Featuring an all tube preamp and power amp, the 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, plus a built-in power attenuator!

Comments about Peavey 6505 Mh 20-Watt Micro Tube Guitar Amplifier Head:
I just recently picked up this little guy at my Local Sam Ash, and I have to say that I was blown away by it when I first tried it out. I tested it against a couple other reputable heads to get a feel for where it falls in the spectrum and I've got to say that this head could easily be worth another $200-$300. It produces great cleans and has Footswitchable built -in crunch if you really want some chunky rhythms. The real money maker, however, is the lead channel. While turning the pre-gain you go from subtle overdrive, to AC/DC-ish rock, to Heavy Metal and beyond! All while not destroying your guitars tone. I've found that right around 1 o'clock (or 6 on the knob indicator) seems to produce a really nice heavy sound.
This guy also comes with a couple of nice features, especially for those looking to be quieter while playing. The Power Attenuator lets this head go from a VERY LOUD 20 watts to a bedroom safe 1 watt, really letting you crank up the tubes and still get some nice warm tones while still being quiet.
The Headphone jack and Speaker defeat on the back are godsends as I always seem to get inspiration late at night and I can now plug some headphones in and not have my girlfriend coming at me with a knife!
The MSDI as well is also a useful tool as I can record straight to my DAW without having to setup my actual DI as well.
Overall, this head blew me out of the water in terms of expectations. It's pleasantly loud enough to use with my band and has an adequate number of features to qualify it as a must-have head in my opinion.
