well what would be better for metal such as (As i lay dying, auguest burns red, as blood runs black. but still have alright cleans.) would the jsx be worth going 300$ on? and im still debating if i should get the combo for the 6505 or the head + 2x12 because its ganna be around the same cost. anyways please give me your 2 cents

I own a 5150 (same thing as a 6505) and I play the same stuff as you. I'd rather have the JSX over the 5150 now by far. The JSX gives me more of the tone I want in an amp which the 5150 can only give me with an OD on its gain channel. The gain on the JSX is also more smooth sounding and less harsh like the 5150 is. It's distortion is also more defined and picks up more of your picking dynamics.

so will it still be good for lead? because my distortion pedal now if i go to sweep all the notes get caught in one another.. so it sounds really bad.

I've got a JSX combo. It's got to be the best all round amp I've played on/owned in years. IMO it'd blow a 6505 out of the water.

JSX's have a smoother tone, much less aggressive, and have a good clean and overdriven channel.

5150/6505's sound a bit more modern, more raw, but a bit more focused.

If you can try both out, definatly do this.

Both Dusty and Paul use rackmount recto's. Dusty used a 5150 when he first joined but then switched to a racktifier. He's getting a custom voiced Orange soon too.

I stand by my 6505+
I've tried the JSX and whilst still being a great amp, on the heavy side of it, it doesn't come close to the brutality.
The cleans on the JSX are nicer, but as long as you're not a complete retard who has to EQ with his toes, then you can get some acceptable cleans out of it- I think people on here exaggerate just how bad they are- just use some chorus and a reverb/delay and you're set.

Nothing in the pricerange sounds quite as pissed off as a cranked 6505

I have a 6505+ and its great. I've heard great things about the JSX also.

The thing is you HAVE to go try both of these heads, head to head, to see which one you prefer. People say the 6505 has **** cleans, but it does clear up with a delay/reverb pretty well.

The JSX is known to get better cleans but the 6505+ is said to be more br00tal.

Try them and you'll see which one you like better.

The JSX isn't voiced for metal. It's hollow and thin when you palm mute, but it's great for everything else though. Just not good for (HEAVY,BRUTAL) metal. I've tried both amps for a month, and I went with the 6505. You wont regret it.

I disagree, but tone is subjective.

And this thread is a week old, why the reviving?
