Lately ive been told the 6505 is not tight enough for my tastes.
Any comments on how tight the sound of the 6505/5150 is?

Im looking into getting one but im not sure if it will be tight enough apparently.

my ears told me the 6505 was a very tight amp when i played?
where are you hearing this from?
...
#3
It's tighter than a ten year old.
Call me the rap assassinator. Rhymes rugged and built like Schwarzenegger

The 6505 is tighter than an unemployed Scot. You'll be fine.

Why not try one and see though?

The 6505 can be as tight as you like or as loose as you like
Shame the same can't be true about women
ohai little sig.

My guitar center is part of a stripmall.
The only tube amp they have is the valveking.

Its basicly impossible for me to test one.

Its an very tight amp.. If you need proof just hit up some of your favorite bands and see what they use. Odds are they are using 6505's

If only Chuck had a phone in his death bed...

The 6505 is VERY tight, to say the least.

What are you comparing it to? An SS amp? A Framus Dragon?

6505=tight
Dual Rec=loose.

You realize how ridiculous that sounds? That's like saying "Lately I've been told that the I don't like the hamburgers at Burger King."

Don't let other people's opinions sway your own. Go out and test the thing out and see what you think for yourself.

I dont think chuck used 6505's.

Correct. He used first-gen Marshall Valvestates. As for the 6505, I find it is also a tight amp when EQd right, though can get flubby once you get the gain past 8 or so. The combo's sound kind of flubby in the bass and mids compared to the half stacks though.

Chuck of Death I think. I can't spell his last name, but his signature/tribute BC Rich Stealth just came out if that helps

Chuck Schuldiner. I figured that's who they were talking about but then I read something about him using 6505s or something... cuz he died in '01 and they didn't come out until '04 lol.

Chuck Schuldiner Of Death.

Another tone i like is Waclaw "Vogg" Kieltyka of Decapitated's Guitar tone.
Winds of creation expecialy.
Yet i cannot find what amplifier he used.

The 5150/6505 is a pretty tight sounding amp in regards to lowend, etc. However, it was too muddy for my tastes, so I sold mine

I've had tube amps for a while now, but never actually had any go down on me

maybe you're not saying the right things? an amp likes to know you care.
