I just watched some clips of some bands play and one band had a 5150 and in a part of the song it went quiet and a part was played by the guy with the 5150 on the clean channel and it sounded terrible for the clean channel.

Just thought I'd share, i never thought it was that bad.

People with a 5150/6505, do you use your clean channel much?

Yea, that's the big downfall to the 5150s/6505s. I rarely use the clean channel on mine.

Well i'm not sure, but maybe the guitarist was just **** at getting it to sound good?

The 5150 has decent cleans at low volumes, but once you start turning it up it turns to ****.

Granted I just got my 6505+ yesterday but after spending probably 10 hrs with her so far, the cleans aren't as bad as people say. They're no Fender, but if you get a 5150/6505 chances are you aren't getting it for the cleans. I used my band's other guitarist's chorus pedal last night for my cleans and it sounded really good.

Mine sounds alright if I keep the volume low, switch to my bridge pickup and use a bit of delay. I don't use the clean channel too much though.

I use my cleans a lot, but I have my amp set up "odd" compared to most other peoples'. I run my guitar+SD-1 into the low gain input. I then use the lead channel with the pregain backed down to 0 (and my guitar volume rolled back a bit) for my cleans. Odd, I know, but you'd just have to try it. The lead channel is a lot darker compared to the rhythm, so it doesn't get too gainy and trebley on me. Then I use the rhythm channel +SD-1 for all my dirty and lead tones. I also keep my treble and presence down on the amp to keep it from going into OD.

Since im not a big fan of bright fender style cleans, there cleans have always sounded fine to me but thats partial due to me liking metallica cleans which the amp gets really close to nailing especially with a little chorus added in.

Machine Head does this too. It's THAT wierd.

The + has slightly better cleans, but still...

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

okay, so the actual cleans on the 5150 are ****.
but if you add some gain, it sounds very nice, when you get a little overdrive you can get really nice sounds. but if you need actual clean... it's not the amp for you, so if you don't mind a little overdrive you'll like it
