What tubes you guys got in?


I just bought the new 6505+, sold my 5150 a while ago... was causing me to many trips to my technician. Figured id go with a brand new factory amp considering i was the foruth generation owner of my 5150.


suprisingly, the new 6505's are stock with Ruby's. They sound decent, definatley not my tube of choice. Once i get some money rounded up, im either putting in JJ's or Sylvanias.

That's with my Explorer tuned down to B for playing melodic death metal.



Those are my settings. except I sometimes run the gain at 6. You have good 5150 ears my man.
