Very tasty! Been considering a Vader 2x12 with a Peavey 6505 for a while now. Don't have the funds for either, but it's always fun.

Hope it rocks as hard as I think it does!

Oh it does. The Vader has bass response like no other cabinet I have ever heard before. It gives the 6505 the bass that it really lacks with some other cabinets. Its no where on the level of say, a Recto, but its definitely a very thick sound now

Brent Hinds = Freakin awesome

SG's might not weight as much as a LP, but they have the high end bite that the LP's just don't get. Not to mention they don't break your back either.

I love SG's

I actually plan on getting another SG Standard in white to contrast this guitar. I'm debating about throwing EMG's in the second one or another duncan distortion
#12
I'd love a '61 Reissue with a P90 in the bridge and a '59 in the neck...

This w/ a p90 would be hot as hell

Or gold EMG's

I like the smaller pickguard on the 61's a lot better than the huge modern one

stay away from vadercabs they are super thin when it comes to recording em


other then that SIIIICK gear


I've actually had no problem getting a nice thick tone out of them. Once I get my profile up and running here I'll show you what I'm talking about.

Its probably because I'm a mids lover. I never scoop them because I love the punchy sound they have.

It really is a great sounding setup IMO so long as you dial in the amp to work with the strengths of the cab

ever mic a mesa ? check my profile all of it is done witha mesa 4x12


I just did, I love your tones

Probably the reason I can get by w/ a vader cab is that the bassist in my band always has a very full sound and tends to fill up the low end that I might be lacking. The other guitarist in my band plays an Engl Fireball through a Marshall Cab that has some decent low end too.

I'm glad to hear that you don't scoop your mids. There's some huge hate around here for scooped mids.

Nice rig, btw.

Thanks!

I found that playing live I really hate to scoop anything because you just get lost in the mix too easily. It gives the guitar a nice punchy tone and really lets it come alive. People are just plain able to hear guitar mids much better than highs (which are just plain annoying sometimes) and lows, which get caught up with the bass and bass drum

I agree. Cutting through is such a pain when you scoop your mids.

Slightly off topic, but I'm a bit curious.

You said that the Vader cab gave you the lower end punch that the 6505 was lacking. Does it still retain clarity with said punch, or rather, is the tone still fairly tight? I figure the cab's got a pretty decent bass response, so I'm hoping it wouldn't get too muddy.

Just trying to get a few tonal things sorted for information's sake.

Actually... scooping is the act of cutting mids...

it doesn't say how much.

The scooped tone has its place... and if you have a 2nd guitarist... having a scoop sound provides a good contrast.

Just don't go -20db on your mids.

Its extremely tight, especially with more mids involved. A very punchy tone IMO. The cabinet is not muddy by any stretch of the word. I highly recommend it.

A 6505 with a 2x15 Vader cab on the way? Sick man, that much bass could kill babies. Its good to see a new guy who isn't a noob and isn't asking us about MG's for the billionth time.

Lol thanks a lot. I can imagine you probably get that around here a lot, "omg i played a Line 6 Spider III and it is the BEST AMP EV3RR!!!111"

I used to be like that until I played a tube amp. Then everything changed.

And yes, I ordered the 2x15 last week. Should hopefully be here within a few weeks as they make them to order.

Sweet, thanks for the response! At the moment, I'm running a fairly muddy amp (Randall RG50TC), but I know that even if I get a cab and it doesn't benefit me right now, it will when I upgrade.

Looks like my cab decision just got easier. Sorry for jacking the thread, though; just got really interested.

Still drooling over the rig, though.

Totally agree with you there - the first time the people of UG told me to scoop my mids, I did, and then I thought they must be telling me to turn them up, it sounded so great with higher mids. Then they taught me how to EQ properly and I realised that scooped mids do sound pretty good, but IMO I like mids at around 12 o clock and treble/bass 3-4 o clock. So kind of partially scooped.
#39
thanks for all the responses guys!

1. yes i do play metal, lots of it, I'm really into the whole Gojira thing right now

2. Its not a phase 90, its a MXR Distortion III (looks really similar though)

3. I don't really use the Dist III or the TS9 anymore. I used to boost the 6505 w/ the TS9 but once I changed out the bridge pup in my SG and I EQ'd the amp properly, I just found that it was unneeded.

The Dist III I use primarily to boost the clean channel on my Orange Rocker 30 Head. I'll post a pic of that here in a sec
