I'm getting a 6505+ tomorrow and the volume on the lead channel is messed up. It still produces sound even when the knob is at 0. I'm assuming it's the volume pot and was wondering how hard it was to change one out?

No, it's pretty normal. My Valveking still produces sound at 0 with the gain past a certain threshold.

Given that the 6505+ is a br00tz amp, it's not surprising that it would do the same.

I'm fairly sure my Orange does this on the dirty channel as well, if you have the gain maxed out and the volume completely down you still get signal coming through, as sound obviously.

yeah my 6505+ does it too, until you put a noise gate on it, then you just get your usual hum

its a shame, they should come with a built in noise gate, and a tubescreamer, and a graphic eq. That would be the ultimate metal amp

Just add $320 to your amp budget, and you'll be set.

Do you mean hiss, or that you can hear your guitar while at zero?

You should have no noise at zero if not playing. However, you will hear your guitar at zero. I have a 6505 head. I can barely play in my temp apartment on zero (still pretty loud guitar), but there is no other noise.

I know, but think of all the forum sheep that would buy it with all the stuff already built in, 'cus like it has all the things EVERY high gain amp needs to sound anywhere near playable, without those items they are pure trash

It hisses but you can also hear the guitar while it's at zero

Also I have an ISP Decimator... what is the proper way to run that pedal on this amp? Put in in front or run it threw the effects loop?

Put it in front, after modulation and before and additional distortion/od. My 6505 is definitely clearly audible on zero on the lead channel. my Boss noise suppressor works great
