Hey guys,

Well i just bought a used Peavey 6505+ head a couple days ago and am planning on re tolexing it, custom grill mods and make it a 4x12. I am trying to base my set up off of August Burns Red's set up so the 4x12 has to be as close to a Mesa Boogie Recto. Cab. I know it has Celestian V30's in them but personally i can't afford to spend $150 on each speaker. Anybody know of a speaker that sounds close to a V30? Also if you want to throw in ideas of mods and tolex color, that would be great!

Thanks!!

Just a thought, but you might be able to find a cheap cab with V30s in them and just yank em out. I know many Crate Blue Voodoo cabs and B-52 AT412 cabs came with them, and those are dirt cheap now on craigslist. I'm talking $150.

Edit: Some Carvin cabs came with V30s as well, and also go for very cheap.

i feel like a noob saying this but could you give me a link? either i typed in the wrong thing or what, i can't find it for $150. I did find a crate cab for $100 but it didnt say if it had V30's
It's really something that you would have to search around for, but they both seem to pop up often enough.

Here's a BV412 on the GC used site for $170. The idiots put it up as a bass cab. You'd have to ask them to check if it have V30s though, because not all did. http://www.guitarcenter.com/In-Store-Used-USED-CRATE-BV412S-CAB-101312-108329087-i2851060.gc

And here's an AT412 for $200, but I've seen them go on craigslist for as low as $130. http://www.guitarcenter.com/In-Store-Used-USED-B52-AT412-108682956-i2980210.gc

Search around on your local craigslist or on eBay. Just make sure to verify that they actually have the V30s -- that goes for the AT412 too.

Edit: forgot the link

my amp and cab are both white with black accents and it looks pretty damn classy.

i was thinking that to. i was also thinking navy head, orange cab, paint the 6505+ grill and corners orange. or switch orange stuff to green or blue. oh and for the cab maybe paint the corners and maybe handles navy. just a thought

well for starters here's my first mod which most likely wont be perminant:

and i was wondering, what would happen if i tolexed my head amp and before putting hardware on, swirled it. would it feel like paint or would it still have a tolex feel? wouldnt be surprised if it was just a paint feel but it might look cool.
#17
this is my personal opinion and you may certainly disregard it if you like, however i think you are going to make it look way to busy with a swirl etc.. it would look better with something a little cleaner.

Look at used speakers, considerably cheaper and they'll already be broken in . Keep in mind the resale value of this amp if you decide to part with it. A tyedye/swirled 6505 is gonna be a serious ***** to move, whereas something more conventional like Burgundy wouldn't be such a hassle.

You're still in the honeymoon period, wait a bit and come back down to earth

Something like this, except I would definitely go for black corners and hardware. And probably keep the original 6505 grill

EDIT: i hate how it has links. if anyone knows how to fix it that would help!
