Friends With The Enemy guitarist Stu Petrie is a hard-working Australian axeman known for his sweet punk rock licks. As a punk musician, Stu strives for that perfection of distorted and clear sound. Read on to see why he the 120 Watt Peavey JSX amp head is what he needs to get the job done.
What one piece of equipment do you use to obtain your signature sound?
Stu: A 120 Watt Peavey JSX amp head.
What about it makes it so important to you?
Stu: The diverse sounds you can get out of this amp is crazy. You can get just about any genre of guitar sound out of it, and with a little bit of style!
What are the major pros and cons?
Stu: Well, it looks cool, and sounds even better. It’s a super reliable Peavey amp, which I’ve always loved using. The only thing bad about this amp is you can only fit so many on your speaker box. [laughs]
How long have you used this piece of equipment and would you ever change it?
Stu: I bought this amp 6 years ago, and i still haven’t heard anything better. It gives me what i want, when i want and has never let me down. I don’t think I’ll ever change amps, unless it’s getting a new JSX. [laughs]
Any final thoughts or comments on the gear?
Stu: Throw your Marshalls, Mesas and Kranks in the bin and grab one of these, you wont be disappointed!
