The 3120 is the new Triple X, Peavey made a few cosmetic changes to the amp, and replaced the stock power tubes with EL34, over 6l6, both amps can run ethier tube, no curcitry changes, only the Stock tubes. The 3120 is a much more versatile amp than the 6505, the cleans a better and its capabable of more styles of music. The 3120 works well for hardcore and metal, but it voiced way different than the 6505, its a much brighter and fuller sounding amp, but it lack a little of the rawness of 6505. A B both amps and get which one you like the best, personally think the 3120 is a better sounding amp, its more versatile, and the cleans very are useable, the od channels are a bit to gainy but they are both tamable and can get a really nice Plexi type OD to hotroded british stack with the right Eqing.

i was gonna say 6505=/= 3120 but you did an excellent comparison of it.

^+1 to both above posts

Cleans are better on the 3120/XXX

doesn't necessarily have 'less' gain like most people say...just a different kind of gain. But, as said above...its voiced differently than the 6505
