    Default New Amp

    So I hate my Line 6 120 amp. I figure right now I have a 700.00 budget. Recommendations please.

    Depends on what you're looking for. I love this Peavey 5150 combo.

    I played through an Egnater Rebel 30 at GC for a couple hours the other day and it sounded really good.

    Considering your budget, you can't go wrong with the Blackstar HT40 Venue Series. Most versitile with the best tone. If you can't find a tone you like, you haven't turned the knobs enough.

    Thanks I like the Peavey as well. The HT 40 looks good as well. The Egnator Rebel 30 is 400.00 more than I want to spend though.

    I have a 6505+ combo that rocks pretty good.

    You can't find a new 5150 from Peavey, they don't make them anymore. You have to buy the 6505 which is the same thing.

    You might happen across a NOS amp online . Try eBay , Craigslist , etc. Just a thought . Even getting a used one can be a great thing . Those amps are really cool .

    Yup . They are supposedly the identical amp , minus the 5150 logo and Eddie's facsimile autograph on the rear . Lot's of players swear by their 6505's .

    Agreed . Great amp and great rock tone . I've owned a few myself ... A local seller (Kijiji) has one listed for $500.00 Canadian . I'm not in the market for one - but the price is a real steal .

    I don't know where you're looking for amps, but the Rebel 30 was $450 new at my GC.

    Another vote for the Peavey 5150 combo....if you look around on Craigslist/Kijiji, you should be able to find a used one in your price range...good luck with your search.

    My guy I get all my stuff from for real good money. Said he would sell me the 6505 for 475.00 shipped. Same as the 5150 correct?
