Hi guys.. I own a peavey 6505 head, and a marshall 1936 2x12 cab. I just got a line 6 head III for my brother, and that thing smoked. I really liked its the features, and it sounded awsome out of the box (literally)... Am I going deaf to think that the 250 bucks head sounds better than a 6505? or am I just not equalizing the 6505 right? or playing at the right volumes (I tried them at home so the volume wasn't show loud)?.

Should I sell my almost brand new 6505 and go for the line 6 not tube series?

I just can't believe I really liked it, but Im not sure if i should go from tubes back to solid state (or digital)

thanks a lot for your experiences/opinions

The 6505 primarily runs on preamp gain and doesn't rely on power tube distortion, anyways its going to be very loud once it does start breaking up.

I heard some dude said his stock 6505 tubes blow and that he changed them for JJs and now his head is a monster.

Music can't really be judged, since it's all on the same level. Unless it's screamo. then it sucks.

turn up your 6505. it's gotta be loud to be brutal. the louder it gets the better it sounds.

Reserve any decisions until you try both at a rehearsal.
