How are these amps?I love peavey amps Im saving up for a XXX but I was wondering would the 1x12 6505 be worth the extra money?

Peavey is great stuff. I'd suggest playing each of them as they are very different from each other.

Hm I'm not sure but I'd say around having the volume at around 1/3 would be ear shattering loud. Hope that helps.

1x12 ??

you mean the 6505+
it depends what you play, the XXX has a much more brighter lead channel than the 6505+

bugeras sound good but their quality is severely lacking. as stated, the XXX is much brighter and sharper, but a little harsh for my tastes. the 6505 has a slightly flabbier, but much beefier sound. its all preference. go try em out and youtube ur ass off. if u look around u can get a good deal. the 5150 combo (same EXACT thing) sell for around $500 on ebay, and the 6505 for around $600-700 (only cause its newer).

I play stuff like metallica,maiden,COB,Killswitch engage,slayer,Augest burns red,Slipknot,Dope,Dokken,EVH,priest,stuff like that.Im just looking for a amp thats under 800 is a combo and has plenty of gain for me to play the things I want to play,
So heavy metal-to death metal type tones

can you go used?
do you care for cleans?
do you gig?
if you ad 50 more bux you can afford a used Single Rectifier or a Mark III..

i play a few of those bands myself. metallica is kinda hard to get cause of the gritty distortion, but iv read that od pedals help this. it does slipknot and killswitch very well, and well, van halen designed it so it does VH also.

if he gets the mesa then he wont have money for a cab...

ah, didnt realize they came in combos. they are voiced pretty differently. i have trouble dialing in tones from bands that use mesas. go try em somewhere.

single recto heads can sell for as little as 500-600. perfectly enough left over for a decent cheap avatar cab.
and ill +1 that mark III. combos sell for about 800-1000 from what i've seen

rectoverb price is lowered to 900usd new, i think.

Get the Triple......

On the Ultra channel you can coach out more of the mesa/modern voicings and on the Crunch channel you can coach out those classic rock marshall type of tones.

whats the difference between the 6505 112 and the 212. obviously the 212 has two speakers, but is there a noticeable sound difference?
#24
there is no 6505 112. the 6505+ comes in a 112 in october. 212 has slightly more bass and is SLIGHTLY louder. the differences between the + and regular are all over the place. + has less gain but better cleans.

Sure that would work. But if you find a nice deal on a 6505 2x12 combo don't pass it up cause it's really an amazing amp.
