    Why not save some cash and get a 5150 instead of the 6505? It's the same amp.

    5150 = 6505
    5150II = 6505+

    Same exact amplifiers, the 6505 is named that because of a contract-gone-bad between Peavey and EVH, so Peavey can't use 5150 anymore. Get a 5150 or 5150II on eBay, typically you will save a significant amount of dough by going that route instead of 6505/6505+ which are newer and can garner higher resale.

    Damn, that's a heavy tone. Sounds a bit overgained and woofy, but awesome as a starting point. Maybe lower the Resonance and Gain a little and then proceed to do this ---> :headbang:.
    Thanks for posting a RAW clip so we get to hear exactly what it sounds like.

    Cheers.

    Cool GH. I have no idea what it sounds like on speakers I was just monitoring them via headphones.

    Even with 5 on the gain it sounds a bit extreme.

    Pretty similar to Andy's (well I can only assume the settings posted on Noise 101 are right). But he doesn't go as extreme with the resonance and presence.

    Axeman, correct me, please.

    Poidaobi your clip sounds very good but too much gain/presence for me... Sounds very close to to the 5150 guitar tones heard on pro albums but the more time passes by the more i like kinda "crunchy/ballsy" tones... I'd use less gain for an edgier sound.

    Man, I've been jamming with those settings on my XSr™ and they ROCK. Had to bring some of the treble/presence down (just a small notch) but it's definitely killer.

    EEk, if I put the treble above 4.5 and the presence above 5 on mine, my eardrums are literally torn to shreds - maybe it's the KT77's, but I can't believe you can stand it, elephant!

    EDIT: Actually, I see Suecof only has the treble at 5.5, so that's not too unreasonable on an Xsr - maybe I'll experiment with that high presence thing after all...

    Oh hell yeah man. I normally never put that much presence on any amp I've ever used, usually my knob is set to about 6 or 7 (out of 10)...but I just tracked some stuff with it last night set like that and just a simple low-pass at about 10-12kHz takes care of the stuff I don't like about it. But leaves the guitars very crisp and edgy, clear and holy crap do they BITE!

    Very cool article. Worked great for me. I'll post the results in the "rate my mix" section whenever I get around to finishing this mix.

    i'd use less gain too, or a guitar with not so hot pickups, cool tone for the rest, nice grain to it.

    What about the cab? the article says nothing about that. The best sounding 5150s i've heard were played through peavey cabs. I did a demo for a band with 5150II and XXX thru peavey cabs and they sounded great together.

    Haven't had much luck with the Peavey cabs. I'll take my Vintage 30's any day of the week.
