Hey whats up guys?

(took this from my post in the metal gear thread)


so im selling my line 6 spider 3 hd150 finally!
YES!! haha.

and ive been looking at a few amps, i play alot of everything because i like to play everything or i have to play something or what not. but the point is im looking for a peavey, the models i have found are the peavey 6505, 5150, and the xxx. i have 4 guitars all different tunings and sounds for different styles so i want to keep it versatile but right now im also playing with a band that plays in drop a (dont chide me for the low tuning its their choice). so i need to know if the xxx can handle drop a and play in standard and drop d tuning nicely as well.

the drop a tuning is that nasty stuff like bands like impending doom or what not, very simple.
then i standard and d for my own stuff like southern rock/metal, metal, thrash, yaddayadda yadda.

so i need to know should i go xxx, or the other peaveys. thanks

What is your budget?



well its around 800, id rather not spend 800 on the head because i have to buy a cab after that as well, but i the highest price i found was the 6505+ was 800.

usd by the way

i've herd the 6505/5150 recommended for 7 string guitars which are commonly played in drop A or lower so they can handle the lower tuning

the XXX i have played and it does standard and drop D well but i'm not sure about all the way down to A though i'm sure it could handle it

i might also suggest getting a bass cab to better handle the low end when tuned so low

Go used, save you some money.
Check your local craigslist, and ebay if you feel lucky.

only drop d myself, heard it with drop c
it is a very good amp and with the right cab i'm sure it will handle the lows, like i said it would be wise to look into getting a bass cab, a lot of 7/8/baritone guitarists use bass cabs for the low end clarity

alright cool, thanks for your help, and with a bass cab would i have to wire anything differently?

uhh... no, just make sure they match impedance and cab wattage is > head wattage (2x is common)
after that it's just a speaker cable between them
