Peavey's 120-Watt Amp Head Goes UK-Style with EL34 Power Tubes

Get your axe fired up and ready for a beastly amp head that's sure to shatter your very soul. Your Peavey 6534 Plus guitar amplifier head fuels your signal with 120 watts, driven by the warm and powerful color of six 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power amp tubes. This monster head also features dual independent three-band EQ, resonance, presence, pre gain, and post gain controls for your lead and rhythm channels, a crunch boost and bright switch for your rhythm channel, two parallel speaker outs, and comes with a footswitch for seamless channel and setting switching. Go rock or go home with this all-tube no-nonsense amp head.

Powerful and Clear Rhythm and Lead Channels

Your Peavey 6534 Plus amp head hosts two channels of clear and well articulated tone. Your rhythm channel provides a warm and full-bodied sound that gives you a little grit when you push your signal and engage some crunch. Your lead channel pushes your signal to the max, projecting a high-octane, stage-stealing tone while still maintaining enough control to keep out the unwanted noises associated with high-gain tube amps. This baby provides all tone and no mess with every note, so you can focus on your performance.

120 Watts of Flexible Power

This head hosts plenty of power for your rocking pleasure. 120 watts assures you that no venue or gig will be too big for your Peavey 6534 Plus, and because this baby's speaker outs allow for 16, 8, or 4 ohms, you'll have more cabinet options to choose from when finding the best speakers to build up your rig. With this head, the sky is the limit.

Warm Tone of 12AX7 and EL34 Tubes

Your Peavey 6534 Plus houses six 12AX7 preamp tubes and four EL34 power amp tubes for a tone full of rich warmth and dynamic color. The EL34 power amp tubes give this head a vintage British flair, and your 12AX7 preamp tubes provide the foundation for your head's tone, adding a three-dimensional character that breaks up fluidly and evenly with every note.

Independent Channel Controls

To make switching between channels as seamless as can be, your Peavey 6534 Plus features independent controls for each channel -- three-band EQ, resonance, presence, pre gain, and post gain -- so you can fine-tune your signal for rhythm and lead sounds. Your rhythm channel also has crunch boost and bright switches. When you're plugged into the Peavey 6534 plus, you'll never be short on options for forging your own sonic signature.

Product Description

The Peavey 6534 Plus Head is a two-channel, 120-watt amplifier designed with EL34 power tubes to give this American legend a British flavor. The extreme high gain and legendary tone of the 6505 Series is here in excess, but with a special design to minimize the noise that high-gain tube amps generate.

In addition to its tone, the Peavey 6534 Plus has an amp Rhythm channel that is voiced to clean up nicely while still retaining its raw saturation. Six select 12AX7 preamp tubes provide the tonal foundation for the 6534 Plus. Both the Lead and Rhythm channels feature independent three-band EQ, pre and post gain controls and Peavey's patented Resonance and Presence controls, which provide low-end enhancement and high-end boost, respectively. The Rhythm channel also includes a bright switch and footswitchable Crunch boost. Additional features include footswitchable effects loop and preamp output.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (5 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The 6534+ is what the 6505 series should have been from the start."
Sound: The amp simply sounds amazing. I play metal for the most part and always had a soft spot for the 6505 series. But I felt those amps lacked that gut socking, chest kicking punch you get with an el34 equipped amp. It marries the best of a marshall to the gain and intensity of a regular 6505+. The cleans are much more usable and the amp is less noisy though not by much. You can get a great scooped mid sound that still has the inherent mid like quality and cut you would want or you can push those mids and really get into that marshall roar territory. I found many usable tones and very easily. The crunch channel and clean is a nice touch. They feel like two totally separate sounds. By ENGL standards this is a three channel amp. If you like the 6505 but think its missing something you can find it here. Feature: The amp has a better clean channel with footswitchable and front panel crunch option, two distinct channels and the awesome presence and resonance controls. The cord is hard wired in like on the older amps but there is a speaker wrap on the back to keep it out of the way. Also has an FX loop and easy bias controls and test points. But I would still recommend a bias probe. Ease of Use: Its a peavey, dont really need to say more. The amp has a very simple layout and dialing it in is a breeze. This unlike other amps is very hard to get a bad sound out of. Quality: Flawless build quality. No marks or tolex flubs. Peavey has great QC and reliability. Value: To get this sound you looking at engl. This amp to me is toe to toe with a fireball or powerball. In features I would say it compares more to the latter which will cost you more than twice the price. Manufacturer Support: This company cares about people in general. They also offer one of the best warranties you can get on a production amplifier. 2 years or 5 years if you fill out the extended warranty info on there sight. 5 Year warranties on amps is virtually unheard of with most amps. The Wow Factor: Its simple but effective. A classic design that you wont get sick of. No stupid LED lights to burn out. Neon is for a store window not your amp. Overall: Im overall super pleased with my decision to get this amp. For the longest time I had a sound in my head that wasnt attainable. The sound in my head is in this amp.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Pound for pound the 6534 is the new king of metal amps"
Sound: I bought a Marshall JCM 2000 a few years ago from zZounds and love it BUT it falls a little short in the metal department if you like your gain tight and not fizzy sounding. So I bought a Peavey 6534+ and the difference is night and day. Very versitle amp. The cleans are wayyyy better with the 6534 then the 6505 and it has a noise reduction circuit in it that the 6505 doesn't. Quieter is better when you dime the gain. And I agree with the other reviewer in that the 6534 is what the 5150 should've been. Feature: Independent EQ's for each channel is great feature that the 6505 doesn't have. My clean Strat tones shouldn't have the same EQ setting as my hi-gain metal channel. Thanks Peavey for that simple but extremely effective touch. Quality: Peavey amps are built to last. Value: $1100-$1200 for a amp that can melt your face like $2200 overpriced amps. Manufacturer Support: You won't need it but if you call them for information, you'll speak to a rep that's friendly and works here in the USA.
