Whadda ya think.......get a 5150 head to go with my 4x12 slant or grab a Valveking 212 and run it thru my cab too ?? is there much difference between the two ?

5150's distortion is miles better than the VK, but if you need good cleans, you're not really gonna get them with the 5150.

Ahhh....probably VK then.....we do play some mellow stuff...........would running my ME-50 thru a VK be a waste ?

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Meh..if you don't use the dist. from the ME-50 you'll be ok .


I vote 5150 though.

Oh, and one thing - why would you get the VK combo just to run it through a cab?
Obviously the head would be ideal for that, I don't know what you were thinking.


No, no, no........i would just line out to my cab........a little fuller sound , yes ?
Combo and cab together for out door stuff, just the VK for clubs

5150, the distortion is soo much better.
just roll back the volume and tone on your guitar, add a chorus and you can get a clean just as good as the valvekings

It won't work. Most combos internal speakers turn off when you plug them into a cab unless you have it modded to not do so. I'm quite sure the VK is the same.

6505 = 5150

6505+ = 5150II

The 5150 and 6505 are the same amp, differnt name. The 6505+, and he 5150II have better cleans but a little less gain.

hey matrix, do you know if this is true for the 5150 combo?
i was told by its former owner who is also a guitar center employee and gear expert and he said the internal peakers wouldnt turn off.
im not sure, i want to put a vader 2x12 under it.

go with with 6505/5150... I own a Valveking and im getting rid of it for the 6505 most likely...

Valveking is decent after a tube/speaker change but is still voiced towards the classic rock thrash side of things. If you like thrash and classic rock i still would get the 6505 it can do it much better...

I'm not sure honestly. My 5150 combo's speakers didn't turn off, but I was always under the impression that it was modded that way. Maybe they do come stock like that, who knows, never tried one with a cab plugged into it

Dont like the 6505 combos.. For some reason they sound different to me and dont have the same tone or fullness as the heads.. I've played two and wasnt impressed like i was with the 6505 head... I've read about alot of people hearing the same issue as well..
#27
i guess ill have to try it with a cab and see what happens
if not, is it easy to mod the amp to not cut out the internal speakers?
i know next to nothing about wiring or any of that
but my dads pretty good
i dont think he has any experience with amps though.
