Allready have a marshall jvm 410h but im thinking of selling to buy a 6505.
My band plays metal, like in flames, killswitch engage and so on.
Which would fit me better?

6505, absolutely no question. Your amp isn't good for that sound in general. Whereas the 6505 breathes that sound.

Get an OD to throw in front and an EQ to put in the loop for best results.

Thats my thoughts also. I've allways liked the 5150/6505 sound but for a reason beyond my knowledge I allways used marshall amps.

There are a big bunch ofcmetal amps out there and it gets a liitle bit frustrating not knowing what to choose...

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Well if you like your Marshall, you could always get a good distortion pedal for it?
Something like the Amptweaker Tightmetal is pretty bad ass. Or how about the AMT P1/2 pedal?

Obviously the 6505 would do a better job, but you definitely don't *need* one.

I'm somewhere in the same boat.. I have a TSL 100 and play metal. I can hit it well, but ehhhhh..

I'd say 6505!

For In Flames...6505...for Killswitch...they honestly seem more like boosted Mesa Boogie Rectifier/Roadster to me. They have this really chewy sound when they do palm mutes. Also, they have been using Splawn Nitros and Laney Ironhearts as of late.

All of this is irrelevant to the fact that a Peavey 6505/5150 is probably going to get you 90% of the way into the ballpark...by default.

KSE really strikes me as a band that gets 6505 tone without a 6505. I was honestly surprised to learn they don't use them, their tone is very similar to the standard metalcore tone that is built around and based on the 5150.

Could just be a good example of how your playing style defines your sound more than your gear.

I guess that is the way it's been lately, but their old tone was definitely more like boosted Rectifier tones. They definitely have a very 5150-centric tone now, although they don't use them. I believe they recorded with Splawn this time around if instagram photos are accurate...which I have heard can be dialed in to be similar. I just always associate the 5150 with this sharp and tight tone that works for the very stabby single note riffs on low strings. It's almost clangy...if that's possible.

Interesting, I get that vibe from their old stuff more than their new stuff. I'm listening to this right now, and I can definitely hear that Marshall-esque midrange fizz.

^I definitely hear that Offworld.


A 6505 would work nicely there - but that being said, the JVM should have any trouble reaching that territory. It hit that for me when I tried it without a boost.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
