NAMM '11 - Peavey Triple XXX II Demo
January 19, 2011
PG's Charles Saufley is On Location at the 2011 NAMM Show where he visits the Peavey Amplifiers room. In this segment, we get to see and hear from their new Triple XXX head. The Triple XXX II delivers tones ranging from the Peavey Classic® 50 to vintage British to the modern Triple XXX. The versatile and comprehensive control section supplies a Master Volume pot and independent Volume knobs for each of the three channels (Clean, Rhythm and Lead). Tone shaping is accomplished through passive controls for Bass, Mid and Treble on the Clean channel, while the Rhythm and Lead channels utilize active Low, Mid and High controls. The pristine Triple XXX II Clean channel is the perfect foundation for layering outboard effects. The high-gain Rhythm and Lead channels both include a Noise Gate and exclusive FAT switches that add extra heft, while the master section features our patented tone-sculpting tools, Resonance and Presence, which adjust upper- and lower-end response and damping factor. To top it off, the power amp can use EL34 or 6L6GC output tubes, further expanding the tonal options.
