Peavey 5150 II 120 Watt Van Halen Signature Tube Amp Head that has been modded by Voodoo Amps!
This one is special.
Obviously if you are reading this, you know about the legendary Peavey 5150 II head. Cool enough on its own, this amp has had a Voodoo Amps mod packaged installed.
Over the years I have owned a number of amps modded by Voodoo Amps. To say they were all KILLER would be a huge understatement. There is a reason why Voodoo Amps is so busy modding for pro players that they don’t have time to do a ton of amps for regular consumers; they are that F**king good!
I am NOT sure exactly which Voodoo Mod package this amp has. I have not (yet) pulled the amp out of the chassis to try and confirm exactly which mod package Voodoo Amps did, however I can see Mercury transformers which is what they use in their Deluxe and Platinum packages, so it is one of the two. Those packages are as follows:
Deluxe Mod™ $1404.00
Standard Mod + Output Transformer = Deluxe Mod
- Includes Improved Standard Mod™ (see above)
- Includes Upgraded Voodoo-Designed™ VA-5150II-O Output Transformer
- $409.00 & $200.00 Installation fee (included)
- Superior tone over stock output transformer
- Massive rhythm tones – when you hit a chord it’s there immediately
- Vastly increased sustain – leads are smoother & more fluid
- Effortless Pinch / artificial harmonics
- Greatly improved articulation & definition
- Increased / richer bass response
- Increased even-order harmonics (IE: sounds much more musical)
- Superior quality & performance over stock output transformer
- Increased headroom (punchier & louder at gigging/stage volumes)
Platinum Mod™ $2192.00
Standard Mod + Output, Power & Choke Transformers = Platinum Mod™
- Includes Deluxe Mod™
- Includes Upgraded Voodoo-Designed™ VA-5150II-P Power Transformer
- $419.00 & $200.00 Installation fee (included)
- 120V 60Hz Operation
- Includes Upgraded Voodoo-Designed™ VA-5150II-C Choke
- $69.00 & $100.00 Installation fee (included)
- Superior performance & reliability
- Improved power regulation
- Greatly reduced noise and hum
- Greatly improved feel & tone
- Smoother feel & easier to play
- A must for touring musicians, engineers and producers!
- Platinum Mod™ will give you the best tone, feel and performance
Overall, you can see what it would cost you to have this done on a stock 5150 II. The price of the amp, shipping both ways, price of the Voodoo Mod Package, plus the wait time to even get them to do it.
This amp is a steal and BY FAR the best sounding 5150 II you will ever find.
Comes with original footswitch and cable as pictured.
