    Didn't know if that was a sig cab with it or not, cool. Be sweet if they made a 4x12 of that too with an X pattern.

    Curious if it's what we hear in the new Jackson video, or just an amp they have laying around...?

    The dual-input (guitar detection and FX loop in) style of the G-String and TC sentry pedals has made them a real headache for keeping a simple FX board that I can use through amps and into my laptop alike; palming that off to an amp would be super-convenient (I have VST gating in Ableton) - does this amp's gating giving the previously-mentioned pedals a run for their money?

    I would love to drop a noise-gate off my travelling pedalboard if possible!

    Also, am I right in thinking the 5150 II/6505+ are known for have more upper-mid focus and the 5150/6505 more of a low-mid focus?

    In that sense, this amp would grab the II in channel 3 and the I in channel 2?

    Please correct if I misunderstand! Cheers

    Sadly, the only guitar shop in town stopped carrying Peavey a few years ago. :erk:
    Mainly because the company that owns the chain also makes Traynor amps and Peavey would CRUSH them in sales (not that they sell many to begin with.. they've had a 3 channel 100 watt head of theirs on sale for $600 for over a year now & it's still sitting there). Not that Traynors are terrible, it's just that you need pedals to make them sound good.

    That being said, if the retail on the Invective is on par with other Peavey heads, I can see this going toe-to-toe with the 5150III EASILY. Can't wait to hear the demos.

    Sort of, yeah.
    There's only 4 components difference between the 5150/6505 and 5150II/6505+ lead/red channel. The II/+ component values move the high pass filtering higher up, ergo cuts more bass. The weaker bass content definitely ups the perception of more nasally mids too (mind you not in a bad way at all IMO).
    This was something I came to really appreciate about the 6505+ I had because it meant I didn't need to run a TS-style boost as the tightness was already there.

    I'm so disappointed that this thing isn't called Fatebringer.

    I feel like this thread is a bit short on invective, so...

    What the .... is the point of just slightly modifying a 5150 and putting a couple of effects power supplies in the back of it when I can already plug my effects in anywhere, not to mention two effects loops which will no doubt suck twice as much tone as a single loop thus leaving 0 tone intact.


    Seriously though, I keep thinking of buying a block letter 5150 so will definitely be looking out for the UK pricing on these, even if just in order to go "OH FOR ....S SAKE" and go back to keeping an eye out for old 5150s.

    Holy .... this is almost exactly what I'm looking for in an amp. If this is priced right I've found where my tax return is going. Are you going to be using these on tour now or sticking with the Axe FX? I know a lot of the reason you guys like to use Axe is because it's easier than taking a tube head with you on the road.

    Edit: also what is the second power level? 60 watts?

    I can't remember seeing Peavey stuff @ L&M, here in Fredericton, ever. Be interesting to hear what this beast will sound like.

    That is because L&M does not carry Peavey for some reason.

    Man I think the opposite that this amp is right to the point .
    The point being that if you are a giging modern Metal player who brings an amp , switching system and several pedals or rack pieces to a show this amp would cut down on all the .... to carry around.

    On top of that there isn't really a clean tone to be had with the original 5150. This amp having a full clean channel and even a switchable volume boost for solos really covers a lot of ground of what you might need in a live situation .

    I just hope the tone is there and that it's as good or possibly better than the original 5150 . One thing to also keep in mind is that the loop on the original 5150 and 5152 is pretty transparent. It's actually better than a lot of "boutique" amps so I also have my fingers crossed that they used that same design or even improved on it.

    I could see myself preordering one of these from MF or Sweetwater. Maybe Misha can clue us in on when these will be showing up at dealers.

    I'm not worried about the tone or the loops at all. I'm just wondering how much these suckers will $$$, since it's essentially a 5150 with ALL the features that a 5150 doesn't have :lol::lol:
