Looks like it's official. Eddie and Peavey are done. They have renamed the 5150 the 6505. It looks like a 5150, with different badging. Wonder what they'll do with the Wolfgang?
Vintage brat will prolly be able to give you a better answer , but i imagine they were massed produced for a fair while so might not go up in value for a long time especially the 5150II'skudochop said:Does anybody know how many 5150s are out there? How long will it be before these start to really go up in value, if ever?
Don't worry...Ed will come up with some reason to say that the 5150/II was compromised by Peavey in an effort to control the production costs....but the new EVH <insert brand name here> is the real amp I have been wanting for the last 25 years.....and it's only twice the price.kudochop said:I'd like to know what will be so "buy worthy" about the next amp Ed endorses? You can already get a sweet tone out of 5150s (and any number of other amps).
So in a nutshell: Why should I buy EVH's "new amp"?!?!?
I think Peavey has more that proven themselves as a SOLID amp company with the 5150, XXX, and JSX......a lot of people are using these amps and not just becasue of endorsement deals. The only real mistake they made in recent history was that Wiggy POS thing. If they lower the price on the 6505 to about 20% less than the JSX.....they will sell a lot of them to the metal crowd.axeshredder said:Well obviously Peavey is now i company to be reckoned with..they dont mess around and are shooting for the moon...so whats there replacement for the Wolfgang?
