    I never intended to become a fanboy. I never desired to buy signature gear. Yet here I sit with Tremonti pickups, the Tremonti wah, and now the Tremonti amp!

    So far I've only played this thing through my 2x12 with one working speaker (I'll get to try it through my Marshall 1960A this weekend). Holy smokes is this thing amazing. This is my first lunchbox style amp and I'm floored by how loud it is, and I'm only keeping the master at about half. Cleans are extremely clear. Haven't tried a chorus or comp pedal through it yet but my keeley caverns 2 sounds fantastic in the fx loop. Honestly, I've tried my fortin grind on the front end and it's a little TOO hot! From what I can tell, this thing doesn't need a boost pedal. I've tried my LTD snakebyte with the hetfield set in standard, my ESP H with the tremonti set in standard, an M17 with a dimarzio imperium in standard, my schecter C8 Hybrid with EMG 57/66 in E, and my agile LP style 7 with BKP miracleman/original Q tuner in Drop G, and this thing has excelled with all pickups and all tunings. I had to dial the bass back just a little but that may have to do with the small room I've been playing in. Just a few pics and hopefully a short video on Friday. Really can't wait to run it up against my Laney Ironheart.

    Love mine. Other guitar player just got his earlier this week, too. I compared to my IRT Studio, and it wasn't even close...IRT Studio is gone, now. Shit, this thing even made me sell my 2 Mesa Mark IVs LOL.

    I running mine through a 1X12 Panama cab with a PRB driver. Sounds great. One of these days I’m going to have to try in through my 4x12 with V30’s.

    The 6505 will eat it for breakfast if we're talking high gain brootz. I got distressed when I played an MT15 and had to go home and fire up the 6505 just to check if it still "had it." It took the surgeons 4 hours to re-attach my face. :lol:

    For versatility though...MT15. It's an awesome amp.

    i think he means the 6505 mini head since they're in comparable wattage/sizes.

    the 6505 mh really isn't that great imo. It's kind of meh for cleans and br00tz, especially for the price of one new. I much preferred the 5153 head I tried (and the old 5150 my buddy had). The extra headroom/bigger power transformers really lets the amp breathe and sound fucking enormous.

    Yeah, I was talking about the OG 6505 120 watt head. I haven't even tried the MH. I don't care to try any more EL 84 based amps...

    lol yeah, there's no comparison between the mh and the 120watt. Totally different vibes imo
    EL84 is fine, people just associate it with shitty low wattage amps. A cranked vox ac30 or my mesa f30 sound pretty fucking mean ime

    ^I've got band practice Sunday and two shows (album release!) next weekend. As of now, I've only played it through 2x12 with one working celestion Gk12-85 and it's been phenominal. I'll be playing it through a marshal 1960a (g12t-75s) on Sunday so I can report back how it handles! Loving the discussion here and I'm happy to see other folks who own it! \m/
