The Amp Built Specifically for Joe Satriani!Built to please Joe Satriani himself, the Marshall JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition amp head lets you plug into the exact same tone machine as Satch does. When Joe returned to playing Marshall amps in 2009, he quickly decided the JVM410H was the amplifier for him - allowing a few tweaks of course. Joe requested custom-voiced channels, noise gates instead of reverb, feedback that was more controllable, and a more dynamic sound - and Marshall came through in spades. Built to please one of the most iconic guitarists in music history, you'll love playing through the Marshall JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition amp head.
Marshall JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition Amplifier Head at a Glance:
Four channel versatility, voiced by Joe Satriani
When it comes to tone, Satch knows what he likes. For the JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition, Joe took his favorite tonal blend and put them all in one amplifier. The clean channel is actually the same design featured in Marshall's LM6100. The orange crunch channel is the same design as the JCM800 (2203), and the red crunch channel is similar to the AFD100 amp head in AFD mode. And the overdrive channels have been tuned to sound less compressed and more dynamic and open. Once the tonal palette was perfect, Joe put his stamp of approval on the JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition.
Built-in noise gates
Each of the four channels on the JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition amp head feature a noise gate (from the 2203KK Kerry King signature amp head), instead of the reverb normally found on the stock JVM410. So for every tone setting you create, you can fine-tune the noise gate for the perfect response. There's an added benefit to the noise gate too - faster switching! The complex circuit switching in the JVM410 meant switching channels took around 50 milliseconds - not a problem, but noticeable to ultra-fast players like Satch. Marshall says adding the noise gate circuitry enabled faster switching, only 5-10ms. So even if your playing style requires fast and constant channel switching, the JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition amplifier is ready to keep up.
A more dynamic JVM410
Tight, compressed-sounding guitar tone was in style for a while, one of the reasons the JVM410 is such a popular amp. Joe Satriani wanted a more dynamic, open sound for the JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition. Marshall modified the power supply, added a choke, and voila - the sound opened up, with a powerful voice that retained the dynamics of Satch's playing. If you like your guitar tone to sound expansive, you'll love playing through the JVM410 Joe Satriani Edition.

What took them so long to make this?
by Rich from PAI've had this amp for a while now. Getting it was a looong wait with several stated release dates passing by & no amp being released. Highly anticipated. Highly frustrating. I bothered Paul Rowan & ot... read more [+]her Sweetwater professionals with "where is it" emails over the months. I had music and recording waiting! I was expecting historic greatness from this amp.

When Satriani described what he was asking for, he sounded like my dream amp representative, as he proved to be.
The bottom line was that Sweetwater could not ship what they didn't have but they came through with speed and great service as only Sweetwater does as soon as Marshall set these things free, so... apologies to the Sweetwater crew for being a nuisance and thanks for coming through!
Absolutely worth the wait. Historic greatness indeed.
I've owned quite a few amps including numerous Marshall amps. I've dragged them from studios to clubs, pubs, piers, parks and other venues for decades. I even played in a pit once in Queens, NY, looking at knee caps! THAT was a really weird gig.
Amp sounds and response preferences are personal, but Marshall has been the defining answer for so many through the last 50 years and it is definitely my preference. It's NOT just about gain & volume as so many other amp companies seem to primarily focus on, but about establishing tone and feel and adding the crank element as only Marshall can.
I've played through the original JVM410H and it is a great, Marshall edged competetive charge through the field of high gain & volume amp companies that I just described, but I expected (and needed) more of the "historic" part of Marshall tones and response that established Hard Rock, Metal and Rock through the 60s, 70s & 80s, (The time periods when most of the great legends took Marshall amps and forged the path that inspired the rest of us.)
WHat I expected in the original JVM410H is actually in this JVM410HJS. There is still a lot of high gain in the OD channels and raw, chunky, hard rocking sounds in the crunch channel. There are some absolutely beautiful clean sounds in the 3 clean channel options. The most obvious difference between the original and the JS models is that the JS model has the classic Marshall power section tone bringing the preamp sounds to the speakers. There's no place like home!
The preamp sounds are EQ'd differently than the the original JVM. There is a mid shift option on the OD channels to bring you closer to the sounds of the original JVM. I make use of the mid shift gain AND the JS EQ'd gain. Great sounds. I had a TC Electronic D TWO in the serial effects loop until this week and that sounded absolutely incredible, especially on the 2290 setting. I recently bought an uncertified preowned TC Electronic G Force. Also incredible, but with a tuner and more effects. The G Force was a little noisy in the serial effects loop, but I put it in the other loop (preamp out/power amp in) and it pretty much rules the world after spending time getting sounds together. I think the D TWO delays may be slightly better (more open), but the G Force delays are really great. Using both is an option, but I'll likely just use the G Force to shrink the rack.
That would be the whole rig. Between the JVM410HJS and the G Force, there is no place I can't go. I don't recommend leaving rack gear on top of the head (even slightly elevated) because it makes the rack units hot and blocks airflow from the head, likely shortening tube life.
If you want the brighter side of the classic Marshall sound, this amp and a brighter sounding pick up will get you in that neighborhood. An EQ pedal or EQ in one of the loops would help too (you'd have to experiment), but the amp does does get bright if you set it bright. It's a warmer bright more than a thin bright though. It'll take you towards Slash, but not as bright as say, Neil Young.
I can tell you that this amp can cover many sounds. Just this one head. I have been testing that statement out recording some diverse project ideas. I'm highly impressed and playing more than I have in years just because of how great this amp sounds. The noise gates are also much better than the several that I've used in the past. They are very gentle in the way that they turn on to gate the noise, but you can set them to be more abrupt too. As I saw in another review here, I also recommend a Marshall 1960 cab with this.
This amp is pro gear. It has a pro gear price, but I have to say that I've been around the guitar-gig-studio-gear block more than a few times & I expect it to be a future legend. When more of these start to show up at gigs, other bands' guitarists will take notice and the rest will be history. A very small learning curve and a parting of cash, but I expect it to be the last amp that I and other guitarists will ever own!
GREAT AMP! close [-]
Lives up to the hype
by Curtis Hill from Southern CaliforniaI've had this amp for about 3 weeks. I read all of the reviews in the magazines and must say it lives up to all of the hype. Very versatile-you can get so many different sounds out of it-from amazing ... read more [+]cleans to down and dirty metal. There is no reverb, Joe replaced it with noise gates-and they work wonderfully...you'll need a separate reverb pedal or rack-mounted reverb if reverb is a must-have. The 6-button pedal is so easy to program. The silent recording mode works great! The amp is expensive, but it works wonderfully, is built like a tank (in England, not subcontracted to a pacific nation) and provides wonderful tones. The master volume allows you to crank the channel volumes and still maintain your sanity when practicing in a smaller environment without the need for a power brake or hot plate. All in all, there are very few musical items I have spent this much for that I have felt were worth every penny...but this is one of them. Matches perfectly with a Marshall 1960 4x12 cabinet. I have played through it with my '57 Les Paul Reissue and '99 American Strat, both sounded amazing. Utilizing the crunch channel with my Kramer Nightswan brought back the 80's by sounding like the shredder guitar being played through a cranked JCM800...and there's still the two OD channels after that. If you are considering this amp and you have the means to get it, don't hesitate...it's worth it! close [-]

Playbility: I often play in the red mode OD1 with the gain at 3 o'clock (fairly high) and from there i usually back off my guitar volume to get that
clean tone... and Voila! This amp cleans up very nicely.
Overall Sound : If your looking for that legendary signature marshall sound, you wont get that in the jvm 410hjs. IMHO
But what you get in this amp is satch unique tone on each n' every channel. (of course,satch is known for playing marshall amp for many years)
I was blown away by how close this amp could sound simillar (if not the same) to joe's tone on that Chickenfoot Get Your Buzz On DVD. If you are listening to cf and want to duplicate that big fat warm and organic guitar sound and want to applied to your own thing, than this is the only amp that could delivered that very unique sound. End of story, this is the real thing!
Thanks to Jim Marshall (RIP), Santiago Alvarez, everyone at Marshall and the man himself, Mr. Satriani for creating this beautifull amp. It's a classic... close [-]
