I have recently purchased a Fender Twin Reverb
Actually it's a 6505
and here is a clip of it on the clean channel through my Dual EMG 85 guitar.

EDIT: my stream won't work, so it's all direct download links:

You'll have to turn it up because I couldn't crank the clean because my family is in bed. But let me assure you, even at this low volume the clean sounds pretty good and it really shines when you turn it up and let it open up a bit (WARNING: clean playing is bad. This is just straight up the guitar and my ISP Decimator dual tracked)


Also....

DID SOMEONE SAY THE CLEANS ON THE PEAVEY 6505 SUCK?

WELL THEY WERE WRONG.

LET ME INTRODUCE TO YOU THE NEWEST ADDITION TO MY FAMILY OF MUSICAL GEAR: MY SECONDHAND PEAVEY 6505.

THINK THAT'S A GLARE? THINK AGAIN. IT'S GOD HIMSELF COMING DOWN TO BLESS THIS AMP FOR BEING SO AWESOME AND KEEPING THAT FEBREEZE AROUND.



"oh man pretty sweet amp" MR ALLIGATOR SAYS.

WELL MR. ALLIGATOR IS RIGHT AND IF YOU DISAGREE YOU CAN JUST LEAVE.


I HEARD YOU PEOPLE LIKE KSE SO HERE IS THIS AMP DUAL TRACKED TO A BACKING TRACK OF MY CURSE I FOUND ON YOUTUBE

EDIT: stream isn't working, so here is a direct download link:

Thanks man!

I'm loving this. First time I've had a halfstack or really high quality gear so I'm more than satisfied.

HNAD! I'm jealous.

People who say the 6505 has no cleans are the same people who say EMGs are all sterile and lifeless - in a nutshell, people who can't/don't take the time to dial anything in.

HNAD!

Yeah, the 6505 does have cleans, I never said it didn't. But my Laney has better cleans to my use, for sure.

I think the general opinion is that the cleans are very lacking compared to other amps. But then again, you can say that a Fender Twin doesn't do heavy, thrash/metalcore-ish tones very well at all. It's a 2-way street(though someone could argue that one could simply throw a pedal in front of the Twin to play metal).

Either way, I thought the 6505 was pretty awesome for thrash and other heavy tones, and I don't think it was really made to compete with a Fender Twin. HNAD!

That is the general consensus but I don't think anyone seriously considers it a competitor with a Twin. That was the joke part. TS was only saying that despite all the criticism, the 6505+ can get some cleaner tones.

Granted this is a 112 with a pedal of some sort

Who needs cleans on a 6505 anyway?

Good question lol

Came for the Fender, stayed for the gator. HNAD!

The gator provides all of the tone. The amp and cab are just for looks.
