Hey guys so ive done a lot of research on some amps in my price range and narrowed it down to 2 amps.
I am about to start a metal band (yes another metal band lol) and i need some more opinions before i buy either.

Krank Rev. Jr 50 (used) for 400$
Peavey XXX (used) for 500$

I wont be really needing too much wattage but i just need the better "tone" choice for gigging (small-medium gigs).
I am aiming towards a Killswitch engage or August burns red tone. Thanks for viewing!

I have the Peavey XXX combo, I bought it almost 3 years ago now and I love it, its great. The cleans are good, dirty, and its quite the metal amp. I play alot of LoG, Parkway drive, some protest the hero and it does Bodom pretty good too. I've also played carol of the bells on it a couple times and its pretty good.
just give me a fender and let me rip

Have you had any experience with the Krank Rev Jr Pro?

why do you keep posting so many amp threads, you know you can stick to some of them, and repost.

do some of you own research. you have been on here a matter of days and have started like 7 or so threads on this in the last few days.

go out and play them. see if you like them. if you can't go out and play them, listen to youtube demos, or netmusicians.org demos.

make the decision yourself.

i will tell you, that i have never heard a krank amp i have liked, and i really am not a fan of the XXX either. but that is my opinion. you may love krank, but you gotta get what tickels your fancy, not anybody elses.

either will do the job fine for a metal band, so just get what you like better after listening to them.

The Krank will probably get you closer to an ABR tone since the XXX is a brighter metal amp... that being said I personally love the XXX
It'll be a good call either way!
