Peavey 6505 Plus Mini Guitar Amp Head

Featuring an all tube preamp and power amp, the Peavey 6505 MH authentically produces the much loved tones of the legendary Peavey 6505 in a small, portable package.

The back panel of the 6505 MH is full of modern technology, including Peavey's exclusive MSDI output, USB recording output, headphone output, speaker defeat switch, and built-in power attenuator!

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Very happy with this little guy. "
Sound: This is the 6505 sound that has been the standard for Metal tones for the past decade, but just in a smaller package. It sounds great on the 1 watt mode in my room, and sounds even better when cranked up on the 20 watt mode at band practice. My live sound has considerably improved since upgrading from a Spider head as well. It is a little loose sounding without an od, but if you're playing doom/black/grind, you probably won't need a boost. Definitely recommend it for modern death metal, djent, and anything that requires a tighter sound. Clean channel and crunch are usable, and sound good enough with the built in reverb. Check out the classic 20 or the valve king if you don't play metal or hard rock, though. Feature: XLR out, USB out, cab dummy load, variable wattage, headphone jack, built in reverb... Basically, if you have power and a guitar, you'll find a way to play this amp. I've used this amp with and without a cab when playing live going direct out, and it sounded fine. I however, don't recommend recording direct out unless absolutely necessary. Ease of Use: Everything is straightforward and simple. EQ controls work well and respond fantastically. Quality: Pretty darn tough, but I wouldn't abuse it. Definitely not as tough as its older brother, though. Only concern is when playing in a room with unstable power, its power tube status lights would flicker on me and the sound would cut out . A power conditioner fixed this problem and I haven't had any issues since. Value: This amp could sell for $600 and would still be a good price. Manufacturer Support: Haven't had to deal with Peavey, but if the amp holds up, I shouldn't have to! The Wow Factor: It's hard to believe such a small amp can sound so good and be so loud. Overall: For what I do (bedroom practice, band rehearsals, mic'd gigs), it couldn't be better. Even though it's twenty watts, I've never had to turn the volume past twelve o clock. Can get a classic Metal tone with no problems. Throw in an od/boost and you've got all the modern Metal gain you'll ever need.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Do it now!"
Overall: So I used to have the 120W version of this amp... Hated it cause I couldn't even turn it up past 1 without killing my ears. So when a guy came along on craigslist and wanted to trade, I was all about it. I took this thing out of the box and plugged it in and let me tell you.. This thing is freaking sweet. You can attenuate it with the switch but I usually keep it on the 20 watt setting because the 1 and 5 watt setting color the tone too much in my opinion. This amp also has the reverb built into it which is super cool in my opinion. I play a lot of metal but I also like a lot of older music.. This thing covers all the spectrums for me. Get it now. You wont regret it.
Style of Music: Metal with heavy blues influence, Rock, Shedding.
