    Just placed a Studio Vintage Head in "My Cart" on Sweetwater.com, Then started working on the listing to sell my JVM410HJS. Should I do it?

    Would love to help but never tried a Studio Vintage , all I can say is that my friend had
    a JVM410HJS once and said that it was one of the best sound he ever had and regret selling it since.

    Do it. I sold my JVM 410h a few years ago for 1980 JMP MKII 2204 and have never looked back!

    No.

    Again, personal taste, playing style, preferred tones, versatility, size.... so many personal factors. Totally up to you we can't tell ypu that.

    To me, that seems like the kind of amp that one might regret selling.

    I love Plexi and I wouldn't. Not a 20 watt Plexi and yes it really does matter.

    If you were talking 50/100 watter? Hell yes. Big iron sounds and feels proper.

    Mostly if you're playing out and going through the house system? Live? Won't matter.

    @jleftyy I wouldn't sell the JVM410HJS, I don't have one but if I did, I wouldn't sell it!

    Can you keep it and still get the SV? Two nice Marshalls are better than one. :D

    Yes but a 1980 2204 is arguably a step up from a Studio Vintage.

    I don't have either amp, but if I was offered a choice between the two, I'd take the HJS over the SV.
    Unless you're trying to downsize, and limit your versatility to just using pedals to get some different tones.
    You never mentioned a reason why you want the SV and not the HJS.

    I probably won't sell the JVM. Just telling my wife I'll list it so I can buy the SV.

    When i bought the JVM I hemmed and hawed for a month over that and a 1959HW. I love the JVM but you always covet what you don't have. Never played through a Plexi style amp.

    Ok, now you're making sense.

    I have both amps and there is no way I'd let go of the HJS. I guess it depends on what style of music you play, I'm a gigging muso and I need the versatility of the JVM.

    Keep both is the correct answer.

    Exactly, someone is a bit dazed and confused based on that statement!
