yea i know thats what i was thinking UG has a mind of its own it seems
Yea you never know that might have been the reason. A guitar with active EMGs could definitely push the JSX slightly over the edge.

I would say JSX is more versatile than XXX, but there are a couple things that the XXX can do better.

My EQ Pedal makes my XXX sound like heaven. I use the Dano Fish N' Chips.

I also heard from the Peavey XXX Lounge (HERE) that putting EL34 tubes or JJ KT77's for the power tubes make a world of a difference to it. Also, for the preamp tubes, putting JJ 12AT7 in the V1 and V4 slots and JJ 12AX7 it the V2 and V3 slots gives the XXX even more versatility and adds a high end 'chime' to the clean channel that was never there before. As for the speakers, many people like the Celestion V30's (I prefer Hellatone 60L's from Avatar myself). You guys should search through that huge thread. It helped me so much.

I hope this helps!

i was in GC the other day playin on my dream XXX stack, lmao, and i had it on the ultra channel, gain on 7, treble on 7, mid on 4, bass on 6 and the volume half way up, and i was throwin down some riffs, then i stopped for a sec and thought, hmmm why isnt this amp sounding really really nice? i looked over and was like...oh ****, ill turn the treble up, i did and hit an open c, and damn that thing was searing!

im still tryin to get one.

In your opinion, which is better for gain and metal, the Super 40 w/o EFX or the 2x12

I'd go for the 40w one cause its less expensive and less money to spend on tubes too. The 120w 212 might be overkill and you can't crank it as much.

Oh but I see the 120w has three separate eq's, so if you really want to eq the crunch and clean separately then thats the one you'd have to get.
Now that i read all the stuff, it looks like the 120w 212 would be slightly better with its couple extra options.

yeah i was lookin more toward the 120w 2x12 too, just because it seems to have more EQing options, and it has a switch to lower the wattage used. that seems pretty damn useful. lmfao

that would work great for me, especially because i play in different places, i can adjust it accordingly.

350 is a steal for the 40 watter, I would expect the 212 to go for around 750-850, if someone gets on there who wants it.

No wattage drop switch on any of the Triple XXXs, still 120 watts is no big deal, they make high gain amps that a way so you don't get power tube OD which is a bit sloppy and loose.

On the ad it says it has a variable wattage switch. Maybe they are liars!

And actually i like to mix a little power tube saturation since with just preamp saturation its a little too harsh imo.

Thumbs up

I own a Peavey Triple XXX 212 Combo amp and I must say this:
Take off the little cage that protects the tubes and you will see a little knob (Imean really litte) mess around with that a bit it greatly alters the sound but remember its original setting. It changes the usage of all the tubes pre amp and power amp. Also for the love of God switch the speakers the stock speakers arent really great.

You Peavey Ultra owners . . . where and for how much did you get yours for? Is the "Crunch" channel similar to the Crunch channel on the JSX?

Im looking at maybe gettin the XXX as my next amp to replace my VK, and i was wondering if an eq pedal would help with the brightness of the XXX at all? Or maybe putting darker sounding tubes in it would help? Thanks.

Eq really helps out and tubes would make a pretty big difference as well... JJ's should darken it a bit... My Ultra can get pretty dark with just eq and its loaded with EHX tubes...
