Hmm...Is it the Fallen Angel 60DSP?? Cuz i like that amp a lot.

On the other hand the XXX is damn good too. Idk man theyre like both equally as good for the sound you want. I think it may be a preference kind of thing.


[edit] I just voted for the XXX. it has three channels for more flexibility.

xxx doesn't do blues or classic rock. neither amp does. i own an XXX, does great for metal/hard rock.

i'd say the XXX and a maxon OD-9 for blues/classic rock.

I don't know about the 2nd amp, but the XXX is sterile. If I had the choice of cleaning a wound with rubbing alcohol or a XXX amp, I'd choose the XXX.

I tried out a XXX 2x12 with my PRS for a weekend, and the only time I got a clean I thought of as tolerable was when I jacked the mids ALL the way up. It's like there's no sweet spot with that amp. And yeah, compared to my Mark IV's distortion, the XXX sounded like characterless buzzing.

^ it's also worth half the price of a mark IV.

and i quite like the clean on it.

Well, it's funny. I was quite optimistic when I tried out the XXX. After all, it was my former boss's amp, and he dotes on the thing constantly. And this is a guy who owns 40+ guitars, including 11 Gibson Les Pauls (all Customs or better), and uses a Marshall JCM2000 TSL half stack as his on-stage amp. But he insists that the XXX is his favorite amp. And he plays in a classic rock cover band, hates shred, etc etc, so I figured that it was a good bet I'd like his amp. So he sent it out for repairs, and as a favor for him, I picked it up on my way home for the weekend, eager to try it out. And I sat down with it for a while and was just really disappointed. But, that's just my personal experience.

^ indeed he does.

i know the XXX isn't the end all amp, but i got the 2x12 for $600. and that's great value. the thing of the XXX, it's better than anything for metal getting into the $700-$800 range and lower. not like, zomg xxx is t3h ultimate buttshecks. but for how much they go used, they're a steal.

They're great amps for what they are, I'll give it that. No complaints from me. I'd rather take a Triple XXX Over the JSX, too.

A set of tubes and a bias does the thing wonders.

I thought the XXX halfstack was pretty effin sweet sounding myself. Really nice sound. A great alternative if you have to have a Recto but dont have the cash. IMO.

although personaly i would get a traynor YCV50 with an overdrive pedal (to use as a gain boost)
TEEP!!! Oiiiiiiieeeeeeeyyy!!!!!!
#21
In that price range consider the Traynor YCV50 blue and B-52 AT100 as well.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
#22
Alright I have a couple questions.
Any one ever try the Fallen Angel?
And would the XXX be loud enough to gig with?
#23
(1) Not me, and

(2) Yep, depending on the venue. The 1x12 40 watt should be good enough for a small/medium venue. And of course any amp can be mic'd.
Hi, I'm Peter
#24
i haven't tried the xxx, but judging by the jsx, and everything i've heard about the xxx, I'd probably take the ashdown. If you crank the gain on the clean channel, you can get blues and classic rock tones. Which are actually pretty nice. The fallen angel pretty much reminds me of a slightly more modern sounding marshall tsl. with one less channel.

I'm not too sure about the reliability, though.

^ yeah, i'd say the ashdown would do it fine. But probably wouldn't be my first choice, as derek says. It got a little muddy as you cranked the gain up...

if you're only playing metal that's as heavy as 80's stuff, I'd just get a more classic amp, with an OD and EQ, perhaps. Peavey classic 30, something along those lines.
