So i recently was looking at the peavey 6505 combo.

I was wondering, how does this compare to the old 5150s? I don't care about the price difference i just want to know tonewise and all that.
they are pretty much the same, they just started calling it 6505 because evh got the copy right to 5150, i think?
Yes, EVH got the 5150 rights. I kinda figure they're the same. Peavey named it because of going from 1965-2005 ('65-'05). Clever. So are they really basically the same amps?
yes, the only "different" amp is the 6505+ which supposedly has a cleaner clean channel, I didn't hear much of a differnce
