I own the 5150 combo and have played a triple x and an ultra on many occasions (a friend of mine has an ultra combo and a guitar store I frequent the most has a tripl x combo). I personally preferred the voicing of the 5150 over both the ultra and the triple x. I like a lot of mids in my tone and the 5150 is a mid-machine. Also, the ultra and triple x had a dark tone to my ears. Mind you, the ultra and triple x are awesome amps with a lot of tonal versatility, but my personal preferrences leaned more towards the 5150.

Also, considering the affordability of these amps, I think that these two are your better choices. Just try them out whenever you get a chance and critique them with your own ears.
