Massive all-tube power!

The all-tube Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani combo amp is the fruit of a partnership between Peavey and legendary guitar virtuoso Satriani. The JSX 212 translates the tonal flexibility and responsive gain of the Peavey JSX Joe Satriani Signature amp head into a modern combo amp.

Augmenting the original JSX amp's 3-channel, 120W configuration are 2 custom-designed 12" JSX speakers in an open-back cabinet, reverb with master control, and a line out with level control. The Joe Satriani Peavey combo amp also includes global presence and resonance controls; 3-band EQ and level on each channel; FAT switches, and fully adjustable noise gates for the Ultra and Crunch channels.

"We designed the JSX 212 not only for practicality, but also for tone and versatility," says Satriani. "The amp's tone comes to life in a big way using this 2x12 design, and the relationship between the combo and the player sets up an interesting interplay that you can't get with a head. It's a special experience having the amp and speakers in one unit."

sonic boom


from new york

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

this amp is ridiculous. period. i cant even begin to explain the tonal possibilities with this thing. the clean is crisp and sharp, and has the best compatibility with pedals ive ever seen. the crunch channel is AWESOME. ridiculous fat sound which can be enhanced even more with the FAT switches. Ultra channel has amazing sustain and a cleanness that i havent found on any other amps. fx loop is great too, the only thing is this amp is HEAVY. this amp will conquer any sonic needs you'll ever have. i find sometimes that people review amps without really trying them out to their full potential. this amp, as any amp, can sound really bad if use improperly, but can sound absolutely incredible if properly adjusted. i know that once you find the great tone in this thing you'll never turn back. it is truly a great amp and for anyone who is looking at it, i say GET IT.

Clearly not the best thing Satriani has ever done

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

After hearing about the new JSX and Satriani's work to customize this amp I was very enticed. I went to the local guitar shop and proceeded to plug and play. I cycled through all channels and tweaked every know for about 30 no avail. I could not find one thing I cared for about this amp. The clean channel was dull, the crunch/amber channel was crunch with no real defined tone... there was however a fuzzy after taste. The ultra channel was just noisy and wonder they put a noise gate on it. I honestly could not find anything that I really liked about this amp. Which was very disappointing because I went there with cash in my pocket to buy it. However Joe Satriani gets what he gets out of this map is a mystery to me.

Comments about Peavey JSX 212 Joe Satriani Combo Amp:

This is the best tube amp I have ever owned.All 3 channels sound killer. I prefer the crunch channel.I play Gibsons mostly and I cover a lot of 80's rock stuff, KISS, Judas Priest,early Metallica. Also a lot of punk stuff Ramones Sex Pistols,etc. It doesn't have the volume my other amps have but it has the best tone of any amp I have tried.I was even more impressed when I hooked it up to my Peavey XXX 4 x 12 cab. All my FX pedals sounded better than ever with this amp. Music 123 has the best price too. The Peavey XXX 2x12 cab would make a sweet extension cab if you can find one.
