plop,

I'm searching for a new amp and as I'm waiting for a long time I'm searching for a big hot one.
For now, I'm looking at the Marshall JVM410. Do you guys have any opinion on it ?
Combo ? Head ? another amp ?

Anyway, I'm looking for something versatile from clean to insane. The perfect amp you said ? yeah, maybe I'm looking fot it smile.gif

what do you think about it ?

thx

Its an amazing amp, but very powerful too so you will need to crank it up good to get that powerful tube tone...Consider where are you going to play it because of that..Regarding head , combo dilema...If you are really for a versatile amp then go for the head + cab option...Its really versatile because you can choose different cabs and everything to suit your needs..But combo option is easier to carry around I guess..See how are you going to transport it to gigs and then choose...I would go for head+cab option in relation to combo any day smile.gif

I agree with Bogdan regarding versatility.

Can you give us a bit more info though - style of music and budget would be helpful. Regardless, I'm inclined to point you at Engl amps, maybe a Powerball, or perhaps a Framus Dragon or Cobra - they will go clean to insane.

Cheers,
Tony

I don't like Marshall combos - they lack low end, the stacks however are great, i might buy a JVM410h tomorrow!!!!!

I'm in the same dilemma I want a great rock tone, an oldschool metal tone and a brutal high gain metal tone...

Choices are Marshall JVM410h(not brutal enough), peavey 6505 (not very versatile), Engl Powerball(very modern sounding), Mesa Boogie Rectifier (great but expensive), Hughes & Kettner Switchblade (versatile but cold sounding)

If you need insane distortion it may be a good idea to check out other amps in the price range, like ENGLs. Head+cab seems like a good option as well, depending what are your needs. Sometimes it is good to carry only a head if you have a cab on the spot, and sometimes it is good to have all in one solution for easy carrying. Usually the tube head weights as much as a 112 combo.

The Framus Ruby Riot I (Not the Ruby Riot II) will also go from clean to pretty insane smile.gif

Not to forget, what is it going to be used for, arena playing, pub gigs or bedroom? I'd not suggest a 100W head for your bedroom. I could however suggest a 5w amp for arena playing, if you mike it wink.gif And tops 50w for the pub.
