OVERVIEW

More channels, more gain, more versatility.

In a nutshell, the Marshall all-valve, 4-channel JVM410H 100-watt tube head is 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 4 channels—Clean, Crunch, OD1 and OD2—are not only completely independent of each other, they all boast three Modes, all 12 of which are footswitchable and feature their own unique gain structure. It makes the JVM 4-channel effectively 12 Marshalls in one.

The JVM410H has studio-quality digital reverb with a level control for each channel. This is also footswitchable, as are the amp's two Master Volume controls and the Series/Parallel effects loop. Resonance and Presence are equipped with master controls.

Even though the head and combo both house 28 controls and eight LED switches on their front panels, they're incredibly simple to understand because of the extremely logical layout. Each of the four channels has the usual suspects when it comes to controls — Volume, Bass, Middle, Treble and Gain--accounting for 20 of the 28 controls right away. Take away the four reverb controls and you're only left with 4 Master controls--2 Master Volumes plus Resonance and Presence.

Add to this 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 6-way footswitch boasts seven 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 JVM410H all-valve amp head will give you whatever tone you need right when you need it.

FEATURES
  • Power: 100W (tube)
  • Tubes: four 12AX7 (ECC83) preamp, one 12AX7 and four EL34 power amp
  • 4 independent, footswitchable channels--Clean, Crunch, OD1 & OD2
  • Each channel boasts 3 footswitchable modes — Green, Orange & Red
  • Studio quality, footswitchable digital reverb with level controls for all 4 channels
  • 2 footswitchable master volumes
  • Two FX loops — Series/Parallel & Parallel
  • Series/Parallel FX loop is footswitchable
  • Emulated line out
  • 6-way, 7-LED footswitch with memory capabilities (UK patent pending)
  • All switching can be done via MIDI
  • Made in England

    Try it out over and over before making the purchase.
    I have had the JVM410H for over 3 years, and know it's strengths and weaknesses. Without a doubt, it has more to offer than any amp that is on the market. For example; You have 4 channels, and with each channel you have 3 settings, green, yellow, and red. Green being the lowest setting, and red being the highest. This is one of 7 amps that I have, all being tube, and each with their own sound. The Fender Twin Reverb is at the top of the chain for clean sounds, but the Marshall JVM410H is not far behind. The pedal board is a must have, and can be set up to change the amp to any channel or color. Without going into what has already been written, you can rest assure that this amps has many features. However, there is also a huge problem when it comes to amps with huge gain. As one person has already mentioned, there is a great amount of hiss with this amp set on high gain, or crunch settings, with the color on red. It doesn't matter which noise gate you use, it will not clean the hiss. I also have had it looked at, and was told that the reason for the hiss, is due to the Marshall tubes being rated really high in gain. If you were using a scale of 1 to 10 on gain in tubes, and the number 10 being the highest. The tubes that come with the JVM410H would all be 10's. This is fine if you are playing live gigs and you don't mind the hiss, but if you have a recording studion such as I have. There is no way to record with this amp, other than on the clean channel. To address this situation, I had the tubes changed from the really high gain 10's, to a tube that would be rated a 3 on the 1 to 10 high gain tube scale. This doesn take anything away except the hiss, and you can use a pedal if you want to increase the gain. My speaker cab is a JCM900 1960 Lead, and I'm happy with the combination.
    In the three years I have had it I have had no problems, other than the hiss I've already described. The head seems to be made really well, and it would appear that Marshall spared no cost in making a good amp head.
    When I purchased this head it was priced lower than it is now. While I feel that all music gear is over priced, I really think that Marshall is asking to much for this amp. Nevertheless, it does have a true Marshall sound, and does more than any amp they have made to date. If you are a metal player, then this amp would be perfect for you. For those of us that are classic rock or light metal, we could probably get by with the 50 watt head instead of this one. The clean is the best sounding that you will ever hear out of a Marshall amp, and the volume will break you windows on high gain. Just keep in mind that there is a hiss that you have to deal with.

    Wanted to love this amp, however out of the 4 channels I liked the clean and crunch after that it was too much noise on any of the gain channels. As soon as I put the gain past 9 o clock on the yellow or red channel it was instant noise, feedback, hum and beeping. I even asked my wife to listen to the gain channels to see if I was going crazy, she goes "is that an alarm going off in the amp" it was a low beeping. I tried 5 guitars a noise gate it was just not happening. I tried different monster cables etc. If it was a bad tube I wasn't going to waste any more time on this amp to find out. Besides the noise the tone of the gain was too thin and too modern for my taste. I had to literally turn the amp on almost full blast to get a decent tone out of this amp. All in all I hated this amp. Thanks god for returns it is going back, fast!!!

          I've had this rigged up for several years now, and use it everywhere. It works great, and I love it. But I have definitely had to control the hiss/buzz/noise when the gain goes up. I had to put a decimator and turn on an additional noise gate in my effects processor. The clean channels are great, and when you keep the gain down on the OD1 and OD2, fantastic sounds and tone ... just watch out when you want to get all 80's or 90's crunchy metal, be prepared for the noise.

          For the money you can't do better- I know, been there, done that- had all the boutique mega amps out there- don't waste your time. Fantastic cleans in this amp too. If you're gigging or playing at home this amp can do it- pop, blues, classic rock metal too- silent recording function- great foot-switch midi reverb on and on fantastic value IMHO.

              I wont go on and on. I have a TON of amps from the 800 to the JVM. This is a great amp for the working musician like myself. It can do it all. Joe Satriani plays one, and his model has built in noise gates. The clean and crunch channels on mine are fine, very quiet. OD1 and OD2 will make some noise but those channels have a TON of gain. You can solve the problem with a properly dialed in noise gate. This amp is awesome! I had the 50 and as we started playing bigger places I stepped up to the 100 watt version. JVM better than the vintage moderns, get this amp!

                Got this about 2 weeks ago. first impression was that it was beefy and mean looking in person.
                i noticed it was very sturdy and strong. very secure and theres no creaking or flexing. has strong corner guards. it took me about 2 days to find the tones i loved.Im playing it through my marshall 1960A cab and it can get disgustingly loud! \m/ it takes a little bit of tinkering as there is technically 12 modes. it is extremely versatille. I can play Chuck Berry all the way to Cannibal Corpse. And all the modes sounds great too. I play all kinds of stuff. from delta blues through Kansas,Kiss,ACDC, all the way to Meshuggah,Cannibal Corpse, Metallica,Megadeth and more. Trust me it will do it all great! It sounds astonishing and right in your face, tons of gain for anything you need.

                All though musicians friend did send me a broken one first. with ease they arrangd a new one, grat amp!

                  You can get any Marshall amp tone out of this head. It is one of the best heads for rock playing. Any metal or Gibson guitar sounds great or even a Strat on the green clean channel gets an awesome Hendrix tone.

                        been playing for 30+ years, always used Marshall. this amp sounds as good if not better than all the vintage jcm 800's I have owned over the years. And more versatile. very pleased. really no cons, unless you want to count the hum. every Marshall I had hummed., not really a big deal for me.

                              Clean is sweeter than my Deville. Crunch is OMG AC/DC. Overdrive channels are Metal! None of my other amps can hold a candle to it.

                                Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM410H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

                                Firstly, I am in a bar/party cover band of older (>30 years to nearly 60) musicians with day jobs. We are not all Recent Hits, but do mostly songs people have heard of in all years from mid 60s to this year. The flexibility of this head is its big feature for someone like me. This is not a prescriptive review -- this is just how I use it.

                                Some of the skeptics have wondered why you would need 4 channels with 3 tones each. They have a good point, but not one that applies to a cover band.

                                If I had to have one amplifier, it would have to produce the tones that this amp can do on channel 2 (crunch) green and orange, and channel 3 (OD1) green and orange. Crunch orange and OD1 green are quite similar and are the tones of the classic plexis and old Marshalls. Crunch green is what you would want for "clean" tone with a Marshall level of compression and just a little breakup for an electric guitar. OD1 at orange is what you would do for distorted classic rock -- adding an overdrive in front of a plexi or a very saturated pickup, for example. For every song I really like, and everything I would do if I wasn't doing covers, those two channels at those two colors would cover it.

                                For gigs, I can set channel 1 (clean) and Channel 4 (OD2) to be more extreme. The clean channel is actually what i use to be my acoustic guitar and occasionally as my hollow body electric emulating an acoustic. It is not perfect, nor is as good as having a specialized acoustic amp or clean tone jazz amp. However, it is good enough, and it simplifies the signal path to not have separate amps, and there is enough separate EQ to make it work.

                                Channel 4 can be used for dirtier, more distorted stuff, and the weird thing is that now I use it entirely for country. My band doesn't do any metal, and the heaviest guitar sounds we do are the likes of Carrie Underwood.

                                Getting the hiss to go away is not that big of a deal -- put an MXR Smart Gate or any other gate I've tried into the _serial_loop_ and twist the knobs -- it will take care of the problem. The JS head might be better and I haven't tried it. I do appreciate that you can't use the OD channels on this without a noise gate, but it isn't a big dial to fix. The reverb is good but nothing special.

                                Reading this review before submitting, I realize that the oddest thing is that I personally have no use for any of the red versions of the four channels. That is probably a classic rock attitude -- this thing has a lot more metal tone than I will ever use, so you should use other reviews if you want that.

                                Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM410H 100W Tube Guitar Amp Head:

                                Since it is a tube amp you need to turn it on for 10 -30 minutes to get the best tone. Most all of the controls sound great at 12 o'clock. Then you can use all of the 12 channels to dial in the right sound. After that the finishing touches of the tone come from your fingers. (bone tone)

                                The clean channels sound really good as well as all levels of overdrive from blues, rock, to metal. Not sure but dedicated metal guitarists without the need for versatility along these lines may want to get something German boutique.

                                The nice thing is it sounds like a Marshall with lots of tweak-ability. Since this is an industry standard you can sound on point over a lot of music genres. As with any amp the right pairing with guitar is essential.
