Peavey 6505 MH Mini Guitar Amplifier Head (20 Watts)

Peavey packed the tones of the beastly 6505 into a smaller, low-wattage package. At 20 watts, the MH (Mini Head) can be pushed to the limit for extreme gain.

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 6505 MH has two channels that follow the same gain structure and voicing of its big brother! The channels share EQ, lush reverb and an effects loop. Channels, crunch, effects loop and reverb are all footswitchable. T.S.I. tube monitoring constantly lets you know that your power tubes are in good shape, and if not, which ones need to be replaced. 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!

I’ve had this amp since April 2017, I’m not a touring guitarist but I play live between 20-30 times a year and I practice with my band every week....this little amp has kicked some ass! I walk into gigs and most other guitar players look at it like what is that gonna do, but when I crank it up, it sounds as good as the bigger models! I’m very happy with this buy. I now use a Marshall 2x12 cabinet so no more carrying heavy equipment for me. Also this is considered more of a metal amp, but I play punk and ska! I love it because I get a dirty ska, I don’t like too much clean on my ska riffs, so it totally works out for me! It does get some crazy tones, I used an epiphone explorer with emg pick ups and that little guy made it sound close to a metallica sound. I thank zZounds for the Pay as you play feature and peavey for making this little big guy!

Musical Background:

Been playing for 20 plus years and I could be considered semi pro.
