Out of interest, how do these two amps compare? I've never managed to find clips of both amps to listen to, but from what I've read, the 3+ is a bit more open and dynamic? On the other hand, I've also read that the 3+ doesn't tighten up well under high gain palm muting, but I don't know how much truth there is in that. Of course, Fish = Rust in Peace and 3+ = Countdown to Extinction. Fish wins. Seriously, though, how do these two compare? Also - anyone ever tried a Masotti X3M?
