OVERVIEW

A 2-channel addition to Marshall's flagship series.

In a nutshell, the Marshall all-valve, 2-channel JVM210H 100-Watt tube head is a 2-channel version of the most versatile Marshall amplifier ever made. It also boasts more gain than any other Marshall to date-and that's really saying something.

Each of its 2 channels are completely independent of each other, and they boast 3 Modes, all 6 of which are footswitchable and feature their own unique gain structure. It makes the JVM 2-channel effectively 6 Marshalls in one.

The JVM210H has studio-quality digital reverb with a level control for each channel. This is also footswitchable, as are the amp's 2 Master Volume controls and the Series/Parallel effects loop. Resonance and Presence are equipped with master controls.

An ingenious footswitch (UK patent pending) and the fact all the amp's switching (channel/modes, Reverb, Master Volume selection, FX loop) can be done via MIDI and you're looking at an incredibly flexible amp. The 4-way footswitch boasts LEDs and memory, plus it connects to the amp via a regular guitar cable.

From the cleanest clean to the filthiest distortion ever found in a Marshall and all points in-between, the JVM210H all-valve amp head will give you whatever tone you need right when you need it.

FEATURES
  • 100W power
  • All-valve, with 5 x
  • 12AX7s and 4 x EL34s
  • 2 totally independent, footswitchable channels
  • Each channel has 3 footswitchable modes
  • Footswitchable, studio-quality digital reverb
  • Independent reverb controls for each channel
  • 2 footswitchable master volumes
  • 2 FX loops, one series, and one parallel
  • Parallel FX loop is footswitchable on/off
  • Speaker emulated XLR output
  • 4-way footswitch (with memory) supplied
  • All switching can be done via MIDI

This is a follow up to my October 2014 review.

I was able to get an all original and unmodded model year 1977 Marshall SLP 1959 NMV head. Mechanically it is flawless. I have it matched with a 4x12 with 20 year old UK made greenbacks. It's a nice rig. I decided to compare it to my JVM 210 head matched with a 4x12 with new but broken in greenbacks. I did switch cabs in this analysis.

I set the JVM to channel 1 orange mode with gain at 2 o'clock. I jumped the SLP WITH VOLUME 1 maxed and volume 2 at noon. Amp is hooked to a Marshall Power Brake. Without pedals both amps produce a crunch tone. On the pedal board I use a Modtone hi gainer set with little tone and a lot of low end. Gain is low at about 9/10 o'clock. I also use a tube screamer for boost.

Both amps deliver classic marshall tones. I can dial them in to be very similiar in tone but not exact..

The Results: Although the tones are similiar, when I compared real time via an A/B switch the SLP is a bit sweeter all around. The SLP sings a bit more, is "woodier" , has better harmonics. The JVM has more low end sounds more compressed. If I were to gig live I would use the SLP as my main rig and the JVM as a backup. In fairness, the JVM did successfully deliver an excellent vintage tone but the SLP was magnificent. Think Page, Blackmore, Hendrix, and you know what tones I was going for.

The thing that Is great about the JVM is it does a lot....a lot more than the SLP. Using the same cabs, I then compared the JVM in channel 2 red mode to a Mesa Dual Rectifier Rectoverb in hi gain modern mode. I was looking for a brutal hi gain modern tone. Still using greenbacks, both amps roared and no pedals were used. The Mesa had more low end growl but the Marshall's tone was just as good. It really comes down do you prefer Mesa sounds or Marshall sounds because both amps delivered.

I still maintain the JVM is a great amp that does alo of thing very well. It can go from a 70s Plexi hard rock crunch to modern hi gain brutality at the press of a button. If all you want is a PLEXI or JCM 800 tones, get either of those amps vintage or reissues because although the JVM gets you in that neighborhood, very well obviously a real SLP or JCM800 will nail it better. If you play more than blues and classic rock, the JVM in channel 2 gets you from super hot rodded marshall tones to very hi gain modern and metal.

Inadequate Substitute for 1959SLP

I bought a JVM210H head as an alternative to my 1959SLP reissue from about 2003. I thought it would be nice to have a master volume control (it is) and six different gain channels. The 1959SLP has neither. So to run the 1959SLP in my home I generally use a collection of pedals, especially overdrive pedals. And this sounds great. But I thought the new JVM might get me some new tones unavailable to my old amp and sound nice at lower volumes, particularly the classic Marshall gain without requiring high volume. The gain channels, however, are not very listenable at lower volumes. In fact, even at higher volumes, they pale in comparison to the SLP with a pedal. Now, the JVM starts to sound better at higher volumes, but it never matches the SLP; even the JVM's clean channel sounds lackluster by comparison. The JVM sounds very artificial, almost solid-state-like at all volume levels. I can't explain this since they both use EL34s; I guess the preamp circuits are different.

I don't see that this amp would be a good purchase for anyone. A beginner could get a Fender Mustang or some other modeling amp to learn what he or she likes best. A pro would surely demand better tone, perhaps from a Plexi or any of the myriad other high-end amps. The Super Lead has such rich content in its presentation, I'd recommend saving up for it instead.

I should mention I'm using a sealed-back Orange PPC410 cab and host of single-coil and humbucker guitars, including a Les Paul Pro and G&L ST500.

Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM210H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I have a few Marshall amps In my collection, Valvestate 40w , MG100DFX, 9000 rack system. This Head ROCKS, 2 channels, 3 cool mode's each channel, killer master volumes , nice programmable foot switch,
sound's great at lower volumes, it's nice to have a tube amp I don't have to run full blast and I don't have to run a super overdrive pedal for my leads. Great all around head for all types of music

Most Versatile Amp of All Time

Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM210H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

Wow. For the last couple of years, I've tried a number of amps (many of the usual suspects), looking for the perfect tone. Well, six months ago, when I first played the JVM 210H, that all changed. This amp is incredible. With six gain stages across two channels, I can dial in any sound I like. The clean channel has got a nice sparkly tone with a very very subtle amount of grit, which I love. Then I can kick it up to the next gain stage and get the perfect lite crunchy tone. It also accepts Overdrive pedals very well if I want to dial it up another notch w/o changing the voicing on the amp. And the distortion channel - oh man. Absolutely incredible. Talk about punchy, in your face, hard rock tones. Everything from 80s rock all the way up to the heaviest metal you could ever want. I've gotten so many compliments on my tone since making this switch, I can't even begin to tell you. I don't ever want to play another amp. This one has it all. It's like using an all-tube, genuine Marshall, modeler (since you can dial in so many sounds), only this is the real deal - nothing fake about this. And I did use this along side another guitarist that uses a popular amp modeling device... it was like night and day; the difference between a real amp and a toy. And, best of all, the two master volumes makes lead boosting easy as can be. Get one now. You won't be sorry!

Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM210H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

I bought a restock at a huge discount, It has a small dent in the front lower corner, I dont care, The amp sounds fanfriggintastick. Definately the best tone I have yet to experience. Very versitile, the cleans are clear and sparkly even with emgs, the gains are ridiculious, (im a pantera freak) and this thing will do that and waay more deathy tones. played it through my peavey valveking cab for awhile and it was awesome, I now own a 1960b cab and I honostly believe I am done shopping!

    Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM210H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    This is a follow up to my October 2014 review.

    I was able to get an all original and unmodded model year 1977 Marshall SLP 1959 NMV head. Mechanically it is flawless. I have it matched with a 4x12 with 20 year old UK made greenbacks. It's a nice rig. I decided to compare it to my JVM 210 head matched with a 4x12 with new but broken in greenbacks. I did switch cabs in this analysis.

    Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM210H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

    It's a Marshall...Sounds awesome, lots and lots of gain. Just like any other Marshall, plug your guitar in and turn it up. The effects loop does take a little tinkering with to get it just right. I like the fact that you have two loops to choose from and the midi function is very easy to use. I changed preamp tubes to JJ ecc81's to calm the amp down and replaced the el34's with JJ E34L's. Gave it a little more punch when you turn up the master volume. I spent over 2 hours in a local music store messing around with a Mesa Boogie Triple Rectum Fryer and never could find the tone i was looking for. I plugged into the JVM, didnt turn a single knob, and loved it.....

        Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM210H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

        Awesome head. I've had it two months and I love it. It really can do it all. Great cleans with lots of head room. It has so many sounds you can preset that this amp is really all you need. It can certainly dish vintage and hot rodded vintage JCM 800 and 1959 tones. Don't let anyone fool you on that. This head delivers.

        I bought this because of the price I got. It was one of those situations you just can't pass. I'm glad it did. I have this matched to a 1996 Marshall 1960 cab with Made in Uk Celestion G12T-75s. I occasionally play this at lower volumes through my 2x12 with Greenbacks and it all sounds great.

        I play classic rock mostly and my idols are Deep Purple first but I play a lot from Sabbath, AC/DC, Zep, Clapton, free, etc. Obviously Blackmore is a major influence and I use an Engl Blackmore head matched with A 4x12 loaded with Vintage 30s and G12-65s in an x pattern. I can assure you that rig rocks. As much bias I have for Blackmore, I have to say the JVM can match the Engl and in fact is better in some areas.

        The Engl can dish pure classic vintage British tones. The Engl is so good I didn't think the Marshall could match it. I was wrong and what was I thinking? It's all taste but the JVM is very good.

        The JVM is a pricey bit of kit. But let's face it, most pro grade gear is. In comparison to the Blackmore, The JVM 210 is the same price point but is midi capable and comes with the foot switch ( the engl is neither). It can do everything the Engl can do and more. Full disclosure the Engl clean is amazing.

        I also have an old 50W 1980s JCM800. The amp is well used but still sounds great. The JVM can do hot roofed JCM 800 tones on steroids.

        When I got this a guy offered to trade his mint condition vintage (not reissue) 1959 all original straight up for my Blackmore Engl. Who could pass on that. I was all set to do the deal until the demo. He immediately loved the Blackmore but when I tried his 1959 both the Blackmore and this JVM destroyed it. It was not even close and the guy wanting to make the trade was shocked at the thumping his head took. He just had it tubed and wAs getting rave reviews at his gigs about the tone of his amp.

        In short, the JVM is a great offering from Marshall and is a great value. It more than nails any sought after Marshal tone.
