My modded 6505+ was shining away while I was playing it and I just wasn't happy with the tone of it. It seemed harsh and looking into it was hurting my eyes.

I decided to dust off a 60 watt NOS tube (it's a 60 watt lamp) and plugged that in. It's a fixed bias lamp so there was no way I could make it burn any hotter than it already was (I already modded it to burn pretty warm anyway) and I was loving the warm, golden, muted tone. Then all of a sudden it went POP and glass flew all around my room and into my eyeballs and its bleeding and hurts. Was I using too much gain?


I think I've popped the fuse. I unplugged it, removed the 13A fuse and it was fine. Not blown. I looked behind the glass, poked my finger on the contacts and got a bit of a jump so I figured 'yup, seems fine'.

I don't want to spend an extra <$100 getting it fixed tho. I've already owned it 6 years and while I love the tone of it, I feel like a change of pace from all the muddy deep red hues that i'm getting from my eyeballs now.

Do you guys think I need a clean boost so I get more articulation or do I need a new lamp? Needs to be high gain.

What are you talking about? I know I have a 6505. I can see the 6505 badge through the blood. It's you that needs the eyes checked mister!

And besides, what's the NHS going to do? Asked me to sit in an A&E waiting room for 6 hours by which time I've already bled to death?

Glass + Eyeballs is a worse combo than a Line 6 Spyder. (Just...)

According to the title he's looking for a lamp. Here's my recommendation:

I could hang my guitar strap off one of those.

Nice find!


But seriously giving alcohol to a user with mod powers is a dangerous thing.

Here you go. These aren't nos bulbs, but they can handle any extreme lamp.

Sounds like your lamp is still working, so just drop and go.
