Hey

Im gonna be saving for one of the above amps.
My question is can you add a master volume to the amp or do you just have to live with it being loud?

Cheers

I'm pretty sure the 'Post' control on the 6505+ will work similarly to a master volume.

Afaik it basicly controls the power amp gain, which is similar to the job of a master volume (except there's one for each channel).

Any amp that gets distortion at low volumes has a master volume...

Peavey just calls the master "post" because it's the power-amp volume.


Nothing new, my VTM60 from like '87 has those labels. Works fine for me.

The 'pre' and 'post' controls on the 6505+ refer to gain as opposed to volume really. To get distortion at low volumes with the 6505 you'd turn the 'pre' (Preamp gain) up while keeping the 'post' (Power amp gain) low. This would get distortion but not power amp tube saturation. The more you turn up the post the louder it would get and, theoretically, the more power amp saturation.

Note: I'm not an expert on 6505's. I believe this to be correct, could someone please confirm?

Both amps stock tubes will be fine until ther are worn (year or two). At that point, some JJ's would be nice.

Both if these Amos like v30 loaded cabs. Your choice of 2x12 or 4x12.
