I currently have a B52 AT100 and have an opportunity to trade it for a Peavey XXX. Which would you recommend. I play mostly 70's-90's hard rock. Not really a huge metal person. What are the thoughts about which is the better amp, better tone, etc. Any help would be appreciated.
i'd trade for the xxx, you're making out huge on that deal.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.
XXXs cost about $800 more, so even if you don't like it, you can sell it for a huge profit.

Trade now before the guy changes his mind.

As everyone else said the XXX.

It will get better sounds all around and will do what you want it to.

Yeah I am pretty stoked so far. I have always been a fan of Peavey equipment and this is no exception.
I don't know much about B52 but Peavey high end amps,(5150,6505 and the XXX) are very popular for hard rock/metal/ GAIN. They are gain amps. Should be good for you, though I would not buy one. I do not like the clean tones they have and I play a lot of clean stuff. Not for me but I imagine it would be a good setup for you!

Hope this helps!

Thanks Butters. I am really happy with the tone. The active EQ is great, really allows some flexability in tones. I am happy with the cleans. I do not like a Fender like clean, I am more of a warm Marshall clean person. The crunch channel so far is my favorite, but the ultra is very good for leads and heavier passages.
dam you've got a windsor, a jcm 800, and now a xxx?

right Metallica is a given. Personally I like to pretend the bus exploded and killed them all in '86.

you have just successfully carried out the Louisiana Purchase of all amp trades.
