You probably did. I think I sold my JSX for $700CAD and this one comes in at $580CAD. They're not desireable like a 5150. There's one for $600CAD in Ottawa right now. :shrug:

I liked it more than a 5150, once you swapped the tubes for KT77's. The cleans and crunch were way better, even if Ultra was useless.

I did put KT77's in mine, but I would take a 5150 first.

I have to add that this amp is criminally underrated. The 5150 gets a lot of love here, and deservingly so; but this amp shout deff be looked into. A great, independent clean channel that doesnt break up and 2 other gain channels that offer tones from classic rock to death metal.

A JSX is one of those amps I've been curious about for a while. Heard a few of them years back but now they're relatively plentiful on the used market I'd be interested in seeing what I could wrangle out of them.

Ehhh the clean channel does break up. My first LP studio got that to happen. The best channel is taken from a classic 50 (?) So there's that.

I think for the price it would be an amp I would be willing to try.

Worst case scenario you end up selling it for what you paid for it.

Especially considering many of the amps that get discussed her are closer to 1000 or beyond in terms of price.
