Peavey 5150 or 5150 II?
 
I've been thinking on buying a 5150 II recently but a lot of people have told me the 5150 has better tone, and I've also heard the 5150 II has better clean tone. Some one please tell me the better buy, because I am a Van Halen fan and I need a evrsatuile amp but i need to be able to get his sounds out of it.

there is no better tone! this term doesn't exist as far as it's up to u to build up ure own opinion. that can't be so hard. go and find out whats the better tone for urself. don't piss of the guys here with it. if ure one of those guys who just buys things cuz someone told u it owns major ass... then just buy the 5150.

i can't understand why people buy thing theys haven't allready tested. do you want to have tons of gear u don't use ore do u just wanna waste shitloads of money for no reason. so my advice to u.... test it then ask again if u still want to.

again ... brain=thx

OK LOOK MAN, I DONT LIVE IN A HUGE CITY LIKE YOU, I LIVE IN A TOWN WITH A POP. OF 75,000 SO I CANT JUST GO OUT AND TRY ANY AMP I WANT. WE ARE ACTUALLY LUCKY TO HAVE SUCH A SELCTION WHERE WE ARE. I JUST WANTED TO KNOW SO I CAN TELL THEM TO ORDER IT FOR ME AND I WOULD PLAY IT BEFORE I MADE MY DECISION.

Frank_The_Tank 2004-04-23 10:43

AND SO ONCE AGAIN, SOMEONE TLEL ME WHICH ONE HAS THE BETTER EVH SIGNATURE SOUND

1. i live in a village with 2000 inhabitants and i've tested alot. so pls stfu.
2. u can read TONS of reviews in the net if u can handle to search terms with google. ( test www.harmonycentral.com ....for those who got problems with searching :angry: )
3. u HAVE to hear em both to be sure about what u will buy.and if youre going to test it before u buy it why u ask then ???? u will c wich one has the better tone for you and this post will be irrelevant for ure opinion.

and apart from all that i told u 5510>5150 II

ease up on the dude man, he just had a question.

I've got a 5150 II, and i love it. Brutal warm distortion, and it's less noisy than the 5150 (especially after new tubes, cuz stock tubes suck). The 5150 II is also more versatile, becuase it has two separate EQs, plus the clean channel has a mode to go into "crunch", which is a distorted rhythm channel. Though the 5150 does sound different, in my opinion neither one sounds better, just a bit different. Despite what people may say, they do not have the same internal circuits, but alas they do sound very similar. In case you were wondering who uses them besides EVH...Jesper from In Flames uses the 5150 II and Bjorn uses the 5150. Arch Enemy also uses 5150s. I think i read that Chimaira uses 5150s. If you want a similar amp to the 5150 series that's even more versatile, try the peavey XXX or the new Joe Satriani Signature (basically a super-modified XXX).

Dont bother with harmony central reviews. Go and play the amps.

he uses marshalls and soldanos live and for pretty much everything. 5150s were used on balance. asshat.

Frank_The_Tank 2004-04-26 15:58

OK
 
Yeah but he uses the 5150 for recording, so thats all i really care about, no and i think he used to use soldanos and marshalls, not ne more tho.

orangebic 2004-04-26 16:38

lol, he USED it for recording, on only one album no less. eddie has always used marshalls, on every album and every tour. i guarantee that on their new tour he'll be using marshalls for his main tone. the 5150s are for show.

xdislexicx 2004-04-26 16:55

none the less, 5150's rock for rock. they more than rival amps that cost almost twice as much.

thats subjective, i havent played a stock peavey that ive been happy w/. theyre great platforms for mods, though.

xdislexicx 2004-04-27 07:39

put a stock 5150 up to a stock mesa dual recto... they both sound great. but the price difference is huge...
just about any amp can sound better when it's modded and or retubed.
