Peavey 5150 serial number dating ben affleck and jennifer garner dating 2016
Hi I got some questions about the Peavey 5150 II and 6505 Head.I have 2 people locally, one is selling for 0 firm a Peavey 5150 II Head & Footswitch, said no issues with the head and hasnt been biased to their knowledge, they're not the original owner, but they've done nothing to it and had it going on two years no issues tubes are good.I do prefer the older amp a little to work on because the traces were a touch thicker. Jerry Hey Jerry thanks for chiming in here I talked to you via e-mail some time back about having you mod my Marshall artist 3203 head but I think you said you don't do mods on them anymore?I still have the Artist and the matching 1965A 4x10 cab, I have it up for sale locally right now but I don't know if I should hang on to it or not?_________________Epiphone Les Paul Custom Korean SD JB/Jazz Lay's Guitars Custom Made EBMM Copy Dimarzio SD's Charvel Model-5fx 95 Mesa Tremoverb converted to head customized by my brother-in-law Marshall 1960A 4x12 (2 Celestion G12T-75's and 2 WGS Retro 30's X pattern) Pedaltrain board: Maxon OD808 Overdrive MXR M234 Analog Chorus Mod Tone MT-CB Clean Boostowned both extensively, gigged both extensively.at one time i owned both at the same time for little over a far as playability the 5150 II is tighter than the 6505.
the crunch on the 6505 is more gain than most high gain marshalls, and the lead channel is what they are known for.
guy pickup up the dented chassis, connected it anyway - and it fired right up no problem. So as far as versatility and reliability sounds like the 5150 II is the way to go, I've been using my Mesa Tremoverb custom head (it was originally a combo) with the stock mesa rectifier tubes, JJ 6L6GC's and a mix of mesa labeled preamp tubes, groove tubes and I forget what else at shows and practices but everytime I hear my buddy's band, he uses a 6505 head with his marshall 1960 bottom cab I love the sound!!
Build quality on the earlier models is much better than what it is now that Hartley Peavey sold the company - he did so a good while back when his wife died. Now he bought his 6505 brand new from guitar center and he hasn't had any problems with his and he's just running the factory tubes.
- need to have the amplifier biased out of crossover distortion for all types of tubes and to allow for tube drift biasing.
they do not have this ability from the factory but it will wake up the resonance and presence knobs like night and day - huge difference when playing in a band setting.5150 IIdedicated resonance and presence controls for each channel both clean/crunch and lead.
