Hey there folks. I have not said anything on here in many years! I own 2 amps worth mentioning... and Orange dark terror.. and a Peavey 6505 112. I have a half stack and a 1 12 ccab, so I have that part under control for my taste. Anyway... I am stuck between a few amps: I don't really want to spend more than 1200 bucks! My options look like: Peavey 6505 100 watt head (899-999$) : Marshall DSL 100 (899$) : EVH 5150 iii 50 (999$) I certainly do mostly heavy down tuned stuff... but I would like to be able to make some fairly decent clean tones... and have a good clean channel for my fuzz and other pedals... problem is with my 6505 plus combo.. the clean channel is completely worthless for pedals or on its own... just sounds awful with everything... have changed all tubes many times! Of course the Dt sounds great clean... but I can't stomp a box and change go it... kinda irritating. Wattage is not really a thing... the only constraints I have is: I want either 6l6 or EL34... no EL 84s for me. I want a usable colourable clean channel. I see videos of the DSL sounding really cool... I played one once like 12 years ago and remember being on the edge about it.... now that I am old man... I might like it? however it may also be garbage... i'm leaning towareds the 5150 ii at the moment. Is the bigger peavey any better at clean tones? Thanks everyon!
