6505+=less gain, separate eq, better cleans
6505=more gain, single eq, not so good cleans

To be completely honest, I'd take the 6505, then get a Chorus to fix up the cleans. It's a win win situation, kinda.

This. To clarify, though the difference in gain between the two is notable especially on the rhythm channel, both have much more gain than most people know what to do with.

If you use cleans/low gain, then I would suggest the 6505+ solely for the separate eq.

This.


With that being said, the cleans on the 6505+ still aren't exactly good.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

The 6505+ also has a bias pot, but it doesn't have much range.

Another notable difference is that the 6505+ sounds slightly smoother, whereas the 6505 is more 'raw' and 'in your face' sounding.

I have the 6505+ and love it. The cleans aren't that great, as it breaks up pretty easily, but if you're really easy on your guitar's volume and the pre-gain on the amp, you can get a decent clean tone if you get a good reverb/chorus with it.

I use an EHX Cathedral Reverb with mine and it works pretty good.

^I think that's basically a 6505 with EL34s. Maybe I'm wrong.

6505 has more low mids. 6505+ has more high mids. The 6505 has more snarl and it's darker sounding.

6505+ has the added preamp tube too.

6505+112 combo has above average cleans imo for a low cost metal amp

I agree. Though $600 isn't exactly what most people call low cost.

I agree. Though $600 ~$400 is actually an amazing price for a new amp if you used coupons in combination with end-of-the-month specials. isn't exactly what most people call low cost.
*fixed*

How'd you get one for $400?
