Has anyone tried/own one?

The reviews on here always made to make everything seem the best possible piece of equipemt, I find forum reviews/opinions are more reliable...

So anyways, what are some of the pros and cons of this amp?

I've been looking into one as my next amp, I haven't found one to try out yet.

I play mostly thrash metal.

Very good for all types of metal, can also do quite a few other genres.
Very dark in voicing.
Cleans however aren't very good - they're usable, but if you want shimmery, bright cleans, look elsewhere.

For the best tingle, use Original Source mint. That shit feels amazing on your balls.

Great for metal!

I think they're great used, but can be beat at their price point if you're looking at a new one.


I was able to get a brand new 6505 for $800.00 which I felt was a great price.

Cleans are usable, but they have monster gain.

FYI you can get one of these things used
If you do not already know they were once called the 5150 (the 5150 II is the 6505+, and the 5150 is the 6505). These are the equivalent amps, simply rebranded.
IF you play a lot of thrash metal, these will be good for you. They get a really good thrash metal tone.

They're okay. They seem like a Generic amp to me. Hard to get a good tone out of, but once you find one, it's gold. Too loud for most, people, and there are a lot of amps that are more specialized.
It's okay, but play it before you buy it. I had my heart set on one, played it, and thought it was meh.

i think they are great amps.
once you find a good tone its just an amazing sound.
perfect for thrash.
cleans arent too great though

I absolutely love mine. Fantastic lead channel. Cleans leave something to the imagination though.

Yup that's how it was with mine. They sound great recorded but I could never get mine to sound the same live.

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

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