this thread relates to the last thread i made about how sam ash can't find my amp.

and as you may know, the Peavey 5150 has been discontinued so if sam ash did in fact "loose" my amp, how much and/or what could i get for it. keep in mind that this was the 120 watt combo, not just the head and it was in quality condition for it being 2nd hand.

so i'm looking for what kind of amp could compare to it and what do you think i could shake out of them.

and if you say anything about an MG or a spider i'm killing your family


cheers!

You could TRY for that 333XL. If you give them lots of **** about losing your 5150, they just might give it to you.

first of all, i'd do mathcocre on sam ash's ass, and then i'd demand a brand new Marshall for like $100, and if they don't threaten SAM ASH to kill their family

I don't like my family...
Nah, just ask for like 300$ more then you paid for it, unless you got an amazing deal, then just ask for a lot more.

Really then, it seems like you're gonna play that 333XL, so ask for that.

Ok, if they "lost" your amp (Sirously wtf, how do you lose a 212 combo....thats like saying I left my car at a repar shop and they lost it) they need to be held responsible. You have all right to take something from them of equal value or higher for the price of that amp when it was new. If they refuse, some ass kicking and family killing needs to take place.

I think you should try the new Line 6 Spiders and the Marshall MG's..they are the best bang for your buck!


hahahahaha....just playing man!



in all seriousness,
what i would do, is threatin to go public with your story(like a music magizene or something like that)
then if they ask...well what would it take for you not to do that...you demand a really nioce amp or something you want...

I missed you other thread. Do you have a repair ticket? Are they acknowledging that they have indeed lost your amp? Are they accepting responsibility?

If that's the case, they yeah, I'd start at the level of a direct replacement, which in this case would be a Peavey 6505. The Bugera's a lot cheaper, right? If that's really the amp you want, you could make it appear as if you're very willing to negotiate and accept one of those.

yes but as your sig says, i really do not have any need for 120 tube watts and i dont need a half stack but i would rather get a 2x12 half stack because of the varieties of cab/head options available. and i know little to nothing about what cabs sound good with what head, to be honest. if somebody could help with that it would be appreciated.

but on the other had, i feel i should use this as an opportunity to show them that i ain't ****tin' around. that's why i'm going to demand at least a 2x12 or if not a 4x12.

Running around with a pissed off attitude and trying to get more from them than your amp's worth probably won't work out very well for you. I'd go for a 6505 to match your 5150 loss, if they did indeed "lose" your amp.

I can't exactly say i'm pissed, being that i havent had an amp to play through for 4 months, ive somewhat accepted the fact. Yet in the back of my head i know that i worked my ass off for that money to buy my amp so i know that i should have an amp because i did actually earn it. I'm not one of those kids who gets everything he/she wants from their parents.

^Oh, I didn't mean to sound like i though that at all. I would be FURIOUS in your situation. The point I was making was, going there angry in an attempt to get more than the amp's worth probably won't do you much good. Just try to be calm and reasonable with them, and everything will get worked out. Good luck.

walk around with a pissed off attitude and threaten to kill every generation that comes out of their mothers and wives wombs. then make rediculous demands while screaming to attract the attention of other customers. eventually you will have a whole crowd watching the exchange. once they grasp what is going on, they will cheer you on and Sam Ash will eventually have to meet your demands. then your story will appear in the local newspaper and people everywhere will know of your demise. Sam Ash will consequently take a hit to its sales and therefore, smaller family owned guitar stores in your areas will begin to profit so you will be know among them as the savior. these small stores will begin offering you contracts and make you their posterboy. then you will eventually climb up the ladders of stardom and reach superstar status. and when you get there, remember the person who gave you the brilliant advice in the first place. me. either that or Sam Ash will call the cops on you for making a scene and you will be taken to the police station and in which case i assume no responsibility.


all the best!

cause they only made the 5150 heads 120 watts and the 5150 II heads 120 watts.
the 5150 combos were released as 60watts combos.

how many power tubes do you have in that amp?
im just curious.

That might be the power it draws. I have a little amp sitting here on a table that says it's 35W when it's really less than 5W.

Two 6L6GC tubes, right? That's a 60W output section.

It's an easy mistake to make. I used to swear up and down that I had a big SS amp that was 210 watts, when it was probably closer to 100.
