Christmas Catalog for Musicians Friend states that 5150 amps are limited quantities!!! We can stop dreaming that wolfgangs will go but 5150's will stay......here comes the JSX!!!

Bummer, but I think that the JSX might be a more versatile amp anyway.

Does anyone here have a JSX?

I saw a pic of the JSX in GW and it does look like a bad ass mofo. If one of you guys end up purchasing one, I'd really love to hear what you think of it.

That's just killer. I saw the noise gate switch on there and just smiled with glee. It looks like they did a great job of creating a kick ass amp.

Have you ever seen that video of Joe demonstrating it at NAMM?

Really cool!

No I haven't seen that one guys, but he did perform live on 93.3 WMMR about two or three months ago, and he must have been playing thru one of these babies. His tone was ungodly. I've never heard him sound so raw before, and it was just fuckin killer. He ripped from the first note to the end of the song.

Re: JSX Jan \'04 Namm

You know when you get kind of complacent about an artist and then you see him play ... Suddenly it is just as exciting as the first time you heard them. That is what this clip did for me. Many thanks Axe.

Re: JSX Ebay win

That sounds like a hell of a deal....I have heard of some people quoting $999 and MF wants $1200.

I understand the jsx it's like a modified triplex, is that right??
I have no chance to try this amp, but there is one thing that bothers me, is that I allways loved satch tone, bought lots of gear trying to get there, but the old satch tone.
I don't know if it's me or I'm crazy but the tone is different now, actullay I went to G3 last week, and find that out, but you can here it in live dvd of g3 too.
Don't get me wrong, still has a great tone, but I like it more the old one, I hope he is not doing this for money or some endorsement deal.
Anyway looks like an amazing amp, maybe more in the dual rectifier zone??

I dunno, i tried it out and thought it was ok. If you like the XXX, youll like it. It definitely cant do what a 5150 can. The clean is really good on thie jsx, but the distortion could use more edge i think. Anyway that is just my personal taste, and the 5150 sound is kind of a love or hate tone...

:scratch: yeah I've kinda noticed that, too, about the 5150's sound. It seems like either everybody hates it or everybody loves it, depending on who you talk to.
I'd like to get a Triple X and a JSX, but don't have the money right now.
