I'm now in a band and since I lack a decent amp, the bassist is letting me borrow his 5150/Carvin Legacy halfstack and I need settings for it. I am using it, but very reluctantly, due to the fact the cleans are sub-par and it's a little to dark for my tastes. Does anyone have any settings I can use with the 5150 in conjunction with a Boss EQ pedal and CE-1 chorus for the cleans? I was planning on using the EQ for a treble boost to help make the amp a little brighter.

just, on the amp, roll off the lows, put the mids and highs to like 6 ot 7 and boost the Presence...that should do fine.

So he has a Carvin legacy halfstack AND a peavey 5150? wow... dont drop that bassist :P Well im afraid cleans from a 5150 are gonna be hard to find (at least a good one you can probably find a decent one ) Thats why im headed into the Peavey XXX instead of 6505/5150

In terms of tone, I want a tone that's "heavy", but with more treble and mids. Not realy thrash, though. And I want it as bright as the 5150 can get. I guess you can say I'm in a "hardcore" band, but we're not quite hardcore. We have a sound a lot like that of UnderOath.

There's two. The other one is using a Valvestate/older 1960A stack with a Gibson SG Special Faded. And I'm playing through the 5150/Legacy stack with an Epi LP Custom, if any of that matters at all.

ummm, what you prolly want to do is have each of you pick a frequency range
like in my friends band, one player has more bassy tone, and the other has more treble.
That way your not fighting to be heard as much

This is the setting I use on my 5150 II. Sounds killer for my guitar, pickups, and cab. Adjust to taste.

Lead Channel:

Pre Gain- 7.5 to 8 (This would be equivalent to maybe about 6 on the original 5150)
Low - 7.5
Mid- 1.5
High - 3
Resonance - 7
Prescence - 9.2
