I play buckethead, steve vai. And classic rock. Has it got good cleans? What's it like compare to 6505? Would u recommend it? And has it been discontinued as not many places stock it? Thanks

The 3120 was also called XXX, and the JSX/3120 II would be better.
It's not being discontinued AFAIK, though maybe you'll find it with different names.

For buckethead and steve vai and classic rock, definitely better than a 6505.
It has better cleans and a less angry distortion.

We already told you what we thought about it in one of the previous threads you made about the thing, so what do you wanna know at this point?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Same stuff mentioned in the other threads.

A JSX would be ideal for that stuff.
A fireball won't.
A 6505 won't.
A rectoverb could be but I'd rather go for the JSX.
An ironball could be but I'd still rather go for the JSX.

JSX would be better, however wasn't the JSX based off the XXX? I think XXX will be a bit to compressed and Mesa DR like though. JSX sounds a lot cleaner to me.

But to me TS from all the threads you've mad it feels like you're not really sure what you want yet. That is OK we've all done it, we can help but just look into stuff if you're unsure

the JSX looks great but you can only buy it second hand here and Ive had bad experiences also my brother is a big JS fan... this is what am like I keep going round in circles lol. The ironball pretty cheap here so I'd be able to get a decent cab around 600€ Also it's pretty versatile with the gain boost also the shared EQ is fine for me as I always keep it the same for both channels. Also on thomann the price of the rectoverb 25 dropped from 1680 to 1300is! But I would prefer a head and cab. Also is Engl customer service really that bad? Or I could get a mini recto but a cheaper Cab?

Again, if JSX is out of question consider Engl Blackmore or maybe Engl Screamer if you want cheaper. And for the love of god dont make million threads when all your questions can be contained in one.

The peavey XXX II is the JSX.
#16
I have a XXX and a XXX II. The prefer the XXX because it has a great thrash tone. Not sure that is what your after but from the sounds of it a JSX/XXX II is better fit.
If you want idea of what the XXX sounds like listen to the first Lazarus AD cd. I think Havok uses XXX II on their stuff. Or used to.
#17
Thanks I'll have a look at them. My budged might be able to stretch to get a mesa boogie express plus 5.25. How much gain has they got because I've read they haven't got enough for a metal tone without a boost
#18
The mesa express series has enough gain for high gain blues at most, and it won't do modern metal even with some serious boost.

Also for the money of one of them you could get two JSX's in europe.
