Hartley Peavey founded Peavey Electronics in 1965, one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of musical and professional audio equipment. Since its foundation, Peavey has been privately owned and has grown massively from the company’s humble beginnings in Hartley's basement in the 1950s. Although Peavey Electronics produces a wide variety of equipment, a few notable designs stand out because of their popularity and/or use by major professional musicians:
The 5150/6505/6534+ Series of Guitar Amplifiers - These amplifiers (collectively, the 5150 series) and speaker cabinets were the result of a collaboration with Eddie Van Halen. In 2004, Peavey and Eddie Van Halen parted ways, with Eddie taking the 5150 brand with him. This resulted in the renaming of the amplifier as the 6505, with slightly updated styling but original circuitry. In 2010, Peavey released a new amplifier for the 6505 line, the 6534+. It is much like the 6505+, the difference being the 6534 has EL34 power tubes instead of the 6L6 power tubes found on the standard 6505 amplifiers, giving it a more British flavor. Read More>
