Looking to get a few pedals for my 6505, not really sure of specifics. I have heard the MXR 10 band would be a good idea. I was also thinking delay maybe? Any recommendations?

depends what style you play but I would say for the amp alone defently look into a noise gate.

Mostly play stuff similar to arch enemy/dark tranquillity..so yeah death metal. I;m a bit sceptical of getting an ISP..i bought one a while back and it did not do anything to the 3 amps I tried it in. Replaced batteries, checked connections, just worked better as a brick.

I feel so noobish asking this, but im honestly confused on what a chorus really does. I have a vague idea, but what specifically does it do?

Chorus will help with cleans. All I would suggest is a wah, eq, noisegate, compresser(realy your call on that I don't like them much lot of people do), chorus for clean channel, small delay like a DD3, not much ya need other then that. If you want some wierd effects then check out octives, flanger, phase 90, rotary, whammy, those sort of things.

I was thinking a DD-3..I assume that will be enough for most simple delay with solos kinda stuff?

Also, I love how michael amott uses the wah progessively in his stuff. Suggestions for a wah?

Noise gate - ISP Decimator (tames the beast)
OD Pedal - Maxon OD9 (tightens even more)
Chorus pedal - EHX Small Clone (improves cleans)

Those would be the "must haves" if you are getting effects for it. The rest would be up your own interpretation.

an OD for a 6505? That seems a bit overkill

for a wah I would say Dunlop but they have so many wahs you realy have to try them out for yourself. My favorite of theres would have to be the 535Q, classic fassel, and the Zakk Wylde. But I realy want to try out the new EVH one. If you want a real simple classic mettalica sort of wah pick up the reagular dunlop one they can be found for $70 new.

Its not. You'd be surprised how many people boost them. It tightens the sound quite a bit and makes it sound better overall.

Interesting. Seeing as I've got you here i might as well ask a few other questions about the 6505. Why does the head version not come with reverb?
When the time comes for new tubes, what should i opt for?
And lastly, should i buy an eq for it?

+9000. The noise gate is an absolute must, the amp is unbarable at anything above 2 without it.

OD because it gets pretty muddy imo.

Chorus for better cleans (if you need them) is always good. Make them sound quite a bit better. Cleans are actually pretty decent at low volumes though.

1) I dunno, you'd have to ask Peavey on that one.
2) I use http://tubedepot.com/jj-ecc803s.html in the preamp, and http://tubedepot.com/jj-6l6gc.html in the power amp. JJ's handle the gain extremely well.
3) Some people think it makes a huge difference, some don't. If you do want an EQ, get the MXR 10 band.

DD3 Delay-heard it at arch enemy concert, sounded good.

DD3 - I own one and honestly can't get anything I like out of it. Maybe it'll be better for you.

OD - I'd suggest a Maxon OD-808, but there's also the OD-9, OD-9 Pro, Ibanez TS-808 and TS-9 as well as they more botique pedals from Fulltone, etc.

Wah - Never really found a use for these so can't help you there.

Noise Gate - Definitely the Decimator. It's a great gate and does what it's meant.

Perhaps if you want extra options, I'd suggest taking a look at a TC Electronics G-Major. It will have all those effects, plus more, except the wah (as far as I know). It'd cost significantly more depending on what you decide to go with pedal wise, but I'd rather have one than all my pedals honestly.

The voicing mainly. I'd suggest using both to see which you like most.

Im not in favor of a noisegate as a pedal for two reasons:
- It only takes away the noise caused by your pedals, and not the noise of the amp itself on the lead channel.
- Tonesuck!!

Let someone build in a noisegate for the lead channel. Costed me 60$, and its way better then a pedal.

Pedals i reccomand:
delay, chorus, reverb.

Not necessarily.
I myself use an OD to boost it in some occasions. I like to keep my gain pretty low on that amp. On the second channel, it kinda remains on 3. But for solo's i need a tad more gain sometimes to let tappings and legatos sound fluently. Thats when i kick my OD for a little boost.

Reasons why I AM in favor of a noise gate for 2 reasons:
1) The ISP decimator in no way sucks any tone from the amp.
2) Putting the noise gate in the effects loop eliminates amp hum. Im surprised no one has said this yet

I never used any pedals with my 5150 except the ISP Decimator. So...how exactly would it be taking away only the noise from my pedals?

It also doesn't suck tone.

not only that, it's not just a gate that chops off the whole signal at the threshold, it's a supressor that can be selective on what it gates instead of chopping everything. The newest GString pedals also have an fx loop I/O that uses the first input guitar signal to track what's noise and what's actual signal in the fx loop.
