They did make a 1 watt JVM so a 20 watt isnt entirely out of the question.
Douglass Adams would be proud !!
I’ll tip a Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster to that !!!
Frankly I am stunned they have not. I even tinkered with a code 10 trying to see if I could figure out how to remove the poweramp section. then put the remaining guts in a small box. I used both real amps and modelers when appropriate for the gig, and have owned all the big modelers. I think the "code" stands up to them just fine (maybe not as good, but not a big difference and I don't think they have really thrown a ton of R&D at it). Currently I use an atomic amps AA3 for my modeling needs, but would jump to marshall in a second if they made one. Hell, they should just buy out atomic amps and rebrand it.
For me, I would like to see a hand wired JVM. IMHO, my JVM410H stands Proudly next to my Freidman BE100. I think I even prefer the JVMs tone. But god damn that wiring on the BE100 is a work of art. The JVM is clearly a rack of circuit boards that I get more nervous about as it ages, how will I get my glorius JVM tone once they stop making the parts (and with the circuit board, component replacment would be difficult if not impossible in many cases).
Agreed. I had a Code25 and found It was fantastic direct to DAW. Would like to see that Marshall tech in a pedal like a VOX Stomplab.
A 20W Bluesbreaker head. With tube tremolo and no ICs.
I don't think an amp sim device would be a smart move for Marshall, as it would cannibalize their own product in the home hobbyist segment. Besides, Marshall is just not very good at this digital stuff. Everything they have tried so far has failed. And, how many of us on here really crave digital Marshall products that will be obsolete in a few years? There are many smaller Marshall amps, such as the DSL5C, on the market that offer a decent product with a small price tag.
A JMP-1 preamp reissue would be a cool idea. That preamp is still being used, but with gear that's 20 years old, reliability is an issue, and it would be nice to have the option of purchasing a brand new, maybe slightly updated unit.
Other than that, the DSL line could use an update at some point. It'd be nice to have the Clean/Crunch and OD1/OD2 option on the Ultra Gain Channel of the DSL20CR.
The Studio line could be improved by putting a 12" speaker in the SC20, for example.
Additionally, I think Marshall should put a TS-9-variant into every Marshall, á la Beast mode on the SL-X. That should be a standard feature on every Marshall. As should be a low-volume compensation switch, offered on the 6100LM, which tames fizz at low volumes.
And finally, Marshall needs to put a line of text in every user manual stating that "tube amps sound unnatural and fizzy at low volumes," like they did in the manual for the 6100LM. That would drastically reduce complaints and threads about fizz on tube amps. It would also help if user manuals mentioned what volume range is optimal for an amp to be operating in for best tone.
Confuse the living shit out of people and call it the JTM 800.
Yes the 'JTM800 model 2017' would do nicely.
Some have peculiar ideas of what is and should be "authentic" with amplifiers.
Hey! Don't use my name in vain! It's "José" with an accent! Gracias!
Hey I know some Jose that don't use accent on his name.
ch2 could easily have A/B/C modes, it's the 3rd channel that would have to go in a small form factor.
when you look at the combo version, it's easy to think that with surface mount components, the removal of the midi capabilities, two less power tubes, two less preamp tubes, you could fit it in the studio size cab...
As someone that has used all the big modelers, I have to disagree. The code series is a VERY good modeler, they just screwed up the form factor. Giving that the modeling sector is already eating at their market share, AND a significant portion of any modeler is dedicated to marshall amp tones, I would be first in line if marshall made one. As I noted earlier, they are big enough to buy out one of the smaller ones and rebrand it, or make a "Code" pedal form factor and give it a little more R&D and they are foot to foot with Fractal, Kemper, and Line6 on the modeling front (at least as far as Marshall tones go).
Welcome to the forum Jos’e
OK. Going out on a limb here, but Orange seem to have re-embraced the Valvestate concept with the 20W Micro Terror head and are making a success of it.
Even Johan Segeborn uses them in his vids! (see below)
So bring back Valvestates, with the hindsight of how the AVTs (Mk III) were received.
Keep it simple and better than the MG series.
I wish this had a Marshall logo on the front:
The price is great, would be fun to test it
