Thank you, my playing that night was atrocious, open mics can do that. I didn’t plan on playing that amp but my JP2C was unavailable that night. I used the lead channel - volume 1 @ 7, treble 7, bass 2, mid 5, master 1.5, lead master 8, lead drive 4, presence 7. Most knobs pulled except the bass shift.

I played a gig with my 60 watt Mark II C+ with graphic EQ. It sounded awesome:) I have to get it recapped at some point.

Mark C++ is back to #1 in the rotation. The Mark IV showed me some new tricks that I incorporated into the C++ sound. The Mark IV needs to have certain knobs on 10, like the drive on the Lead ch. & the volume, treble on the RHY2 ch. The lead masters should be run high @ 7-8. The JP2C is very simple and handy with great tone and unmatched versatility.
It's hard to pick an amp to use and leave the others home. Luxury First World Problem at it's best.
