Well from what I've heard the Ultra was basically the former Triple X. I'm not sure what 550 canadian is in USD but that's probably not a bad deal. I'd talk him down a bit though... because the ones I've seen go for quite cheap, although being the predecesser to the Triple X can't sound that bad.

I wasn't sure if the trade would cover the whole thing. And yes I'd say that's worth it. Spider is about 200, emgs are about 200, pedal maybe 50 so yea lol. You have a cab?

Yea Marshall cabs usually work well with peaveys. I've got a Mode Four w/ the V30s and it's great with the JSX. Although I've heard Orange's 2x12 is one of the best out there, along with the bogner Shiva 2x12, I've never played through one. I'd check ebay for cabs, they usually have alot, although shipping can be a bitch. I luckily found one that was local so I went and picked it up.

I've also heard good things about Mesa 2x12s and Recto 4x12s, Carvin Legacy cabs, and can tell you Genz-Benz G-Flexs are great.

Well see the high gain peavey amps all have massive amounts of gain in the preamp, which equates to not having to crank them to get a good tone. My JSX, 5150s and XXXs I've played all sound good at low volumes because of it. They're not much different from any other amps, just the standby power thing, you let it warm up for 30secs- a min on standby then turn it on. I always recommend new tubes too, and since I've fallen in love with JJs I always recommend them. Whether you'll need them or not you won't know until you get the amp though. I don't know what else to say really on the subject... lol.
