After about two months of searching for the right amp for me I finally found it. A peavey 5150 halfstack locally for a steal of a price. Only 800!!!! Snatched it up with the quickness.

My review of the amp can be summed up in one word. DAAAAAAMN. I knew these things were good but not to the extent of this one. The low end on this thing even with the stock sheffields is amazing. It has a really nice "lamb of god" tone even through my sg with the 57 pickups, which are "lacking". Needless to say the 57's are getting the boot and hopefully being replaced with emgs. Anywho enough of me babling and to the pron!

Its so friggin big!

Missing a few knobs but i can cope, chicken heads are like 2 bucks

my sg with its new life partner : )


will post clips of it in a couple hours

That's far to pretty of a guitar to put EMG's in. Just get some hot covered passives.

Anyways, sweet amp! But why did the mid knob, out of all the knobs there, have to be missing?

You tell him not to put Emg's in but you recommend him Invader's and Dimebucker's?

If you don't want EMG's but want actives, check out the Seymour Duncan Livewire or Blackout.

A JB and Jazz would go well with that amp too.

They're good, but check out the livewire's. They're pretty much an active version of a JB/Jazz set and the chrome would look sexy on your guitar. They're what dave mustaine has on all his guitars. This guys review of them pretty much sums it up:

"So, if you want the clarity and punch of active pickups but don't want the sterility and compression of EMGs, than look no further than these pups. Seymour just gave all those passive-pickup tone junkies the best of both worlds."

Hey congratulations on the amp

I have to agree with others though, get those EMG's out! I have 81/85's in my schecter hellraiser and they just suck the tone from my Laney
