Re: OK to leave the amp on STAND-BY for long hours?

It's good practice to use the standby when first powering up the amp,[says so in the manual] let the power tubes warm up then rock out. Leaving it on for hours when not using it is nuts. It's not like a modern standby mode in your TV or Home Theater gear. Where all that is powered is a LED lamp. Yo...

Re: OD1 Green rules

A 50W JCM800 isn't what I would call scaling down... 50W is alomst as loud as 100W, but with less headroom. I agree with Sirion it needs to be pushed to sound good, unlike the JVM series. Did you consider the Marshall SC20H with a 1x12 or 2x12 cab? It's basically a JCM800 2203, but with switchable o...

Re: Ditching the JVM

Honestly, I never use my HJS at home - just for gigging. I don't see myself holding on to it if I would never perform on stage anymore. I use Guitar Rig and AmpliTube at home... Much easier and better sounding (headphones) than any real amp in that situation. Maybe it would be different if I lived f...

Sorry, I meant Boss Delay Pedals...
Did you try switching to instrument loop levels (-10dBV) on the back of the amp?

My bad, I didn't realize DD stands for Digital Delay... duh... These should work fine in the loop.

Re: Any Boss Pedals work in the JVM Loop?

Any Boss Pedals work in the JVM Loop? I play high gain on OD1 and OD@. The DD3 is distorting. Any luck witrh DD6, DD7, or DD20 for High gain? Personally, I would never place drive pedals in the loop. IMO, they sound much better in front of the amp and that is also what they were designed for. Most ...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

thank you captain obvious, that's what I was using, the JSJVM Orange mode, [smilie-eyeroll] but I've gone back to just using my JVM without the Axe at all anyway. With an MXR 10 band in the loop I'm getting the best sounds I've ever gotten out of this thing. I'm probably switching over to a FriedMa...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

But why on earth would you run an AxeFx JVM model through an actual JVM? You already have a real JVM! WTF! smilie=icon_lol.gif Yeah, that seems silly - but the point he is trying to make is that amp modelling works great in a certain setup and depends on how we perceive tone. I use a Helix with my ...

Interesting the way he states that the amp was designed to sound good with all knobs set on 12 o'clock.
Plus he used a standard 1960A cab with G12T75's when testing the amp during the design.

Re: Differences in Tone when using FX loop

You can test the JVM fx loop by connecting a patch cable from the send into the return. You may experience a slight drop in volume which can be dealt with by adjusting the fx level knob, but there should be no change in tone. Even if an fx pedal has an input buffer, that won't be a guarantee that no...

Re: Is my 410H kaputt ?

... I think ill do it best by myself, change the tubes and set the bias, just learning it. This forums is full of that stuff and what i read for now shows my amp is not broke but the tubes may be aged and the bias set too cold. Ive bought that amp used already, dont even care for its age ^^ Im gonn...

Re: Is my 410H kaputt ?

I dont know nothing about the inside of my Amp, i should start learning it, but for now ill bring it to service. Learning this Amp is a long road to me, because all the knobs are VERY sensitive, changing the tone A LOT even on minimal adjustments. That made it so complicated for me, to find "my" to...

Re: Is my 410H kaputt ?

Hi Mick, Not sure your JVM is kaputt... Based on your evaluation, I am surprised you have kept that amp for 5 years and not sold it or taken it to a tech yet... The weird sound you describe could be tube related. The cold or stiff feel could be a low bias setting. Taking it to a tech to make sure so...

Re: Sold my JVM & got an Axe-Fx

I have and it sounds great , but I hate the thought of lugging everything around, one positive would be I get to use both cabs. I may try that tomorrow at rehearsal. Do you have the chance to try and run the Axe FX through the poweramp in of a guitar combo instead of a FRFR? The coloration of the g...
