In a nutshell, the Marshall all-valve, 2-channel JVM205C 50-Watt tube combo amp is a 2-channel version of the most versatile Marshall amplifier ever made. Each of this combo amp's 2 channels are completely independent of each other, and they boast 3 Modes, all 6 of which are footswitchable and feature their own unique gain structure. It makes the JVM 2-channel effectively 6 Marshalls in one!
The JVM205C has studio-quality digital reverb with a level control for each channel. This is also footswitchable, as are the amp's two Master Volume controls and the Series/Parallel effects loop. Resonance and Presence are equipped with master controls.
An 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 and 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 JVM205C all-valve combo amp will give you whatever tone you need right when you need it.

Ok...Bought this amp early in year 09 from guitar center. Sounded great at first, but now the o.d channel doesn't work. Called guitar center, they gave me a phone number for Marshall...they don't respond by phone or e-mail....anyway it was a great sounding amp,and still is on the clean channel, but if you want crunching gain...its a paperweight.....
I bought this amp a few days ago after years of being a loyal Mesa Boogie fan... Recently I have been looking for a different sound, I am fond of the boogie sound but need something different, and more portable as I have been using a rack system for years... This amp was definitely a very good addition to my current setup and may possibly be using this alot for a while... My only complaint was the stock Marshall tubes kinda sounded blahh to me, i had a high gain set of JJ'S laying around and installed them and it breathed new life into this amp, I almost returned it until I installed the new tubes. Definitely consider this upgrade if you purchase this amp... The tubes are the only reason for the 4/5 star rating, now it gets a very deserved 5/5..
