found a guy selling a peavey 5150 combo, ive been looking to upgrade from my peavey bandit 112 for while and the 5150 gets good reviews, he wants 500$ for it these are the specs.

2x12 sheffield speakers.
60 watts all tube.
2x jj 6l6 power tubes
5x Mesa (Russian) 12ax7 preamp tubes

i dont know much about tube amps, i was just wondering if these are the same tubes and everything or if he changed them. as well do think this is a good deal.

Great for distortion, not so much for cleans. I think he has upgraded all of those tubes

Get it. I believe the speakers are stock, but the speakers in those are great. All the tubes are definitely upgraded. JJs are awesome but I don't know much about Mesas.

And the cleans are pretty decent IMO. Nothing to drop a jaw about but they work. It's a metal amp though, and it has more gain than you could ever need.
Heads will roll. Throats will be slit. Blood will flow like springs of water.

Quite frankly it's huge upgrade, it should sound pretty good at low volumes; almost certainly better than the Bandit but it will really shine when you crank it properly.
