line 6s sound a hell of a lot better than any peavey ive played. maybe you just dont know how to play guitar? tone is in the fingers, they say. or maybe i just dont "get it" because im not a flogging neanderthal metalhead like yourself?

when the day comes that a line 6 is considered better than the amps it tries to model, then maybe i'll tell my guitarist to trade in his 5150 for one. but right now he gets great tone, and it's funny because when i first started jamming with him, he was playing a line 6 but it sounded sooo shitty compared to my tube rack gear,so he took it back and bought a real amp and never looked back.
and that "dissing metalheads" talk is childish. besides i'm not a metalhead anyways.

no offense, but why do you you think this is the MetalTabs forum???
because we DON'T live for this shit? think again.

but all right, i'm not judging you or anything. actually i believe most of the people in guitar zone plays/have played blues or something, like clapton or stevie ray vaughan or something.

sorry, bit off topic. oh, i'd definately take the 5150 rather than II. personal preference, i like the sound of if. but i'd still take a crate bv300...

more ignorance from your mouth kid!?.....*shakes head*.
i'm not even that "metal"....i don't play in a black or death metal band. but i can certainly play some black metal and death metal... i don't play in a blues or jazz band, but i can certainly play it.
personal preference retard... a guy in a metal band isnt going to judge his amp buy how good the cleans are... he wants to know how the distortion handles....
line 6 distortion= digital/thin/blocky/muddy/sterile/cold/lifeless
5150 distortion= smooth/crunchy/thick/warm.... oh and it has "tone"
thats why 5150's are for harder rock that depends more on gain and fenders are for more jazzy/light cleaner stuff.

two years of AP music theory,3 of guitar,2 &1/2 of percussion ensemble, and 1 of music listening.... in high school...plus 4+ years of private guitar and drum lessons... hell, even colledge credit....
i know enough, but there is so much more to learn. i'm still taking private lessons for guitar working with tapping techniques and stuff and latin drum stuff.
alot of this shit i will never need or even use, but i do it anyways... i don't listen to latin music or play in a latin band, but you should hear my beats

i think every body has their own style to them, but i just think overall experience and knowledge of a subject will just make you better.

I'll second that. If you want a prefab "saturday morning cartoons" kind of metal sound, get line6. If you want the real, raw eviscerating sound get peavey. Plus lots of great rock and punk tones (for all you non-"neanderthals" out there). RRRRRAAAAUUUGH!!!! (beats ground with bone, picks nose and eats it)

Peavey kills Line 6. Marshall kills Line 6. Crate kills Line 6. All the real tube amp producers kill Line 6. There is absolutely no warmth in Line 6 amps, all sterile.

compared to a line 6?... 5150's arent the best amps ever, but jesus you must be tone def if you think a line 6 is really better than a peavey 5150... i only like a couple line 6 setups... the hd147, the vetta, and a pod through a tube poweramp....
but hell, each of those setups cost just as much if not more than a 5150..... and then compare tone and quality....
you're just one of those ignorant guys that thinks if it's a crate it sux, or if it's a peavey it sux.
might i ask what amp rig you're playing through anyways?

well when he first started posting here he said something about a bogner/hafler triple giant with a mesa strategy.... which is great n all... i have a triple giant and it isnt to bad, but it doesnt do high gain the way i want it to.. the clean and brown channels are pretty good, but the sharp channel can be really noisey and thin/high pitch with alot of gain so i'm selling it now that i have my jmp-1...

and mesa poweramps are some of the best imo, them & vht... i also like the peavey 50/50 because it has a really unique sound for a 50/50 style poweramp... most 100w poweramps use like 4 el34's or 4 6l6's... the peavey classic 50/50 uses 8 el84 and it has an el34 type breakup but with a darker , tighter sound imo.

but i was just wondering what his current setup was because he seems to talk alot of shit on good amps. so he must be playing some botique amp or something amazing.
either way he's an idiot if he thinks peavey is all poorly made shit that will break down in the middle of a gig...
