Re: Power Amp suggestion for JP2C stereo setup

You might want to consider using the slave out on the JP-2C (dry) - no effects on the loop. This is how the manual suggests a possible WDW setup could be configured. What works best really depends upon the type/quality of effects you tend to use and whether you want to add modeling to the wet setup....

Re: Reverb circuit

Thanks for the reply Bandit. Your suggestion on the test is a good one. I know in some cases it is preferable to have it after the FX loop. Pre-send is not necessarily a universal routing design, although very common. Most of the amps Mesa makes where I could get schematics indicates pre-send is the...

Reverb circuit

It appears that the reverb circuit is before the FX Loop. Does anyone know for sure? I think ME locked the schematics up in a vault over there.

Re: Full JP-2C review

Re: Classic Rock and Lead Tones

One thing I found that significantly changes the way this amp responds is what guitar I am using. I have played a variety of guitars through this and other quality amps and I have never played through an amp that reflects such variation in great sounds with each guitar. Usually I found that a partic...

Re: Thinking about downscaling

Also - one thing I really missed about the Mark V was having a clean that breaks up well. That's something the JP-2C doesn't do. From everything I've seen the Rectifier will do that - so I get a bit more versatility. The JP-2C does a lot, but not everything. I am glad I'm keeping it though - I play...

Re: Driving me crazy

One thing that amazes me is that I can play the jp-2c at home (not very loud but not super quiet either) and get great sounds across all the channels. True it ultimately shines at high volumes, but buying other amps is not going to get you the sound you say you are missing in the bedroom. 10 x 10 is...
