Peavey 5150 Home

Few guitar amplifiers achieve legendary status like old Marshall amps, but the 5150 has been steadily building fans and a cult following. First released in 1991, the early amps are now over 20 years old. It seems, like with many musical instruments, as they age, they become more and more desirable.

This website is dedicated to all 5150 owners and fans and the forum should provide lots of information on these amplifiers and a place for owners to meet and discuss mods and other stuff.

I got my 5150 in the mid 90’s while in high school after my brother and I begged our mom for weeks. We thought we would magically be able to play like Eddie Van Halen. I still have that amp today and have no plans of selling it.

These amps are dirty and get a great hard rock and metal tone. Plus they are fairly easy to modify if you are brave enough to bust out a soldering iron.
Dig through the site, read up on the history of the amp, then join the forum and tell us about your 5150.

    I finally got a peavey 5150 its the old block myth the guts are the same as the newer ones almost gave up on it playing dry I picked up a boss em70 oh yeah hear it roar im not promoting pedals or boss but now I love the amp and will never part with it. I just wanted the reverb to thicken up the sound. It really doesnt need a signal boost Its a metalheads dream. The clean channel is okay Ive heard people say its not dont be scared to dial it in its so clean that it can tear my ears out
    And if u want to sound like eddy forget that these guys use racks etc so chase your own sound.
