Marshall Amplification's JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition amplifier is not only the latest in their Signature Series Range, but also an addition to their award-winning flagship line, the JVM. This collaboration between Marshall and one of the world's most respected guitarists takes the well-known front panel features of the JVM410H and overhauls the tone to a completely new level.
A noteable feature is the fact that the four Reverb pots from the original JVM410 have now been replaced with Noise Gates; four Noise Gates no less, one for each channel and each with its own threshold. Another visible change to the front panel is the addition of a ‘Mid Shift’ button that can be used for both OD1 and OD2 channels, shifting the mid character of the sound to that of Joe's specification.
Tone-wise, the amplifier is very different; The Clean channel is based on the aforementioned 6100 when on the green mode, with the orange and red modes being hotter variations of that tone, also. The Crunch channel takes the original JVM410 crunch and adds some of the popular Marshall ‘AFD’ circuit to it, and the OD channels are now both voiced identically, based on the JVM410 OD1 but with the gain scaled back slightly and a smoother transition between modes. The mid shift button determines the difference in mid character between the original JVM410 OD1 and OD2 tone, moving the mids from around 650khz (Mid Shift off) to around 500khz (Mid Shift on).
