Decided to redo the rhythms on this track me and my cousin wrote with the 5153. We're converting the songs to 7 string little by little...so this is actually the Juggernaut tuned to Drop A with a Motor City Afwayu that I got from Drew in the bridge. This guitar does WAAAAAY better in these lower tunings than higher ones. I think drop B is the highest this thing can go before it starts sounding too thin and bright and like its lacking low end. This has really been an eye opener for me with this guitar, and I have kinda fallen back in love with it. It sounds pretty killer.

This the 5153 50s into my Avatar 212, mic'd with a Sennheiser e906 and Heil PR30 into my Audient ID44.

Anyway...real happy with how this came out. I need to record something with the Koa V next, but not sure what. Its in C Standard because I've been using it to learn some Arch Enemy solos for a show I have doing a couple of covers, but I'm not ready to record that yet, and I don't have a drum track for it...anyway...enough rambling.

I have to say...I fucking LOOOOOOVE this goddamn amp!

This sounds really killer man. I would even say these are the best tones I've heard from you. I usually liked your Peavey tones the best, but this has the same aggression as the Peavey but more open and less congested in the mids. I'm really impressed with everything I've heard from this amp so far.

Thanks dudes!

Bill, yeah, totally agree. It has everything I always loved about the Peaveys, but definitely gets rid of the congested character in the mids. More open, brighter, the controls do a lot more making the amp more flexible overall. The cool thing, too, I can dial back the treble and presence to give it that Peavey mid character if I want, but I can also dial it out, so its kinda best of both worlds.

Holy shit dude, that sounds incredible! I thought that amp would have been looser in the bottom but I hear no evidence of that at all in your track. Great stuff!

Thanks! Yeah, nope, its nice and tight. Its got a LITTLE more bounce than the Peaveys...but in a less stiff way. Also, this was Drop A.

This sounds killer as hell. I dug your lead section too. That sounded hard AF to play.

Not gonna lie at first I was like "meh" but then I turned up the volume and completely changed my mind. (single airpod off my phone, so not ideal)
Sounds fucking badass dude, really hits a nice balance between raw and refined and fits perfectly for the music.

Love it! As I said on SSO, I love the low end thickness. Not only the fact it has a lot of lows, but how it is kind of hollow in the lower mids or something, which makes the low end really stand out in a funky way. That is my favorite part of the 5150 sound, and what I am always looking for in amps. They Peaveys do this well, and the 50s seems to have it also. I keep my 6L6 on lows at 10 and res at 10 to get this sort of low end response. It really stands out in this clip also because of the A tuning.

Thanks dudes. Yeah, the lows on here are at about 6, and resonance is about half.
