Marshall jvm 410h or Marshall 6100?

Recommended Posts

i am extremely interested in these two amps. the Marshall 6100 30th anniversary and the Marshall JVM 410h. I want a Iron Maiden, Megadeth type sound. I play hard rock/metal/heavy metal. I want versatility and a great sounding amp that would benefit me the most for the particular sound i want. I love the Marshall sound, I have played the JVM 410h, and i LOVED it, and i have not played the 6100 30th anniversary head. I have also heard amazing things about the 6100, and mixed things about the JVM. Adrian smith of iron maiden uses the 6100, he is one of my favorite players, and now Dave Mustaine uses the JVM, also one of my favorite players. Pleas help me decide on the amp. Also i would get the JVM BRAND NEW, which is what i like, but the 6100 used, which is not bad, but i prefer brand new.

 

help me on which amp sound best to your ears!

You look like a 12 year old boy with Down's.

 

Also, it doesn't matter which sounds best to OUR ears, it matters what sounds best to YOURS. Go find a 6100 to try. Then make a decision.

ya im paying full up cash, so its going to be one or the other. Im leaning towards the JVM just because it seems more of a metal amp.

I know you prefer buying brand new, but the savings are fairly large buying second hand. I'm sure you could find a near perfect JVM410 second hand anyway. good luck

dude calm down, if you cant take a little shot every once in a while you have no place on the internet.

 

And really if you narrowed it down to only two amps, and you're just going for which sounds better, that is completely preference. Now we'd be able to give you advice if you were to talk about its application, be it bedroom playing, jamming with a drummer, or playing out, but if it's really down to just the sound, that's all up to you.

Anyway, the JVM410 is fast getting a reputation as one of the best amps Marshall have made in a long time. The 6100 is quite metal, but not as versatile as the JVM.

 

The JVM has some of the best Marshall cleans since the Jubilee, and it also does all the classic marshall sounds from early master-volume crunch through hot-rodded JCM800 and up to modern metal. It's not as dry sounding as some other amps, say ENGL, but if you want a Marshall sound that does modern metal I'd say it's a good choice.

The same thought crossed my mind as well Dewy.

:o

 

Kinda looks wheelchair bound as well, and now that I know that isn't the case, I feel no pity in saying he looks of the mongoloid persuasion.

the two bands you named, iron maiden and megadeth, both use JVM's.

one of the guys in iron maiden was using a jvm, cant remember which one though.

 

EDIT: it was dave murray using the JVM.

the 6100 is probably the most organic sounding Marshall multichannel amp but IMO the JVM has more usable gain. Plus if you have any problems with the JVM it's easier and cost less to have it repaired.

On the down side, it really needs to be cranked past at least 5 or 6 before it sounds decent. This 'sensible volume = crap tone' syndrome is the biggest downfall of modern Marshalls, so unless you're playing larger venues, it's best not to go down that route.

 

Maybe try a Laney VH100R, they're similar but sound a little better at bedroom volume. Though if you go used, you should have the cash to buy an an attenuator, which will bring down the volume to a more manageable level.

for a marshall, i think it sounds pretty good at low volumes.
