5150jj tesla(quad) JJ tesla 6L6 5150 SlantComments and modifications to your 5150 No mods. All stock. Had that famous angry hornet buzz and scalded pussy-cat hiss these amps are known for but recently for neccesity,I swapped one pair of JJ 6L6's for a pair of tung-sol 6L6's.This mixed value set of tubes has made this amp sound infinitly smoother. The hiss is largely gone and the "ice pick in the forehead" effect has been marginalized. This amp has been in the garage for years but it now sits proudly in the studio with his long forlorn brethren.

5150 IIStockStock5150 SlantStock 5150 II half stack. Love this amp. It's the amp I've been looking for since I first heard the 1st Van Halen album in 1979. Eddie's tone is amazing and I knew that his tone is exactly what I've been hearing in my own head. I've had Marshall's, Crate's, Carvin's and numerous off the wall brands and the Peavey 5150 is the one I been waiting for. I use the NEW Fender-made Wolfgang, Peavey Wolfgang Special EXP (upgraded) and a Charvel EVH Art Series (3 color stripes) so my tone in complete. If I had to make one suggestion it would be to have the clean channel more Fender sounding for a completely versatile sounding amp. But, I'm not complaining.
515012AX7 factory6L6 factory5150 SlantNothing its all a factory. signature model head, slant 5150 speaker cab with 4 12" speakers. dosent sound like it used to never had a good clean channel, needs to be re tubed. but very reliable never any problems.
groove tubesgroove tubesOther (include in comments)Groove tubes!all the way.talked to scott McDonough frm bleeding through at a show and he swore by mesa tubes,dude nothin but tone dead waste of $!
515012ax7JJ'sOther (include in comments)I have an original 5150 with JJ's and 1 mullard 12ax7. This is a not at all lean (fat) rocken machine, it's fat. Couple this amp with a cab made from Baltic berch and loaded with Rola Celesion 65's (15 ohm ) and you will have the rig of dreams. Real deal Eruption tones. Listen to the mids and roll them back a little add some delay and a touch of verb and you are then a rock star. Do it you will be amazed.

5150 IIStockStock Sovtek 6L6wxt+Other (include in comments)This thing is bone stock, I have only took it in for service once bacause my post gain on the rhythm channel was cutting in & out. It still has the stock tubes in it. I play the S--t out of this thing and it's an F---ing workhorse. I run it through a straigt Marshall 1960A cabinet. I wish I had the 5150 cabinet, but the Marshall doe's okay.

5150stock (yep, over a decade old and still good)JJ'sOther (include in comments)bought used back somewhere around '94 from this Christian rock dude. been playing it all these years through a pair of old ADA split stack 2x12's. Plan on getting the 5150 cab or a 4x12 with v30's in it.Amp has been through hell and was almost left for dead but I brought it back from the brink. The fact that this amp has survived me for damn near two decades is a testimonial to it's ruggedness. The tone from this amp is awsome but needs the bias mod to take away the harshness. This amp has balls the size of church bells. It's a one trick pony, then again so am I.

5150 StraightI find the cabinet on the internet ,from a guy near to my city, and I inmediatly ran for it. I use it with a 2 channel Mesa Boogie triple Rectifier, el34 power tubes. I don?t know if the combination of this head and the cabinet is the best.. but it?s very powerfull, clean and warm, specially when I turn the master to 6-7 level....
