Is the Peavey XXL head any good?


I loved the XXL, and I was sorry to see it go from Peavey’s lineup. In my opinion, Peavey’s TransTube solid-state distortion is the best solid-state distortion in the business, and the XXL was perfect for metal and hard rock. If you’ve got one, hang onto it!

I would really like to see Peavey bring the XXL or something like it back into production. They currently do not make a powerful, affordable, solid-state guitar amp head. While I love the 6505 Series, they are a bit beyond the reach of many guitar players. The TransTube XXL was just the thing for up-and-coming metal guitarists.
