This has got to be the most wicked sounding Peavey 5150 on the planet.

I like how he turns the controls and you can hear the tone actually improve tongue.gif

I can't hear much diffrence there...
If you take a stock 6505 and dial up the mA with a BIAS-Mod it sounds way more saturated (the stock bias is way too low on peaveys, it makes them sound cold and thin!). Played through a good cabinet it gives you out pretty much the same tone as this ''modified'' amp.

I think this amp has the bias mod, with an upgraded transformer and choke. As I'm sure you know, mods don't really change the gain structure per se, but just enhance the tone, i.e. thicker, clearer, etc. (well thats usually the intention, many times mods make the amp sound poopy tongue.gif) For some reason though, this one just sounds more vicious to my ears than the others I've heard smile.gif

Reminds me a lot of my own 6505, actually. smile.gif

It also depends on where the signal comes from: guitar, woods, pickups. I just got some bareknuckles in my Gibson explorer and planning to write a review on them for GMC soon!
