    Product Description

    The Peavey JSX head is a the 3-channel, EL34-powered head, which was designed with legendary virtuoso Joe Satriani to combine the tonal flexibility and responsive, versatile gain structures he's always sought into a single amp. The resulting JSX features a completely pure, articulate Clean channel; a punchy Crunch channel that's great for rhythm and leads; and an explosive Ultra channel with loads of gain, a vintage British flavor, and outstanding "chunk" on even the E, A and D strings. Other features include global Resonance and Presence controls; 3-band EQ per channel; a fantastic, fully adjustable Noise Gate; and separate Fat switches on the Crunch and Ultra channels.

    Peavey Electronics and Joe Satriani set out to create an amplifier that would give the widest range of EQ options and gain structures possible. As a starting point in creating this ultimate tone amp, Peavey amplifier design engineers began with two amps Satriani has used extensively throughout his career: the Peavey Classic® 50 and, more recently, Peavey Triple XXX® Series amps. "I started to rely on those amps quite a bit, but I wound up in a situation where my live rig was completely different from what I used in the studio," he said. One of the main goals of the JSX amp project was to bring these different tones and EQ options together in one amp.
