Re: 5150 in a box?

yes, the demos I saw looks great.

I have a Boss Power Stack that is probably one of my all time fave pedals. you can dial in anyhting from Zepplin to Slayer and everything in between. Great for 80's metal.

Re: 5150 in a box?

The AMT P2 is probably closest thing to a 5150/6505 without getting a peavey...

Check out the clips on youtube, you have to order direct from them, but most of the feedback is pretty good, you canlso use it for Direct recording I think...

The triple wreck is more recto oriented, everyhting I've heard fits with that vibe...

Would be silly not to check the AMT P2 out...

Someone else just told me about that pedal. Hmmm. Pretty cheap and pretty sweet.

Re: 5150 in a box?

As it's a preamp it will probably be closer to the 5150 tone also has it's own clean channel I think, normally I think most distortion boxes always lack something these AMT's seem to have more oomph...

Actually it has three outputs a cab sim out for direct a preamp out for going into an amps return or the drive out which I assume is for going into an amps input..


Few other demos on youtube too...

Other option is to pick up a 6505+112 used possibly do a head mod then switch between it and your riviera...

Glad someone also like that pedal.
