Marshall JVM215C
This is the same amp as the JVM 210C but with just one speaker instead of two. You get the same features and tone but just in a more compact cabinet and smaller tone.

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.

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.


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 $1599 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.

Marshall JVM215C
- What kind of amplification (lamp, transistor, ...)?
Amp and prampli lamps.

- What is the DLivre power?
50 watts ... that is more than enough to rpets and concerts. I hesitated at the beginning, but eventually Why this to have a 100 watt we can not push these days? at least the 50 watts, it uses its power more easily. The sound systems are so powerful ...

- What are the rglages, effects ...?
Indpendants Rglages of EQ per channel and the rverbe and 2 Master.
A loop series, the other In parallel, Y has everything you need!


- Is the configuration simple?
On the amp, do not worry, it's Marshall, therefore, could not be more simple.
The rear face is so clear, so no worries.
Only problem, the footswitch is certainly great, but it looks like a complicated settle ... I'm afraid ...
- Gets it easy to sound good?
Just by putting the equalization afternoon with a bit of reverb, the sound is!
The clean is really beautiful! Rverbe and fulfills its job, but must be dosed carefully because it lasts and is quick to make his draft. Nevertheless, I like.
- Is the manual is clear and sufficient? ...?
The manual, I usually do not use it for a Marshall, but saw the footswitch, I'll have to look myself ... but after reading First, it s not me air very clear ...
But am I the apprcier for a manual ?? No!
I put 9 because they could do can be easier ...


- Is it your style of music?
As usual, Marshall will please fans of all styles of rock!
This time they also pushed the cap off overdrive channel because red is really red ... !!
it is even too much ... we approach the gain US I do not like. that's why I only use 3 clear channel / crunch and the first 2 Overdrive channels (green and orange)

- With what (s) guitar (s) / low (s) or effect (s) do you play?
For now, I have tried with my PRS 513 and my Strato Custom Shop that want to better ?? it sounds item! it is very clear.
I tried quickly with Ibanez chorus loop, it is superb ...

- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?
The clean is really superb with a top rverbe.
The orange and red channels are inspirs of Superlead JTM45 and JCM 800 ... so hard to say qua! everything is in the right hand. To you to grate.
After the green channel Overdrive is the equivalent of the Clean red (what is wanted elsewhere).
But my prfr is the Orange Overdrive channel! Typically hard rock 80s.
You want his Guns N 'Roses, it was here that happens!

- What are you sonorits prfrez, you dtestez?
In my case, it was all good !!
Only the red overdrive which I will not use. but ... others will like ...
In any case, it is a very versatile amp and sounds of rare precision at Marshall


- How long have you use it?
I reu trouble yesterday. I pass though the top and after twelve o'clock the evening. This allowed me to post this first review.

- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
I love everything !! it is Bonus !! I was not expecting ... and my faith, not so heavy that it was ... in fact everything a cheese, but given the golgoths I had before, I saw, and my back told me thank you.
Only problem is the footswitch that makes me a bit scared ... I hopes to I'm going to do, because I have not yet understood ...

- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
I hsitais with Bogner Alchemist, I actually had for a month. Well, I do not regret at all to have changed ... it is more versatile and here we have 2 REAL loop effects! ;dropoff Window - P

- How do you report qualitprix?
Very good, all-tube 50 watts I bought 1150 euros is impeccable, nothing wrong ...

- With the exprience, you do again this choice ...?
I will tell you later because one day it's much too early, but a priori, I finally found the one I was looking for ... small, powerful, beautiful, versatile, and quality of sounds and of materials is waiting for you ... it's a Marshall !!

KirKill's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" uh no ..."

Marshall JVM215C
Amps made in UK
5 lamps: 5xECC83 preamp and power 2xEL34
HP Celestion G12b
2 channels with volume control, gain, bass, middle, treble x2, reverb x2, x2 master, presence and resonance are common,
Each channel has 3 modes controllable foot
2 effects loops with a parrallel or series swich and dry for Loop 1
1 jack
input and midi output, XLR




I do not use the clean, I have a fender 65 for that ... I talked mostly about Crunch that is on the same channel as the Clean on paper reads Plexi/JTM45 ... well I don ' 've never had these amps against me by I've used so there I still find that the grain is flat and very rough not enough air is not all vintage, so already the first lie of Marshall, I would not go that some boutique style pedal Plexi Drive sounds better but it is still limited, the weak point is the HP is changing emergency
After the drive channel on the paper reads JCM800 good then I will not dwell but this is absolutely not the sound of the JCM800 to urgently review the SL5 is 100 times better on the drive channel there is a bouillabaisse unnamed grain with a very modern it sounds more JCM900 see 2000, so there second lie Marshall noted that the drive channel 215 is made in the drive channel 2 of the 410c (with more mid boost for lead) and not channel 1 drive is it more in the spirit JCM


I wanted a kind versatile Marshall amp, with transportable configuration possibilities ... who had a modded 410c 410c I prefer my regret is that against most impressive with 4 channels and HP 2, the 215c was supposed to be the miniature model except that crude foundry amp fails after these promises with amendments why not I have not yet done so, it fills me still a little further back the dosh ... we arrive at the rate of 410C the first change is the HP which is the Achilles heel after the lamps are again ... can also modded the drive channel it approaches the JCM but there must be know a little electronics ...
Overall I do not recommend this amp too which on paper looks great Plexi / JTM and JCM as the 410c could do a little, as the 215c is not

mikaka75's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" After a few mods, great amp"

Marshall JVM215C
Well, everything has been said below, no need to add more.


Very easy to use.

The manual is clear and well explains the position lamps preamp.

Easily a good sound is obtained. The equa not super accurate either: it is not the mesa.

Personally, I like to limit the amount of channels and compensate with the master. Including the OD channel, it limits the gain a little pig that this amp sends too quickly and allows the guitarist to better qualify their hit / attack.


So me it suits me perfectly. I play quite a lot actually (jazz, funk, metal) but my specialization remains the big rock.
My guitar = an EC 22 of 94 PRS.
However, some mods are required:

1) Change (at least) the V1, V2 and V5 preamp. Ideally change "all" lamps.
I do not know where Marshall went for their lamps but it is the cat.

2) In V2 (or V1), I put a 5751.
PS: I think the 12AY7 really remove too much gain when put in V1 and make the amp too dry.

3) Change the HP damn! The G12B-150 they have is a fucking crap. It sounds like this draft is not permitted, especially when we send the saturated fat.
on the other hand, in Jazz he is doing pretty good surprisingly enough.

For my part, I put a Celestion Creamback 75 (G12H75), which can collect 75 watts so it does.
I think it goes particularly well with this amp.
- It is clear, which makes it very effective for solii.
- Pretty sharp not screaming for a penny.
- Good record of mediums (handy for a marshall which is shielded)
- Good bass without that resonate too dark result (unlike its little brother the G12H30).
- A good compromise between vintage and modern, although in jazz, he does not do too much.

I had the choice between that and a V30. But the V30 in a 1x12 missing low ... not my delirium.
on the other hand, if I take a cab pti 2 * 12 Moreover, it is very likely that I foute one.
The V30 is fine to "amp" but not to "combo": D

To return to the amp itself, its 6 channels really offer a lot of possibilities.
It is a box to do everything but with the Marshall sound.

Of course there are better amp level.

For example, the distortion of a good JCM 800 is better (provided they burst the eardrums). However, versatility level, the JCM800 is very far behind, not to mention his ridiculous clean.

Ditto for the plexi.

His black cab this point is really missing low, but it is the common lot of combos.
At home we do not care but as a group, must be prepared to invest in a 2 * 12 more. As a head, anything :)
Black Point # 2 = reverb is worse than average ....

Finally, I could compare it with the Fender Supersonic (another amp that I like).
In all honesty, I find the best JVM. It responds better to the intensity of the attack pick and more. After I like grain Marshall. Those who prefer the Fender sound will probably tell you otherwise ;)


Strong point of this amp: used in small / medium volume, as opposed to 99% of Marshall amps.
The master is very convenient but could be designed to render a bit more progressive (like the gain knob on the OD channel).

I bought this amp for secondhand 750E. The seller had taken very carefully, thank you to him.
At this price, this is the deal of the century!

After mods, it suits me very well. I've owned / tried a few amp but I found my foot not shoe
I do not think config change for several years.
