I'm thinking about selling my Peavey Triple XXX 60 Watt Combo. It's not a bad amp by any means, but it hasn't been doing it for me lately. My other guitarist plays a half stack and I notice when we swap rhythms for solos, I hear a major dropout in "balls" when I have to support him doing rhythm.

Will a half stack be my only solution? If so, do you think a solid state such as the Spider half stack would be able to get loud enough without sounding like ****?

If you have any other ideas for me for probably no more than 600 american, they'd be greatly appreciated.

thankyou

Reminds me of that drunkard who ran out of beer... he was so desperate, he drank furniture polish.

He came to a horrible end... but a beautiful finish.

How about you just get a 412 or 212 extension cab? It'll help with the balls. The Spider sucks and the XXX is a good amp. Don't even think about that trade. Mess with your EQ and try a Vader or Mesa or Avatar 212.

If you say so, I was really diggin' the Spider over my triple x. And the thing is, if I were to get an extension cab, I would need money which would come from selling the amp...

Do a brief search of this forum. If you like the Spider over the XXX, either you're a new breed of human or your shît's broke.

EDIT: Money and/or a DECENT amp.

i'm quite aware of the hatred towards the spider amps, you wanna just help me out in finding some options and I can narrow them down myself?

Well, with a budget of $600, you arent gonna get a good halfstack. I really think keeping the XXX is your best option.

ah I guess so. how much difference do you think a 2x12 extension would make?

maybe you could get a used mesa f 50. I went from a peavey xxx 120 watt combo to the f 50 and I like the mesa a lot more. It gets just as heavy if not more and is tighter. Plus it has a much better clean channel.

Not possible, lol.

I second the Mesa F-50 option.
