so the title is pretty much self explanatory..i am planning on getting a new amp. i like the distortion on the 6505. You guys think it will be loud enough to gig with ? i don't really have the $1000 to get the 212. but i might have to save up..

and if you have any suggestions for an amp with sweet distortion and sweet cleans help me out. i will have about $700 to spend..but i guess if i have to save up $1000 i will take those suggestions too. thanks guys !

Yep, I used it in a 500 seat theater just fine. If you have a cab though, I would save up the $899 and get the EVH 5150 III mini. Fender cleans and a lead channel to die for.

Dude, just saw you have a JSX head on a Marshall cab...that doesn't cut it? If you want a new amp def opt for the 5150 III.

Most places have decent enough PA systems to compensate for that extra bit. Joe Satriani used to play a Mic'd Marshall 15 watt with a tube screamer. He did at one show at least, they had to put glow tape around it to mark it off as people kept tripping over it.

The only time any 6505 isn't loud enough is if the entire audience (well, the band really because the audience should be listening to the PA if you've set up everything properly) is profoundly deaf or the amp is broken.

It is loud enough below the halfway mark to drown-out the average drummer. Does that answer your question?

i'm talking about without it being mic'd......and from my experience it seems like some amps when you turn them out louder the distortion falls apart and isn't as saturated...

yeah the 50w 5150 III is pretty new. I think it's only been out a few months. Some of the videos on the tube are ridiculous. seems hard to beat for $999 or so.

That usually applies to amps with SS poweramps. An amp with a tube poweramp should only become more powerful as it's turned up.

Oh FFS. It will drown out a drummer with ease - therefore it's loud enough.

Why is this thread still going?

Sorry for the bump, but I've a question regarding the amp: is it normal that I need to crank the Post to volumes like 6/7, and the pre to 7/8 to hear myself over the drums in the rehearsal room? Today I used the amp for the first time in a rehearsal with the band (I used a Peavey Bandit with the band before) and I really thought that the knob at 4/5 would do just fine on keeping up with the drums. Is it possible that either the speaker or some valve went kaboom?

Could you guys imagine how loud the 6505+ would be if it went to 11?

Yeah, something's wrong if you need it turned up that high. Mine at 4 will just about peel paint off the walls/break windows. Though, the stock speaker is not as efficient as some of the upgrades people usually do -- so it's possible you need to turn it up higher because of that. Also, if you're still running the stock Ruby power tubes, those might be absolute garbage (mine were). When I installed JJ 6L6s it was like I had just turned the volume up by 1 whole number on the dial.
