the CB75s for higher power handling and less breakup. A lot of people love the lower wattage CB which I think would pair nice with yours. Did you consid...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

There are so many opinions options and choices that it kind of can suck the joy out of life if you hate that or get you a hard on for weeks if you are techie which I am. I have the best of all worlds for my studio setup. Before I go into my thoughts here is a list of my gear and then my 2c on the am...

Re: Boss ES-8 or Gigrig G2?

The midi for me works flawlessly. The issue that I had is you cannot change the midi channel on the jvm. I think its not a BOSS issue.

Re: Boss ES-8 or Gigrig G2?

I can only speak for the ES-8 but there is some good videos on it and now that they added the midi editor so you can do it via app on computer its much simpler. That weird german guy has a series of videos on the ES-8 that were very in depth. I would say save the money. I will say I couldnt get my j...

Re: Trouble changing JVM Default Midi Channel to 6 (or other)

Yeah i hear ya. Problem was the JVM was the last thing I went to configure and I already had a bunch of stuff assigned to midi 1. I just finally sucked it up and went through all my presets. BTW how are you running the fx loop with that? I have two amps I switch between so I think I may use the send...

Re: Trouble changing JVM Default Midi Channel to 6 (or other)

I never did get the amp to change the midi channel so i just finally used channel 1 the default. Im disappointed that it was impossible to reset this but it works fine with my es-8 if I stick to the default. Probably should have just done that to start but hey I had big dreams of changing the defaul...

Re: Trouble changing JVM Default Midi Channel to 6 (or other)

Thanks guys. I have tried the steps listed and that is where i hit the wall. When I do step 5 and hold the midi change button and power on the server it never flashes. I did a reset previously and I know that I configured a marshall footswitch in the past but I can never get it to go to the midi lea...

Trouble changing JVM Default Midi Channel to 6 (or other)

Hi all, I have a JVM410H head that I previously was using with the footswitch. I got an ES-8 and already have my Mesa working with an external Midi unit but I cannot for the life of me get the damn jvm midi channel changed. I follow the instructions to hold the midi button while I turn on the amp bu...

Re: Latest JVM Journey...The Important Mods

I reduced the gain for OD 1 and 2 which also reduced the noise. Plexi mod is worth it. I also did c83 mod which reduced brittleness I hate the gt12-75s. Especially newer ones The creamback H is my second favorite speaker after the celestion golds I recently did the same, sold off all my amps and ke...

Re: JVM 410H with TC Electronic G-System

I have one and I get some good sounds out of it but I miss the simplicity of pedals. That said I do not use the 4 cable system. I did set it up and had it working and the stuff you are describing sounds like a global settings issue. I would recommend hitting the TC forum. Laird himself along with El...

Re: Mod thinking. Fender blackface and Plexi mod pairing.

I think I am just going to go for it. I figure I can always reverse it. The Blackface mod for some reason sounds right, 59 crunch as well as the plexi. Thinking about the gain reduction one as well while I have it apart as the levels on OD2 are kinda stupid IMO. Thanks for the insight folks. My new ...

Re: New JVM410c+TSLC212 cab OR Used JVM410h+1960AV

I just checked with my guy at Sweetwater and he confirmed unless special order, the 1960A is def chinese speakers. not sure about the AV but I suspect the same. I would get a Mesa cabinet instead. Those come with UK V30s and personally I think they look better. Im running my JVM through a 2x12 recto...

Re: Mod thinking. Fender blackface and Plexi mod pairing.

Thanks GM. Can I ask what you noticed most about the gain reduction and did it affect all channels or just specific ones? Also did it cut down on the hiss and noise?

Re: Good time to buy?

I bought a mint jvm410h head (2011) for 1000US on craigslist. The deals are there. I often see some discounted on the outlet zones quite a bit too if you want new. Great time to buy. Also I use a THD Hotplate and yes they are way loud but there are ways to deal with it and I dont think its too loud....
