Hey, I recently purchased a Peavey 6505+ Halfstack that I absolutely LOVE. I'm playing BYD, All That Remains, Lamb of God, that kinda stuff. Pretty much a wide variety of metal. So the distortion on it is wonderful, I have no issue with that, BUT.

I really wish I had a better clean channel on it. Assuming my budget is roughly 400 dollars, could you suggest me something I could get to help my clean channel out? Th tone I'm looking for in the clean department would be like a nice ambient circa survive tone.

My guitar is a Schecter C-1 classic, running through a Boss Ns-2 than to the amp.

reverb or chorus.

other than that, you may just need to get another amp.

Knowing America and it's crazy prices you can probably find yourself a used Carvin Legacy or X100b. They have fantastic cleans.

It's probably a stupid suggestion, but like throwing a line 6 pod in there, and running one of its clean sounds out of the clean channel wouldn't help at all would it?

this. a little reverb and chorus almost always makes a clean tone better. and mess with the EQ for awhile, sometimes its just hard to find the right eq setting on certain amps.

i think your better off getting an amp for cleans like the above people said. and you can a/b them when running dirty for a fat sound.

A compresser, reverb and maybe a pickup that is designed for good cleans. My friend has a behringer compresser and a holy grail running through his 6505 and it has great cleans. He also retubed it with JJ tubes and uses a cab with 4 Warehouse Veteran 10s in it.

oh yeah, i forgot to mention that I'm already running it through my Alesis 3630 compressor, which is a recent purchase. the 6505+ doesn't have any reverb on it, i realized, so that might actually help a lot, especially with the sound I'm looking for.
#14
Yeah. The EHX Holy Grail is good if you're looking for a cheaper 'verb that'll get the job done. Also, maybe a retube? Are the tubes in it stock or has it been retubed?

EHX Knockout EQ. It makes cleans awesomeley gooo.d

It was retubed very recently. I bought it used, but he retubed it just before i bought it, I don't know what he put in it, but I do know the guy I bought it from knew his friggen tone. I'll look into the holy grail.
#17
Okay, well if the previous owner knew his stuff, he probably retubed it well. Though I'd still look and see whats in it.
