    $1500 would be a great price! I was thinking it'd be more like $2100.

    Has it even been officially announced?
    I'm sure the NAMM release will be the first time anyone will get to hear this new product, followed by a wave of demos by all the big youtube review dudes and even dudettes!

    Now that is definitely some good news. :yesway: $1500 I can float, much more than that starts to get hard for me to justify with my level of skill, and the fact that I don't gig.

    Not sure about the shared eq for the Lead and Crunch channels though.

    I was hoping it would be a little bit lower, but I might have to stretch my budget.

    The pricing is really pretty great (if that's what it ends up being). EVH charges $1800 for a Mexican made 5153, so I was expecting it to be more than that given that it is being made in the US. I was actually really surprised (pleasantly) to hear that it is being made here since they liquidated most of their US amp production equipment and employees not too long ago. I'd like to see the 6505 and 6505+ lines come back to the states as well.

    Regardless, you did the right thing.

    If this thing is legitimately under $2k I may have to finally sell off my beloved Mark V. This looks monstrous.

    Wow the price tag seems very promising.. I hope it is not "assembled" in USA though.

    The 5150 (6505) is already the gold standard for modern metal. The feature set and moden conveniences is amazing. As long as they retain the aggression and rawness of the 5150 series and the price point is under $2k they are going to absolutely slaughter the competition. Bravo Misha and Peavey, bravo.

    Yeah, I'm not a fan of the aesthetics. Looks like the bastard lovechild of a Diezel and an EVH.

    They could have put the original XXX grill on this and made the tolex ...... pink with knobs shaped like nutsacks and i'd still buy it. If it delivers on all it's promises this is THE new modern metal amp.

    Could probably make a custom faceplate for < $100 -- the bolts attaching it have me hopeful that it'd be an easy swap. But yea, that's the one area where they didn't quite hit it with this.

    HahahHA AHAHA HAHA

    Agreed. If it's lead channel can replace a 5150/5150 II and it has a nice clean channel I'm still buying one. Peavey has really never designed any gear that looks particularly sexy, so I can't say I'm surprised.

    ITT: people voicing their subjective opinions on why they don't like a signature amp.


    I think this looks great and I'm looking forward to trying one in person

    Hey Misha, I'll be the first to say it here:

    Thanks for putting a lot of used Fractal Audio stuff into the used market :yesway:.

    This amp seems cool and I wish you the best with the venture.

    You probably don't remember me, but you may remember your first time in Canada :lol:. My how things have changed!

    Ok this is bugging me: I don't think it's a signature amp, press release made it seem like it's just a collaboration, and Misha just said here that it doesn't have his name anywhere other than he helped produce it.
