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

  • Independent reverb controls for each channel

  • 2 FX loops, one series, and one parallel

  • 4-way footswitch (with memory) supplied

    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

    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 forgot how heavy these rigs are, but you just can't beat a cranked Marshall for tone and definition. This unit combined with my 4-12 angled cabinet can cover any venue I could think of. It's loud and ballsy, but easy to finesse.

      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.

          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!

          The most versatile head ive owned.
          Great amp. Very versatile. However, it had a tube failure after about 3 mos time. I sent it down to Houston, TX to a guy`called the tone doctor for re-tube and a few mods..Its now the best all around head I have owned so far. Def check out his work. His website is www.thetonedoctor.com
