correct. new name - same amp - same price (bastards!).
i only say that as i was told (by a Peavey rep) Peavey would lower the prices since EVH doesn't get royalties anymore - but they didn't change a bit.
They are the same exact amp, they are using the same components and everything, they just took "5150" and "Eddie Van Halen" because Eddie owns the rights to the name "5150" . . .as well as "Eddie Van Halen" obviously.
EVH quit his endorsement deal, but its such a popular amp so they kept making it, they just took the copyrighted "5150" off and changed it to 6505, which is significant to something, I dont remember what, it relates to Peavey and its anniversary of something but I dont remember what.
ok 65 to 05 is where they get the name, the 6505+ notice the plus there has the better pre amp the then the regular 6505, but there both the same as the 5150, new look. thats it there great amps. i like the 5150 better though it looks cooler in my opinion.
