The Marshall JVM410H Joe Satriani Edition head is an addition to the Marshall Signature Series. Marshall’s R&D engineers worked vefry closely with Satriani to craft the JVM410HJS. After much experimentation and an assortment of trials that involved Satriani using prototypes during recording and touring, they signed off on the final version and the JVM410HJS went into production.
The most notable difference from the original JVM410 is that the reverb pots have been replaced with four nose gates, one for each channel, and each with their own threshold. A Mid Shift button has been added and can be used with both the OD1 and OD2 channels.
The Clean channel is based on the 6100 when on the green mode, with the orange and red modes being hotter variations. The Crunch channel takes the original JVM410 crunch and adds some of the popular Marshall “AFD” circuit to it. The OD channels are voiced identically, based on the JVM410 OD1 but with the gain scaled back slightly and a smoother transition between modes. The Mid Shift button determines the difference in mid character between the original JVM410 OD1 and OD2 tone, moving the mids from around 650khz (Mid Shift off) to around 500khz (Mid Shift on).
The JVM410HJS is powered by EL34 tubes and has two Master volumes, the supplied footswitch allows you to switch between Channels, Modes, Master Volumes, FX loop and now the Noise Gates and Mid Shift as well. There is also a full MIDI implementation.

Starting with the Ultimate Speaker Demo, an ever-increasing number of the GearTunes audio clips are being tracked using the Radial JCR Reamp. The Reamp was invented by my good friend and colleague John Cuniberti who engineered/co-produced many of Joe Satriani's most infamous recordings.
For GearTunes, reamping allows me to record a track where the guitar "hears" the amp in the room, but initially only the guitar or guitar and effects signal is recorded. This allows me to spend additional time perfecting amp tones and mic placement once I have the performance I'm looking for. One of the byproducts of this process is the creation of GearTunes DI Clips which enable you to play select guitars and effects through your amp by using your mobile device or computer as a reamp device.
For GearTunes DI Clips - and Gear Tune DI Clips ONLY (always found under the DI clips tab for gear that has one), you can play our guitar and effects through your amp. Simply use an unbalanced cable that terminates with an 1/8th inch jack on one end and a 1/4 inch jack on the other. Connect the 1/8th jack to the output of your mobile device or computer and the 1/4 inch jack into the front of your amp. Start off with your amp volume at zero and your mobile device (or computer) volume all the way up to ensure you hit the front end of the amp with enough signal, and then gradually increase the volume of the clean channel on your amp until you reach a level that is not capable of causing damage to your ears or equipment. GearTunes accepts no liability for the use, abuse or misuse of these clips, and playing them into your amp is done exclusively at your own risk.
I am tremendously excited about being able to share GearTunes DI Clips with you as you journey on your quest to find right gear for the music you play! Cheers ~ Doug:)
