I was wondering if there is such thing as a solid state amp with a simular (close to) 5150 kind of tone.
That signature tightness at the low end kind of thing.
Or can i acheive that with an EQ pedal?
Thanks in advance.
The only thing that would get close, in my opinion, would be the Vetta, which would cost more than a 5150.

You could buy a Bugera if you live in an area where the used 5150 doesnt come around everyday.

No solid state amp will get you there

Bummer as.
Yeah, i'd totally get a Bugera, but there is no such thing in AUS as yet.
Don't get a Bugera, you could get a Randall to give you a better tight aggressive metal tone. I know the Bugera 6262 is modelling the 6505 (5150), but it is just a cheap immitation and they are made extremely cheaply and it's just a time bomb waiting to blow up on you. But Allens stocks Bugera if you want to try them out

But really, just save up for the 5150.
