Hi .... hehehe ...probably more a Marshall man(its a tone thing)... but Fender still rocks, and I have fixed and modded heaps of them ;)
There are many different versions of the same designation valve about these days, some providing better gain than others. The suffix on the valve type designates the particular performance of the valve. BEWARE OF CHEAP CHINESE VALVES. They are mostly crap. Go for brands like Sovtek, Electro Harmonix, Svetlana for good quality valves at an affordable price.

What model Fender, and what valves have been fitted to it? Get back to me here and I will check to see they are up to it..

Hi guys have a demon upa f88 and have lost sound on one channel from the amp, have ruled out the wires by swapping these with the other side, does anyone have any info on these systems?


Stereo amps are in fact two mono amps put together. So you have a good side and a bad side, but they are the same. So just compare the channels. Voltages on the bad side should be the same as the good side. If you "buzz" test the two sides you will soon find out where the fault is.
A buzz test is where you touch parts with an insulated tool. The working amp will buzz. But don't short anything. And keep away from the power supply.

Hi, I've a Marshall JVM410H which is connected to a Marshall 1960B cabinet. The problem is I can't take the volume up very much because there is so much distortion - the more I turn the volume up, the...


Hi-
It sounds like you have the same rig I do. I bought the JVM410h immediately after it came out. I'm a professional gigging musician, and it had the versatility I needed.
One of the first things I noticed was it's high gain structure. On my JCM800, I could crank the gain to 10, and get a great, "classic Marshall" overdrive tone. The gain structure of the JVM is more sensitive. I find myself not needing the gain knob any higher than 10 o'clock, in the RED modes of the OD channels.
The manual is very informative, though somewhat complex. I recommend watching this tutorial on it:
http://www.marshallamps.com/product.asp?productCode=JVM410H#
Click on the "THEATRE" link on the right.
I love my amp, but it's been in the shop twice already. Marshall's are known for being unreliable, and this is amp is in no way an exception. Be gentle with it! It's moody.
Best of luck, and I hope this helps!

Marshall valvestate 40 guitar combo, clean channel works fine, dirty channel has no o/p have changed valve ecc83, channel indicator led comes on and valve lights up but still no o/p. Can you help...


Hi Andy

The problem you face is most probably the same that stops most all valve state amps from working. They suffer terribly from fry/cracked solder joints. You will have to remove the main circuit board from the chassis, and resolder any suspect joints you can see, particularly about the rear loop in out jacks, control pots on the front panel, and power supply. There is a large power resistor and zener diode that cause problems in this model from memory. The valve never fails in these amps. Due to the lower supply voltages they are run at, they are not under alot of pressure, and as such give good reliable service. Go over the amp for dry joints first, and see how you get on. I have repaired so many of these with that problem.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! If you have the room for them to run free and loud, keep the 901's in service. Get them a good amplifier because any multichannel receiver can't deal with their special EQ needs and still drive conventional speakers for the other channels properly.

The good news. I have a setup similar to what I think you're trying to do and it works great! Get a receiver that has has 5.1 analog Outputs so you could drive up to 6 external amplifiers if you want to (I drive 4). Then you can draw off the Front L&R to a separate amp for the 901's and the 'other' (lesser) speakers can live on the receiver's native amplifiers.

A separate multi-channel amp for the 901's was my solution. Because I can run each channel independently to an external amp, I run a Carver AV-406 (5-channel amp) for my 901's in Front, 2 Subwoofers (DBX DB-SW 15's) and the Rear Surround channel (Bose 301), with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Outputs and the 901's amp channels. My receiver controls everything and just drives the Center (Kenwood 777's) and Surround speakers (Bose 301's) from its own amps.

You could get by with just a stereo amp for the 901's. A Carver M-200 is a good efficient amplifier that would have you cooking just fine (2x100W). Run it with the Active EQ between the receiver Front L&R Pre-Outputs ** and the 901's amp channels.

** Multi-CH Receiver L&R Audio Out ***) >>> Bose EQ Amplifer IN, then
Bose EQ Amplier OUT >>> new amplifier IN.


Attach the 901's to the new amp, set its volume to Max and run through your receiver's speaker level setup.

Any modern AV Receiver with the pre-requisite analog outputs should work. Since you have to buy a power amp for your 901 front channels anyway the receiver need not be a powerhouse. Look for features and lots of connections for digital and analog devices. I lean toward coaxial digital connectors because A) they take standard >> and cheap << audio cables; and B) they can be shared with Y-connectors if you're careful to have only one digital device turned on at a time. Optical SP/DIF is an expensive farce to get into your wallet.

For DVD/Cable Box/Blu-Ray look for multiple HDMI or component connections. Again, length and cable cost made me look at the component connections vs HDMI and I was pleased that I can't see the difference even with HD programming from my cable box. It's all great.
