hey guys, ive recently been looking up some heads i can use for metal, and since i have a £1400 budget for both a head and a cab, ive been looking at a marshall jvm410h and a jvm205h. Has anyone had any experience with these amps and do they work well for metal ? Also if anyone has any other suggestions that would be awesome thanks

Lets apply some common sense to try to help you out here:

1. What kind of metal do you play?

2. Do you also jam with friends or plan to gig some day?

3. Are you willing to go used?

4. What gear do you have now?

I've played a JVM410h before and I was very disappointed with it.
Another unoriginal prog head.

i say a used dual rec.

or to be in the GG&A style: a peavey 6505

but a dual rec + booster is better for modern metal ( CoB ) IMO

Cob use 6505s.....


Tbh if Ts is smart he could easily get a 2nd hand 6505/fireball/single rec and a nice cab for £1k.

Far better than a jvm and more affordable than a 2 channel dual rec in the UK.

i just need something that can still retain that kinda gain and clarity and lower volumes too, since half the time ill be using it at home, thats why i thought about the jvms since they seem to work well at low volumes

Engl all the way, they are high gain monsters that work well at (relatively) low volumes.

ah dude im seeing cob this saturday, tbh another thing that attracted me to the jvms is that gates uses them in avenged sevenfolds album nightmare, and i thought the tone in that album was pretttttttty sick. I know that it wont be a true tone representation but still

could you really find a used dual rec tho for £1000 :/


i did about 3 weeks ago, and it was a 2 channel which is the best version

although saying that you could easily get an ENGL Fireball or a used Powerball for the same kind of money which would be maybe a bit better for your style and tonality. COB used to use a Jackson Lee Pre amp through some poweramp, but recently i thought Alexi had been using the ENGL SE so an ENGL would be sweet for you

can i ask though, why do people not seem to like the marshalls?

over-priced for their lack of quality. you're basically paying the extra money just to have Marshall on it. There's much better quality products out there for the same price.


Megadeth used JVM's on their last album, im not sure if it was a 410 though. but they can at least cover thrash metal
