  • How are the 5150 Cabs?

    I can get one used for 350. Worth it? Or am I better off just paying 2x as much for an Avatar or WhiteBox with Celestions?

    you're better off getting a used marshall cab with celestion for 300-350.

          There not that bad, Theres not much differance between the marshall and peavey cabs, ive owned both, Flame suit on

          Well Marshalls have Celstions and the Peavey has crappy Sheffields, but Marshalls seem to go about 500 used here. At that price I may as well just spend the bit extra to get a new Avatar or WhiteBox.

          I'm basically just looking for a cheap cab for jamming at home with, so it doesn't have to be the best. I just don't want it to sound like crap

            The 6505/5150 cabs are great. I like the Sheffields better than Celestions. Someone here( I forget who) pointed out that I could get a better nasty, more vibrant sound with the stock speakers. So far they have not let me down.

              ...Someone actually like's Sheffields?! Has Peavey started moving away from using Shef's and started using Stephens or is that just for the 6534+ cab?

                What do most people find wrong with them? So far I haven't had any problem.

                    The most general complaint is that they are muddy/tubby.

                      I got mine for $100. It sounds good for metal. It can handle lots of low end and stay tight and focused, but maybe to cold sounding for rock music. I don't know what people mean by "muddy and flubby." To me it stays much tighter than a v30 cab, and those Marshall cabs with the 75's are awful unless you change the speakers. $350 is too much though.

                        Thanks guys. If you think 350 is too much, how much do you think I should offer him?

                          I had one for a while when I bought my first 5150 it came with it , it was a slant I had that and a marshall 1960a. I liked them both I though the 5150 def had more low end . I painted Jane Doe on the back of mine but eventually sold it to guitar center for 250 bucks. In the end I kept the marshall around longer. But damn I miss that cab and wish I could find it . the Jane Doe was cute.

                            I offered him 300. I guess I can't really go wrong for that as if I don't like it, I can probably get close to that from Long and Mcquade for it.

                              trust me take the time and find a marshall cab in that price range. it isn't too hard. just offer people that amount, lots of people will post higher prices but $350 is fair for most marshall cabs from the 80s on.
