for the bv to get near those tones you need a decent eq in the loop and a decent drive up front. it can get in the ball park but it wont be exact. with proper eqing im sure you can squeeze satch tones out of it.

Out of what the 6505/6505+. The only thing keeping me from getting the Peavey is the clean's, I have heard all over there decent but not that great at the same time.

Man... The cleans aren't that bad on the 6505. You can change V1 to a lower gain tube to improve the cleans. 12AT7.

If you are after the bands you listed I would rather see you get a 6505/+ combo.

The BV is not bad but it's distortion channel would be too bright even with JJs to reach their sound.

You can try the BV but keep an open mind and also try the 6505. You can't always believe everything you read on the Internet; 6505+ has better cleans than the plain model. Also they don't need to be biased so they might be better if you aren't technical.

Well I do have my Vyper 15w I could use for my satch stuff. To answer your question though I would have to say passable clean's( PWD,BFVM etc) with good distortion which the 6505+ would do well I assume.

in this situation the 6505 is probably the better choice.
i took a quick look on your local craigslist the closest thing i could find was a 5150 combo in decent shape over in bloomington. it seems a bit far + he wants 600 for it which is a bit high IMO you may be able to get him down to 500. in this situation a new 6505 from GC would be cheaper.

not sure of your budget but there is also this

Make a new amp thread with all the details. Budget sounds you are after etc.

Most people will either tell you a Vypyr or a 6505+. The plus is what Parkway drive uses if I recall correctly.

So I just bought me a bv300. I'm doing some minor upgrades to it. First off I bought some blue bulbs to put in it to replace the original bulbs. Next on my list is to replace the fabric that the previous owner covered the head in. I'm up for suggestions on what u guys think I should do to it. I'm also looking for a 4x12 cabinet the would support a 300w head like this. The other guitarist in my band has a cut and I think it sounds good through it. Hit me up with some suggestions!

Post a pic of it or it's an MG

What's your budget for a cab? A few users on here just got an Orange PPC412 from MF for 600 to 650. Its a 400w cab. I think that deal was over....

I'm trying to post pics but it keeps saying that it's to large. And my price range for a cab is what ever I can get out of my fender mustang v I have for sale. I have it posted on Craigslist for $500 but all the reply I get for it are scams. So I'm thinking about selling it to a pawn shop and see if they will give me $400 for it.

Sell it on Craig's list. You will get more money for it.

CL took a big dive. Buyers market for sure. I've got 2 amps for sale up right now. About to lower the price on one. Seems like only spam and the occasional tattoo artist looking to trade the amp for tats. Lame. 99% scammers only response.

yea. it did take a dive. i am always buying if i see the right thing, some low buck things do sell on CL, but around here nobody has cash to buy anything. everybody wants to trade anything they have got for an amp with toooobs. .

i posted a dozen ads a few nights ago, and i had 16 spam emails within five minutes, my cell kept going off constantly. the ads were for random stuff and car parts, two have sold, but still have ten that have been on for months.

After I bought my MKV i posted one of my BV's up for sale, it sat for a month and then sold for 50 less then list, and I always post with wiggle room. 50 more then the minimum I was willing to go.

Takes time. You can sell for a loss quickly but I'd rather wait especially as I not hurting for money.

It just sucks currently as it used to be a way to make a little money on the side.

Hey Guys! Joining the BV Community here! I've got a BV150-HR Red Voodoo.
Recorded this: http://soundcloud.com/tyler-gibbs-3/amagani-preview from it today =)

Looking at getting some new tubes for it though. I hear JJ's are the spot from what i read here =)

BTW, what is the difference between the Red 120 and the Blue 120? Other then color and the whole "sammy hagar" thing ofcourse.
