Up for sale, a Mesa Boogie JP-2C head in near mint condition and in perfect working order, complete with the original slip cover, footswitch, and paperwork. A modern iteration of the legendary Mark IIC+, the JP-2C boasts an enhanced feature set born from three decades of collaboration and development with John Petrucci. Much like a race car or fighter jet, the JP-2C strips down tube amp design to the bare essentials to get the job done effectively, in the simplest way. It’s a purpose-built, no compromise design that aims to deliver the most aggressive, purest sounding amp to meet John’s recording and stage needs.
In the spirit of simplicity, the JP-2C foregoes the concept of multiple voicing Modes derived from other circuits, and instead dedicates each of the three Channels exclusively to the circuit voicings of the Mark IIC+, including the new Shred Mode, which further enhances the top end harmonic layering of the original IIC+ Lead Circuit.
