  • Yeah man I dunno. I was pretty impressed with the XXX cab. The other one that I'm gonna go try is the Randall XL cab w/v30's. That cab has got some great reviews.

      Randall is a lot like Peavey where they make killer stuff but don't get the respect the big boys do. The XXX sounds really good with V30's, almost as good as my G-flex but not quite You might want to try a G-flex 2x12. You would be surprised at how loud they get and the cab is a perfect match for the head. Wheresgrant has that setup and he said his other guitarist with a 4x12 can't keep up with him volume wise.

      • Nobody in my are carries Genz Benz. I'd have to go to Alberta for that which is just too much. The speakers in the XXX are V30 copies so maybe that's why I liked them so much. You're right though, they definately have this upper mid thing going on, but I figure that'll only help me cut through better in the mix.



        I'm thinking about adding an MXR 10 band EQ to my setup as well. Do you have any experience running an EQ in the loop?

          yes I do and I was actually going to get that one before I found a steal on the older blue MXR 6 band eq for $30 used. My eq adds a little warmth to the signal which I don't think the newer ones do. I basically have it set flat with some of the 800hz mids cut a little and some of the 200 and 400hz boosted just a tad. It really makes the amp sing. You also might want to check out the Danelectro fish n chips eq. I have heard nothing but great things about them and they are only thirty or forty bucks new. I agree that the XXX cab should cut through really well although I haven't had a problem cutting through with any cab so far.

            you might want to see if anyone in your area is at least an authorized dealer in your area that would be willing to order one in for you. Really after trying the G-flex I couldn't imagine owning a different cab, it is the single best piece of equipment I own and I have a lot of nice stuff

              • Jay, I listened to your stuff and I really like it. You are definitely right about the recording because I think with a good recording you guys would be pretty smokin. The guitar sound is nice and thick and your riffs are pretty killer as well. About the only thing I would change would be the singers delivery on some of the vox but in general good stuff. Like I said my bands website is supposedly supposed to be up any day now so I can post some clips. My singer is effin' terrible though so you will have to get past that.

                • W00t! Thanks for the kind words Sordid1! Yea, wish he could do melodic stuff, we're still working on that... I would love to help him out there with background vocals but I am too busy doing the "5-finger tap dance" to do so in the songs. I wanna get another guitarist in with me too that can keep up with me rhymically but it's hard to find good help around here. There's lots of guitarists around here, but not many "good" ones unfortunately.



                  I will definately check out your band when the site is up! Thanks again for checking out the band and good luck with yours dewd!

                    Des Moines actually has a decent amount of good metal guitarist but finding ones that aren't conceded pricks is hard to do. Too bad you don't live closer or we could hookup since we have fairly similar styles going on and obviously we both have exquisite taste in gear

                    • Anyone use an effects processor to switch channels on the XXX? I'm interested in this amp but would like 1 button patch changes. G Major?

                        In order for it to work you would first have to buy one of these:







                        From www.fjamods.com



                        Get one of those, damn near any processor, and a midi pedal and you're set.

                          • Hey everyone whats up? Saw this post and glad 2 see all of you tearing it up with your XXX's! I gotta agree with you guys there is so much you can do with this amp. I'm still tweaking it to find the right sound that i'm looking for. So far my amp is all stock, would like to change out the 6L6's and put in some EL34's. Now my question to you guys, any of you have some killer DEATH METAL SETTINGS that i could try? So far all the settings i have used make my amp sound bright to mid range. I'm using the the crunch channel and my dampening switch is set to LOOSE. OH yeah I use the ISP Decimator, it kicks major ass, takes out all the useless feedback that my amp used to have. Thanks!

                            • With the master at 5 and the channel volume at 6 on the crunch channel, my amp is DEAD silent. It's nuts.



                              However, I'm having major problems with my amp right now. I don't know what happened, but it just sounds very harsh to my ears right now. It's pissing me off. I'm gonna go do some preamp tube swapping and see if I can come up with something good.

                              • I have the G3 DVD which Im sure many of you have as well. On this DVD Satriani is playing through three Triple XXX heads. It sounds like they stock. To me the sound was good but a little bright and brittle at times IMO. As the concert progressed it seemed I found myself liking his tone more and more. I went to Sam ash and plugged into a Triple XXX and I immediately loved it! Also they were having a salke as always and the head was going for like $875 + tax!

                                Now thats a good head for the buck!
