5150 has clean, crunch, lead. He probably just seperated the channels.

Where do I sign?! I'll take 3!

No, but really.. Any idea what the cost of this is? Likely similar to the FH100 or the JFD100? Didn't see an exact price listing on the FJA site

EDIT: And is it 5 spaces?

Jerry does a mod that allows you to switch between clean, crunch and lead (instead of having to pick channel "one" to be clean or crunch). I assume that is what he is referring to on that.

mesas rack rectifiers are 4 spaces I believe. so if this is 5 not much of a difference.

I don't know anything about it really, I just saw the vid and remembered people saying they wish they could have a rackmounted 5150. For further info just ask Jerry.

This could sound stupid...but if you wanted a 5150/6505 in rack...then why not PUT YOUR5150/6505 IN A RACK. I just don't get the logic behind this. separating the clean and crunch on the green channel is a cool mod though.

It would be a HUGE undertaking to mod a 2ft wide head to fit in a however wide a standard rack is (14"?)

Yeah, Jerry isn't very good at amp demos.


Though, I bet with the right settings, through the right cab, with a better player it'll absolutely destroy.

As for pointless, I'd rather get a standard 19" shock-rack to keep all my gear then a giant head case plus rack unit. It'd really cut down on the weight and ease of moving. Also, I'm sure a customer requested this.

I guess I was thinking more along these lines:
