    THIS AMP ROCKS!!!....I can't get a BAD sound from this thing. Now before you go on and start to complain that you can't get a good sound out of this, let me clue you in on something: I play various types of music, from blues, to metal....from jazz to Hendrix / Pantera / Oasis / Ozzy / B.B. King / George Benson....etc. And I use a slew of different effects pedals....and no matter which one I use (metal / fuzz / octave / chorus / phaser / flanger / pitch shifter / ring modulator / compressor / wah) I tell you this amp reproduces it perfectly. I use the clean channel for glassy, pristine jazz chords, and country twang, and it's never failed to give me JUST what I wanted. Then there's the crunch channel, it's perfect for chords, some fuzzy, Hendrixian runs, and the more compressed, tightly focused bass heavy rythyms. Finally there's the Ultra channel, and it's just what the Dr. ordered when it comes time to "fly" with your fingers. I can do Yngvwie, Satriani, Vai, Hammett, Mustaine etc. If you can think it up, you can find the sound in this amp. And it's not so much the PRICE that grabs me, it's the facvt that unlike my friend down the road from me, who has to invest sometimes as much as $100.00 for tubes and the servicing of them, THIS amp is TUBELESS! It's all Solid State, uinless you plan on dropping this thinkg into the shark tank at your local zoo, or in your bathtub, then it should work fine gig after gig, after gig, after gig....etc. My suggestion?...GET ONE NOW BEFORE YOU CAN'T FIND ONE ANYMORE AND THEY RAISE THE PRICE TO SOME ASTRONOMICAL RANGE!!!

    I bought this amp because I did not have the time to save up and get anything better (I bought this a week before my band's first show) and bought it w/ a very cheap peavey cab. This head can get very loud but with my cab it is very limited in sound. I am about to trade in my current cab for a line6 412. The Clean sounds pretty good (prefer the modern setting) because of the pick-ups on my Ibanez RG. Now for the distortion In my mind it has alot of crunch, is alittle weak, but has ALOT of unbareable feedback. I HAD to buy a suppressor and it cut down alot on the feedback (The pickups on my guitar also cut down on alot of the feedback, fooling around w/ other guitars has showed me that w/out good pickups you will not be able to play this amp). The Modern is a very digital sound but I use it for very light practice. The Ultra setting is the only way I am able to keep up w/ my friend's setup (Line 6 HD147 and the Spider II cab). The Ultra has a very dirty sound that is decent for breakdowns. But it is also dirty playing harmonic notes. The effect setting does not even work on my head but I have no need for it anyway. This review is based on the head paired w/ the cab I currently use, and even when I played it on my friends line 6 II cab the ultra and modern distortion sounded remarkably better and cleaner. If you are short on cash and want this amp you will NEED to experiment with the cabs you use for the tone you want. You will also have to consider that you'll need the sound suppressor and a guitar with good pickups. If you can afford waiting for more money you should probably look to upgrade to a XXX or something better.

    Versitility on a budget

    By Butch Frable

    from Clarks Summit, PA

    I love Peavey Amps, I got my Supreme XL about a year ago, and I am buying a second one. I DON'T use effects pedals, and need an amp that has clean and dirty sounds without them. The Clean channel has 3 different voices that range from a very sterile clean, to a crisp Fender style sparkle. The Dirty side has three voices from a JCM style British tone, to uber distorted nu-metal tones, I personally like the British, and Modern modes, that allow a more edgy tone, where the Ultra mode becomes muddy, more suited to old school scooped out death metal tones. You need good pickups, or a real quick volume knob hand with this amp, because it will feedback, at high gain levels. Dampening in the power amp section allows for a personal preference setting of your bottom, which this amp has a TON of... Overall the Supreme XL is a great head for the money, and can hold its own with most of the $1000 heads out there...

    Budget Bang!

    This is a pretty sweet amp for the money. It can't compete with the $2000 heads, but for it price range, I haven't played anything as good.

    I say it is quite a nifty head. The clean has a nice warm and full sound to it, even when its set on the vintage mode. The overdrive is nice and ballsy even for the most gain freaks, but one thing I don't like about the head is when set on the ULTRA mode, it sounds too bitey. Other than that, it's a good amp for a tight budget.

    I bought this head almost a year ago, along with a XXX cab. I couldn't afford another head at the time so i bought it (stupid at the time) anyway i love my supreme all the same, in fact i came to love it, adn i came to hate it. first off this babys loud, really loud which is good. the second channel distortion, sounds like crap, serisouly, i use my distortion pedal instead. the effects loop doesnt work well i cant use half my presets on my effects processor i just get feedback galore. otehr then that its definently worth it for the price, belive me, a man on a budget. but if you can go big!

    Best Rock Amp for the DOLLAR!

    By Anonymous

    from Undisclosed

    This amp is one of the best amps I have ever owned!I've been playing for 15 years and I have owned a lot of different amps, but this amp is by far the BEST AMP I have ever owned.The Lead/Rhyhtm channels are extremely versatile, there are tones of options to get the sound your looking for. This is the only amp I have ever owned where you can get a Van Halen sound and a Skynyrd sound from the same amp. If you looking for an amp to play Heavy Metal or Rock, this amp is the best, PERIOD!

    this thing rocks!!!

    By Rick B

    from Massachusettd

    I purchased this after using , and abusing a Marshall twin cab. This amp is heavy as you need to play modern rock for shure , and the clean channel is just that-smooth and clean . I play a Fender strat through it and love it . Would recommend playing around with the sound a bit before hitting the stage . I'm sure you'll find a sound right for you ..

    I play mostly Metal/metalcore/hardcore/Country/misc and this head works for it all. You're able to get your own kind of sound with pretty basic settings; although, I'm not to keen on that modern setting.
