  • can you tell me the differences in the sound of the 101b and classic? i dont understand the term open distortion. they say less compressed but the x already seems kind of raw with the high mids through v30s

        This has been covered A LOT on here. The XTC 101b does seem very compressed to me, and I wouldn't describe it as raw. The classic is more open and less compressed, slightly more aggressive and vintage sounding. Trying it out is your best bet. I MUCH prefer the classic, and I've owned both.

                • First time posting on the boards. Couldn't resist this one even though few will probably make it this far into the thread...

                  1) Marshall AVT50 1X12
                  2) Crate GFX65 (unreliable crap, half ass decent distortion)
                  3) Peavey Special 212 (harsh dry sounding crap)
                  4) Peavey Bandit (very generic)
                  5) Fender Champion 110 (horrible)

                  I can see that my list probably won't be taken very seriously. A lot of people rag on the AVT series but I really like this amp. I think my USA Wolfgang Special helps though. It sounds wicked though nearly anything.

                  Of course you can see that I've never owned a full tube setup and most of the amps I've owned are low to mid range SS deals.

                            The best amp I've ever played myself was the Mesa F-50, but if I was ever going to give and A+ to something I've heard, it would have to be Joey Santiago's cranked JCM 800 during a Pixies concert I saw a while ago. When he got on stage he just strummed a huge open G and it was the greatest sound I ever heard.
