The Marshall JVM410HJS Joe Satriani Signature Tube Guitar Amplifier Head is an amplifier that perfectly represents the incredible versatility of the legend whose name it bears. Joe Satriani and Marshall's fruitful partnership has spanned several decades, and produced some truly remarkable results - the JVM410HJS being possibly, the greatest of them all.
Playing host to a range of features that are designed to help Satriani achieve his mind-boggling guitar playing feats with ease, the JVM410HJS is equipped with four channels that have switchable modes, footswitchable memory, switchable noise gates, built-in effects, and some remarkable tone-sculpting controls. Quite simply, if this amp can't do it, then you'll probably struggle to find one that can!
The JVM410HJS is packed with valves, with four ECC83 in the preamp, and a single ECC83 along with 4 EL34 valves in the power amp. This gives the amplifier more than enough power to comfortably create a powerful sonic assault, but also guarantees that cleans, and lower volume tones, sound out equally as deftly.
Channel switching and more
The Marshall JVM410HJS Joe Satriani Signature Tube Guitar Amplifier Head doesn't simply give you footswitchable channels. Each one is carefully designed and calibrated to meet the demanding standards of Satriani. The Clean channel offers a tone based on the 30th anniversary 6100 in green mode, with orange and red modes that raise the stakes with regard of creating warmer variations. The Crunch channel features proprietary AFD circuitry, whilst the Overdrive channels deliver tones close in character to the revered JCM800, with some modifications to make them pretty gnarly indeed. Each channel has been carefully tweaked to meet Satriani's specifications, following laborious testing in the studio and on the road.
Each channel is designed to respond well to external effects, so you can incorporate outboard set-ups with ease. The built-in FX loop allows you to choose where in the signal chain you place you effects, giving you total control over your tone. Thanks to the built-in noise gates, channel switching is faster and smoother than ever before, guaranteeing your lightning fast licks and riffs can soar freely.

Not only does this make changes rapid and seamless, but makes it much easier to control the amp.
