Introducing the New Limited Edition JP-2C 1x12 Combo: A Masterpiece from MESA Boogie

At Chuck Levin's, we're thrilled to offer the latest addition to our Mesa Boogie offerings - the limited edition JP-2C 1x12 Combo. This powerhouse amp, inspired by our 40-year relationship with the guitar virtuoso John Petrucci, brings the iconic MARK IIC+ performance into a compact and versatile package.

Unmatched Simplicity and Performance

The JP-2C 1x12 Combo embodies the spirit of simplicity in design, much like a finely tuned race car or fighter jet. Stripping down to the bare essentials, it delivers the most aggressive, purest sounding IIC+ tones in a versatile format. Whether you're recording in the studio or performing on stage, this amp provides the highest headroom Clean sounds and two Boogie Lead Channels that cover tight, grinding rhythms to searing solos.

Channel Breakdown: Pure Tone Versatility

Channel 1: Dedicated to Clean

Optimized for maximum headroom, Channel 1 delivers pristine clean tones. The 100/60-watt power section allows for some overdrive at high volumes, and the powerful MID control offers a cleaner gain boost for added versatility.

Channel 2: The Crunch Generator

Channel 2, derived from the original MARK IIC+ Lead Channel, is perfect for aggressive, tight rhythm sounds. With its dedicated EQ and SHRED Mode, it allows for ultimate precision and flexibility, making it a go-to for crunchy rhythms and lead sounds.

Channel 3: High Gain Sustain and Explosive Attack

Designed for soaring lead tones, Channel 3 offers blistering sustain and harmonic complexity. The 100-watt Class A/B power section provides a warm, fat, and compressed sound, perfect for high-gain solos.
