Mesa/Boogie Rackmount JP-2C Mark IIC+ Tube Electric Guitar Amplifier Head at a Glance:
  • A Hard-rocking History
  • Sonic versatility
  • Amp adjusts to your needs
A Hard-rocking History

John Petrucci has been using Mesa/Boogies tube amplifiers since the very early days of Dream Theater, and the Rackmount JP-2C is a celebration of those three decades. The amp is based on Mesa's highly sought after Mark IIC+ that was the identifiable sound of John's guitar for many of those years. It has also been used by other well-known hard rock acts, as well as session musicians who have come to rely on the amps' liquidy overdriven tone. Sweetwater is extremely happy to offer these amps and be part of the legacy.

Sonic versatility

The original Mark IIC+ amps were beloved for their high-gain sound and clear cleans. Both of those sounds are very much on display in the Rackmount JP-2C. But the amp's three completely independent channels with five modes each let you dial in any shade of tone from mild crunch to over the top, from warm and round to aggressive and cutting. And the onboard 5-band equalizers let you further sculpt your tone to taste. And even with all of this control, the layout is done to make pulling up your favorite sounds intuitive and fast.

Amp adjusts to your needs

The original Mark IIC+ amps were just the springboard for John Petrucci when designing the Rackmount JP-2C. John also included features like a CabClone speaker-emulated line output, 60- and 100-watt operation, and MIDI programmability to make the amplifier even more versatile, and a great tool for the recording and touring guitarist. Dual 5-band equalizers are footswitchable to get three distinct sounds for each channel at the tap of a toe. And the included footswitch also controls reverb, channel switching, and much more.

The Heavy Metal God's have welcomed me to their chambers

I purchased this amp right after a John Petrucci "Tone Summit" and was almost ready for a "Lone Star" edition instead. John's and the MESA engineer's expert guidance quickly talked me out of that, as this was the amp for me! After lugging it from the box (no easy task as it is quite BEEFY) I cleared out my age old effects from my rack to make room. And many of them needed to go as they generated so much noise, many people thought I was running a "white noise" room scan when I fired up the QuadraVerb for instance. :) I placed the amp in standby and patiently waited for the shimmering tubes of goodness to prepare for the onslaught of power chords that were soon to be delivered. My Ibanez Pro Line had not been unsheathed from it's beaten up case in too long! It was time to wield the Axe of Thor and throw down some tone! I will say it was pretty easy to get good tone on channel two by following the basic setup from their recommended settings page. I focused on just playing the amp and not worrying about effects etc. on the first session. One thing I really didn't expect was just how dang clean the channel 1 is. I moved over to a Strat and enjoyed the shimmering goodness of that setup for a bit. You can get just a hint of overdrive if you want but it really excels at nice clean tones. I have since tried a Andy Timmons BB Preamp on the clean channel and it has totally opened up a myriad of choices and sounds with that channel. Still tweaking my channel two sounds and have since added my Line6 Pod X3 in the effects loop for reverb, chorus, delay only. It really sounds great through the effects loop and not so great in front of the amp. I am going to experiment with a dbx Compressor/limiter/gate next in the effects loop and see what it can do for me. Overall blown away by this amp and Sweetwater made it very easy on me to purchase.
