Marshall set out to create an amp that can do it all with the JVM series. But also one that is manageable and affordable. More times than not, when you try to put the best of different elements into one masterpiece, the quality diminishes: not true with the JVM. While the folks at Marshall created a package deal, they did so without sacrificing that renowned Marshall sound.

The JVM has one 12-inch speaker, which gives it enough juice to do some serious damage, and makes it more manageable than lugging around a cabinet with four 10’s. There are 2 major channel settings; Clean/Crunch and Overdrive. Both have multiple gain options within the channel, and can be controlled manually on the face of the amp, or with the sleek four-button Marshall foot-switch. The tonal adjustments are controlled with five knobs for each channel, including Presence and Resonance control. Both channels also have their own Reverb adjustment, which makes things much more efficient when switching back and forth between channels. The JVM is also MIDI supportable.

Perhaps the most stand-out element of the JVM is the high gain potential and range. There is enough drive in this amp to give off a screeching lead, while maintaining the purity and quality of the Marshall sound. In other words, when its cranked to a higher level, it delivers. Each channel gives a solid performance without diminishing quality.

This high quality amp is well worth the money, and will not leave you disappointed if you are an advocate of Marshall gear.
