basically picked it up today.
got it home, turned it on.
its the 5150 212 combo btw...

basically it has power + standby
now i turned standby on...then power on.
let it all warm up..and played to make sure it sounded good etc.
turned standby off...all sound went, but power light stayed on...so??

also it sounds shit..as in you have the rhythm channel with bright and crunch buttons...
the lead channel...

basically they sound roughly the same except the lead has a small amount of gain..

not what i expected from a peavery 5150 tbh.

any help on this would be fantastic!

*dont know about tube amps tbh*

You leave the standby switch off, ok. Right, switch power switch on for about 2 mins, then put on standby switch too. When you turn it off, do it in the opposite way, turn off standby then turn off power.

explain this..

I want to play my guitar on this amp..
I got told to turn it on and standby...to let the tubes warm up.
So i do..
when i want to play after its warm..turn off standby right?

Nope, to play standby and power both have to be on.

oh...why is that?
i thought standby was just to warm up...

SO start fresh..

turn on power..

wait 2 mins-ish

turn on standby switch.


Where would i get a higher amount of gain...cos tbh what i played today...sucked ass..
havent got active pickups, but like i tried some heavy stuff..say metallica, trivium, still remains...but it all sounded WAYYY to clean.

i tried a distortion pedal..but sounded fizzy and shit..

You wont need to push the gain much past 6 depending on how loud you have the post turned up. If you're not getting insane amounts of gain something is wrong and you should get it looked at.

no gain knobs..
post lead and pre lead...ive had them at about 2..with bass at 10oclock, mid at 12 and high at 4 oclock.

it started shaking the floor...so yea turned down.

I obviously need some serious gain..

can you say..give me a few dial settings for the 5150 for a bullet for my valentine/trivium tone?

Well both of those bands use them lol, no problems there. Pre is the preamp volume, this is your gain control, post is the volume.

Pre Gain: 6-7
Low: 7
Mid: 5ish
High: 6.5
Post Gain: adjust to taste
Res: 7
Pres: 9

I know that looks scooped but its not, its a very middy amp, also the Presence is kinda weird I like it high cuz it brightens up the tone without loosing your ballsy tone.
