Block letter 5150s are usually considered to be best.

Cheap amps are "that bad". They suck up your tone like cocaine at Kate Moss' party.

Same thing dude. Eddie left and took the 5150 name with him. Peavey changed it to the 6505. The only thing thats different is the badge on the front.

^ they have the exactly the same schematic...
They're the same, but the block letter 5150's are more sought-after as they're the 1st generation ones (therefore rarer)

The only difference between block letter and non block letter ones is they came with better stock tubes, I see more block letter 5150s for sale than i do non block letter.


5150 and 6505 are the exact same thing

5150 II and 6505+ are the same exact thing

Ah right okay, cheers for that, never knew they changed the valves, but I know the schematic stayed the same

They are the EXACT same amp. The schematics remained the same. The only thing that changed was the name of the amp. Eddie owns the rights to the "5150" Trademark. After he left peavey, he took the rights with him. So, they turned around and slapped 6505 on the front, which represents their 65th anniversary '05. Atleast, I think that's what it is.

The 5150 does sound a bit different than the 5150 II, cleans mainly. And the 6505 and 6505 + share the same differences. However, 5150=6505 and 5150 II = 6505+

Also, the block letter scheme is completely gibberish. The only difference between the original run of the mill "Block letter" 5150 heads was that they were shipped with different tubes from the factory which were slightly better quality. That's the only difference between the original block letter amps, and the signature series. Don't be fooled by any idiots on ebay claiming it's a "one of a kind" because it's a block letter. There is nothing "special" about them other than they're the oldest ones out there.
