60/100W Limited Edition Tube Guitar Amplifier Head with 3 Channels, Dual 5-band EQs, Reverb, Footswitch, MIDI-switchable Effects Loop, CabClone Output, and MIDI Switchable
In an interview conducted by Amit Sharma of musicradar on Oct. 19, 2017, Thomson is quoted as saying "This is the new Petrucci signature head that’s based on the Mark IIC+ - which had that classic Dream Theater and early Metallica sound. It’s probably the best amp I’ve ever played and I’ve been using it over the last year of touring on the Gray Chapter cycle" and “Despite the fact I have my own signature amp, I’ve just started using this one. I’ll still plug in my Riveras on different stuff - they’re great amps in their own right - but I’ve never been so impressed by one amp."more
If you play a 7 or 8 String Guitar you have to check this amp out. The voicing and total control you get with the low tunings is incredible. This amp makes your guitar growl. So what’s not to like about the JP-2C? Virtually nothing, unless a forest of controls pushes your panic button. The thing is, complex as it may look, everything on this amp is there for good reason, and the logic of it all quickly becomes apparent as you start exploring what each channel has to offer. In short, the JP-2C replicates many of the qualities of the Mark IIC+ while delivering greater clean headroom and more distortion. It’s a surprisingly flexible amp considering it was made to accommodate John Petrucci’s style, and even if its furious gain potential isn’t something everyone needs, the JP-2C is by no means a one-trick pony. This is an amp that’s absolutely worth it.
