The Triple XXX II all-tube head is now available 01-Mar-12
Peavey tells us that the new Triple XXX II all-tube guitar amplifier head is packed with high gain, high power and exclusive tone-shaping features that take guitar players from crystal-clear cleans to roaring overdrive and everything between. They say that the Triple XXX II amplifier specializes in modern high gain and versatility, with a three-channel attack that puts extreme tonal flexibility at players' fingertips. Here's more details in Peavey's own words...
Cranking 120 watts into 16, 8 or 4 ohms with four 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 (or 6L6GC) power tubes, the Triple XXX II is as powerful as it is versatile.
The Triple XXX II's two footswitchable high-gain channels, Rhythm and Lead, utilize active Bass, Mid and Treble tone controls that allow players to boost or cut the frequencies 12 dB rather than simply cut like a passive control. A carefully selected mid-boost voicing on the Rhythm and Lead channels allows the amp to cut through a full-band mix even when using scooped-mid tones, while exclusive Fat switches add extra heft to each channel. Peavey's adjustable Noise Gate hushes high-gain noise on the Rhythm and Lead channels, so players can crank as loud as they want.
The pristine, footswitchable Triple XXX II Clean channel is the perfect foundation for layering outboard effects. With traditional Bass, Mid and Treble tone controls and tons of available headroom, the Clean channel maintains its clarity at high volumes without breaking up--the ideal setup for using stomp-box pedals and effects without coloration or distortion.
The Triple XXX II features a comprehensive control section with independent Volume controls on each of the three channels (Clean, Rhythm and Lead), Gain controls on Rhythm and Lead, and a global Master Volume control. The master section also features Resonance and Presence, Peavey's exclusive tone-sculpting tools that adjust upper- and lower-end response by altering the power amp's damping factor. Additional features include Line Out with Level control, a footswitchable Effects Loop with Send and Return controls, and a power amp that can use EL34 or 6L6GC tubes. Features
