A 2-channel, 50W version of the JVM410C Combo
In a nutshell, the Marshall all-valve, 2-channel JVM215C is a 2-channel, 50W version of the most versatile Marshall amplifier ever made, the JVM410C. Each of its 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 JVM215C 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 JVM215C all-valve combo will give you whatever tone you need right when you need it.

Comments about Marshall JVM Series JVM215C 50W 1x12 Tube Combo Amp:
This is as advertised a very versatile amp. I haven't had it that long - after a year I will get back on and do another review. The 2 channells 4 modes is really having like having 4 presets. Easy to configure - the footswitch is cool - the cable is a mono guitar cable no 9 pin cable that has potential to get damaged. I have the 1st channel mode 1 set to clean - has a nice clean sound but not Fender clean it's a Marshall. 1st channel mode 2 I have set it to give me a little bite not real saturated. 2nd Channel 1st mode I have a real nice Marshall roar think Judas Priest, White Snake late 70's & 80's rock thing going. Even though this is overdriven there is still a lot of note in there and not just a square wave. Some amps and amps that do modeling when overdriven have lots compression and the distortions masks the chords and notes you play this Marshall and all Marshalls in general do not. 2nd Channel mode 4 is the one I scooped (removed a lot of mids) not reccomended I changed this immediatley because Marshall has such a responsive low end that it became over powering. This particular model is definely a rock amp - it can be clean but as mentioned before it is not Fender Clean. I was using a Keeley Compressor but the amp doesn't need it - I go straight into the amp sometimes use a delay. As you get into the more overdriven sounds in channel 2 depending on your pickup config it tends to generate more noise. What I do like about it thought is when you roll back the volume when in channel 2 it cleans up very nicely. When it comes to playing rock this gets the job done. When I play classic rock or heavy metal covers it sounds like the record. I guess you could play other types of music that require more clean tones and this would work but there are better amps that can get that sound more cheaply. One thing I did was check out the speaker which is a Celestion G12B. I believe they are a fairly new model. I was concerned that it may be a cheaper Celestion model not made in England - WRONG assumption. They sound somewhat similar to a vintage 30 more aggressive sound - checked the back and they have a HUGE magnet (bigger is better). EL34 power tube section and 12AX7 preamp - this old standard config is my favorite. Speaker emulation sounds good although I forgot that the amp was on standby/ silent record and it was coming out front in the PA (be careful). Reverb is very good. The amp is heavy - well constructed. I bought a Studio Slip Clamshell for it which will protect it but not add extra weight when tthey move it. My go to AMP is a Koch Multitone which sounds like a Fender Twin Clean and almost like this Marshall for heavier types of music. Since I started playing classic rock again I wanted a Marshall because that is the ultimate rock amp for the style I am playing.
