    Je-sus! That demo just made my mind up on the JMP vs JCM debate in my head. The big question now is, SC20H or Friedman PT20 :dude:

    For those that own these already, are the knobs rubber covered or plastic?

    Yeah it's pretty good but pales in comparison to the Marshalls. I was only considering it because of the price and size but maybe I'll look at a DSL instead.

    I was considering the DSL 20HR, I have a DSL 100 watt head I’ve been using for gigs, it’s been my number 1 amp since 2000. I thought it would be cool to have 20 watt version for at home practice, but these Studio’s, especially the JCM 800 has me intrigued.

    Are the SV20 and SC20 models cathode biased like the 2525 Mini Jubilee? I'm guessing so, but was wondering if anyone knew for sure?

    Wether 3dB sound like double the volume or not depends on many factors, and also where abouts that 3dB is... 107dB(about the level my 2 watt tweed deluxe sits, useable in a quiet band practice, not quite enough for mine though) jumping to 110dB doesn't sound like a right lot...


    but I used my Origin 20 head at practice on Sunday and it was plenty in the setting, about 5 watts...


    I will measure next time, but if we're thinking double the power is 3dB increase, that'd be roughly 110dB. Then the high setting of 20 watts blew our heads off in the practice room... so let's that's double to 10, then double again to 20, an increase of 6dB, right? 116dB were at now... which I think is more than enough for most pubs, and venues tend to mic up the amps, might struggle outdoors.... but between 110dB and 116dB that sounds to me a noticeable difference. It's not quite double but a nice enough jump...


    Now you bump up to 50 watts, you've got 119dB/120dB? Well the difference between those 2, 116dB and 119dB, is eeally noticeable, its a big difference right? There 3 dB makes a ton of difference! Double the perceivable volume output even.... right?

    So they release a small 20 watt 2203 and a 1959? That sounds an awful lot like what people have been asking for. I think these look. The classic has a master volume so it seems the best match for my needs but running the vintage balls out would be a lot of fun just like a 1959 but without the crater the 100watter would create at those volumes.

    what I find w/ Blackstar, is that they sound pretty decent on their own, but they get lost in a mix easily. I know a guy, who used JMP45 amp's for decades & always cut through. He got an endorsement through Blackstar & after a couple gigs, he had to go w/ 2 full stacks w/ 200 watt heads. He still had trouble cutting & getting a good tone...

    Just got mine today. Been playing it since noon. This thing roars. I still have to run it through every cab configuration I own. Spent the last two hours running it throuh a stock Orange PPC212 and a Greenback loaded Carvin 212E. Sweet, sweet tones. I have to run it through my 1960TV and Peavey JSX 412's and all my 1x12s. So far this is gonna replace my current gigging amp.

    Any idea if it’s cathode biased for when the power tubes need to be changed?

    I think it's been answered already : yes cathode bias
