JP-2C live videos, high quality (Whitesnake, VH and more)

Hey dudes, This is a gig I did a few weeks ago. I used the JP-2C and it's captured here completely live from the desk. Tone is just a hair or two brighter than I got standing in front of it but still a very good representation of the amp I think! Link is to the whole playlist - there's Whitesnake, V...

Re: Can the Mark V nail Michael Romeo's rhythm tone?

I'm a big fan of both Romeo and the Mark V and I certainly think you can get in the ballpark. I'd use Mark IV or Extreme mode. There was a marked change in Romeo's tonal fingerprint from the Odyssey album onwards when the Engls got involved. Things became VERY hi-fi, almost clicky and extremely comp...

Re: Boogie Mark V brown sound

Ed, Is that you trolling us mere mortals :P ? Edit: see next post Haha, thankyou! Just tried your settings and I am surprised at how high you run the channel volume and the overall volume. I have never had to run my amp at 5 Master on 90 watts and man, it shook me (In a good way). Its amazing that ...

Re: Boogie Mark V brown sound

Thank you guys! Well... I've always hated channel 2 until now. Sounds much more Marshally now with these settings. I've always thought both Crunch and Edge were thin and wimpy sounding. Who know zeroing out the bass would have done the trick, lol. However, I'm getting more hot-rodded AC/DC than Van ...

Re: JP2C doing VH

Thanks man, my feelings exactly. I wish I hadn't picked a VH tune actually as people elsewhere seem to have focused on that aspect. Thanks for your constructive points and I couldn't agree more.

Re: Don't forget about the clean channel

I use the clean channel about 20% of the time, ch.3, 30% & ch.2, 50%. I have my clean dirtied up so that when the guitar volume is all the way, it gets kind of meaty to where ch.2 picks up from there at half volume on the guitar. Ch.2 has the gain at 9-10 o'clock pushed in. Ch.3 has the gain at 3 o...

JP2C doing VH

I wanted to compare my basic rhythm sound with the one I had three years ago, so I created this comparison. The track is Van Halen's Aftershock. First half: Suhr Modern Pro - Boogie JP-2C - V30 - SM57 Second half: EVH Wolfgang - EVH 5150 III - Greenback - SM57 Verb added in Logic https://soundcloud....

Re: JP-2C vs. Mark V - an alternate view

I don't know whether this helps or hinders anybody (it certainly undermines my original post) but I finally replaced the V today with a second JP-2C. It's just so perfect for me - I loved the V but this just fixes all the minor niggles I had and it's smaller, neater and simpler and runs cooler with...

Re: JP2C + Mark V = redundant?

I have both and I'm very pleased I do. The JP is bigger, bolder, yet furrier/crunchier and slightly less immediate. It has surprising versatility within its subset of tones and its push/pull knobs are incredibly well-thought-out. The MIDI control and the lack of superfluous features just seal the de...

Re: Boogie Mark V brown sound

Really like this. Thanks. :mrgreen: :mrgreen: I was thinking of grabbing a Marshall pedal of some type to get that flavor with the Mark V a little more, but this satisfies that. Thanks!! Glad I could help. I'm still loving the V and gigging with these settings all the time. I've been lazy on the cl...

JP-2C vs. Mark V - an alternate view

Hi guys. Picked up my JP-2C around three weeks ago and wanted to let it sink in before I shared my thoughts. I love it! What a magic little box. So small and neat yet insanely powerful and punchy. The flexiblility is perfectly judged - I can get the clean channel (which is exquisite) to break up jus...
