Joe walks through his current JVM rig. Interesting settings...

It's pretty in-depth. Also shows closeups of the knobs.

And he mentions our very own Santiago of course. [smilie=gt-happyup.gif]

That's what I was thinking. But I also thought the Tone Knob settings were pretty different. I wonder if they have been tweaked a little or if he just rolls off that much. I guess if he is only playing leads like he says, that might work out for him. But all the channels had almost no treble (or presence).

I wish I could turn mine up as loud as his. The most I can do is CH Vol 4 and Master about 4 without blowing up any place we play out.

I'm sure many of the guys on this board have no problems killing people with their volume though. Hehe.

I want 4 noise gates in my jvm [smilie=icon_cry.gif] Thats such a good idea, I mean I don't use the reverbs anyway I always use a pedal for those.
I could really do with getting rid of all my tone sucking noise gates. I wonder if they work like the kerry king one.

Did I understand that right...that there will be a Signature version hitting the streets in about a year? Not that I'll buy one...I don't know that I'd be interested in all of those mods, but some I would be...reducing compression in favor of increased articulation and punch.

It would be nice to know how they decreased the compression, and would be even better if there was a variable compression setting, on at least one of the OD channels. Great interview. Thanks for the posting.

Some sort of gain reduction. I thought this was covered here. Cant remember where or what exactly was said.

I like Satch... but not his biggest fan. all good
I mainly use LP custom's w 10-52 strings, emg 81/85 pick up's & electroinics,
Wylde Wah, MXR ZW44 overdrive, TC nova delay, (in that order in front of the amp)
jvm410h stock, korg dtr1 (hz mode) in the loop (no return for silent tuning), with 1960v30's 4x12 cabs,
and eta power distrobution. no gates...Kick it out!~~~~~~~~S.D.M.F.

Someone on the Marshall forum posted pics. It seems that there is a choke in the Satriani amps - I wonder whether this is relavent to the compression statement?

Good interview. Satch is a talented musician, but not gaga crazy over his stuff. Very interesting to hear how he applies the JVM to his rig though. So, I guess our wait for a JVM version 2 will have to take a back seat to a Satch Signature JVM . . .

Thanks for the find.

Not to stoke the fires (sorry Santiago [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif] [smilie=icon_razz.gif] ) but over at Rig-talk we've been talking about the fact that the "newer" JVM's have bolt-on pots with metal shafts (since mid 2010).

I am wondering if the Satriani JVM will have this "improvement" as well? Nice Gear Dude!
thanks!

that mod was done long ago, just now reaches the market/rig-talk notices [smilie=icon_mrgreen.gif]

I'd say that newer amps will have bolted pots regardless the model name.

why was the modification made? at first i was being told, that the unbolted pots would provide less tension to the PCB and therefore making that section sturdier (which i can fully understand... if it bends, it doesn't break)...
now all a sudden the pots are bolted onto the chassis... so far i've never read reports about broken pots or anything, so i don't think that that could be the reason... maybe a sales decision, as the "wobbly pots" were getting a bad rap?

also, i can understand, that the owners of the "unbolted" JVM's, are now feeling cheated, as they were told, that the unbolted pots, were done to make that section of the amp stronger

don't want to heat up your heels, but i'm just curious [smilie=icon_wink.gif]
