OVERVIEW

Massive all-tube power!

The all-tube Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani combo amp is the fruit of a partnership between Peavey and legendary guitar virtuoso Satriani. The JSX 212 translates the tonal flexibility and responsive gain of the Peavey JSX Joe Satriani Signature amp head into a modern combo amp.

Augmenting the original JSX amp's 3-channel, 120W configuration are 2 custom-designed 12" JSX speakers in an open-back cabinet, reverb with master control, and a line out with level control. The Joe Satriani Peavey combo amp also includes global presence and resonance controls; 3-band EQ and level on each channel; FAT switches, and fully adjustable noise gates for the Ultra and Crunch channels.

"We designed the JSX 212 not only for practicality, but also for tone and versatility," says Satriani. "The amp's tone comes to life in a big way using this 2x12 design, and the relationship between the combo and the player sets up an interesting interplay that you can't get with a head. It's a special experience having the amp and speakers in one unit."

Made in the USA.

I picked this amp up around January and now I feel that I can give it a proper review.Clean channel:Very nice,especially with some chorus or moderate delay from my MXR carbon copy.The voicing is a bit on the dark side,which is great for jazz and other complex styles.The EQ is balanced well,and it retains dynamics even when pushed hard.This amp has a lot of headroom,so if you want a break up type sound then a low gain setting on the crunch channel would probably be your best bet.Crunch channel: Anything from bluesy break up to 80's rock.This is the channel to go for if you want classic rock and vintage distortion tones.I'm not a huge fan of it,but that isn't because it's bad,it's simply because I've never really been a mid-gain tone type of guitarist.Ultra channel:Now,this is where the amp really shines in my opinion.This channel oozes tight and dynamic modern high gain tones that are harmonically alive and clear as a bell.I exclusively play seven string guitars and the bass response on this channel makes the low B ring through without any muddiness at all.It's balanced well,like all the other channels,and can go from punk and 80's metal tones all the way to brutal modern metal.Throw an OD pedal in the mix and I don't see how you could need any more gain.Overall:With 3 versatile channels,voicing switches for the OD channels,a warm reverb,and a built in noise gate, this amp can handle just about anything you throw at it.It is a bit expensive,but the quality and sound is well worth the price.I've had mine or about a year and it has become an invaluable part of my sound both live and at home.Check it out if you get the chance,you owe it to yourself to play one of the most versatile amps out there.

I bought this amp after testing it out at a local music store off and on for a year. I own a 5150 half and a peavy ultra. I've been buying Peavey products since 1977 (my first used P.A. mixing board) and have never once had to return one due to a factory and/or design flaw....until now.The Good:All 3 channels sound great! The clean channel, while not super clean, is superb. Very warm sounding. The ultra and crunch channel are wide open, smooth break-up, with very good sustain. This is not an amp for nu-metal. More 80's/early 90's type of gain. Works well with the current pop or rock. This is a heavey amp. You will need to buy a rolling case of some type if you are going to gig with it. The Bad:The noise gate does not work all that well. My Rocktron Hush unit is a superior to the one built into this amp. The factory tubes are horrible. I had to take the amp back to the music store four time in the first six weeks I owned it (I've only owned 4 months of this writing). The tubes power tubes being shipped with the amp don't even meet Peavey's own spec's and my service guy has yet to receive a good set. And lastly, Peavey had a new warehouse order system that still does still has lots of bugs. I have a short in the impedance switch. 2 months later and I still do not have a switch. I've called and left a message for Sales Rep to call me back twice and they've never returned my calls. The Verdict:"Caveat emptor"...I love Peavey, but my patience is at it's end. Over the years I've bought and still own lot's of Peavey equipment. At this point, they need to do something to win me back. Peavey is not the company it used be. Hartley Peavey where are you?

Very versitile amp

By srvfan

from Wichita Falls, TX

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I've had this amp for a few years and I couldn't be happier. The first time I plugged into it, I knew it was the one for me. I did have an effects loop problem with my original amp where the sound would cut in and out with the effects button pushed, but my replacement amp has worked great...for the past 2 years. I gig a few times a month with this amp (play with a PRS custom 24) and have had so many compliments on my sound. The cleans are great, the crunch gives you the driving rock and roll sound and the ultra gives sustain for days. By the way, a Keeley modded tube screamer sounds so great with the clean setting! I'm able to pull off SRV through Ozzy with this amp. Love it!

Blows Up Every Other Day

By OcelotYou

from MI

See all my reviews

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I bought a Peavey JSX 212 about two months ago.Right out of the box it kept blowing fuses. Then a preamp tube blew up. I replaced it then a few more fuses blew. Then ALL the preamp tubes blew up. I have owned this amp for two months and have only gotten to play out of it for several hours.The JSX sounds great! But it performs terribly! Buy a 1970's music man 212 if you want a combo amp that sounds great AND performs great as well!

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I have not had a lot of experience with tube amps(I like the smooth cleans I get from my fender 1/2 stack)but when I plugged into this amp I said "now this is a good sounding amp." Well after a few visits to the store I have bought it. The clean is clear and bright where you want it and not muddy. The crunch and ultra channels will melt the walls. They are not clouded. They are laced with harmonics. Buy this thing if you can it is awesome. My only beef would be that the one little handle on the top just is not enough, this thing weighs a ton. Some 1/2 stack handles on the side would be a little better.

Fantastic sound, versatile amp

By HowieZone899

from NYC

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

Finally satisfied with my guitar sound. Three channels that each have their own identity. Clean sounds are not shimmering, but very nice. Channel two is my favorite. Fantastic tone and crunch. Actually can get a very very heavy Marshall meets Soldano tone out of this. Not quite the brown sound, but close. Channel three is hard to handle. Keep the gain down, and use it for solos only because it has a very noisy Mesa Boogie tone which I only find useful for solos.The only negatives are the odd footswitch functions and the weight. It is HEAVY!

A Genuine Honest Non-bias Review

By Rockonwell

from Daphne, AL

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I've been playing for years. I never write reviews, usually just read them. BUT - this thing is so awesome I had to say - trust my honest feedback that this is a FOREVER amp. You will never need or want another, and it can be used in your house, garage, studio, or on stage for all styles of guitar. (It excells in rock guitar!) Buy it! Buy it! Buy it!

Drum roll please...

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

Just got the amp and gave it a good workout with my stock PRS CE 22. I love this amp! It's exactly what I thought it would be. No "oh, well, I'm stuck with it" or "I wish I'd bought the Rivera or the Boogie". I got precisely what I hoped I'd get with this amp. The comments below include my view on some earlier review comments I had read about the JSX head, and wondered how they would pertain to the 212 combo (all IMO, obviously, not interested in an argument). The clean channel was not "sterile" in any way I could think of. Some elementary fiddling with my pickups and controls, and with the EQ on the amp, gave me everything from a warm "brown" tone to a focused, crystralline one. I was especially impressed with its ability to take a higher guitar-volume setting while still maintaining the integrity of the tone. The Crunch channel is as advertised; articulate, responsive, flexible. Fat switch (on this and on Ultra) made noticeable difference in overall tone. If you don't venture into Metal-land, you can get most everything you want in here. But...The Ultra channel is well-named. It's probably going to take a while for me to learn how to use this one effectively, but I can tell you that I got nothing from it that could be thought of as a "shrill" or "brittle" tone, although I suppose the sheer power of what comes out on this channel could lead one to that conclusion. Again, even minimal time spent adjusting your instrument and amp will have a noticeable effect on tone. BTW, so will using the half-power switch! The thing is built like a tank, and is heavy as hell. Could the footswitch be more intuitive? Yeah, it could, but for cryin' out loud...All amps (including those I looked at before buying this one) have both strengths and limitations, and I will no doubt find more of each as I spend time with this amp (as I would have with the three-times-as-expensive Road King, for example). However, for what I play (what most would refer to as Classic Rock) I have heard nothing better, lots that were not as good, and (with apologies to Hartley Peavey) nothing with the value-to-price ratio of this one.

Extremely Versitile Tube Combo

By Jazz Shreder

from katy,tx

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

When I first got this bad boy I was kinda expecting more after I saw that there was a 120 watt XXX, but after playing around on both, this combo blew the XXX out of the water with its fender-esque cleans, Crunch channel that handles blues and classic rock well, and an ultra channel good for any gain (think mesa meets marshall crunch).by far the best tube combo in its price range. blows out fenders, and marshalls. If your looking for shimmering cleans, blanced but still heavey distortion this amp is for you.
