I've got a 6505+, and I've been thinking about adding a choke to it, but the clips I've heard wiwth chokes seem to radically alter the tone of this amp in a way that is unmusical. I like a nice, percussive low-end with a quick attack, but what I've heard based on the clips I've listened to just don't seem right. It's almost nasaly and super-tight sounding like there's no springiness to the notes or any give to the attack.

I've got a theory, I wanna run by you guys, and hopefully someone with more experience here than myself can confirm or deny this. I think that Peavey left the choke out to keep production costs down and compensated by beefing up the O.T. somewhat. In addition, I'm guessing the filtering in the power section is higher than it would be with a choke....so, my question is...If I want to add a choke to my 6505+ with good results, would this most likely reslut in me having to use a lower B+ O.T. and lower the filtering in the power section as well. I want to keep a similar tonality and voicing to what my amp has now, but incorporate the benefits of what I hear chokes adding to other amps.

In theory it sounds ok but I'm not an electrcian so I wouldn't know if this would work.

If no one here answers your post go to

[/url]http://www.marshallampforum.com/forum[url] and ask there. There are a lot of amp techs who could answer your questions. Although it's a Marshall place they do response to other types of amps.

Good luck. Let's know what you find out[/url]
