I am getting a new head soon.

I want a Mesa Boogie rectifier like distortion sound but I can't afford a Mesa so I was wondering if anybody has or has had a Peavey Triple XXX and is it good for getting that crushing metal tone?

i like the crunch channel the most. its not like a "plexi crunch" channel, but a brutal metal crunch. it definetely gives you that crushing overdriven (sorry i just had to put that there) metal tone. then again, the 5150 might be more suited for you, what kinds of metal tones are you looking for (bands, etc)

Head and Cab for $130? You don't need a head and cabinet, you need a psychological examination.

I had one but sold it for a 5150. The xxx was way to bright and the ultra channel was lacking

^ eh

I have the XXX 40 combo with KT77's, and mine gets a pretty damn fine A7X sound (judging by TS username), as well as a KSE tone. It's my favorite amp, and If i ever have enough money and room, ill get the XXX head and throw a nice darker set of tubes in it.

True, the XXX is a tad bright, but if you want the versatility with an excellent metal capability, GO XXX


and for the love of god people, use the XXX/JSX/Ultra thread!!!
