6505+

  1. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    So something I've always noticed about this amp is that the pick attack is there to the point where it's pretty much a nuisance. I hear it all the time, no matter how I angle my pick, no matter how I adjust the treble or anything, and I've tried different types of picks. It typically happens...

    Title pretty much says it all. What got me was I pulled the main fuse out of the back and it's grayed out, so I would think the amp wouldn't even be able to come back on. Checked the tubes, they're all glowing a small amount orange. No volume loss or drop, no change in tone before it turned off...

    I often see the converted head and was wondering how does it compare?

    Despite having a 6262 I've been itching to get my hands on a 5150 or US made 6505+ before they became hard to find in really nice condition. Saw a great deal on ebay and couldn't pass it up. Came with all of the tags, manuals, original box, and damn this thing looks brand spanking new. Mini...

    Boosted the Crunch channel of my 6505+ with a Joyo Vintage OD. Sounded great. Anybody know of a mod to get more gain on the Crunch channel so I don't have to boost it?

    Looking to swap the bias resistor in my 6505+ so I can bias the amp a little warmer. I'm looking for the correct value to change the resistor to. Eurotubes says 6.8k, others on the net say 5-7k. Has anybody that's done this mod care to chime in?

    So, as you may know, I picked up a full-size 6505+ amp head a short time ago. I have it hooked to an Avatar Contemporary 212 cabinet. (See photo for jack plate) Hooking it to 4 ohm impedance works just fine. I haven't tried 8 ohm stereo yet, but when I connect it to 16 ohm mono, I get no...

    After selling my shotgun, I ran into a deal I just couldn't pass up. This guy had a 6505+ he had pawned because he needed the money, we made contact, I paid his pawn ticket and gave him a couple hundred extra. The whole deal was $450 USD. Needs a footswitch, but otherwise a great amp in...

    As much as I loved my 6505 it was a little too much amp for me just jamming at home just sold it. And back to using my eleven rack with my M-2 Lead – 1985 Mesa Boogie Mark IIc+ Patch through Fx loop of My tube works head. If the eleven rack only had this patch I would be happy. Going to save my...

    I was considering getting one of these for high gain fun, I've owned the combo but never touched the MH. I was curious which one you guys would choose or recommend - I know each has pros/cons, and while this is just for home use currently (live in a house at the moment but may be moving to...

    The 6505+ combo is my first tube amp and I love it. I have found that it is very loud. So much that I can't even get the master volume over 1 and barely at that. What is loudest anyone has had theirs cranked up to? If I didn't have neighbors I'd blast the hell out of it and hope I don't blow the...

    Title says it all. Other amps that i have include stiletto deuce, roadster and unholy trinity in case that helps.

    Hey guys, for the past month or so I've had an issue with my amp when I turn it on, play for a minute then the guitar signal completely cuts out and goes to a loud static wall of white noise, kinda like the sound of an ungrounded cable, like if you pull the cable from the guitar and let it sit...

    I read on the interwebs that some people have taken 2 power tubes out to reduce the wattage to 60 watts on their 120 watt heads. was just wondering if anyone has actually tried this and if so did it make any difference for home volumes ? I dont have a problem with the way it sounds now at full...

    Just installed tung-sol tubes in the V1 and V2 slot of my 6505+ what a diffence that harshness in the highs at low volumes went away. Heres some pics and a shitty video i did real quick after a few rum and cokes and a 5 min tube change (hey at least its a real video without a Djent backing...

    Decided to remove the Front grill and remove the wooden backing and make new mounting brackets so I can see the tube Looks Pretty tough. Got a couple Tung-Sol 12ax7s on the way to play around with as well.

    So it seems people recommend 6666 for gain, low, mid, highs. Up to this point i have been fine with that as a generic high gain tone. But i would like more character to it. But i can't say i understand or can verbalize how the bright, crunch buttons shape the tone. Nor can i put into words...

    As outlined in the gec-9 thread, i'm now using my 6050+ as a 3channel switchable amp. clean, clean + crunch, lead The issue is clean is significantly too quiet on pre levels where i want the crunch for breakup (about 2.5-3). logical Options are - boost the clean - cut the crunch Limitations...
