The 6505 is the relaunch of the 5150 Series, the immensely popular amplifiers Peavey designed with Edward Van Halen. 6505 Series amps feature five 12AX7 preamp tubes and four 6L6GC power amp tubes, with presence and resonance controls and three-band EQ for taming their notorious tone. While known as the 5150, these amps became the undisputed go-to guitar amps for scores of rock, hardcore and metal bands due to their raw tone, relentless power and road-proven reliability. The 6505 is still the unquestionable choice for an ever-expanding list of players everywhere.

    Comments about Peavey 6505 Guitar Amplifier Head:

    Over my playing career I have owned over 10 different 5150 & 6505 series amplifiers. They are a tried and true work horse in the metal community and you have heard them on nearly every record in the genre. If you want an instant metal tone out of the box with not much EQ fiddeling then look no further. The 6505 shares the EQ between both channels as opposed to the + variant. Their gain stage tubes are also in different slots and many including myself think the 6505 is more aggressive sounding then the + model.
