    Well I finally have a 5150. Does that mean im becoming an old man now? and I know this technically isnt a "block letter" since it has eddie's signature and it is a "script letter," but I normally refer to the Mark I 5150 as the "block letter." So Story Time: I got the itch for a 5150 and put...

    When we talk about metal, always is a standard the amps of Eddie Van Halen. The Peavey 6505 (5150), Peavey 6505+ (5150 ii) and finally EVH 5150 III. I only want know in reality which is the real differences that exist in this amplifiers. Cleans, distortions and quality of build (reliability)...

    Wirelessly posted (Wondernuts) Well that and I want one to add to my recording arsenal. I've been trying to get one the last few months but didn't want to spend the exorbitant prices people want second hand.

    Just having a moan. I sold my 5150II a couple of months ago as I though I needed that "Marshall" tone. I bough a JVM 410H and don't get me wrong it's fantastic. However I really miss the 5150 Tone. The JVM is a lto mroe flexible sure, but it just doesnt have that "Smack you in the face till...

    Got tired of the frayed tolex and wanted to give it a facelift. Peavey 5150 Refinish - Imgur I've already stripped everything out. I'm in the process of getting the glue off, alternating between citrus strip and goo gone. Once I get this stuff off, I plan to stain it a dark red. Here are my...

    It is with great embarrassment I start this thread, but I feel I have no option. After about 3 years of going it alone in my home studio, I'm at my wit's end. We're talking full on alcoholism, social isolation, self-negligence type seriousness haha. It's my life goal to get this tone. It's my...

    I picked up a 5150 the other for a good price. I've wanted one for years but not enough to really go looking too hard for one. I've had 2 sales fall through on me for them before so it was nice to finally grab one. My band will be doing reamping in the next couple of weeks too so it'll probably...

    Hey guys. About a year ago I was eagerly awaiting the 5150 III combo and was prepared to buy one when released. I was thinking built in power attenuation and reverb would be better than just grabbing the 50 watt head. However a friend convinced me to try the Axe FX II... which I love. But... I...
