I think I know the answer to this question, but I'll get some opinions. A guy said he will sell his 5150 combo for $400 US to me. It's in decent shape, and it works. Should I go for it. My sound is kinda like bullet for my valentine and children of bodom.

If you wanna play metal then yes. If you want jazz, I wouldn't.
No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable

If it sounds good to you, then it sounds like a great deal.

I like your sig, too. Sam & Herman are great guys. I got to drink with them for a bit at NAMM! Uber-mad shredders!!

That is an amazing deal.... GET THAT AMP! (i'm saying this b/c they sell the same amp, the 6505 for like 1k... you save 600 dollars!)... no offense but Dragonforce can't pull of any of that **** off live, its all studio, BUT GET THAT DAMN 5150

6505 & 5150 are the same amp*

I don't THINK they use the + version do they? because they have used Roland Jazz Chorus' for cleans so far- not sure about the new album though

I haven't seen Dragonforce play live, but I've seen them drink, & it's a miracle they can find the floor. They are absolute party animals, & really nice guys. I'll also bet they could drink enough to get on the liver transplant list, & STILL outplay just about anyone. I've met people that have SEEN them do it. Herman & Sam are so good, they could do that sh!t in their sleep.

The combo's are a different beast, i've actually heard they're mediocre compared to the head/cab.

$400 is a good price though. My local shop has one for $650.

Thats not right. They are actually biased hotter from the factory, some people prefer the combo's sound to the head.

I would jump on it, I see them around $600-650 all the time.

If it was around $400 I would buy it, and I only play metal rarely.

That's a pretty good deal. I sold mine for $650 shipped.

There was a guy here a few weeks back selling the whole halfstack for $400 and i messaged him like an hour after he put it up and he already sold it lol. I was sad.

Yeah I got to talk with them and the keyboardist too at the concert here when they were touring with KSE. Pretty cool guys, but they were drunk as hell haha. But I dunno, I've seen them play live twice and they didn't mess up on their playing at all, even drunk.

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.

It's a good deal. Check for dead tubes, torn speakers, and enclosures filled with pillows or Jello.

I'd say go for it. I love my 5150. If you don't like it, sell it for a profit. Sounds like a win-win to me.

matt tuck definately plays through a 6505+

padge plays through a dual rec

above all i will say buy that thing now! but i would take the time to research how the 5150 really works... i had mine for over a year before i finally wised up and read into how the amp head itself was designed...i thought oh its EVH's amp ill just crank up the gain and blow everyone away... WRONG! and you cant really ask someone for a setup because every guitar is different... So i say buy the amp, its a great deal, but research on weather or not you want a bias mod installed!
