Hello from Circleville, Ohio

Post by Jshannon3 » Sat Nov 03, 2018 9:56 am

Wassup dudes and dudettes. Its jshannon3 from Circleville , Ohio. I'm a 45 yr old shredder that loves the JVM410H. It was my dream amp when i first purchased it. I had a Marshall DSL100H at first but i couldnt get the tone i was looking for with that amp, so i went to the music store(much love Guitar Center and Sam Ash) and started playing amps until i got to the JVM, and that was all it took, love at first lick. So i had the cash and bought it(from Zzounds), the rest is ancient history, i gig with it, use it in the recording studio, use it at home to practice, and everywhere in between. The high gain JVM matches up good with my ESP guitars giving me that raw punchy distortion. I use MX412A/B Cabs and they seem to work well with the JVM especially at higher volumes. I use Boss effects for my effects loop: chorus, flanger, digital delay, eq, noisegate, compressor sustainer, harmonist, and a wah. Pretty simple for a guitar player, but simplicity is good. Well thats what im all about, i'll drop another line once we complete our first cd, offer some free copies!!!

Update: I recently obtained another addition to the family, another ESP E2 M2 Urban Camo Guitar. Man it looks and sounds as awesome as the first one, the paint job is a tad darker(black and greys)than the first one, and the camo pattern is a bit different in some areas, but man it’s a shred machine just like it’s brother. I’m gonna leave the new one tuned in standard tuning and tune the other in Eb(for Slayer tunes). Man so psyched I have 2 ESPs!!

Love the forum, get hot tips and tricks about playing and the JVM on here. I’ve been reading a lot about mods, why would anyone want to make a mod to a perfect amplifier, I mean the JVM is a beast, damn near perfect amp, why mod it? I would understand changing from reverb to noisegate or getting that plexi sound, but some of these other mods....huh....ruining a near perfect amp. That’s what I see.

Re: A Happy Story from Circleville, Ohio

Post by Jshannon3 » Wed Sep 04, 2019 5:33 am

A Happy little story:
So my friend from Michigan gets outta prison, all he's got is a few clothes, a gang box, with personal items, a Behringer electric guitar, a tape player, and a few wires to hookup the guitar to the tape player for a clean channel. Hey, the dude's been in for 10 years. I finally receive an email from him and learn his new cellphone number and call him, we talk for hours about old times(I was in another prison with him back in 2005) The topic came up about music and I asked him if he still played and he said, "Jim Shannon(that's me, he's always called me by my first and last name) I got a guitar, but no amp, my tape player has been modified for a clean channel, but that's all I got." I said, "Oh, man." And left it at that. We talked for another half hour and said our good nights and ended the conversation. That night, it bothered me that he had no amplifier so much that I couldn't sleep. He's a decent guitar player! I know he had no money. And him, being a fellow metal head, he had no distortion channel!!! He was put up in a hotel by Catholic Social services. Right then and there I got my laptop out and got on guitar center.com to find him a practice amp, I have credit through Guitar Center and I wanted to help my friend! I found some used Line 6 Spider IV 20 amps for 48 dollars and bought him one, I also got him a new cable and a new set of strings. With shipping everything came to 82 dollars, not bad, I can afford that for a friend. I finalized the transaction and had it dropped shipped to the motel he is in and he will be receiving it on Thursday. It will be good for him, he has nothing to do while he is on parole, and music will keep him occupied. Anytime I can give the gift of music I feel blessed. Man he was excited when I told him about it the next day once we got all the tracking numbers and info. Insta, I love ya man, brothers forever! Its good karma doing what I did. It makes the world a better place. I just wish I could get him a better guitar, but he told me he wants my green LTD, he's seen pics of my guitars and loves that guitar. I just tell him, "If you lived a little closer, I would let you borrow it." I never play the LTD, you never know, I might box it up and ship it to him some day and tell him to send me 300 dollars when he can, to cover the cost of what I paid for the guitar, I'm nice like that. smilie=icon_lol.gif

More to the nice little story: I did it, I boxed up that LTD guitar that my buddy in Michigan liked and dropped shipped it to him in Ypsilanti, MI. I never play it, I'm to hung up on my ESP's and play them constantly. The LTD just collects dust and string changes. I told my buddy that I was sending it to him, and he was elated! It cost me 20 bucks for a shipping box on amazon and 31.25 to send it 2-day UPS, so 51.25 to ship it. a small price to pay to make a friend happy. Now, I told him, once you get on your feet, you can pay me back for the guitar at the tune of 360 dollars, cause that's how much I have in it, and if you wanted to pay for some of the shipping too, that would be cool, only when you get back on your feet, brother. So now he's got a decent amp and a decent guitar(better than the guitar he had, Behringer) and accessories(picks, strings, tools, strap. I hooked him up)The only thing I didn't send him was 9V batteries, but I'm gonna box him up 2 ProCells with insulators and mail them to him, those will last him 2 years or more. It's his first guitar with active pickups so sometimes he forgets to unplug it when he's done(that wears the battery down) All in all I feel good about what I've done, putting a good guitar in the hands of someone in need makes me feel good inside, I just wish I had more guitars to do for others, but that could prove to be expensive.
