What does JVM stand for?

Postby bauhausbullet » Thu Jun 24, 2010 11:31 am

Hello again, I just got wondering. What does JVM stand for?

At first I thought it might be something to do with 'vintage / modern' but then, what about the 'J'

Then I thought, it must be something to do with Jim Marshall, OK, that's the J and the M sorted, what about the V?

I've also read my manual (a few times now) and on the front page it's got Jim Marshall's daughter, Victoria, is this what it means then? Jim / Vctoria / Marshall?

Could someone please enlighten me? I bet it's dead obvious really.

While we're at it, where does 'JCM' come from?

Thank's for any answers or ideas. Cheers, Rich.

JCM means nothing I think... I read somewhere that Jim had a car that had JCM on the licence plate and he used it because he thought it sounded cool. Could be wrong, of course :D

I think that the "Jim" and "Victoria" in JVM is used because this amp is appealing both in an old-school and modern way.

the "C" in JCM stands for the second name jim has, but i forgot what it was... the 800 designation came indeed from his car

edit:
got it... it was "charles" so then it's:
JCM -> Jim Charles Marshall

93 gibson les paul, seymour duncun triple shots, P-rails pickups, (rail coil, P90, series humbucker or parallel humbucker)
elixer baritone strings: .012 .016 .022 .038 .052 .068 in standard tune
