I have yet to hear the first person say 6505 aren't good for metal. It all depends on what kind of metal you want to play, though.

Since I am a metalcore/hardcore guy myself, the 6505 is perfect, but...

If I were into death metal, I'd get an ENGL
for British voiced metal, a Laney
for shred a Peavey JSX,...

You get the idea

I believe the TS was saying that people compare the 6260 to the 6505, but say the 6260 isn't good enough for metal...and he wants to know why because the 6505 is perfect for metal.

I've played the 6260 and I would say its good enough to do metal fairly easily...I would be more worried about the reliability.

The 6260 is made for metal man so whoever told you it wasn't for metal is full of it. That's what it does best. I don't own one but I tried one out before I bought my 333xl. I decided on the 333xl because it sounded tighter and better and I actually preferred it for metal. I own a peavey 6505 which the 6260 is supposed to sound like. But honestly it didn't sound exactly like it. It was similar but it sounded like a cheap version.. which I guess it is. I prefer my peavey 6505 over the 333xl but I wouldn't prefer the 6260 over the 333xl. The 6260 was really thin to me.

Could be because even though its a clone of a 6505 it doesnt sound like a 6505. So if you are into the way it sounds can wont have anything but that sound its not the amp for you. But yes it has plenty enough gain on tap to handle metal.

Because you said people compare the 6260 to the 5150.... If you didn't know the 5150 and 6505 are the same amp. Peavey had to quit calling it 5150 because EVH left the company so they renamed it 6505... So you can call it either one but the 6260 was designed to copy the 6505. Which is the same as the 5150. The 6505+ is the 51502
