Im looking for a new amp and I see all the bands with the 6505s and i love their tone. I knwo the bands use a whole bunch of other stuff with it but i like their tones. Ive been thinking of a 6505 combo because i dont need a half stack. Any comments or any info in these amps. Compare them to the stacks, will they sound the same? Thanks
The combo is not as loud as the head which is quite good because it's way too loud for normal use. Sad point is that the speaker built into the combo imo is not the best for the 6505 tone...
I don't like the combo version at all. Combo's always sound whack compared to head/cab set up to me, especially for metal. If you do get it, switch out the speakers.
The combos need to be pushed passed 3 volume to start getting that growl 3 volume is very loud, I keep it at 4 with my drummer, but once past that sounds like teh sex
i just want the sound of a 5150 without the volume. I play with a band sometimes and jam a lot. can u get a 1x12 combo or is it just a 2x12 only. I love the 5150 sound is there any alternative? and recommendations
I don't think it's that much more quiet.
Change the speakers and it's great.
How much can u get a 5150 combo for?
used on the bay go for £400-£600. On US bay I believe they go for about $500-$700
is there any other amps that will give me the same sound? i want a good machine head, KSE or and bullet for my valentine. I love the thick harsh crunch. and recommendations? looking for a combo
Mesa F series maybe? Rectoverb? Bugera 333xl? what is your budget
