Marshall JVM205C 50W 2x12 Valve Combo
The Marshall JVM205C is a 2-Channel 50 Watt combo that's been hailed as a breakthrough in amplification by the world's guitar press, the JVM Series offers a power-amp built on the peerless EL34 designs responsible for the legendary Marshall roar. The 4 x ECC83 pre-amp stage valves generate a vast palette of overdrives that range from sophisticated and subtle to explosive and extreme...
The Marshall JVM205's layout is simple with dedicated Gain, 3-band EQ, Volume and Reverb for each channel. The Master section, featuring Dual Master Volumes, Resonance and Presence, finishes the concise layout. Even with its programmability, multiple channels and modes plus switchable Reverb, FX Loop and Master Volume, the Marshall JVM205 Combo is easy to navigate and understand.
The JVM205C's onboard logic ensures silent-switching and remembers the position of each front panel switch in every mode: Reverb (on/off), FX Loop (on/off) and Master Volume (1 or 2). When re-returning to any of the mode settings, switch settings will be exactly as you left them, even after you've switched off the Marshall JVM205C Combo ...
Every Marshall JVM model is supplied with a fully programmable footswitch. This patent-pending technology allows single front panel switching (SWITCH STORE) or entire set-ups (PRESET STORE - Channel/Mode, Reverb, FX Loop, Master Volume) to be simply assigned to any footswitch . . The MIDI In and Thru connection means it can easily be integrated in a MIDI switching set-up, allowing you to store and recall 128 amplifier set-ups and enabling your MIDI effects board to easily control the Marshall JVM205 ...
The onboard, studio quality Digital Reverb is routed in parallel (ensuring no digital degradation of the direct signal) and mixed with the direct signal by means of a valve, the Reverb retains signal clarity in its tail and low noise, analogue switching allows it to decay naturally when switching the effect off or changing channels. In addition, when the Reverb is switched off, it is totally removed from the circuit.
The Marshall JVM205 Combo amp boasts two FX Loops that live on its rear panel, a footswitchable Parallel/Series Loop with Level and Mix controls plus a Series Loop with a Bypass switch. While as far as the choice of speakers goes - after exhaustive testing of every speaker available, all agreed that the pairing of a Marshall/Celestion 'Heritage' with a Marshall/Celestion 'Vintage' was the only way to go as the combination produces a fantastic depth and breadth of sound while maintaining a tight, musical response and a solid low-end thump.

Great Amp, has that biting Marshall tone from those singing EL34 power valves. Great gigging volumes and with a Les Paul, well just WOW! Also, by registering it with Marshall I got a 3 year parts and labour warranty. What's not to like
Fantastic. Not as organic sound as the DSL range, but better sound in general and great feel for the player. Very versatile. Unbeatable quality price ratio.
Beautiful sound! Easy to set up and very intuitive.
