Wouldnt look to the JSX if your looking for rhythm tones... The one I demo'ed just fell short with any rhythm playing i threw at it. If you looking for a more all-a-rounder go for the Triple...

Also the Tripple XXX would be better for a hardcore metal tone on the crunch channel since its higher gain than the jsx on the crunch channel. If I were you I would try to run it the opisite way, use the Ultra for the rythm tones and the crunch maxed out with the mids boosted for lead work, since the ultra channel is what really sets these amps apart. You could aways use a tube screamer to push the crunch channel alittle more, but believe me on the triple it has quite a bit of gain on tap, at 9:00 its in solid JCM 800 terittory on the lower gain channel.

Im back to getting the XXX. At first the Vypyrs were coming out, and i was stoked about trying them, so i did, and...they are amazing. BUT not for me. So im back to the XXX.

I relize i may not have the $$ for the 120w combo, so i have one question for those of you who own the super 40s.

How similar is the ultra channel compared to the higher wattage models? Im asking because there are a tube or two less in the 40s and im curious to know how it sounds.

Also since its so much lower wattage than the others, how does it sound at louder volumes?

I've got the super 40. It has 4 preamp tubes, isn't that the same as the other models?

Anyway without playing the higher wattage ones, you can still have as much gain as you will ever want. And with my weber attenuator it sounds better cranked imo(just slightly looser bass), but for death metal or something you probably don't want to crank it all that much.

i could have sworn the 40s had one less tube, but oh well, you should know. Do you think i should look for EFX or without? All i mainly use is reverb and delay, and i have a Boss DD-6 for that.

Since this is a thread about Peavey XXXs i have a question. Im looking for metal amp(Pantera, A7X, BFMV) and im looking at one of eBay for around 300-350$. Is this a good deal, and will it fit my music?

Oh, I also like to play hard rock, and stuff like Nirvana, Metallica, Megadeth, EVH.

Yes 100% sure, i don't know why you guys think it only has 2.

If it had two then it wouldn't have as much gain as the higher wattage ones, which i think is what Bjovi was getting at for the presumed difference in sound.

I actually have the amp, mine has 3 Electro Harmonix 12AX7's and 1 Sovtec LP in the phase inverter. And then 2 Mesa EL-34's.

Lol I do too, but I never bothered to check. I just remember reading the specs a long time ago .

Yeah, well I dont really play heavy sounding stuff like BFMV all the time. Kinda' mix Dimebag with Synyster Gates and you'll kinda' get how I play.

still the XXX.

Syn Gates has an incredibly bright lead tone, to the 6505 might be too dark, as well as the rhythm tone of A7X isn't really the darkest. Go XXX.

The 6505 isn't nearly as versatile since it only has 2 channels, and it has that dark and fizzy metal tone. And if you play the different kinds of A7X, you should know that their music style is uber ****in versatile and all over the place.

Yeah you can get a good bright tone out of the triple xxx, sometimes too bright lol. But you can still get it darker too.

Anyone have a site with sound clip of the JSX with different tubes?
My JSX 2112 combo has the original EL34 Tubes, but I would like to hear how the 6L6 or the KT77 tubes sound.

Sucks, man, that sounded like a godly deal. But no worries, those things are for sale all the time.

Got bored today... So I decide to take my Ultra apart to see what makes her tick and see what I could tweak. While doing that I also ended up re-finishing her as well lol

So here's the pics....
