Question about Audio Players & Recorders

1 Answer

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 more the distortion. Any help in resolving this will be gratefully received. Thanks.

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:

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!

How do you connect a peavey 6505+ amp to a marshall 1960a cabinet?


On the back of your 6505 there are two jacks that are labeled speaker outputs. For mono function, use either one of those outputs and run a SPEAKER cable from your amp to one of the input jacks of your 1960a cabinet. I assume it is a 4X12 cabinet. Either input will work. Make sure you match the ohm selector on your 6505 (right next to the output jack, 4/8/or 16 ohms) to the ohm rating on your 1960 cabinet. It is likely labeled on the plate that houses the input jacks. You should be good to go. NOTE: Never turn your amp on unless it is hooked up to a speaker cabinet and never use instrument cable to hook your amp to your speaker cabinet. Bad for a nice tube amp like yours.
Rock on and hope it helps.

Can some one tell me how to hook up my half stack.


Using a speaker cable, plug head 16 ohm output to cab 16 ohm input, making sure the cab switch is set to mono if it's a stereo cab (1960)

Low volume on my marshall


I am very new here and don't know how to answer a question to a specific problem so I will write about the most common problems that I have had over the decades doing guitar amp repairs. If you find that your amp is extremely low in volume and then suddenly comes back to normal- check out the effects return [or power amp in] jack. Especially in Marshall amps-these corrode and your signal dies. If there is loud noise such as hissing and crackling with no guitar patch cord in the input jack- the input jack is likely at fault. They normally have switching contacts that ground part of the input circuit when the 1/4 inch male plug is disconnected. When this in is corroded or too weak to make normal contact, you can get these symptoms. If your amp is a solid state Marshall or Fender and there is a random buzzing sound with no guitar signal connected- hit the side of the amp and listen for the buzz to go away or become louder-if it does, this usually means that the connections are loose at the two large filter capacitors. In one or more Marshall amps, they use a filter circuit in the low voltage power supple for the preamp tubes. If you encounter a dead Marshall[the model escapes me now] remove the circuit board and resolder the four connections at the bottom of the bridge rectifier. If you have any other amplifier repair questions you can email me direct at computerlen@hotmail.com.

Well without testing a bunch of parts. I would say some component in the clean preamp has changed. It may have happened over time and now you are noticeing it. without checking all the parts it would be hard to tell. Get it to a service center. Or you may send it in to Pro Line Music

Every time i turn on their is a loud high pitch squeel that occurs on my Marshall VS232 amp. My volume is all the way down, and the gain channel isnt on either. What is the problem?


If this happens when guitar cable is disconnected, take unit in for repair. This should be easy to troubleshoot. Hint: demonstrate the problem in the shop. Things have a way of fixing themselves and then lots of time is wasted trying to recreate the problem.

Jvm 410h squeals with feedback in most distorted modes at about half volume even when guitar volume is off


Test if it does it with the guitar cable unplugged from the amp. If it does, then it is time for servicing... If not, then you have a system grounding problem and the guitar cable is "leaking" signal into the amp. This can happen even if guitar is NOT connected.

I run a pod HD 500 into the amp and It breaks up, like there is a blown speaker sometimes.


The Marshall is a super clean acoustic amp.

The POD is overloading the amp.

Try the electric guitar input and keep the gain on the amp down, keep the EQ level and use the POD and the end volume to adjust the final volume.

The normal inputs is for a low output acoustic pickup - the POD is a high output electronic source.

Start with the Marshall gains low and get the clean sound good, then work on the gritty sound.

The amp is voiced for a sweet clean sound - if you want grit'n'ball change to a 50w Marshall valve head and a 4 X 12 cabinet.

here's a link to the manual. to be sure.

if it has effects on it, you may require two cabinets for the stereo effects. in the truest sense of stereo is what i mean.
