Thanks teleric, I would love to have a 2x12 greenback cab or a 4x12 as I tested one marshall cab a couple of years ago... love it, but I also already run out of space and funds, so for now I will stick to my current stuff, I have some cabinest that I will be using for now, a mesa boogie 1x12 with an EV speaker and another with a celestion 90, that will have to do it for now...
In teh store I tested with a regular marshall cab and tone and distortion was really good.
I'm happy and should test it on practice very soon!
I'm with you on the 112 thing. I hate hauling a 412 cab, which is why I gig with a 112 (loaded with Celestion Classic Lead 80 - great speaker for the 6545) most of the time, and occasionally a 212 w/greenbacks.
Our practice space is full of Marshall 412 cabs, so we usually don the earplugs, and crank the amps up for practice. It's about the only time I can get the 6545 in its sweet spot.
Well, so yesterday finally have a chance to take it to practice, and really really love the tones, great recording sound, I used my Mesa 1x12 with a C90 speaker, close cab and really, sounds great, beautiful cleans, solid, strong.
Yeah, great tones coming from that amp. The 45 side takes pedals very well (actually both sides do, but I like to run the 65 side "dry").
It's a loud amp, though. If the volume is a concern, search the threads for some pointers on how to tame it a bit. A lot of folks run greenbacks, 25 watt EL34s (vs. the 30 watters that are stock), and go with a tube rectifier - you'll have to re-bias the amp). Those "mods" tame the 6545 a bit (particularly the GB speaker - the Classic Lead 80 is another speaker that's somewhat inefficient, but can handle the power of the 6545 without going to a 2X12 cab).
An air brake sounds decent with this amp as well . Attenuators can drastically alter the tone with some amps, but the air brake works fairly well with the 6545.
taswegian that close to what I want to use it, i will use it for recording in a garage band project, the 65 is really nice for a cruch and definetly the 45 side love pedals, so far I'm using a GT-6 for the chorus, delay and distortion, but I will probably try to use the 65 for some leads with an attenuator to get more dynamic and liquid.
