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

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.

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.

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.
