Wrong.

The 5150 and the 6505 are the same amp. Just as the 5150II and the 6505+ are the same amp. Just different name coz of EVH.

They're great if you want a raw metal tone, and aren't bothered about cleans which are alright, but nothing special. The + has slightly less gain but the cleans are nicer.

5150=6505
5150II=6505+
same amps, different name.
the 5150 and 6505 have a tad more gain
the + version has seperate eq and slightly better cleans.
just got with the normal 6505/5150, no one buys a 6505 expecting cleans anyway

Hes not wrong, they did change it slightly. T

Anyways, i have the 6505+, the thing rocks, its a not BS amp, jsut straightforward raw tone. Wont cover your mistakes though thats for sure. You would love it for any type of metal.

Apart from aesthetics, name, and valves, no they didn't.

Anyway, great for metal.
The + version has a negligible amount of less gain and SLIGHTLY nicer cleans because they have an extra preamp valve, meaning more headroom. They also have an extra EQ which is VERY useful if you don't ONLY use loads of gain. The cleans are not good, no, but they're perfectly acceptable for the genres you'd use them for.


edit: ^ Not bad - you can pick up used 5150 combos for £500-£700 on eBay usually, so use that as your own reference point as to if you think it's worth it

edit: I didn't see that you're getting a cab as well - the 6505 cabs aren't that good but the pair for £800 is pretty good.

What he said. Pretty much everyone says they're the exact same amps, except for stock tubes maybe. What was changed then?

diff tubes can make a huge diff sound wise tho


Quote by mohawkkidJohn
actually from my exp. i have noticed that the 6505+ has better cleans then the 5150 but maybe that was just the amps i played. there is such a large range of difference between the peavey products ive played(even from the same run of the amp) IMO peavey are a little bit to lax on product quality

no the only variable was the head so the only one it could have been was tubes or amp itself
