    Does JP use 5150's live? Because on my DT video there is a rack with a 5150 head in it behind the singer in the song where it is at a massive festival I think. The song sounds really quite heavy and the guiatr has some sort of panned delay on it which sounds quite sick

    I just saw them 3 months ago. His rig is huge!! I have seen a picture of it lately and did not see any 5150 heads in there. Would'nt suprise me if he occassionally tried it out though. He plays dual and triple rectifier mesa heads and cabs and a ton of rack gear! Seriously... I used to see a few folks using 5150's (Jerry from Alice in Chains- he doesnt any more-Bogners!) but I never do any more. I love them I wonder why no one else plays them- great amps for the price. Oh yeah, John Petrucci is now playing music man guitars- a custom model that will hit the market soon.

    John is more than happy with his mesa boogie setup. Not a knock to Eddie, but I think John is a truly unique player and deserves his own setup, and for him to play a 5150 would deeply shadow who he is as a player.

    I've seen a few 'other' guys using 5150's other than Ed. Ted Nugent, Dave Sabo(wolfgangs also),and Dweezil Zappa. Just to
    name a few. Oh and Jenifer Batten too. I
    doubt that Petrucci does though. Mesa Boogie
    special designs his stuff. Sorry to say it,
    but Mesa is the better amp. The 5150 wouldn't be clean enough for JP.

    Thanks for your insights but how does that explain what I saw on the DT video? It is the song they play before Peruvian skies where u can just see a 5150 head.

    I highly doubt it was of any importance. John has been under contract with Mesa Boogie since before the Awake album. The video you are probably referring to is Five Years and a Live Time, which was recorded in 98 I believe. Although he may have been experimenting, I doubt he was using the head during the actual performance.

    The song you can see the 5150 on is Metrpolis and you have to be watching very close to catch a glimpse of it but it is definitely a 5150
