  • Pure Metal Tone

    As reviewed by Matt Smith on 8/31/2010

    I just recently got this amp and cannot stop playing it. When i first got the amp i cranked the gain (Pre and Post Stages) and was amazed at how much i got out of the amp. You can get even more if you mess with the prescene (low end) and resonence (high end) knobs. I also run a Tube screamer through and the sound is pure metal. I higly suggest gettin a noise suppresor though if you plan on having the amp above 3 but it is still a monster of an amp and virtually indestructible.

  • I Tip my hat to Peavey 6505+

    As reviewed by Ty Schultz _ on 12/1/2012

    Seeing I bought my 2nd 6505+ at GC I thought I would drop my 2 cents on this head ~ (Full discloser I still have my 1st head I ever bought the 6505+ For the sale price I couldnt pass up getting a second one) Even off Sale this is the one your looking for to buy. For 3 years of bouncing around in the back of a Box Truck from here & there & I have had NO issues at all with my 1st head,This things a TANK & Looks like a just bought it the other day ,When I show up for sound check or the Practice~Hall its like greating a old friend = ) Now as far as this being a metal only head,I would like to disagree a bit on this part....Your looking for a tube head so I'm betting you have the pedals to go with it = ) I can Dial in a Albert King,SRV,Stone's,Beatles,Chuck Berry Tone in a Blink of a eye not a problem. Now as far as Playing Metal ~ YEA this is it !!! Stop looking The versitility of this head is is amazing I can do the 5FDP,Trivium,Slayer,Megadeth tones & drop to a Alice Cooper/AC}DC Tone at a drop of a hat. I do recommend you also get a Sonic Stomp ,Sonic Maximizer by BBE (IT IS NOT A EQ,READ ABOUT IT) as you should have with any tube amp & Monster Cables (They DO MAKE A DIFFERNCE) (Just my thoughts here)I have been through so many Cable's & Pedal's over the years & I ALWAYS come back to these Brands to work best with my Peavey no matter what type of music I play Slow & Steady Wins as long as it's LOUD =)

  • Wowww!

    As reviewed by ZachL on 8/6/2010

    This amp blew me away when I played it at Guitar Center. It is by far the best amp I've played through or heard (and that's a lot of mesas and marshalls). This thing put them to shame. It has smooth but heavy distortion, an awesome crunch sound and a clear clean tone, not to mention its LOUD!!! Sounds almost exactly like a dual recto in my oppinion but for half the price of one (the half stack is a few hundred $$ less than just the dual recto head). Totaly worth it and will definatly be my next amp! Oh and did I mention that its versitile? It can put out most any tone you want and sound amazing doing it.
