I liked the blue channel on my 5153. I usually used a SD 805 on that channel.
I've debated on a 5153 50watt head for a long time now but ultimately decided it would be ridiculous since I already own both a 6505 and a 6505+. But this one sounds different enough -- and those gorgeous cleans...
I'm already making plans on what to sell...
Just ordered mine. The wife's going to kill me, but hopefully I get to enjoy a few minutes of sweet tones before the after life.
Totally worth it, bludgeoned by a 5153!
Yeah but the EL34's is a big sell, plus the cocentric pots for if I want to use in a non midi capacity I still want clean and blue to be useable with no volume jump.
One thing i've learned from my 100 watt... i'm way less of a red channel guy than I thought I was. Although I do love it.
You should have seen the look on my girlfriend’s face when she saw that I bought a 5153S 6L6. Didn’t care about the deal I got at all
Brutal. If that ain't metal, I don't know what is. At least I'll get to be on an episode of Snapped.
They'll just never understand.
Isn't "5153 Smashed Face" already a death metal song? If it isn't, you should write it as your final offering to this world.
i´s also very excited to try one out, but unfortunately every Clip i´ve seen so far sounded nothing like the 100 Watt Version.
To me it sounds fizzy, dark and not even tight at all.
I really hope this Amp will sound much better in Person !
I hope they didn't change the blue channel too much. I lived on that for 6 string stuff. Throw kt77's in and the old 50w is redundant.
Already got my EVH 5150 50W modded with concentric volume and gain pots, variac control, etc, so I have no reason to actually get one of these guys... but the GAS is real, and I know what I will be purchasing if my amp gets destroyed or stolen.
Kruse? Me too. Great mods. Not sure if we need this new one just for the el34s, but want anyway, lol
Picked up my 212 EL34 ST cab from L&M. I think I got the first one!
My 100W EL-34 head now has a match! LoL!
Pulled the back off, took out those G12H30s and replaced them with Lynchbacks. Sprayed a little Super 77 on the pine on the inside back and added a small amount of Dacron insulation. Cab sounds AMAZING! It is nicely built and easy to gig with. Very happy!
yeah, man kruse is the shit!
The beast has arrived. Hopefully I get a chance to play it tonight, I have high hopes.
Here's my obligatory request for some black/death metal sound clips. That is, if you're able.
Seeing that pics makes my GAS ignite into FLAME and it BURNS so GOOD.
Fuck that was quick! Stoked for you dude. Expectations are high.
Got to play with it for around an hour tonight. So far I dig it, I liked my 6L6 version as well. I'm not finding it to be all the different really. It is tad more aggressive and has more mids, whereas I remember the 6L6 version being a bit more rounded. Both have insane amounts of gain available. I still find the blue channel needs an OD boost for my liking and the red does not. Also, too much gain on the red channel is achieved early on the gain dial. I have been running an Orange Two Stroke in the FX Loop to further shape the EQ on all of my amps and a Precision Drive in front for the OD. Both sound great with the amp as they do with my others. For the red channel, I just turn off the Precision Drive. I think the coolest features are still the concentric pots, they just make life switching between the green/blue channels much easier. Played through my Mesa Cab, but I'm going to try my Orange next time. I imagine I will like it better, I never seem to like the Mesa with anything but Mesa amps.
