Better than the four channel.

Marshall JVM205CPublished on 05/25/11 at 14:37
To me this amp is better than the four channel. The four channel is a bit of an overfill for me since there is a lot of replication in the channels. The two channels is the way to go with this series. Still though the amps sounds cold out of the box and you will be inclined to get a new set of tubes and biased for more warmth.


Marshall JVM205 50-watt 2 x 12" Tube Amplifier Combo Features:

All-tube design: 5 x12AX7, 2 x EL34 (50-watt) or 4 x EL34 (100-watt)
Two totally independent, footswitchable channels - clean/crunch and overdrive
Each channel has three footswitchable modes - Green, Orange, and Red
Each Mode has switch memory (reverb on/off, effects loop on/off,...…

SOUNDS

The only problem with this amp is the cold stiff feeling right out of the box. This is typical with Marshall's in the new box. They need a bit of setup to them to get them to sound warm and more usable.

This amp takes off where the JCM2000 left off. I much more prefer the JCM2000 but this amp isn't too bad. It has more flexibility with midi and the effects loop controls. Plus the voicing in each channel is a nice touch to dial in exactly what you want. I like the red channel on the gain channel. It is pretty heavy and thick sounding. A bit noisy with this amp compared to the JCM2000 which had some noise but not nearly like this amp. It is due to the amount of gain on tap of this one compared to the 2000.

OVERALL OPINION

This is a fun amp to play. Not too much to get confused with and not too much to get overwhelming that would distract you from playing the amp. At new these amps come in at around $1700 which is a bit more than the Marshall JCM2000.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to get a good sounding Marshall amp but doesn't want to get a Plexi and a JCM 800 or JCM2000. You can get almost as close as you would get to those tones but in just one amp.

UTILIZATION

I find the amp rgler easy, we get easily the sound you're looking for every knob has a direct action on the sound really was not going around in a vacuum, the range of r adjuster leaves a large margin of freedom.
The manual's usefulness to understand how to configure the pdalier but nothing more because everything is very simple.
I wish that this amp is prciser use reasonable volume, but you will not resist a long time before getting a bit + the volume to feel the roar of two speakers, and l. .. what sound!

SOUNDS

For sound, what to say! trs is subjective but for me, it's perfect, I rgale. Of the hottest blues to hard rock's most cutting edges. The clean sound is not lagging behind either, and why not a well mtal, casual, a little less convincing as I believe it.
What is certain is that I do not regret taking the 2X12 combo because the sound is terribly pais, we feel the mdium - mdium low rumbling. grr grr!

OVERALL OPINION

I recently what I like most is to regain its easy to marshall and this same rglage all volumes.
I prfre a mesa rect o verb that I had the opportunity to play from time to time with a friend in 4X12 combo and a mesa ... but rather it must be said that a mtalleux him. lol!

To try it, this is terrible 2X12 combo to enter the high end only 1400 euros!
