I got myself a Peavey Triple XXX 40 watt combo yesterday, and while i really like it, i cant quite dial in a tone I really love. The active eq is making it difficult, so can anyone recommend me any settings which will get me an old in flames type of tone? I was also thinking about swapping the stock speaker for a vintage 30, would it be worth it?

Hey, I just got a Peavey XXX 40 EFX yesterday. I don;t know exactly what the In Flames tone should sound like, but my tip to you is start from noon on your ultra EQ and tweak it from there. Also, swapping the stock speaker is a good idea, but I would rather get an Avatar Hellatone 30. It has a warmer tone.

I found that this thread http://acapella.harmony-central.com/forums/showthread.php?t=948583 has some real nice info in it. And also www.grailtone.com has some settings, like one setting I like for the ultra is what they call the brown sound, where you eq it really low until you hear a little compression, only problem is the amp becomes quieter. Also another good thing is that since I don't like how the mids sound too much on the ultra channel, I'll scoop them, and then add my OD pedal to put some nicer mids back in.

Swapping speakers might be good, but also the tubes in the amp are substantial in the tone, because you can switch from 6L6 to EL34 power tubes, and many people like to rearrange the preamp tubes with lower gain ones too.

Thanks for the links, i'll have to try those settings outs, see how it goes. The stock tubes have just been replaced for EH tubes, i dunno if EH do 6L6 tubes but ive now got EL34's in the amp. I do have an MXR 10 band EQ, i guess i could throw that in the loop, buti was hoping to get a good sound of out of just the amp, no other pedals, etc.
