The Marshall all-valve 50 Watt JVM205C is the combo version of the 205H. It offers a more straightforward two-channel preamp, clean/crunch and overdrive, than the JVM410H’s four channels, for guitarists who prefer a more stripped-down, ‘fewer frills’ approach.
The two independent channels both have three modes. Each mode reconfigures the gain structure of each channel, making six modes in total, which take can you from Plexi/JTM45 cleans through JCM800 to modern high gain tones.
A 2-channel, 50W version of the JVM410H Head
In a nutshell, the Marshall all-valve, 2-channel Marshall JVM205C 50W tube head is a 2-channel, 50W version of the most versatile Marshall amplifier ever made, the JVM410H.
Both channels are completely independent of each other and they boast 3 Modes, all 6 of which are foot-switchable and feature their own unique gain structure. It effectively makes the JVM205C 6 Marshalls in one!
The Marshall JVM205C has studio-quality digital reverb with level control for each channel. This is also foot-switchable, as are the amp’s two Master Volume controls and the Series/Parallel effects loop. Resonance and Presence are also equipped with master controls.
With its ingenious footswitch (UK patent pending) and the fact all the amp’s switching (channel/modes, Reverb, Master Volume selection, FX loop) can be done via MIDI, you’re looking at an incredibly flexible amp! The 4-way footswitch boasts LEDs and memory, plus it connects to the amp via a regular guitar cable.
From the cleanest clean to the filthiest distortion ever found in a Marshall and all points in-between, the Marshall JVM205C all-valve amp head will give you whatever tone you need right when you need it.
