    Anyone see him with sebastian bach and friends? Kind of a dumb show, but The Nuge playing through a Peavey 6505 with a LP sounded unbelievable. Of course, he's one of those players that doesn't need high gain to play, but I have to say the medium gain coming out of that amp was awesome.

    I just watched it and you're absolutely right, his tone was killer!! Especially on TNT, Sin City, and Stranglehold..... Sounded awesome. I would of liked to see/hear the entire show.


    I didn't care for Scott Ians tone FWIW.

    kind of a dumb show? i must have just switched channels before they showed any gear. i just couldn't take it any more.

    their next stop will be vintage guitar magazine. old men, old guitars -
    could anyone create a more boring/lame mix?

    Actually, I quite enjoyed the show. <shrug>

    That amp's essentially a 5150 no?

    Jeez, you just can't please anyone.

    I loved it. I watched every episode. It was fun to see the mentality of these guys who have talent, but with almost everyone but Ted, it was more luck than destiny. Bach's (undeserved) Diva attitude was interesting to watch. I found by far the most sympathetic and down to earth characters were Scott Ian and Jason Bonham. Not sure why they picked up the bass player, but I guess schedules probably forced it.

    And Ted's tone was excellent. It really gave me respect for those amps. Of course he probably had them modded, but through the Lester, he sounded great.

    The Peavey Ted had on stage was a dummy . I'm almost positive that he had a 100 watt, silverfaced Twin ,with all of the knobs on 7, un-mic'd behind that stack. I'm pretty sure that I'm right , I must be. :AOK

    Nah, he hasn't used Fender in years. Was using the 5150's for a long time.

    Wasnt really knocking him, as he was clearly talented. But his credentials in that group were a little suspect...comparatively.

    I guess Geddy Lee was otherwise occupied! ;)

    The 6505 is the exact same as the 5150 except the looks and the 6505+ is the 5150 II. Althought earlier models were made with a little better parts it seems. Also distortion and gain are often confused. What I have read on the amps is that they are on the edge of the gain threshold between gain and feedback squeal. Look at two pedal one with a tube and one that has a totally compressed distortion. The difference is one has a great tube gain sound and the other has a great solid state distortion sound. Both good pedals but one has distortion the other has gain...

    AMPS 5150 II full stack and 5150 II half stack and Rivera R 100 and KHR100 with 412 and los lobottom Sub 2

    Guitars Ibanez S540 R540 Jem7dbk Jem77fp Jem7Vwh Gibson les paul XR1, Sudio lite. Fender USA fat Tele USA Deluxe strat and a bunch of other crap I don't need but can't seem to part with..

    The only difference between the earlier block logo 5150's and later 5150/6505's was a change in the stock tubes which of course led to a sound change. And Ted has been playing 5150/6505 for a couple of years now.

    The amp sounded like it was set up for very little preamp tube distortion and mostly power tube distortion ... like a clean channel on 11. I've owned several Peavey products and know some of their stuff has problems with clipping the power tubes by design. Maybe not on this amp.

    I used to own a Red Bear amp that Nuge had formerly owned. Didn't care for it and sold it years ago. It was the MK 60 head.

    If you watch that final show closely you will see that there is some sort of a combo amp (looks like a silverfaced Twin to me) on the side of the stage facing in. It's almost totally off of the stage, like it's trying to be hid. Not sure how that amp plays into Ted's tone, but it is there.

    Nothing in that tone reminded me of a cranked Twin. Souned like 5150 all the way. Just turned up very loud.

    The whole premise of that damn show was to write at least one killer tune...have they done that yet? I have tuned and watched portions (I can only take so much of their stupidity...) of several episodes...but no good listening yet...it sucks you in, craps on you and gives you no musical meat...
