EEEHhh I'll pass! - Reviews Marshall JVM410C

This is the exact same amp as the Marshall JVM 410H but just in a combo version. You will have all the same tone and features as you would with the head. However, the amp may sound different since it is coming out of a 2x12 cab rather than a 4x12 cabinet. This is stating the obvious I know, but just to let the people who are just coming into this type of market know ahead of time.

Perhaps I didn't give it a fair shake but I just couldn't get past how much noise this thing had. Plus it felt cheap to me. The sound was similar to a Line 6 simulator. It didn't feel natural at all. Nothing about this amp felt like a real amp except maybe channel one or two.

I used all kinds of guitars with this thing to make it sound good such as Strats, Tele, LP's, Wolfgang and even a Rickenbacker. Nothing could make this thing sound natural. Allow me to preface this by saying I had owned a Splawn QR and comparing the two was not fair. The Splawn was so far superior that it was pointless to even keep this amp. This amp wasn't even in the same league.


My opinion on this amp is to pass it up. Get a DSL 100 if you want high gain Marshall or get a JCM 800, modify it or slap a SD-1 in front for about have the price as this amp. If you want to buy an amp with high gain Marshall tones then get a Quickrod. If you want a huge low end amp then get a Nitro. Just don't waste your time with this amp.

I would not recommend this amp to anyone. At new prices they are over $2600. At used you may find it as good as I did for $1600. Save half that and get an DSL. Or save part and buy an 800 or a used Splawn. There are many better options out there to be had than this amp.
