Peavey XXX v.s. Line 6 Flexatone II

I'm debating on which one to get. I don't know a lot of Death Metal bands that use Peavey products besides Suffocation but their new tone sucks compared to the early days when they used Ampegs. Anyway, I know a lot of Death Metal bands that use Line 6 products like Disgorge, Vehemence, Sleep Terror, etc. But I have not played off the Line 6 Flexatone II in awhile. Is it discontinued??? I saw one on ebay for $300. I currently use the Peavey XXL with a BBE 482i Sonic Maximizer but either one of these amps would be better then my XXL. anyone have any opinions on these two amps and which one is better? I know the XXX is all tube and the Flexatone is s/s so that puts the XXX in an advantage so far. But I don't think the XXX will get that Death Metal sound I'd want it too.

That's why Peavey has the 5150/6505.

the triple xxx can nail alot of different sounds. at times it seems slightly sterile in my opinion but it has lots of gain, tight low end, and it's pretty versatile.

the XXX can do Death Metal no problem, its a pretty articulate amp.

Its miles ahead of any shitty line 6 product.

actually, higher end Line 6 stuff isnt as terrible as their lower stuff. Still not my amps of choice, but they have some decent products out there.

I think this sample proves that Line 6 Flexatone II is way better then the Peavey XXL. What are you tuned to in this recording too by the way? and how was it recorded? If I tune to D standard does the Line 6 Flexatone II have enough gain and crunch for me? I'd also have a BBE 482i Sonic Maximizer
hooked up to it

Take it from the guy who is looking into XXX's for a while, 90% of the time you need an EQ to boost the mids, that will get her humming!
