this has tunred into the ben pwning thread.

and there is a difference in the gain. n00blet. even when i crank my XXX the gain still needed to be there. the amp's tone is based more in the pre-amp anyway. just like the 5150.

I know it still has to be there, but when its saturated (for me its around 2((i think it should be 2, as there are no numbers))) a hole boat load of gain on top of it will not change the sound.

Is Van Halen classic rock? Is the 5150 Van Halens signature amp? Its not too hard to figure out.

I also talked to the amp tech for the band Blindside about the amp. (Simon, the guitarist of Blindside was there as well and hes used the 5150 since like 1994) Anyways, he also mentioned that the 6505+/5150II is a "little more laid back".



well are the cleans worth the lack of gain over the 6505?? (in the 6505+) like are they good enough to sacrifice the gain. (i use gain at 10) ALWAYS!!!!!!!!!

i play Melodic Death, Grindcore, Power metal...so yeha i use cleans ALOT less than distortion..and lots of it

so which would be the better value..the extra 60 or so bucks for the + or a pedal for the cleans>?

Well since you don't use your cleans alot and ALWAYS!!!!!!!!! have your gain at 10, I wouldn't put more money into an amp that had better cleans and less gain. Grab a chorus pedal for the cleans and call it a day.

not too bad, actually (judging by the 6505+ i tried). It's the cleans and blues tones that aren't all that great, in my opinion.

I was looking at the 6505 ... and its got a closed back right? How does one route the amp's output to the combo's speakers using an attenuator ? Or do I have to have a cab and send the output of the amp to the attenuator and attenuator to cab ?

thanks

Umm, you need some help dude.

If you go half stack. You need to go Head -- > Attn ---> cab.

PWNED = ME -There IS a combo, and i knew nothing about it. MASCOT PWNED ME.

There is no reason to dime your gain. EVER!!. Especially on a amp with this much gain. I bet it sounds terrible. Seriouly, i love gain. I keep my tone saturated, but there a point where you are just hiding behind your gain.

The 6505 doesnt come in a combo. Its head only. So you need a cab, or a combo with power amp in. And if you need a attn, then its Head -- >attn -- >cab.


You need the help bro.
