peavey triple xxx vs. marshall tsl

A: None. There is nothing wrong with the light bulb; it's conditions are improving every day. Any reports of its lack of incandescence are delusional spin from the liberal media. That light bulb has served honorably, and anything you say undermines the lighting effect. Why do you hate freedom? Why don't you support our troops?

man, tough call

i would get:

the peavey XXX combo. the TSL head is great, but i've heard bad things about the jcm2000 combos regarding heat and solder joints. peavey makes good amps for a good price and they have really good customer service

the triple XXX's always seem muddy too me, but its really all about the sound. I think the xxx tends to lean towards the dual recto sound, and the marshall is well, a marshall. I personally would go for the 5150 2x12 combo. 60 watts so it will break up easy, and 2 speakers are better than one I always say.

5150's don't have a clean channel and i want one. so basically i need a decent clean channel and a killswitch/lamb of god type metal sound in one amp.

Buy my Marshall 6100 LM head, instead (subtle, shameless plug).

It kicks boths of those amps' arses with both arms and a leg behind its back. Check out the reviews at harmony-central.


PM me if interested.

Hey if you want to sound like everyone else get the Marshall but if you want your own sound go with the Triple XXX (one of the best deals)
