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

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!

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.

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

This amp is Quality. Quality all over. Solid construction with good heavy wood, quality knobs and switches, Big heavy 85 lbs of Quality. The clean is as clean as a Fender clean, the gain channel is perfect and the tone knobs work, they really change the tone with just slight tweeks. The ultra channel just screams, feedsback and is solid strong. You can hear the chord and note definition perfectly, not muddy. The speakers are giant, giant magnets and are chrome. It has a cab out jack with 16,8,or 4 ohm switch. It has a line out with volume knob, and an effects loop with volume knob. The tubes are incased in a heavy metal mesh type screen to protect them, this thing is grade A !! This is a fine piece of equipment. The tone is superior, strong and loud. Very clear note definition, this amp will make you sound good. You do get what you pay for. I have sent back Fenders and Epiphones and sold my MSD100 Marshall, this will be my last amp, it does it all. It is a Monster !! I have not yet hooked my POD Live into it, It was to sweet all alone. But I will.

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I've had this bad boy for about 6 months now and I finally feel that I can give it a real review. I'll start with the sound. The clean channel is nice, though not a Fender clean, mostly because of the EL34s. When paired with a good quality octave (I use the POG) it can have a nice old bluesy breakup. By itself, it's good for darker sounds, like jazz. The crunch channel is great. I used to have a Peavey Classic 50 212 (which is an incredible amp) and wanted something with a similar sounding drive channel. The JSX has that and more. The range of this channel is greater than that of the Classic 50 because it has a lot more distortion (again because of the EL34s), but you can't really dial in just a little crunch with this channel. If you tweek the clean channel, you can get just the right amount of break up. The ultra channel is awesome. I'm not a metal guy, but I wanted an amp that has an over the top gain channel for soloing. And that's exactly what you get with this channel. If you cut the middle and crank the high and low and crank the noise gate, you get a nice scooped sound. All three channels are a little difficult to dial in, but once it's there, it's really there.All of the features are great. The clean channel is a basic clean channel, but the crunch and ultra channels both have a 'Fat' switch for thickening up the sound. They work very well. WIth the 'Presence' and 'Resonance' knobs you can, respectively, further dial in more high end or low end. The footswitch is great, though a little confusing at first. Once you get used to it, it's butter. I only use the effects loop for running louder effects like the POG and Fulltone Octafuzz (BTW, if you can find one of these, get it). It blends perfectly with the crunch channel to create a nice thick, really broken up sound. One little unexpected feature is the noise gate. It works well, but not as well as some other more expensive noise gates. But isn't that always the case? Another nice little feature is that the amp is set up for either EL34s or 6L6s. If you want a brighter, cleaner sound, simply change the power tubes to taste.This amp is great for all types of guitars. I have an American Standard Strat and a custom made Strat with a Hot Rails in the bridge and a Cool Rails in the middle. Both guitars sound incredible through this amp. The only reason I gave it 4.5 on the features is because this baby is H E A V Y!!! I've had heavy amps in the past, but this one is by far the heaviest. It's a real pain to transport it, so I recommend getting something to carry it in with wheels. Bottom line- get this amp. It ain't cheap, but it is well worth the money!!

This amp crushes brass balls

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

This is the most versatile amp ever. Amazing cleans, ripping crunch, and a lead channel that sustains for days. I don't turn the gain past 5 on either dirty channels and I find my self with more than enough tube saturation. The half poewr switch, fat switches, noise gate, and footswitchable fx loop are just icing on a 3 layer cake (each channel has its own layer...haha). But enough of my stupid ass jokes...go buy this tone demon.

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

Love the sound of this amp! I own a 5150 half stack and a Ultra 60 and this amp beats them both. All the Channels sound great. A perfect amp for anything from Country to Hard Rock. The Nu-Metal guys may not like it(not ulta high gain). I went my local music store at least once a week for a year before I bought one and I don't regret it. Issue: #1 Very heavy...this thing will give you a hernia. #2 The factory tubes aren't the best. I had to have all the pre-amp tubes replaced in the first month of use. #3 Peavey does not make a slip cover for this and many of their amps.

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

First time I've ever given tens across the board for a guitar product.What I find impressive is that this amp sounds great even with low volume. I don't want to wake my neighbors, so I barely have it on one in the heavy distortion mode when I'm at home, and still it sounds pretty darned good!But like with any tube amp... crank it up, and the true tone comes through. Put it up to four, and play it for a while THEN. Wow, it sounds like JUNK at 1! Move the volume knob up to 8, and THAT'S where this amp's true beauty shines. It's remarkably loud, and I don't see it needing to be replaced with a cab, let alone mic'd.Three channels is sweet, all with their distinct 'flavor'. Clean tone is also gorgeous and clear. Very resonant amp with a lot of tone. Well worth it.

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

BUY THIS AMP!! I've had this amp for over a year, I've gigged with it a lot. This amp has taken quite a beating, and hardly any scratches. The sound quality is so awesome! It will cover any style of music you can dish out! The thing that I love about it is that you can hook up a 412 cab with it also. The only thing that would be a smart add on is to get some el chepo casters. And be sure to put some WD40 on the ball berrings so that it will roll straight. Just get some small screws that are the same size as the ones that are used to attach the slider feet. and use those to attach the casters to the bottom of the amp. THIS WILL COME IN HANDY!!! This amp weighs around the upper 90s - the light 100s

awesome versatile amp!

By paulscape

from expat in china

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

This amp is wicked! I love this amp because it offers rock versatility with modern simplicity. Sounds great at low volumes and sensational at rehearsal and giging volumes.Here's how I use it. Clean channel is lush and rich by itself. Great for all sorts of playing and strumming. It sounds beautiful played delicately at high volumes. Very warm. The combo has a very decent spring reverb too. I sometimes hit an overdrive pedal on the clean channel with minimal gain to make it dirtier for those SRV blues. The crunch channel is awesome for rythmn's and that classic ACDC/led zeppelin sound. Also good for alternative stuff like foo fighters. Add the overdrive for extra solo sustain ala Gary Moore. Liquid gold. I also use an MXR EQ through the FX loop on some songs to bring certain frequencies forward, add fat ass bass tighness or to change the amps tone towards a more van halen plexi sound. I have the crunch channel on half gain...on full gain its also cool for solo's. The ultra channel I use purely for solo's or metal songs. The gain is not brutal, just right for shred solo's and metal rythmn. Scoop the mids and you have a more modern sounding gain but I prefer a classic rock higher in mids tone. I use some other modulation, wah and delay effects but they are mainly for colour. The amps natural tones are superb... I have experimented enhancing the amp with overdrive and EQ etc but always end up using them conservatively, returning to the raw amps dynamics. In some ways that experimentation has confirmed to me what a great amp this is! Its a heavy amp - I had to buy a trolley for it...but its worth lugging it around when you hear its tone cranked up and saturated.I thoroughly recommed you check this amp out. Ive never enjoyed an amp as much as this... it covers a lot of ground without hassles and endless rows of buttons.

This thing RULES

By Phloston Paradise

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I bought this amp used a few months ago and I'm now selling off my other amps. It does it all! The clean channel is UNBELIEVABLE. I run a Les Paul Standard through it and I'm blown away every time. It's the best clean I've ever heard with a humbucker. Don't let anyone tell you it's "Fender clean" because it's not. It's a different clean altogether but EQUALLY as amazing. The crunch channel is amazing as well! Very hard rock! And the Ultra channel will blow your mind! This is truly a channel you only want to reserve for leads and the very occasional chunking! Also very loud! I haven't gigged with it yet but I know I won't need to break into the 120w setting because the 60 is SO loud as it is! This thing is also heavy as all get out but it's rock solid. Highly recommend!The only thing keeping me from giving it a 10 overall is that I wish the crunch channel had a tiny but more definition to it. The overdrive channels are definitely ROCK/metal but for any blues or anything where you might need a more subtle overdrive you're definitely going to need a pedal. Maybe I haven't had it up loud enough yet?

JSX 212

Ask me a question

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

I sold my 5150 for something smaller, and the JSX212 really has a big sound that was not a step down from the 5150, although the sound is different from the 5150. I love that there are 3 channels- one clean, two distortion, which allows for one distortion channel for rhythm and another for leads that you can set at a slightly higher volume. The only imperfection with the JSX212 is that the clean channel is pretty crunchy and isn't truly "clean." I wish they would have given the clean channel a true clean tone since there are 2 other "dirty" channels that one could fool around with. Luckily I don't use the clean channel for very many songs. Another nice thing about both distortion channels is that you can get a good variety of tones from either channel by fooling around w/ the bass/mid/treble, and also by playing with the presence/resonance. The "fat" toggle switches don't really seem to do much to tell the truth. Overall, a great amp. Pretty costly, but if you can afford it, it's stupendous!
