Ok guys so my budget is about $700 for a nice tube combo for gigging mostly.

So should i get the:

-Peavey JSX Combo

-Peavey Triple XXX 212

-Peavey 5150 Combo

or the

Blackstar Ht-40

I want an amp with a heavy saturated distortion that can also cut through with sharp lead tone

sparkly cleans of course because i want to be able to play some jazz and bluesy stuff

This is with an EMG 81/85 set up

JSX combo, the triple xxx is a god option too, very under rated SS amp.
5150 is okay and the ht-40 has not so good cleans.
JSX wins over all.

^ wat. XXX is all tube...

I agree though, the JSX is the best amp on that list.

The Ultra is all tube too. I think you're thinking of the Supreme.
