Whenever I record something and play it back I always think it sounds utterly crap. Whether I am actually that crap or whether the recording quality (10 mic into cheap dell integrated soundcard) has something to do with it, I'm always horrified at my playing and the tone.

But your both your tone and playing sounded nice. Keep it up

lol.

Anybody know why the II/+ has only one input and the regular has two? I'm curious. Wait heh maybe that's why it has less gain. With a standard 5150/6505 you always plug into the "high gain" plug, lol.

Nah, thats really not the reason why.

I'm pretty sure it's because they ran out of room on the amp's faceplate.

Does a Peavey XXX Combo have equal amounts of gain as a 5150/6505 combo ?

Thanks

Hmm, I've only played the XXX once, but it was about on the same level. The 6505/5150 probably has a bit more, because it's rediculous the amount of gain it has, but I'm sure it makes no difference. The XXX is much brighter as well. Dereks got one and can tell you more.

XXX has an insane amount of gain. i'd fear for my testies if the gain went above 3 o'clock. and i have it just a notch over 12 o'clock to be safe. if i'm feeling sassy i'll push it up to 2 o'clock.

danger's my middle name baby.

and yeah it's pretty bright. but i use mohogany bodied and a basswood guitar, so it kinda levels out. still on the brighter side though. not nearly as bright as everybody makes it out to be though.

No, the XXX is as bright as everyone makes it out to be. It could just be my swamp ash/alder guitar i suppose, but its bright.

^ Cool! That's exactly what I was thinking ... I have a basswood body guitar and by using an equalizer, I was hoping to level out the brightness.

The 5150 seems to be too big and powerful for a bedroom practise. I just bought an attenuator that handles 50Watts for my Valveking and if I get a XXX which is 40Watts, I could reuse that attenuator.

Basically, my reasoning is ... if an amp is bright, you can get it to be darker using eq and all that, but the other way round would be hard !

well the peavey focus a lot on pre amp gain. so an attunater isn't really nessiary.

you might also want to rethink that ns-2. i own one and it just sits in the box in my closet. isp decimator gets the work hours in.

Oh ! So, an attenuator on my valveking is also useless ? No wonder nothing happens even if I crank the volume up all the way. just garbage. but at lower volumes I can still find saturation by using the compressor and bad monkey. Man you are a real eye-opener. Thanks !

yeah, after reading lot of rave reviews about the ISP, I am finally gonna buy it soon.

So gpderek09 according to what you are saying, I can keep the master volume low to bedroom levels on the 5150 or XXX and still get saturation and all that for mind-blowing metal sounds ? No need for an attenuator ?

indeed.

granted, on the XXX, the higher the master volume, the brigher it gets. the higher channel volume its darker.

thats for the 120 watt combo and head though. the others only have one volume i think.

Edit your posts, dont double post.

And you do need to crank it a little bit to get the super sweet metal tones. But the 40 watter will be different then my half stack, so it shouldnt be to loud when you hit the secksyness.

Yea attenuators are pretty pointless on Peavey. Like it's been said it's mainly the preamp that's saturated with gain, and preamp tubes don't really need to be "cranked" The 6505+ sounded great and it was on like 1/2, not even on 1 yet. My JSX seems to sound better at low volumes than it does at high though lol.
