I'm not really a metal player but I'd say the XXX. The Bugera's do sound good, but they can be a bit unreliable, and I just prefer the sound of the XXx

Even with all the QC problems, Bugera just sounds really good for the price. Tough call, I would go for the Bugera and save the dough...I mean its $400 less and you could easily have the 333 looked over by a tech and have any loose ends tied up for $100. That leaves you with $300 left. Idk...like I said tough call. I'm in love with the 6262...my buddy has one and it plays amazing for the price.

i heard the 333xl has a more modern sound than the xxx, and it sounded like this to me as well. opinions?
#10
Well, I know that the 333XL is based on the Peavey, so it supposed to sound kinda the same.

But as said the Bugera is not as reliable as a Peavy.

the 333 is based on the XXX but cheaper, and the XXX is my dream amp - XXX!!!

Yeah, what i don't want is a metallica sounding vintage distortion amp if you know what i mean though. and since when is the 333xl based on the peavey xxx? i heard it was more similar to the mesa recto if anything.

oops, i thought it was 333 sorry!

you might want to try them out in this case...

the 333xl is based on the peavey JSX, which is basically a modded XXX. i'd go for the XXX though, more of a raw, tight sound and better QC than the bugera.

then again, instead of looking for a XXX used, you could get the bugera 333 new.

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

I'm looking into the peavey xxx more. got a great deal on craigslist for $500. Also i saw another good deal for a randall cab with vintage celestion 30's for around 500. Should I do it?
