I have a 6505 1 '12 and the sound i got out of it I have gotten so far harsh.I want a bit of a warmer distorted tone...can you recommend some settings to help me achieve this?
Oh jesus...

there is a settings thread but you are helpless.... the mods will probably lock this, hopefully they don't so we can get you straightened out and stop making ******ed threads.

What are your settings at currently? What type of music are you trying to play?

You are the one breaking the rules.

Gain on 5- bass on 7 mid on 5 high on 6 presence to taste resonance to taste. Tweak from there.

And go **** yourself you little ******* ****

Hope that helps.

Warmer distorted tone? What sorts of tones/styles are you trying to achieve? If you're after a classic power amp distortion you definitely picked the wrong amp for the job. Maybe a Classic 30/50 is more suited for you?

You aren't going to make a 6505 sound like a JCM800... EVER. PERIOD. FINAL.

You just bought THE METALEST OF METAL AMPS, and wonder why it's so in your face?

And no, before you ask, the Fullbore Pedal WILL NOT benefit this amp!!!

Imagine the part of the ballsack where occasionally old poo sticks to the pubes and hardens, and you then have to pull out, but as an amp. That's an MG.

Greatest quote of all time?

I think so...
Assuming you are stuck with your 6505+112 for a while and like it otherwise I would try the settings that some already gave you.....oh right, R45VT.

But then again - we have no idea what kind of music you play
Then I would experiment with some JJ 12AX7 OR 12AT7 preamp tubes.
Next I would consider getting a different speaker in there. Maybe an Eminence Swamp Thang or WGS Vet30.
Then I would maybe put a blanket over the amp.
Then I would play with some pedals like chorus, delay, reverb
If all of that fails, I get rid of that amp and get something else.

PS: I really like the 6505+112.

That's not really helping. Settings Threads are banned. And R45VT is a consistent poster/helper here.
You guys are much nicer than I am

I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.
I reported it last night.

This guy always gives half information and has a ton of breads about a "wArm" sounding amp, yet talks about getting a 10band and a cube, with a pedals like the fullbore for distortion.

Everyone likes different settings, not every setting will work with every genre of music, settings also depends on speakers.... Ther is no 1 settings for everyone.

That's why threads like these are pointless.

The guy needs help, and I don't mind throwing suggestions out as he clearly isn't happy with his sound. A 6505 is not a JCM900....

Resonanceat 6, presence between 4 and 6....

Maybe giv yourself a mid spike TS. Turn your mods to 8.

And the Peaveys are biased very cold.... Not exactly a warm amp....
