5150/6505 vs II/+ tightness

I've never been able to try the two out side by side, but I see everywhere that the II/+ version is tighter than the regular 5150/6505. But just how much tighter is it?

idk about tighter...

the II/+ is smoother and not as aggressive.

the II/+ has less low end girth so it may cause added tightness but the difference is minimal. I much prefer the MkI, has a much growlier lower midrange and is generally more aggressive sounding.

I much prefer the II to the original it's a better lead amp than the original.
I find it more versatile than the original.

this is totally true that the II has a better lead tone & greater versatility.
I think each model has it's strengths

I do think that the original version is a "nastier" sounding amp and it's "thicker" sounding than the II(+).
If I was more of a rhythm player I would stick with the original

So original for rhythm and II/+ for leads.

But what about for tech stuff?

I'd say the 6505+ for tech stuff. That's what I use. You'll want lower gain for tech stuff anyway (I'm somewhere between 4 and 4.5)


Although I haven't played out of a regular 6505, I've been advised by many people to go with the 6505+ for tech stuff.

5150s/6505s have been used for countless amounts of tech bands with great tonal success

It was established in another thread, By you Harry , that "tech" stuff is better with lower gain and a damn good right hand.

5150/6505 are fine for tech as are the II/+'s.

Sorry, PICKING HAND for all the lefties in the house.
