I want to make mine look like this:



Basically just remove the black board. But I'm not sure what's all involved in removing/acquiring/mounting the emblems to the grill.

It's 4 philips screws on either side of the board. Pull it off and then pull the cage off. It's just screws and nuts to hold the badges on like that.

Edit: it might take a trip to the hardware store to get black screws and nuts. The badges are just screwed into the wood.

Here's mine. It's not too hard to do. To mount the emblems to the front grill I would get some bolts that fit in the holes on the emblem, and just use nuts to attach them. It depends on whether you want to remove the blackboard completely, or put a design on it.

Ah, that makes a lot of sense. I wasn't sure what they were mounted on, but nuts is the easy/obvious solution.



I'll try not to tear her up, for you.

Keep in mind if you want to remove the board you need to cut two pieces of wood on the edges and attach the screen to them so you have something for the outside screws to hold onto. You can see that in the picture you posted.

I took out my board in about 10 mins. Man those UK plugs are huge, they should get with the times.

I did this to my 5150 years ago, unscrewed all the stuff, pulled it out and then placed it back in the amp, you will likely need washers to rescrew the grill back onto the amp but mine just sits in there under its own pressure, it won't come out unless I pull it out, as for the Logo (in my case the 5150 number logo) I got a small piece of wood placed at the back of the grill and screwed the logo onto that.

So you're going for the Valveking look? Where did you find that picture, the bench and plastic easter egg had me rollin'.




I kid I kid. I have the same type of screen on my Splawn only my logo is held on with black twist ties

Offworld, when did you score that beast? You had a JSX before right? That's my dream amp right there! Still having touched a regular 6505 though, only the plus.

I've only had it for like a day, haha. I haven't done (and probably won't do) a NAD or anything.

@Bigbazz can you just pull the grill straight out from the front? And pop it back in?

It's a tight fit so I'd imagine you could just pull it out and pop it in if you don't want the mod to be permanent, but I think I would rather screw it back on.

With my amp yeah, it will stay in on its own but you hook it with the end of a guitar lead(for example), pull gently and it will come right out, and pop back in just as easily. I was gonna screw it back in properly, but it wasn't really necessary so I didn't bother.

Just make sure to attach the logo plate BEHIND the metal grill. I think it looks terrible with them on top of the grill on the outside.

Why have the logo at all? No logo is way more metal.

Or better yet, get the Splawn logo on there. Everyone will be like
"If you're looking for me,
you better check under the sea,
because that's where you'll find me..."

x2. I see people do that all the time with 5150's and it kills it for me.

Congrats on the 6505 dude, beast amp. How do you like it?

consider a used mesa V30 cab, that's a big part of a lot of the tones you want (tbdm and the like)

Lets get some pictures and a review up in this thread.

Did you find V1 for your 803? The order is not left to right...

I tried it behind briefly and didn't like it, it looks a lot better in person/on stage than it does in a picture, with the 5150 logo on the front of the grill.
