Mark V (IV Mode) - Metallica cover

Hi all I recently almost sold my V (was a done deal that fell through at the last minute - I had packed up and all). When I fell through I was so relieved and have been playing it more and more over the last couple weeks as a result. I have started using IV mode and recorded the god that failed from...

Re: Mark III blue stripe vs Mark IV??

Hey bud I only picked it up recently-ish (about a month ago) and still very much getting acquainted. As you know for anyone that's had a mark before it's easier enough to understand the tone controls and set bass low treble high etc etc, but it's another thing to understand how each of the pull pots...

Re: Mark III blue stripe vs Mark IV??

I haven’t heard a III. But I recently got a IV rev B and it records superbly. Like instant perfect tone. Didn’t require any mic tweaking. The right amount of bite, clarity and heaviness. My only issue with the IV, at least with mine, is the output knob is ultra sensitive with a terrible taper so it’...

Re: How to slave IIc+?

I could be missing something as I haven't had too much experience slaving into another tube poweramp. Anyone else feel free to confirm or correct. Slave out brings the output signal to line level, and goes into the FX Return of the III bypassing the III preamp. This way you're sending your iic+ tone...

Re: Mark IV - Worth getting?

My Mark IVb hardwood / wicker combo arrived yesterday. Still getting acquainted but it is great so far. Had a few teething issues in the beginning with tubes falling out during shipment. But up and running and working through different settings. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48017577331_485a0f...

Re: Mark iic+ Playthrough vid

I agree on the boogie logo. I love the flat vintage silk screen ones rather than the embossed. I have a couple around from the original combo and a spare headshell. At this point I’m undecided if the c+ is staying in the black shell or going in a wine Taurus wicker shell with the boogie logo. I’d ha...

Mark iic+ Playthrough vid

Hi all So I finally got around to putting something together to demo some of the tones in the lead channel of my DRG. This amp is just too good. The playing is geared mostly toward metal / prog metal... is very much unstructured, unplanned with lots os shameless chugga chugga and some lead mixed in ...

Re: The Mark IV thread....!!

Hi all I bought a mark IV which is on it's way. It is a rev B with the shorter curved faceplate and I've noticed the faceplate has "notches" taken out of the corners. It's certainly not a design on the A, and I think I've seen it on some B models but not all but it's hard to tell from some pics as i...

Re: Midi Control/Cab Clone/Low Volume

Hi I use Midi on the JP as I would assume most would. MIDI in general is cumbersome but from the JP side it's actually quite easy. The manual goes into great length about how to program. Essentially you have up to 9 midi channels to choose from and the manual details the preset program controls each...

JP2C LTD Signatures fading

Hey guys

For those with the LTD models, how are your signatures holding up? My JP sits in my study out of any direct light and feel like it's fading. I'll try post pics when I can.

Anyone else noticed anything similar?

Re: This is why replacing capacitors is NOT optional!

This gets me worried about mine. I'm fairly certain my c+ caps have never been replaced. I'll have to take the chassis out at some point soon to take a look.

Re: Mark IV - Worth getting?

It really is a great amp. It definitely is. Once you understand the amp, you can get a whole host of sounds out of it. Lately I have been using my LP's bridge pickup into my Mark IV's channel 1, with the preamp gain maxed. Some very nice, chewy, mildly over-driven tones. Some very good bite to it. ...
