I'm interested in buying a tube amp. Combo, not just the head. Below 100 watts.

Problem is I don't know too much about what there is for combo amps. I see Peavey has the 6505+ in a 60 watt combo out for like 600$. That's alot of 6s. Though I've saw some places sell it for 1200......what the hell is up with that? Why the price jump for the same amp?

Also, how much volume difference would there be between (just an example) a 60 watt 6505+ versus the 120 version?

uh about double the volume.

A 60 Watt version you might be able to turn up to maybe 3 and the volume would be good for bedroom levels. The 120W version the volume on maybe 1 or half (.5) would net you the same volume.

FALSE. Do not listen to that. They are not twice as loud. Yes, louder, but not by that much. I would say twice the wattage would be a 20% increase in loudness? Just a rough estimate.

There's a lot of good combos out there. A lot depends on what you play. The 6505s tend to be gain monsters. I see Randall has a combo variant of their T2 head which looks pretty cool. What kind of sound are you into?

Mostly metal but I like to play a bit of everything that has an electric guitar in it.

The 6505 is a great amp, as long as you're not too picky about the clean channel. It's workable but nothing great. I'd suggest trying one if you can. Depending on your budget you could always go used.

Crazy you guys say that, because I can't even turn my Peavey 30W up past 1 on a dirty channel without pissing everybody off.

Vypr is modeling is it not?

I have a modeling amp. If I turn it up past 1 on a dirty channel it pisses everyone off. That might also because the channel volume is all the way up...............and it has shit tone.

not directed at Rouge Hermit, just clarifying what he said, doubling the wattage of and amp actually only gives approx 3dB increase in volume. headroom is another thing though...
