^ yes and no. the amps were the VT series, then peavey said they wanted to make him an amp. so they took the vt series, made a few changes and named it the 5150 series. although EVH's were heavily modded, or just gutted and filled with soldano parts. when eddies contract with peavey expired he left and took the 5150 name with him, since it is his copyright. so peavey just changed the name to 6505. because it was like their 65th anniversary in 2005.

Who wants camera recorded 5150 II clips??? Well here they are... It sounds so muddy and bassy, but I swear thats just the camera(and also that it was very near the port on the cab)! It sounds very good live, really punchy and quite bright.

Settings are the same in both clips, just I had the gain at 5.5 in the first clip, and bumped it up to 7 in the second one. Volume is at about 0.6, basically slightly more that as low as it can go, which is very low.

Low- 7.5
Mids- 1.5
High- 3
Resonance- 6.5
Prescence- 6.5.

These are the best settings I can get with my setup. And before any of ya'll nubs attack me for mids at 1.5, THIS AMP IS MIDDY AS HELL!!! It sounds TERRIBLE and HONKY with the mids above 2 for me, since I'm also using a very middy pickup, and basswood is pretty middy as well. As for the treble, any higher than 3, and it gets ice picky for me.

Without any further ado...

Yeah, there doesnt sound like theres any high end in the clips, but there is in real life for sure. Maybe I shoudl rerecord with some added treble just to balance it out.

Edit: Ok, that worked pretty well. Heres a clip. It sounds better recorded this way.

It was their 40th Anniversery in 05' I though. 1965-2005.

Hi electrik,

I've got a request ... rather a question... this was the original question that no one answered because UGFluffy kept making a big deal that my english wasn't good enough ...
Anyway, I was looking at the 6505 combo and with its closed back, was wondering how I would connect an attenuator between the amp and the amp's speakers? Is connecting to a cab with an attenuator in between, the only way to play at lower volumes ? I have a valveking 112 with the amp's out to a Weber attenuator and the attenuator's out to the combo's speaker.

thanks !

^ i don't think the combo is closed back. last time i checked it was open. anyway if it is closed back you could unscrew the back plate and then just use the attunater. but if the amp is soldered to the speakers you won't be able to use an attunater. but i remember the combo's being open back...

Yes, it is closed-back. please look at this link.

http://peavey.com/products/browse.c...F+212+Combo.cfm

Also, it says so in their description ...
Two SheffieldŽ 1200 12" speakers in a closed-back cabinet

Anyway, I think you have answered the question, "unscrew the back and connect". I just wanted to know how everyone's using them if they are in fact using them with an attenuator.

ok, i found some pics of the back. the closed part is screwed on so it can just be unscrewed. it it's set up with a speaker out with a speaker cable, ect, you can use an attunater.
