Why Buy From N Stuff Music

Inspired by their 40-year relationship with John Petrucci and their 2016 collaboration with him on their first unlimited production signature amplifier, the JP-2C Head, they are proud to expand the offering with this new JP-2C 1x12 Combo! As is the case with John’s stunning JP Head, this new 1x12 Combo is all MARK IIC+ at heart and packs the same legendary performance of the fabled 100-watt IIC+ as well as all the updates and features of today’s JP-2C. All this headroom, horsepower, and burning Tone is packed into their legendary Boogie “wolf in sheep’s clothing” compact 19” combo format.

Simplicity In Design:
Much like a race car or fighter jet, the JP-2C strips down to bare essentials to get the job done effectively and in the simplest way. It’s a purpose-built, no-compromise rendering that aims at one single goal; provide the most aggressive, purest sounding IIC+ in a versatile package that delivers the goods to meet John’s recording and stage needs. The JP-2C offers the highest headroom Clean sounds of any Mark Series amp, one Boogie Lead Channel for tight, grinding rhythm work, and a slightly higher gain Boogie Lead Channel, with access to even more saturation yet the ability to track any technique and speed while also reaching to the stratosphere for single note solos. In that spirit, unlike other MESA amplifiers, the JP-2C foregoes the concept of multiple voicing Modes per channel and instead dedicates each of the three Channels exclusively to one of two voicings from the MARK IIC+. In Channels 2 and 3, it also adds a SHRED Mode, which further enhances the top-end harmonic layering of the original IIC+ Lead Circuit.

Channel 1:
Channel 1 is dedicated to Clean sounds and is optimized for the maximum headroom possible in the preamp section. Power section clip may be employed to attain some degree of overdrive in Channel 1, albeit at very high volumes due to the 100/60-watt rating of the JP-2C power section. Additional “drive” may be sought in the upper region of the MID control (beyond 12:00 o’clock) as the MID pot employed here is the same value and taper as our MID/BOOST control found on some of our newer MARK SERIES amplifiers. However, increased headroom in the preamp reduces the amount of overall “gain-boost” available as compared to our other amplifiers with this feature. This fact renders this more powerful MID control as just that, a MID that has increased range to add more midrange frequencies and a “cleaner” gain boost into the mix.

Channel 2:
Channel 2 is the JP-2C’s Crunch generator. This Channel is all about aggressive, tight overdriven rhythm sounds delivered with amounts of Gain usually associated with Lead Modes or Channels. It IS, in fact, a Lead Channel, the LEAD Channel from the MARK IIC+ in its original state, circuit-wise. The setting of the Gain has been optimized for its performance in this category of sounds and though it can definitely be used for Lead sounds of all kinds, it is perhaps the best choice when dedicating a Channel in the JP-2C to Crunch rhythm work. To achieve the most famous, now classic MARK IIC+ grinding rhythm sounds in Channel 2, you can now employ one of two 5-Band Graphic Equalizers… yes, here in the JP-2C, you have a separate EQ for each of the high gain Channels! This means greater flexibility and improved accuracy when crafting your sounds and allows you to arrive at a truly no-compromise set of sounds for both rhythm and lead! This was impossible on the original MARK IIC+, hence the fact that many top Artists of the day used two MARK IIC+s and a MIDI switcher (also contained here) in a rack system to call up dedicated amps with different settings for each sound. In both Channels 2 and 3 of the JP-2C, they have removed the VOLUME 1 Control and the LEAD MASTER control from the Panel Layout as compared to the LEAD Mode of the original MARK IIC+ in favor of user simplicity. The LEAD MASTER is a largely redundant control here in the JP-2C, and its setting has a very minimal role in the sound. The VOLUME 1 is a bit more sensitive and critical, and here in the JP-2C, it is preset internally (as they did in the MARK V) to its optimum setting for each Channel. The end result for the user is an amplifier that is MUCH easier to dial and arrive at the very best of the MARK IIC+’s most signature and mind-blowing sounds more quickly and with less “neurotic tweaking” required. There is NO compromise of the original’s performance and yet a SERIOUS benefit in the dial-ability of the JP-2C.

Channel 3:
Channel 3 is created with soaring lead sounds in mind. Their first priority was to meet and even exceed the incredible explosive attack, blistering sustain, and harmonic complexity of the very best of the MARK IIC+s. They, along with the amplifier’s namesake, feel they have achieved exactly that. Channel 3 boasts all the nuanced performance of the originals and delivers it with unbelievable authority due to the 100-watt Class A/B (versus 90-watt Simul-Class) power section. This difference in power section serves John’s musical style extremely well - In fact, his absolute favorite amplifier of the many IIC+s he owns is a 100-watt model. Channel 3’s character is, therefore, a little warmer, fatter, and compressed, and this plays well into its intended application for lead work of all styles and gain requirements.
