    I lowered the bass and bumped up the treble to taste. It really is a great clean channel!

    Edit: One other thing I like about it is that, by default, the clean works great when you coil-tap because it is so thick. I only lower the bass and raise the treble when I’m trying to get chimey cleans on a full humbucker.

    I almost didn't believe it, but I haven't bought a new cab in well over a decade. They've gotten really damn expensive! I'll continue my nearly life long habit of never buying cabs new. But it's crazy because I've gotten Peavey 6505 cabs new for nothing before. I got one as like a doorbuster deal from GC for like $150 once. I think they mislabeled the sign, like $150 with purchase of a head, but I took advantage of that shit for sure.

    That's pretty impressive if they are only making 50-100 units for this year. over 10% ownership on this forum alone haha.

    Hopefully Sweetwater didn’t get pushed back. I was told 2-3 weeks and I preordered last week.

    If I were peavey I’d move heaven and earth to get these things built seeing that there is pent up demand.

    Maybe the big box stores are getting delays but there are Invectives out there that can be bought right now brand new.

    There are a bunch listed on Reverb right now. Couple used (one comes with cab and is local pickup only), and a few used.

    At least 1 in Utah (seems like they have multiple ads)
    2 in New York
    6 (?!) at musicstorelive website

    Like @Womb raider said, maybe the big box stores are getting delays, but they're shipping to smaller dealers who don't have the browser/preorder traffic?

    Are we talking about the same company that told dealers to fly the “Made in USA” flag at the same time they were surprising stores with “Product of China”-stamped boxes and crates? Because that was my experience doing business with Peavey. Granted, it was a reasonable alternative to ESP telling dealers throughout California to drive to Hollywood if they wanted to pick up the stock of LTDs they’d ordered.

    Point being, I don’t see any company depriving their large accounts of available product just because it rightfully belongs to a waiting smaller account.

    I haven't been here in a while, but it's hilarious that people are STILL making excuses for this fucking amp. Replace Peavey with Kiesel and the company is boycotted, but cause your boy Bulb is associated, lets just give them 2 years to sort out production issues.

    Anyone who buys this amp after reading this thread or seeing the shit that's gone on is a fool tbh.

    I was really interested in this amp since the cleans on my 6505 are lackluster, switching sucks, I love the idea of the pedal power outlets in the amp, etc, but this is a failed experiment in my eyes, and I'll just stick with the 6505. Ridiculous.

    These are all James Brown designed circuits...the triple X was a George Lynch amp and he happened to jump ship to Randall in the middle...Satriani also had input on the XXX prior to developing the JSX. It really started with VTM, Classic 30/50 and Butcher, then the Ultra (+), then 5150 etc...the tone stacks are pretty similar, bar the active EQ on the XXX/3120/JSX/XXX2...pretty apples to apples
