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.

I was a little worried about this amp, because there's only a few decent demos on youtube showing this amp.
But once I turn on and Play a E chord , I knew it was the TONE I was looking for. A really nice clean sound for a tube Marshall amp . With this ( clean ) and the crunch channel , this amp can take it from 60's rock / blues to 80's hard rock / Heavy Metal .Od 1 and Od 2 has LOAD OF GAIN. Maybe to much for some people . Certainly you can play any kind of METAL out of this head. A quick tip : If you're about to use any of the overdriven channels on RED MODE , keep the gain knob no more than 3 or 4 . Raising more than that , will give you a lot of hiss .This head also come with a Digital Reverb an it's also midi programmable . My last words : If you love MARSHALL AMPS , you'll love the JVM .

I own a Marshall JCM 2000 TSL and I have to say the the JCM series absolutely blows away this new JVM. I have played the JVM several times and the local music store and I am anything but impressed by the so called "Marshall of all Marshalls". Its not a terrible amp but its not worth the money either. This amp is full of useless channels. Who honestly uses that many channels other than new guitarist who havent developed an ear for the sound they want. Aside from that the high gain channel was almost "Hissing" at me and really just over the top. I would really sit down and play this amp before you go out and buy it because for much less you can still find the TSL and DSL JCM's out there. Both are much better amps than this.

HIGH GAIN WITH HIGH HISS

Ask me a question

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

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.

    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.

    Best Marshall I Have Ever Owned

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

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

    I have been playing for over 40 years. I have owned at least one of everything. This is the most fun I have ever had with any amp hands down.I played it for a year playing stock and loved it and after the warranty ran out I did the R108 mod and installed a Mercury Magnetics choke in place of R108 and also put in a Mercury Magnetics output transformer. I Wish I Had Another 40 Years To Play with this puppy!!!! After this mod this amp will do Any Venue from Yes!! Country To Metal! And about all you need is a bit of delay. When I die I hope I Get To Take It With Me!

    The best Marshall Ever

    By trusoundstudios

    from Colorado Springs, CO

    See all my reviews

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

    This is THE Marshall. 4 channels, 3 modes each, from clean jtm45, all the way up to super hot rodded JCM 800. this is the holy grail of marshall amps. This amp has converted many Mesa Boogie purists to Marshall, including myself. Don't beleive me, check out the JVM forum. The designer of the JVM has worked with Slash, Y.J. Malmstein, and now he's working on a new JVM signature amp for Joe Satriani.

    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.

    Hey, I've had this amp since 2008. It rocks. This amp has this magic to it I can't explain. Everything sounds better. It adds something sweet.
    Love Love Love it.
    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.
    Zero issues.

    Massive Disappointment

    By max_tone

    from USA

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

    I have owned this amp for 2 months now but, I am assuming I will eventually be able to have it repaired. I have owned 1 Ampeg and currently own 3 Vox amps. I have not had one moments trouble from any them but, my first Marshall valve has been nothing but, trouble. This is my first and my last with Marshall.
    The JVM410H has the most options of any amp out there with 4 channels and 3 settings (green, orange and red) per channel. 2 separate Master volume controls which can be programmed to the channels individually. The options are the best out there for a tube amp.
    Maybe I have a lemon. The OD2 channel is unusable in the orange or red modes due to hiss and hum. Techs said this was normal. I finally took a trip today to a local store where they had this exact amp head and found out the problem I am experiencing is not normal. With either orange or red setting on the amp I checked at the store and all settings at 12 0'clock, which with the master at 12 o'clock I would say this is cranked, there was a very small amount of hiss on red. I came home and tried the same test and the hiss was unbearable on the same settings on my amp. The cables I have work fine on other channels and with my other amps but, I picked up a new Mogami Gold just in case. The new cable made no difference.
    Compared to other amps of equal options the value is ok. If it worked correctly.

    Marshall's best by far

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

    I bought one of these new along with two 1960A and two 1960B cabs. I use this head as a preamp to my Marshall EL34-100/100 dual mono-block power amp. The mono-block then powers the 4 cabs.My USA Jacksons all love this combination, a little bit of overkill for your average small club gig, but outdoors this rig ROCKS!!The cleans I get from this head will crack crystal and the overdrive goes from slightly driven blues to mondo-thrash metal and everything in between. I've owned lots of Marshall's this head is their best.The Orange has a great tone, but no versatility, this head outdoes all others in its price range, hands down.

    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.

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

      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.
