About the Peavey 5150:

The Peavey 5150 amp has become a staple of the modern metal movement since its conception back in 1991. Its superb chunkiness and smooth lead abilities make it the reliable go-to amp for metal-heads.

The Peavey 5150 amp was built for high gain, wicked leads, and chugging rhythm. The amp has 2 main channels: Rhythm, and Lead. The overall tone of this amp was obviously designed for metal, blistering fast, metal.

Amazing Cleans

With the right amount of patience and a clever ear for tone, you might be able to achieve an amazing clean out of the standard clean settings; or just use a chorus pedal. The Peavey 5150 amp is pure tube power, 120 watts of brutal wattage.

The Peavey 5120 amp is more than enough power for anyone, and if anyone ever needed any more power than the 5150, then they’re probably be blown backwards on the first chord.

Its 120 watts are backed by 4 x 6L6GC power tubes that provide dominant low end and sparkling highs.

The MKI version uses 5 x ECC83 tubes. Both the lead and clean channels have simple three-band EQ alongside the standard pre and post gain.

The MKII version uses 6 x ECC83 tubes. The extra tube was added to reduce break up on the clean channel.
