2. Framus Cobra- I was a big fan of the dragon, the cobra seems to be preferred by many guys over a lot of big name amps. Seems like I would enjoy a cobra.
That's exactly (and I really mean it) what I wanted to hear! Thanks!
^yeah I remember - just curious if you wanted a Quick Rod in your house again for 3 months or so
I have the 4 pre tubes so it might be boring to you
I'd throw in my carbon copy or something to make it more fun for ya.
Maybe we could do a little temp trade like Kevin and Skeir did.
and tnx for stopping by
Eric, I got a question for you. Have you ever tried using a lower gain pre-amp tube on the 5150, like a 5751 or a 12AT7? Do you know anybody that has done it, if you haven't?
What is a voodoo mod?
I was thinking the same thing, that just looking at it might not be good enough justification. However, I'm going to have to wait till tomorrow to go buy a few preamp tubes. They're 12AX7s and I don't believe it uses an input tube, I know it uses a phase inverter, though. You don't think the fuse could be the case?
the reason for that is that the single rectifier only has 4 or 8ohm outputs. also i have been told since by MESA that 4ohm to 4ohm is to lower response or frequency or sum ****, i can remember lol. they just said it would be better to run 8ohm to 16ohm.
Yeah but the bias mod makes sense. A lot of guys on here want to do a million things that don't help the amp at all just for the hell of it. Like guys on here wanting to do the tube mod to el34's before they bought or even tried a 5150. The automatically assume they are going to want to do it. Or people wanting to do speaker changes in the tube vypyrs. That pisses me off because the speaker sounds so great in it and people who don't even own the thing yet are already going to change the speaker.
Yeah I wouldn't do it either. Honestly people are just getting TOO anal about their tone. 6l6's in a 5150 sounds FINE. But people get bored I guess and want to say their amp is modded. Tone wise there aren't a hell of a lot of advantages to doing this.
Well, I trust Jerry too, but I haven't really bothered to check if he had an opinion on it.
Anywho, since Avatar makes Bogner and Orange copies of their cabs. Avatar uses real plywood and Celestion speakers, which is apparently a good start, right?
I'm aware that the construction might be dodgy, which is why I'll probably do "Bob Molton's mods" on it.
According to Bob from Eurotubes you can put KT88s and KT66s on a 5150... has anyone here tried it?
Can I put 6550's, KT88's, EL34's, etc. in my 5150?
NO! The amp wasn't designed to run any tube but a 6L6 period, end, I don't care what you read on a tube salesman's website. The amp can be modded to us those tubes, but it's quite involved and the end result is not worth the effort. EL34's require the bias circuit be modded, screen grid resistors upgraded, and one of the power tube sockets re-wired to use them. They sound like a muddy mess. The 5150 gets it's tone from the preamp and has a ton of gain, adding any distortion in the power amp section sounds bad. The amp needs a clean, powerful power amp if you want a tight, big bottom end tone. 6550's/KT88's require a bias mod and screen grid resistors. They also sound a bit loose and muddy, but not as bad as the EL34's. Integrated quads can't be used either without mods. You will damage the amp. The screen grid resistors on the 5150 are way too small to run anything but a 6L6. They fail quite often even with the 6L6's. Why in the world would you spend big money on a KT88 and then run it cold? That's a total waste of your hard earned money.
I know, and I'd really like to, but I guess I go for a different tone and style of music than most and I do a weird combo of gear too. But it works for me.
You can just download it from the soundclick page...I know I have
Does anyone know where I can get the 5150 II knobs? I bought the amp used and the dude lost his knobs and replaced them with some rectifer knobs and I just wnat the normal ones haha. Thanks
Are you kidding me? You know BTBAM played racktifiers right?
Rectos are very tweaky, more so than you'd think. The tone controls interact with eachother in abnormal ways, and the volume knob changes the sound hugely. "Trying" one and writing it off as only good for Linkin Park is retarded.
get the 6505 212 and switch the 6L6's with EL34's to get a sorta British-ish sounding VanHalen tone, just an idea
Meshuggah fans eh? Sounding nice and heavy. The guitars could use a slightly fatter tone though. They're kind of grainy compared to the rest of the track. Definitely close though. Fantastic mixing job so far. Nice riffs too btw. May I ask, what sort of setup was used to record this?
Mind returning a crit?
holy ****. that sounds professional. props man, your hard work and pickiness really shows
awesome clip. how are you liking the SE?
