Well I've heard that the plus has less distortion, but still a lot. Apparently the plus has better cleans, which still aren't good, but nobody buys a 6505 for the cleans anyways. I'd get the regular if I were you.

ebay a 5150, I personally think the 6505s suck compared to a 5150

They're the EXACT same amp. Same exact components.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Dude it sounds different.... It cant be the "exact" same Or they wouldnt have spend the money to change the name... theres obviously different qualities about the 6505 then the 5150

The 6505 is only called the 6505 because it was introduced on the 40th Anniversary of the company. It came out in 2005, which is 40 years later from the debut year of Peavey. 1965-2005 = 6505. Same amp, just a special name for it.

im personally going for the + version

while there appears to be "Less gain", the amp still has more than you will ever need and the clean channel is slightly better
its also a lot more tweakable given that each channel has seperate controls!

5150/6505 = SAME AMP
the only reason i personally think people say they sound different is because most of the old 5150s have been well broken in and set up with different tubes etc...
Top lel.

id get the 6505, its cheaper and lets face it, if you looking at a 6505 your not exactly looking for pristine fenderesque cleans.

The cleanest I'd be looking for is something similar to Call of Ktulu, if that. I always thought stuff sounded a bit better with a nice crunch to it, if I'm not needing the full on distortion.

Get whichever is more expensive. That way you know it's going to be better.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

Are the cleans on a 6505 unuseable? I'm considering the upcoming 1 x 12 combo, but I don't want to completely abandon playing clean tones. Should I look elsewhere?

Right. Just like Honda S2000's are worth 30K and I still beat them on the highway on a daily basis on the way to work. Money doesn't always equal quality, mate. Mmk?

there more than usable, there pretty good for a highgain head. most people jump on the 6505/5150 clean hating bandwagon, but my 5150 has more than "usable" cleans.

Unfortunately, the name didn't belong to them. It belongs to Eddie Van Halen. When he broke from Peavey to create his own brand 'EVH', he took the name 5150 with him - so Peavey had to come with something else.

If I were trying to decide on $150 between a 5 and a 5+, I'd be looking for a used 5150 with a recent tube job and a decent cab. If you need a stack that is. There is a new 6505 112 combo coming out that I hear will be in $600 area.

i swear it sounds different tho, cause I have a 5150 but my my bass players brother has a 6505+ and we play all the time.

It may be the tubes or something.

No the 6505+ is the 5150 II, and the 6505 is the 5150.

I'm looking for a head. My friend is offering me $1400 for my Marshall 2466 Head. I have a 425A Cabinet, I just need a good solid head, and I don't feel like buying Marshall again. Speaking of, how do you think a 6505 or a 5150 would sound through a 425A?
