you would be better off getting a used 6505 combo or head because it wont be that much cheaper, the new ones are suppost to be made in Asia as an attempt to compete with Bugera so unlikely they will be any more reliable than the bugeras.

Also there isnt much sonic difference between 65w and 120w for some reason.

gonna be crappier. I'd rather buy a used 5150 head and a used 112 mesa cab with at laest a decent speaker. More portable IMO, and it has a better sound from the cab, and it is of better build quality. New ones will be made in china i think. but then again, it is a peavey, so iono. Does it balance out?? Meh it's gonna be much cheaper. Looking to take a look at the 6505+ combo.
