Before you consider swapping the transformers please watch a few demos of the 2203 KK (Kerry King JCM800) - it has the same transformers as the JVM410H.
I need to point that out every now and then because the 2203KK is considered to be "one of the best 800s ever made" also by guys who usually prefer the "vintage stuff" and say that the transformers of the JVM are "crap".
So it's more the circuit that makes a difference!
Also, a few of the guys on the old JVM Forum tried swapping out the transformers for MM ones. Some said it made no difference, whilst others thought it tightened up the bass (or something...) - but the general consensus was that any small perceived improvement wasn't worth the cost and effort of doing it!
I am also of the opinion that the stock transformers are fine!....
