    Huh! That's interesting. My MM-04 is not noisy and works as I want it to. The two copies of the JE-1000/MM-04 I bought off of Ebay both have an issue of "bleed through" when the pot is fully down, but no noticeable noise(other than what is expected when you crank the gain, however I have all mine set very low on the gain/boost pot).
    I'm wondering if both of my clones have wrong values on the potentiometer, but I haven't opened and compared to the MM-04 yet. From the schematic I gleaned that it's supposed to be a 50k ohm pot, so we'll see. Might be an other issue too of course.

    I used to own a Standard Series SV, until I traded it for the M-II I've had since 2009. Then a lot later I got curious, and I bought a white Alexi-200 a few years back. They have potential for sure. I like bolt-ons and satin finished natural necks, so it was ideal for me. But the floyd and the pickup would have had to get swapped out. I would have gotten a schaller or FR 1000 series and the EMG Alx for it, and it would have been solid. I prefer the extra thin U of my M-II to the regular thin U.

    I found the source of my frustrations! It's the big-ass toroidal transformer in my rocktron velocity that makes ginormous magnetic field. If I just turn 45-90 degrees on my stool i get flawless performance :)

    Not mine - but wish it was. Someone locally just put up a JVM410H with a 1960 4x12 cab for just 1075 €. I think this is a very good price, and just wanted to let you know.

    Do you absolutely love it? Is it the best thing ever?
    I'd like one, but I'd have to save up or sell good stuff to get one. I'd also need a loadbox or attenuator, as I would probably mostly use it at home.

    I think theres something up with Marshall.
    They leaked the teaser for the reissue of the Bluesbreaker. And then Thomann.de had listings for the Shredmaster, Drivemaster and Guv'nor reissues.
    Now Thomann have nothing Marshall left except some b-stock items and speaker cabs.
    I speculate they might have sold off their stock, so that they can stock whatever new stuff is coming.
    2022 is Marshalls 60th anniversary, so I bet my old hat we're going to see new stuff from them this year. It's been 16 years since they released the JVM as their flagship amp, which makes it their longest running amp.
    Now is the time gobble one up.

    if only RR480 would make a new batch of the JE-1K clone, it is absolutely great.
    I wish I had bought 2 back in the day. I would still buy 2 if he did a new batch :rofl:.

    I do not own any great rack or stack gear but even with POD Farm and the UX2 I get the Hatebreeder sound due to that JE1K ^^

    Can't hold it in anymore! I've sold off my rack stuff and i am picking up a JVM410H sometime this week :)
    The price is by far the biggest reason this is doable. It's 600€/500£/650$!
    The rack was cool, but it was just so much stuff, and too complicated for my tastes.

    Can we talk JVM410H settings?
    Alexi seems to have used several through the years.

    Any one play with them, or you find your own?

    Nothing wrong with plugins or modelling, it's just about getting a workable sound any way how. Yeah, if he could pop back up right around now, that'd be great. I'd buy one or two in a heartbeat. Read good stuff about them back in the day. Did they also not clone GP-1000s?

    This is from the premierguitar.com rig rundown.
    I got presence at 5 and resonance at 2, so I got them mixed up earlier. Screenshot_20220320-125713_YouTube.jpg

    Bass is 8, mid is 7, and treble is 6,5 and the presence is down to 3.
    This is from the auctioned off main-amp. Markings are the same for the backup-head.
    Have anyone tried them?
    Maybe they don't even sound good until you put an audix i-5 and D-4 on a 1960BV, who knows?

    Oh well.. here is a picture of the JVM410H
    That I got. 20220323_082028.jpg

    I'm really excited about it. It totally does the Bodom sounds.
    @Fastbodom kind of made me do it. His testimony was the last nail in the coffin. Now of course I need to upgrade my cabinet and rebuy 2-3 pedals, but it's no problem really.

    I stumbled across this video from Audix microphones which goes in depth with the microphones CoB used for live stuff.
    I always wondered what specific mics were used for guitar cabs, and it turns out they were two different ones.
    The Audix i5 is a SM57 alike, and the D4 is somewhat akin to a Sennheiser E906/609 or a MD421. It's supposed to be a tom mic, but it turns out it's really great on guitars.
    Live sound is a mix of those two mics set differently on two separate speakers.
    Also.. in the clip, which is from ~2012 Alexi appears to be using a Marshall 1960BX cab, which typically has Celestion G12M-25 Greenback speakers. We can't know for sure though.
    Antti Härmä and later sources from 2013 and onwards report of 1960BV cabs with Celestion/Marshall branded V30s.


    I have a long therm goal of trying to achieve a live/album tone of the last three albums/tours. Wish me luck!

    Out of curiosity, why have you removed the neck pickup from the guitar on the right? :D There's already a hole for it so I don't see a point in removing it.
