I used to think that I hated this amp...but Cav has one and he managed to get a sweet sound out of it...then Suffocation plays them...I dunno, I might have to rethink my hate.

I cannot wait for my Bad Cat. Because of this thread I made a call to see if it's in yet.


It's not =(

nick tries to pull that on me all the time. and then i say to myself, suffo hasnt had that good of a guitar sound since they were using the (my) ampeg.

so many people say that peavey is garbage--that its not professional and that the shit they put out is full of crappy components, wires etc.
but I really like this amp and already, I have some settings I truly dig.
I read horrendous review after review of this amp on HC and all i can think is that from what I can tell, 3% of the death metal community actually know how to dial in tone.

like pops used to say...it aint the wand....its the magician.

i do believe that the jj 6l6's are responsible for taming and rounding off the fierce mosquito "buzz" that many say characterize this beast.



toggletoggle post by brian_dc  at Apr 15,2008 4:43pm
yeah, I'm gonna switch to all JJs in my Powerball...I'm due too...I can tell...waiting until I have the new head though.



toggletoggle post by blue  at Apr 15,2008 4:54pm
jjs are key in any 6l6 power section.

though tung-sol 12ax7s (in at least v1) are my lovers in the preamp.

NICK YOU GOTTA HAEV MOAR MIDZZZZ

LOL. I remember that advice. That's why I grabbed my JJ 6L6 power tubes from Doug's Tube shop.

let us go back into the 'annals of tone....'

back in the day i had an xxl,
you had a 5150.

i liked my xxl just fine (great ss) but i craved that three dimensionality of tubes.

i very much dig my xxx,
and consequently, i continue to be un-impressed by 5150's/6505's.

want something better than a mark IV for waaaay less money?
get a dc-5.
i would describe it as existing between a mark IV and a rectoid.

yeah it was fish's.
his current rig is now unlike anything i have ever heard.




toggletoggle post by blue  at Apr 15,2008 5:49pm
the mark 4 has a smoothness which cannot be achieved with a DC. the mark series is the classic mesa preamp circuit, where are the DCs are way more modern voiced: somewhat bridging the tonal gap between the marks and the rectos. its simply one of the most versatile heads i can think of.



toggletoggle post by corpus_colostomy at Apr 15,2008 5:56pm
considering that the only real difference in performance is the innate 'smoothness' that the mark IV has, you can save about seven hundred bucks getting a dc. the dc-5 is very much a sleeper "boutique" type in my mind, especially for brutal metal..it has that classic mesa sound with some tether to it's moded fender past, and an uncommon organic sweetness to it.

the only dood i knew of who used one was dood from fleshgrind.



toggletoggle post by goatcatalyst   at Apr 15,2008 5:57pm
i've got the quad preamp, which is the mk II and mk III preamps with an EQ matched up with the simul 295... thought the mk IV would have been a real cockflex

... but i don't wanna talk about it

CONGRATS ON THE NEW ACQUISITION, NICK.

I've heard some good shit about the XXX actually. I really liked the sound of your Mesa and if this one is better, I can't wait to hear it.

JJ's are key btw. Bob at Eurotubes is the man.

what do you use for settings? what channel do you use?

i have the same exact amp, same tubes...i use the crunch channel ( the lesser gain one) with the gain on about 4-5, the his around 5 the mids around 4 and the lows around 6. i use the channel volume at 3/4 of the way up with the amp volume a little under 1/4 of the way up. i recently got a basson 412 and i couldnt be happier with the sound going through that and the old peavey 412 i have with all 75s. i use an eclipse with emg 81s. amp sounds totally different with brians guitar.



toggletoggle post by cav nli at Apr 16,2008 9:04am
also make sure your using the loose setting on the damping switch on the back, it sounds a lot bigger, fuller and cuts through the mix a lot better.



toggletoggle post by cav nli at Apr 16,2008 9:06am
how much does that case go for? looks like some quality shit.



toggletoggle post by corpus_colostomy at Apr 16,2008 9:14am
at the moment i have it on the tight setting--using the crunch channel. my settings this morning were: hair at 7, body at 4, bottom at 7, volume at 5, and had the master volume cranked! with only one vader this sounds very full and crunchy! i have a jackson sl2 usa with an emg 60 in the bridge.



toggletoggle post by corpus_colostomy at Apr 16,2008 9:14am
i will experiment more with this "looseness."



toggletoggle post by brian_dc  at Apr 16,2008 9:16am
If I remember correctly, I think it's Crown. You can get a quote from their site.

I'm waiting to get the Lynx 50 so I can double check dimensions, but I plan on getting a live-in for it.

looseness setting is soooo much better man! thank you--



toggletoggle post by immortal13 at Apr 16,2008 10:03am
I don't mind the 5150, but there are better heads. The XXX is definitely a nice head, as is the JSX (Joe Satriani signature model for those who didn't know). Peavey makes some pretty decent stuff, so I don't understand why so many people bash them so much.



toggletoggle post by GoatCatalyst   at Apr 16,2008 10:17am
I think Peaveys are rad - the 5150s and the XXX have three testes each fo sho... HOWEVER... whatever amp you are using... if you are not boosting with a (modded)Tube Screamer, you are a jive-ass motherfuckin turkey-talkin wack-ass honkey MOTHERFUCKER.

yea im not even sure why they have that option, im not even sure what it does i just know that loose sounds a billion times better than the other settings. what kind of speakers do the vader cabs have? i havent done any research on them.

toggletoggle post by cav nli at Apr 16,2008 11:32am
ah same speakers at the basson. if you can get a 412 with some 75s in it the mix of the 75s and 30s really fills out the sound of the head. you my friend have good taste in gear.
