Im really in love with the sound of the EVH 5150 III right now, its got the 3 main things im looking for in my amp, clarity, tons of gain, and huge but yet tight low end. I normally play it on channel 2 with the gain near maxed and all eq knobs between 11:00-2:00, or channel 3 with gain between 9:30-11:00 and again the eq between 11:00-2:00. Honestly the only downs sides i see too the EVH 5150 III is the clean channel, its size, and the made in mexico factor. As much as i do like the EVH 5150III i'd like to look into a few other options, just so i dont regret not trying other amps. One in particular that has always caught my eye is the Peavey JSX, ive heard great things about it and it seems to fit my description pretty well. Only downside ive heard is it has a active eq witch can be pretty sensitive, which has me scared because thats why im getting rid of my triple rectifier. One thing im not looking to do is having to boost my amp which is another reason im droping the rectifier (i just cant get my sound without it, dont ask why i dont want to boost, i just dont, yes i know im weird). So does anyone have any experience with the JSX? Also if you have any other amps i should look into i'd love to hear it.
