    Peavey Rockmaster conversion to 5150/SLO preamp

    Ohh, not another mod thread by me.....

    Since I already begun modding I decided to go all the way with a 5150/SLO preamp conversion, as close as I could get with what I had. So it's not 100% 5150/SLO, rather 91.3%, cause the EQ is active in the Rockmaster and whatnot.

    Here is the clip:

    I'll do a boosted clip later with a od808.

    Sounds awesome. I don't think I need to say it sounds like neither a SLO or 5150 but I dig it.

    2nd clip MUCH better. Still can't quite say its in the 5150 or SLO territory, but sure showcases how well the Rockmasters sound

    The power amp is making me kind of mad, I shouldn't record clips using EL34's when trying to get close to a 5150. It was also built to get a saggy feel and not the tightness I'm after for this preamp.

    Anyway here is another clip, with a maxon od808, sounds kind of mushy. Trying to mic a cab can be painful.

    Longer clip is needed. Sounds boss though. I like it. Bet it would cut like crazy in the mix.

    I'm well aware of that it doesn't sound like a 5150, since I actually used to own one. And SLO uses 10uF filter caps for the preamp giving it a smoother treble response. And both those also uses a passive EQ section witch scopes the mids. Time to booST.

    If you can be arsed to do a few clips with different EQ settings then that would be good.

    That sounds a bit harsh. Nothing at all like a 5150/slo but the delay on it didn't help much either. Cheers, Lucius

    It doesn't sound like a 5150 at all. Let alone a SLO
