Tube flexibility and punch with easy-to-get modern screaming distortion.
This Half Stack includes the Peavey JSX Joe Satriani Signature guitar amp head and the JSX 412 speaker cabinet.
The Peavey JSX Joe Satriani Signature Amp Head tears up the competition. Joe Satriani is undoubtedly one of the greatest guitar players of all time, and Peavey has built him an amp with the sound, feel, and flexibility he's always sought. With a punchy gain structure that boosts your playing with authority, this Peavey amp delivers sounds ranging from Classic 50 to vintage British, modern Triple XXX, and all the in-between tones.
The versatile and comprehensive control section supplies a master volume pot and independent volume knobs for each of the three channels (Ultra, Crunch, and Clean). Tone shaping is accomplished through passive controls for Bass, Mid, and Treble on the Clean channel, while the Ultra and Crunch channels use active Bottom, Body, and Hair (lo, mid, hi) controls. The Clean channel is pristine yet warm and is specifically voiced to work well with effects pedals. The Ultra and Crunch channels on the Peavey Joe Satriani signature amp have gain controls and fat switches to further assist in taming this thunderous tube-powered beast while achieving killer sound.
Global resonance and presence knobs increase control of high-end tones, while a noise gate on the Crunch and Ultra channels cuts down on the excess noise generated by running the gain and EQ controls on high settings. Since the gate is fully adjustable, you can really clamp down, leave it slightly open, or just turn it off.
The Peavey JSX uses 3 - 12AX7 preamp tubes and 4 - EL34 power amp tubes. The power amp section delivers an earth-quaking 120W of pure tube power and can be converted to 4 - 6L6GC. It is also designed to work equally well into 4-, 8-, or 16-ohm loads.
With 400W of continuous power handling and four 12" custom JSX speakers, the Peavey JSX 412 Speaker Cabinet is the perfect complement to the JSX amplifier. Co-designed by Satriani, the JSX 412 speaker cab features a microphone-simulated XLR direct output so you get Joe's live, onstage tone (speakers remain active when direct output is used) without using a separate mic and stand.
Made in the USA.
Please note, this half stack includes the straight version of the JSX 412 cabinet, not the angled cabinet pictured.

This amp is simply incredible, and is hands down one of the most versatile amps out there. I play everything from extreme high gain metal to acoustic like cleans and fluid neoclassical shredding, and this amp nails all genres with impeccable accuracy. For high gain, it has all the gain you'll ever need, and I find is better voiced with 6L6's rather than the stock EL34's. Plenty of low end for devastating rhythm tracks, or plenty of high end and beautiful mids for cutting through the heavy rhythm with creamy fluid leads. The cleans on this amp are immaculate, beyond any high gain amps clean channel, its sparkly and crisp yet stays warm and full sounding. The Crunch channel is a lot like a pushed JCM 800. I've played with a lot of high end amps on the market, and this seems to be my last stop in my quest for tone. The only aspect I find this amp is missing is a reverb control, but other than that it has a 3 track EQ for EACH channel, it has a FAT switch for the Lead and crunch channels, which give it extra low end and gain. It a presence and resonance controls, giving you all the tools in sculpting your own unique OR generic tone. Honestly, if you're looking for versatility, this is EXACLTY what you should be looking at, you won't regret it, I guarrantee it.
this is the greatest head ever for metal! I love it! this thing has so much crunch. I had a marshall avt 150 and was impressed with it untill I heard the jsx, then I sold the marshall and bought one. the clean channel is great and the dirty ones just get better and better, meaner and meaner.
This amp is MASSIVE! I can't think of any other way to describe it. Just go and buy one, tell your neighbors to just calm down... and EXPERIENCE what real tone is all about! Don't worry, the Misses will get over it... eventually!
I played on of these at a music store in my area.I own a 6505+ and I figured I'd try one of these because I fan of Joe and I also wanted to try more amps out than just my 6505+. The JSX is a very balanced sounding amp. Its Not as a loud as a 6505+ off the get go but it can compete. However its clean is way better than the 6505+, its crunch channel has a gain that sounds better to my ears than the 6505+'s crunch setting. The Ultra channel on the JSX is basically its crunch channel with more gain. Now dont get me wrong I love my 6505+, the 2 amps are voiced very different so one cant really say which is better unless they are dedicated to one style of voicing. The JSX is more of a british voiced amp and the 6505+ an american voiced amp.Anyways looking at the JSX its a nice amp, plenty of gain, responsive EQ, Fat switches which are nice they add a nice thickness to your tone. Its also a very nice looking amp. However the price is its flaw, its not terribly expensive, but as i was trying out other amps that day i plugged into a 3120, and I realized the Peavey 3120 and JSX sound very similar. So it is almost worth it to get the 3120 instead, unless you are getting this amp just because your a satch fan. Otherwise get a 3120.
I have had this amp for about 5 months now and I love it. I play extreme metal and a lot of clean stuff. For metal this amp is brutal! The high gain is perfect for brutal death metal, I use a BBE sonic maximizer and it really turns the JSX into a beast. The clean channel is also great, very clear sound that is soothing to any ear. Only thing this amp lacks is reverb but it shouldn't be a big deal getting one. By the way I use a PRS custom 24 and an Ibanez RG550.
I have had my JSX half-stack for about 10 months. I play a PRS Custom 24 and an early 90s Yamaha RGZ (back when Yamaha tried to enter the superstrat market that Ibanez dominated). I spend most of my time in the Crunch channel and find it adds plenty of gain for most applications. You can crank the gain for crunchy metal or back it off and get really nice warm classic rock tones. The Crunch channel handles leads very well too. The Ultra channel has a crazy amount of gain - I rarely use it or need it. Personally, I would have preferred to have two Crunch channels to switch between because I like the voicing better, but I understand I am in the minority in that respect. The resonance, noise gate, and fat switches are nice touches to the amp, and the only missing feature in my book is reverb (which you can get if you buy the combo instead). As for the cab, I bought it because I was very interested in the built-in speaker simulator for recording. It works pretty well, particularly for leads - they come through very smooth (nicely compressed) and articulate.
I bought this amp because I needed a versatile amp and it's suited me well. The Crunch channel is to me, perfect. I can cover AC/DC to Led Zeppelin to Cream, its just good clean overdrive. I use it for blues too. The Ultra channel gives you all the gain you need. I use it to play Dream Theater, and other metal/prog. The clean channel however is terrible. Even with chorus and delay it still sounds bad. Also, this amp doesnt come with reverb which is a huge turn off for me. Once I bought a reverb pedal, however, this amp shined. You'll have to tweak the amp for awhile to get a good tone, but once you find a good tone, you'll love it.
This amp is a very well built amp. The tone shaping is amazing. I love high gain amps, but i really like amps that can take that high gain and use it in a vintage type of tone with getting all crackly. This amp does that very well. Also I was fond of they how crystal clear the clean channel is. it has great bass response along with that tight clicky sound of the pick hit the high notes. Overall this amp is amazing.
I own this amp, and it is an incredible amp.. I am new to tube amps.. but I had a Mesa Boogie Roadster and it quit on me within the first month of owning it.. so I traded it in and got the JSX.. and i can honestly say that It really does have the tone just like Satch.. I will recommend the amp to anyone. I personally play the amp in church and it's sound it incredible.
