I don't know what you would need. From all I have heard out of that amp you don't really need any distortion.. then again I haven't personally actually played one yet.

Alot of bands are using those Maxon 808's. I don't know what a THD hotplate is.. I will have to check it out. You are into alot of bands that I am so I'm sure you are probably going for the same tone as me.

yeah, THD saturates your tubes for lower volumes and is also a noise gate

I don't see the point of getting either of those. Peavey amps (especially 5150's and 6505's) usually sound best with their preamps pushed, making the hotplate moderatly useless. They're more for getting a little extra bite at giging volume than getting ultra tube saturation at bedroom volume.

An 808 can add mids, tighten gain, and push tubes. None of these functions do much for a 6505. I really think you'd be better off spending money on spare tubes, a footswitch, and some fuses, if you insist on spending something else.

Actually, many 6505 users boost their amps with 808s...

amp needs to get lower volume too I live in apartment, but I gig often, so the attenator would help and the maxon OD-808 would be an insane boost as many artist use

The Weber mass is apaprantly a v. good attenuator if you're looking to get one for your 6505.
I'm looking to buy an EQ pedal and either an OD or booster for my 6505+ head.

If you need lower volume, use the volume knob. Or spend the Hotplate money on a Microcube, for practice situations. A good amp will sound good at low volumes, it'll just sound better once you start bakeing the power tubes. Which isn't too much of a big deal in that amp anyway; there's a reason there's 5 bleeding 12AX7's in the preamp.

I just hate the mentality that you "need" to buy other tosh when you buy a new amp. Why not buy an amp that you like as it is, without excessive embelishment?

I'm very sorry that my opinion differed from your own. I'll try not to post in your threads anymore.

Why not buy it, play it, then figure out what you want after? If anything. Figure out your needs after, before spending all your money.

I wouldn't waste money on an attenuator for a 6505. It sounds just fine a low levels. Most of its gain comes from the preamp stage anyway. If anything, get the OD-808 to tighten up it's sound at lower and higher volumes.

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

a microcube?? haha?? No, I like Tube sounds, furthermore you were just going on, on things in which did not make to much sense. the Attentator is to make the tubes work hard and saturate for a relatively low volume, the Maxon OD-808 would be used as a boost along with an EQ to get a GOD tone

P.S I play in Drop-A which gives you an idea on my music genre


^^ but I'll just stick to Peavey 6505 Combo with Maxon OD-808

You deffinantly do not need the hot plate, and this amp is pretty loud, im looking into a maxon 808 too, but im trying to find something that doesnt boost the mids so much, its pretty middy amp

both items are good to get with the 6505. the maxon would tigthen up the low end when it's cranked, and the hotplate will allow you to cap the volume for practice.
