I guess it would be a good idea to point out here that a III+ still sounds like a III, just nicer. It will probably still sound different than a JP2C. The clips I've heard of that do sound closer to my Studio Pre.

I have a Studio Pre too and it's very cool. One of my favorite pieces actually; I've had it for 11 years now. You should be able to snag one for $350-$400. It's in a similar tonal universe as the III+ but they're still quite different.


Ok sounds like I have some good more affordable options. I've decided to try and sell one of my more valuable axes so that I can get a used JP2C. I find that the expensive axes take some time to move though....we'll see how it goes.

I'm thinking about iii+'ing my Purple Stripe Coli and am looking for opinions. Should I go for it? Possible/Probable Cost?

I contacted Mesa and they said Mike B will only do the mod if he services the amp too. Servicing was $200-300 and the mod was $200 I think. That is without shipping each way which you'd also have to pay for of course....adds up pretty fast.

Played a stock Mark III 1/12 60 watt combo with graphic EQ this weekend. It was pretty awesome. I preferred it over the new Mesas I've played. I'm going to pick one of those up soon and maybe get the mod on down the line. The Mark IIIs seem like such a great deal.
