I must admit... SS amps are pretty cool. I've owed both, tubes and SS in the last 18yrs of playing. I play metal, nu metal. Recto type sound, like Disturbed, Rob Zombie.

Currently have the XXX. When I bought it, it was a toss up between that or the 5150/6505. Without question, I went with the XXX. To me, the 5150/6505 are WAY over-rated. They sound terrible.

Anhow, I've decided to get another SS amp as they seem to have more punch and more adjustable gain / presence. The XXX is balls out presence that is too uncontrollable. (but not as bad as the 5150/6505)

Here's what I'm looking at:

I'm leaning towards the G3, less expensive, great sound, has a bit warmer tube sound, less digital sounding.

V2 sound great but too pricey, I think.

the v2 will sound better then the g3 because it has a tube pre amp for the distortion channel, as well as the valve dynamic tube in the power section. the v2 also has a built in graphic eq which makes a huge difference in the sounds you can make. i just love mine, check out ebay for the v2, i saw a couple newer ones going for 700-800 ish

Static, you have the dream gear that I'm wanting.

How do you like the G-flex?

ill let you know tomorrow, i just bought and its supposed to be delivered tomorrow, it should be pretty sweet sounding since the v2 puts out a bunch of bottom end and the cab should make it sound amazing

Don't forget to get some sound bytes up...

Anyone else have some sound bytes of any of these amps?
