I don't see what the problem would be with your existing amp. The 6505+112 actually pulls off some nice clean stuff.



Also, check out this guys 6505+ head/Mesa 412 NAD and check out his clean clip.

Now as far as your Budget. I think you'll be lucky to get $400 for your 6505+112. Is that your budget?

And here is my obligatory Peavey Vypyr 60 recommendation. Get a used Vypyr 60 for around $300.



Don't worry, 'that guy' I'll back you up, I actually really quite like the cleans on my 6505+. Sure they're not the warmest sounding in the world but they're still pretty dam good when dialled in right.

If you give it a warmer bias the cleans are actually pretty decent, I quite like the cleans on my 5150, it's not that they are anything special but they certaintly aren't bad either. I can't remember what cleans sounded like with a cold bias, probably as they do in the video above.

That's the thing with the 6505+, the range that the bias adjustment allows for is quite cold even when maxed out apparently. That said though, i'm yet to retube mine so I haven't fiddled with the bias at all. There is always the bias mod though, so that's something for us all to keep in mind.

What is "folk punk"? Not making fun, curious that is all.

I should have clarified, the bias mod is what I was talking about, pretty sure they are unable to be biased without a mod, unless something changed from the 5150/6505. The mod is litterally a pot and 2 wires, a 2 min job if you know what you're doing.

Very early Against me! is a good, more mainstream artist to look at if you are actually curious.

The guitar sound is a very subtile tube breakup, and I achieve that with a 6505+ and a TC electronics hall of fame.

I prefer using Floging Molly as an example. Besides The lead singer of AM wants to be a chick now .

classic 30? with some form of OD pedal?

it may sound like an odd combination but a while ago i saw a guy pull a pretty decent punk tone out of classic 30 with an OD. may not be best, but an idea/

thrash, i have no idea, never tried to play thrash in thrash in more of a vintage voiced amp.

also the fender hot rod deluxes gain channel really useless and not worth bothering. but the cleans aren't bad. its not a bad pedal platform.

____________


also if you were to get something as a pedal platform, you could start with one pedal for more of 'A' tone and another OD for more for a 'B' tone, and have nice cleans.
