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 metalheads.
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. Some people argue that this amp can’t generate clear cleans like some Marshall heads; they are right in some aspects.
So you won’t be achieving the cleans that you would be getting out of a JCM 2000, but the cleans on the Peavey 5150 are nowhere near bad at all.
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 pre-amp stage uses 5 x ECC83 tubes. Both the lead and clean channels have simple three-band EQs alongside the standard pre and post gain.
So if you’re looking for great sounding valves for your Peavey amplifier you’ve come to the right place.
