Not true. Almost all EL-84 amps are Class AB designs. Many of them are also cathode-biased. Cathode-biased and Class A are NOT the same thing, despite popular belief/marketing BS. The number of Class A amps with EL84s on the market can probably be counted on the fingers of one hand.Originally posted by harryjmic
I'm not sure if this true with all el-84 amps but most of them are class - A designs.
I have never heard a 5150 get a vintage tone! I was listening to balance the other day, and I have to say..early VH...nice..late stuff...the worst tone I can think of! I like the results that people get with 5150's for heavy stuff..but Eddies phaser crap has got to go!Originally posted by nemp
Thanks John. BTW it has a Peavey "sheffield" speaker and it sounds cool. I think those are the speakers in the 5150s. There Peaveys answer to vintage speakers as Eddie likes the vintage tone.
