Re: JP2c not enough gain/thin sound?

Have you heard back at all on what the issue might be?

Re: Pull deep location - JP2C and iic+

Just gave it a try, no impact from Pull Deep when using FX Send from the c+.

So Stephen would that mean that using the slave out I am inc negative feedback from the iic+ power amp into the signal and therefore it is present in both amps?

Pull deep location - JP2C and iic+

Hi all I have a question for the technical boogie family. - I run my iic+ into the poweramp of the JP2C - I use slave out instead of FX Loop from the iic+ to capture power amp tone (inc the Pull Deep) - Pull Deep is hardwired on in the JP2C - The signal returns into the JP using the FX Return. Quest...

Re: JP2c not enough gain/thin sound?

Yeah that is very low gain for those settings. This is what mine sounds like with G and T at 3o’clock. Note this is double tracked but it still has a tonne of gain at those settings.

Re: JP2c not enough gain/thin sound?

I’ve got mine running through an Axe FX IN 4CM so I might try it on its own in case I haven’t set it up with unity gain.

Re: JP2c not enough gain/thin sound?

I just listened to the clips. The gain levels on my JP are the same as yours at those settings. For other JP owners, if yours is much higher at this setting and this is indicate of a faulty tube please share.

Re: JP2c not enough gain/thin sound?

I’d say try higher Treble and lower bass. Consider treble to be a second gain knob. On the original 2c+, or any Mark with the exception of maybe a c++ which has much higher gain levels, with numbered knobs you wouldn’t have high gain running treble at 5 (or noon on the newer clock face dials). Stand...

Re: Kind of mixed up with saturation mod....

V4 had the larger and more satisfying impact for me. V6 a bit more subtle to my ears.

Re: Want more liquidy-ness. Should I mod my red stripe III DRG or get a studio preamp?

I'm sure I'll eventually try a "IIb+," but at this point, it just seems like so much effort to send it in for the mod, when at that point (now owning a Mark III, StudPre, IIb) I'll have almost spent the $ for a IIc+ itself, and that's been the tone I'm chasing all along. Comforting to know if I do ...

Re: Want more liquidy-ness. Should I mod my red stripe III DRG or get a studio preamp?

Have you tried or considered a JP2C? It has the big sound and liquidness when you crank the gain. It’s just a little bit saturated compared to the vintage amps but still likely to be everything you’re looking for.

Re: Want more liquidy-ness. Should I mod my red stripe III DRG or get a studio preamp?

It does have the push pull added for bass shift and pull deep as part of the mod. The Treble pull shift and pull brights we’re already included as switches in the stock studio. When engaging pull deep on the c+ it just seems to have more impact. This isn’t isolated to the studio. It also applies to ...

Re: Want more liquidy-ness. Should I mod my red stripe III DRG or get a studio preamp?

This one was modded by someone who had another Studio modded to c++ by Mike B so I believe he used that as the basis for his mods. I'm not sure if there are ++ schematics floating around but I think there are c+ schematics.

Re: Want more liquidy-ness. Should I mod my red stripe III DRG or get a studio preamp?

I recently picked up a studio with c++ mod and its the closest any of my amps have come to sounding like my DRG c+. That list includes Mark V, JP2C, Quad Pre, Mark IV in no particular order. They all get 'close' but have their own inherent thing. The Studio with this mod has that same raw vintage-es...
