i hear these amps get some shit because they are poor man amps.
at the moment i use a avt150h which i've just bought.
i think it would be much better.
or should i wait for a marshall MA50h?
i play post hardcore music. i'd love an orange but thats more of a dream right now.
cheers

Go to a store and try it out. I have one and I love it, it's an awesome metal / rock amp.

And, remember, even if someone says that it's a poor man's Peavey or whatever, essentially Peavey is a poor man's Mesa and similiar... and just because an amp reads Marshall on the front doesn't make it a big mans, big time amp.

I always failed to see how a Peavey is a poor man's Mesa, the 6505 is dimension better than the Messy Boogie Rectifiers. (opinions) Just because the mesa is twice as expensive doesn't mean that it's better in any way.

I didn't actually mean that Peavey somehow imitates any Mesas. I just meant that whatever you use, there's always an amp that's more expensive and fancier.

If you care about sound quality and tone, you'll ignore what "everyone" says, what it says on the front of the amp, how much it costs new or second hand, and just use your EARS.

A 6262 is almost an exact replica of a 5150II/6505+ so you tell me if it'll be good for hardcore or not.

As long as you look after it, it'll perform admirably. I would however say that if you treat your gear badly or with little respect you probably want to spend more money on something that isn't manufactured in the Far East.

Not anymore. There was an issue with the early models (pre April 2008) but the problem has been fixed on later models, which you are almost certainly going to get if you order one now, 2 years after the fix.

I went with a friend to buy a brand new bugera 6262. He had it for about 3 weeks before it just shut down and stopped working. He returned it and bought a 5150. They are NOT exact replicas. The 5150 has a much more open sound, the bugera sounds like there is a carpet over your cabinet.

You're right they're not exact. The bugeras are better Well, in my opinion they are.
I'm not sure where you're getting this carpet sound from.. From my experience the bugera sounded much more darker to my ears. More umph so to speak. I guess if you're only after teh brutalz then the 5150 should be ok. My thinking is why buy the peavey when you can get better for a fraction of the price.

Same here, no carpet sound. The tone is focused on the lower end of the spectrum(PUNCH), and the 5150 is more mids. I perfer my bugera's tone, feels tighter, more defined. Also the cleans are better (not really my thing though)!

If your friends was carpety and died after 3 weeks, it prolly had bad tubes.

Logically, darker tone = carpet tone since a darker tone means less treble.

Precisely the reason why I don't like Orange amps - not enough treble in the crunch sound.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

I played peavey 6505+ 112 and bugera 6262 212 side by side a couple days ago. From what people have been saying on here I expected the bugera to be amazing, the high mids were shrill and fizzy and the low end had no balls. The 6505 was awesome, the gain structure is just ridiculous, you can easily hit pinch harmonics with the gain on 2, everything was crystal clear, nice low end, the same reason why so many bands use them. I'll most likely sell my valveking 212 and buy one

Compare the two heads with one cabinet. Otherwise, the comparison is rather useless.

well personally i realy like my bugera and before i got it i tried my cousins 6505+ because i had heard that the 6262 sounds similar and i was surprised to find that the bugera did sound quite similar but not the same and that it had a bit more low end like a couple of other people have said and it is quite versitile. im pretty sure you could get a good heavy rock tone out of the crunch channel aswell and the cleans seem alot deeper and smoother than the 6505 personaly i like boath though they are just different. and comparson wise i use a peavey cab with the same sheffields in it as my cousin.
