Like ass. It sounded like ass.
It had very little gain, so I was forced into using my Mt-2 for distortion which made it sound very muddy and it lacked quality. I dont know if you were planning on using a distortion pedal with this amp already but distortion pedals with tube amps is a bad way to go.
If I were you I would get a 5150 combo or something.

i dont nessasarily want to d-grade its just i heard about these tube stealth amps and they look mean. the triple x is excellent but it doesnt have the tone capabilities of the likes of messa, the triple rectifier rules.
so what would you say the stealth 100 tube head sounds like? a h&k warp 7?
i wish i could here it damn. if the gain wasnt to hot why didnt you use a boss ds-1 'canibalcorps' or a tube screamer like satch with his marshall header rig that way you would have increased your gain but still reatained tone instead of slamming all theat mt disortion fuzz on it which would make it go very muddy and messy.

I used the mt-2 on the clean channel. I tried some tube screamers and stuff on it and it didn't help too much. Still not enough gain for what I like to play.
And trading in the XXX for a b-52 tube head is just about the dumbest thing you could do. Fuck I would have killed for a XXX when I had my b-52.
I would just stay with your XXX. If you dont like it then you can just send it to me and I'll keep it.

looks can be deceiving..... if you want the tone capabilities of a recto, then buy a recto... despite what some would say, the triple x is not the poor mans recto, it's nothing like the rectos. completely different amps. i don't even think they look much alike...
hell, a 5150 looks more like a soldano than a triple x looks like a recto. and you don't see people saying the 5150 is a poor mans slo 100.... because they arent very much alike.

well, the warp 7 has loads more gain.... but it's s.s.
the b52 stealth is just lacking..... in alot of areas imo....

you shouldnt be using a dist/o.d. pedal on a high gain tube amp. it just makes it pointless.
but the stealth is no high gain amp, although they claim it to be pretty mean.
but it's no clean amp. so pedals will still sound like ass.
besides most o.d. over o.d. setups make lots of noise and undesired effects.
if you're going to drop alot of cash on an amp, drop it on an amp that's worth it.

Acually alot of people do call they 5150 the poor man's Soldano. Mainly Because eddie uses Soldano's before the 5150.

i've never heard that before, and didn't eddie use marshall? i don't think the 5150 is anything like the soldano..... but then again the 5150 is 1/3 of the price....

i'm no death metal guy, but it lacked gain for just about anything "heavy" especially with those horrid b52 cabs....
i'd suggest looking into the rectos if you gots money, if need be you can sell your xxx if your short on cash.....
but no, i don't think the b52 would be a wise choice....

I might have recorded with the b-52, but I was using a Mt-2 with it so youre only going to hear what the amp sounds like with a Mt-2.

Overall, theres better amps out there that you can get.

it's not..... they make it look like that so nu metal kids & people new to the amp market will be like "that looks mean as fuck... i bet it's so metal, besides, it's tube and tubes are best i heard... and i can afford it... so i'll take it without playing it. because i'm stupid and my mom beats me with her vibrator."
i swear.....
the fallen angel is a serious amp though... not to cheap, but very mesa-ish ballsy high gain... although you'd get more versitility out of a recto imo.
