Why Buy From N Stuff Music

A Legend, 30 Years In The Makings:
If you play electric guitar, chances are you’ve heard of John Petrucci and Dream Theater. You may even know of our 30-Year relationship building many of his favorite amplifiers – the very same amplifiers you might have chosen for your sound. This distinguished list includes the MARK IIC+, Dual Rectifier, TriAxis, MARK IV and MARK V to name a few.

In celebration of John’s talent, his life-long dedication to our shared art, and the long relationship we’ve enjoyed with him, we are proud to introduce a MESA first; The JP-2C - Our first unlimited-build Signature Amplifier.

And YES, it’s a MARK IIC+! A next generation Re-Issue of the legendary amp so many Recording Artists, MESA enthusiasts and Tone Freaks the world over covet, often searching high and low to find. Only THIS IIC+ pulls in an enhanced feature set born from our collaboration with John over a period of three decades of research and development.

Simplicity In Design:
Much like a race car or fighter jet, the JP-2C strips down to bare essentials to get the job done effectively, in the simplest way. It’s a purpose-built, no compromise rendering that aims at one single goal; deliver the most aggressive, purest sounding IIC+ EVER in a versatile package that delivers the goods to meet John’s recording and stage needs. All Things Heavy! But more specifically; the highest headroom Clean sound possible, a Crunch rhythm that has Lead Channel gain available, but is tight, grinding and articulate, and the ultimate Boogie Lead Channel with access to even more saturation and the ability to track any technique and speed while also reaching to the stratosphere for single note solos.

In that spirit, unlike other MESA amplifiers, the JP-2C foregoes the concept of multiple voicing Modes derived from other MESA circuits and instead dedicates each of the three Channels exclusively to circuit voicing’s of the MARK IIC+, including the new SHRED Mode, which further enhances the top end harmonic layering of the original IIC+ Lead Circuit.

60 or 100 Watts - The Heart of the Original MARK IIC+:
A long-time MESA feature, directly off the classic MARK IIC+ and at the heart of this amplifier is the 60/100 Power Switch. One of the very first “modern amp” features MESA pioneered in the late '60s, this switch puts the center two power tubes in Standby Mode and allows you to operate at a reduced power setting. This is great for smaller venues, rehearsals, increasing power tube life by swapping and also imparts a slightly brighter, snappier response that some find desirable. It also allows more power tube saturation at lower volume levels for those who may find that preferable. Either way, the 60/100 switch adds versatility and options to the already impressive arsenal here in the JP-2C.

Bought at Nstuff in 2016, this amp is a solid amp with loads of options and tons of tone. With a small pedal board the three channels and built in reverb makes for a cover all amp. Play country , blues, blues jazz and metal(from 70s to modern) it can do them all. 100 watts means plenty of power. This is the last amp I will ever buy, just perfect for me and my set up. Mesa Mark series has learning curve , if you just take the time to read and comprehend the manual you too will love this amp. Also get a great cabinet like Mesa 2x12 or 4x12 or a Freidman 4x12 or 2x12 with quality speakers. Nstuff were very helpful in testing the amp and made sure I was happy with my selection of a great amp. My one small complaint is the knobs are too close together and it's easy to bump one while adjusting another, but it's only a small problem .
