    Default Would The Real 5150 Please Stand Up

    So here's the game. I've recorded the first few bars of Feel Your Love Tonight using 4 different setups. Only one is a real 5150 tube amp. After you listen, please tell me your guess on which one is the real 5150 amp, and also which tone you liked the best, 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th.

    I think the fourth was the 5150, and my favorite was the second.
    There's a thin line between genius and insanity. I like to dance on it.

    Stay tuned. I'm going to let this go on until a few replies build up so everyone has an opportunity to guess without my hints coloring their choice. I think this is going to be fun. Sorry to keep you in suspense.

    Ohhhh! Damn that makes it harder for me. I was thinking "Peavey 5150 I got this" since I've been playing one for almost 20 years.

    If I would have said Peavey, what would you have said?

    the second tone reminded me alot of the VHIII tour tone, so I would say the second.
    Can't say much, cause unlike Brett I have never owned any 5150 amp.

    I was playing my MIM EVH Wolfgang Special, equipped with a Seymour Duncan Custom Custom.

    Amp was mic'd with a Sennheiser E609 hanging with the center of the mic halfway between the edge of the cone and the center of the speaker.
