General Your general opinion of this product. ive been playing rock/hard rock and metal for over 25 years and never tried one of these. big mistake, it's an amazing sounding amp. i've owned marshall, mesa and even peavey jsx. none even hold a candle. the amount of useable gain is staggering. finally bought one and I'm pretty sure its the last amp ill ever buy. one more thing; the clean channel is very useable especially with effects. if you use active pups just back off the volume on your les paul a little. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? this amp is built like a tank. only had it for a week but I'm not worried about it breaking down. Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? very heavy sounding. good stock tubes by ruby. controls are simple and easy to dial in a good tone. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? this amp sounds very dark, but you can use the bright switch to get a decent shimmery sound. Action How was the action out of the box? not much action, it just sits there and screams!!! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? tolex looks good and durable, better than an orange or marshall. the corners are made of metal too unlike marshall that are made of plastic or mesa that are made of leather. Reliability How has it stood up over time? ill let you know

General Your general opinion of this product. An absolute ball buster when it comes to tone. Definitely need some sort of noise suppression because of the crazy amounts of gain, but as far as metal goes, buying anything other than a 6505 is a mistake. Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The overall quality is immaculate and the finish is great. The only downer is how much it weighs, but the fact that its heavy only makes your music heavier (lol) Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Any possible tone you desire can be found here. The only downer is that it does not have an EQ for both the clean and the distortion channel. They both share one set of EQ's, but for about 500 dollars less than the 6505+, I can deal. It sounds beautiful, but be prepared for a lot of gain. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Perfect. Hands down. Reliability How has it stood up over time? I've owned it for a few months now and it almost seems as if it sounds better now than it did at first. Definitely worth the buy!

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The best amp out there by far quality wise tone wise and price wise. This amp can not only do the dirty metal djenty stuff it has an awesome clean channel as well I would prefer the 6505 over the 6505+ or any amp for that matter the two gain input makes the amp THAT much more versatile to fit any players preference! I love this amp Reliability How has it stood up over time? This amp is a brick your not breaking it. It's beyond road worthy. General Your general opinion of this product. Love the amp it's the greatest ever made Playability and Feel How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? DJENTY Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It does it all Very very well. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Looks sick !
