8" speaker? Solid state? Playing metal, you say? Nah, brotha, you won't be able to even hear your amp. But as others have said, if that's all you can do, put the amp up high and point it at both...

Definitely. And I hope people didn't mistake my original post as claiming such. Could you make a 6505 sound like a Fender Twin? Well, somebody probably could. But at that point it would no longer...

1. 5751 or ECC803 in V1. Can be NOS or JJ -- but JJs have worked VERY well for me. Both are slightly lower in gain than a standard 12ax7; the 5751 moreso -- so it will help your cleans a bit more...

Where do you have the preamp gain set on your amp? If you're running a boatload of gain on your amp already, you probably won't hear as much of a difference with the Ts-9, and you'll get more noise....

Interesting. I might have to try this with my 6505+. Just turn the preamp gain way down and the post gain up, right? God help me if I accidentally bump the preamp gain knob...:)

The NS-2 run through the loop, especially in the x-pattern should eliminate ALL of the noise you're hearing. X-pattern means that you are gating the input signal (noise from your pickups and any...

Do you think between my TS-9, MXR M77, MXR 10-band, and HM-2 I could get some good low to mid-gain sounds? ( I know what my HM-2 would do to it :D ).

The point of any proper high gain amp is to melt people's faces off, instead of making them think a bee flew into their ear.
