Peavey 6505 Plus 60-watt 1x12" Tube Combo Amp
In Stock!

You're in Control with this Amazing Tube-fired Combo!

Peavey power! When you plug into the all-tube 6505 Plus 112 combo, you'll immediately understand what made its predecessor, the venerable 5150, such a favorite among hard rockers and metal players. This compact 60-watt combo packs plenty of horsepower into a 1 x 12" chassis, and it puts you in total command of its tonal capabilities. You get separate EQ, presence, and resonance controls for each of this amp's two channels, so you can dial in two distinct tones for rhythm parts and leads. You also get an effects loop, Accutronics reverb, and even a direct recording output with mic simulation. What an amazing amp!

Amazing tube amp

I always wanted this amp but when I was able to buy one I believe they were all back ordered because the peavey factory got flooded and instead I got a Marshall JCM2000 212 combo great amp however after like 5 years it died, got it repair and it died but either way was a great amp so I needed a new amp. Last year I got this one and for $700 I couldn't pass it over and I gotta say it has the same tone as my Marshall JCM2000. This amp is very versatile it can play anything that you want I know this amp most of the time has been marketed as a metal only amp even the box it came suggest that. If your are looking for a great tube amp that won't break the bank get this one is amazing.

Best amp I've owned

This thing is awesome. It has a mean lead channel and a clear clean for when it's needed. The crunch button is nice for a little extra push out of the clean Chanel. Only thing that I would like different is if it came with a foot switch.

Thump knob

Great ampI've had a 5150 head since 94 That did a 8 month tour w/ David lee Roth and bought many since but always go back to old trusty...it's getting to be a relic so I bought a Demeter amp for some clean tone heaven and this 6505 for some mean lead. The thump knob is not found on any other amp so you need a Peavey!The clean channel w/crunch button sound great very sweet classic rock tones ....The lead channel is aweSome as usual ...reverb is a lil weak but it's not a deal breakerIf you but one of these amps this is the settings used on the tourPresence 6Resonance 8High 6Mid 4.5Low7.5Pre 7Post 5Try these settings and you'll turn BROWN and never go back.... Love peavey amps!!!!

Metal up your....

I've been searching for that certain metal sound that I haven't found with dozens of amps ranging from Blackstars, Marshalls, Hughes & Kettner, EVH 5150, and Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifiers.For me, this is the amp. When you have the pre and post above 5, that is when this amp really shines. The palm mutes just thump and sound so chunky and crisp!! Even the 'clean' rhythm channel throws some serious tone out. When you have the Pre below 2 and the Post above 7 it really is amazing. And don't forget the Crunch button to give you some solid rock n roll tones (love to play 70s rock with this option).I would have bought this amp years ago, but to be honest the thing that prevented me from doing so was that this amp is made in China. All of my amps have been American, British or German, and I didn't think a Chinese made amp would stand up to them. Boy was I wrong. The craftsmanship is excellent and I don't even mind that this thing isn't made in the USA because it sounds so damn good!!I rarely rate things as perfect, but considering the price, performance and craftsmanship, this amp really deserves it.

Peavey 6505+ 112 Combo

Awesome amp for heavy metal. No need for pedals. Loud as ever. Recommend upgrade speaker to V30. Sounded great to begin with, but the speaker upgrade made it even better.
