Used Peavey 6505 combo.


Schecterist 11-05-2012 10:40 AM

@jeleopard In my country(Thailand) Peavey 6505 is rare item. Can you recommend other amp instead ?

miio 11-05-2012 10:51 AM

I'll give my vote for Blackstar HT-5R combo or head&cab.

Robbgnarly 11-05-2012 10:51 AM

Jet City JCA50h and a 2x12 cab, but it might be out of your budget.

Peavey Vypyr tube 60 1x12 combo would be a good choice also.

Most people here are going to have no clue what amps are readily available in Thailand and what the cost of each may be, so you could help us out by telling us whats available within your budget, then we can advise from the selection :)

Go for a Blackstar HT-5 or HT-20 (used), or a Hughes & Kettner Tubemeister 5 or 18 (used).

Schecterist 11-05-2012 11:08 AM

My choice
1.Peavey vypyr 30watt (Sold out)
2.Peavey vypyr 15watt
3.Line 6 no idea for serie
4.Blackstar HT-5R (Listen sound from youtube it ok)

or other please recommend me (I want amp around 15-30watt with distrotion play in my room 555+)

If that's what you want to do, you might be better off with some decent headphones and something like:

Schecterist 11-05-2012 11:46 AM

Final i have 2 choice

peavey vypyr 15 vs line 6 spider IV 15 for metal(as i lay dying , killswitch engage , trivium)

review please

zefs 11-05-2012 11:47 AM

Vypyrs are nice, get one of those.

Robbgnarly 11-05-2012 11:52 AM

Can you wait untill they restock the vypyr 30? It will handle metal much better because of the 12" speaker vs the 8" speaker that is in the 15 watt.

Schecterist 11-05-2012 12:00 PM

@Robbgnarly Good recommend Thank you ^^

Schecterist 11-05-2012 12:01 PM

@zefs Thank you ^^

Wesbanez 11-05-2012 12:05 PM

+1 for the 30w Vypyr, I had one as a practice amp at Uni, very nice for bedroom metal tones :)

No problem, I just hate to see you buy something that in 3-4 months you are tired of and want something new. ;)
The 30 watt vypyr sould have you covered for a while.

yousef213 11-05-2012 01:04 PM

whatever you do don't get a spider. They suck. (I know from personal experience)

jeleopard 11-05-2012 01:43 PM

The 30Watt Vypyr is a great choice. Effects and stompbox effects and great tone.

Don't even think about the Line 6 Spider. It sounds all fuzzy and fake and disgusting.

Schecterist 11-05-2012 09:21 PM

Thank you everyone

Very helpful recommend


Austin174 11-05-2012 09:52 PM

+1 for the Vyper 30w as well.
